    Unique experience. The bungalow was exactly as they stated in the booking information so we knew what we were getting into when visiting Ochopee. I loved the outdoors, all of nature surrounding us on our overnight stay----birds, alligator in the causeway located directly behind us, peacock roaming the grounds and the serene location---Everglades presented vast variety of grasses, trees, causeways. I wanted to get away from it all, and that is exactly what we got. I loved it. This is not an experience for someone who does not like to camp! Woot! Thank you.

    The only thing, we looked for wood to experience a camp fire----no where to purchase.

    The location is not as described in the add. They did give us our money back so we could stay elsewhere. For that I was grateful.

    The coziness of the hut. The view out of the back of the hut, the deck attached to the hut. Gorgeous sunset, saw deer in the field in the morning.

    The bath house and showers were very dirty. The advertised picture is a beautiful picture of the hut and the field beyond. The other view is of a campground that is less than beautiful.

    I would have to say it was my fault - I thought I was renting the elevated structure which I believe would have been much nicer. When I was told that has not charged my credit card because they wanted people to be able to see what they were getting prior to paying, I should have known better and taken a look - had I done so, I would have driven on down the road.

    Unique with a getting back to nature feel.

    "cottage" was in a scruffy camp site with campers and RVs near by. No electricity or water. Nearest facilities, the washroom, were around a lake.

    We stayed there because it was the only place we could find.

    Extremely expensive ($150) for no amenitites: no plumbing, no ventilation (AC only), really nothing more than a bed. Very bad mattress. The bathroom was in the bathhouse of the campground--it was dirty, and a walk from the cottage

    The camp is fair enough, some lakes, very old facilities but real Evergaldes at last.

    The price is totally insane!!!! We were supposed to sleep on a chequee cottage that ended up in a bed with four concrete walls around, smallest room ever and zero indian experience as advertised.

    The idea of the chickee hut overlooking the Big Cypress Swamp is great. The hut itself is quaint, with a pleasant decor appropriate for its location. However, other aspects of its execution leave much to be desired.........

    The description on the web site does not reflect reality. The chickee hut (there is only one) is located in a rather down-at-heel camping ground/RV site in the Big Cypress National Preserve. The shared facilities are adequate, barely. They were not cleaned in the period that we were there: the clod of hair and cigarette butt were still in the shower recess of the female toilet block on the third day of our stay. The chickee hut does not have an air conditioner. This is stated on the web site. It also does not have electricity, except for an extension cord (for a fan) from a neighbouring camp site, This meant that the door could not shut properly as the cord was wedged in it, so the hut was not mosquito-proof. There is some lighting by (battery-operated) candles but otherwise there is no light after sunset. There is no pool, only a couple of ponds, which are not suitable for swimming. The staff were largely absent, perhaps a good thing. We were welcomed by a fellow wearing only shorts and gumboots, who led us to the hut and explained the set up. The only other staff member we encountered was a woman. She asked me, while I was in the toilet, how many toilet rolls were in the cubicle. When I answered, "Three", she exclaimed, "I will kill him", and left in a fury. The price charged is outrageous, given the poor facilities. We have stayed in similar 'native' accommodation elsewhere, in Africa and New Caledonia. It can be a wonderful, enjoyable experience. However, the chickee hut in the Big Cypress National Preserve needs a huge amount of work to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

    Ummmm? We can talk about it.

    It is overpriced and under described. If it had cost $40 or $50... it would have been great. But for $179.... it is outrageous.
