It’s open. Fully. We stumbled upon it today, weren’t sure, but are salivating over the magical moments the family will have when we staycation here. And the best part: we will bring the doggies!!!!!

The children and the dogs will so love this refreshing view from the balcony at ‘Calusa’ that overlooks the Mahogany and hardwood hammock to the blue waters of the bay, birds, boats and beach. And the dog tiki’s along the Hammock Pathways.

As soon as we parked the car the ‘new’ design and decor reeled us both in like willing fish. No question about style or trend setting here. Bakers Cay has a stunning new look. I’m not into promotional content. But this place is refreshing. So where to begin?

That ‘ahhhhh yes’ moment when the seating arrangements all lead to this view…and the cappuccino is really really yummy. Delivered with a very genuine smile. We found out 90% of the staff were retained after Irma. Jobs were found within the company elsewhere and accommodation secured for those in need. All this was not publicized. But it illustrates that really good streak in humanity.

And here is the Calusa Restaurant View

Dog daze at the beach. When you check in your four legged friends get their own doggy bag. And the wee tiny Tiki dog huts are sprinkled around the place where a dog may stretch out in the shade!
