    Just wanted to post that I stayed in the Rum House for a week between Xmas and New Years.

    If you're doing a lot of diving at Ginnie, this is definitely a great place to stay! Quiet, clean, and everything works. Not a whole lot else that you can ask for in cave country to be honest. Ran into @Capt Jim Wyatt and Gwen on New Years Eve when I was working in the morning and had the door open for fresh air which apparently caught the attention of the outside security camera, whoops!
    If you're staying here, there may or may not be ice in the freezer depending on how nice the previous tenants were, so if you need some the first night you may want to bring some with you.
    Cooking utensils are a bit limited, so if you're doing a lot of cooking and are driving in you may want to bring some with you, but that's normal in any rental house. It certainly has enough to get by and I left a pair of tongs there for anyone using the grill.

    I usually couch surf with @The Chairman which puts me closer to the caves that I am normally diving in that area, but when I have a bunch of diving scheduled at Ginnie like this last trip, I will definitely be coming back

    Thanks again Jim!

    It's a nice place run by even nicer people! :D The location is optimal for most as well.
