Rainbow Bay apartment description
Long Reach is a lovely, secluded two apartment home with panoramic views of the Caribbean and Atlantic sides of the island. Enjoy the breeze and view from the large wrap around deck. And star gazing is spectacular. Yard and garden boast tropical flowers and fruit trees.
Take a leisurely walk or jog along the Atlantic, or meander along the roads in this charmingly beautiful underdeveloped piece of paradise.
Walk through a tide-carved coral chasm to our favorite sheltered beach, and stretch your towel in the shade of the cave, or enjoy the sun on the beach. Several secluded beaches are easy walks from Long Reach.
Restaurant, boat launch, and tennis courts are a short walk away.

Wonderful and relaxing
Wonderful and relaxing
I would give this place an 'excellent' review. Clean, well-maintained, beautiful grounds and so pretty. We were in the lower apartment and basically had everything we needed - and everything we needed to take to the beach (beach chairs, beach bags, etc. They even have snorkel gear, but we brought our own.) We only found out later, that there 'was' a path to the beach. But no matter, we rented a car and explored the pristine and gorgeous beaches. The only downside (and it wasn't a downside for us, really) is that you need to rent a car to get around. I don't think there was bus service on the island. The snorkeling was wonderful, (try just next to the Rainbow Inn near the tennis courts - and snorkel next to the overhanging rocks) and the beach on the very northern end of the island is second to none. At the end of the day it's nice to come home, grab a few lawn chairs and sit outside.

Owner response: Thank you Linda and Rik. It is long, thin island and a car is necessary to see everything. Blessings
The apartment is amazing and the location perfect! It is fully furnished. There is everything you need, also an Italian moka for your coffee! We had the luck to know Bobby. She is a great host! We highly recommend this place.

We stayed in the Cabana at Long Reach last week and it was such a nice way to spend a vacation. Everything that you need is there, right down to beach towels, chairs, snorkeling equipment, etc. The Cabana is decorated so nicely and the owners have provided information about the area in a booklet that was very helpful to a first-time visitor. The property itself is beautiful and well-maintained, and the neighborhood was great for taking walks. We walked down to the Rainbow Inn several times and snorkeling is nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful winter getaway for those who desire peace, tranquility and a beautiful island to explore. Our hosts Mark and Bobbi Updegraff helped us find our way around the island by compiling a book with all of the attractions. Our accomodations were clean, comfortable, and enjoyable.

My husband, Marc, and I stayed at Long Reach for our honeymoon as a wonderful gift from the homeowners, Bobbi and Mark Updegraff. We couldn't have been more pleased with everything. It was paradise! The house is beautiful and is fully stocked with anything you might need, the area is secluded yet you arent far from places like the Rainbow Inn or Big Rock, and the Bahamians are sooooo friendly and helpful! We particularly appreciated the book the Updegraff's put together, listing all information on anything you could want to do on the island. So helpful! We also appreciated the book they had on the beaches of Eluethra. We went to several each day and it was sheer paradise. Marc and I STRONGLY recommend this vacation rental. You truly won't be disappointed!

We are young people and Long Reach was the perfect location for us. Quite near there is great snorkeling - Long Reach lays in the center of the island, so the perfect spot to explore the full beauty ot the island. also surfing spots are not far, but you need a car. Long Reach is perfect!! - fully equiped - you only have to bring your cloths - the rest is there - we had a great time, perfect for full relaxation - never saw so much stars, nice beaches and friendly people...we fully recommend! hope to see you there caro & michi (age 30)

Hello Mark and Roberta, I am writing to let you know our stay at Long Reach was pleasant and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more. When I saw the quilts on the walls I knew we had made the right choice. As a quilter, I appreciated the design and color of your quilts. I have quilts hanging all over my house too. John and the offspring -- they're too old to call children anymore -- enjoyed the fishing, and we all enjoyed the beach and the sea. The night sky viewing was amazing -- you truly have a spot in paradise. Thanks for allowing us to share it.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Long Reach for a long deserved vacation. We arrived to find a beautiful, secluded home with an unbelievable view of the oceans from the deck. We experienced snorkeling for the first time at Rainbow Beach. Can you imagine a 5 foot Barracuda next to you as you are snorkeling in 30 feet of crystal clear water. We practically lived in the water from morning to night. The vacation home was a actually that, a home away from home. It is very cozy and homelike. We hope to return in the near future. Thanks Bobbi and Mark for the opportunity to visit your little piece of heaven. Jerry & Linda
