Where is Long Island: Villa del Sol is located in Clarence Town, Long Island, Bahamas. Long Island is one of the more southern islands in the archipelago. It is an island of contrasts, featuring the rugged Atlantic coastline on the western side and powder soft beaches and the turquoise waters of the eastern/Caribbean side. The climate is gorgeous all year round, although the summers can be quite hot. It is the place for those who want something different, untouched, peaceful, natural. Most of the activities on the island are centered around the sea, fishing (deep-sea, reef, fly), swimming, snorkeling, diving or just plain lazing around on the beach, usually with no one else in sight. It is easy to get to, you can fly into one of two airports, Deadmans Cay or Stella Maris, or pull up at one of the marinas in your sea craft of choice. The weekly mail boats also provide the more adventurous a means of getting here. The perfect vacation choice for families or those who feel the need to get away from it all.

The people...: Native Long Islanders are among the friendliest folk you will ever meet. A resilient people, they have learned the art of surviving off the land and sea. Fishing is the main industry and some farming is done throughout the island. At any given time you can find an abundance of fresh fruit in season, like mangoes, sugar apples, juicy water melon, pineapples, freshly cut bunches of bananas and many others. If you are lucky you may even get invited to share a meal or two with local families. The menu of choice would be seafood, local mutton (goat or sheep) and a variety of dishes like peas n rice, plantains, etc. So for a holiday experience marked by great family fun, friendly people and fabulous food Long Island is the place.

                            We could not have been happier with this house. I honestly do not have anything negative to say. The owners, Danny & Ramona, we so hospitable, welcoming and were always there for advice about the island. They met us at the airport when we landed and organized our rental car to be waiting for us. We then followed them to the house and were given a brief tour of the island along the way. It was a great was the get a quick introduction to the island. The house was amazing! The house and all the furnishing are all brand-new and it showed. We had 6 people staying in the house and did not feel at all cramped. We used both the pull out sofa and the roll away bed and both were quite comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with all the basic dishes and cookware. The bathroom was quite large and very clean. There were plenty of towels and they even offer a complimentary towel cleaning service every couple of days. I would have to say that the best part of the house is the fresh ocean breeze. The house had so many windows and door that the Air Conditioner was not necessary. It is so great to be able to have all the windows open and listen to the ocean from the living room or the amazing porch that circles the whole house. As I said before I can't think of a single negative thing about the island or the house. It was just an amazing vacation and the perfect vacation home.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, pet owners, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                            Owner response: We are so happy that all of our guests so far have had the same type of experience. They are always amazed at the house and how it's tucked away in it's own little space, yet so close to everything - the ocean/beach, restaurants, bars, shops - even the church of your choice! Clarence Town is a quaint, picturesque little town, with breathtaking views and you can see it all from the wrap around verandahs of Villa del Sol, a house that was designed for relaxation and rejuvenation.

                            Great weather, great beaches and wonderful people! A feature that really impresses us and that has improved steadily over the years is the communications capability here at the Villa, The equipment onboard includes a flat panel TV with cable TV connection, local telephone and broadband internet service. We bring our laptop computer, Vonage Adapter and phone and miscellaneous cables, such as an HDMI cable. The bottom line is capability for Cable TV, DVD, CD, Internet Radio, local phone, International phone, all with about a 20-minute set-up/tear-down cycle. This indoor capability offers a perfect complement to the great variety of outdoor activities here on Long Island. Leo and Julie Marcoux

                            Owner response: Leo and Julie have been staying at the Villa for the last 3 winters - 6 weeks at a time. They are great guests, more like family now. We pop by from time to time to make sure everything is going well and it is so wonderful to hear the lovely music as Leo enjoys his concerts via his terrific communications set up. Because of the unique location of the house, there is no chance of disturbing anyone and so the sound of the beautiful classical music adds another dimension to the lovely surropundings. As Leo mentioned, we've now added cable TV for those guests who might want to catch up on the news or watch a movie, even though there is a DVD player with a selection of up to date movies also. Free internet access and exceptional cellular service is also a huge hit with most folks. The view of the ocean from the verandah promises many opportunities to eplore the abundance of gorgeous beaches nearby. So come, stay for week or stay for a day, but come and see us anyway!

                            We found the house as described in the web. We felt there being at home, relaxed atmospere, spacy rooms, quiet neigbourhood. Well equipped kitchen, shower outside. Many thanks to Ramona & Dan who helped us getting the perfect start in Long Island. This was our first time in the Bahamas. When we come back to Long Island, we will stay again in Villa del Sol!

                            Owner response: It was a real pleasure to welcome Thorsten and Heiko as guests at Villa del Sol. They truly enjoyed their stay at the house and their overall visit to the island. Dan and I enjoyed spending time with them and helping them to make the most of their time.They enjoyed the warm summery weather and the quiet and privacy of the house - great guests! Wuld love to have them back anytime. Thanks Guys.

                            The owners, Ramona and Danny, were so welcoming, helpful and accomodating. The Villa del Sol is the most comfortable home we have rented, the beds were sooo comfy and linens very fresh and like home! We rented a car arranged for us (very reasonable) and visited one or two new gorgeous beaches every day, many times we were the only people on the beach. We explored every day and in the late afternoon at cocktail time, we used the coolers provided and took beer or rum and snacks to enjoy on the beach...it was bliss! We bought really fresh, caught that day, Yellow tails, snappers and groupers to cook on the outdoor gas grill...best fresh fish ever! The mosquitoes are a bit of a bother after sundown but there was plenty of insect repellent provided. All in all if you want comfort, friendly welcoming islanders, laid back find your own entertainment on the beach, or fishing, or snorkeling, or sleeping, being bone idle in total bliss...this is a place for you. It was a really relaxing and renewing 7 days for us. We will return! Thank you to Ramona and Danny, you are the best hosts.

It was great that you came to Long Island to celebrate such an important event and we are delighted to know that you had a great time. It is good to know when visitors like yourselves find our island welcoming and relaxing. It was really nice meeting you both and we do look forward to your return. You were great guests and we would love to have you come again - anytime.

                            We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Villa del Sol. The Villa is attractively furnished, clean and well maintained. Ramona and Danny were the perfect hosts. Ramona responded quickly to all of our email questions and Danny helped us with transportation from the airport, getting groceries and arranging our car rental. They greeted us with welcome drinks and took us on an orientation tour of Clarence Town and the south end of the island. We loved the beach at Gordon's for swimming and shelling and even saw a wild donkey on the way there. Galloway Beach had great scenery and good sand for walking. Salt Pond and the two resorts at the north end of the island were beautiful. We were welcome at the resorts to walk around and to have beverages or a meal. Clarence Town had good snorkelling around the coral between the dock and Gems at Paradise. You can use the kayak on a calm day to get there. The restaurants in Clarence Town and the restaurant in Miley had excellent food and reasonable prices. We bought fresh lobster from the fishery in Salt Pond and it was very tasty done on the BBQ. The people on Long Island were very welcoming and polite. People went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. Ena from Clarence Town explained straw weaving, "Beetle" shared some of his sugar bananas with us, the local fishermen explained how they catch fish, the couple who make the shell jewellery in Clarence Town explained their craft and the husband even played a Canadian song on his guitar for us. If you are looking for a quiet and safe stay in the tropics, we would suggest you consider Villa del Sol. (Just bring a little bug spray for the sand fleas that come out at dusk.)

                            The property is fantastic, the hosts are brilliant and the warm Bahamas breeze completes a truly relaxing escape. Danny and Ramona went the extra mile every step of the way in what was a last minute getaway booked literally at the last minute. Ramona and Danny not only collected us from the airport to take us to their beautiful property but they organized our return flights from Long Island back to Nassau, organized a rental car to be waiting for us at the property on arrival and furthermore greeted us with champagne and the local Conch Fritters on arrival. The house itself is immaculate; clean and spacious with everything that you will need including air-conditioning if required or let that great Bahamas breeze blow through the house. We stayed for 3 nights. You will need a car on this island if you wish to explore and Ramona will organize one for you which you can fix up with the company on arrival. There are some lovely and interesting places to visit on Long Island. We recommend "Blue Hole" nearby at Deans, dinner at the small cafe at the marina right near the house, driving north to Cape Santa Maria to swim, have a drink and watch the sunset and also heading south to Gordon's beach for hours of uninterrupted relaxation in a truly amazing and completely deserted beach paradise. This place is absolutely worth the short flight away from all the resorts, noise and casino lights on Nassau. It takes you to the REAL Bahamas and what the islands should have always been; beautiful, warm, friendly and worry free.
