Whymms house description
Our vacation home is located on Long Island in the Bahamas. Here you can get away from it all. Fully furnished home comprised of 3 buildings all interconnected by open bridges and a central sun deck provide a unique and fun layout with various rental options. The master bathroom has an outside private exterior shower as well the home has a unique private outdoor shower which can be used by any of the units. Each building has a powder room with vanity and toilet. The home is just steps away from the beachfront. Beautiful sunsets over the water and sunrise views over the hills. Long Island is one of the most unique islands in the Bahamas. For many people, it is considered the hidden Bahamas. On the northern tip there are dramatic sea cliffs overlooking the dark blue water where Columbus anchored the Santa Maria when he discovered the island in 1492. In his ship’s log, an entry mentions taking on fresh water, trading with the natives, and notes that this was the most beautiful island he had ever seen. The beaches are incredible. Talcum-powder fine white sand and crushed pink and brown shell cover some of the most stunning beaches in the Bahamas. The water is clear, warm, and turquoise blue. From hillside perches, where cool trade winds blow, you can look down to stretches of spectacular coast and water so pristine you can see multiple shades of blue in the depths of the ocean. Yet this island has much more to offer than its natural beauty; it is safe, easily accessible by air, close to the United States, and home to friendly English-speaking locals.

Heaven On Earth

This is a gorgeous house only steps away from a beautiful, private beach. Comfortable and peaceful only begin to describe this little slice of heaven on earth. The homeowners are wonderful - very accommodating. The island is a delight - not "touristy" at all. The beaches are breathtaking and the natives are lovely people. I can't wait for my return visit!

What a wonderful home this is! We had such a great time exploring beach after beach, each more beautiful than the last! The locals are so very kind and we made friendships that will last a lifetime. Afternoons were spent rocking on the porch after a day at the beach where the water was the most amazing blues. Evenings were spent lying on the deck watching the stars or out for drinks and dancing. What a beautiful home, with everything so well thought out. It had all the comforts! Everything was so perfect from the moment we arrived! It was very hard to leave such a paradise, but be sure that we will be returning soon!!!!

Fun in the sun!

We have been so lucky to have been able to experience this beautiful place three times in the last 5 years and every time we do there are so many wonderful new touches to the place. The owners have done a remarkable job on making this place so comfortable and enjoyable. There were 7 of us in our party and it accommodated us perfectly! The beach is so close and the people on the island are the sweetest! It's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives and to experience a place that is far from all of that. We had a 50th birthday party for a special friend in our group at Deal's and what a time we had!!! We can not wait to get back there.

That about sums up our vacation theme. This cottage and its close proximity to the Carribean side of the island made our stay enchanted. We could see the sun early and all thru the day til sunset. We got a full dose of vitamin D for all of the nearly 2weeks we were there in Jan of 2011. There was almost always a breeze because we were above the tree line and sun bathing was comfortable on the deck. In the evening we retreated to the screened portion of the west facing porch for cocktails before dinner. With a rented car our days were filled with sight seeing and beach combing of both the Atlantic and Carribean sides of the island practically tourist free, guided Bone fishing and just plain relaxing in a beach chair after a sort stroll down a picturesque path to the sugar sand beach. If you want a laid back vacation where you control the pace of your day,this is the place.
