  • Great stay!

    "We stayed a week at Slipstream with our family of 8 and had a great time! Carla was awesome in answering all of our questions very timely and was very helpful. House is funky in its design, but very practical. The gardens in the front welcome you with lots of green and walking in through the doors you immediately see through right to the ocean! The main building is spacious and bright and welcoming with a slight breeze blowing at most hours of the day. We loved sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee in the morning or a drink in the afternoon! So comfortable. Lots of deck chairs and shady spots or sunny spots to warm up after a dip. My husband and I stayed in a lower room with our 8 and 10 year olds sleeping in the daybeds. There is a shutter/door for privacy which was nice. My parents stayed in the other downstairs room and my 2 sisters stayed in the upstairs rooms. The rooms were quite comfortable and very spacious. The kitchen and house had everything we needed and we had some very delicious meals at the house. You have to be conscious about the water, and so we had to time laundry, dishwasher and showers, but it all worked out fine. This was not a luxury house and so my parents had a little harder time of it, but overall I loved the place with it's beach front and abundance of space and privacy should you need it, even with 8 of us there. The beach is a little rockier than the pictures, so you need to have water shoes until you get farther out, but the kids had a great time in the water, and we could be in there with them, or keeping an eye out from the deck, which was nice with kids! There were very friendly neighbors that walked the beach and provided lots of good information. The Hillside grocery store had seriously anything you need, although expensive since it is an island. It closes at 10 on Sunday mornings, so plan accordingly! Our best meal out was at Chez Pierre's (call first he needs to know you are coming) and fish tacos at the Outer Edge Grill in Clarencetown. The best part of the island is that there is no shopping (couldn't even find a t-shirt for the kids!) only exploring cool beaches on both Atlantic and Caribbean sides! Overall a great time"

  • Dave and Gayla Montana

    "We would highly recommend this property to any couple. Sara and Dan thought of everything- including use of bikes and kayak and supplying drinking water at no extra charge. They have a great T.V., lots of movies and satellite music. Their cottage is the best we've rented in seven trips to Bahamas outislands and our fourth time to Long Island.We also rented our nicest car from Annie's-the car is a must as there is lots to see on Long Island. Sara suggested we tour Cartwright's Cave, which was right on as a must-see. We love the people on Long Island, the great bonefishing, and the many beautiful deserted beaches. We will return and thanks again to Sara and Dan for the best stay."

  • Beautiful Home, Beautiful Island!

    "This was our first time in the Bahamas, and I must say will not be our last! The house was absolutely beautiful! The view of the cove from the house every morning was breathtaking! The caretakers of the house were very helpful in answering all our questions and where to go for food, etc. My kids are already asking when we can come back here.... I am also looking forward to returning as well. We went to Deans Blue Hole, Hamilton's Cave and Cape Santa Maria - All a must see! The locals were very friendly. Definitely rent an SUV to get around the island. Thank you so much for the best Vacation experience ever!!!"
