About Chris Caldwell

Big fans of the Family Islands and Long Island in particular! Originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, we know a beautiful, relaxing, soul enhancing vacation spot when we see one. And the fishing is off the hook, too. =)

Chris Caldwell purchased this villa in 2009

Why Chris Caldwell chose Bahamas

Beautiful Home, Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

We found the house to be very well built, in excellent condition ,comfortable, nicely decorated and well situated near Salt Pond. The owners and their caretakers are very helpful and friendly, as is everyone on the island.

The view from here is majestic and one never tires of watching the ocean and the beautiful sunrise !

The hikes up and down the beach reveal a beautiful and almost uninhabited coast. The skin diving right in front of the house offers a great variety of fish and neat coral.

We look forward to returning ASAP.

Could not have asked for a more pristine place to spend a week with my family, including 2 grandson's. A true back to nature experience. Caribbean water crystal clear and spectacular sand beach..

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A great family vacation. House is well-appointed. Outdoor living space is just as nice as inside. After the second night, I stopped noticing there was no television in the bedroom. Instead, you fall asleep listening to the ocean! Long Island is a jewel, and I'm glad to have visited before it gets "discovered". Breath-taking beaches; thoughtful, considerate residents and an unhurried tempo. David and family manage the property, and was always available to answer questions and had great recommendations. We will always remember his kindness. This house was on par with a 5-star hotel!

We had a wonderful time at The Osprey's Nest! The house is amazing and the beach is perfect. We have gone to Salt Pond a few times now and always look forward to the next visit. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing, peaceful vacation.

Beautiful spot for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 10 year old daughter have travelled to many of the Bahama (family) Islands, I have to say...Long island is now our favourite. The Osprey Nest is definitely one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. The house is so well stocked,with the best of cooking utensils, dishes, Wonderful comfortable beds, high end linens. Cant say enough good about the accommodations. You definitely would not be disappointed !! Some of the pictures on this site could be updated as the landscaping has filled in wonderfully. The vegetation around the house is now nice and lush. We were able to pick a big sweet watermelon from the garden. If you like beach walking, shelling, looking for beautiful coloured beach glass. The beaches right at the house, go on for ever and ever. There are wonderful rock formations to look at. Really fun walking the beach every day to see what the ocean has brought in.... Both big and little kids would love it. Chris and Ed were very prompt getting back to us with any questions we had.

The house manager David and his wife Malhalia were fantastic and catered to our every whim.

Hamiltons Cave is a must see... Very worthwhile.
