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

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 14, 2016

As the VRBO Bear, it is my duty to continue to travel the globe in search of the perfect vacation for you and your friends and family. My obligations this time took me to the Bahamas, specifically Long Island. Are you looking for a quiet getaway enjoying the most beautiful beaches in the world, almost all to yourself? While staying at a beautiful house with all the amenities of home seated right in front of your own beach? Then look no further than the Osprey Nest. Long Island is a short flight from Nassau, and has some of the best beaches in the world, including Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest salt water blue hole in the world. There are dozens of beaches, plenty of fishing and snorkeling, and sightseeing at places like Hamilton Cave and the Columbus Monument. But the main attraction for me is the Osprey Nest. Near the settlement of Salt Pond, the Osprey Nest is on the Atlantic side of the island, and backs up to a protected cove. The house is 4 air-conditioned bedrooms surrounding a great room with a living area, dining area and kitchen. The house is wonderfully decorated, updated and comfortable. Everything you need to cook with is in the kitchen. Outside large sliding glass doors is a huge deck with a dining table and seating areas overlooking the cove. And steps away is a soft sand beach with perfectly clear blue water. No need to pack up a cooler, fight for chairs, or hunt for food and water. You can walk back and forth in seconds between your home and an amazing beach all day long. In addition to the property, the house managers are fantastic. They will help you get around, and suggest places to visit and things to do. There are grocery stores and restaurants nearby. But I wouldn’t blame you if you stayed at your backyard beach the whole time like I did. Safe travels!

Our traveling group of six friends loved our stay at the Osprey Nest and recommend it to others!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in beautiful properties on other islands in the Bahamas, but this is our favorite!! The home was so comfortable and the location was beyond our expectations. We could enjoy the private cove/beach to snorkel, swim, and catch fish. Able to enjoy long walks on beautiful beaches accessible from the house. Stayed at our property often because we enjoyed it. Charles and Theresa, the caretakers were very helpful and we enjoyed time with them and their wonderful family. Long Island had many beautiful sights and beaches. We plan to return!!

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.

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!
