About the Property

Nestled in Tropical Landscaping, a short walk to the beach

The 1 Bedroom /1 Bath Cottage provides the privacy needed for a peaceful vacation. The Cottage at Palmirage is the perfect place to take things easy and unwind.

Palmirage has two inviting, relaxing vacation homes that will make you feel welcome. Uniquely designed accommodations nestled in lush gardens and just off a 2 1/2 mile long nearly deserted beach. Our other property has it's own driveway and privacy. The 2 Bedroom/1 Bath Boathouse is on the second floor above the Garage/Boathouse. Sweeping views of the Exuma Sound and fresh breezes make this a great vacation spot to share with friends.

Both units include all amenities. Towels and Linens, Beach Gear, Grill, Screened Porch, Sun Deck, Gourmet Cooking tools for the Full Kitchen (complete with ice-maker!), Shared use of Kayaks and Bicycles. Maps and Guides to local spots.

Curl up in the Hammock with a cold drink and a book. Take your fishing pole out to the bight and catch your dinner, then bring it back to the fish cleaning station and BBQ an evening of fresh seafood. Or ask us to get some fresh fish for you and have it prepared while you just relax. Kayak out to the nearby Cays for a morning of snorkeling. Or just pull up a beach chair and enjoy the water.

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. 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.

If you have any special requests please let us know. If you need some groceries, beer, liquor or soda we'd be happy to pick that up for you so it will be ready upon arrival...nothing like a nice cold drink after a day of travelling.

Same thing with arrangements for Rental Cars, Fishing guides, restaurants..whatever !!! We are here to take the mystery out of Long Island so you can have a stress-free stay and pack in as much fun as possible while you are here.
Veggie Garden is going strong! Help yourself to whatever is ripe today!! Zucchini, Tomatoes, Peppers, Lettuce, Radishes and Cucumbers are plentiful!! Kale, Broccoli Rab, Carrots, Tomatillos and Eggplant soon to come!

Don't miss the opportunity to explore Long Island, which is the most attractive of all the Bahamas out islands, with quaint settlements dotted between gentle rolling hills. Here nature is still unspoiled. Historical sites remind us of the interesting past and where people are amongst the friendliest in the Bahamas. This is the perfect spot for a Bahamas vacation of a lifetime!
