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.
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.
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!

Dan & Sara fell in love with Long Island 10 years ago when they were travelling the Bahamas on their sailboat.
They started building their house in 2003 and built the entire place themselves. In 2008 they built The Cottage, so they could share the island with you, and in 2015 decided to add a Boathouse/Garage to the property...And now they have the 2 Bedroom apartment with wonder views of the water.
They spend the winters in the Bahamas and the summers in the States traveling along with their adopted Bahamian Potcake Dog- Bambi.
Sara Werra purchased this cottage in 2006

Shops are convenient, as are restaurants and bars, if you don't feel like cooking in the wonderful kitchen.

I had all i needed for my stay, would recommend it to anyone visiting the island.
Anyone looking to rent a place on Long Island in the Bahamas would be lucky to find this winner! Not only is it a perfect place to relax, put up your feet with a mere 5 minute walk to the beach, but it comes with owners who are attentive to your needs, but ensuring you your privacy. Let's talk about that beach. Almost all the time we were there ( a month) we were the only people on the beach. Shades of blue anchored by up to your ankles sand. The perfect beach is your very "own" beach. The cottage has everything you'd need and it is clean and well maintained. Kayaks? got it, barbecue? got it, screened porch? got it, hammock? got it....you get it?
The owners, Sara and Dan are very involved in the community and will steer you in the right direction for whatever floats your boat. Happy hour at Club Washington on Wed. night, Rake and Scrape at The Green Leaf on Friday night or just where to find the best beaches on the Atlantic side.
You won't go wrong here. "All is good"
The cottage was even better than described. It was very comfortable, well outfitted and in a nice spot. The things we really appreciated - the kitchen was well equipped with nice pots and pans to cook on, a nice gas stove, and a pantry with some essential items so we didnt have to supply everything from scratch. The internet worked great and that was nice so we could stay in touch and watch netflix. Sara and Dan are very nice and accommodating, ready with suggestions and other help. They planted our own little spice garden right outside the door and gave us veggies from their garden. Our daughter stayed a few days and the pull out sofa was fine for her. The location was mid island and not far from the main store, walking distance from a lovely beach. They offered us the use of their sea kayak. The island is very relaxing, nice people and great beaches. Highly recommend.
Sara's cottage is incredibly beautiful and spacious. The cottage is equipped with practically everything that a visitor would need in Long Island, including drinking water, bath needs, kayaks, snorkeling gear and a comfortable bed. The cottage is nestled in a quiet area, with close proximity to the beach. Sara was also extremely friendly and helpful with plenty of advice to give about the island. We truly had an amazing experience. Highly, highly recommended and will definitely stay with Sara whenever I'm in Long Island again.
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.
Sara and Dan were wonderful hosts. The Palmirage was an excellent well kept cottage - everything you could ask for.-bikes, kayak, towels, full kitchen, nice clean bathroom, washer/dryer, beach chairs, etc. Sara was great with giving directions and pointing out great places to eat and visit. The locals are very friendly and I highly recommend the farmers market on Sat. mornings. I highly recommend staying there.....it will be on our list to return. Thank You Sara! I hope your friend was able to find the dog!
