  • What a beautiful spot!

    "We had a wonderful 10-day stay at this property. It was the perfect location for me, my husband and our two boys (ages 10 and 13). Ron was very helpful leading up to our trip, always ready with answers to my many questions. Once we landed, his caretakers Nancy and Ernest were great on-the-ground resources as well. The property is located on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay (protected by three small cays, which helps to keep the wind down). Most times we were completely alone on the beach, or we might see just a small handful of other people. When the water is calm it's a great spot for swimming and kayaking. Twice the wind was calm enough that we took the kayaks across the bay to the uninhabited cay. We found amazing shells there, and of course another beautiful beach. My son bought a fishing pole on the island and tried fishing the blue hole almost every day. He never managed to land anything (did have a few bites), but it was great fun for him. When the wind was calm the boys also snorkeled this blue hole and did see a few fish, rays and turtles. We even saw wild pigs a few times on the trail leading down to the ocean! The island is very driveable, and although there are a few restaurants close by we found ourselves driving closer to the mid- and upper-island for a mid-afternoon meal and some activities most days. (Tiny's Hurricane Hole, the restaurant at Cape Santa Maria Resort, Chez Pierre and the very nearby Flying Fish Marina were all good choices for nice meals.) Otherwise, we cooked at the house, which was well-equipped with spices, pots and pans, and just about anything you might need. There's more to do mid- and upper-island, but we would definitely still choose this home on a return trip. There are a lot of places on the island that do not accommodate a beach, swimming or kayaking experience (either because they are too rocky or too windy). This spot on Lochabar Bay allows for all of those so if you're wanting a low-key vacation with lots of relaxation and natural beauty, this is the perfect spot! It was hard to leave after 10 days because it was truly already feeling like "HomeAway.""

  • Relaxing family vacation

    "We were able to stay at Sunset House recently. Carol was a wonderful help in guiding the transfer from the airport to Long Island. She was there to greet us on arrival. The fridge was filled with our groceries. A quick overview of the house and it was time for dinner. After a day of travel it was nice to come into the house and smell Ursulas dinner. We refreshed and had a wonderful dinner. Dishes done at the end...I'm on vacation!! We made several excursions from the house to see the island. Dean's Blue Hole and Flying Fish Marina were fun. The boys fished from the boat, the daughter and boyfriend toured the cove in the boat. We had a little trouble with our lack of knowledge of outboard motors, the guest next door came and gave a hand. So I made a small Irish Bread loaf for her. Sunsets, star gazing, birds singing in the morning and not a sound that wasn't from nature. Carol facilitated an amazing vacation with her attention to detail. Pure medicine for the soul at Sunset House!"

  • Amazing Cottage

    "This was our first trip to Long Island and Baywatch Cottage, within three days of our our eight day vacation we had already rebooked. The property is amazing, with views that can't be beat. Waking up each morning looking out at Thompson Bay was the best way to start the day full of adventures. The location is perfect with amenities close by, food places to dine at and views to behold. Long Island itself was an outstanding experience. From dolphins swimming in the moon's glow, to friendly waves as we drove, to beaches without people, to beautiful shells collected, to swimming in shrimp grottos hidden behind a church, this made for one of our most memorable vacations. We can't wait for our return!"
