Recent Long Island reviews

  • 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!"

  • 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.""

  • Great beach for kids!

    "What a great place! A real treat after a not so great rental in Exuma. Much appreciated the clean and comfortable beds. Very clean and bright in the house, but the best thing was being right on the beach. The wind blew during our entire vacation, so it was great to be on the Caribbean side. We were able to go in the ocean daily even when the Atlantic side was extremely rough. Close enough for a short drive to Dean's blue hole – which was awesome...The cottage had all the basic cooking utensils, a few puzzles, and plenty of books for adults – but if you have kids, definitely bring a few games and/or books for entertainment. The beach is amazing during the day, but the bugs will come out at about 4 o'clock, and then you will need things to do inside – or a whole lot of bug spray! The owners were great folks to work with, and the caretaker Nancy was great and very helpful as well. Thank you for everything!"

  • The perfect place to Dream

    "It’s Monday morning and I’m “Bahama Dreamin”. We just returned from two weeks on Long Island and an amazing piece of paradise at Bahama Dreamin. This was our third trip to Long Island with a group of eleven. Bahama Dreamin provided us the ideal accommodations for our group. We rented two of the two bedroom units and one of the one bedroom units which gave everyone the perfect balance between family time and some private space. Bahama Dreamin is located at the center of the island which is great. It is close to Deadman’s Cay airport which was really appreciated when our children’s flights home were delayed due to weather. Robin kept us informed of flight updates and provided assistance in an alternative option to Nassau. Bahama Dreamin is on a beautiful beach on the Atlantic side of the ocean. We snorkeled and speared a huge lobster the first night we arrived. Each day we went to another beach on Long Island. The cars that are included are a huge bonus when renting from Bahama Dreamin. The jeep and large SUV’s allowed our large group to explore the entire island from North to South. The units are beautifully decorated, clean and as comfortable as home. We cooked meals most nights for eleven in one of the units and had everything we needed. The large screened porches overlooking the ocean provided the perfect spot every morning for coffee and a spectacular sunrise and then an evening cocktail hour listening to the waves. Our group included four grandparents, grown children and our three year old grandson and four month old granddaughter. Robin arranged for Cena, her caretaker to babysit everyday which was amazing. Bahama Dreamin provides an excellent layout for everyone from seniors to children and I would recommend it for all ages and group sizes. We have been traveling to the Bahamas for over 20 years and have visited many different islands. Long Island is our favorite. It has the most beautiful, isolated beaches we have seen. Robin and Cena helped arrange fishing trips and introduced us to many amazing people. Cameron Knowles provided the experience of a lifetime by sharing his lobster adventures with my husband. Robin and Mike have created the ultimate setting for others to experience the beauty and restfulness of Long Island. We are already looking at the calendar to plan our next trip. Until then, we will be “Bahama Dreamin"."
