"Our family of five have just returned from a bliss-filled week on Long Island, Bahamas. We have visited our favorite island destination a dozen times or so over the past fifteen years and have rented a number of different accommodations in various locations. All have had their pluses and a few minuses, but Flip-Flopping' ticked all the boxes. Its unique layout fit all our needs. With its three separate units connected by bridges, everyone had their own personal space. The main house has two futons for additional sleeping; so it is ideal for three couples or a family of six to eight. The kitchen is more than functional, and the porches perfect for relaxing with a panoramic view of the secluded "bush" setting. There is a toilet and lavatory in each unit. One unit has an indoor shower, another has a unique cantilevered outdoor shower off the bathroom, and there is a large outdoor shower downstairs. Taking a warm winter night shower under the myriad of stars above is a surreal experience. There is a mid-level patio with four lounge chairs , perfect for sunbathing. All areas of the accommodation were well-cleaned, and the decor was tropically beautiful (and I do mean beautiful ... kudos to the decorator!) Cheryl is a most friendly and helpful manager in every step of the rental process.
The home is not beach front. There is a partial ocean view from the top floor porch. It is, however, only an easy five minute walk to a white powder beach with Long Island's trade mark aquamarine hued waters. You will need to rent a car as the nearest grocery store is a fifteen minute drive south. Chez Pierre is the nearest restaurant which is a similar drive away. Besides, you will want to venture out and about to find your own favorite beach on the island and visit the island's other attractions. We would whole-heartedly recommend Flip-Flopping"!"
