Long Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms - Sleeps up to 10

This is a unique home comprised of 4 separate buildings - the way homes in the Bahamas were years ago. The separate living spaces give great privacy to the bedrooms so every member of the family has a place to retreat! Perfect for 3-4 couples as well as all bedrooms can be made as King with pvt. bath.

The main building is the gathering hub of the property – great room, dining room and kitchen as well as a laundry room / pantry and a powder room. Exit the Lodge onto a spacious deck which connects the other two cottages – the Master Cottage to your right and then the guest cottage to your left. All buildings have covered porches and comfortable furnishings for lounging or entertaining. There is an additional studio cottage off garage which can accomodate 4 guests That you can add to the base rental.

Center stage to all of this is the idyliic beach just a step off your private boardwalk - beautiful swimming and snorkeling and a great place to walk along the beach and collect shells or go bonefishing or kayaking.

About Long Island: 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. In his ship’s log, an entry mentions taking on fresh water, trading with the natives, and notes that this was the most beautiful island he had ever seen. 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.

About Us: Whymms Villas is committed to offering only luxury villa rentals to make your vacation one to remember. Our concierge services start when you book your villa - to help with travel arrangements - provisioning your villa in advance of your arrival - airport pick-up - arranging for a rental car - mid week maid service (or more often for a fee) - scheduling massages, bonefish guides, snorkeling or diving excursions, deep sea fishing, restaurant reservations (or a local chef to come to your villa and prepare a Bahamian dinner!) whatever you need to make your trip a truly relaxing, stress free vacation.

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a DELIGHTFUL week at the Whymm Villas on Long Island, Bahamas.

Our group resided in both Sunset House and On-a Whymm. The setting smack on a calm,quiet, turquoise bay, was the perfect 'wake up'..great for afternoon sun, breath taking sunsets and under a virgin canopy of stars at night. The water was inviting every time of the day.

Owner, Carol Condon has created an oasis of island charm w/ these two attractive homes appointed w/ island collections. Her architecture and design background are complemented by her family's love of gardening and inn keeping.

Both houses are impeccably maintained. From the most comfortable beds, to the super well-stocked kitchens to the numerous conversational seating areas inside and out, we found both to be the perfect respite from our active days of exploring all the natural treasures of Long Island's beaches and waters and sports.

What a spot!

Owner's Response: Suasn - and all of your very fun gang...... it was such a pleasure meeting all of you. The week went by way too fast so you simply need to return very soon. So glad you were happy with the villas and loved Long Island - it is indeed a special place! My Best - Carol

Once Long Island

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers to this property. I guess we can't get enough of the beach, sun, ocean and unprecedented privacy. There were improvements made since our last stay- the most impressive being a mosquito misting system. This has made a difference with both the no-see-ums and mosquitos. Also- brand new outdoor furniture graced the terrace; this was especially nice as we eat every meal outside.

One of our favorite amenities is the optional boat rental. We took the boat out daily and this time we were rewarded with a visit by a family of dolphins. We caught them on video!

We also recorded a manatee that had come to shore while we were lunching at Long Island Breezes Resort (which serves up a very nice Philly cheese steak sandwich)- it is located a short drive south of the property.

Storms can reek havoc on a shore line and we were concerned hurricane Sandy might have damaged the beach. Our worries were unfounded; there was no damage here. We enjoyed miles of sandy beach and warm, calm waters just as on our previous visits.

We've already booked next year's winter get away.

Owner's Response: Hey Sandy and Michael - Always happy to see your names in our reservation book year after year - I think that frequent guest program we have with you is paying off! Thanks again for the kudos and making "Sunset House" your home away from home! Cheers - Carol

Find of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned travelers and experienced our first vacation on Long Island, Bahamas when we rented Sunset House in January of 2011- it was such a tremendous experience we’ve taken three vacation there in the last 18 months and plan to do so at least every January.

We were a bit skeptical of a rental property- not knowing if the home would be as nice as portrayed on the website. The house, junior and master suites and guest cottage were perfect and spotless; equipped with every appliance including a washer and dryer. We were at ease that we had made the right decision with our first walk through.

The accommodations at Sunset House were nothing short of exceptional. Sending a "provisions list" before our arrival saw to it that the kitchen and bar were filled with our favorite spirits, mixers, foods and staples; this service was available at no additional cost.

Long Island is definitely not for those looking for the exuberant, body packed night club, casino on every corner scene. You can’t miss this place if you’re seeking your own little slice of paradise including unprecedented privacy.

Renting Sunset House filled all of our needs. Our first week was as a family of five- two adults, three teenagers. Then five friends came for a visit the second and third weeks utilizing the cottage. The fourth week was a second honeymoon. Many different needs- all of them met!

Car rental is a must. A few casual, fun and friendly bar & grills dot the coast but are not within walking distance. Renting a van was effortless with the car waiting for us at the house when we arrived. The optional boat rental was great for fishing and snorkeling not to mention pulling the kids on the inner tube or banana boat.

I absolutely loved the no additional charge weekly cleaning service that includes laundering linens. A local caterer is available. We hired her for several of our evening meals. She takes your order, shops, prepares, serves the meal and cleans up afterwards!

Carol, the hostess of the estate, is kind, friendly, resourceful, and respectful of your privacy. She is there at the drop of a hat and filled with suggestions when needed. She intuits the needs of every guest and for our second visit had a banana boat and inner tube available (as well as the two kayaks) to keep our three, never happy unless they’re moving, teenagers content.

Wish we would have found this place years ago!

The Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here with family. There were 6 of us ages 43-73 and the villa was just perfect. It was clean and beautifully situated on the beach. How wonderful to just walk out the door to the beach! Carol was so helpful and took wonderful care of us....arranging to have the villa stocked with groceries upon our arrival, a super dinner prepared by Ursula, a native chef, and rental cars. Great bonefishing and diving with Delbert at Cape Santa Maria and the guys at Stella Maris. We loved our morning visits with Nikko. It was hard to leave at the end of our week which went much too quickly and we hope to be able to return again soon..Barby Candler

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful on the beach house! This house is beautifully built with all the amenities you could ask for including high end appliances and fully furnished.

Carol does a wonderful job providing all the information you need to enjoy your stay and knows everyone on the island. Plenty of dining choices all over.

Wake up in the morning and simply take your boardwalk right to the beach!

This house is even more beautiful than the photos could show.

Highly recommended from someone who's been around the Carribean.

Luxory Compound Style Villa

  • 5 of 5

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Beautiful private home that has all accommodations including private sleep quarters and bathrooms for 4 couples, full kitchen, 2 washer/dryers,outdoor showers, outdoor grill and much more. I would strongly recommend this vacation getaway as a romantic destination for 1 or more coulpes, older and younger people with or without children and best of all...GIRLS TRIP. There is a lot of sight seeing and adventures as well as just simply hanging out on the beach, kayaking, checking out the local bars and meeting the unique local people. I will personally make this a vacation must at least once a year and would highly receommend to all friends and families.

Long Island is located 165 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas. Daily flights are available. Flight time is approximately 45 minutes. On Long Island there are two very different coasts, 'Sunset House' is located on the one with soft white beaches and the other with rocky headlands that descend suddenly into the ocean. The terrain varies from sloping hills in the north to low hillsides, with numerous limestone caves, fading into flatlands in the south. Long Island stretches over 75 miles, with many small settlements along Queen’s Highway. The scenery from the highway changes from old buildings surrounded by stone walls, to beautiful beaches with calm blue water. One can spend the day on a remote beach with complete privacy, or tour the island and shop for pottery, woven goods, or fresh fruit. Go to lunch at an authentic island conch bar serving fresh fish, conch, and lobster. Take the time to meet the locals, becoming one with the island.
