About Long Island, Bahamas: 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.

I'm a semi-retired architectural / interior designer / builder from the Northeast now enjoying my new lifestyle in the Bahamas. Taking care of my beachfront rentals and guests is my new job (though it doesn't feel like a job!) and introducing many to Long Island for the first time. I enjoy this slice of heaven with my 2 Jack Russells - Sketch & Nikko
Carol - Whymms Villas purchased this villa in 2005
I chose Long Island first for this beautiful beachfront parcel I was able to purchase. I wanted to design a villa that was one's own private resort! Second was for the natural beauty of Long Island and the relaxed pace one finds here - a perfect backdrop for getting away from it all - and finally the people here - the friendly nature of Long Islanders is such a welcome feel and the the vibe on Long Island is second to none.
What's unique about 'On-A-Whymm'? EVERYTHING - ! If you are looking for all the conveniences of home (and then some) mixed with island style set on an idyllic beach - then come see us. You'll see why we think 'On-A-Whymm' is very special.
Property exactly as shown. Very well designed, top quality, comfortable, clean home and grounds. Carol is very organized and thought of everything! She gave us travel tips, stocked the kitchen with items we requested, and had us picked up at the airport. She made sure that our arrival was so easy and was readily available if we needed anything during our stay. She arranged for our rental car, so we explored the island: Dean's Blue Hole, Clarence Town, and we went on a very fun deep sea fishing trip with Captain Delbert in the North. Urshula (a sweetheart!) cooked for us one night.
4 Stars only because the beach is not exactly what we would have wanted in terms of having good snorkeling and fishing- and nobody claimed there was, so I would never say that the property was misrepresented. However, since boat use is included with this property and we enjoyed taking the boat to the nearby rocky island and snorkeling there a bit. We went to the left of the cove and encountered a school of Barraduca. There are gorgeous and very tiny shells to find on the beach.
If you want to stay in luxury, cook some meals for yourself, have all of the comforts of home (tv, dvd player, stereo with several zones inside and out, pool, top of the line kitchen and bedding) and be right on the beach, this is a great choice.
This home is absolutely perfect. Carol did a superb job designing and equipping the house. We couldn't think of anything that she could add to the home. Very well equipped.
On short notice I informed her that we would be getting married at this house. The house was perfect for the event. We had very little planned so for our wedding dinner she put us in contact with Ursula who came in and cooked 6 of us dinner from scratch. It far exceeded our expectations and was very affordable. Do not miss her Coconut Tart.
If you are a cook the kitchen is a dream to work in and all the appliances are top of the line. There is also a grill on the back patio. I cooked all our breakfasts and lunches and it was fun.
The view in the backyard was beautiful. Go kayaking or walk on the beach. If you get too take a quick dip in the pool or cool off with on outdoor shower as there is one on the beach and one on each side of the house.
I can't say enough good things about On A Whymm. If you are considering a stay here just do it and you won't have any regrets.
Thank you so much Carol.
My family and I returned from a week at on-a-whymm. This is a beautiful, well designed home. Every detail is covered! The furnishings are beautiful, plush bedding, soft towels, well designed kitchen! Carol was available for questions before & during our trip- but her resource guide has it all, including names of owners & stops to make along the way. The view and peaceful environment of this home was exactly what my family needed. Everyday we had a fun adventure!! From the simple trip out the back door for shell hunting, playing in the sand, enjoying the amazing waters- to checking out the untouched beauty of this island! We enjoyed a fishing adventure with freshly caught lobster & conch for lunch; gourmet dinners prepared in the kitchen while we enjoyed the outdoors- memories my family will cherish forever. We highly recommend on-a-whymm!!
On-A-Whymm was exactly as described, and the location, and layout were perfect for a relaxing vacation. The property was clean and well maintained and we were greeted with a smile. No detail was overlooked in designing and decorating this home. I especially enjoyed the view from the back porch across the pool with the beautiful blue Caribbean waters as a backdrop. Be sure to check out the local attractions: Cape Santa Maria, Columbus Point, Deans Blue Hole, and stop by the Outer Edge Grill at the Flying Fish Marina. I would highly recommend this property.
My family and I recently stayed 2 weeks at 'on-a-Whymm' and it exceeded expectations in every way. The house/yard/pool/beach were absolutely immaculate and everything was very well maintained. Carol's attention to detail is quite impressive to say the least. Our kids loved the calm, warm waters out front and playing in the pool. The first week we toured all over the beautiful island and enjoyed all the sites and always had good meals at any of the restaurants we tried (Our favorite was lunch and the moonshine bar at Stella Maris so the kids could snorkel and swim at the rock pool while we relaxed at the bar and enjoyed the amazing views). The second week of our vacation we just found the 'on-a-whymm' villa too nice to leave and we mainly just stayed close to home. The private chef meals also come highly recommended.
We used the boat for snorkeling excursions and did lots of fishing. The snorkeling off of the small islands in the bay was fantastic (easily accessible with the boat) and the fishing was great. We caught lots of snapper for the odd meal and the barracuda provided some additional entertainment on light tackle. My son who is 13 also caught a bonefish right out front on the villa on his fly rod. We also seen dolphins one day from the boat as well.
I can't say enough about Long Island - the local people were very friendly and would go out of there way to help. Carol provides recommendations for car rentals, tour guides, groceries, restaurants, beaches, etc. and everything we did based on those recommendations seemed to always exceed our expectations. With my only previous Caribbean experience being from a cruise ship and being hounded at ever port like vultures I can now truly see what the draw to this area is for people wanting a vacation of a lifetime.
I would return with my family and would recommend this rental property to anyone without hesitation.
There are really just two words to describe the house and the experience at On-A-Whymm. Just perfect. We travel several times a year all over the world. Although we always try to find the more "out of the way" spots, we still like to be spoiled and have stayed at many of the most luxurious resorts in the world. Staying at On-A-Whymm was like having your own little luxury resort and your home all wrapped up in one. One of our favorite spots is the St. Regis in Punta MIta and as strange as it sounds, we felt like we had our own private St. Regis. The only difference was my husband was the bartender. The feeling I had the first morning waking up and looking out the sliders at the beautiful flowers, the pool and the ocean is indescribable.
The house had every imaginable convenience. It just felt like home. The house was missing nothing. The kitchen was fabulous and we had a wonderful local chef cook for us a night. The kids are still talking about her coconut cake.
Carol was so helpful getting us up to speed on everything before we arrived, so we could just relax and enjoy when we got there.
If you enjoy remote, out of the way spots, you cannot go wrong with On-A-Whymm. With all the places we have travelled it is our new favorite and we hope to be back very soon!
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, 'On-A-Whymm' 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.
