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.

About Whymms Villas: About Whymms Villas: 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.

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Russell and Kim,

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!
Owner's Response: Ann-Marie, Jim and Family - really so pleased to hear that all was "JUST PERFECT" - my only regret was that I was traveling and unabe to meet you personally! I so hope you return and we can enjoy a drink on the beach together. Stay in touch! My Best - Carol

The ultimate beach vacation experience!

We stayed at On-A-Whymm for 2 weeks in July of 2012. After a year that posed many challenges for our family, including a total loss house fire, we were in dire need of a special and relaxing vacation for us to reconnect. Although Carol does not typically welcome young children, after several lovely email exchanges, she felt comfortable opening her home to my husband, myself, our daughter (then age 7) and our son (then age 9). I can honestly say, this was THE BEST family vacation we ever had and will forever be the standard to top. Everything was easy and worry-free from the my first contact with Carol; from the initial planning stages, to making sure the house was well stocked upon arrival, to ensuring we were well aquainted with the island sights and amentities, she made sure every possible detail was covered. This same attention to detail is seen throughout the house, garden, pool and beach area; it is relaxed luxury epitomized. The thing we loved about Long Island is the laid back pace and lack of glitsy tourism; the island has almost a rustic, back in time feel, but On-A-Whymm has every modern amenity you could desire. The vacation was the perfect balance of seclusion and luxury.
As others have noted, if you are looking for a trip with active nightlife, restaurants and shopping, I would be inclined to steer you elsewhere. But, if you are looking for the ultimate, well appointed, enjoy natural island beauty vacation, then this is THE trip to take. We spent hours relaxing on the beach right outside the home, but also explored the island; including the Columbus monument, Santa Maria beach, the Long Island Museum, 2 trips to Dean's Blue Hole and I think every little small beach we could find on the island. Many are totally off the map and we were often the only people there! Where else can you experience that! Amazing! And don't forget to stop for conch salad at Max's after a long day of beach combing. A must! The shell hunting in general was the best I have ever encountered; we came home with a collection second to none! We had Ursula cook an amazing dinner for us one evening; an experience in Bahamian culture and food and a glimpse of gastro-heaven. I would highly recommend! We also scheduled a fishing/lobster spearing/conch trip with her husband, Ken, which was incredible! We came back with more fresh fish, conch and lobster than we could eat! If you decide to visit On-A-Whymm, your only regret will be that you have to leave. Thanks, Carol!

Vacation in a perfect paradise!

Paradise with all luxurious amenities! We stayed at the On-A-Whymm for two weeks during the Christmas time 2011 and we loved every moment of it, except the return to home… On-A-Whymm offered us everything and much more we had hoped for. The house is magnificent! It has carefully planned floor plan with beautiful décor and upscale amenities. Bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and well ironed linens, bathrooms are beautiful with lovely outdoor showers, kitchen is great and stocked with all utensils you can think of, dining and living room offers you a great space for entertaining. Even though, the house is so amazing we cannot forget the landscaping and the pool area with the fabulous view to the sea. It was delightful to wake up every morning and have breakfast on the porch while watching the palm trees, white beach and turquoise water in front of you - you just knew you had another great and relaxing day in paradise ahead of you. Quite a few evenings we finished watching the beautiful sunset while enjoying the freshly caught Snappers, which my husband, son and father in law just brought home after taking the boat out to the sea.

The boat, which belongs to the house, offered us some exciting outings. The fishing was #1, but we also got lucky to see two playful dolphins give us a private show. And not to forget the amount of big and small starfishes and an octopus we saw.

The location of the house is great in the mid island. We explored the north and the south. The most memorable excursions we made include the fascinating Dean’s Blue Hole and the Columbus Monument with its surrounding white beaches. Both places left unforgettable memories!

A beautiful house doesn’t happen on it’s own! We had the great pleasure to meet the owner, Carol and her two lovely boys, Nikko & Sketch. Carol is an amazing person who made everything possible during our two weeks in her paradise. She always knew which strings to pull to solve our questions.

Thank you Carol, Nikko and Sketch for a great vacation in the beautiful paradise!!!! We will be back, hopefully sooner than later!

Take care,
Suvi & co

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.

Other Activities: World Class Bone Fishing and Professional Guides Available
