This gives a brilliant panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the bone fishing flats on the other - simply breathtaking! Wooden French doors on all decks makes an easy flow from indoor to outdoors. From the wrap around sun decks, sit in the hot tub and watch sail boats and yachts go by. At night, the galaxy is your theatre! Walk down the pathway to a beautiful, secluded, sandy beach - great for sun bathing or jogging.

Ryan Carroll purchased this villa in 2003
Ryan's Ocean View is uniquely situated. It's a hide-away that is close to the world famous Dean's Blue Hole, restaurants and marina. The property itself is isolated, yet you are never alone.... You can watch boats sail by while relaxing on the sun deck or soaking in the hot tub.
There is always a cool & refreshing breeze blowing. The house is situated on the Atlantic ocean side of the island making it a pleasure to be out of doors every day.
We gladly join the line of enthusiastic reviews about your beautiful home.. After a lovely Christmas day with our children who live in New York, we did not need much convincing to join them on a week's holiday to The Bahamas. For all of us, it was the first time, but hopefully not the last.
There was absolutely nothing which we did not thoroughly enjoyed... Staying in your tasteful and exceptionable home. The whole island, beaches and sea right at your door step. The friendliness of our host, Ingrid as well as her daughter, the people of Long Island and last but not least the perfect climate. What a shame we missed meeting you in person Ryan. But maybe there will be another chance if you should ever travel to Germany? Thank you so much.
The house and Long Island are perfect. They both provided the relaxed, laid-back vibe we were looking for on this vacation. The house was very clean and had wonderful linens and amenities (washer/dryer, beach chairs, cooler and bottled water). The Wi-Fi worked great. It has a great location in being close to great beaches/restaurants yet secluded at the same time. We will definitely go back!
Long Island is a place to explore. Be ready to take the 'road less travelled' at times to find some of the amazing best kept secret beaches. Patrice, Ryan and Ingrid are fabulous hosts that will assist you in any way guiding you towards any particular experience or service you require. Eat at Outer Edge Marina for great food and amazing service and make a visit up to the Cape Santa Maria Resort for an afternoon, beautiful place. Long Island is a place we will definitely revisit.
We came to Ryan's ocean view with our 7 yr old daughter . As we arrived in front of house, we were stunned by the beauty of the home, the spectacular ocean view and ocean breeze. It is way more beautiful than the pictures on the website. Upon entering the home , our first impression was the interior design . So tastefull ! The bedding was total luxury and comfortable. We had everything we needed and more . Even board games for our little one, so many books to read too. A car rental is a must. We went around the island and discovered our 2 favorite beaches: Gordon's 30 min south of the house, and Cape Santa Maria, 1 1/2 hour drive up North , but so worthed than we went twice during our stay. Ingrid...you are the best ! Thankyou for always being there for our tiniest little needs ! Thankyou Ryan, Patrice for your kindness and making our stay a great one ! We recommend Ryan's Ocean View to everyone that is looking for a piece of paradise, some quiet time with the beauty of this beautiful island.
Our trip to Long Island was the best vacation my family has ever taken. And staying at Ryan's Ocean View was the best decision we could have made. The home is absolutely gorgeous and impeccably clean. Every morning we packed the cooler at the house and went exploring. We spent the evenings on the deck reading and watching boats go by in the distance. In the beginning I was concerned about staying on the less calm Atlantic side considering we have a young son. But the views, the ocean breeze, the sound of the waves, the lushness of the property surrounding the house and the colors of water made Ryan's Ocean Breeze perfect for us.
Favorite beaches-Gordon's and Ford's beach. The beach at the old salt mine in Hard Bargain was difficult to get to, but absolutely worth it.
Restaurants-We loved the food and the people at Winter Haven Inn-amazing conch and the best wings we've ever had. The atmosphere across the street at Outer Edge was nice, but the food was just ok and the service was painfully slow. Max's Conch Bar was our son's favorite. It was always lively and the food was great.
Thank you for opening up your home to us and thank you for all of your kindness along the way. We can't wait to get back to Long Island and Ryan's Ocean View.
A lovely house with plenty of space - inside and out. The kitchen is fine - hob and microwave plus BBQ outside, but no oven or grill. You'll definitely need a car as the house is pleasantly remote and quiet. You're not completely on your own though as there are a few houses around 300 or 400 yards away and down by the beach. Nearest restaurant is in Clarence Town (maybe 10 minutes by car) and the nearest reasonable food store and wine shop are about 20 minutes away in Hamiltons and Pettys. The beach is a few steps away and the sands are constantly changing. We loved Gordons Beach which is around 20 minutes by car down the Queens Highway.
The only drawback we discovered was the sand flies!! These little critters bite and they itch like hell for ages!! Three out of four people staying at the house were "attacked".....no idea why the fourth person was left alone! We found that around 5.00/5.30pm you had to cover up the arms and legs - spraying just didn't seem to stop them. Fine when you've worked that out!! You find them around a lot of the Caribbean but these are particularly determined little beasts.
Everyone is very friendly on the island and we thoroughly enjoyed our three weeks there. Totally relaxing.
Ryan's Ocean View is a well-maintained and beautifully decorated home with much attention to detail. It is the ideal getaway for peace and quiet with plenty of privacy. Internet access was good; lots of books with current titles; brilliant night skies great for stargazing; a cozy hottub; a well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals with freshly caught fish from the local docks; nearby beach for walking long distances and beachcombing. All you need are great companions!
While away from the home, we drove from one end of the island to the other and enjoyed incomparable bonefishing, snorkeling at Dean's Blue Hole where we saw schools of colorful fish, eating superb conch salad at Max's Conch Bar where we celebrated the birthday of one of our friends, great views from Rowdy Boys restaurant, white sands of gorgeous beaches including Morton's, and visiting with very friendly local residents. I only wish we could have stayed longer, and yes, I highly recommend Ryan's Oceanview. You just can't get any better!
