Guestbook comments from the owner
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.

Native Long Islanders who love the island life..........

Ryan Carroll purchased this villa in 2002

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.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
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.

Lovely house - just beware the sand flies

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve and..yes the sand flies do come out when the winds fall back, which happens from time to time....on most occasions however, they never appear to the delight of all who come back to visit us year after year...

A Caribbean Gem!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Ryan's Oceanview

Ryan's Oceanview
  • 5 of 5
We spent a week on Long Island and had the pleasure of staying at Ryan's Ocean View in Miley. The house is situated on top of a hill which allows fantastic views from both the front and back of the house. The views are even more beautiful than the pictures show!! Patrice made sure we had some basics in the house when we arrived since it was Sunday and the grocery stores are closed. The house is very clean and well equipped. The upstairs has a large master suite which was quite spacious. One of my favorite things was to enjoy a glass of wine with my husband while in the outdoor hot tub on the back porch overlooking the ocean. So relaxing!! The house is only about 20 minutes from one the most beautiful beaches on the island in Gordon. Don't miss out on seeing Dean's Blue Hole and stopping at the end of the road to Compose Rose where there are pools formed by the rocks in the ocean. We have traveled a lot to many of the islands in the Bahamas...the people of Long Island are some of the most friendliest people I have ever met and I love that the island isn't spoiled by too much commercialism...it truly has an island feel. Thanks Patrice for sharing your slice of Paradise with us...we couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. We hope to return soon!

Happy Easter on Long Island

  • 4 of 5
Thank you a lot for one of our best Easter holidays. Our family stayed 2 weeks with 2 kids of 10 years at this silent and beautiful beach place. As we arrived Ingrid picked us up with the girl from the car rental at the airport and guided us to the house - passing a supermarket. The house is well equiped with very nice interior - execpt a dishwasher wich is missing. As we arrived we had no outside table - but Ingrid came back within one hour with a helpful new garden table. We had a lot of outdoor dinners with a barbecue - caught at the beach! We took the table around the house terraces and we found every day a place without wind. Ingrid gave us some information what is necessary to see at this caribean island like: Deans blue hole for snorkling, the rock-pools at compass rose or the wonderful beach at Galloway or Gordons at the caribean side (take the left road with the blue barrel at the corner on the way to Clarence Town - look for the writing galloway). During our stay we were mostly alone at the awsome beaches. From the house you have to walk only 1 minute to the beach - the best place for swimming during all weather conditions is the beach on the right side in 10 Minutes walking distance with shallow turquise water. Every late afternoon we did bottom fishing directly in front of our house (start 2 hours before sunset, best with coming flood, cast out on the sandy parts close to the rocks, put on a 100-150 grams weight and a 1/0 hook with half a squid - which you can get frozen in all supermarkets - and wait 10 Minutes) We caught a lot of Snapper, Jackfish and Triggerfish for the barbecue. If you like to go bonefishing - ask Ingrid for a trip with Elvis - he is the best guide - you will catch your bone. Going for Deep Sea fishing was quite too expensive (600 for a simple boat up to 1200 US professional boat for a one Day charter). The best restaurant in closer distance ist Rowdys bar and grill - very good food, but not really cosy or nice. If you look for a caribean beach bar, waterfront location - grill or someting like that - it will be hard to find for you on long island. If you look for entertainment and show - we can remommend you to go to to the Marina in late afternoon to see the yacht-guys feeding the 8 feet lemon sharks close to their boat - ther is no other entertainment.If you look for a silent nature experience with the ocean next to you Ryans Ocean View is the perfect place to go. We would recommend this house for you. Family Lehmbecker

Third Time and Still Loving It!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at Ryan's Oceanview twice in the past and decided to plan a trip with my sister and her two teenagers (14 & 18) to visit once again. I cannot begin to empasize how pleasant it is to work with Patrice and Bill; they are extremely accommodating to our every need. They offered and provided a Wii for the kids (they were too distracted to use it) and kept contact with us prior to and during the trip to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. Ingrid greeted us at the airport and was kind enough to shop for provisions for us since it was Sunday and the markets were closed. The fridge was stocked with everything we had asked for. Ingrid also checked in on us and procurred 3 lobster tails for us to enjoy as well. Ryan's Oceanview is one of the most beautiful and well-kept rental homes we have ever stayed in; no detail has been spared and the home comes with every ammenity you could need while being away from home. We tend to cook our dinners at home rather than go out every night and the kitchen is very well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable and the AC blows cool when you need it.

We enjoyed dinner at Rowdy Boys and the small waterfront restaurant at Flying Fish Marina (very inexpensive and good food). We, of course, had to make a trek to Max's Conch Bar for the delicious conch salad. Everything we've ever tried on their menu is very good!

We soaked up some sun at the beaches at Galloway, Lowe's Beach and Lochabar. We even swam with 2 eagle rays at Lochabar and collected so many sand dollars I've lost count! The color of the water at these beaches is indescribable and committed to my memory to visit mentally on cloudy days.

My sister, who is often hard to please, raved about the home and said she'd love to come back again. My husband and I will definitely be back again in the (hopefully near) future! Thank you Patrice, Bill, Ryan and Ingrid for another wonderful vacation!
