5 Star Review for Whymmsical Wish Cottage
We had a wonderful 1 week stay at Whymmsical Wish Cottage from 1/5-1/12/2013. The cottage was just as described including the lovely setting, clean and well maintained. It was perfect for 2 couples as well as 1 couple. Even before we arrived George had responded to every question we asked including detailed directions to the cottage from the airport. George greeted us when we arrived, showed us around the property and suggested where we could find a delicious Bahamian dinner.
George’s customer service could not have been better. He visited every day to see if we needed anything. He guided us to people for fishing and snorkeling trips, provided sight seeing suggestions and directions, and generally made sure we were enjoying ourselves. As we freeze in PA, we can smile thinking about the many gorgeous beaches we walked, the Bahamian food we enjoyed, the Rake & Scrape music we danced to and the gorgeous sunsets including a green flash we watched.
Many thanks, George, for a warm and special vacation. We can eagerly recommend your cottage to friends and family. And we hope to return.
My wife and I spent a week in late Februray at this very comfortable beach cottage. Couldn't have been a better week of weather and beach. The owner, George, helped us with our travel plans and checked on us frequently at the cottage to offer assistance with directions, local stores, etc.
We rented a car and traveled to the fantastic beach in the north, Santa Maria, to the beatiful Gordon Beach in the south as well as many beaches in between. White sugar sands and turquoise water. At most we would see a couple of others on the beach, but often had the entire beach to ourselves. Must see: Blue Hole. Note: Side roads are quite rough. On a return vist we would rent an SUV or high clearance vehicle.
This was our second trip to Long Island - last time we stayed in the south. We love it because it is so quiet, simple and untouched - every day we take our kids to a new, different and completely deserted beach! Our expectations were therefore high for this trip but the Whyms location in the middle of the island on the Caribbean/leeward side and George and Cindy's welcome and comfortable cottage easily exceeded those expectations. The cottage is in site of and a short walk from the beach and is well equipped and comfortable. George's discrete but always available hosting from his nearby home really supplemented our stay - he kindly did a grocery shop in advance of our arrival, he recommended car hire and restaurants, he gave us daily weather and beach suggestions, he sorted out our flight changes on departure and he even conjured up candles for my wife's birthday cake! Thank you George and Cindy for a wonderful stay - we all loved it, Jamie, Sarah, Tessa (6) and Charlie (4). We will be returning for sure.
Our stay at Whymsical Wish was exactly what we needed. The location of the cabins are ideal for exploring the whole island being that they were in a central location. George, the owner, was the perfect host. Giving us all the information we needed but not smothering us. He made our stay amazing. We had an incredible time exploring all the island had to offer. From unbelievably gorgeous beaches, to amazing snorkeling locations and delicious fresh seafood long island had it all. We had the beaches to ourselves, only Dean's Blue Hole was "busy" with up to five other people at a time. Which is understandable because the view was incredible. It is definitely a must see!! We went snorkeling around and over the blue hole and saw tons of amazing fish and shells. Our overall stay on the island was incredible.
When landing in Nassau you cannot help but notice that you are in a place just as crowded and busy as the place you may have just came from, only warmer. After landing on Long Island and stepping off the plane, you start to realize that you are in the “Real Bahamas”!
My Fiancée Jessica and I stayed at Whymsical Wish for 8 days this February and we cannot begin to say enough great things about not only Wymsical Wish, George and Cindy, but of Long Island too!!! We have traveled all over the Caribbean and Long Island and our stay at Whymsical Wish is our favorite yet! We have always said that we will never visit the same place twice but I think this is a place that we will have to visit again! It is UNIQUE!
George and Cindy are AMAZING! They went well out of their way to ensure we had absolutely EVERYTING we needed and to answer all of our questions about what to see, where to go and how to get there! We landed on the Island on a Sunday when grocery stores are closed. George, who had been in constant contact prior to our arrival, had stocked our kitchen with everything we had requested! WOOHOO!! He was also gracious enough to let us use his Kayaks, which allowed us to explore the gorgeous bay in front of the cottage. The cottage is beautiful and had everything we could have asked for! The beach in front of the cottage is stunning and the water is the stuff we here in New England DREAM about in winter! You can also snorkel right from the beach! We enjoyed spectacular Sunsets every night while sipping tropical drinks and the stars at night were AMAZING!
I could go on forever about Whymsical Wish, Long Island, and the BEST HOSTS you will ever have!! If you are like us, you like to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and go to a place that truly slows you down, warms you up and rejuvenates your soul! Whymsical Wish and Long Island IS that place!
Thank you SOO Much George and Cindy!!!!
We where supposed to stay some place else, but she cancelled when we arrived. The island was busy, but we were incredibly lucky that George had space available. The accommodations are simple and ample, and its just the right lay out for a family vacation. There are two bedrooms and baths and a large common area so people can be together and also have some space. There was great cross breeze and fans so we never needed to turn on the a/c. But the real plus here is George. He was incredibly generous with his time and things. We used his kayak (he carried it in and out of the water) and borrowed a mask when we lost one of ours. He got us fresh coconuts (and opened them) as well as lobster tails. I can't think of anything we could have asked him for that he would not have provided. He is very knowledge about the island and where to go (which is really helpful as there is not that much published info and things are not marked all that well.) As we were leaving he got an amazing shell for our 6 year old that made the trip even more special for her. If you want rest and relaxation, plus all the help you could want, this is the place to stay.
In December 2012 we spent the best time ever on the wonderful isle of long island. Not enough that the isle is a dream by itself, we also had the best hosts you can have! After arriving to Deadmans Cay, a 30 min. drive and just a short search we found our home for the next 13 nights and were absolutely amazed!
We stayed in the ocean cottage and it is just the perfect place to stay! You got everything you need with all the amneties and it is built and maintained just perfectely!!!
George gave us a warm welcome, showed us the house, he has already stuffed the fridge for us, and told us what to do where and when while having a nice and cold bahamian beer on the perfectely screened in porch with a great view over the property and the ocean behind.
He really knows the spots on the island you need to see and this is worth a thousand times more than any printed travel guide...
He also always knows the right people for everything you need or want to do and he always took real good care of us!
Thanks again, George and Mari!
It was a pleasure to meet you and we can't wait to comeback!
Located on a beautiful bay ringed by a 2+ mile beach......westerly views to catch the sunsets with tropical breezes at your back!
