PRIVATE TROPICAL COTTAGE NEAR THE BEACH! - CHEAPER THAN A HOTEL!!

Long Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

An inviting, relaxing vacation home that will make you feel welcome. A uniquely designed house nestled in lush gardens and just off a 2 1/2 mile long nearly deserted beach. This 1 Bedroom 1 Bath Cottage provides the privacy needed for a peaceful vacation. The Cottage at Palmirage is the perfect place to take things easy and unwind.

Curl up in the Hammock with a cold drink and a book. Take your fishing pole out to the bight and catch your dinner, then bring it back to the fish cleaning station and BBQ an evening of fresh seafood. Or ask us to get some fresh fish for you and have it prepared while you just relax. Kayak out to the nearby Cays for a morning of snorkeling. Or just pull up a beach chair and enjoy the water.

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. 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.

If you have any special requests please let us know. If you need some groceries, beer, liquor or soda we'd be happy to pick that up for you so it will be ready upon arrival...nothing like a nice cold drink after a day of travelling.

Same thing with arrangements for Rental Cars, Fishing guides, restaurants..whatever !!! We are here to take the mystery out of Long Island so you can have a stress-free stay and pack in as much fun as possible while you are here.

Veggie Garden is going strong! Help yourself to whatever is ripe today!! Zucchini, Tomatoes, Peppers, Lettuce, Radishes and Cucumbers are plentiful!! Kale, Broccoli Rab, Carrots, Tomatillos and Eggplant soon to come!

Don't miss the opportunity to explore Long Island, which is the most attractive of all the Bahamas out islands, with quaint settlements dotted between gentle rolling hills. Here nature is still unspoiled. Historical sites remind us of the interesting past and where people are amongst the friendliest in the Bahamas. This is the perfect spot for a Bahamas vacation of a lifetime!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We've stayed at The Cottage at Palmirage and would love to again.

The accommodations are funky and fabulous...everything you need for a most relaxing time. You're only steps to a most fabulous beach, but there is total relaxation right out front, too. Shops are convenient, as are restaurants and bars, if you don't feel like cooking in the wonderful kitchen. Your hosts, Sara and Dan, are very accommodating and do all they can to make your stay a real visit to Paradise!

Dan & Sara fell in love with Long Island 10 years ago when they were travelling the Bahamas on their sailboat. They started building their house in 2003 and built the entire place themselves. Then they built the Guest Cottage, so they could share the island with you! They spend the winters in the Bahamas and the summers in the States traveling along with their adopted Bahamian Potcake Dog- Bambi.

Sara Werra purchased this cottage in 2006

Whymms Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent place to stay to base out of while exploring the entire island. Beach is a short walk away. Accurate description, photos do not do justice. Really a nice place, very clean, comfortable, with a nice vib. Owners very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property and recommend the entire island. Fantastic island to visit. Have to have a rental car as the island is 80 miles long and holds beautiful secluded beaches south to north. No report on fishing as I was too busy enjoying other aspects of the island. Nicest people I have ever met. Very safe with no worries. Cant wait to return.

Quiet, cozy comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5
I arrived after a last minute decision. I am so glad the cottage was available. It is comfortable and has anything I would need. Most of which I did not use. I like the change of pace and great beach walks. I finished a couple of books I brought and read parts of the ones there for the spirit and flavor of the islands. Shopping is always and experience. No big box stores here, just local friendly markets. Sara's garden is producing and it is so nice to pick fresh for meals. Local restaurants offer a variety of island foods. Sara and Dan will shop or cook

It's been a quiet week on Long Island

Our first time to Long Island so we will be back! Our hosts in the main house next door were amazingly accommodating. Our trip was fortunate to coincide with their Cinco de Mayo party so we were able to meet some amazing locals as well as US ex-pats who have houses on the island. We found in our well-stocked kitchen fresh tomatoes and bell peppers from the on-site garden, as well as a dozen eggs and butter in the refrigerator, and plenty of condiments and spices. The king-size bed was very comfortable and with all the windows opened we did not use the AC. And at night on the front porch, the starry skies were a sight! And the dead quiet of the island at night - no motors of any kind in the distance save the rare vehicle on the Queen's Highway passing a half-mile away.

My wife and I rent a rugged car and drive down almost all trails to all Atlantic beaches, and for the most part we were the only people on the beach. Ever. Lots of shells and sea glass. Then around lunch we would find the nearest local eatery for some great Bahamian food. We would generally be home at night for our meal, then take a dip in the warm water of the quiet-side beach a short walk from the house.

There can be no more relaxing vacation than the Out Islands. The relatively central location of the Cottage at Palmirage made this trip possible. The fact that the owners literally constructed this house themselves assured attention to detail and great maintenance. And the wifi was strong due to a new signal booster, so we could keep up with home.

Perfect home base for a bone-fishing get-away

  • 5 of 5
We would recommend this little cottage to any couple looking for an off-the-beaten-path getaway. It is perfect in every way ... well built, comfortable, and a five minute walk to a great beach. Sara and Dan can offer all sorts of advice about where to explore on the island, but if you are looking to relax, you won't have to leave their little street. The bikes, snorkeling gear, beach chairs and sea kayak are huge bonuses. We look forward to returning again and again.

A lovely place with lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5
This is really an ideal place from which to explore this rustic and remote island, since it is located right in the middle point of the long highway that connects the north to the south. It is also merely a short walk from a beautiful sandy beach with tranquil waters. The house is equipped with everything one might need, and it is attractively arranged. What's more, our hostess Sara was so proactive in making arrangements for airport pick-up, car rental, and scuba diving all in advance for us. She and her husband are very personable and even invited us to tag along to one of their favorite seaside restaurants, where we had the opportunity to meet and mingle with so many friendly locals. They also allowed us access to many of their own resources: bikes, wetsuits, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and so on. They really treated us as friends. All told, their guest house and everything that comes with it adds up to a terrific value and a great experience!

came down to relax after a hectic summer in which summer vacation got shortened and to look for a potentail vacation property to buy for ourselves.
Sarah was so helpful in arranging a car, telling us where to shop, directions, introducing us to some other expats to really get a feel for what "retirement" living would be like down there - we really appreciated her efforts and Dan her husband makes a mean margherita ( I can never spell that - even before I've had a few).
The cottage itself was perfect - clean, well equipped, a comfy bed, and a quick walk to the beach - what more could you ask for?
This is the perfect rental for a couple looking to looking to totally relax and unplug.
thanks so much,
we'll be back
