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!

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

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!
We would highly recommend this property to any couple. Sara and Dan thought of everything- including use of bikes and kayak and supplying drinking water at no extra charge. They have a great T.V., lots of movies and satellite music. Their cottage is the best we've rented in seven trips to Bahamas outislands and our fourth time to Long Island.We also rented our nicest car from Annie's-the car is a must as there is lots to see on Long Island. Sara suggested we tour Cartwright's Cave, which was right on as a must-see. We love the people on Long Island, the great bonefishing, and the many beautiful deserted beaches. We will return and thanks again to Sara and Dan for the best stay.
Sara and Dan were wonderful hosts. The Palmirage was an excellent well kept cottage - everything you could ask for.-bikes, kayak, towels, full kitchen, nice clean bathroom, washer/dryer, beach chairs, etc. Sara was great with giving directions and pointing out great places to eat and visit. The locals are very friendly and I highly recommend the farmers market on Sat. mornings. I highly recommend staying there.....it will be on our list to return. Thank You Sara! I hope your friend was able to find the dog!
What a wonderful time we had at Palmirage. Sara and Dan are excellent hosts and provided everything we could ever need - kayak, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, towels, etc. They have really thought of everything. The cottage is great - beds are very comfortable, lots of hot water, great kitchen with everything you could want, and excellent internet service. Be sure to rent a car - Annie's Car Rental was very accommodating. The company's owner Presley Pindler also does boat excursions for snorkeling - I highly recommend you let him show you some fabulous fish! Enjoy your trip to Long Island!
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.
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
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.
Come to the Cottage at Palmirage and relax on vacation! We strive to provide cozy, comfortable and fun accomodations at an affordable price. The full size appliances in the Kitchen make it easy to take care of special diet needs while on vacation. The vegetable garden is a big hit in season with fresh pickings for salads. Ideal for the Vegetarian on holiday! Grab the cooler provided and the beach chairs and head off to the beach for a picnic day. Paddle the Kayak off to Whale Head or Dilda Rock and snorkle around. Bait up the fishing rod and catch some dinner off the beach, then come back to the grill and eat your fresh fish! Take a bike ride and look at the colonial tomb on your way to an inland Blue Hole! We have it all for you...grab your swimsuit and sandals and come on down!
