Long Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Nestled privately within our 15 acre Beachfront Compound is our Rental Home we call, The Guesthouse. This is a 4 bedroom beach-home built and designed by us to be comfortable and roomy while allowing guests to enjoy themselves on Long Island without breaking the budget ! We built the guesthouse for our many friends and family to enjoy while they visit us but, whenever it’s available, we like to offer it out for rental.

Here’s a summary of the Main Features of the Guesthouse:

**Elevated to catch the Breeze and View

**FREE WIFI internet

**4 Bedrooms with queen beds

**Two full baths with walk in showers

**Large fully equipped kitchen with prep-island

**Living room with full size wet bar& fridge, flatscreen TV and BluRay

**Two 14’ x 17’ screened porches

**Propane BBQ

**Outside wash-off showers and footwashers

**Ceiling fans in Every room and on Both Porches

**Great Island Location

**Extremely Affordable Rates

The Guesthouse is Elevated to catch the balmy trade winds and gorgeous views, and is set back a little bit from the beach. Guests absolutely love the nice large kitchen with center prep-island, and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal or a nice family dinner is there for you !

Adjacent to the kitchen is the first of two large 14’ x 17’ screened porches containing a nice outdoor dining table ready for Six. The stainless steel propane BBQ grill is located right off the porch on the same level for easy grilling in close proximity to the kitchen.

The Guesthouse also features a nice comfortable living room area with a couple of sofas and chairs along with a nice large flat screen TV and Blu Ray Player. The living room has a full size wet bar area featuring a full size refrigerator and double sink along with cabinets full of glasses….you can load this fridge up with ice, sodas, beers and other drinks and keep the kitchen fridge available just for food !

Adjacent to the Living room is the second large screened porch…..this one has another 6 person table and chairs for your enjoyment.

The Guesthouse’s Four Air Conditioned Bedrooms each contain one queen bed, a dresser and mirror, large shelves and a clothes-hanging area. The two bathrooms feature walk in showers and plenty of hot water and water pressure!

We've got Ceiling Fans in every room and they really move the air ! Normally there is plenty of that famous Long Island Breeze blowing through all the windows, but it’s nice to have the fans there for backup. Of course, all Linens, towels and beach towels are provided.

The Whymms area, where we are located, is a mile off the main road and there are only a few other homes on our 2 ½ mile long beach, so this is a nice private and quiet setting. You can Walk the nice long beach out to Whalehead Cay…...Swim in the gin-clear waters or take the kayaks we have and snorkel around the small cays just offshore…maybe get a conch or lobster! Fish for bonefish right out front in one of the best spots on the island (shh, don't tell anybody!!!). Just 150 feet from the beach, you can walk out to the small little coral reefs that are there and look at the muti-colored coral and all the colorful fish swimming in and around the coral ......It's like having your own little salt water fish tank! The bay in front is fun to snorkel in and, even though it’s shallow, We've spotted octopus, conch, lobster, bonefish and all sorts of other stuff right off the beach in front.

Not only are we Super affordable but we are in a Great location !!!!! Our 15 acre property is located in a quiet area of the island and is centrally located between the attractions in the north and south making it a perfect place to be while visiting. We have almost 400 feet of ocean frontage on a 2 ½ mile long beach and spectacular ocean views that you will not tire of! We live here year round and we want all of our guests to get a good taste of what it's like to live on the island and to experience the island life and the island people……

Come to long island..This is the real Bahamas........Live the dream with us!

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing two week stay at Whymmsical Wish. The photos are accurate but they truly don't show the real beauty of the property and the beach. THE BEACH IS AMAZING! It is 2 1/2 miles long with the most amazing Caribbean blue water. There are NO crowds. We were usually the only people on the beach.

The duplex was spacious and airy. The screened in porches were our favourite part of the house to hang out, read books and eat meals. The owner, George, was always available to answer our questions and gave us great recommendations for restaurants (Seaside Village! They have a bar right on the water and Kenny, the owner, pulls the conch right out of the ocean to prepare your conch salad right in front of you).

We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property. We are already planning our next trip back and will stay here again!

A stop at Cape Santa Maria Resort was spectacular.  This is one of the only commercialized resorts on the island and has great views and beaches from the cabana bar.  From there, we cruised along the eastern side of the island to "Moonshine Bar" where the views of the cliffs and crashing waves were phenomenal, to say the least.  Make sure you visit and say "Hi" to Sue.  She was tremendous. The next stop was the Beach Bungalow Bar where the locals put on a "Rake and Scrape" event every Thursday for all of the residents.  Beautiful people and again, awesome sunsets. (Everyone needs to experience a "Rake and Scrape" Event where the locals play "Saws" and "Wash Boards" and make some beautiful music.)
One of the most memorable days of our stay was a full day of fishing on the ocean with "Daniel".   What a phenomenal day we all had!!  Ask George to arrange a day with Daniel.  You will never forget it.  Daniel actually picked us up at George's compound, brought us to the store for groceries and bait, went to the marina, fueled up, loaded the boat and  proceeded out to the north end of Long Island for the most astonishing days of fishing we all ever had, and we fish a lot in Florida!!  The seas were a bit rough, but he took us to some good fishing holes that produced a lot of snapper for dinner.  Then he took us to a reef and we all snorkeled over a reef area that we will never experience again.  He took us to a private, sand beach and we chilled out for a while before taking us back to George's compound, where Daniel, our guide, cleaned the fish and grilled them to perfection for our dinner.   You need to meet Daniel!!!  He is a terrific guide and our "Newest Best Friend"....other than George~~~
On another adventurous day, George guided us to the famous "Kenny's Seaside Villas" on the leeward side of the island.  This is truly a must see place...to say the least!!!.  Kenny does everything...When you get there, he waves you down to the Tiki Bar on the Ocean, where he is a one stop shop!!!  He makes the drinks, prepares the meals and serves them, right in front of you.  You have to experience the Conch Salad, prepared especially for you by Kenny.  You actually pick our your own live Conch from his fresh Ocean Pool and watch him prepare his wonderful Conch Salad in front of you.  Larry and Jackie and Bonnie and Bob will recommend George's Place highly to all!!!  You truly need to experience this for yourself!  You will NEVER forget this place, guaranteed!!!

REVIEW OF George's Place.....

You will never again experience anything like this in your entire life. George takes care of every need. We knew from the moment we arrived at Stella Maris Airport( another experience) we were treated like royalty. Every person we met on Long Island was like your long lost friend. What a great treat. George arranged every detail , from the moment we arrived til the day of departure. George had a local fisherman dive for lobster and bring lobsters to his compound for our first night's meal. They were the size of a man's forearm and very tasty. We were only there for a week, but we experienced a lifetime of memories. "George's Compound" consists of his beautiful 4000 sf home and 3 rental villas. All of the accommodations were very clean, had all of the amenities anyone needs and from our patio, every morning and evening we experienced the sunrise and sunset over the ocean. Every sunset was different each day, creating another awesome memory. From the time you arrive, you are totally in another world, and what a great world it is. George programmed our entire stay and arranged for all of the accommodations we needed for a week's worth of fun and sun. We saw 14 unbelievable beaches, and every beach was different. The "Trash Beach" is a must see. One of the most memorable experiences is Dean's Blue Hole, where William Trubridge, free dives to depths beyond your imagination. We actually were there on a day when he did a free dive to more than 443 ft. We snorkeled above the blue hole and saw the same dive he filmed on the "60 Minutes" segment the weekend we got back home. That was historical. George provided maps and guidance to "Must Sees" on Long Island. He arranged for a car rental so we could experience firsthand the actual "Island Life". One day we went to Columbus's Monument, on George's recommendation, and climbed to the summit and enjoyed the views of the north end of the island, truly a sight to see. Virtually a panoramic view of the ocean from a summit on the cliffs of Long Island. (REVIEWS CONTINUED....)
