About Long Island, Bahamas: 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. In his ship’s log, an entry mentions taking on fresh water, trading with the natives, and notes that this was the most beautiful island he had ever seen. 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.

I'm a semi-retired architectural / interior designer / builder from the Northeast now enjoying my new lifestyle in the Bahamas. Taking care of my beachfront rentals and guests is my new job (though it doesn't feel like a job!) and introducing many to Long Island for the first time. I enjoy this slice of heaven with my 2 Jack Russells - Sketch & Nikko
Carol - Whymms Villas purchased this villa in 2005
I chose Long Island first for this beautiful beachfront parcel I was able to purchase. I wanted to design a villa that was one's own private resort! Second was for the natural beauty of Long Island and the relaxed pace one finds here - a perfect backdrop for getting away from it all - and finally the people here - the friendly nature of Long Islanders is such a welcome feel and the the vibe on Long Island is second to none.
What's unique about 'On-A-Whymm'? EVERYTHING - ! If you are looking for all the conveniences of home (and then some) mixed with island style set on an idyllic beach - then come see us. You'll see why we think 'On-A-Whymm' is very special.
On-A-Whymm was Wonderful! Beautifully designed and well appointed home with a stunning beach side location. Carol was great in arranging all aspects of our stay, making everything easy and enjoyable - from stocking the fridge, to guides, taxi, rental car, and things-to-do. It was very hard to leave our beach, yard, pool, and back porch but exploring the island was fun. We have stayed in several home rentals on several of the out islands, but found this place the best!
Carol, you helped me provide the impossible... a family vacation that satisfied everyone! It's difficult to find a vacation spot that is entertaining enough for teens/ young adults (without the "resort" vibe) & relaxing enough for everyone else. "On-a-Whymm" provided both! Between the boat and the kayaks... the beaches and the restaurants... we were lulled into blissful happiness quickly. Long Island is magical and Carol thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. When our family discussed where to go for next year's family vacation... it was unanimous! See you next year, Carol!
My husband and I travel 3 weeks a year and have been to some pretty impressive places. On-a-Whymm is definitely one of the best! Cannot wait to go back!! Carol has thought of everything! The home itself is beautiful...extremely clean...with a lot of extras. Both suites have an outdoor shower, the kitchen is large with everything that you need besides the food, outdoor grill, warm yet refreshing pool....and the beach.........that's the best part! We used the larger boat to snorkel and fish off of the keys, which is a must! I honestly could go on and on, but I kinda want to keep this our secret, lol, so it's available when we can come back....which will be soon!!
Carol, the owner....is the nicest lady ever! She will be in contact with you any time needed and answers emails and phone calls right away. Such a treat compared to other places that we have tried. Even the locals love Carol! The couple that own the liquor store told us how she brought them lights and things to help them when their home was hurt by the hurricane. So awesome! Who does that?!? :) great people, that's who :)!!
We tried two restaurants on the island...Max's - a must - try the conch salad! And the restaurant at the resort near the airport, also fantastic.
If your looking for peaceful and unique, you have to try On-A-Whymm! Enjoy!
"On a Whymm" is by far the best rental I've had on VRBO and I've had plenty of nice ones! It has everything one could want in a rental, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, beautiful surroundings, accommodating owner. There was nothing that we needed or wanted that wasn't there. The house is stunning, beautifully decorated and well designed to provide privacy if there are more than one couple traveling together. And then there is Carol, the owner, who lives nearby with her adorable dogs. She's there is you need her but she respects your privacy if you don't. I really cannot say enough good things about "On a Whymm", it's the closest thing to heaven in Long Island!
From the time you first set foot in the foyer, everything about On-A-Whymm underlines the term ‘elegant Cape Beach Cottage’; from the restful colors, the louvered shutters, and cove ceilings, to the wainscoting on the walls and all the beach- and sea-related touches, you’d swear you were in a cottage about to look out over the gray Atlantic. But it’s even better. Instead of pines you have palm trees, hibiscus and bougainvillea instead of hydrangeas, and rather than a monochrome ocean to take in, you have the green and turquoise stripes of the Caribbean. It takes a bit of getting used to.
A lot of thought was put into making On-a-Whymm exactly right. We were two couples sharing the house, and its set-up was perfect for us: two master suites on opposite ends, divided by a living area. The kitchen, should you feel the urge to cook, has upgraded everything, and there’s also an outdoor grill. If you can get past the pool without stepping in, it’s about 15 steps from the porch to the beach. Along the way you will find all manner of lounge chairs, and tables (thank you….tables!!) for drinks.
The villa itself is extremely well furnished, with more than enough cookware, dishes, glasses, and gadgets that you never knew you’d need. There are more books here than you could read in a year, with enough bookshelves to rival a small town library. More than a few are of the history of Long Island so you can learn as you go, and maybe you can still meet some of the people on those pages on your trip around the island. There is also Wifi that works well all around the house and outside.
Carol is a delight to work with; she lives nearby should you need something, but otherwise you won’t see her. She even arranged for our rental car and had it in the driveway when we arrived.
The villa and the experience at On-a-Whymm are both 5-star.
On-A-Whymm has likely ruined me for other southern vacations. The photos show a beautiful home. The perfection that is On-A-Whymm has to be experienced in person to truly appreciate what a gem it is. My husband and I, and my brother and his wife, had the fantastic opportunity of enjoying a week in On-A-Whymm on Long Island in the Bahamas. The owner, Carol, has included every single thing in this property to make a vacation here your best ever. The home, with its exquisite attention to detail, it's delightful location directly on the beach, it's perfectly sized pool and pool deck, it's outdoor and indoor eating options - all add up to one spectacular holiday. I've rented properties in other locations, and stayed at many 5 star all inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean. On-A-Whymm tops them all. If you can arrange a stay in this beautiful piece of paradise, I encourage you to do so. You will NOT be disappointed.
Long Island is located 165 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas. Daily flights are available. Flight time is approximately 45 minutes. On Long Island there are two very different coasts, 'On-A-Whymm' is located on the one with soft white beaches and the other with rocky headlands that descend suddenly into the ocean. The terrain varies from sloping hills in the north to low hillsides, with numerous limestone caves, fading into flatlands in the south. Long Island stretches over 75 miles, with many small settlements along Queen’s Highway. The scenery from the highway changes from old buildings surrounded by stone walls, to beautiful beaches with calm blue water. One can spend the day on a remote beach with complete privacy, or tour the island and shop for pottery, woven goods, or fresh fruit. Go to lunch at an authentic island conch bar serving fresh fish, conch, and lobster. Take the time to meet the locals, becoming one with the island.
