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.

About Carol - Whymms Villas
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 House in 2005
Why Carol - Whymms Villas chose Long Island
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.

Gorgeous, secluded tropical paradise
If you are tired of crowded resorts with crowded pools with swim up bars, long walks to the beach from your room with a miniscule balcony, then you must stay at On-a-Whymm. This is a beautifully designed and furnished home surrounded by lush landscaping. The beach beyond the private pool is basically deserted with total privacy; at most only saw two other persons. We enjoyed cooking for ourselves a few nights in the well equipped kitchen, but we thoroughly enjoyed Chef Nancy and Annie coming in twice to work their magic preparing delicious 4 course dinners. We enjoyed a great dinner ( delicious Caesar Salad with anchovies, Pasta with Shrimp and Scallops and Veal Limone ) at Chez Pierre's, only a 10 minute drive from the house. We had great lunches at Max's Conch Bar ( fabulous Conch fritters, fresh Conch Salad and Parmesan Hogfish ), Lighthouse Point in Clarence Town at the Flying Fish Marina ( Yucca Cheeseballs, Conch Fritters and yummy fish tacos ) and Cape Santa Maria ( Conch chowder, cracked Conch and grouper fingers ). The most gorgeous, absolutely fantastic beach is Gordon Beach at the southern tip of the Island. Totally secluded and heavenly! Pack a cooler and maybe a picnic and enjoy this magical paradise beach.
The owner of On-a-Whymm, Carol, has put great love and planning into providing all the comforts of home so that guests can truly relax and " go off the grid". She arranges transport from the airport, has the rental car parked at the house and has initial provisions ( of your selection ) awaiting you the moment you arrive. Even the wine is pre-chilled in the special wine refrigerator! If you have any special needs or requests, all you need to do is ask. The home is immaculate, with luxurious bath towels and beach towels, comfortable beds, ceiling fans throughout as well as air conditioning and decorated very tastefully . I highly recommend On-a- Whymm as a truly special place to relax and unwind!
Jean - I am so pleased that you and friends enjoyed On-A-Whymm and Long Island. Thanks for your lovely review. It is always so helpful to us to know when we meet or even exceed our guests expectations. Our mission is to be the best! We look forward to seeing you again on Long Island and at On-A-Whymm again soon!

Beautiful, private home in picture perfect setting
We've rented many private homes but never one as well equipped for day-to-day living as On-A-Whymm. Carol has done a great job anticipating her guests' needs and satisfying them at a high level. She does everything possible to eliminate stress for her guests, including arranging local transportation, stocking provisions prior to arrival, providing all manner of 'beach toys' and offering a helpful guidebook for island activities. On-A-Whymm is very private but perfectly located for access to restaurants, stores and sight-seeing. Cleanliness standards are immaculate, furniture is first-class and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We would return in a heartbeat.
My husband and I spent two weeks at On-A-Wymm, this is our fifth trip to the out islands of the Bahamas and our first to Long Island. This is by far the nicest home we have every stayed in! The island is just the right the mix of laid back and things to do. There are several restaurants near by and plenty of great places to explore. We took advantage of the boat rental with the house and spent many days exploring and catching bone fish. We also spent days, just sitting on the beach in front of the house where Carol has created a peaceful and private oasis for her guest. The home is meticulously maintained leaving you feel as if you were the first guest to have stayed. The island and all its residence are welcoming and glad you are there! We dined at Tony's a great little outdoor dining spot overlooking the water and Chez Pierre where the French chef prepares and serves your delicious food! Having explored the entire island, this home is centrally located on the island and is "the place" to stay on Long Island. Carol is a gem, and makes the planning worry free with detailed information before you arrive , so that the minute you get on the plane you are truly on vacation! We will definitely be returning to On-A-Whymm.
The Perfect Island Life
On a Whymm is a beautiful villa - impeccable design, beautiful landscaping and of course the incredible view! Carol was very helpful, from provisioning, to car-rental drop-off and pickup, and pointing us to a place to buy fresh fish. The boat made the vacation! We loved fishing and snorkeling and going to Tiny's for lunch. This is a quiet, private destination for those wanting to unplug and relax. We'll be back!
What a beautiful experience, from the time you pull up, till you leave !!!!! One of the greatest places we have ever rented. Carol was so great to deal with, trust her you won't be sorry. On-A-Whymm will keep you finding things you never thought you'd find in a rental from spices to cook, to extra everything you could need.
Kim and Jan - was so nice having you! Glad to hear you enjoyed the extra perks - we pride ourselves on trying to have everything you need!!! Good luck on your next adventure in your life and we hope to see you back on the beach in Whymms soon! My Best - Carol
On purpose for On-a-Whymm
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!
Thanks Jim! It always makes me smile when I hear that we have met or exceeded your expectations and equally great to hear how much you enjoyed Long Island!! It's a special place indeed so now you are "in the know". Hope to see you on the beach again soon!
My best, Carol
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.
