About Judd and Dale Managers/Owners

OK, so just one of us is a bit pool crazy: That's Judd. Check out his view: see the White Cliff's in the background? Just about the spot that Columbus viewed on his second landing in the New World in Oct 1492.

Dale and I are from Chicago, did our business there and retired to this PERFECT spot 23 years ago.

AIN'T life GRAND !!!!!!!!!

We (Dale and I) met at College and eventually after Judd's short career in engineering, and Dale's in primary education, joined together to own the 4th generation family business. Business was FUN: but living here in The wonderful, healthy, fun Bahamas is 'MUCH MORE BETTER.'

The Bahamas was a PERFECT place for our growing family, during vacations for them, and eventually for their spouses and our grandchildren.

Judd is a private pilot and has taken Dale and the family, and many friends to other islands of The Bahamas. BUT Long Island is the BEST. The people of this island have made our many vacations into our HOME.

This place (our White Cliff Estate) has grown and has NOW allows us to sit back and enjoy our boat and all our adventures.

Judd and Dale Managers/Owners purchased this estate in 1989

Why Judd and Dale Managers/Owners chose Stella Maris

The White Cliff Estate wasn't our first venture here on Long Island. First, we came visiting; a short vacation rental visit, just like you are thinking about. Then after seeing this breathtaking view, and this amazing house designed, we learned later, by internationally renowned architect Ray James Holman Nathaniels, we purchased it ALL. Who knew.

(Go ahead look him up. His work was just taken into the collection at the Royal Institute of British Architects: and a talk was given about his work titled: 'under Closer Look talk: Caribbean Homes by Ray Nathaniels).

It was said that he hand-picked this site and sat on it for days until the design was finished.

We fell in love with the property 23 years ago. A few years ago we wanted an up-date and called Ray Nathaniels and asked how he thought we would best bring it up to the Newest Standards of materials and design. 2 1/2 years later (BAM !! ) we have our re-invented property.

Something very special about its location was important to us, and that is the constant soft Ocean Long Island breeze that allows for a cool BUG FREE climate and everyday pleasant living.

What makes this estate unique

The benefits of his design gives shade inside the house while allowing wide expansive views of the pool, Ocean, gardens; great sunrises and sunsets. Mostly is the FUN FUN entertaining on all the decks, the outdoor living, while surrounded by tall garden walls, allowing secure privacy.

3 Zone air-conditioning, while useful at times, is not always needed as open giant Pella doors brings the Bahamas breeze circulating fresh clean tropical air - a breath of Tropical Paradise.

We have spent our time here assisting and sharing our time in another country. Many don't have that opportunity. Judd was appointed to serve on the Board of the Antiquities, Monuments, and Museum Corporation, the national government corporation responsible of the safety and research of National Cultural Heritage. (By the way, PLEASE go see the Long Island Museum in Buckleys. It's very current and Fun.) and ..............

Dale serves on the Ladies Friendship Club, the group that built and runs the Senior Recreational Centre in Grays (Take the time to visit.)

ENJOY your time on Long Island, our nice property, and: COME BACK at least once a week.

Getting away from it all while still having it all

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the Bahamas — my wife and our two college-aged children and my sister and her husband. We wanted to get away from it all and have a relaxing time in the Caribbean — and boy did we ever. Much of the relaxation came because Judd and Dale took care of so many of the details for us. He told us which flights from Nassau to book. He had a taxi waiting for us. He helped us arrange our rental car. He told us about the island masseuse. Judd introduced us to Urshula, who cooked two unforgettable dinners for us at the house. He gave us tips and suggestions for more things to do than we’d have time for if we stayed there a month (which now that I mention it is a pretty good idea!). It’s impossible to overstate how helpful Judd and Dale were.

The house is unbelievable. Walk through the front gate and there’s a lovely garden — a haven for birds, including a hummingbird during our stay. The pool and patio are exquisite and the view is unforgettable. At night you can’t believe the stars. Inside, the house has everything — the six of us were very comfortable. On Judd’s recommendation we went to Chez Pierre’s. You simply must go to Chez Pierre’s. Make your own drink at the bar, settle in and enjoy some of the best cooking anywhere. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Dean’s Blue Hole. The beach at Cape Santa Maria Resort is to die for. We can’t wait to return.

Best trip EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where do we start? We had an AMAZING time on Long Island. We are a family of 5 and our children's ages are 13, 10 and 8. We just wanted to stay in a nice place on an island away from the busyness of Atlantis. Well, we got it! Judd and Dale, the owners of White Cliff Estate were AMAZING to work with. They helped us book our flights, drove our rental car to us when we got to the airport, hooked us up with a fishing trip that was amazing, found a church for us to go to and the list goes on and on. The house was INCREDIBLE!!! The pool was OUR FAVORITE! The view was just breathtaking. One of our favorite things we did was just sit on the pool deck while the kids swam. Judd and Dale set up a night where their house keeper, Ursula, came in and cooked an amazing dinner. We had our own personal chef for a night. It was a meal we will never forget! Since we stayed there 7 nights, Judd and Dale gave us a free ECO Tour with Charles and Teresa Knowles. INCREDIBLE!!! That was one of our favorite memories! We saw so many incredible starfish and caught a lot of conch!! It was the best trip EVER! We highly recommend Long Island and highly recommend the White Cliff Estate! The house is beautiful and has everything you need. We look forward to going back!

Beautiful home and amazing ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! It was perfect! Judd & Dale were wonderful and so very helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed and helped us navigate the area. The house was splendid. The pool was my favorite spot. The view was amazing. You can see the sunrise and the sunsets from the central patio area. It was so nice sleeping with the doors open and having the ocean sound and breeze all night. The house is close to Stella Maris Resort where we had several wonderful dinners. I have recommended it to many friends and family. We fell in love with the island and will be back!

Wonderful property with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 and this was our first time to Long Island. What a spot this was. The house and grounds were very nice and the pool was just right to cool off in after a day of sightseeing. The house had everything you could want. To really get to know Long Island you do need to rent a car.

The owners, Judd and Dale were very helpful in guiding us who to use for car rentals and fishing trips along with other things we shouldn't miss while we were there.

We would highly recommend this villa to couples or families headed to Long Island

Hidden Jem....

  • 5 of 5

We have known the Rosen's for many years. They have built the finest home in the area. We rented it for our overflow and it became the center of the vacation. Charles and Teresa, the caretakers are terrific and provided much of the fun we had on the trip as well as coming over to cook our fish, bring bananas etc. The pool is on deck with a superb view of the Atlantic for many miles. You can walk to the Inn in a few minutes or drive there in a couple. The house is spotless and unlike most places on the island has all the modern amenities. The internet actually works great. Loved the kitchen and we cooked all our meals there. Would recommend White Cliff to anyone....

Amazing Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

I brought a group of research colleagues to the house from March 31 to April 7, 2012 (the review app wouldn't let me go back farther). I was privileged to be the first guests in this incredible home. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Cheryl picked us up from the airport. We rented two cars for our team from Omar, and a wonderful lady, Ursulla (I believe) made a wonderful dinner for us the first night. She prepared baked chicken, peas & rice (my favorite), coleslaw and a lobster salad that was incredible! Oh, and a coconut tart for desert. Delicious! The view from the pool and deck is simply stunning. We had about five people with us on the trip and everyone was very comfortable given the layout of the house. My wife and I stayed in the private master, and it was perfect. The outdoor shower was great. We have been to most of the family islands but Long Island is by far my favorite, and this house is the best I've seen yet. Long Island has incredible beaches in the north, plenty of places to eat, and Max's Conch Bar! Stella Maris is great b/c everything you need is right there.

Our research takes us from the far north of the island to the very far south. It was easy getting to all of the spots we needed to visit. Lastly, the owners are delightful. Judd traveled with us down south to show us a cave. He was a real trooper. Our work lasted all day! It was great having him with us and sharing a bit of his incredible knowledge of the island. Thanks a ton and we hope to be back on Long Island soon!!!
