Ryan Carroll purchased this villa in 2003
Ryan's Ocean View is uniquely situated. It's a hide-away that is close to the world famous Dean's Blue Hole, restaurants and marina. The property itself is isolated, yet you are never alone.... Watch boats sail by while relaxing on the sun decks or soaking in the hot tub.
There is always a cool & refreshing breeze blowing. The house is situated on the Atlantic ocean side of the island making it a pleasure to be out of doors every day.
We gladly join the line of enthusiastic reviews about your beautiful home.. After a lovely Christmas day with our children who live in New York, we did not need much convincing to join them on a week's holiday to The Bahamas. For all of us, it was the first time, but hopefully not the last.
There was absolutely nothing which we did not thoroughly enjoyed... Staying in your tasteful and exceptionable home. The whole island, beaches and sea right at your door step. The friendliness of our host, Ingrid as well as her daughter, the people of Long Island and last but not least the perfect climate. What a shame we missed meeting you in person Ryan. But maybe there will be another chance if you should ever travel to Germany? Thank you so much.

We enjoyed our stay, we enjoyed our friends and most of all we enjoyed Ryan`s house.
The location (central/southern part of this island) and layout of this house make this place a perfect retreat for family with children or 2 couples.
Very close to places serving exceptionally fresh and tasty island` food.
Just go there and enjoy this very unique island.

What a lovely beach house just a few steps away from the ocean!
The house was clean and tidy and furnished with everything you could possibly need. The wrap around deck affords you a beautiful ocean view and sun or shade depending on your preference.
A vehicle is required to get you to some absolutely spectacular sights and beaches most of which are relatively short distances away.
If you crave a comfortable house next to a beautiful beach with privacy you can't go wrong!
We'll definitely be back!
My first impression was WOW!! The views are spectacular. The patio has outdoor seating so you can enjoy breakfast or dinner with an amazing oceanview as your backdrop. There's a jacuzzi and lounges on the patio as well. Truly, the home had all the amenities we needed and more. It's tucked away but close enough to the airport, restaurants and beautiful beaches. I can't forget to mention Ingrid, the caretaker, who greeted us, gave recommendations and made us feel at home during our stay. I would highly recommend Ryan's Ocean View to anyone who wants a spacious beach home with great views and warm hospitality.
Our whole experience there was wonderful, except that our stay was too short! Ryan's Ocean View is a beautifully- decorated, immaculately-clean, comfortable house with all the amenities. The beds are very comfortable, with high-quality linens. It was such a nice place to come back to each evening after exploring the island. Ryan and Patrice were wonderful to deal with. Ingrid was away so we were met by Jeanette at the car rental (Unique Wheels), who brought us to the house and was a great resource for what to do on the island. We had a wonderful dinner at Rowdy Boys in the Winterhaven resort not far from the house and one of the best meals of our Bahama's trip. The best conch salad is at Max Conch Bar! We discovered Gordon's Beach and had it to ourselves all day. "THIS is paradise," my husband said when we drove up to it. We snorkeled most of the day there. Like another reviewer said, the stores are little markets but we were able to find all we needed for nice meals.
Long Island has a lot of charm and we have many quirky stories from our stay. One night we saw a black, wild pig running alongside the road, cute as can be. The next day we stopped to "talk" to a local goat, making goat sounds back and forth. The dogs there are as laid back as the people. We'd drive by them laying near the road, sunning themselves. Every day we wore bathing suits under our clothes and had our snorkel gear in the car and just drove the island, and stopped to snorkel and ooh and ahh over the beautiful beaches.
We had a great time on Long Island and staying at Ryan's Oceanview and would definitely return!
***Note: Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! The Bahamian sun is to be taken seriously, especially if you are fair-skinned like I am. Also, I did not get a single bug bite during our 8-day stay in the Bahamas. 2 weeks before the trip I started a B-Complex vitamin and a garlic supplement and also sprayed Vanilla Fantasies Body Spray (internet search said this works, so does Victoria's Secret Amber Romance) on each time we left the house. Locals use baby oil.
We had a blissful week at Ryan's Ocean View. Ingrid met us and took us to the house which sits on a bluff overlooking both the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean. The house was beautifully furnished and impeccably clean with a wide porch with comfortable outside furniture to enjoy the view and sun. Long Island experienced a horrible hurricane last October, but the island and people are recovering. The people were friendly and helpful and always made us feel welcome. We visited beaches that were stunningly gorgeous with white sand and crystal clear blue water. We visited Dean's Blue hole where National Geographic Magazine was filming for an upcoming issue, visited Santa Maria Resort and had grilled lobster and fresh conch salad, sitting under umbrellas with a gorgeous view of the ocean. This island is for those who like the quiet, natural beauty of the Bahamas with friendly people and not the crowds of larger, more populated islands.
The property is absolutely amazing! Great location and great layout... The stars at night from the jacuzzi was unbelievable!
