5 Star Review for Whymmsical Wish Cottage
We had a wonderful 1 week stay at Whymmsical Wish Cottage from 1/5-1/12/2013. The cottage was just as described including the lovely setting, clean and well maintained. It was perfect for 2 couples as well as 1 couple. Even before we arrived George had responded to every question we asked including detailed directions to the cottage from the airport. George greeted us when we arrived, showed us around the property and suggested where we could find a delicious Bahamian dinner.
George’s customer service could not have been better. He visited every day to see if we needed anything. He guided us to people for fishing and snorkeling trips, provided sight seeing suggestions and directions, and generally made sure we were enjoying ourselves. As we freeze in PA, we can smile thinking about the many gorgeous beaches we walked, the Bahamian food we enjoyed, the Rake & Scrape music we danced to and the gorgeous sunsets including a green flash we watched.
Many thanks, George, for a warm and special vacation. We can eagerly recommend your cottage to friends and family. And we hope to return.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and were able to unplug with no worries! There are a few other homes in the general area but the beach is so large we went most days without seeing another person. There is plenty of beach to explore here and throughout the island. The house was equipped with everything we needed including an outdoor charcoal grill. And our hosts were wonderful and full of information. The island is large so it was great to have someone who could tell us where everything was. Islanders know where everything is so there weren't alot of signs. The porch on the cottage was perfect for dinner at night and evening games. We didn't need the air conditioning as the winds cooled off the house since it was built up a flight of stairs. My husband used the kayak every morning and explored the cays off our our beach. Definitely a place to unwind from the hectic way of life at home!
We stayed in both cottages for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Years with our 4 kids and grandparents - just perfect! Since we rented both cottages, every generation could live on its own path: seniors had their early morning coffee and swim, mid-age could do some work in the morning - thanks to Wifi - and the Youngsters could sleep in and kite surf right in front of the property.
Both cottages are clean, colourful, friendly and well equipped! You get a clean up every week and as much towels as you want. Everything is there when you arrive and George is great with organizing whatever it is before you come.
The South part of Long Island had a lot of damages through the hurricane end of September 2015 and you still could see destroyed houses. The area of Whymsical Wish looks much better and although the water raised about 5 feet onto the property, George did a great job in cleaning up and restoring the garden.
George and Cindy are fantastic hosts!!! They helped us with any issue: broken rental cars (ask George for recommendations !), where to get fresh seafood and how to prepare it the right way, where to go for swimming, shopping, sight-seeing and everything else you can think of!
Our highlight was their invitation for Christmas dinner and boxing day with their whole family - imagine we were 8 more to feed! These folks are just incredibly welcoming and generous - we had a great time and want to come again for sure!
My husband and I spent a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable 9 days at the cottage . We look for locations that are out- of- the- way, quiet, restful, and beautiful, and this certainly was one of those. We had convenient access to a private beach where we spent alot of time walking or running, exploring, and where we went kayaking one afternoon. The cottage was clean, well equipped, comfortable,and the grounds well maintained. Our host, George, made us feel very welcome and was attentive to anything we might need. We enjoyed attending the local Saturday morning Farmers Market and prepared most of our own meals , but enjoyed eating lunch at a couple of great restaurants on the island: the Cape Santa Maria Resort restaurant at the northern end of the island, and the Outer Edge Grill at the marina in Clarence Town. We definitely recommend this property to anyone that wants a a restful break from the frenzy of civilization
George makes your stay here special. Helpful when you want him to be. Perfect location. Clean and spacious. I only wish I could give it six stars.
My wife and I spent a week in late Februray at this very comfortable beach cottage. Couldn't have been a better week of weather and beach. The owner, George, helped us with our travel plans and checked on us frequently at the cottage to offer assistance with directions, local stores, etc.
We rented a car and traveled to the fantastic beach in the north, Santa Maria, to the beatiful Gordon Beach in the south as well as many beaches in between. White sugar sands and turquoise water. At most we would see a couple of others on the beach, but often had the entire beach to ourselves. Must see: Blue Hole. Note: Side roads are quite rough. On a return vist we would rent an SUV or high clearance vehicle.
This was our second trip to Long Island - last time we stayed in the south. We love it because it is so quiet, simple and untouched - every day we take our kids to a new, different and completely deserted beach! Our expectations were therefore high for this trip but the Whyms location in the middle of the island on the Caribbean/leeward side and George and Cindy's welcome and comfortable cottage easily exceeded those expectations. The cottage is in site of and a short walk from the beach and is well equipped and comfortable. George's discrete but always available hosting from his nearby home really supplemented our stay - he kindly did a grocery shop in advance of our arrival, he recommended car hire and restaurants, he gave us daily weather and beach suggestions, he sorted out our flight changes on departure and he even conjured up candles for my wife's birthday cake! Thank you George and Cindy for a wonderful stay - we all loved it, Jamie, Sarah, Tessa (6) and Charlie (4). We will be returning for sure.
Located on a beautiful bay ringed by a 2+ mile beach......westerly views to catch the sunsets with tropical breezes at your back!
