Beautiful spot and great hosts!
We had the pleasure of staying with George and Cindy for almost 2 weeks in January and early February. I don't think we've ever been treated nicer at any home rented on HomeAway, AirBnb, etc. George and Cindy treat you like family, always checking in to see that everything was okay, and to see if we needed help with ideas for places to explore, beaches to walk, ideas for fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, and just general information about the the lovely people in place of Long Island. We had a mini medical emergency that led to a midnight call to their house and they were up immediately helping us understand what our options were. Thankfully with their help, the crises resolved and we gave Cindy credit for being a lifesaver! Now if we can just get her to be able to control the weather, she'll have it all (but who can complain about mid seventies and a beautiful breeze; there were just a few days when the weather was a bit windy for fishing). The house is beautiful appointed, well built, clean and uncluttered, had everything you could want in the well-supplied kitchen. We stayed in the smaller of two houses. I assume the other is equally perfectly appointed. Again George checked in regularly to see if we needed towels or if we were missing anything -- pots and pans, a cooler, beach chairs, etc. We did borrow a pizza pan and that was great! George helped us set up a rental car with Stanley who met us at the tiny airport. George had some groceries ready that we requested since we arrived on a Sunday.
Katie & Scott, thanks for the kind words !!! It was our pleasure to host you two for a winter break and we are sooo glad that you had a good time in spite of a few windy days. We are very happy that you enjoyed the cottage, the island and the island people...the best peeps in the world for sure. Ya know, it really makes us happy when people come down and can see the island for themselves and experience all that Long Island has to offer. Even though it's only 350 miles from Miami, it seems as though you are in your own little paradise, far far away from it all. Glad you two could experience that !
Thanks again and come on back to Long Island next time ya need a break....there are more bonefish to be caught !

Quaint place to call home
George made our trip to Long Island well with it! The cottage is literally a place you feel at home. The location is ideal for traveling to both ends of the island or simply staying on the property. Many of the conveniences you would expect for kitchen, bath, and resting. Beautiful views and an amazing reef close to shore. The generosity and helpfulness of Goerge and Cindy makes everyday on the island a “good day”!
Great meeting you both !!! Long Island is a super place and we are Glad we could provide a place for you to relax while exploring all the sights of the island...come back soon !

A great experience and a great island
The property is everything as advertised. It is close to the beach with easy accessibility to Queen's Highway and the entire island. George and Cindy are some of the nicest people we've met and were extremely helpful in all parts of our stay on Long Island. They provided both the amenities needed to make our stay easier and pleasurable but also have a wealth of knowledge about the island that only a 17 year resident and a native Bahamian could provide in regards to groceries, beaches, restaurants, snorkeling and more. The 2 bedroom cottage was large enough for us and has all the necessities for your stay whether it be a week or a month or more.. and kayaks, beach needs,, etc are provided. We have already discussed returning next year. Heartily recommend this property if you are even considering it. You will not be disappointed.
Lastly, in regards to Long Island, it is beautiful and you have access to both Caribbean and Atlantic oceans within 4 miles of each other and the people are among the nicest and friendliest we encountered in all our travels.
Relaxing Vacation on a Quiet beach
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!
Thanks for staying with us ! It was our pleasure to have you two and your daughter see our special island ! Come back soon !

Unforgettable holidays for the whole family
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!
great choice for beach vacation
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
Located on a beautiful bay ringed by a 2+ mile beach......westerly views to catch the sunsets with tropical breezes at your back!
