You don't even have to leave the property to have a good time. Just walk down the stairs to the ocean and swim, snorkel or hunt for sea glass all day then come up to your private villa grill out on the screened porch and have a cold Kalik (beer of the Bahamas) or a glass of wine on your private screened porch. Now we are even including a vehicle with a villa rental to make your say as care free as possible!
All you have to do is book your flights we will pick you up at Deadmans Airport (LGI). You will need to fly to Nassau to get tp Long Island.
There are so many things to keep busy and we know have swimming pigs, all you have to do is book an Echo tour. There are so many beaches to explore to look for sea glass or shells plus the most beautiful water you will ever see.

About Robin and Mike Smith
In 2011 we wanted to start planning our semi- retirement and thought it was going to be on a boat to cruise the Caribbean. After looking at the cost of a boats to cruise to the Bahamas we decided to look at property in the Bahamas. The first property we looked at was in Long Island and that was our last! We fell in love with this friendly, safe, beautiful island at first glance. After 3 years we feel blessed that we by far made the right decision. Then we meet with a few builders and chose Lauren Knowles, who is a father to the community and now like family to us. We started with just going to build a home for us but later decided we wanted to be able to share this amazing island with friends and family so that is how the Blue Lagoon Villa and the Pink Conch came in to play. Now the Blue Lagoon Villa is complete and our dream is a reality. We are so excited to meet you and help you enjoy your getaway to Bahama Dreamin!
Robin and Mike Smith purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Robin and Mike Smith chose Long Island
After touring Long Island we had to make a choice on where we wanted to build Bahama Dreamin Villas. We looked at the Leeward side of the island and the Windward side. We chose the windward side because of the elevation for the best view and the constant breeze. Even though we are from FL the breeze adds to the comfort of a tropical climate. We are so sre you will be amazed by the beautiful view that when you drive up the road to Bahama Dreamin and your first words aren't OMG we will buy your first nights dinner! You come once this will be somewhere you will want to visit again and again.
What makes this Villa unique
We have traveled to many places so we have tried to pin down all the fine details when building and furnishing the Blue Lagoon and the Pink Conch Villas. Each villa are 1 and 2 bedrooms and each bedroom has its own private bath. The living room and kitchen has everything you need to make your stay just like home with a full refrigerator, stove, microwave plus pots and pans, blender, mixer, toaster, dishes etc... If you don't want to cook there are many restaurants on the island close by or you can have a Bahamian meal cooked for your in your own Villa with fresh fish or lobster caught that day. The large screened in porch is where you will spend your evenings and on a calm night you will be glad to have the screened room that is like an extension of the family room. All rooms are air conditioned but we rarely need them since there is always a nice breeze.

Beautiful, peaceful location.
Thanks so much to Robin and Mike for creating a wonderful oasis perched up overlooking sea sculptures and the majestic ocean. Nothing was overlooked in the details of these villas which are definitely a home away from home on a wonderful island. Villas are clean, modern, and new! Can't say enough about Robin's graciousness and generosity. The villas are located a little south of mid island, and going north or south you will find a deserted beach. When one end of the island is cloudy, just drive to the other side! We always found sunshine.
Best fishing right outside the door! Cant wait to return.
Rebecca and Victor
So glad you go to spend time with your family with us and enjoyed all Long Island has to offer, especially for sharing the fruits of the sea !
We wait for your next visit because then you will be forever Bahama Dreamin :)
I can not imagine a more perfect spot and a better host... Robin made sure our every need was taken care of and her villas are so comfortable and beautiful! She arranged for a wonderful meal to be delivered to us on our first and last evenings. Boy, did that make for a carefree vacation! Having a car was fantastic, and we loaded it with a cooler, chairs, and snorkeling equipment (all provided!), and went off to adventure. We had great fun at Dean's Blue Hole, Gordon's Beach, the Columbus Monument, the marina and Max's. When we heard it was going to snow in Virginia, we were able to add an extra day to our stay. The week was just delightful, and we will definitely be repeat visitors!
We had the best time at Bahama Dreamin' ! And Long Island ! The place was lovely and so clean ! Robin has done a great job decorating, the outside screened in porch is a gem ! The view is crazy pretty! And it was so relaxing, very hard to leave !! Robin is the hostess with the mostess, she will spoil you ! The car was a great addition ! Beaches everywhere, great food everywhere, you just have to come ready for the experience! It's one you'll treasure! We will be back ! Robin and Mike are so easy to deal with, they give you the low down before you get there, and carry you through until you leave ! We've been going to the Southern Bahama Islands for many years, this is probably the easiest rental we've ever stayed at! There was never an issue, ever! In the Bahamas that's a high compliment, there are issues most times, not big, but... Not at Bahama Dreamin' uneventful, just the way we like it ! Been gone 1 day, miss it already !!
Stunning property, perfect getaway
From our first interaction to when Robin drove us to the airport, Robin and Mike were so friendly, helpful, and did everything possible to make sure we had a great vacation. The property is in a gorgeous setting, very comfortable, and beautifully put together. We loved sitting on the porch watching the sunrise each morning, exploring the cool rocks in front of the cottage, visiting a variety of stunning deserted beaches, taking the cave tour, and even taking a boat tour to meet swimming pigs (which Robin arranged for us!). Couldn't have asked for a better holiday getaway. Don't miss out on this secluded gem.
Nov-Dec on Long Island
We recently returned from a 10 day stay at Bahama Dreamin in Buckleys, Long Island. We have previously visited many of the 'Family Islands' but it was our first visit to Long. First things first, there is an absolutely gorgeous view looking out the front of the villas, stunning sunrises with dramatic offshore rock formations that add to photographic interest.
The hosts (Mike & Robin) could not have been more accommodating. We arrived on Thanksgiving day & were invited to join them and their friends for dinner. A truly generous and unexpected treat. Thanksgiving on a tropical island with great people & food. We made contacts that would serve us well through our time there. It was very handy to have the inside scoop on which beaches to visit, where to eat, what to see.
We ended up eating quite a few dinners at Max's Conch Bar which is only a mile or so away. Outstanding food (Hogfish Parmesan is to die for) & entertainment (Gary & Liz -Thanks to both of you for your insights as well). We also visited the Flying Fish marina in Clarence Town & had a few lunches there. Very good fish/lobster tacos. Lloyds Sports Bar in Dean's (home to the Blue Hole) on the main highway was an unexpected find, one of the better salads & light dinner fare that can be had. The beaches were a bit beat up from brushes with the prolific 2017 hurricane season. Gordon's beach at the south end of the island ended up being one of our favorites. Calm, clean & safe. There is a steady flow of tourist-type visitors, but never enough to make it feel crowded. There's also a 2+ mile long beach on the Atlantic side in Dunmore/Roses. Up north, one of the best was at the end of the road directly across from the Farmer's Market in Thompson Bay & there's also another lunch spot called Tiny's on Indian Hole Point. Farther north are the resorts, Stella Maris & Cape Santa Maria, with their restaurants & bars. We got to explore the entire length of the island due to two days of on & off rainy weather. All said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would not hesitate to return.
Robin was very helpful perfect central location the porch always had a nice breeze caught fish in front of the house had them for lunch snorkeling was wonderful.This island is very special its like going back to mayberry everyone on the island friendly and helpful gorgius secluded beaches no stoplights in eighty miles my wife and i have been to many islands and i always say i wont go back to an island i have been to before [like to find new places] this island and bahama dreamin i would go back too.
The Real Bahamas!
Long Island, a jewel of an island located in the archipelago crown of islands in The Bahamas. Stretching about 80 miles long and the widest point on the island is approximately 4 miles. 'Yuma' was the original name for Long Island given by the native Arawak Indians before it was renamed 'Fernandina' by Christopher Columbus in 1492.
The tropic of Cancer line runs through Long Island, making the atmosphere feel as if you are on another plane...another world.
Long Island is said to be the most beautiful, picturesque island of The Bahamas because of its symphony of dramatic contrasts. On the 'norside', which is really the eastern shore overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, there are cliffs, caves and crashing waves of indigo. On the opposite side, the western shore, it's calm, tranquil, turquoise and aquamarine shades of blue overlaps with flats, mangroves and baby powder sanded beaches as far as the eyes can see.
The deepest blue hole in the world, Dean's Blue Hole (600 ft), is located at Turtle Cove west of the capitol, Clarence Town. Many blue holes exist throughout the island in settlements namely, Mileys, Dunmore and Simms.
Numerous cave and tunnel systems cover the island. The historical cave system where the Lucayan Indian Tribe and their treasure artifacts, such as the ceremonial stools 'duhos' were found is located in Mortimer's. The treasure find was discovered by Long Island native Carlton Cartwright. Another cave system is located in Mileys and the historical Hamilton's Cave where hieroglyphics are still visible on the cave walls to this day.
Scattered throughout Long Island are many ruins of cotton plantations, churches and houses built in the 1700 & 1800's. Adderley Plantation is located 'down' in the north. 'Up' south lies the ruins of Dunmore Slave Plantation named for the former governor, Lord Dunmore, of The Bahamas. Canals, wells, and walls built by slaves can still be found throughout Long Island to this day.
Columbus Point where Columbus Landed there is a monument erected. Climb to the top and experience a breathtaking panoramic view of Long Island. Located at Cape Santa Maria where the beach there is ranked amongst the top 10 in the world.
The Twin Churches built by Father Jerome, or Monsignor John C. Hawes an architect, world famous, he was also a poet, philosopher and sculptor. He he was ordained as a Church of England priest 'Anglican' and came to Long Island where he built St. Paul's Anglican Church. He later converted to Catholicism, returned to Long Island and built St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church. Both churches are located in Clarence Town on opposite hillsides.
Long Island is home to many wonders, a natural treasure chest. Go exploring, have an adventure, you just never know what you may find. Bring your Water shoes, snorkel or dive gear and your fishing pole and you will be set for the most relaxing adventure of your life!
