What makes this cottage unique

Amazing breathtaking views right on the water. Beautiful sunsets, Your home away from home

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a fabulous time at Baywatch Cottage. The location is so scenic, and accessible to some fantastic beaches on the Atlantic side of the island, Hillside Grocery, and each tip of the island is a pretty easy drive from the house.

Phil met us at the airport and gave us a full overview of the house, then left us to our own private world. We cooked several meals and made good use of the grill at the house. My favorite restaurant was The Forest, while my wife favored Chez Pierre's establishment.

Long Island had so much beauty that some of the other family islands do not, especially the elevation on the Atlantic.

Thank you for all your help in making this vacation hassle-free and a wonderful memory for the two of us.

Amazing property that exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our wonderful stay at Bay Watch Cottage. The property was everything we could have hoped for and more. Lovely interior and décor, all the necessary amenities and a knockout view of the bay and the privacy of our own little cove and dock to watch sunsets, have morning coffee and swim from.

Owners were welcoming and wonderful and nearby for assistance if needed, was terrific for all info about the island.

Property is really nicely located very near a well-stocked market that had pretty much everything you needed, a convenient liquor store, gas station nearby and a farmer's market on Saturday mornings. Also, the location on the property is in the middle of the island so it was easy to get to the North part of the island as well as head South.

Great restaurant about 5 miles from the cottage in Chez Pierre. Cross between French, Italian and a dash of Caribbean thrown in. You HAVE to make reservations and Don't show up late (or too early). Cape Santa Maria resort was also a nice stop for a meal and we were able to use the beach there as well. Gorgeous beach, stunning with warm, amazing blue water and sand that feels like baby powder on your toes.

Dean's Blue Hole is a must see. Great place for snorkeling, especially around the perimeter of the blue hole where the ledge is.

The island is an outer island so it is remote and doesn't have a real center, but if you are in the mode of adventure, beautiful seascapes, secluded beaches that you can have all to yourself, wonderful snorkeling, and a lot of rest and relaxing, this property and island is the right fit.

But most of all, the people of Long Island are truly wonderful, gracious and genuine people. The island is safe, welcoming and everyone is friendly and helpful. Have been to many other islands where the islanders are nice to you to your face, but then you get the feeling they are talking about you behind your back. Not the case on Long Island. Never a worry for safety and again, the people were lovely--with no exceptions.

Lastly, don't forget to bring your bug spray. You will need it for sure!

Outstanding Home and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home was in excellent condition and very well appointed. The location is on the sheltered side of the island with a small private beach, which is a great spot for relaxing in the afternoon. There are several beaches on the offshore islands that can be reached by kayak. The home is very close to the Atlantic beaches, a grocery store and a liquor store as well.

The hosts were excellent, even going so far as to repeatedly follow up with the local airline which mis-directed our luggage and bring it to us when it arrived. Their help was invaluable in getting our vacation back on track.

We can't recommend this home enough for your stay on LI.

Charming cottage on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth trip to Long Island but our first stay at Baywatch Cottage. Long Island is a beautiful place, very special, and this cottage is a great gateway to the island. Its location is terrific: it's just 1/4 mile from the best grocery on the island and maybe 1/2 island from the farmer's market (open on Saturday mornings). Despite this convenient location, it's very private and out of the way. The cottage is new and well appointed. It faces Salt Pond Bay, which is westward, so you can watch the sunset every night. The helpful owner Phil lives on the property but up the hill and behind a lot of trees. If you need him, he's there; if you don't need him, he's not.

You can't go wrong with Baywatch Cottage.

We had such a wonderful time! The cabin was perfect and Phil was so helpful with getting us acclimated to the island. Phil greeted us at the airport which was much appreciated since it was our first time. We highly recommend staying at baywatch and we plan on returning again. This has been the best trip and the most beautiful island in the world! Thanks for everything!

Laura and Steve here from Ontario, Canada.

We are well seasoned travellers to the Caribbean, having spent the last 25+ years doing so...with ten years as owners of a beach house in Barbados. So...we know what to expect in the tropics.

I booked this holiday as a gift to my wife who had just retired from a career in teaching and also turned 60 (sorry Laura...part of the story).

I was looking for a laid back vacation to relax and watch the sea...swim...walk in the sand, etc.

Bay Watch cottage exceeded my expectations by miles, as did Long Island.

The cottage was fabulous. Decorated in a way that my wife was still talking about it the day we were leaving...everything was absolutely perfect.

Our host Phil...(Debbie unfortunately was out of the island) did an amazing job and we had a few 'one-zies' here and there through the week together. He recommended a few spots of interest, and we hit those we could. Beach at Cape Santa Maria is absolutely perfect, a must to those who go.

We had a fabulous time at Bay Watch and will be back...hopefully through the winter of 2016...will bring my cocktail shaker again Phil...:)

Many thanks again...

All the best through the new year and good health through 2016 and beyond...

Laura & Steve
