Long Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Full bath, 2 private outdoor showers & 2 pwdr rooms

There are 3 rental options - Main House only, Main House + Master Pod or Entire House. Rates shown are only for the Main House only with a queen bed. Email us for rates on other options. Our vacation home is located on Long Island in the Bahamas. Here you can get away from it all. Fully furnished home comprised of 3 buildings all interconnected by open bridges and a central sun deck provide a unique and fun layout with various rental options. The master bathroom has an outside private exterior shower as well the home has a unique private outdoor shower which can be used by any of the units. Each building has a powder room with vanity and toilet. The home is just steps away from the beachfront. Beautiful sunsets over the water and sunrise views over the hills. Long Island is one of the most unique islands in the Bahamas. For many people, it is considered the hidden Bahamas. On the northern tip there are dramatic sea cliffs overlooking the dark blue water where Columbus anchored the Santa Maria when he discovered the island in 1492. In his ship’s log, an entry mentions taking on fresh water, trading with the natives, and notes that this was the most beautiful island he had ever seen. The beaches are incredible. Talcum-powder fine white sand and crushed pink and brown shell cover some of the most stunning beaches in the Bahamas. The water is clear, warm, and turquoise blue. From hillside perches, where cool trade winds blow, you can look down to stretches of spectacular coast and water so pristine you can see multiple shades of blue in the depths of the ocean. Yet this island has much more to offer than its natural beauty; it is safe, easily accessible by air, close to the United States, and home to friendly English-speaking locals.

Pure Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five have just returned from a bliss-filled week on Long Island, Bahamas. We have visited our favorite island destination a dozen times or so over the past fifteen years and have rented a number of different accommodations in various locations. All have had their pluses and a few minuses, but Flip-Flopping' ticked all the boxes. Its unique layout fit all our needs. With its three separate units connected by bridges, everyone had their own personal space. The main house has two futons for additional sleeping; so it is ideal for three couples or a family of six to eight. The kitchen is more than functional, and the porches perfect for relaxing with a panoramic view of the secluded "bush" setting. There is a toilet and lavatory in each unit. One unit has an indoor shower, another has a unique cantilevered outdoor shower off the bathroom, and there is a large outdoor shower downstairs. Taking a warm winter night shower under the myriad of stars above is a surreal experience. There is a mid-level patio with four lounge chairs , perfect for sunbathing. All areas of the accommodation were well-cleaned, and the decor was tropically beautiful (and I do mean beautiful ... kudos to the decorator!) Cheryl is a most friendly and helpful manager in every step of the rental process.

The home is not beach front. There is a partial ocean view from the top floor porch. It is, however, only an easy five minute walk to a white powder beach with Long Island's trade mark aquamarine hued waters. You will need to rent a car as the nearest grocery store is a fifteen minute drive south. Chez Pierre is the nearest restaurant which is a similar drive away. Besides, you will want to venture out and about to find your own favorite beach on the island and visit the island's other attractions. We would whole-heartedly recommend Flip-Flopping"!

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house only steps away from a beautiful, private beach. Comfortable and peaceful only begin to describe this little slice of heaven on earth. The homeowners are wonderful - very accommodating. The island is a delight - not "touristy" at all. The beaches are breathtaking and the natives are lovely people. I can't wait for my return visit!

What a wonderful home this is! We had such a great time exploring beach after beach, each more beautiful than the last! The locals are so very kind and we made friendships that will last a lifetime. Afternoons were spent rocking on the porch after a day at the beach where the water was the most amazing blues. Evenings were spent lying on the deck watching the stars or out for drinks and dancing. What a beautiful home, with everything so well thought out. It had all the comforts! Everything was so perfect from the moment we arrived! It was very hard to leave such a paradise, but be sure that we will be returning soon!!!!

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

We have been so lucky to have been able to experience this beautiful place three times in the last 5 years and every time we do there are so many wonderful new touches to the place. The owners have done a remarkable job on making this place so comfortable and enjoyable. There were 7 of us in our party and it accommodated us perfectly! The beach is so close and the people on the island are the sweetest! It's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives and to experience a place that is far from all of that. We had a 50th birthday party for a special friend in our group at Deal's and what a time we had!!! We can not wait to get back there.
