Perfection In Design On Long Island Bahamas

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely perfect. Carol did a superb job designing and equipping the house. We couldn't think of anything that she could add to the home. Very well equipped.

On short notice I informed her that we would be getting married at this house. The house was perfect for the event. We had very little planned so for our wedding dinner she put us in contact with Ursula who came in and cooked 6 of us dinner from scratch. It far exceeded our expectations and was very affordable. Do not miss her Coconut Tart.

If you are a cook the kitchen is a dream to work in and all the appliances are top of the line. There is also a grill on the back patio. I cooked all our breakfasts and lunches and it was fun.

The view in the backyard was beautiful. Go kayaking or walk on the beach. If you get too take a quick dip in the pool or cool off with on outdoor shower as there is one on the beach and one on each side of the house.

I can't say enough good things about On A Whymm. If you are considering a stay here just do it and you won't have any regrets.

Thank you so much Carol.

My family and I returned from a week at on-a-whymm. This is a beautiful, well designed home. Every detail is covered! The furnishings are beautiful, plush bedding, soft towels, well designed kitchen! Carol was available for questions before & during our trip- but her resource guide has it all, including names of owners & stops to make along the way. The view and peaceful environment of this home was exactly what my family needed. Everyday we had a fun adventure!! From the simple trip out the back door for shell hunting, playing in the sand, enjoying the amazing waters- to checking out the untouched beauty of this island! We enjoyed a fishing adventure with freshly caught lobster & conch for lunch; gourmet dinners prepared in the kitchen while we enjoyed the outdoors- memories my family will cherish forever. We highly recommend on-a-whymm!!

Not your typical Caribbean beach house.

On-A-Whymm was exactly as described, and the location, and layout were perfect for a relaxing vacation. The property was clean and well maintained and we were greeted with a smile. No detail was overlooked in designing and decorating this home. I especially enjoyed the view from the back porch across the pool with the beautiful blue Caribbean waters as a backdrop. Be sure to check out the local attractions: Cape Santa Maria, Columbus Point, Deans Blue Hole, and stop by the Outer Edge Grill at the Flying Fish Marina. I would highly recommend this property.

Perfect family vacation at 'on-a-whymm'

Perfect family vacation at 'on-a-whymm'

My family and I recently stayed 2 weeks at 'on-a-Whymm' and it exceeded expectations in every way. The house/yard/pool/beach were absolutely immaculate and everything was very well maintained. Carol's attention to detail is quite impressive to say the least. Our kids loved the calm, warm waters out front and playing in the pool. The first week we toured all over the beautiful island and enjoyed all the sites and always had good meals at any of the restaurants we tried (Our favorite was lunch and the moonshine bar at Stella Maris so the kids could snorkel and swim at the rock pool while we relaxed at the bar and enjoyed the amazing views). The second week of our vacation we just found the 'on-a-whymm' villa too nice to leave and we mainly just stayed close to home. The private chef meals also come highly recommended.

We used the boat for snorkeling excursions and did lots of fishing. The snorkeling off of the small islands in the bay was fantastic (easily accessible with the boat) and the fishing was great. We caught lots of snapper for the odd meal and the barracuda provided some additional entertainment on light tackle. My son who is 13 also caught a bonefish right out front on the villa on his fly rod. We also seen dolphins one day from the boat as well.

I can't say enough about Long Island - the local people were very friendly and would go out of there way to help. Carol provides recommendations for car rentals, tour guides, groceries, restaurants, beaches, etc. and everything we did based on those recommendations seemed to always exceed our expectations. With my only previous Caribbean experience being from a cruise ship and being hounded at ever port like vultures I can now truly see what the draw to this area is for people wanting a vacation of a lifetime.

I would return with my family and would recommend this rental property to anyone without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Russell and Kim,

There are really just two words to describe the house and the experience at On-A-Whymm. Just perfect. We travel several times a year all over the world. Although we always try to find the more "out of the way" spots, we still like to be spoiled and have stayed at many of the most luxurious resorts in the world. Staying at On-A-Whymm was like having your own little luxury resort and your home all wrapped up in one. One of our favorite spots is the St. Regis in Punta MIta and as strange as it sounds, we felt like we had our own private St. Regis. The only difference was my husband was the bartender. The feeling I had the first morning waking up and looking out the sliders at the beautiful flowers, the pool and the ocean is indescribable.

The house had every imaginable convenience. It just felt like home. The house was missing nothing. The kitchen was fabulous and we had a wonderful local chef cook for us a night. The kids are still talking about her coconut cake.

Carol was so helpful getting us up to speed on everything before we arrived, so we could just relax and enjoy when we got there.

If you enjoy remote, out of the way spots, you cannot go wrong with On-A-Whymm. With all the places we have travelled it is our new favorite and we hope to be back very soon!

The ultimate beach vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at On-A-Whymm for 2 weeks in July of 2012. After a year that posed many challenges for our family, including a total loss house fire, we were in dire need of a special and relaxing vacation for us to reconnect. Although Carol does not typically welcome young children, after several lovely email exchanges, she felt comfortable opening her home to my husband, myself, our daughter (then age 7) and our son (then age 9). I can honestly say, this was THE BEST family vacation we ever had and will forever be the standard to top. Everything was easy and worry-free from the my first contact with Carol; from the initial planning stages, to making sure the house was well stocked upon arrival, to ensuring we were well aquainted with the island sights and amentities, she made sure every possible detail was covered. This same attention to detail is seen throughout the house, garden, pool and beach area; it is relaxed luxury epitomized. The thing we loved about Long Island is the laid back pace and lack of glitsy tourism; the island has almost a rustic, back in time feel, but On-A-Whymm has every modern amenity you could desire. The vacation was the perfect balance of seclusion and luxury.
As others have noted, if you are looking for a trip with active nightlife, restaurants and shopping, I would be inclined to steer you elsewhere. But, if you are looking for the ultimate, well appointed, enjoy natural island beauty vacation, then this is THE trip to take. We spent hours relaxing on the beach right outside the home, but also explored the island; including the Columbus monument, Santa Maria beach, the Long Island Museum, 2 trips to Dean's Blue Hole and I think every little small beach we could find on the island. Many are totally off the map and we were often the only people there! Where else can you experience that! Amazing! And don't forget to stop for conch salad at Max's after a long day of beach combing. A must! The shell hunting in general was the best I have ever encountered; we came home with a collection second to none! We had Ursula cook an amazing dinner for us one evening; an experience in Bahamian culture and food and a glimpse of gastro-heaven. I would highly recommend! We also scheduled a fishing/lobster spearing/conch trip with her husband, Ken, which was incredible! We came back with more fresh fish, conch and lobster than we could eat! If you decide to visit On-A-Whymm, your only regret will be that you have to leave. Thanks, Carol!

Activity and Interests

Long Island is located 165 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas. Daily

flights are available. Flight time is approximately 45 minutes. 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. Long Island

stretches over 75 miles, with many small settlements along Queens

Highway. The scenery from the highway changes from old buildings

surrounded by stone walls, to beautiful beaches with calm blue

water. One can spend the day on a remote beach with complete

privacy, or tour the island and shop for pottery, woven goods, or

fresh fruit. Go to lunch at an authentic island conch bar serving

fresh fish, conch, and lobster. Take the time to meet the locals,

becoming one with the island.
