Cindy and George know what it takes to have a great stay: a very functional and clean cottage and lots of towels (!). They are nearby and could respond to all our needs and questions. Thank you both for a very pleasant stay!

Lovely cottage in great location
We had 2 families come and 4 of our group of 10 stayed here and it was exactly what we wanted! Cute, very clean, cool, comfy beds, PERFECT location, lovely screened porch. George came over and welcomed us right away and checked in daily via email to see if we needed anything. Check in and check out was super easy. We were so thankful we were able to rent this house and would definitely recommend!!

Beyond our Expectations
From our first enquiry, to day of our departure, our experience with Whymmsical Wish Cottage was fantastic. The property is spacious, airy, bright, very well-equipped, private and very quiet. It is tough duty to walk a couple hundred feet through palm trees to get to a 2 mile+ sandy beach! George and Cindy are a wonderful, hospitable couple and live right next door. Nothing malfunctioned, but it was nice they were right here in case. George has bent over backward, from the moment we made first contact, to make our stay on Long Island one of our best vacations ever. And, he makes a heck of a pizza! We look forward to our next trip back to Whymms!

Excellent location. Clean, comfortable, and quiet accommodations. Most congenial and helpful host.
I highly recommend this property to anyone planning a visit to Long Island. George and Cindy are amazing hosts. They are great in helping you plan your stay and are very knowledgeable about all aspects of the island.They are fun to be around and make you feel so comfortable staying in their wonderful accommodations that it is hard to leave. The property is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Good, snorkeling, kayaking, and bonefishing are just a few steps away. The accommodations are very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We can't wait to go back!

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”!

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.

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.

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!

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!
