Perfect place to getaway from it all!!!!
Our second time staying at Palmirage and we can't wait to go again next year. From the warm, clean and comforting welcome until our final good-byes, it was nothing short of a perfect vacation. Talk about easy too! Sara had everything ready for us including our rental car waiting for us at the airport. Any of the many, beautiful beaches were only a short drive away and easy to find and get to. A short, fun walk from the Boat House to a pristine, sandy beach with clear, blue, shallow waters that you can walk through. Caught a glimpse of quite a bit of sea life without even trying! Mornings and evenings were a restful respite on the deck with breakfast or dinner and an incredible over the canopy view of the greenery of Long Island. Several stops on Long Island are available to immerse yourself in the local culture of both the present and the past. I cannot gush enough about Palmirage!!!

We just got back from a fantastic visit to Long Island, Bahamas and highly recommend staying at Palmirage
We just got back from a fantastic visit to Long Island, Bahamas and highly recommend staying at Palmirage, The Boat House, owned by Sarah and Dan Werra. The charming boat house is spacious and comfortable, with a full kitchen, bath with a walk-in shower, laundry facilities down stairs and a beckoning view of ocean. Walk out onto to the balcony for sun, a breeze and gorgeous view. Surrounded by trees, I felt like I was staying in a tree house. At night, enjoy the stars like you have never seen them before. Bikes are available and I relished my daily short ride to the beach, where the water is the beautiful turquoise color of dreams. Walk in either direction on a sandy beach, for miles if you feel like it or sit in a beach chair and soak up the sun. I swam for hours in the lightly salted ocean and removed my beach shoes to feel the sandy bottom beneath my happy toes. This is a great island to do as much or little as you like. Mike had an amazing time fly fishing. He learned a lot, from his guide Dwayne Knowles, who was really reasonable. After the first day of fishing, he came back raving how “it was crazy, there were herds of them”. You can drive to experience the many lovely beaches and sites or enjoy the superb beach just a ways from the Palmirage Boat House. We highly recommend eating at Tiny’s Beach Bar, run by Michele and Jason. We enjoyed the freshly caught fish and delicious Key Lime pie, but there were lots of good selections from which to choose. We were warmly welcomed by Dan and Sarah and immediately made to feel at home. The locals and winter residents were also welcoming and friendly. This is a place and experience you will want to enjoy each year, creating and recreating lasting memories. Thank you, Sarah and Dan, for a wonderful visit!

Absoulutely Fabulous!
We loved the location of Sara & Dan's place~very central and easy to get to both sides of the island. Also, not even 5 minutes down the road is your own private beach in a wonderful cove. They had 2 kayaks to use, which really was nice to paddle around and go explore a few nearby islands! And Sara & Dan's place had everything you didn't know you were going to need!!! They have done an incredible job stocking their rental with all the cooking items you would need and the grill was fabulous to cook outside on with your fresh fish! We loved the outdoor shower and the patio area, especially to watch the surnrises and sunsets! Being up high above the jungle was spectacular!

Above the tree top paradise!
The Boathouse @ Palmirage is just one of the many treasures to discover when visiting Long Island, Bahamas. It's a fully modern, 2 bedroom apt that sits above the tree tops offering amazing views and always a welcoming breeze. The covered upper deck is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or your Happy Hour retreat. And the sunsets are spectacular. Down below is a hammock perfect for those afternoon siestas You are just a short walk to the beach where you will find the clear blue waters of the Caribbean. Access to beach chairs, kayaks, and lots of sunshine make for a picture perfect beach day. This is our second stay at the Boathouse but it will not be our last. We rent a car to explore the Island and find the location is great. Close to all the amenities...groceries, liquor, and restaurants. Sara and Dan are wonderful hosts and are a wealth of information. They have literally thought of everything to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Long Island is a gem of the Bahamas and the Boathouse at Palmirage is an excellent place to stay while you vacation. We'll definitely be back. Thanx Sara and Dan.

Amazing and well provisioned
The Palmirage is amazing. We stayed in the boat house. Loved the fact it was on the second story so we had a great view of the island and water. The boathouse is 2 bedroom which worked great for a girls getaway. It is well provisioned. Sara is a great to work with and made the whole booking and stay professional simple. A beautiful beach is walking distance...a short walk.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Palmirage is located in a quiet neighborhood, a 5 minute walk to Sunset Beach. This is on the Leeward side of the island, with gentle breezes and shallow waters. We have use of a beach front area where you will find your beach chairs and the kayaks for your use. A great spot to watch the sunset. A short drive to the East will lead to deserted beaches and miles of walking for shells. Located at the top third of the island, Wemyss is a great home base for exploring the 80 miles of Long Island. Driving less than an hour North or South will take you to historical sites, famous beaches, roadside Conch Bars, grocery stores, beverage depots, or simply more deserted stretches of sand and sea.
Getting around
While Taxi and Tour services are available on Long Island, a car is recommended to see all we have to offer, at your own pace. You can drive to the famous Dean's Blue Hole or the beach voted one of the 10 best in the Caribbean by Island Magazine, Cape Santa Maria. The rental is equipped with a full kitchen, but with a car you can experience the dining and cocktailing delights available on Long Island, and meet some of the locals.
Access
Car advised

Stella Maris Air flies on by-the-seat charter, times can be more flexible for later departures out of Nassau, at rates that are competitive and allow you to skip a night in Nassau!
