While we didn't stay at Winter Haven, we ate many meals in the Rowdy Boys Restaurant. In a word: Fantastic! My wife and I are big fans of fresh seafood, and in particular, conch. One memorable dinner was the Rowdy Boys conch burger. A fresh baked bun, literally overflowing with conch, lettuce and tomato, and a plateful of seasoned fries.... More

We didn't stay at the inn but enjoyed two delicious meals at Rowdys. Fresh fish was great and traditional Bahamian conch fritters and fried conch excellent. Nice salads and delicious homemade desserts also.

We ate here a few times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So that should tell you the food was great. Full bar, they can make whatever drinks you want. Great spot to see locals and tourists. Great view of the ocean.

We had a fantastic stay at Winter Haven. We had bought/won our 2 night stay at a fund raiser silent auction held on Staniel Cay. We arrived and were welcomed by the friendly "Rowdy Boy"proprietor, Bernard. We had met his brother Barry, & Ben over on Staniel. By the time we left today, we felt like we were one of... More

We had dinner at Rowdy Boys our first night on Long Island and breakfast a week later. Cracked conch, fish fingers (grouper), omelet, and stewed snapper. The stewed fish was not on the menu but it is common in the Bahamas so I asked and they prepared it. The service is good and they are one of the few places... More

Although we haven't stayed at Winter Haven (as we've been on a boat), we've been frequenting the nearby Flying Fish Marina for years and we always visit Chloe and family at Winter Haven, and always eat at least a few delicious meals at Rowdy Boys. (It's a great place for cocktails and cold Kaliks, too!) The Knowles family are warm,... More

Winter Haven is a complex of sixteen cottage type units. All very private and very clean, comfortable, roomy and modern. The view is astounding from the large porches and it is very quiet. There is a private pool and jacuzzi facing the beach. The Knowles family will make you think you are at a best friends home with all the... More

If you are looking for a place that typifies life in the family islands of the Bahamas this is the place to stay, clean, bright and very friendly. As with the family islands though, don't expect much. At the current time there are 8 rooms in two buildings, two up, two down and it seems another building, not as close... More

I stayed here for a week in January 2013. The rooms were really big and clean, the bed was comfortable and i agree with the other positive comments. The best part of the stay, aside from the whirlpool on the pool deck overlooking the ocean, was the hospitality of everyone at the place. You are treated like family. Chloe even... More
