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

I just stayed here for three days and was delighted with the accommodation, view, great friendly service and helpfulness of all the staff. If you go to Long Island, stay here!!

This is the second time I've stayed at Winter Haven and the hospitality and accommodating atmosphere only gets better. The food is unquestionably the finest on the south end of the island and my fiancee says Chloe's coleslaw is the best in the world...period. I personally love her cracked conch, fritters, lobster and snapper and can eat it until the... More

We just got back from a week on Long Island, we stayed at Winter Haven Inn and rented our vehicle from them. The room was large, clean and comfortable. We had a beautiful view from the back deck, we actually left our door open each night to bring in the ocean breeze and hear the waves. We never needed the... More

I can't let that last review stand. We booked 8 nights at Winter Haven starting 11/22. I was worried after reading this review in the airport on our way to Long Island. After 7 nights with no problems and having met the entire family that runs Winter Haven I asked about the event described in Stay Away review. According to... More

Arrived here with great expectations after reading the reviews. Paid a premium compared to other available accommodation. First day, I was negotiating the cost of a rental vehicle only to be called a "[...]" by one of the Rowdy boys themselves. While he had never actually met a Jew he explained it merely referred to someone who would negotiate you... More

Don't be misled by the title, the fish fingers in question are home made by Chlo, using freshly caught grouper and would put Birds Eye out of business any day This is a small but very friendly hotel to stay at, all the staff are very helpful and friendly, they pick you up from the airport at no charge and,...
