This place is perfect for a family getaway. Flew from Nassau and stayed here with my wife and 2 sons. The boys loved it, and having the bar and restaurant on property made it fun for everyone. The marina is right next door and so also perfect for boaters and fishing charters.

Winter Haven aka "Rowdy Boys" has some of the best food on Long Island, recently dined on some native mutton, prepared by traditional recipe. It's better than KFC, because it's finger licking good. Beautiful view of the ocean and pool. A must visit!

On our first visit to the Bahamas, we chose to visit a variety of destinations, including Harbour Island/Eleuthera, Long Island, and Nassau (Atlantis). In late November, Long Island was recovering from Hurricane Joaquin and one could not miss the evidence. Visitors to southern Long Island need to be somewhat independent, as there is no regular local transportation system. We had... More

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
