“Great hosts, great snorkeling, awesome value!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

If you enjoy a peaceful, beachy location, this is IT. The hosts, Jeanie & Kris are warm and delightful. They'll give you everything you need to have a fantastic vacation...from kayaks to snorkeling gear, restaurant recommendations to car rental, they know it all.

Pros: Central local w/ocean views (on the Caribbean side), great communication with the host. Room has a small fridge, coffee maker, microwave, lots of utensils and toaster. Beach towels provided. Grocery store very close. Grill and new outdoor kitchen (right outside room). Kris allowed us to use his cooler to take with us on our day trips. Perfect for drinks and snacks.

Cons: NONE

Tips: You will probably need a car for your entire stay. The north and south ends of the island are a 30-45 min drive and well worth it. Bring the bug spray. Grotto Bay isn't bad, but Cape Santa Maria (north end of the island) seemed to have more sand fleas than anywhere else, AND they have the best sand so you'll wanna stay for a few hours.

Can't say enough about this place. This was our first time to the Bahamas. We didn't know which island to visit first(there are so many to choose from) and feel so fortunate to have found Long Island and Grotto Bay. It's a 50ish min flight to LI from Nassau. Can't wait to go back and bring the family!
