Some Reviews

Heavenly isolation of long island enhanced and enabled by George and Cindy's hosting

This was our second trip to Long Island - last time we stayed in the south. We love it because it is so quiet, simple and untouched - every day we take our kids to a new, different and completely deserted beach! Our expectations were therefore high for this trip but the Whyms location in the middle of the island on the Caribbean/leeward side and George and Cindy's welcome and comfortable cottage easily exceeded those expectations. The cottage is in site of and a short walk from the beach and is well equipped and comfortable. George's discrete but always available hosting from his nearby home really supplemented our stay - he kindly did a grocery shop in advance of our arrival, he recommended car hire and restaurants, he gave us daily weather and beach suggestions, he sorted out our flight changes on departure and he even conjured up candles for my wife's birthday cake! Thank you George and Cindy for a wonderful stay - we all loved it, Jamie, Sarah, Tessa (6) and Charlie (4). We will be returning for sure.

An Excellent Experience, Good House, Good Host

Our family of four had an exceptional experience with George and Cindy and their home on the bay at Wymms. Ordinarily, you would not select a vacation house to rent based on its owners. But in this case, you should. We were first time travelers to Long Island with our two boys, aged 14 and 17. Our family has traveled to many places in different parts of the world and water based trips remain the long time favorites. We cannot say enough good things about our seven days in Long Island, snorkeling, bone fishing, reef fishing and just generally wandering to the wide open expanses of blue water. What made it special was George and Cindy’s house. We stayed in the four bedroom house and it was clean from top to bottom and very functional. Great kitchen and being able to eat every night on the screened porch was very enjoyable for our family. If you are into stars at night, this is the place. We woke up every morning to a great sky and a higher degree of quiet that you cannot get at home. A few steps away from the house is a relatively secluded beach that wraps around a gorgeous bay. You can walk the whole bay tip to tip and watch the waves come in. Several nights we ate fresh fish and lobster from a local market and two nights we ate fish that we caught with our boys. Water to table is a quick trip in Long Island. During our stay, we rented a car with the great help of George. It allowed us to explore road after road, countless beaches and some great roadside restaurants where the locals eat. George provided us with lists of snorkeling spots, restaurants and fishing locations. We packed the car with fishing gear, snorkeling equipment and just set out for the day. Unlike a lot of houses that we have rented, George enjoys getting to know the people that visit and will do whatever he can to ensure that you are able find the things that make you happy on Long Island. On two different occasions, I mentioned to him that our boys wanted to fish the reef and do some exploring. A few hours later George called and had found a great day trip for us to do some fishing off shore and snorkeling. If he offers, take George up on getting your first night’s provisions. When we arrived, we had dinner and a fresh cold beer waiting for us in the fridge. There is plenty of good fishing all around Long Island. It is a mystifying place to visit. As we poked around the whole island, we explored from one end to the other, we saw a lot of houses, but really did not see any that we would trade for staying where we did. Honestly, we hated to leave Long Island which is a measure of a good trip but we really hated to leave George and Cindy. They are great people personally and you will enjoy their home.

More than I hoped it would be !!!

Our stay at Whymsical Wish was exactly what we needed. The location of the cabins are ideal for exploring the whole island being that they were in a central location. George, the owner, was the perfect host. Giving us all the information we needed but not smothering us. He made our stay amazing. We had an incredible time exploring all the island had to offer. From unbelievably gorgeous beaches, to amazing snorkeling locations and delicious fresh seafood long island had it all. We had the beaches to ourselves, only Dean's Blue Hole was "busy" with up to five other people at a time. Which is understandable because the view was incredible. It is definitely a must see!! We went snorkeling around and over the blue hole and saw tons of amazing fish and shells. Our overall stay on the island was incredible.

Beautiful Island with friendly people

We spent three weeks in the four bedroom cottage with six people and had an amazing vacation. You couldn't find a more gracious host and hostess than George and Cindy. They were accommodating to all our needs and requests and as the Whymsical Wish card states " arrive as a guest , leave as a friend" . The cottage was clean, comfortable and roomy . "Our" beach was strikingly beautiful and we spent tIme fishing, swimming, kayaking , beach combing, exploring and watching incredible sunsets right in our own " front yard". All of our explorations to other parts of the island were fantastic, by land and by sea .

Wonderful family vacation on a beautiful beach!

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing two week stay at Whymmsical Wish. The photos are accurate but they truly don't show the real beauty of the property and the beach. THE BEACH IS AMAZING! It is 2 1/2 miles long with the most amazing Caribbean blue water. There are NO crowds. We were usually the only people on the beach. The duplex was spacious and airy. The screened in porches were our favourite part of the house to hang out, read books and eat meals. The owner, George, was always available to answer our questions and gave us great recommendations for restaurants (Seaside Village! They have a bar right on the water and Kenny, the owner, pulls the conch right out of the ocean to prepare your conch salad right in front of you). We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property. We are already planning our next trip back and will stay here again!

great choice for beach vacation

My husband and I spent a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable 9 days at the cottage . We look for locations that are out- of- the- way, quiet, restful, and beautiful, and this certainly was one of those. We had convenient access to a private beach where we spent alot of time walking or running, exploring, and where we went kayaking one afternoon. The cottage was clean, well equipped, comfortable,and the grounds well maintained. Our host, George, made us feel very welcome and was attentive to anything we might need. We enjoyed attending the local Saturday morning Farmers Market and prepared most of our own meals , but enjoyed eating lunch at a couple of great restaurants on the island: the Cape Santa Maria Resort restaurant at the northern end of the island, and the Outer Edge Grill at the marina in Clarence Town. We definitely recommend this property to anyone that wants a a restful break from the frenzy of civilization

The Reef at Whymsical Wish

This small coral reef is located just 200 feet from our beach ! Hundreds of colorful fish to see in shallow water !
