Description of the Wemsyss vacation cottage rental
Curl up in the Hammock with a cold drink and a book. Take your fishing pole out to the bight and catch your dinner, then bring it back to the fish cleaning station and BBQ an evening of fresh seafood. Or ask us to get some fresh fish for you and have it prepared while you just relax. Kayak out to the nearby Cays for a morning of snorkeling. Or just pull up a beach chair and enjoy the water.
Long Island is one of the most unique islands in the Bahamas. For many people, it is considered the hidden Bahamas. On the northern tip there are dramatic sea cliffs overlooking the dark blue water where Columbus anchored the Santa Maria when he discovered the island in 1492. The beaches are incredible. Talcum-powder fine white sand and crushed pink and brown shell cover some of the most stunning beaches in the Bahamas. The water is clear, warm, and turquoise blue. From hillside perches, where cool trade winds blow, you can look down to stretches of spectacular coast and water so pristine you can see multiple shades of blue in the depths of the ocean. Yet this island has much more to offer than its natural beauty; it is safe, easily accessible by air, close to the United States, and home to friendly English-speaking locals.
If you have any special requests please let us know. If you need some groceries, beer, liquor or soda we'd be happy to pick that up for you so it will be ready upon arrival...nothing like a nice cold drink after a day of travelling.
Same thing with arrangements for Rental Cars, Fishing guides, restaurants..whatever !!! We are here to take the mystery out of Long Island so you can have a stress-free stay and pack in as much fun as possible while you are here.
Veggie Garden is going strong! Help yourself to whatever is ripe today!! Zucchini, Tomatoes, Peppers, Lettuce, Radishes and Cucumbers are plentiful!! Kale, Broccoli Rab, Carrots, Tomatillos and Eggplant soon to come!
Don't miss the opportunity to explore Long Island, which is the most attractive of all the Bahamas out islands, with quaint settlements dotted between gentle rolling hills. Here nature is still unspoiled. Historical sites remind us of the interesting past and where people are amongst the friendliest in the Bahamas. This is the perfect spot for a Bahamas vacation of a lifetime!

Exceeded my expectations
Left on 10/22/2012 for a stay in October 2012
I just spent a week at the cottage @ Palmirage and have nothing but positive things to say! The owners Dan and Sara made sure that we had everything we needed. They even went grocery shopping for us because we arrived on the island on a Sunday when all the stores were closed. Sara was also very helpful in arranging a car rental as well.
The cottage and grounds were immaculately kept and there was nothing we needed that wasn't already there, they truly have thought of everything! We had friends staying at another location 5 minutes down the road and they had to check out after 3 days because they were getting eaten alive by bugs infiltrating their living space, we did not have any such problem and were very thankful for it.
If you are looking for a great place to stay while on Long Island, look no further!

We Will Return!
Left on 02/09/2012 for a stay in December 2011
Our hosts Sara and Dan were most gracious and welcoming. The cottage is tucked in a quiet and tropical setting that is well kept and inviting. Our accommodations were very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equiped, and a washer and dryer in the unit was very convenient. Sara and Dan are very familiar with the Islands attractions and can assist with planning your adventure by providing suggestions and guidance.
We were within a short walking distance to the beach, where we felt as if it was our very own private paradise. You can walk for hours without seeing another person - where else would that be possible?
I would highly encourage everyone to experience the quiet beauty of this island - it was beyond our expectations and we plan return again soon!

Comfortable and friendly (OK, it's not a sentence, but it's what
Left on 01/11/2012 for a stay in September 2008
We've stayed at The Cottage at Palmirage and would love to again.
The accommodations are funky and fabulous...everything you need for a most relaxing time. You're only steps to a most fabulous beach, but there is total relaxation right out front, too. Shops are convenient, as are restaurants and bars, if you don't feel like cooking in the wonderful kitchen. Your hosts, Sara and Dan, are very accommodating and do all they can to make your stay a real visit to Paradise!

About:My husband and I found this perfect island in the Bahamas while sailing on our catamaran. We built our home and the Cottage ourselves over 3 summers, while living on our boat anchored off the beach. After 12 years living aboard we now spend most of our year here in Long Island, and work summers in...
