“Beautiful Island with friendly people”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

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 .

“An Island Eden”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The cottage is amazing. 300 feet from a 2.5 mile beach that's mostly deserted. George could not have been more helpful, assisting us to change our airline reservations, steering us to restaurants off the beaten track, telling us how he built the three houses in his compound, and arranging a car rental (and must on the island).
The beds are comfortable, the kitchen VERY well-equipped (with even baking pans!). The house was clean and had a wonderful ease and comfort. Long Island is beautiful and funky, with drop-dead beaches and goats and chickens along the one central road.

Perfect for travelers with a sense of adventure and a willingness to experience what the island has to offer.

We will be back.

“Would stay again in a heartbeat!!”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed a week in the two bedroom cottage in June. It is cute, clean, well equipped, great location and quite a bargain! If we are ever fortunate enough to travel to Long Island again we would stay here in a heartbeat!!

“400 Palm Trees!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

George was always so responsive to my emails which spanned about 2 years until I could finally get this trip nailed down. He met us at the cottage like we were old friends! We truly enjoyed his company and also his wife and daughter! They are wonderful hosts. We wanted for nothing. When George saw that our towels that were drying on the line were rained on overnight, he immediately brought fresh ones without us even asking! He was there when you needed him, or allowed you your privacy. We welcomed his company anytime though as he always has great suggestions for things to do on the island and he tolerated my husband's constant curiousity about buying property there! George is an expert at this. There are 2 rental properties along with the main house. One is a 2 br 2 ba cottage that is skillfully built out of steel panels for maximum strength and climate control. There is a screened porch, outdoor shower and foot wash, grill, free wifi, soon to be plush couches and flat screen tv, full kitchen, great AC throughout and the water is double filtered and safe to drink. The other property is a four bedroom beach house with double screened in porches and a large living room which would be great for bigger families. Soon George is adding beach palapas and fire pits! The water is gorgeous with a nice long walkable beach. He has kayaks available as well. And best of all, George has planted almost 400 palm trees between each of the 3 properties! It will look like a scene from the South Pacific once they are all fully grown! Best of all, there is plenty of fresh coconuts which my husband LOVES! We had the best week stayined with George at Whymmsical Wish and are hoping to get back there in the fall. Thanks George! Heather & Vince.
