|Hi, I'm writing to thank you, my husband and I had
a wonderful wonderful time at your villa, the location, the privacy,
everything could not have been better and your information guides
Thanks again, Melissa Botnick
|We had a great time as the fish photo suggests. Love
the villa and the car was fantastic. We are planning to come back...Had
a great time and will tell my customers all about it.
|Beautiful! about 78-80 degrees each day...fly fishing - lots of
bonefish, hang out on beach.. walked a lot .. nice tan! Caught barracuda,
shark, lots of different fish and released them all. Great place
to chill and relax with family! Just a great place!!! The Ridings
Family (Nashville, TN - formerly from Northern CA)

|Thank you for sharing your villa with us! Perfect! Villa is very
clean, very quiet! We love it! Tom and CHi Tran, (Columbia, Maryland)

high stress jobs. DeBora, this place is a gem. We look forward to
our next visit!!

|We were able to catch needle and bonefish and the sharks were
cruising too. It's a great location and I'll be sure to recommend
it to others and keep it in mind for a return visit; the privacy
was top notch.

|We had a wonderful time on Long Island. Your house is beautiful.
Everything went well. We left some fins and aqua socks that are
too small for our daughter now, that perhaps other guests can use.
We had an excellent meal at Forest Bar and Grill, which I had not
seen suggested before. Best lobster I've ever had and good old rock
and roll 60s-70s music. Fun. ..Great weather, great snorkeling,
great people. Thank you.--
Your home is magnificent! My girlfriend Terri and I have been to
several out islands in the last few years, and probably enjoyed
Long Island more than the others. We had windy weather, which prohibited
us from snorkeling on the Atlantic side, but we enjoyed Dean's blue
hole, and some other inshore areas. We found some beautiful beaches
on our own, especially at the north end by the Columbus monument.
I looked for bonefish each day behind the house, and quite a ways
up and down the shore, but saw none.
If an improvement could be made, it would be to have better directions
to many of the beaches and snorkeling areas that are accessible
without a boat. We spent hours driving up and down many dead end
roads, trying to get to the sea. At times, we would get there, only
to find no beach, just a surf break on rocks.
Pierre was informative when we asked for help. He also served a
great meal one night, as did the Parrots restaurant near the house.
We are telling our friends about our experiences, with many of them
considering going over there. I directed them to your web site,
which by the way is outstanding, the best of any I've seen.
Thank you again,
Reply from DeBora: Thanks for the
info. Great suggestions! Regarding: Snorkeling without a boat, any
places you think I should add to our site?
The locals are the ones who told me that the best bonefishing is
right outside our villa.
|Fabulous! Breezy and bright. The people (of Long Island) are very
friendly and helpful if you ask! They are very engaging and geniunely
care if you are enjoying your visit. George and Monika Adrian (Indiana)
Just wanted to share that we had a great week on Long Island.
The accommodations were great. Waking up and seeing paradise out
the window every morning was the best. Actually the entire house
provided a great view of the water. Whether we were doing dishes,
reading on the lanai, or using the toilet, the turquoise water
provided a soothing back drop.
Sorry to say Mike didn't catch any bonefish out in front of the
house. But his skills need to be polished. So maybe next year
he'll have better luck. He did great with a local guide out on
a boat. I even went with him one day and caught a few bonefish.
But I enjoyed seeing the water and landscape out on the ocean
We ate at Max's Conch Grill the first night. Gary's conch salad
was great. Mike picked up a fresh batch after each day of fishing.
We also ate at Chez Pierre twice, once without reservations and
he didn't get upset. Otherwise we found the local fish market
and grocery had a good selection for making dinner at the house.
Thanks again for the wonderful vacation spot. We are highly recommending
it to our friends and are considering going back in 2009.
Have a great summer.
Mike and Debbie
We are calling you from your villa right now and we absolutely love
it. We wanted to call you right away to have you please mark us
down for next year during the same time frame. We realize that this
is a year away, but we are having such a great time that we wanted
to make sure we didnt loose our chance of reserving this home
for next year. We were eating at Chez Pierre and another couple
said that next year they wanted to stay here, so we had to call
you right away. The villa is a perfect place to kick back and de-stress
which is exactly what we needed. thanks for teh comfortable new
furniture. Many relaxing hours were spent on the screened deck enjoying
the vast view and peace and quiet.

Reply from DeBora: You got it! I'm
glad to hear you enjoy it as much as I do.
We did have the most wonderful week of weather!
The people of Long
Island are so great - that is one reason why we come back every year (as well
as the lovely, secluded beaches). Many of the friends we met when we were there
on our sailboat 4 years ago are still around and it is so great to catch up with
them. Your cottage is so convenient for us because most of our friends are either
at the Bite, or in salt pond/Thompson bay so it is the perfect location. It is
also very clean, has wonderful views and really does meet our needs for the stay.
My only suggestion would be to add a cutting board, or maybe a small cooler to
the kitchen equipment. Other than that - it was perfect! Thank you for having
us and I'm sure we will be back!
Reply from DeBora: Since our home is
new, we are gradually bringing items down to the house. Cutting Board and Cooler
are on their way. Thanks for the idea!
YES, we had exceptional weather all days there! We enjoyed the location
a lot! The beach house was great! .... We enjoyed the Bahamian Village/Pirates
of the Caribbean tiki bar and grill. Great people there and clean!...It was so
close! :) We also had some food from the Seafood market at the Marina just up
the road (west side) and the lobster and shrimp were incredible! We used Hillside
Grocery! They had everything we wanted and needed. The timer coffee machine was
great to have. Woke up to coffee every morning! Perfect!
bushes at the downstairs entrance and at the stairs tot he upstairs stabbed us
a few times. Just thought you may want to know that... in case you want to move
them somewhere else at some point. :) They would be great out front around the
screened area for "protection" rather than at a very frequented spot.
Not trying to tell you how to do things at all! I just know how it feels to have
rental property and thought I would give you my opinions. :)...
issue with the can opener upstairs-both of them. Could not seem to get the old
one to work at all and the new one in the knife set block was confusing and we
never figured it out.
There's a GREAT guy at Chris and Jean's Dive shop off
Queens Road just south of you that carves wood and makes the coolest art! Fish,
sea turtles, YOU NAME IT! Very quality work and we saw many of his pieces around.
Great wall hangings!! He's a native (young) and works with Chris a lot... I think
his name is Charles! Very nice young man and his mom makes all kinds of cool straw
stuff, placemats, baskets, etc... She has a shop north of your place.
loved the house and the location! We got a couple of kayaks from Chris and Gene
(American) down the road (Queen's) at ReelDivers. They were so cool and very helpful
with insight on the island of where all the neat spots were! ..We wrote a nice
note in your greeting book too! We loved the island and it's natives we met!
Reply from DeBora: I moved
the Yukka bushes to the back side of the new outside grill location - thanks for
the tip. They really did get big fast and they also stabbed me in the back a few
times before I moved them. Also, a new electronic can opener is already at the
house upstairs. Simply put it on the can, press the button and let it go. Thanks
for your suggestions - we used them all.
|The people of Long Island are very friendly - everyone we met
- everyone waves on the road. Nice Villa - super clean.

|Hi DeBora: We had an excellent vacation on Long Island. Beautiful
weather - sunny every day, breezy and no humidity. ...Debora's Dreamscape
Villa on Indian Hole Point, Thompson Bay was spacious, new, and
right on the beach - beautiful sunset views! We loved the food at
Chez Pierre (great seafood pasta), Club Washington had excellent
chicken, grouper & burger platters (great prices) Contact Jerrry
@ Atlantic Fisheries in Salt Pond for fresh grouper and lobster
tails - we feasted 3 days on this. (signposted just off Queens Hwy
by HCS grocery store) ...While in Clarence town visit the majestic
Father Jerome Anglican and Catholic churches - stunning! The islanders
were incredibly friendly and made our visit truly memorable. We
had a wonderful time You could mention on your website Atlantic
Fisheries in Salt Pond. The owner Jerry was fabulous and sold us
fresh grouper and lobster tails - great for someone who would like
a meal or 2 at home. ... Bahamian Village ... you could mention
this on your website as a lunch recommendation. DeBora's Villa was
super comfortable with great views and beautiful sunsets and great
