2019 Family Vacation
Beautiful Property. Great for family. We had a lovely time and everyone in Stella Maris is very accommodating. Strike up conversations with locals and you find the best spots. Make sure you tour the Long Island from one end to the other.
The house is beautiful and furnished with everything you could need. Bruno the property manager was awesome. Definitely recommend a rental car to explore all that the island has to offer. We will be back!
Our experience at Rock Hill couldn’t have been better! My two friends and I stayed for almost a week at the property and loved it. The home is spacious, clean, and beautiful- the views from the home are spectacular! It is fully equipped- plenty of towels, toiletries, etc. We cooked at home a few of the nights during our stay and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more. Bruno, the property manager, was extremely nice and helpful in preparing for our trip and any questions we had during our time there.
Long Island offers an experience unlike any of the other Bahamian islands we’ve visited. It is a great place to visit if you are looking for untouched natural beauty and a vacation away from crowded beaches and tourist attractions. We had the perfect balance between relaxing days on the many beautiful beaches and stargazing at night, and then days with activities (boating with Docky, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming at Dean’s Blue Hole, and so on). Our experience at RockHill was amazing and we can’t wait to get back!
We are glad you had a wonderful stay at Rock Hill. Please come back again soon! Long Island is a special place.
The house was fantastic. The use of the near by Stella Maris resort was great. It is a bit dated of a resort, but people were extremely nice and accommodating. Long island is a quiet place, but w a Boat, fishing and sightseeing, we filled up 5 days quickly and had a blast.
Bruno, the caretaker is such a great guy. I recommend calling him first to help with whatever plans you want to make. He is a great resource.
This house was a great place to stay, couldn’t have asked for anything more.
The house was absolutely gorgeous! It was clean when we arrived and the check in proceeds and check out process were all very smooth. It is a little far from most things on the island but the view and comfort of the home made up for it. I recommend doing a big grocery shop before getting to the house so you have everything you need. Stella Maris Resort is close but the food is not very tasty. For better food go to Cape Santa Maria Resort their beach is also gorgeous! We had 6 people and the house was affordable we also got the security deposit back without any issue.
A beautiful and stylish recently built Bahamia home with stunning /uninterrupted views of the ocean.
Only 3 mins walk from the charming Stella Maris Resort, Rock Hill offers an idealic getaway home for anyone seeking peace and quiet, direct walking access to 3 delightful beaches and all the authenticity of a Bahamian island. The house is exceptionally well appointed and all of the appliances and furnishings are of a very high standard. The house has a modern feel to it but is sympathetic to local style / architecture. All your needs can be easily taken care of by the very friendly house manager who is even very happy to stock up your fridge with food and drinks before you arrive!
Days can be spent simply lounging on the terrace watching the days go by or alternatively a car can be dropped off at the house (extra charge) so that you can explore the island. Down south there is the 600ft deep Deans Blue Hole and the nearby marina (good food) and along the way, an assortment of local waterside bars serving conch ceviche and rum punch!
Fifteen mins drive away are the beautiful beaches of Cape Sta Maria. Docky, the local boat guy is only too happy to take you out and show you his own small island to meet his pigs, into caves and cliffs that you can jump off, snorkeling in the shallow waters and of course shark and sting ray sightings!
Food on the island is typical Caribbean fare. Groceries can be found for basic cooking. We preferred to try all the local spots. The bar / restaurant at Stella Maris offers good food and an eclectic scene of both guests and locals. It’s super friendly. The Oceanside pool bar offers good food with a spectacular view and a pristine beach!
It’s would be hard to say anything bad about Rock House, it’s location (5 min from a tiny airport) or the experience waiting for any visitor. It’s a fabulous destination!
A unique Bahamian 'Out-Island' Experience... Long Island is far away from the crowds of other island vacations. The North End of Long Island offers pristine ocean waters with amazing fishing (flats & deep sea), lobstering, scuba diving, exploring, island hopping, etc... and general relaxation.
