What makes this cottage unique

Amazing breathtaking views right on the water. Beautiful sunsets, Your home away from home

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a fabulous time at Baywatch Cottage. The location is so scenic, and accessible to some fantastic beaches on the Atlantic side of the island, Hillside Grocery, and each tip of the island is a pretty easy drive from the house.

Phil met us at the airport and gave us a full overview of the house, then left us to our own private world. We cooked several meals and made good use of the grill at the house. My favorite restaurant was The Forest, while my wife favored Chez Pierre's establishment.

Long Island had so much beauty that some of the other family islands do not, especially the elevation on the Atlantic.

Thank you for all your help in making this vacation hassle-free and a wonderful memory for the two of us.

Amazing place and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at Baywatch. This is our second time to the island and first time at this lovely cottage. The location of the cottage is perfect, secluded but yet close to the grocery stores and party store. The kitchen is completely appointed with everything needed to prepare meals. The grounds are stunning and attention to all details by our hosts make it the ideal place to turn out the world and tune into nature and quiet. Phil and Debbie are both very special making sure we had everything we needed. Their hospitality is warm and genuine. We especially liked meeting several other people who live on the island who made our visit most special. Salt Pond is a great location as it is about in the middle of the island and you can explore both north and south and it's a good day trip in either direction. We recommend this very special place and hope others enjoy it as much.

Thanks again to Debbie and Phil for making our escape so perfect.

Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the Bay view Cottage was absolutely fantastic. The home is exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. Central location on the island made it very easy to explore. The cottage is located on a large property and is quite private. Phil and Debbie were great hosts, providing us with privacy and at the same time being very responsive if we needed anything. Perfect sunsets every day can be enjoyed from the large screened in porch or the awesome deck just steps away. We'll be back for sure! Thanks for sharing your great cottage Phil and Debbie!

Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Long Island and Baywatch Cottage, within three days of our our eight day vacation we had already rebooked. The property is amazing, with views that can't be beat. Waking up each morning looking out at Thompson Bay was the best way to start the day full of adventures. The location is perfect with amenities close by, food places to dine at and views to behold.

Long Island itself was an outstanding experience. From dolphins swimming in the moon's glow, to friendly waves as we drove, to beaches without people, to beautiful shells collected, to swimming in shrimp grottos hidden behind a church, this made for one of our most memorable vacations.

We can't wait for our return!

Beautiful, comfortable and centrally located

  • 4 of 5

Had everything we needed for cooking as there are not many restaurants on the island.

Be careful walking around the property very uneven. If you aren't good on your feet not the place for you or if your going to be drinking a lot not the place. My husband fell on the first night and got scratched up by the coral. Not a deal breaker just no ahead of time be careful. Overall this was a great home and Cheryl was very easy to deal with ahead of time and also while we were there. Phil was a great meet at the airport and rode with us back to the cottage pointing out spots to see and things to do. Very very friendly Phil, Debbie and Cheryl thank you for a terrific trip.
