The Guesthouse is Elevated to catch the balmy trade winds and gorgeous views, and is set back a little bit from the beach. Guests absolutely love the nice large kitchen with center prep-island, and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal or a nice family dinner is there for you !
Adjacent to the kitchen is the first of two large 14’ x 17’ screened porches containing a nice outdoor dining table ready for Six. The stainless steel propane BBQ grill is located right off the porch on the same level for easy grilling in close proximity to the kitchen.
The Guesthouse also features a nice comfortable living room area with a couple of sofas and chairs along with a nice large flat screen TV and Blu Ray Player.

The Guesthouse’s Four Air Conditioned Bedrooms each contain one queen bed, a dresser and mirror, large shelves and a clothes-hanging area. The two bathrooms feature walk in showers and plenty of hot water and water pressure!
We've got Ceiling Fans in every room and they really move the air ! Normally there is plenty of that famous Long Island Breeze blowing through all the windows, but it’s nice to have the fans there for backup. Of course, all Linens, towels and beach towels are provided.
The Whymms area, where we are located, is a mile off the main road and there are only a few other homes on our 2 ½ mile long beach, so this is a nice private and quiet setting. You can Walk the nice long beach out to Whalehead Cay…...Swim in the gin-clear waters or take the kayaks we have and snorkel around the small cays just offshore…maybe get a conch or lobster! Fish for bonefish right out front in one of the best spots on the island (shh, don't tell anybody!!!). Just 150 feet from the beach, you can walk out to the small little coral reefs that are there and look at the muti-colored coral and all the colorful fish swimming in and around the coral ......It's like having your own little salt water fish tank! The bay in front is fun to snorkel in and, even though it’s shallow, We've spotted octopus, conch, lobster, bonefish and all sorts of other stuff right off the beach in front.
Not only are we Super affordable but we are in a Great location !!!!! Our 15 acre property is located in a quiet area of the island and is centrally located between the attractions in the north and south making it a perfect place to be while visiting. We have almost 400 feet of ocean frontage on a 2 ½ mile long beach and spectacular ocean views that you will not tire of! We live here year round and we want all of our guests to get a good taste of what it's like to live on the island and to experience the island life and the island people……

George. He’s all that the reviews say he is. He’s friendly, welcoming and helpful. He wants you to enjoy your time on Long Island and in his place, so he’ll offer to do anything to make your visit easy. One day, he asked how our day was and we told him our daughter had gotten too much sun. In minutes, he was over with aloe. Another day, he popped over with an antihistamine for me.
Ask him about where to go, and he’ll send you to the best places. (Ask him about the beach behind Hillside)
The property: This was exactly what we were looking for. The house is about 1/3 of the way down the island. It was perfect for day trips. Rent a car, it is a must to get around, and even to get food.
We loved the quiet, spacious house. It was perfect for our 3 kids and us. We had room to spread out and relax. If you are looking for super fancy, this probably isn’t what you are looking for. It had 4 good size bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen. It had a dishwasher, a blender, microwave, etc. We loved the screened in porch. We ate out there every morning and evening listening to the sound of the waves and checking out the awesome stars and planets! (No light pollution, so we could see Mars and Venus. So cool!) The beds were comfortable. Our towels (both beach and bath) were changed during our trip.
The property is on a quiet strip of beach. We walked along the beach several times, and there was no one there. We saw crabs and found great shells. My husband went snorkelling out on the small reef by the house and said it was a good beginner place to go. When we wanted to go swimming or play on the beach, we tried the many other beaches on the island (Cape Santa Maria, the Hug, Dean’s Blue Hole, and Hillside were our fav places to go)
We were really glad to have a kitchen during our trip. Restaurants are not always available or close by (island charm) so we were really glad to be able to cook. Ask George about Hillside store. It was his suggestion, and the best we found on the island. No laundry in the house, but George will wash and dry for $10

From the moment we landed, to the moment we left, George took care of every detail!
If you are looking for a true get-a-way - this is the place. A busy day at the beach might include seeing 1 or 2 other people, otherwise you have every beach to your self! There is plenty to enjoy on the beach in from of Wymmsicalwish or take a drive, there are secluded beaches down every dirt road, each with their own unique personality.
This was our second (of many more to come)visit to Whymmsical Wish. We have stayed there with our grown children and it has been throughly enjoyed by all.The guest house comfortably slept all 6 adults and we enjoyed breakfast every morning in the screened it porch. The fully equiped kitchen allowed us to make lunches and snacks to enjoy at the beach. We all were greatful for the wireless access to make sure that things were running well back at the office!

Long Island is as much about the community as the location. The owner/host made sure we were comfortable so we could experience both. He helped organize so many elements of our trip it's like he was a concierge in another life.
Very comfortable and practical living space and a great base camp from which to enjoy a vacation. We're heading back again in spring 2012.
THE RATES ABOVE ARE FOR THE ENTIRE HOUSE AND THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS IS SIX. We take a 50% DEPOSIT TO SECURE A BOOKING AND THE BALANCE IS DUE WITHIN 90 DAYS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS !
