                              Located in beautiful Lochabar Harbor known for being the safest harbor on the island and located in the capitol of the island, Clarence Town, Passionate Pelican is only 1-1/2 miles away from several harbor restaurants, bars and a small grocery store plus a bakery. There are many other stores and restaurants located throughout the island. The restaurants serve tasty island fare and the grocery stores have many staples with fresh food arriving weekly by boat. Clarence Town also hosts a health clinic and a packing house that you might find fresh fruit before it ships oversees. Fresh bread made locally may be purchased at Mr. Pratt's store in town on certain days. Bakery items may be ordered through another location near town. You'll also find island made crafts along the highway in Clarence Town. Two beautiful churches grace the hilltops as you enter town. Long Island is one of the safest islands where crime is rare. Residents of Long Island are very friendly and very helpful to tourists.

                              There are no commercial resorts or chain stores located anywhere on Long Island. Island bands are a treat!

                              About the owner: The best part of being the contact person for the cottages is that I love the interactions with people of every inquiry I receive. Each story is unique and the reasons for coming to LI - anniversaries, birthdays, getting married, or just plain kicking back to relax, are all to be celebrated and I love being a part of it. Many guests we have met and they have become friends to both Barry and I. We always look forward to meeting up again and rejoice when our paths do cross at the same time.

                              Why the Owner Chose Clarence Town:
                              From the first moment visiting Long Island and the Lochabar area, Barry and I felt we had found home. The amazing beauty and safety of the harbor, the local people & neighbors who have become close friends and the sea life plus the surrounding vegetation make this the ultimate place to relax or enjoy numerous water sports & activities. The 3 cays in front are accessible by kayak to beach comb for shells, bring a picnic or enjoy solitary pursuits. It also makes the water calm with the amazing colors of turquoise and many shades of blue. Simply amazing!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Sea life with turtles & rays plus the birds, butterflies and flowers surround you with their presence to enjoy. The cottage location makes it easy to dine out. There are 2 local restaurants close by that serve Bahamian style meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there are several stores within driving distance if you wish to eat in to enjoy the view.
