Clarence Town cottage description

Whistling Duck, our romantic one bedroom cottage, approx 600 sq ft. has air conditioning and also has a full kitchen, living room and bath with shower. It's located on beautiful Lochaber Beach in Clarence Town, Long Island, Bahamas. Three islands border the harbor in front to protect and calm the water. Wonderful for swimming and snorkeling! Inside French doors open into the queen bedroom with connecting bath. This bath has a pedestal sink, wood carved painted island mirror and a hand crafted featured tile of a mermaid and her sea master! A private veranda with an attached outdoor shower is accessible from the bedroom. Windows abound with special water views. The covered front porch deck has a swing and a few steps take you to a covered gazebo placed right at the water's edge.

This cottage has privacy but is within a short drive to well stocked stores and great island fare restaurants. It is a self caretaking cottage with the option for a fee of daily housekeeping.

Long Island is a family friendly island and is very safe. It is known as one of the best places in the world to bonefish.


Already the smell of freshly brewed coffee, relaxing in a wicker chaise and the warmth of the sun beckons you to come and soak in the area known as beautiful Lochaber.

                          Owner info

                          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.
