About Cheryl Paddock
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.
Cheryl Paddock purchased this cottage in 2009
Why Cheryl Paddock chose Long Island
From the first moment of visiting Long Island and the Lochabar area, Barry and I felt we had truly found home. The amazing beauty and safety of the harbor, the local people & neighbors who have become close friends, the sea life plus the surrounding vegetation make this the ultimate place to relax or enjoy numerous water sports & activities. A bit of heaven on earth!
The 3 cays in front are accessible by kayak to beach comb for shells, bring a picnic or to enjoy solitary pursuits. It also makes the water calm with the amazing colors of turquoise and many shades of blue.
What makes this cottage unique
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 in Clarence Town that serve Bahamian style meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner or ordering takeout if you wish to eat in to enjoy the view. There are several stores within driving distance if you wish to cook and prepare your own.
Deadmans cay airport is a 20 minute drive from the cottage and is an easy commute. Deadmans Cay also hosts a Doctors Clinic with a smaller clinic in Clarence Town.
