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

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!

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.

An Actual Getaway - It was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Before I get into the actual property I think I need to start by setting expectations of Long Island. There are some very helpful articles and reviews on tripadvisor that describe Long Island that I think everyone should read before heading down. Long Island is not the land of luxury. if you are looking for resorts and all inclusive you will not find it here. In my case it was exactly what I was looking for. Long Island is a place where you can do the exploring on your own (and free) but also feel safe (Long Island has a very low crime rate). I planned some basic beaches and destinations that I wanted to see based on comments and input from others and none of them disappointed. I snorkeled in a handful of locations including the bay that the Passionate Pelican is located on. I am not a very experienced snorkeler and all locations were easy swimming and I had the opportunity to see some interesting things. We had the chance to interact with some of the full time residents and get a feel for what life is actually like there. To truly make the most of your time I recommend a car for the entire stay. there are a handful of rental agencies mostly offering late model sedans and SUVS. Get the SUV as many of the roads and paths are rocky and sandy. If you are up for some do it yourself fun and adventure this is a perfect destination.

The Passionate Pelican itself could not be in a more beautiful location. The pictures on this site do not really do it justice. The water at lochabar is full of blues and greens and the property itself is a pristine garden. Within the first day my wife and I were already saying we would come back. That is saying a lot as we vowed when we got married that we would vacation some place new every year. The property was clean and appropriate with everything in the kitchen you would need to prepare any meal. Having wifi to face time with our 7 month old daughter made our first trip away manageable. The outdoor shower was amazing with a clear view of the water. The best feature however is the deck of the living space that opens up to the breathtaking scenery. The location makes sense too as it is within a couple miles of the capital of the island Clarence town. There is a marina with a couple of restaurants if you choose to eat a meal out. I will be posting a few of my favorite pictures to facebook and tagging the Pelican facebook page if anyone cares to see some more pictures. This place is true beauty!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Most rental properties don't look nearly as good in person as they do in the pictures, but the opposite is true here. There is no way to describe the beauty of this place. Passionate Pelican is clean and comfortably appointed for a couple. The owners, Cheryl and Barry, have created a perfect retreat that is private, stunning and user friendly.
Having traveled to many other Caribbean destinations, Long Island, particularly the south end, feels safe, uncrowded, welcoming, and stunningly beautiful. If you are looking for a resort atmosphere this is not the place for you. But if you love exploring nearly deserted beaches, long roads to nowhere, and uninhabited islands, this is the place for you.
We loved having the kayak right at our door and spent a lot of time exploring the area and the wildlife. There is a blue hole within walking distance down the beach. The water and sand are incredible. From the deck we were able to watch turtles and stingrays swim by. At night the private deck was a perfect place for star gazing. There is usually a breeze which keeps the sand flies away, but if it is still, they can be a real annoyance. In 21 days, they were only an issue several evenings.
There are lots of opportunities for all types of fishing adventures. We enjoyed the sunsets on deserted west side beaches. There were several good restaurants in Clarence Town.
You will need a car to get around unless you just want to stay at the house, but driving was easy. You can get local produce in Clarence Town and the best time to shop is Wed. morning. Grocery selection is limited and expensive, but you can pick up most things that you need on the way home from the airport. Nancy will stop at the store with you and the house has everything you need to prepare your own meals.
Thank you, thank you! We will be back.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5
This was overall a fantastic vacation on Long Island. I highly recommend it for anyone that likes privacy and amazing beaches.

Love this island for it's amazing beaches (Lochabar, Stella Maris, Deans Blue Hole, Gordons). Food was okay.. not all that.. not that many options, not that much variety.

Loved the Passionate Pelican because of the following reasons -

1. Great Privacy
2. Great Location in Clarence Town
3. Nancy was great, she met us at the airport and got us settled in.
4. House was clean
5. Great Kayaks
6. Nice View

Things that I wasn't so crazy about -

1. Insect issue (tons of flies, got lots of mosquito bites also)
2. No satellite or cable (DVDs were cool though)
3. Would have been nice to get someone come once in the middle of the week to change linens and clean.

Other than that.. i highly recommend this place and island.. great place for a great price.

Peace in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have just spent a wonderful week at this lovely villa.You need a car for a few days to see the island as not a lot happening in Clarence Town. A beautiful beach minutes from the villa and great views.The owner was very good at answering all our questions and replied very quickly.The property was clean and well maintained.The listing photos were very accurate as well as information regarding the location.A very good choice for peace and quiet away from the busy hotels in Nassau.

Vacation of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
Words can't even begin to describe how amazing this place is. My husband and I live a very fast paced lifestyle in the US, and in the seven years that we've been together I have never seen him totally relaxed. The very first morning that we woke up in the cottage I watched my husband lie down on the couch, and just stare outside at the breathtaking view for over an hour....that never happens!

While the photos uploaded for this cottage are very nice, they don't come close to giving you a true sense of how wonderfull the place really is. Everything about the cottage, from the location, architecture, design, furnishings, and decor was topnotch.

As far as recommending this place to others...I already have...to everyone I like! Wouldn't want too many people knowing about a place we intend to return to often.

The restaurants on the island are far and few between, and their menus could be interchangeable, because everyone served the same basic dishes with the exception of one restaurant "Rowdy Boys." The food there was exceptional, rather pricey (but well worth it!)

If you are on a budget, be prepared to purchase your own food, and do your own cooking at the cottage. The cottage has everything you need to cook the perfect meal, then sit down and enjoy it while staring out the windows at the beautiful turquoise water.

I cannot wait to return to this little piece of heaven on earth...really wish I had never left!

we loved Long Island and the Pasionate Pelican!

  • 5 of 5
How lucky were we to have found this beautiful cottage and spend a week there. The location on Lochabar Bay is lovely with wonderful views. The cottage is a well designed and constructed structure with every detail obviously given much thought. There was a very comfortable bed, a well equipped kitchen and the whole place was sparkling clean. Bicycles and a tandem kayak were available to us and of course the walk along the beach was always enjoyable.
Long Island is a friendly place with lots of beautiful beaches with barely a soul on them. We would highly recommend renting a car so you can discover them.
Len also spent a lot of time bonefishing, two days with a guide, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Long Island and the Passionate Pelican is the perfect place to get away from it all and totally unwind.

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!
