Guestbook comments from the owner
Cheryl

We had the most wonderful time. Your place was perfect for us. We did not want to leave. Especially to come back to this hated weather. Nancy is a wonderful person. You are really lucky to have her. We had a car for the whole time. We went from one end of the island to the other. You guys have the perfect location. Thank you so much. Tom and Barbara

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.

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.

Perfect for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
This was the greatest vacation of our lives. From the initial booking process, Cheryl took great care of us. We were greeted at the airport by Nancy and driven to our cottage (she also helped us get to the airport on our departure date). She took us to a nice little grocery store on the way and we picked up some things to eat and drink at the cottage. We couldn't believe how beautiful the property was and although the photos are very nice, they can not do this amazing location justice! We rented a vehicle for 2 days and travelled all the way up north and then back down south (the island is small enough that you can see everything, which is great compared to the usual resort atmosphere we were used to). We checked out the Flying Fish Marina which was a great time, and visited Max's Conch Bar and Grill twice (our favourite!!). The people on Long Island are the friendliest we have come across on all our vacations, and made us feel right at home. We would not hesitate to recommend the Whistling Duck Cottage to our friends and family, and only hope we are able to make it back again in the future! Thanks Cheryl and Barry (AND NANCY!).

Ready to Come Back

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year in a row my wife and I stayed at the Whistling Duck along with our 2 friends who stayed at the Passionate Pelican the sister cottage. This was their second year at the Passionate Pelican. I cannot say enough good things about the property and owners Barry & Cheryl. They were staying at their property next door for the first few days upon our arrival. They did EVERYTHING to help make our stay better. They gave us complete privacy, however WE called upon them several times. They were an excellent host & hostess. When we first walked into our cottage there was a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Nice after a long day of travel and they tasted great! They take great care of the property and are genuine and warm people. We were hoping to return in 2014 however the dates we would like are already booked!! :( The atmosphere is Islandy, fun and comfortable at the cottage and it is very clean and decorated very nicely. We found all the amenities that we needed in the kitchen. We like to cook our meals in and there was nothing that was lacking in kitchen for our needs. There were also plenty of linens and beach towels for our use. The bed is comfortable and we never had a bad nights sleep. The view of the harbor is just awesome. Lisa and I sat on the porch and just enjoyed the view each morning. The kayaks that were provided also gave us a lot of enjoyment and allowed us to do some exploring to the barrier islands across the harbor. We will definitely be back to the Whistling Duck soon!!! Can’t wait!!!

Thank you Cheryl & Barry!!

Awsome time

  • 5 of 5
March of 2011 (couldn't put the correct date above), I went on a solo trip to Long Island and stayed at the Whistling Duck. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. Nancy was amazing and incredibly helpful with all my questions, setting up transportation and suggestions on where to go on the the island. I rented a car for the first couple days and after I returned the rental I was a bit bummed. But I decided to ride the bike, the owner allows the renters to use, and I completely forgot about wanting the car again! The private beach is beautiful during the day. I could literally write a novel about my one week stay, but I'll keep it short. Perfect location, I don't know if it's technically a "lagoon" but that's how calm the water is during the day. The cottage is awsome, everything you need is in there. Took out the Kayak a couple times, went to Dean's Blue hole a couple times... Writing about it is making me miss it even more!! If you choose Long Island, this is the place to stay!

Thank you Nancy for all you help, and Cheryl, you could not have been more organized planing the dates and even understanding when I had a minor meltdown without a car! haha. Thank you again and I hope to see the whistling duck in the future!

My wife and I love Long Island Bahamas and have vacationed here over the past several years. This is the first time we stayed in Lockabar Bay and at the "Whistling Duck". We invited two good friends to experience the real island life and they rented the sister cottage next door the "Passionate Pelican". Each couple likes their privacy so two cottages worked PERFECT for our stay. Everyone loved the cottages. Both cottages have tasteful Island decor and all the amenities we needed. We stayed in to cook many evenings and the kitchens were fully equipped.
The view of the Bay was breathtaking, warm and inviting. My wife Lisa and I sipped on our coffee each morning enjoying the multiple hues of blue in Lockabar Bay and sometimes spotting sea turtles along the shore.
The landscape is beautiful on the grounds and everything is well kept and clean!!!! The location is right on a beautiful beach and is in close proximity of several other breath taking beaches such as Compass Rose, Galloway and Diamond Crystal (my favorite).
There was a separate patio off the bedroom overlooking Lockabar Bay that was private to itself and was the entrance way for the outdoor shower.
The bed was as big and comfortable as it looks in the photos. We love Long Island and loved the Whistling Duck Cottage. We are making our plans to return to Whistling Duck again next year!!!!!!!! Thank you Cheryl!!!!

simply the best ...

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent five nights in this bliss-filled cottage in Clarencetown, Long Island Bahamas. We have been to this remote outer island many times over the past fifteen years, but this was our first stay at the Whistling Duck, We were aware of its many favorable reviews, and yet it far surpassed our expectations. It's location on a pristine crescent beach with spectacular views was just what we were looking for in a tropical getaway. The decor is pure delight and more than accommodating with every imaginable convenience. Nancy is to be appauded for the fine care she takes of both the cottage and its guests. While we were there, we snuck a peek at the Duck's purple sister, the Shy Pelican. It is somewhat larger and equally delightful in its decor. Long island is a realatively well kept secret with its amazing deserted beaches and friendly people ... and the Whistling Duck is its "golden egg"!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at the Whistling Duck and Passionate Pelican 4 times, and can't think of a better place for a couple looking for together time in paradise. The accessibility of the lagoon, easy drives to several restaurants and some secluded South End beaches make this a fantastic location. Nancy will answer your every need, from meeting you at the Deadman's Cay airport to helping to get a rental car, even stocking a few groceries if you arrive on a Sunday when the stores are closed. She helped us with food twice, picking up some spaghetti and sauce, bread and butter, etc. - we just left the money on the kitchen table when we left.

The front porch and the side deck both give great places to relax, read, sunbathe, or just take a nap. There is also a hammock down in the trees by the water.

All in all you couldn't ask for a better island cottage.
