Long Island House Rental Photos and Description
Lovely 2 story 3 BR 3 BA Beach Home--
Harbor villa is located on the beach in Lochabar Bay at Clarence Town Harbor, Long Island, Bahamas within sight of Flying Fish Marina in a quiet tropical setting overlooking an exceptionally beautiful mile long white powder beach. This house is built at an elevation of 40 feet above sea level with ocean views from every room. The deck, balcony, covered porch and all rooms are above the tree line to catch the breezes and for fabulous views of Clarence Town Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. Three cays(islands) situated between our beach and the Atlantic Ocean stop large waves and provide us with a gently sloping, sandy beach free of currents and undertows. The calm water and long beach make this a classic. Lochabar 'Blue Hole' is a short walk away. This is a perfect place for a peaceful, secluded, sunny and quiet getaway, yet only 3-4 minutes from bars & restaurants.
Our house features 3 full size bedrooms, each with A/C, ceiling fans, queen size beds, and private bathrooms.
Large covered and screened entrance porch with skylights, ceiling fan, table and chairs. Perfect for outdoor dining or relaxing in the shade. Great for the infrequent rainy days! Large 13' X 20' deck facing the ocean, extending out above the tree tops, ideal for sunbathing. The ocean-side top floor balcony with access from two bedrooms is a relaxing spot to enjoy sea breezes and the never ending view. Fully equipped kitchen. Laundry room.
We are one mile south of Clarence Town and a twenty minute drive from Deadsman's Cay Airport(airport code LGI). Clarence Town has restaurants, liquor store, bakery, gas station, shopping, health clinic and a new marina.

Area: Clarence Town, the capital of Long Island and the principle harbor on the east coast of Long Island, is one of the prettiest settlements in the Bahamas and has 2 twin-spired churches with a most interesting history as they were both designed and built by the late Father Jerome, an architect and religious figure well known throughout the Bahamas. You can visit both churches and it is possible to climb the narrow passage up into the towers of Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Church for a spectacular view of Clarence Town, the harbor and dock, Atlantic Ocean, and the Lochabar Beach area and cays.
