Lovely home, stunning beaches

My best friends and I have been doing an annual Bahamas trip for many years. We adore the Exuams and have been to Cat Island and San Salvador. Long Island and Loachabar House exceeded our expectations and is now tied for first with our favorite places in the Bahamas.
The house is SO comfortable, inside and out. The sun deck and it's view are amazing; the lanai porch is great for cooking out or when you want to be outside but have had your days worth of sunshine.
The kitchen is well equipped and great for cooking. In comparision to the smaller islands we have traveled to, the stores near the house are well stocked and the prices fairly reasonable. The food boat comes on Weds afternoon so if you hit the stores Weds before close or Thursday morning you will be able to get plenty fresh veggies. We were impressed. We bought fresh fish every other day.
The beach in front of the house is AMAZING. We did encounter about 4 days of very windy weather followed by a straight up rainy day but even on the bad days the house and covered porch are so comfortable, we were content and relaxed.
The days of sun and no wind, which were continuous after the first 5 of our trip 14 day stay, were paradise . We sea kayaked to the cays across the way.
We saw sea turtles and rays EVERY DAY, making their afternoon journey to somewhere. They are shy but beautiful.
There is not much as far as snorkeling in front of the house but further up the road in Morrisville there is some beautiful live coral and a ship wreck and we saw tons of amazing fish and fantastic glowing squid! You do have to wait for a fairly windless day to snorkel the open Atlantic side as it can be rough. That's what is amazing about Lochabar Bay, the cays in front keep the water fairly calm, some days it was glassy, the days with bad weather a bit of a chop.
There are stunning beaches on the Caribbean side of the Island, a very short drive away from the house. Galloway Beach and the coves near it are highly recommended. Calm waters, shade of the sea pines, heavenly.
Nancy the caretaker and her nephew Earnest are a wealth of information and clued us in on other beaches worth seeing.
The Blue Hole that is near the house may not be Dean's Blue Hole but it's beautiful and you can walk to it!
Our last day we saw Flamingos on the beach and they circled my friend in her kayak, stunning.
We highly recommend Lochabar House. Ron and Deb thanks! Long Island is beautiful and there is still so much to see.

My wife and infant son just returned from our stay at this rental house (1-18-2012). VRBO listing 102189. We are well traveled and have been to a bunch of places in the Caribbean including Cat Island. I can say this place is nearly perfect in every way. The house is very well maintained, in excellent shape and is fully set up for whatever you need. The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers and the setting is absolutely stunning. The deck that looks out to Lochabar beach is perfect as it is a nice mix of sun and shade and always has a nice breeze. The screened in leni is perfect for reading and relaxing in a screened in environment if that is needed. The no see ums were very minimal during our stay but as with any place in the Caribbean they are not to be trifled with at sun up and at dusk. Virtually no mosquitoes to speak of. The kayaks are in excellent shape and are of above average quality as well as the life jacket’s and paddles. The house is set off the beach a very short distance which I found to be of an advantage. All of the amenities in the house were in perfect condition and spotlessly clean. The owners are very gracious, extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the island. The beach in front of the house is amazing and will likely have your prints only on it most of the time. If you venture out to the keys across the bay you will be beachcombing by yourself in an untouched and pristine setting. I would absolutely recommend this place for families, couples fishermen and anybody who is looking for a place in Long Island. I am an avid bone fisherman. I was able to find Permit in front of the house crusing the shore and Bonefish in the flat east-southeast of the blue hole. The road to Galloway is absolutely chocked full of more flats that could be fished in lifetime and hold lots of big bonefish. I never saw another fisherman the entire 10 days I was there. I can’t say enough good things about this place. We looked at the other places we considered renting and were overjoyed we chose this one. Trust me you won’t be disappointed. Also the neighbor to the house is a friend of the owner and is wonderful as well and willing to help if need be. This location and house are extremely safe and allow for a fantastic relaxing environment to really enjoy the best of long Island. Don’t consider staying anywhere else if this is the location you are targeting.
