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.

ACTIVITIES: swimming, snorkeling, beach-combing/shelling, fishing, diving , kayaking, hiking, exploring the island, sightseeing--checking out plantation ruins,caves and the 663'deep Dean's Blue Hole, Long Island Museum, or just relaxing in the sun.

In the evening watch the full moon rise above the ocean. On the darkest night, lay on the deck & look up to see millions of stars as you have never seen them before. The possibilities are endless--you'll need more time.

AMENITIES: Linen and towels included.

Clothes washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, refrigerator with ice maker, electric stove with oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave oven, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, bread maker, blender, gas BBQ grill, dishes/utensils(service for 12), pots, pans, etc., 100 plus book library. Sand chairs, hammock. TV, DVD and VCR(sorry, no cable or satellite dish), a selection of movies in DVD and VCR tapes. Telephone/Fax & FREE UNLIMITED CALLS to the USA. High speed Internet & WI-FI. 2 one-person kayaks and 1 two-person kayak and life jackets that are provided and required for kayak use. Bone fishing guide information available.

.

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. Long Island is for adventurous type people who love remote places.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lochabar House on Long Island. This was a family vacation with our 2 adult sons and our daughter-in-law.The setting was idyllic and the house was perfect. We loved the view of the protected bay on the Atlantic side where there was always a welcoming breeze. We cooked all of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen. We explored Long Island from stem to stern in the rental van provided. The beautiful beaches and gorgeous scenery were plentiful. The people on the island were very friendly and accomodating. This is a very safe island to visit. Thanks to Ron, the owner, for all of his welcome communication. All of the details made this house feel like a home on a beautiful island.

What a beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10-day stay at this property. It was the perfect location for me, my husband and our two boys (ages 10 and 13). Ron was very helpful leading up to our trip, always ready with answers to my many questions. Once we landed, his caretakers Nancy and Ernest were great on-the-ground resources as well.

The property is located on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay (protected by three small cays, which helps to keep the wind down). Most times we were completely alone on the beach, or we might see just a small handful of other people. When the water is calm it's a great spot for swimming and kayaking. Twice the wind was calm enough that we took the kayaks across the bay to the uninhabited cay. We found amazing shells there, and of course another beautiful beach. My son bought a fishing pole on the island and tried fishing the blue hole almost every day. He never managed to land anything (did have a few bites), but it was great fun for him. When the wind was calm the boys also snorkeled this blue hole and did see a few fish, rays and turtles. We even saw wild pigs a few times on the trail leading down to the ocean!

The island is very driveable, and although there are a few restaurants close by we found ourselves driving closer to the mid- and upper-island for a mid-afternoon meal and some activities most days. (Tiny's Hurricane Hole, the restaurant at Cape Santa Maria Resort, Chez Pierre and the very nearby Flying Fish Marina were all good choices for nice meals.) Otherwise, we cooked at the house, which was well-equipped with spices, pots and pans, and just about anything you might need.

There's more to do mid- and upper-island, but we would definitely still choose this home on a return trip. There are a lot of places on the island that do not accommodate a beach, swimming or kayaking experience (either because they are too rocky or too windy). This spot on Lochabar Bay allows for all of those so if you're wanting a low-key vacation with lots of relaxation and natural beauty, this is the perfect spot! It was hard to leave after 10 days because it was truly already feeling like "HomeAway."

Beautiful home in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

My three generation family of five, including two children under 5, spent the month of January in this beautiful home. It provided everything we could have hoped for: spacious and comfortable living areas and bedrooms with big windows, well equipped kitchen, screened porch with a view of the water, and deck with an expansive view of the bluest, clearest Caribbean water you could ever hope to see.

This was our fourth winter in the Bahamas, our first trip to Long Island, and this house and Lochabar beach exceeded every one of our expectations. The white sand beach provided peaceful walks in both directions, accented by a few rocky areas at low tide for interest. Our beach time was mostly private, and we were happy to chat with the few other beach walkers as we passed by. My recurring thought as I kayaked to each of the barrier islands and past the blue hole to the shallow waters to the south was that this was a huge, blue, clear swimming pool. We found literally dozens of perfectly intact sand dollars, as well as conch and other shells by the hundreds. Kayaks are provided and being out on the water was a highlight for us.

This house and location are perfect for those seeking relaxation in a stunning natural setting and have no need for shopping, crowds, and nightlife. The house is near enough to a couple of restaurants at the Marina a short drive away, and to groceries and notable island sites, such as Dean’s Blue Hole and Hamilton’s Caves. We visited multiple other beaches and made a day trip to the north that included Columbus Point and the well known Cape Santa Maria. We were also able to rent a boat from the owner of Under the Sun just up the road and spend a day on the water.

Ron is a very conscientious owner, and the rental process was easy and smooth. He was quickly responsive to every email. I highly recommend this rental property. Five stars.

Without question best 3 bedroom rental on the island

  • 5 of 5

Very similar to a previous review from John, my husband and I have travelled the various family islands for over 20 years. We agree whole heartily with his review, so no need to repeat! I will add that we have rented everything from roadside apartments to elaborate homes depending on who is accompanying us. Long Island itself has a great selection of beaches, local flavour, DIY bonefishing as well as available experienced guides, and overall a great family, friends or fishermen's dream. We prefer the central area of Deadman's Cay and south as the pace is slower than the north. Ron's home is without a doubt the most well maintained and spacious we have ever rented. Whether you are star gazing on the front sea side veranda, or having quiet time in the screened in room there is plenty of space to spread out. We even had our grandson (11 months old) down and he enjoyed exploring all the open space, and ron's coffee table was an instant hit! The owner is very meticulous and the home is well maintained and we respected the care taken into its upkeep, and used it as if it were our own. We had an exceptional month visit, and feel privileged to have been able to stay at this home. Top notch, and do not hesitate to recommend.

Great house! Great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 adults, 2 adult children, 2 teens) just got back from Long Island and stayed in this house. We loved that every bedroom had it's own bath. The screened porch was also a big hit. We enjoyed playing cards and reading on the screened porch. The house was clean and well taken care of. The Beach was a short walk down the private path. Excellent views from all the rooms as well. If you are looking for a place to stay near Clarence Town you should just book this house, you will not be disappointed.
