Casa De La Playa is on the beach in Lochabar Bay at Clarence Town Harbor, Long Island, Bahamas within sight of nearby cays and the Flying Fish Marina in a quiet tropical setting overlooking a beautiful mile long white powder beach. This house is built at the waters edge and you can see the water from almost anywhere in the house. The 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 situated between our beach and the Atlantic Ocean reduce surges and provide us with a gently sloping, sandy beach free of currents and undertows for most of the year. The calm water and long beach make this a classic. The Lochabar Blue Hole is less than a half mile away. This is a perfect place for a tranquil and quiet vacation, yet only less than 4 miles from a number of bars & restaurants in the Clarence Town/Turnbull Area.

About Stefan Knowles
I grew up in the Settlement of Mangrove Bush, Long Island where I completed Primary and Secondary School. I then went to University and graduated from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering. I currently live in Nassau and visit Long Island at least once a month.
Stefan Knowles purchased this House in 2014
Why Stefan Knowles chose Long Island
This house was designed and built by myself with the help of my construction team. My father purchased this property in the early 1970's and I've spent many holidays/weekends on Lochabar beach and fishing in the Harbour. I've also spent many days sailing in the harbour with friends and family either for fun or during the various regattas that are held here on holiday weekends. I decided to build my home in Lochabar because of the nice ocean breeze, the quietness, peace and of course the beach! You will enjoy your stay!
What makes this House unique
The views from the Living/Dining Rooms, Kitchen and Master Bedroom are breath taking. You can relax on the porch and listen to the waves gently wash up on the beach. You can also listen to the various species of birds sing their choruses.

Great value, great view, great location.
House is very well built and designed, open concept kitchen and common area make for easy group hosting. House is right on the beach so easy access to swimming and beach combing. Shady Balcony has a great clear view of the ocean with gentle breeze during the day (in March 2018). Ceiling fans in all rooms, covered parking, outdoor shower and hose for sandy feet was great. Stefan was very easy to reach for communication.
Clarence Town, the capital of Long Island and the main harbor on the east coast of Long Island, is one of the prettiest settlements in the Bahamas. It is home to Sts. Peter & Paul's Catholic Church on one hill and St. Paul's Anglican Church on the other. They were both designed and built in the late 1800's 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's 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.
