Clean, calm, beautiful gardens, small beach with kayaks you can take out to small cays nearby. Responsive host who grew up on the island and can give great recommendations and insights.

Great location for exploring the island, only an hour drive to the north end and a little more to the south end. We got to 17 beaches, each one unique, in 18 days, and only once had other people on the beach with us for 5 minutes. (This was in late June). The Bahamians we met were kind and helpful to us.

We love the Family Islands, but have found you have to be prepared for more surprises and things not working the way we're used to (we're from a city in the US). We did NOT find that to be the case at C Shells-- everything worked well and communication was smooth and easy.

Staying at C-Shells was great. It is in a great location on Long Island. Close to the grocery store and right on the beach. Cheryl and Jorge are amazing hosts! The rooms are perfect - the kitchen is stocked with what you need to cook at home. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while on vacation.

Great accommodations! This was our fourth time staying here and each trip was fantastic. Cheryl and Jorge are great hosts. It was another great escape from the Canadian winter.

Great swimming. Great fishing and great sight-seeing. Long Island is an undiscovered gem.

We were not sure about what to expect in vacationing in Long Island and staying at C Shells. We had read the reviews of peoples experiences but of course, not everyone's experiences will all be as great as they say. It ended up that our 8 days at C Shells far exceeded what those other reviews said and Long Island is the type of place that we love to look for. Quiet and relaxing. Cheryl is a sweetheart and the Guest Quarters is the perfect little headquarters to explore and experience the island. The people of Long Island are so hospitable, friendly and polite. We can't wait for next year to return. It's going to be real hard to stay away until then.

Thank you so much Cheryl for a memorable vacation in Salt Pond. We were thrilled with our cozy apt. in Tent Bay. Although you were full at c-shells you offered us this apartment in Tent Bay that you manage for the owner. What an awesome place to stay. The apartment was cozy and very clean. We loved all the island decorations. The views of the sea from the apartment were amazing. Cheryl was very attentive and a wonderful host. A huge thanks for helping us load our pictures on the computer. I highly recommend this rental. We will return :)

Beautifully furnished studio accommodations with all the amenities. Cheryl and Jorge are wonderful hosts who bend over backwards to make sure your stay is all you want it to be. The only thing I needed was my swimsuit, sunblock and bug spray.

An incredible value for the amenities.

C Shells is conveniently located in the midst of Long Island with easy access to all the great beaches and attractions.

A rental car is a great idea.

There is a grocery store within a few minutes drive to stock your pantry and restaurants in abundance.

Be sure to try the fresh conch salad at a roadside stand just south of Deadman's Cay.

The beach at C Shells is great for a dip but bring some beach shoes for the rocks you may encounter. The water is clear, warm and delightful.

After visiting a few islands in the Bahamas I must admit that none could surpass
C Shells in care and customer service in lodging.

Well done Cheryl and Jorge.

Cheers.

New fully furnished private apt. with a wonderful private beach, private parking, and a perfect quiet location just in the middle of the (long) island...what else?
Cheryl, the supernice owner, 24/7 available to help her guests to get the best from their staying at Bahamas.
Last but not least, very competitive rates!

Our 9th visit to Long Island. First sailed there in 2006 and fell in love with the island and its people. Since 2008 we have stayed at C Shells because it just doesn't get any better... location, location, location, comfortable and well appointed accommodations. All that AND such reasonable rental rates. One can walk from one side of the island to the other in 15 minutes. Early risers can catch the sun rise and sunset on the same day. Cheryl and Jorge are simply the icing on top of this tropical cake.... we came as guests and left as friends. See you next year :)

First off, all I can say is WOW. This was our first time on Long Island and we picked C Shells because of the central location, Price and the reviews we read online. But we were very please from the moment we got there and saw this place. It sits beautifully landscaped beach front property. We spent 10 days on long island. We loved mornings there having coffee sitting on our private porch or sitting on the beach and the beautiful sunset evenings sitting by a fire on the beach with just us, we actually felt like it was ours. The villa we stayed in was spacious with a full kitchen and all the cookware and dishes you need. We brought our own food so this was a plus. There are only 4 villas so crowds are not a problem. The place itself is wonderful but what really makes it incredible are Cheryl and Jorge. Such a wonderful couple, they do a fantastic job taking care of the place. They knew how to be perfect host, There for you if you need anything. They made us feel like we were friends visiting rather than just customers renting a villa. We got married on the Island and when Cheryl found this out she actually stopped what she was doing, Jumped in her car, to go get flowers from her sister’s house so she could make Mary a Bahamian wedding bouquet. Truly a special place for sure. I am always fair when I give feedback, pointing out the good and bad. But I can truly say it would be impossible for me to find anything bad about this place. If you’re looking for seclusion, Peace and wonderful hosts then this is the place.

Chris and Mary
