A Slice of Paradise!
This was our 4th stay at Whistling Duck and we are so glad that we returned to this fabulous spot. The cottage is just as described and pictured. We stayed for 2 weeks and could have stayed longer. Communication with the new owners was excellent. The information they include with the cottage is plentiful and current. The property manager has much to share also, as she is a native to the island. Spend some time chatting with these lovely people. We experienced long sunny days and were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves and cooled by the breezes. The starry nights are amazing-do not miss them! We were sorry to leave and know that we will return to Whistling Duck!

Great cottage with a beautiful view
Stayed mid February for 9 nights. It was our second trip and wont be our last. The cottage is on the water with a beautiful view and a small beach area. Its very clean and nice with a deck and porches to enjoy the views. The owners were very helpful and there if we needed anything. Dont hesitate to rent this property if your looking! We are already trying to figure out when we can get back to the island!

A Most Peaceful and Relaxing Cottage
My husband Don and I have had the pleasure of visiting Whistling Duck ten times over the past several years. It is a happy place for us for sure!! Awesome location on the lovely Clarencetown Harbor, which is protected by a reef. The kayaking is so fun, and there is a blue hole on the neighboring beach which allows for much exploration. The cottage is blissful, with views of the sea from every window. It includes two porches, one off the bedroom and one off of the living room. Sunrises are wonderful viewed from the front porch, and the stars are brilliant at night. The Whistling Ducks are plentiful and if you are lucky you will see Sea Turtles. The outdoor shower is my favorite, looking out over the ocean. The cottage has a full kitchen and is very homey. We highly recommend Whistling Duck!

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is a 20-minute drive from Deadmans Cay airport and in a neighborhood of other fine homes. Flowers and palm trees line the roadside to the cottage. The nearest town is Clarence Town which is only 1.5 miles from the cottage. Medical clinics are located nearby. There are several island restaurants, a small store and bars located nearby in town. Local made fresh baked bread and other treats may be purchased at Ericas Bakery store close to town. Local people are family friendly and eager to provide answers to your questions. Items of interest are 2 blue holes, one at Deans Blue Hole (Turtle Cove) with one located right at the end of Lochabar Point Beach which is a short walk along the beautiful sand.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
How to get here? Your airline of choice to Nassau (NAS) then fly into Deadmans Cay (LGI). Airlines servicing Long Island are Bahamasair, Southern Air Charter, and also private charters such as Island Wings. Set up a car rental beforehand to provide access around the island and transportation to the cottage. We will provide exact driving directions. On Google Maps the entrance to both cottages can be found by searching for “32RW+R4Q Clarence Town, The Bahamas”. *Important* Deadmans Cay is the main airport on Long Island closest to the cottage. The other airport (Stella Maris - SML) is about an hour drive further away. Some flights to Long Island stop at both airports in a variable order, make sure you get off at the right one. *Tips* If you have a tight connection through Nassau, be sure to use the lane at customs for “connecting passengers” (left side) which is normally much faster. Flights between Nassau and Long Island may need to be booked and ticketed separately from other flights. Even if you’re flying on Bahamas Air from Miami to Nassau then Long Island, Bahamas Air sometimes requires two separate tickets: MIA-NAS, then NAS-LGI. For this reason, travel sites like Expedia may not be able to find connecting flights to Long Island from anywhere other than Nassau. While both Bahamas Air and Southern Air may have 2 flights daily to and from Long Island, Bahamas Air is a larger airline with larger planes (50 vs 19 passengers).
