Two Bedroom Home With Third Separate Apartment Located On Beautiful Beach
About Sue Maring
Our names are Mike and Sue Maring. We own and operate a winery/vineyard in Lowville, New York. Our only free time is in the winter months, hence deciding to own property in the Bahamas. We still like to travel to other places with our grown daughters Crystal and Marissa, so we do offer our home as an exchange also.
Sue Maring purchased this House in 1999
Why Sue Maring chose Clarence Town
We love Long Island because it has beautiful white sand beaches with no one on them! The water is absolutely the most crystal clear and gorgeous color of anywhere in the world! It spoils us to swim anywhere else! We love the fact there are no tourists here, just mostly people from Canada or the states that own winter homes. The local people are very friendly, but you don't have peddlers bothering you. They don't exist on this Island. It's just a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere.
What makes this House unique
There are no high rise condos, no casinos, no traffic lights, just unspoiled beauty.

Great location. Property is exactly as described online. Air conditioning works great, but the house is incredibly well ventilated with all the windows open. Clean, great landscaping, and incredible view. House is walking distance to the marina (about a mile), which is the nicest marina I’ve seen in the Bahamas. Good food there and lots of fish to check out when the sportfishers clean their catch. Check out Tiny’s and Max’s. Max’s has great conch fritters
From the moment I walked in to the house I felt my blood pressure drop, and my mind flashed on Robinson Crusoe. I immediately turned to my wife and told her we made a mistake, we should have booked longer.. much longer...which we did for next year before we even left. I think that pretty much says about everything. Our days started with a cup of joe on the deck overlooking beautiful Lochabar Bay, a little breakfast and then off to explore a new beach everyday. Private beaches and sun kissed days... it doesn't get any better than that. Very nice house in a very private setting.
Upon arrival we were immediately relaxed at the casual feel of the house and the magnificent view from the deck, of the beautiful turquoise water. We had all the amenities we needed, plus a warm outdoor shower which was a pleasant surprise. Ernest was very kind and called to make sure we were enjoying our stay at the house. Being only a stone's throw from the the waters edge gave us the opportunity to swim everyday, take walks on nearby Lochabar Beach and kayak across the bay over to the barrier islands. We did enjoy exploring other parts of Long Island, taking a tour of Hamilton's Cave with Leonard Cartwright and going fishing with Locksley to catch our dinner, however most of our time was spent at the house, as we found that it was our favorite place to be.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Maring's Beach House which accommodated 2 adult couples perfectly. The house is beautifully and privately located overlooking the incredible Bahama blue water. The house was clean, comfortable and well furnished. It is a great location for beach walking, swimming, kayaking and exploring the island. Many thanks to the Marings for sharing their home.

Thank you so much Jim and Liz! So glad you had a good time!
Beautiful private property. Stunning beaches. Very clean. Easy access to Clarence Town for food and restaurants. Great access to beaches on both coasts. Highly recommended if you want to wind down in some peace and quiet.
Great Value and Best location on the island.
We just returned from a great Thanksgiving week vacation and already planning to return soon. The house was great and the location is one of the best on the island. After driving from one end of the island to the other and everywhere in between, we couldn't be happier with our choice of where to stay. There is nothing fancy about the house but thats what gives it the true island vibe that we were looking for. Great views, comfortable breezes, and the sounds of the waves on the rocks. The layout was great as well and with the daybeds in the living room, you can lounge around and even use them for extra bunks if needed. The wood beamed tent ceilings and some local artwork were nice touches on the interior. The property manager Ernest was a great host and gave us some good local knowledge as well. We have travelled to almost every island in the Bahamas and they all have a different feel. This was our second trip to Long Island and it definitely ranks high on the list. If you want to get away from the tourists and the crowds, this is the place. It is a relatively undiscovered gem with some of the nicest resident islanders you are going to meet.
Thank you so much! So glad you had a good time!
We have two bikes and two kayaks for your use.
