I surprised my wife for Christmas this year with the opportunity to meet her pen pal she has had for almost 45 years. They have never met in person until this visit in April 2017. They both had a great time, and loved every minute they shared together, and some of that time was at the C-Shells Guest Quarters. Andrea is from Long Island and still lives there. The quarters were exceptionally clean and came with all the amenities you need for your stay, plus the amazing views of the Caribbean. Cheryl was an amazing host and was so generous with her time, and knowledge of the Island. We would absolutely recommend the C-Shells for your stay in Long Island.

Room Tip: All suites are nice with great views.

A theme for many of the review for C Shells seems to be, our second time, coming for years, its our third time staying with Cheryl and Jorge. It’s with good reason!

Cheryl and Jorge are wonderful hosts and really go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable. Centrally located on Long Island C Shells is the perfect base for a get away vacation. Miles of deserted beaches, great fishing, snorkeling, diving, and the friendliest people in the Bahamas Long Island is not to be missed.

The spotlessly clean rooms offer everything you need with a small patio and galley kitchen. Steps from the water perfect for morning coffee or happy hour with can’t miss sunsets.

Our second visit in as many years to Long Island and C Shells with our friends who have been coming here for more than 10 years. This year was for nearly a month. This is a perfect place for us. Each villa is self contained with fully equipped kitchen and access to gas BBQ that allows guests to easily prepare as many meals as they wish. Each unit enjoys a seaside patio for morning coffee only a few steps from the beach. Units are extremely comfortable and clean with full bathroom and comfy beds. Hosts Cheryl and Jorge make you feel welcome and at home. They are quick to provide information on places to go and things to do. A fun, friendly and casual atmosphere. Every sunset is spectacular and finds guests gathering on the beach for cocktails and conversation.
Located centrally on the island with easy access to groceries, wine/beer/liquor, beaches, site seeing, hikes, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboard said and restaurants. We wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

Room Tip: 4 guest quarters, the fifth is occupied by the owners. All units on ground level with awesome views, easy beach access similarly outfitted.

We enjoyed another perfect vacation at C Shells. The rooms are an ideal size and layout for a couple or family. Always clean, bright and airy with kitchen utensils, cook ware, extra linens and even beach towels. Everything you need for a few weeks away. There are laundry machines on site along with all kinds of relaxation amenities, hammocks, beach chairs, kayak and campfire on the beach. The property is beautiful with mature trees, all kinds of flowers that seem to be always in bloom and a sandy beach on a calm harbor, perfect for swimming, cooling off, sunbathing and especially watching the sunset across the ocean. The owners Cheryl and Jorge are the perfect hosts; Always there to answer questions about everything on the island but very respectful of your peace and quiet. C Shells is perfectly located close to a grocery store, gas station and several great restaurants. Long Island has the most beautiful beaches, friendliest people and a great assortment of restaurants.

Room Tip: The very friendly owner will reply to emails promptly and offer great advice on things like car rentals or directions.
