Bennetts Harbor house description

Seabreeze Bahamas is located on the beautiful white sand beach in Bennett's Harbour, at the northern end of Cat Island. The house is perfect for a family...or two! The house is literally on the sand, with the water 50 feet from the back door. The water is calm with a sandy bottom, making it safe for kids of all ages.

Satellite TV, a DVD player, lots of movies, video games, board games, puzzles, books and an iPod stereo system are available to help you relax. There are two sea kayaks and lots of masks and snorkels for you to use. There is a full gourmet kitchen with small stores nearby for staples. Many restaurants on the island for a taste of local Bahamian cooking.

Cat Island appeals to those who travel not just to see new landscapes, but also to gain a new perspective on living. You will feel welcomed by the friendly people on this southern Bahamian island.

Discover a peaceful hideaway that evokes a familiar charm, as if to say, 'Welcome Home!'

Bonefishing~ Cat Island offers many ideal spots for bonefishing. Local guides are available, if you like, to point you in the right direction by boat, or on foot. Anglers can quietly stalk these elusive fish by wading through knee-deep water. These quicksilver fighters, weighing up to 15 pounds, inspire both fly fishermen and spin casters alike with their power and speed. Unpredictable and wily, the bonefish are often found in schools of 50 or more, making for exciting bursts of action. With Bennett's Creek leading to Alligator point just up the beach, you'll have miles of wadable flats right outside the patio door. Orange Creek offer expansive flats lined with mangroves. There is a tide clock at the house to help you plan your day of angling.

Scuba Diving~ There are two dive centers on Cat Island. One at Shannas Cove, about 20 minutes North of Seabreeze. The other is down South at Hawk's Nest, about 1 1/2 hours from Seabreeze.

Top Dive Locations:
First Basin Wall: 100-200ft. Facing the Great Bahamas Bank is a spectacular deep water drop-off. Its proximity to the deep ocean provides many encounters with schooling jacks, Eagle Rays and, occasionally, sharks.

Blue Hole: 80-100ft. Out on the bank is a magnificent Blue Hole. Inside the opening divers often encounter schools of fish, large groupers and Caribbean Reef Sharks. White Hole Reef expresses another phenomenon peculiar to The Bahamas: circular depressions in the limestone basin that form flat basins surrounded by coral mounds. These sites serve as an oasis for solitary reef and schooling fish.

White Hole Reef: Circular depressions in the limestone basin surrounded by coral mounds

The Tunnels: 30ft. The Tunnels can be reached from the beach. They begin in very shallow water and descend through a series of crevices, canyons and fissures to a coral garden

Third Basin Reef: Wall 110-130ft. Nearly vertical drop-off with giant sponges and black

Exploring the North Shore~ Several roads lead to the North shore where you will find bits of flotsum that have blown in from the Atlantic. Garbage to some, treasure to others and a fun place to see the crashing waves on the beach while searching for seashells.
.
.
Blue Holes~ There are many lakes and Blue Holes on Cat Island, some are filled with fresh water and some salt. There are many tales of the mermaids who live in them and pirates who disappeared.
.
.
Bat Caves~ There are at least 18 caves on Cat Island that you can explore. The easiest to find are on the main road about 5 miles south of Seabreeze, or on Dicky road in Orange Creek.
.
.
Rake n Scrape~ A music festival in Arthur's Town, heald the first weekend in June where famous musicians come from all over the Bahamas to play, and the party goes all night.
.
.
Regatta~ A sailing race and party that lasts for three days the first weekend in August. Also known as 'homecoming' it's a time when families come back to Cat Island for cook outs and togetherness.
.
.
Getting There: There are two airports on Cat Island. Arthur's Town (ATC) is only 15 minutes away from our home at Bennett's Harbour, and New Bight (TBI) is about 45 minutes away to the south. You can arrange for pick-up by taxi with, Danny King (242) 354-5088 from either airport. Flights are available from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida USA or Nassau / New Providence, Bahamas.

Car: Recommended

Bennett's Harbour is at the northern end of Cat Island, 15 minutes south of Arthur's Town. The house faces west, right on the sugar sand beach, giving you a spectacular sunset every night and a chance to see the green flash. Seabreeze on the calm and protected leeward side of the island, and is in a picturesque natural harbour. There is no coral on the beach, only soft pink/white sand on a secluded beach making it safe for all ages.

Please go to our website at www.seabreezebahamas.com for a more detailed map.

Other Activities: Relaxing on the beach, lounging in a hammock on the gazebo, bonefishing, paddling the creek in sea kayaks, exploring bat caves, hiking to the Blue hole at Orange Creek and exploring the untamed northshore. Be sure to bring your iPod and kindle and plan to RELAX! If all else fails fire up the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction machine and enjoy the sunset from the 35' native stone patio.
