Property description

You'll fall in love with this beautiful 1,400 sq ft. five-room stone house, located directly on the leeward side of a gorgeous, secluded beach. This two-bedroom home is positioned among many palm trees, just steps from one of the prettiest pristine beaches you'll ever see. The beach gradually extends -- coral free -- into the blue water. Farther offshore are reefs that are perfect for fishing, scuba diving or snorkeling. Tanks may be filled at request.
This home sleeps four, and has two bedrooms with king-size beds and one bath. Linens and towels are provided.
The fully-equipped kitchen has a microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker. and washing machine. The living room has a fireplace, radio, cassette player, CD. TV and VCR, and a large selection of movies. The 42 x 17-foot patio has a gas BBQ and lounge chairs, and is perfect for sunbathing. Included with the house are 2 kayaks, perfect to take into our creek for sea turtle watching and snorkeling.

One of the things which Cat Island is known for is it's bone fishing. Don't Miss It!! A vehicle is available for rent. There is a cabana located along the shoreline for you to read or nap under. Perfect for watching the children or watching the setting sun.
This is an ideal holiday destination for couples or families.

Beautiful House on Secluded Beach...


Owner info

About the owner: When we came to this island for a vacation in 1970 and immediately feel in love with the beauty of both the island and the people. Over a 15 year period, we built this house ourselves, with the help of some local Cat Islanders. We were lucky enough to be able to collect the beautiful stone indigenous to the island and use it as the structure of our home. We've tried to think of every little detail and have proudly maintained our home in excellent condition. We are happy to share it with others who also appreciate the beauty of the island and its people. Ginny and Richie Henn
