  • Paradise found

    "Stressed? Need to get away-from-it-all? Then Seaturtle Treehouse on Green Turtle Cay is the place for you to relax, unwind and nourish your soul. The owners, Susan and Tim were great. They answered all of our questions, emailed during our stay and really helped us out when there was a bit of confusion on our part about logistics. The property managers, Michael and Jennifer of Abaco Breeze Properties could not have been more helpful. They met us at the ferry dock to take us to the property and became our friends on the island. The treehouse is located in a serene and private setting on the calm Sea of Abaco. Metal and wood beams and glass walls provide architectural interest to this handsome two story octagonal structure. The living area is on the upper level with fantastic views and access to the wrap around deck from every room. The home is very clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with high-quality linens. The recently remodeled kitchen is beautiful and equipped with everything you need for your stay. We appreciated the games, books and DVDs and had a blast without tv. The screened-in lower level, with chaise lounges, swing chairs and a bonus dining area, is the perfect place to bring-on your zen, whatever that might be for you. The walkway leads to a shared dock on the sea. Overnight rental boat mooring and fishing is not permitted, but it was great to be able to swim and snorkel right from the dock. We have traveled a lot and are now spoiled by GTC. The island is undeveloped and naturally beautiful. Snorkling was fantastic. But above all else, the people were so warm. We especially enjoyed the food and friendly staff McIntosh's restaurant - we thought the food portions and quality were better than served at a local fancy-schmancy restaurant. Sunset marine boat rental family and staff could not have been nicer. Kool Karts golf cart rental folks were great. We found our paradise!!"

    "We stayed at Ed and Lisa's condo after finally getting to go across we had a great time. The unit was very clean and well equipped local people were help full in getting us around town when needed. Boat slip was accommodating for our 31 foot boat and access was easy. I would recommend anyone heading over to stay. Thank you Ed and Lisa for being so patient with us getting over and allowing us to keep our reservations. Thank you once again Shawn Biederman"

  • Simply the Best

    "I've rented very many properties but never felt so welcome or had such a great time as I did here. The cheery wooden building has an upstairs with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There’s another en-suite bedroom downstairs and a useful half-bath/laundry room. The house has everything you need from well equipped kitchen to fast internet connection. Outside is a large deck with table, chairs, deck chairs and a comfortable sofa. A few feet away is the lovely white sand beach. I’d say the location is the best on the island and Jody and Tara are building a second house next door. They were away on our arrival day so Jody’s lovely mum showed us to the house and helped us with supplies. His dad popped round later to check we were settling in okay. Spanish Wells and Russell Island can be explored with the golf cart. It fits perfectly with the laidback feel of the place and allows the friendly locals time to wave as they pass. There's always something to do on the beach, you can snorkel off it, enjoy the sea kayaks with a trip to the small rocky islands opposite the house, go walking or shelling or get your camera out or just relax on the loungers under the warm Bahamian sun. After dark there’s an excellent view of the Milky Way. We had everything from windy and stormy to pleasant and calm, it all added interest and didn't stop us doing anything we wanted. If you wish to go a little further afield take a short boat ride to Eleuthera and watch the Atlantic crash into the Caribbean at the Glass Window then take a drive to see caves, rock pools and beaches. The ferries from the other side of Eleuthera will take you to Harbour Island. Snorkelling in the warm waters around Spanish Wells or on Devil's Backbone reef is a must, they’re teaming with interesting sea life for you to look at. Then there's Jody and Tara, two of the nicest, most generous people you’ll ever meet. Nothing is too much trouble, they just want you to have a great holiday. The lobster tails they welcomed us with were only topped by Jody's enviable skill with a bbq. Let's just say that Jody was also a big help with our day trips, the result being a brilliant and totally stress free holiday. You might arrive as strangers, but you'll leave as friends. Thank you Jody and Tara. I can pay this place no greater compliment than to say I want to go back. If you want to rent a relaxing slice of paradise from a couple of completely trustworthy and decent people, stop looking, you just found it."

  • our second home

    "This was our 2nd year visiting Seastar. We were there 2 weeks and took a vacation within our vacation by flying to Eleuthera for a couple days. As always, we loved our stay at Seastar. Chat n chill is a great place to visit on Sunday, as that is the pig roast day! We rented a boat this time and explored the waterways and did some great snorkeling. I am sure I am addicted to cracked chicken from Charlie's at fish fry too. Plenty to do in the off season If you are adventurous. We are just glad the weather held out again in the peak of hurricane season!"

Cat Island Travel Tips

Getting to Cat Island Vacation Rentals

Cat Island is the sixth largest island in the Bahamas. It is located just southeast of Eleuthera Island and approximately 130 miles from Nassau. To get to Cat Island, you will need to travel via Nassau. There are daily connections from Miami, Atlanta and most major hubs in North America. To get from Nassau to Cat Island, you can get one of the domestic flights that operate five times a week. Depending on the day of your arrival, you may need to stay overnight in Nassau either on your outbound or inbound journey. Because of its distance from the other islands in the Bahamas, there are no scheduled ferry or boat services to Cat Island. There are many air charter companies in the Bahamas and they will provide you with flights whenever you require them, depending on favorable weather conditions.

Cat Island Travel Seasons

Located just off the Tropic of Capricorn, Cat Island enjoys a warm tropical climate. There is little difference in the temperature ranges between summer and winter. Winter though tends to be a little less rainy and humid. The months of November through May are therefore a popular time of year to visit. The days and nights are still blissfully warm without being stiflingly hot and humid. Unfortunately, Cat Island is on the far Atlantic side of the Caribbean and therefore exposed to tropical storms that occur in the late summer months. Hurricanes can occur any time between June and October so if you plan to travel during this time of year, you must be aware of weather warnings and travel advisories.

Things to Do near Cat Island Resorts

One of Cat Island’s greatest attractions is its beautiful beaches. The soft pink sands stretch for miles along the coastline. There are small secluded coves that provide private picnic and snorkeling spots dotted all along the coast. Take a leisurely stroll along the beachfront or spend the day working on your tan. Even in season, the beaches are rarely overcrowded so you can enjoy the tropical without too much disruption. Some beaches are used and maintained by private resorts. A few of the more popular public beaches are New Bight Beach, Fountain Bay Beach and Fernandez Bay Village Beach.

Scuba divers can sign up for dives at one of the many professional dive centers on Cat Island. When the weather is good, there are daily charters that head out to the reefs. If you prefer to snorkel, you can join up with one of the cruise excursions that head out to the reefs to see the marine life.

Cat Island is famous as being the childhood home of Sir Sidney Portier. His old home is located in South Bight and can be visited. The Mt. Alvernia Hermitage is a monastery located on the island’s highest point. It was built in the early 1900s and has a series of hand-carved stone steps leading up to it.
