  • Fantastic Rental!!!!

    "I absolutely loooooove this cottage! It's wonderful for a family or group of friends, as you all have enough privacy and can still have family areas to relax together! We loved having breakfast in the kitchen and I had such a peaceful time reading my book on the second floor patio with my coffee. The property management team is awesome and definitely will look out for you. This island is a wonderful and I couldn't be happier with the accommodations! My only regret - I didn't stay longer....oh well time to plan another trip there!!!"

  • must enjoy at least once in a lifetime

    "We vacationed at this property for one week in July 2014; the owner has set this up to be trouble free from airport pick up to amenities, to local arrangements for entertainment and fun; The home and the feeling of the home are much better than what one can imagine by looking at photographs; all that is listed and more is available at the house; bedding is super comfortable, loved the main kithen/living room full windows toward the sound and the amazing views and freedom you get when your eyes first see it in the morning; it is the best way I found to start my day; kids loved it and time did go by slower than most other vacations we took; Peter is the caretaker of the house locally and he is very nice; word of advice is to define your requirements as far as his regular visits at the onset; the island spirit is so friendly that Peter will drop in otherwise almost daily to check on you; the welcome dinner was truly home cooked and wouldnt have traded it for anything else. Bring supplies from the states; the local population lives off the price difference between states-prices and locally charged prices therefore it gets really expensive; we would go back in a heart beat as all this gives some really sweet local flavor. DO RENT THE SUV THAT IS OFFERED TO YOU AS YOU WILL NEED A CAR TO MOVE AROUND. Thank you for Don!"

  • Sunsets, snorkeling, and serenity!!

    "My husband and I recently returned from our first visit to Eleuthera and had the pleasure of staying at Tequila Sunset. This beautiful home is on a great lot with direct beach access just a few steps away and is in the middle of this wonderful cove. The water was a beautiful turquoise color and crystal clear, which made for some wonderful snorkeling and shell collecting. I even found some pretty cool pieces of sea glass. The Caribbean side is so calm and peaceful, perfect for using the kayaks to explore the amazing rocky edges of the bluff and for some unbelievable ocean scenery. There is an awesome bench seat along the very short walkway to the private little beach that is perfect for enjoying some breathtaking sunsets, a nice beverage, or to just sit and let all your stress and cares drift away. Be sure to have plenty of bug repellant with you…the no-see-ums can be no joke! The house was immaculate and the pictures are very accurate, although it’s hard to truly capture the spaciousness and openness of this wonderful home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything a family would need to prepare their own meals. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and dining/living room which would be perfect for a large gathering. Since it was just me and my husband, we loved sitting at the bar height bistro table in the kitchen next to the window, enjoying the spectacular ocean view. We did a lot of cooking ourselves, but went in to Gregory Town one night and ate at Unca Gene’s. The food was wonderful and everyone we talked to was very friendly and always willing to offer tips and advice on the best beaches. Twin Sister’s was one of our favorite for snorkeling around the two rock formations. Preacher’s Cave and Tay Bay Beach were an easy drive from the house and should definitely be on the list of things to see. Wallace, the property manager, made sure that the a/c and fans were turned on before we arrived, making the house quite comfortable for us. He also came by later on that day to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed and also provided quite a bit of useful information. We could not have had a better first trip to Eleuthera or in our dealings with the owners! Rena was always quick in responding to all of my emails and such a pleasure to work with during the entire rental process. We are looking forward to our next visit already!!"

  • Memorable Anniversary

    "We consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to rent this beautiful home during Memorial Day Week for our 35th wedding anniversary. We brought my daughter and her boyfriend and we had a memorable vacation. The location across from Rainbow Beach was perfect. Although the days were gorgeous, the night skies were incredible. The stars were so bright and we even saw shooting stars the first night. The kids even did night snorkeling. The house had all the amenities we needed which included WIFI (which we really did not need but used anyway to obtain local knowledge). The TV wasn't turned on once as there was plenty to see and do without it. The caretaker, Freddy was great and we learned he is a big part of the local history. We would definitely make a return trip."

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.

It the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet and restful vacation. Of course, there are loads of outdoor activities and beautiful pink sand beaches on the island. Visitors can explore the rolling hills and nature trails and amble along the beautiful beaches. Scuba diving enthusiasts are attracted by the colorful reefs, great diving conditions and abundance of marine life.
