Pared down barefoot luxury awaits you at Simplicity on Wilson Bay. Recently built to the highest standards, our house was deliberately designed to capture the prevailing winds with high bamboo ceilings, ceiling fans, French doors and plenty of windows that are usually open, making air conditioning redundant. Both bedrooms have oceanside French doors to the deck and are located in private wings. The spacious great room with ample seating, indoor dining and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen opens to the large screened deck integrating indoor/outdoor spaces.
The large garapa wood deck has a 'mosquito curtain' that allows you to draw it shut for those times when the noseeums are pesky. Evenings are spent enjoying the setting sun, pehaps even seeing the elusive green flash. Paradise!
We strove to make this Bahamian beach house more open than closed up to fully enjoy the sense of being here. Total living area under cover is over 1800 sq feet. Even during the infrequent rain, the large deck is still enjoyable.
Come and enjoy.
Cat Island is known for it's excellent fishing - both deep sea and bonefishing. For bonefishing Bennett's Creek is a short kayak ride away or an easy walk, Orange Creek is approx. 15 minutes north for more nearby bonefishing options. We can recommend various fishing guides. Fruit trees and various vegetables have been planted - you are welcome to enjoy the 'fruits of our labour'.
The 'Rev' will likely show up weekly, peddling produce from his pick up truck , Also our neighbour, Danny King who lives across the highway will often have vegetables for sale.
There are a number of small grocery/convenience stores located a short drive away for all your staples.
Cat Island offers the adventurous traveller opportunities to explore beaches, ( we can tell you our favourite sea glass hunting spot), check out the caves and blue holes A must is a visit to the 'highest point in the Bahamas', the Hermitage.
For Scuba divers, Shanna's Cove is about 20 minutes to the north whereas Greenwood is a good hour to the south.
A small reef is located just to the right of our house and is easily accessible from the beach. We have plenty of snorkel equipment plus three kayaks for your use.
For flights to Cat island, there are 2 airports. New Bight in the south and approx 45 minutes from our house or Arthur's Town which is a quick 10 minutes transfer. Currently, the only scheduled flights to Cat Island are via N|assau. You should allow a minimum of 3 hours connection time in Nassau. For flights returning to the US. customs is precleared in Nassau.
We strongly recommend SkyBahamas. SkyBahamas flies twice daily between Nassau and Cat Island serving both airports Arthur's Town being the closest - skybahamas.net.
Cat Island is a quiet island, do not expect night life, shopping or a plethora of dining choices. What the island does offer are the friendliest people, gorgeous beaches, some wonderful nearby restaurants, giving the opportunity to enjoy the 'art of simplicity.'
