About Lori Rome
We first came to Cat Island in 1999 for our anniversary. We were looking for a place for Rich to go bonefishing but that would also be good for relaxing on the beach with a cocktail. Over the next few years we went to several other island in the Bahamas, but we always came back to Cat Island. It felt more like home. We like to travel with friends, and try to go to Mexico and camping at least once a year, but it's hard when you can hear Cat Island calling your name. We live in the Northwest which allows us to fish for Salmon, Sturgeon, and go crabbing outside Tillamook Bay (where the cheese comes from). We also love going to central Oregon flyfishing on the Deschutes River. Rich enjoys golfing all over the West. I spend most of my free time in my art studio, doing yoga and volunteering at the Doernbecher Childrens Hospital, helping kids do art.
Lori Rome purchased this House in 2007
Why Lori Rome chose Bennett's Harbour
We bought the property in Bennett's Harbour in 2007. As soon as we saw it, we figured that there had to be a way that we could make it work. With the help and unmatched understanding and support of our three boys (Trevor Tyler and Zach~ The greatest kids on earth!) and the help a few friends we were able to build our beachfront dream home. We hope you agree.
What makes this House unique
One of the best things about Cat Island is the people. I have been lots of places, but have never met people who make you feel so welcome and a part of the community as the people on Cat Island. Whether its your first trip or you 20th, you'll feel like you've come home. It's amazing! Be sure to Drive on the left, and wave at everyone you pass on the road. .

Great stay!! Everything we needed!!
Most beautiful beach in the Bahamas. Snorkeling was wonderful!!
All in this home was perfect : View, beach, home, car. The house is very clean.
Perfect in every way
This property is stunning. The view, the amenities and the customer service all exceeded our expectations. The owner, Lori, is so easy to work with and helped make our trip fabulous. We traveled to Cat Island for Christmas 2015. Ricky met us at the airport and he was a wealth of information. We rented Lori's suburban and we loved it. No paperwork to fill out, just get in and go. The house is everything and more than the description states. The kitchen has EVERYTHING! The kitchen is huge. The freezer has an icemaker. There are 2 identical master bedrooms with attached bathrooms. The outside shower was awesome to rinse off the salt water and sand. I doubt there is a nicer property on the island. The thing we loved most about our trip to Cat Island is that there is no one there. We walked 7 miles up the Atlantic side of the island one day and we didn't see a single person. There was a lot of debri and that provided some great treasure hunting. We passed by hundreds of fishing nets and floats and even a shipwrecked sailboat.
Lori gave us a great tip that we are so happy we paid attention to. We took a cooler full of steak, chicken, cheese, butter, etc. Food on the island is extremely expensive. And it's not like the USA where you can run to the closest minimart and get what you need. There are few grocery stores, but they aren't open 24 hours a day, selection is very limited and everything is very expensive. So take some meals with you. It was much more convenient for our large party of 10 to eat our meals at the house rather than to find a restaurant. But if you do choose to find a restaraunt, call in advance to make a reservation.
Back to the property. The beach in front of the house is perfect. The sand is like sugar, the water is pristine, the bay is calm and beautiful. We spent a lot of time in the kayaks, paddling up the little inlet just south of the house. We saw lots of stingrays, turtles and a shark! We used the bbq almost every day.
If you're looking for a vacation away from the crowds, this is the place for you. And Baybreeze far exceeded our expectations.
Slice Of Heaven
Renting this house was definately the way to go. Have been to Cat Island a few times before and always stayed at resorts, but this beautiful house had everything and more. The advantage is you can eat what you want and when you want it, unlike being at the mercy of the resorts for your meals. Ricky the house manager was more than helpful. He was at the airport waiting when we arrived, took care of all our bags (and there were a lot) even checked in on us during the week to see if we needed anything, nice guy. Lori is very easy to work with when booking and everything was as shown on the web site. Very clean, and everything worked (accept wifi out on most of island, not her fault), she even has a rice maker, can you believe it!! Will be coming back next year.
1perfect week at seabreeze house
The information on this house is exactly as presented. But the house is much nicer than the photos show.
I would consider it a luxury accommodation, when compared to any other house that I have rented, for a reasonable price. The owners are spending the money necessary to keep the house looking brand new, and very clean inside and out. It has a very large open kitchen and family room area, that accommodated our 7 people. The kitchen has the best stocked appliances and utensils that I have seen.
The house sits on a horseshoe shaped bay, surrounded by a beautiful sandy beach, and the Caribbean water is generally calm. We had family members from 1 year old to 62 years old, and the water was perfect for all to enjoy.
If you plan on any site seeing while there, you need a car. There are some small food stands nearby, but no stores/restaurants of any size within walking distance. The owners rented us an older suburban, that was clean and ran well. It does have an ignition switch problem. But, we found that if you only turn the ignition off till the tiny drive indicator light goes out, then when you turn the key ON again, it turns easily. If you forget and turn the key all the way Off, then you may spend 5 minutes trying to get the key to turn again. You will want the Suburban if you want to go to the Atlantic ocean, as the roads are bad on that side of the island. You never have to worry about getting lost, as there is only 1 major road that runs the entire length of the island.
The local people are very friendly and accommodating and spoke English. Reverend Johnson stopped by the day we arrived, and had good produce at a reasonable price. We tried to buy their food (local bread, cake and conch salad) and services as much as possible, as they don't have many opportunities to make a living. DaSmoke Pot has good food and a lively rake and scrape band. Grammy's also had good food.
This is the Real, old-fashioned Bahamas. Laid back and no metropolitan atmosphere. Good snorkeling 200 yards away
If you like crystal clear water, sand and sun, then this house is perfect . We are planning an even bigger family vacation for next year, and are planning on renting both houses.
We hired Ricky to take us out in his 19 ft Boston Whaler for a 1 day trip, for some great snorkeling, and the 3 guys then did some lobster fishing with him. If you are a good snorkeler and an adventurist/hunter his spear lobstering was a once in a lifetime trip!
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the house, and our lovely island. Not many people are brave enough to dive with Ricky...one of my favorite things to do! We also love Da Smoke Pot. Renee and Julien are great hosts!
I look forward to hearing from you for your next adventure to Cat Island.
A piece of heaven on earth
We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home on 1 of the most beautiful places we have ever been! We took the whole family including our 2 year old grandaughter over Christmas. The home is incredible, the people were amazing! We definitely fell in love and can't wait to return! The owners were so kind & patient to work with! We never tried the wi fi but didn't miss it, just got special minutes on our phone! The only thing we will take next time is baby oil for it made the sans flies not bite
Two sea kayaks and several snorkels are available for you to enjoy. World class bonefishing in Bennett's Creek, Alligator Creek and Orange Creek. Several guides are available on the island to help you spot 'em tailin'. Ricky Dean is available to take you out in his boat for fishing, diving or snorkeling. (242)474-8042
There are several places on the island to go for a hike and see the ruins of plantations, the Hermitage, bat caves or fresh water blue holes.
Go exploring on the 'North Shore' to see the wild side of Cat Island, where you can explore through all manner of 'flotsam' blown ashore from the Atlantic. Shells along the water, you can even find fresh conch in the water.
Go down South and visit the 'Regatta Site' with it's colorful food shacks and have lunch with the locals.
Please be sure to Google the name and location of ANY property that you want to rent to avoid fraud and scammers.
