Property description

Seabreeze is located on the beautiful white sand beach in Bennett's Harbour, at the northern end of Cat Island. Only 15 minutes from the Arthur's Town airport or, 45 minutes from the New Bight airport.
The house is perfect for a family...or two!

FOUR beautiful air conditioned bedrooms with ceiling fans, two are oceanfront master suites. Three full baths, and a spacious great room with three more ceiling fans. There is plenty of room for up to 8 guests. The kitchen has everything that you could ever want to prepare meals, as well as a 'Margaritaville Frozen Concoction' machine to create your own custom blended drinks on the patio as you watch the spectacular sunset.

Outside is a 14 x 14 covered gazebo, a 16 x 35 stone patio, and outside shower.

With speakers in the ceiling both in the great room, and on the patio, be sure to bring your iPod to relax with your favorite tunes.

DISH Network Satellite TV, a DVD player, lots of movies, video games, board games, puzzles, books and an iPod stereo system with speakers in the ceiling inside and out, are available to help you relax. There are two sea kayaks and lots of masks and snorkels for you to use. There are small stores nearby, and many restaurants to choose from for local Bahamian cooking.

Cat Island appeals to those who travel not just to see new landscapes, but also to gain a new perspective on living. Untarnished by tourism, you will feel welcomed by the friendly people on this southern Bahamian island. Lush rolling hills, dense woodlands, and isolated pink and white sand beaches cover Cat Island’s 150 square miles, fulfilling travelers in a way only the Bahamas can.

Discover a peaceful hideaway that evokes a familiar charm, as if to say, 'Welcome Home!”

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cat Island, Bahamas:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
