About the Property
Private beach-front cottage, lovely 2-bedroom suites, sunset views, full kitchen
Comfort and Relaxation is what you'll find at the Beach House. All the comforts but none of the distractions of home. A wide shady veranda with hammock overlooking the sea, visiting birds and geckos, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, pristine white sand beaches to walk.... commune with nature at her most beautiful. Read, paint, fish, relax, and rejuvenate.
Two sea kayaks complete with gear are there for your adventuring. Paddle south and explore the coral caves and meet the Osprey or venture north to Alligator Point and fish for Nassau grouper for dinner.
The western side of Cat Island is wild and deserted. A reef keeps the heavy waves out, and there is wonderful snorkeling in the clear deep waters. Follow the sea turtles, fish for snapper, poke among the flotsam for treasures, watch the sea birds, sketch the dunes and palm trees, read under your beach umbrella. There's always a cooling wind on the west side.

We are on the island's most beautiful, quiet and private beach, Pigeon Cay, on the leeward side of this secluded interesting island. There are blue holes, ruined plantations, ancient slave cottages, pirate caves, and hermit hideouts to explore. Tasty local fare includes conch fritters, Nassau grouper, and lobster in season. Great beach combing, shelling and bird watching opportunities abound. Meet friendly locals, purchase traditional straw crafts, enjoy gorgeous birds and snorkeling, and more.
Explore secluded beaches and coves, snorkel the reefs and coral formations for turtles and sea creatures, hunt for wild orchids in the bush, fish for grouper and red snapper for supper.
Cat Island's pace is relaxed, its people reserved and gracious, its climate moderate with gentle breezes and warm sun most of the time. It's the perfect quiet get-away spot. Tired of the rat-race, the hustle and demands of daily life? Here's the place to relax and find yourself again.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My brother found this place while visiting an old high school friend. He fell in love with the leisurely pace, the open friendly islanders, the world-class snorkeling and diving, and the unspoiled nature of Cat Island. We built this house on the rocks just steps above the pristine sandy and mostly deserted beach, looking west into the sunset. We visit as often as we can. The more we learn about Cat Island, the more we love it!
Why the Owner Chose Cat Island, Bahamas:
Pigeon Cay beach is the most beautiful, pristine and secluded beach on the island. Pigeon Cay is a small community of mostly US off-island owners who, like us, are here only a few weeks a year. We rent to keep our island paradise. The house is well designed and equipped for the tropical climate: the shady veranda across the entire front of the house, open concept, ceiling fans throughout, vaulted ceilings, French doors and cross ventilation in every room, make even the warmest days delicious. The swimming off our pristine sandy beach is perfect. Gin-clear waters, pink powder sand. The Sunset Lookout is the perfect place to enjoy a rum or a Kalik while you watch the spectacular nightly sunset show and yearn for that illusive 'green flash'. Our central location makes us the perfect place for exploratory travels. Mornings are great for hikes to the old Anglican church and ancient cemetery, the 'shopping center' for ice cream sandwiches and 'cheddaire', or north to Alligator Point for the bold and athletic. Hop in your car and explore the west side of Cat Island, its many deserted beaches and coves, the Hermitage known throughout the Bahamas as its highest point, the local eateries and bars, the gorgeous north end. Check out the black holes and the caves where islanders hid when pirates came looking for captives. The place is interesting, laid back and comfortable. You'll see why so many of us from the states eventually migrate here.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Comfortable without being prissy or luxurious; simple without being basic; our Cat Island Beach House will charm you with its private natural surroundings, peaceful ambiance, and lovely views, day or night. The stars will dazzle you! All the comforts of home but none of the demands. Relax and sink into the island experience.
