You'll fall in love with this beautiful five room stone house located directly on a gorgeous, secluded beach. This two bedroom home is positioned among many palm trees, just steps from one of the prettiest pristine beaches you'll ever see. The beach gradually extends, coral free, into the blue water. Farther offshore are reefs perfect for diving or snorkeling. Tanks may be filled at request.

About the House...The house blends beautifully with the environment. The interior and exterior walls are local white coral and natural wood is used for the open-beamed ceilings. Stained glass windows filter the sun rays in mellow colors in the hallway and dining area. There are two large bedrooms with ceiling fans and king size beds, a living room/dining room, kitchen, pantry and bathroom. The double wide sliding glass doors in the living room and each bedroom open onto the patio which extends the full length of the house and faces the beach.

The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances (stove-top, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, blender, drip coffee maker and washing machine). There is a gas grill on the patio for barbecuing. Fresh local seafood can be purchased from the natives.

The large living room features cozy tropical furnishings and a fireplace. We have a TV/VCR with a large selection of movies as well as a cassette/CD player with a wide variety of music. We also have an assortment of games and best seller books. Beach chairs, beach towels and all linens are included...everything you will need for a relaxing and fun vacation.

The Island...If you choose to explore the island, we have a vehicle for rent on a weekly basis. Cat Island is 55 miles long and transversed by one paved roadway which winds from the northern tip of the island along the Caribbean coastline to the southern shore. The terrain varies from flat to hilly. Side roads reach the dramatic Atlantic coast with its pounding surf...a great place for beachcombing and exploring. Swimming, snorkeling and diving are great on the Caribbean side of the island. The vegetation is lush and tropical with beautiful palms and flowering plants. The natives are honest and friendly, most make their livings from farming and fishing.

The island has an interesting history. Folklore has it that Cat Island is the original San Salvador where Columbus first landed. You can almost feel yourself walking in the footsteps of pirates and adventurers as you explore the hidden coves, beaches and "pirate caves" that dot the island. Be sure to explore The Hermitage located on the top of Cat Island's highest point, Mt. Alvernia. This wonderful, now abandoned, landmark was built by Fra. Jermone, the "hermit of Cat Island", an architect and Angelican monk who came to the Bahamas to build churches. While working on The Hermitage, Fra. Jermone lived in a cave on Mt. Alvernia, in which he now is buried.


For diving and snorkeling enthusiasts, there are pristine coral heads and reefs abundant with colorful fish. Tanks and weight belts are available near our house, but you will need to bring your other equipment. Cat Island is known for it's wonderful bone fishing!
