This is a wonderful property. It is clean and comfortable. The beach is beautiful. It is located near a couple of restaurants that are within walking distance, although we would suggest getting a car, there are many things to see. We enjoyed everything from kayaking and bonefishing in nearby alligator creek, to sightseeing around the island. The property caretaker, Trevor, checked on us several times and made sure we were O.K. The inhabitants of Cat Island are the nicest people you will ever meet. We will be back here many times. The owners kept in touch with us in the weeks before we left, and could not have tried harder to make sure things went smoothly, we will be forever grateful. Rick & Patti

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We were looking for quiet seclusion and we found it! The pics shown here are accurate and it only looks better in person! If you want house keeping, restaurants and lots of touristy stuff to entertain you then this may not be the place. If you don't mind cooking and cleaning up after yourselves then you will love it here! We lost track of days and time and didn't care one bit! Spend time at Yardies just down the road, the people are fabulous and friendly. Rent a car if you like, and travel from one end of the island to the other. Just remember to stay to the left, which is easy after a little practice. Things are expensive here, most everything is imported. We brought some of our favorite frozen meats, which really helped cut the cost of meals. Utensils, spices, pots and pans are already at the house. Boxie and Pumpkin (dogs) will be by to say hello, we shared some rib bones and snacks with them. They are very sweet. There are binders under the table next to the tv. Lots of good info and island history in them, make sure you browse through them when you get there as it will answer many questions you may have. There is plenty to do on this island if you are interested in renting a car and adventuring out everyday. There are bicycles and kayaks at the house for you to use. We just wanted to sit under the tiki hut and watch the water, drink some beers and bbq. And that is exactly what we did. The weather was perfect, sunny most days and 70-80 degrees. We will be coming back to Cat Island and renting this house from Donna again soon! What you see and read about this house is what you get, it will not disappoint! The owner Donna and caretaker Trevor will answer all your questions and take care of all your needs. Please go, enjoy, relax, have fun and let the tide wash away all your cares!!!!!!

Absolutely Amazing Stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent 2 glorious weeks for our honeymoon at the Sea Star. It was the absolute perfect location for rest and relaxation. Everything that Donna has advertised is exactly what the house looks like, what's included, the views, and the beach. I want to start off by saying that Donna is the most gracious hostess ever. She answered all of my millions of questions (we had booked a year in advance so it was a long year for her I'm sure...LOL) with promptness and grace. If you are thinking of renting her cottage, you don't have to worry about a thing! Donna will set your mind at ease in an instant AND no quesiton is too dumb...trust me!

The house itself is just perfect for 2 people. Had all the amentities we needed. The house is very open and airy and CLEAN! The living room, eating area, and kitchen are all nicely laid out. There's a flat screen TV (I think we turned it on twice), movies to watch, and books to read. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you would need. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom (right off the bedroom) was a good size.

Out the slider of the bedroom, is the walkway to the tiki hut (about 6 steps) and then to the most amazing beach. The white sand and aqua blue water are incredible. We had 2 weeks of perfect weather! It rained twice and not all day either so we were out there every single day. That tiki hut is absolutely perfect! We spent MOST of our time under there...the sun is VERY hot and we were only able to be out in it for a short time then get under the tiki hut to cool off or go swimming. We were mostly alone. There was NO ONE around except some workers working on a house down the way but they were gone by 2pm and some of the local kids would go swimming down the way. Honestly, it's like you had the whole beach to yourself!

The island itself is VERY simple. There are a few grocery/liquor stores but dont think you'll find any shopping areas or golf courses or nightlife. Theres is none. Everyone on the island is incredibly friendly and we did rent a car twice to tour the island. You can still see the effects of Irene everywhere although I'm surprised how well it bounced back. Trevor was "manager" of the property and he was extremely helpful! You MUST visit Yardie down the street, her conch salad is wonderful and she's a lovely lady!

If you are looking for nothing but peace, quiet, tranquility, and absolute relaxation, this is the cottage (for 2) to go to. You won't regret one second of your trip!

A week in Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent 7 glorious days at Sea Star Cottage. The property was just as described. Clean and well maintained. All the people that we encountered (very few) were friendly and more than willing to answer any questions. The beach was gorgeous we never saw another person on it the entire week. I would definately recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys seclusion and doing their own thing. Very relaxing. Thank you Donna and Peter for sharing your piece of heaven with us.

Perfect house for two

  • 5 out of 5
If you’re looking to rent a home for two people on Cat Island, then Sea Star is the perfect place. It sits directly on a beautiful white sandy beach, and the sea is all sand, no reef or coral. The photos on the Homeaway.com site depict the home and sea exactly as they are. Sea Star has a great Tiki Hut where you can view the most incredible sunsets, all within a couple of steps from the house. The home also has satellite TV with tons of channels and internet, which was a necessity for my husband. We enjoyed using the bikes & the kayaks, and the rafts were great for floating around in the gorgeous water. We thought Sea Star was in an excellent location. Only 10 minutes from Arthur’s Town where there are convenience stores and a couple of restaurants, and just a short ride north is Orange Creek with a grocery store and 2 miles up the road from there is Shanna’s Cove where you can have a nice lunch and/or dinner. We actually ended up preparing our dinners at home because the fisherman come into the pier just a short walk from Sea Star and we were able to buy fresh red snapper and lobster tails that we were able to prepare on Sea Star’s gas grill. We loved our first trip to Cat Island and look forward to returning with family and friends in the future.

Bennett's Harbor is located on the western shore of Cat Island. It is about 15 minutes to Arthurs town airport in the North, and about 35 minutes to New Bight airport in the south. Taxis are available as well as rental cars, and can be arranged. Fishing trips can be arranged as well, once you arrive. There are some very good Bahamian restaurants located 1/2 mile and 3 miles away. If you get lucky the Lassiedoe Boys will be home for some Rake n' Scrape dancing. You can also have dinner at 'Da Smoke Pot', where Renee is a great cook, and request some Rake n Scrape music from 'Julian and Da Smoke Pot Boys'! There are many wonderful beaches close by if you need to explore. The best one by far is the one that you're on though. It really doesn't get much better ! You can watch for the fishermen to return, run to the dock and buy the catch of the day. There are also a couple of pretty well stocked stores nearby.

***You can now also get to Cat Island via Sky Bahamas from Nassau***
