We had a great time in a great house!

The previous reviews of the house are spot on. The house, the kitchen, the views, the beach, the snorkeling, the ambiance and the service are all five stars. During the reservation and pre-arrival process Bruce responded to dozens of our emails answering our multitude of questions. Upon arrival, Una met us at the airport and took us to the grocery, liquor store and to pick up our car. After a house briefing, we were on our own to hit the water and the beach. We asked Sheila to cook for us two nights, serving traditional Bahamian dinners. We fished and lobstered with Hoyt and his son Pedro and had all the fresh seafood we needed for the week. As the week came to a close we felt we met most all the friendly folks in the Port Howe settlement. Finally, check out Sheila's son Julius's woodcarvings for a Cat Island remembrance. I highly recommend Poodle House for a great island vacation.

Fabulous home and ocean view with private beach!

We thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home with every amenity along with the very private beach and outdoor shower. The tiki hut was perfect for relaxing in the shade. We prepared many nice meals and enjoyed a few restaurants around the island as well. Una was so friendly and gracious for showing us how special Cat Island is. Old Bight beach was also a favorite spot to swim and a enjoy the calm gorgeous waters and perfect sand. We miss it already and hope to visit again soon! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy such a romantic and fun anniversary vacation. Delia and Patrick.

Poodle House on Cat Island

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 23-Feb-2013
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2013
My wife, daughter and I just returned from a wonderful stay on Cat Island. The island is a special place with genuine, friendly people and no commercial development to speak of. It lives up to its billing as an unspoiled sanctuary in the Out Islands.

Staying at the Poodle House made our vacation on Cat Island an unforgettable experience. Previous reviews may seem to overstate the amenities of the house, but believe me, they do not. The gourmet kitchen is mind blowing and I do not have the words to describe what it is like to wake up to a Bahamian sunrise in the master suite with the ocean waves lapping the beach just outside the back door.

And the beach! Beautiful sand, completely private, with world class snorkeling reefs within a few short strokes from the shore. The sea is gin clear and we saw nearly every variety of reef fish in the guide book (except sharks, and we were fine with that.)

Bruce made every effort to ensure we were set up with all the arrangements necessary for a perfect stay in his beautiful house. I couldn't have asked for a more accommodating host or a more beautiful location for our family vacation. The Poodle House is perfect for a family retreat, a romantic getaway, or a couples' vacation. We will be back.
Owner's Response: Thank you so very kindly for the remarks about The Poodle House. I try to make sure one has a care free vacation. That is what vacations should be about.

Amazing Kitchen

We just finished our last supper in the Poodle House with local lobster sautéed in garlic and Port Howe tomato sauce over pasta, followed by roast Bahamian chicken and vegetables. Banana flambé for dessert. This is an amazing place and even a value when you consider that the spec rental houses hardly measure up to a house like this which is beautifully designed, appointed and furnished as a family's elegant high end beach house. My wife is an architectural critic by profession and she approved this message. The downside is that we may have to redo our kitchen when we get home. Best kitchen I have ever rented! Strangely I cannot think of any suggestions for improvements. Thanks. Warren

A Quiet Way of Life

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 25-Jun-2012
  • Date of Stay: May 2012
Tropical Cat Island for two weeks--it was a place for relaxation in elegant comfort and in warm waters, a place that calls visitors to learn about the people and their history too. The Albros have a comfortable home for their guests, complete with top of the line appliances, granite countertops, tile flooring and cypress paneling. The furnishings in the spacious rooms are of high quality and simple. Examples of local artisanry are displayed. You will feel comfortable here. The very private beach is ever present. What a fabulous place to swim and snorkel! Cat Islanders are welcoming--among them are great fishermen and women, divers, small business owners, fabulous cooks, artisans who work in shell, wood and thatch. The island's history and landmarks are worth exploring and the surrounding seas are unforgettable. I cried when I left.
Owner's Response: Thank you Marisella V for a very favorable review on my home on Cat Island . It is most appreciated. I hope you will allow us to favor your visit again in the future.
Thanks.

BAHAMAS

Some solitude seekers insist there's a direct relationship between proximity and peace: The farther you travel, the more quiet things get. Then there's Cat Island, a 48-mile-long coral outcrop just 265 miles east of Florida and only 45 minutes from Nassau. SkyBahamas Airlines flies to Cat Island daily from Nassau (skybahamas.net, round-trip from $179), yet of the over 5 million travelers to the Bahamas last year, only a fraction made a call on Cat. What they found here wasn't much, and in a good way: thatch-roof beach bars and empty pink-sand bays, diving and gentle hikes up Mt. Alvernia, the Bahamas's highest point at 206 feet above sea level.
