The Great Escape!

  • 5 out of 5
If you want to escape the routine and busyness of life, Cat Island is the place to visit!! We have travelled the family islands extensively over the past 15 years, but this was our first time to Cat. We spent 3 weeks in total exploring the island, and stayed at the Gate House our last week. The Gate house is a great cottage/home that has all the basics you need. It was clean, neat and showed exactly like what is listed on VRBO and the caretakers were wonderful! They arranged for one of their sons to go diving for us and supplied us with lobster and grouper, and they maintain the property very nicely. All the locals are very friendly, and we got used to 'waving' hello to all......and drive on the left at the same time!!

The main reason to go to an 'out island' is to appreciate the relaxing atmosphere, there are no "have to do this or that", it was true R & R. If your looking for tons of people, nightlife and shopping this isn't the place to do it. However, we snorkelled both on our own and with a local, utilized the kayaks supplied and went across the bay and up the creek. We saw turtles and fish, and walked the beach and swam in the shallow waters at the opening of the creek. We went out for lunch one day and enjoyed the beaches over by Greenwood, and went for dinner at Hawk's nest. They need to know in advance your coming but the food and service was excellent. We read, we hiked up to the Hermitage, and ate at the food shacks along the water in New Bight.

Gate House was a great value price wise, and is perfect for up to 4 people. The huge deck was awesome to sit out and enjoy the breezes coming off the atlantic, and with all the windows provided the same breezes inside!

We will definitely return to Cat Island next year and stay at the Gate House!!
