About Eileen Katt

Eileen Katt purchased this house in 2006
Why Eileen Katt chose Isabela
We first visited 'Shacks Beach' in 1999 and fell in love! We purchased 'The Lone Palm' in 2006. As a surfing/diving family, we find the area ideal. Located in the North-West corner of the island it is easy to find the perfect break on any given day.
What makes this house unique
Although the house is located at Shacks Beach it is not in a congested area, it is located at the end of a dead end street. A very serene setting with no traffic or noise.....except for a few horses riding by and a talkative nearby rooster :)
We are literally 100 steps from the ocean, accessed by a path through a canopy of palm trees.
Our very own beach offers amazing Kite Boarding, Snorkeling, Diving, Swimming and Beach Combing.........Miles of uninterrupted beach to stroll!
Within a short walking distance you'll find 'Ola Lola's' garden bar & cafe as well as Tropical Trail Rides, Villa Montana Resort, & Eclipse Restaurant.
