Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Cat Island - Cat Island Beach House

Two-bed/bath suite private beach front cottage with gorgeous sunset views!

The Beach House is located on the sunset side of unspoiled Cat Island, one of the Bahamas' 'Family Islands'. Only about 50 miles long, Cat Island enjoys delightful moderate weather, sea breezes from the east or west, and a relaxed, slow-paced style of life. Friendly people welcome visitors with island smiles. Few trappings of vacation land spoil your sojourn here. The Beach House is located on the leeward side about midway up the island, toward the north end.

Comfort and Relaxation is what you'll find at the Beach House. All the comforts but none of the distractions of home. A wide shady veranda with hammock overlooking the sea, visiting birds and geckos, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, pristine white sand beaches to walk....commune with nature at her most beautiful. Read, paint, fish, relax, and rejuvenate.

Two queen sized bedroom/bathroom suites, one on either side of the great room, provide comfort and privacy. A fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and an on-island manager will make your stay relaxed and easy.

Two sea kayaks complete with gear are there for your adventuring. Paddle south and explore the coral caves and meet the Osprey or venture north to Alligator Point and fish for Nassau grouper for dinner.

The western side of Cat Island is wild and deserted. A reef keeps the heavy waves out, and there is wonderful snorkeling in the clear deep waters. Follow the sea turtles, fish for snapper, poke among the flotsam for treasures, watch the sea birds, sketch the dunes and palm trees, read under your beach umbrella. There's always a cooling wind on the west side.

About Susan Weber

My brother found this place while visiting an old high school friend. He fell in love with the leisurely pace, the open friendly islanders, the world-class snorkeling and diving, and the unspoiled nature of Cat Island. We built this house on the rocks just steps above the pristine sandy and mostly deserted beach, looking west into the sunset. We visit as often as we can. The more we learn about Cat Island, the more we love it!

Susan Weber purchased this villa in 2005

Why Susan Weber chose Cat Island

Pigeon Cay beach is the most beautiful, pristine and secluded beach on the island. Pigeon Cay is a small community of mostly US off-island owners who, like us, are here only a few weeks a year. We rent to keep our island paradise.

The house is well designed and equipped for the tropical climate: the shady veranda across the entire front of the house, open concept, ceiling fans throughout, vaulted ceilings, French doors and cross ventilation in every room, make even the warmest days delicious.

The Sunset Lookout is the perfect place to enjoy a rum or a Kalik while you watch the spectacular nightly sunset show and yearn for that illusive 'green flash'.

Our central location makes us the perfect place for exploratory travels. Mornings are great for hikes to the old Anglican church and ancient cemetery, the 'shopping center' for ice cream sandwiches and 'cheddaire', or north to Alligator Point for the bold and athletic.

Hop in your car and explore the west side of Cat Island, its many deserted beaches and coves, the Hermitage known throughout the Bahamas as its highest point, the local eateries and bars, the gorgeous north end. Check out the black holes and the caves where islanders hid when pirates came looking for captives.

The place is interesting, laid back and comfortable. You'll see why so many of us from the states eventually migrate here.

What makes this villa unique

Comfortable without being prissy or luxurious; simple without being basic; our Cat Island Beach House will charm you with its private natural surroundings, peaceful ambiance, and lovely views, day or night. The stars will dazzle you! All the comforts of home but none of the demands. Relax and sink into the island experience.

Lovely stay

  • 4 out of 5
Message: Had a great time staying at this rental. Our plan to flyfish every day in a new place worked out well but the spooky bonefish did not cooperate as much as we had hoped. Because the house is located just north of the middle of the island and the island is only 48 miles long we could travel anywhere in very good time and have lots of fishing
Danny the caretaker was great with the car and getting 5 gallon jugs of water and all the info
We took him to dinner the last night but wished we had done that the first night as we would have had a head start with the fishing.
Danny knows his stuff and is a really nice guy, great ambassador for the island
Also almost forgot that at the end of your road is a great place to fish. I remembered two days before we left. Two of us walked from the bonefish flat not far from your house to the opening of alligator, yikes that's a long way and back. We were tired but saw plenty of fish
No matter your house was great , the two bathrooms worked great and the dryer was a big bonus
Thanks again
Stephen

Owner's Response: Stephen and his fishing buddies had a great time, regardless of the fishing. (The 5-gallon jugs of water were for them to take fishe=ing every day. Our water is drinkable ...we have a reverse osmosis system for drinking water.)

Our place is well-equipped for relaxing and just hanging out enjoying the scenery and the water. Or adventures like Stephen's are there as well. And Danny takes good care of you!

So Peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed here five times and will come back again! The site is so private, the beach so beautiful. It's conveniently located midway between the two airports, The house is beautiful, lovely tiled floors, excellent kitchen, clean and comfortable. All rooms have full views of the ocean. We loved having evening cocktails on the little patio, watching the sun sets. Breakfasts on the veranda. A really relaxing place to unwind.

We are on the island's most attractive, quiet and private beach, Pigeon Cay, on the leeward side of this secluded interesting island. There are blue holes, ruined plantations, ancient slave cottages, pirate caves, and hermit hideouts to explore. Tasty local cooking includes conch fritters, Nassau grouper, and lobster in season. Great beach combing, shelling and bird watching opportunities abound.

Explore secluded beaches and coves, snorkel the reefs and coral formations for turtles and sea creatures, hunt for wild orchids in the bush, fish for grouper and red snapper for supper.

Cat Island's pace is relaxed, its people reserved and gracious, its climate moderate with gentle breezes and warm sun most of the time. It's the perfect quiet get-away spot. Tired of the rat-race, the hustle and demands of daily life? Here's the place to relax and find yourself again.
