Casa Loma is a wonderful home in a secluded and lovely location. The hosts are extraordinarily helpful, the beaches are pristine and the community is warm and welcoming. Just the spot to disconnect from it all and to recharge and refresh! The house is sited in the north end of Cat Island, which has lush surroundings and a choice of beaches on the east, north, and west sides of the island. From the house, you can enjoy panoramic views of the beautiful landscape with the sea and neighboring islands in the background. Nick and Manette Cripps are delightful hosts providing just enough support and guidance to truly experience the island as a local. Nick picked us up at the airport, made his car available to us as needed, booked restaurant reservations and provided us with crucial tips for exploring the island. Few people know it as well as he does and he seems to know everyone on the island. There is a beach just a ten minute walk from the house, which is one of the most beautiful we have seen in the Caribbean. It is perfect for swimming, snorkeling and long walks. During our week on the island, we did not see a single person on the beach. We explored other nearby beaches, but felt little need to leave the one on the property. The house has a full kitchen and groceries are nearby. We ate several dinners and lunches at Shanna's Cove, just a few minutes away. The food and the ambience were always fantastic. We had a great week and would highly recommend this house and Cat Island - in fact, we look forward to coming again soon!
