After deciding to visit the other islands in the bahamas, my husband and I and our three children decided on the out island Cat Island, we wanted to relax and get away from any from the crowds and resort deistractions and be able concentrate on a really nice family vacation. We were so happy with the choice of cat island, it has such a unique charm of solitude combined with the most gorgeous turquiose waters I have ever seen. The house we rented is called the Point House, it was so nice to have as much space for my teenage son and my younger girls chose thier favorite rooms immediately, my son happily chose the st floor master on the otherside of the house:)!! My husband and I had the top floor master with private deck. The kitchen was so amazing and modern, newly renovated and luxurious. I was so pleased everything about the house mades us perk up and realize we were going to have best stay. The house comes with a caretaker his name is Reynold Butler, he and my husband hit it off immediately, they made a plan to catch bonefish in a tidal creek in walking distance, Reynold made this trip so exactly what we were looking forward to, he brought us to a remote part of the island you can oly get to by boat or foot, it was absolutly breath taking, he also took us deepsea fishing; my son was able to land a tuna, he is already insisting on coming back next year to catch a wahoo. Reynolds also showed my girls where all the sand dollars were hiding, they are so proud of thier collection. He took such good care of us, he even brought us to the regatta site which has all these delectable island treats, we definately recommend the "cracked conch" and the conch fritters, I recommend the fresh daiquiris-it was like a wonderful postcard dining along the white sandy beach watching the sunset.
We give this experience 5 stars with staying at this beautiful gem of a house that sits on top of a high oceanside cliff that I enjoyed all day on one of its amazing vista decks watching my husband and kids play on the beach and in the sea. The cat island people were very friendly, the atmoshpere is quiet and layed back. There is even a little store you can bike ride to pick up those forgotten last minute items. We are already planning on coming again next year. This was our favorite most unforgettable top notch vacation!!
