Overview

Bahamas Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2BR Ocean Front Vacation Rental In Alice Town, North Bimini,

Katt's Kottage is a quaint beach front cottage that's ideal for a vacation retreat and SLEEPS 1-5 PEOPLE. This 2BR/1BA SECOND FLOOR unit is safe, private, clean and fully air-conditioned. Newly built this 2 bedroom unit was completed in June 2014

The outside deck is a perfect spot for sunning or for quietly reading a book, surfing the internet, listening to the ocean surf, dolphin watching or enjoying a sunset.

We are on North Bimini close to the heart of everything! There are three marinas nearby - Bimini Big Game Club, Bluewaters and Seacrest. It's just a two-minute walk to the authentic Bahamian Arts and Crafts market and a stroll to freshly made conch salad at Fabien's or a seafood pizza from Edith's. For more of a dining experience try the Big Game Club or South Bimini Beach Club. Dance at Big John's or End of the World Bar and be comfortable knowing that home is just a short walk away. Go on a wild dolphin swim, bone fish the flats, check out the museums or just walk the beach.

About Bimini: Bimini is located approximately 50 nautical miles east of Miami, Florida. It is the first island in the archipelago chain of 700 islands and cays that comprise the Bahama islands and is referred to as the 'Gateway to the Bahamas.' It is divided into North and South Bimini with North Bimini being the main area of commercial activity and most populated. Bimini is most famous for its gin clear, turquoise waters, world record fishing and diving sites which include the Lost City of Atlantis and amazing deep wall drops. The atmosphere is laid back and casual. There are a number of small resorts, bars and restaurants frequented by the weekend boaters visiting from Florida. There is a 5000 foot landing strip on South Bimini with air service to South Florida, Nassau and Grand Bahamas. While here be sure to visit the Museum, the newly rebuilt Straw Market, take an eco trip to the bone fish flats or experience a wild dolphin swim.

Katt's Kottage is the best value for a weekend jaunt or a long-term stay. We look forward to welcoming you to our special island soon.

  • 5 of 5

Katt's Kottage is the perfect getaway cottage- steps to a beautiful beach, quaint and cozy, private, and PEACEFUL.!. the cottage is well furnished and very comfortable- bimini is a small island where we found the locals to be extremely friendly and welcoming. Matt and Katt are amazing hosts that were always available, yet respectful. The entire experience was beyond our expectations- If you are looking for a great place to "chill"- this is it!

SOOOO RELAXING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed with Matt and Katt for two weeks in Katt's Cottage. The stay was SO RELAXING. Katt picked us up at the ferry and did everything she could to make us comfortable in a new place with two little kids. Not only was the place better than expected, Wifi, TV with all the channels, A/C in the entire place, etc....but they also had supplies stocked for us in the frig. When traveling with little kids (6 & 8) parents really have ta' be protective. Katt and Matt made every experience a comfort! Even connecting us with a local guy for golf cart rentals to help save a $ from the big resort prices.

The beach, ahhhh the beach in front of the house is AMAZING! pics don't do justice!!! We spent every day out there....cuz we're beach bums!

Thank you Katt and Matt for loving on us as you did! You really made our summer! The kids already miss ya :)

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Katt & Matt were the perfect hosts. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The deck overlooking the beach was my favourite place to sit. The island is truly a hidden gem. The people are so friendly and helpful. The local quisine is something to experience. This was a memorable vacation and something I would recommend to all and plan on another trip soon.

GREAT place on the Beach, close yet far away from town, hosted by a wonderful couple!

  • 5 of 5

Katt & Matt's place on Radio Beach is as good as it gets in Alice Town! We booked the smaller "bungalow" unit as WE didn't realize there was another choice!? Katt & Matt's flexibility allowed us to move into the front, second story "penthouse", which suited US far better than the bungalow (not that the Bungalow is bad)! It is an ideal unit and location! It is literally steps away from the usually deserted Radio Beach on the windward side of North Bimini with a balcony affording great beach and sunset views while enjoying the breeze and sounds of the surf. The back porch is a great spot for morning sunning and reading while sheltered from the westerly wind. The complete kitchen and bath with 2 bedrooms are all spacious and nicely finished and decorated. The only weak spot was the comfort of the master bed, which Katt has on her list to correct! Our hosts could not have been more helpful and accommodating providing; activity, restaurant and shopping suggestions, logistics and transport assistance, and warm friendly conversation (not to mention the Charlie's Bahamian homemade bread provided upon arrival)! The only disappointment of our trip was the lack of respect afforded by the local population for the beauty of their natural environment, evidenced by the amount of trash and run down structures in the town, But Katt and Matt's place took your focus to all the wonderful aspects of North Bimini; the beach, the breeze, the sand, the fishing, the beachcombing, the surf, the flora, and the warm sun! As we said; "It doesn't get better in Alice Town than Katt's Kottages!!"

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff. Hi Kathy. Yeh, Katt's Kottage (1BR) is nice and cozy but you can't beat that PTHS view! Sorry about the mattress, since then it has been replaced as promised. That is why we welcome guest comments. They are the best tools we have to ensure that our product is always the best possible. Your closing comment was touching and we thank you kindly. P.S. You will be glad to know that since your visit, there has been an on going, island wide clean up and I must say, it's looking VERY nice indeed.

Great Cottage at the best beach on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Matt and Katt were very awesome and helpful. The rental was great: clean, well organized, cute and in a great location. People came from the Resort to go to our Beach, it's that perfect. Bimini is very beautiful and the people are very friendly.

Stuart's Conch salad is the best.

Rent a golf cart, it's the funnest part.

That being said I'd like to share a few things about Bimini that you should consider:

- I wore 94% DEET the whole time but still got eaten alive any time I was outside. If you are sensitive to bug bites, Bimini might not be the best place for you. I came home covered in itchy blisters.

-It is very quiet on island unless it's the weekend. Sunday and Monday it was like a ghost town.

-The Food situation was shocking: we've been to other islands are used to paying high prices and having somewhat limited availability so we thought we knew what to expect. The prices were high but fine but markets in Bimini have the most limited food choices I've ever seen. The restaurants have small menus and the food is just okay.

Owner's Response: Your kind words are truly appreciated. Matt and I are particularly honoured that you chose to stay with us for your honeymoon. So sorry to hear about your experience with mosquito bites. We had a rainy year which meant an increased number of mosquitoes. Bimini is by no means this "buggy" normally. Yes, the island was quiet and more laid back, but your visit was during the off season. During the peak season, April-September and over the holidays, the island is very vibrant and there are a number of activities happening. You are right about grocery prices - visitors can experience "sticker shock". I hope this doesn't prevent you from visiting Bimini again. We would love to have you back for an anniversary. Until then, all the best.....Matt and Katt.

You Are Right on It
Car: not necessary

Katt's Kottage is a cozy, quiet and safe retreat from the world where you live. White, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are just steps from your front door or a relaxing view from your private balcony. The two bedroom units have a queen bed and two XL-Twin beds and will sleep 4 comfortably. Stroll leisurely around the island and take in the views or rent a golf cart or bicycle and tour it in style. Catch a tan on the beach or lounge under an umbrella. Snorkel the waters right off the beach or swim with wild dolphins. Dance the night away or relax on the deck under the stars. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor charcoal grill. A selection of restaurants and bars are three to five minutes walk away and there are three marinas just as close - Bimini Big Game Club, Bluewater and Seacrest. The people of Bimini are friendly and helpful and eager to make you fell welcome to our island. Remember to bring your camera because the sunrises and sunsets are both breathtaking and the people are always smiling!

See you soon!
