Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Great Value just 500 ft from the beach. Only 2 years old. Wonderful views, great sunsets, fully equipped, kayaks, bicycles, beach chairs..WIFI. All stainless appliances, 42 inch flat screen TV gets major US networks plus 2 Bahamian stations.

Gas Grill and propane supplied. Beautiful beach just 500 ft away down a private lane-way. R/O drinking water.

Cat Island is known for it's excellent fishing - both deep sea and bonefishing. For bonefishing, Bennett's Creek is a short kayak ride away or an easy walk, Orange Creek is only 15 minutes north for more bonefishing options. We can recommend various fishing guides.

Reverend Johnson will likely show up weekly offering produce for sale , Also our neighbor, Danny King who lives across the highway will often have vegetables for sale.

There are a number of small grocery stores located a short drive away for all your staples.

Cat Island offers the adventurous traveler opportunities to explore wild undeveloped Atlantic beaches, check out caves ,swim in blue holes and visit loyalist ruins.

A trip to the highest point in the Bahamas, the Hermitage, with its one man monastery, followed by cocktails and dinner at the beach-side regatta site is well worth the drive

For Scuba divers, Shanna's Cove is about 20 minutes to the north whereas Greenwood is about 1.5 hours to the south.

A small reef is located 200 ft offshore in front of of our house and is easily accessible from the beach. We have snorkel equipment plus two kayaks for your use.

For flights to Cat island, Arthur's Town airport is a quick 10 minutes transfer.

For private pilots New Bight airport 40 minutes away has customs check-in available.

Currently, the only scheduled flights to Cat Island are via Nassau. You should allow a minimum of 3 hours connection time in Nassau. For flights returning to the US. customs is pre-cleared in Nassau.

We strongly recommend Sky Bahamas. Sky Bahamas flies twice daily between Nassau and Cat Island serving both airports Arthur's Town being the closest - skybahamas.net.

Cat Island is a quiet island. There are no shopping malls ,casinos or large resorts.

Instead we have unspoiled beaches, crystal clear water and friendly people.

A little pieceof heaven

  • 5 of 5

Sunburst Cottage is like a little piece of heaven. Nestled in the treetops overlooking Wilson Bay with a view of the brilliant turqouise waters, it never fails to take my breath away. It is a short stroll to the pristine, unspoiled white sandy beach where you can bathe in the warm ocean waters, snorkel in the nearby reefs or amble along the soft sands under warm blue skies. It is balm to the soul. The cottage is modern, full of natural light, welcoming and homey. The well equipped kitchen is a great place to prepare meals with fresh grown local produce. There is BBQ on the deck so you can grill your favourite meats, or fish and lobster tails fresh off the boat. Modern bathrooms and comfy beds give restful nights and the large screened room provides an excellent place for delicious meals, games, reading and watching the amazing sunsets. If you are looking for rest and relaxation come to Cat Island, where the pace of life is slow and the people are lovely and every where you go there is a view to take your breath away. You'll be glad you did.

Perfect Relaxing Getaway! Terrific Owners

  • 5 of 5

First of all the property is entirely as described. Brand new, spotless, and well built. We are a family of four with 2 teenagers 18 and 15. It is very well located on Wilson's Bay which boasts a pristine white sand beach. Amazing crystal clear blue water with a reef to snorkel close to shore. We rarely saw anybody else on the beach. The owners Paul and Judy live in an adjacent property which gives you all of the local knowledge. Car rental? Not a problem. Want seafood, meat, groceries, beer, wine? They can direct you. Cat is a less populated island so this is extremely helpful. They genuinely want you to enjoy your stay. Amazing sunsets from the deck. Loved the screened in porch. We enjoyed using the kayaks and relaxing on the beach. We met a lot of the locals and ex-pats who welcomed us like old friends. Take your camera as there is lots to see and explore on the island. A memorable and fun vacation!

Delightful! Fabulous house, location and landlords

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 12 days at Sunburst Cottage and had an amazing time. The home is brand new, extremely well-built, and outfitted with modern conveniences. The property description on vrbo and home away are spot on. It was the perfect home base for all of our needs. My husband bonefished every day and was able to take the kayak from the beach into the creek to his fishing spot. My son (3 years old) and I had great beach time on Wilson's Bay, a very short walk from the house. The beach is stunning. The water is crystal clear and the sand is a nice pinky white and perfect for building sandcastles. Wilson's Bay is great because it is a protected, shallow area with a reef just a little ways off shore. A quick swim or kayak paddle to snorkle on the reef. There was great exploring in the tide pools nearby and a great spot to look for shells. Paul and Judi were awesome landlords. It was so great to have them nearby to provide insight and assistance yet they were never intrusive. On a place like Cat Island it is really helpful to have insider's information as not everything is obvious to the newcomer--even for basic needs like the best place to get groceries or gas or even connecting to a rental car. We deeply appreciate all that Paul and Judi did to make our stay on Cat at the Sunburst Cottage a wonderful experience. We hope to be back soon! Thank you both!!
