Payments can be made by credit cards at PayPal Account lmeredith05@gmail.com The home is situated in the Capital settlement of Cat island, the Settlement of New Bight. It is located at Fountain Bay, a separate Island in New Bight. It sits on the most beautiful, picturesque beach in New Bight. It is an extremely tranquil, and excluded spot and the ideal place to get away!! It is on the second story of the home. The front yard is the beach. There is a Miranda all around the home, so one can view the sun rise and sun set. You may also view the very blue waters of the beach from the entire southeast section of the home. It is the perfect honeymoon suite and a fabulous family get away!

Property location and floor plan....AMAZING. Upkeep....NOT SO MUCH

  • 4 of 5

My overall impression of the Beach house is that the Floor plan is amazing! Grand in size, open floor plan with plenty of seating for a large group. The location was perfect in my opinion. The house is minutes from the New Bight Airport and Market/ grocery store. The house is right next to the Fountain Bay Restaurant and bar, close to places of interest like The Hermitage, Fernandez Bay and Hawks Nest. Last but not lease the house is situated on the beautiful Caribbean side of the ocean where the seas are calm and the beach is pristine, secluded and full of beauty. The stars gazing is second to none. That being said, the house is in desperate need of some TLC. The deck, dishwasher, washing machine, Microwave and sink faucet are in dire straits. The deck in particular is unsafe and I highly discourage kids to step foot on it. There are missing deck boards that a child could easy fall through. The washing machine is unusable like the dish washer and the house could use a deep clean. All in all, I’m glad I didn’t know about the deck falling apart, or the drywall coming off the wall, the broken dishwasher and broken clothes washer, because had I known, I would have passed on this amazing location, floor plan and beach. It is the perfect spot!

Owner's Response: The deck material has been ordered and will be replaced when it arrives. Any missing boards on the deck will be taken care of this week. The dishwasher is being replaced. I had the washer fixed Feb 9 and was told it was working. Will check it out. Not aware of any dry wall falling of the wall but will check. Any and all TLC will be address at this time.Sent a new microwave. I have a new Sink faucet that will be replaced Feb

Comfortable home in a gorgeous serene setting

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental property with very comfortable furniture and beds, up to date modern appliances, walk-in showers, nice baths, fully equipped kitchen and huge wrap-around deck with commanding views. Located on a quiet secluded beautiful shallow beach that is perfect for walks, swimming and exploring--turtles, rays, lobsters, different types of fish and other sea life can all be found at this location . Nearby flats and creek systems offer outstanding fishing opportunities. Close to best markets on the island in New Bight and Smith Bay. Great central island location is perfect for exploring other beautiful beaches such as Old Bight, Greenwood, the south beaches and other beaches to the north and Atlantic side. For exploring, a rental car is a must have. Be sure to check out the Saturday night fish fry and all the great casual restaurants at that location. The people of Cat Island (and the other out islands) are the friendliest on earth! Larry provided great communication to us and our stay at this location was perfect. We have been to a number of out islands and Cat Island and this rental are among the very best of our experiences. Thank you much, Larry and we will be back! -Kevin and Kelly (Seattle, Washington)

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed in this house for two weeks and I can't fault it, it is in a really nice location right on the beach and more or less in the middle of the island which is great for touring. The house is exactly as described and great value for money. You can paddle up the creek and fish from the kayaks, there were rays and the odd little shark along with turtles swimming in the bay when we were there.The wifi was down due to a lightning strike but it's to be repaired next week. The water went off due to a storm one night but one phone call to the owner and a man called Junior was there and had it up and running.I would stay there again, it's a beautiful island, very quiet with very friendly locals, we loved the place. We have been to Eluthera but we preferred cat island as its so quiet. Larry the owner also sorted out car rental for us which was waiting at the airport on our arrival. 10/10+

Cat island

Cat island is not for everyone, but if you desire down time, nothing says relax like the almost deserted beaches with turquoise blue waters of Cat Island.

It's definitely a recharge-your-batteries sort of place.

My husband and I have vacationed in Cat Island for the past 6 years and plan to continue for the rest of our days. We have stayed in both the North and South end and last year we discovered Larry and Yvette's (they are awesome). Simply put, I can not recommend this home enough. With two bedrooms, two baths, large living room area, full kitchen, washer/dryer, wifi, wrap around balcony overlooking a breathtaking beach......it's the ideal accommodation at a reasonable price. Additionally, the location couldn't be more convenient since it is only miles from the New Bight Airport and Gilbert's market/car rental.

REMINDER, Cat Island and this property is all about peace and relaxation. There are NO movie theaters, golf courses, fast food restaurants, Walmart Super centers......if this is your cup of tea, you should look elsewhere. Otherwise consider Cat Island, it's sun believable!
