Stayed for a full week with family and friends. What an amazing place! We especially enjoyed simply sitting on the back porch for morning coffee while watching the sunrise over stunning views of the Carribean.
Great diving and fishing are nearby. We caught several nice-sized tuna, and had fresh sushi courtesy of a rare Big-Eye tuna we caught. The private beach and snorkeling are right in the backyard and are gorgeous.
This is a perfect place to recharge and reconnect with families and friends.

My wife chose the Bahamas and since her nickname is Cat I thought we could not go wrong with an island with the same name. We had another couple that were suppose to go with us but on short notice cancelled but we decided to stay in this large house anyway. Little did we know how great this vacation was to be with just her and me.
First and foremost Bruce was so helpful in our planning and our booking flight arrangements to Cat Island as well as arranging and introducing us to some of the locals for fishing trips, car rental, and food preparation needs.
The house was immaculate and felt more like we were house sitting and not a vacation rental at all. The morning sunrise and coffee views from the back patio as well as the secluded beaches, snorkeling and kayaking were exactly the R&R; my wife and I were seeking. This is not a place for those wanting nightlife and need to be busy but truly for those just wanting seclusion and relaxation.
We made new friends (Roy and Lucille) after an introduction from Bruce for a fishing/snorkeling trip on their boat. Roy was so helpful to my wife that had never before been game fishing. When we were done at the end of the trip we found that we had not only learned about the fishing but the reef surrounding Cat Island as well. My wife caught a +200lb blue marlin and together we caught enough Mahi to feed the village of Port Howe for Mother's Day that Sunday at the local church. After lunch on the boat we did some snorkeling and really got to know our host a little better and my wife and I were so at ease. The locals were the friendliest and we were treated like family during our short stay on their island.
My only regret is we only had 8 days and that was not enough. We could have spent another week or more easily.
But we are already making plans to return again in the near future.
Thank you Bruce and all the people on Cat Island that made this the best vacation ever for the two of us.
