2BR House Vacation Rental in Cat Island, Bahamas

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Jul 21, 2020


Located in: Cat Island
The Banana Wind is a beach lover's paradise. Located on a private white sand beach, you can sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the sunrise or have an island drink and watch the sunset over the ocean. The bay that this island home is located on has plentiful coral reefs and snorkeling is amazing. You will see rays, parrot fish, blue tangs, snapper, lobster, octopus and much more. The kitchen is a brand new granite kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The caretaker of this property is a Bahamian fishing captain who can provide whatever seafood you desire, or book a charter with him and he can take you on his boat and you can fill your cooler for the trip home. Kayaks are available for exploring the reef and the nearby creek which is great for bone fishing. Bikes are also available which are nice for an morning ride. Local restaurants are only minutes away if you would like to eat out or order take out. The Banana Wind is a place to get away from it all! This is a place you will want to return to every year.

Restaurants are also close by. One is within walking distance and there are several other restaurants within 5-20 minutes that feature a mix of Bahamian cuisine and traditional American style food. If you don’t feel like going out, you can order takeout from the restaurant that our caretaker and his wife own and he will deliver to your oceanfront vacation rental. You can also order a meal to be ready upon your arrival so that you can sit back and have a contrail and enjoy the view after a day of traveling.

The Banana wind house is 1 mile from a small grocery store that has all of the necessities. The main grocery store is located 20 minutes away. Upon your arrival our caretaker will stop at this main grocery for you to pick up any supplies that you need.

The Banana Wind house has panoramic views of the turquoise ocean, so whether you are in the house or sitting on the deck, you have fabulous views of the ocean. There are 2 bedrooms, both with new Queen mattresses. One bedroom has a private bathroom and there is a separate shared bathroom. There is also a sleeping loft above the living area with a full bed for 2 additional guests.

The Banana Wind is conveniently located 20 miles from the New Bight, Cat Island airport. Our guests typically fly from the states or Europe to Nassau, Bahamas and then take Western Air to New Bight, Cat Island (a 30 minute flight). Western Air normally offers daily morning and afternoon flights. We recommend arriving before 2pm into Nassau to make your connecting Western Air flight into New Bight. Our caretaker Reynold or taxi driver will be there to greet you. If flying from Florida, another option is Watermaker’s air out of Fort Lauderdale.

One of the highlights of Cat Island is that it has the highest elevations of all of the 700 Bahamian islands. This high point is known as Mt. Alvernia. It is a must see when you visit Cat Island and is a short 15 minute drive from the house. The views from Mt. Alvernia are absolutely amazing. On top of Mt. Alvernia is the landmark known as “The Hermitage” which is a small monastery built in the early 1900’s by Father Jerome from England who lived up on Mt. Alvernia until his death. After your hike to the Hermitage, have some authentic Bahamian cuisine at The Blue Bird restaurant located at the end of the road leading up to Mt. Alvernia.

Other highlights of Cat Island are the “blue holes” on the center of the island that communicate with the ocean and of course, the numerous beautiful private white sand beaches.
