Here, you can trace the roots of Academy Award winning actor, Sir Sidney Poitier, as well as Bahamian Artist and Musician Tony McKay (also known as Exuma the Obeah Man). It is also the home of rake & scrape music, an indigenous Bahamian musical form played on drum, saw and accordion. There are caves to explore, blue holes and endless white sand beaches and shelling locations with no crowds of tourists. Exquisitely made churches dot the island, including The Hermitage - a one man monastery on the highest point in the Bahamas, built by Father Jerome, a celebrated early 20th century catholic priest and church builder. There are many small local restaurants serving the best of traditional Bahamian fare. To boot, Cat Islanders are helpful and friendly and uncorrupted by the tourist hustle that is found on other island destinations. There are Taxis and Tour operators on the island. Even better rent a 4WD vehicle for your stay. We can provide transport to and from the House. The listed rate is for the full house. Full occupancy is 10 people. We do not rent single rooms but if you choose to rent the full house at less than full occupancy you are free to do so. We clean thoroughly before very guest arrival and clean and change linens every 3 days. If you desire daily cleaning we will provide it at 75$ per day cash. We can also arrange cooking and other activities such as live music and day sailing charters at an extra fee. We will arrange transportation to and from the property or better yet you can rent your own vehicle. The best person to contact would be Gilbert's Car Rental at (phone number hidden). Ask for the 4WD! There are two very friendly dogs and a cat on the premesis which can be sequestered at your request.

Place's rules
Spirit House is not for everyone. It is a remote house on a remote island and a certain self reliance and adventurous spirit is required. We expect guests to treat the house with respect and love as if it were their own. Party all you want there are no neighbors to disturb. Smoking is permitted but keep it outside on the verandahs. Ask before you bring pets.

Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
