          This house set on a quiet hill,on a 50acre private estate, is all about getting away from the rat race for a while. Beautiful views over lakes and trees, with a balcony to spend romantic evenings watching the sun set, are just two of this house's attractions. All around we have beautiful unspoilt beaches just minutes away, and incredible wooded estate trails for those wanting a less relaxed vacation. The house has lots of space with 2,800sq.ft plus a large outside sun deck giving a panoramic view of the surrounding lakes, woodlands and beaches. Within one mile is the Shanna Bay dive resort, restaurant and bar, as well as the Tailwinds resort, both on Port Royal beach to the south of us. To the north is a pristine 3 mile very private beach with great snorkeling, reached by a track from our property, with a five minute walk down the hill. This property is newly built and runs on solar electricity, as is our own house which lies about 300yds away, and the private driveway is one mile long. There is a good food store within three miles and it is recommended to hire a car, so that one can enjoy the whole 50 miles of Cat island, and its cultural gifts and laid back style of living. One can easily go to a different beach every day or just hang out at the top of the hill and dream of finding your Shangri-La, as I have done. Casa Loma is a new house which I built 300 yds from my residence, and being on top of the hill it has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, including lakes, beaches and woodland. It is a very private and quiet location within the 50 acre estate, but just one mile from the nearest resort, restaurant, and bar. The nearest beach is a five minute walk down to the north beach on one of our trails, with wonderful snorkeling. B y renting a car one can tour the whole island, or just find another beach without footprints. Cat island has a lot of history and the culture goes back centuries, all worth investigating. For those who just want to have R&R; or find themselves, there are hiking and biking trails on this fifty acre property, with breathtaking views of the Bahamas. Lastly there is a good food store within three miles.

The fishhook-shaped island; is some 48 miles long and 1 to 4 miles wide, and lies about 325 miles southeast of Miami. Named after the pirate Arthur Catt, it’s located near the Tropic of Cancer, between Eleuthera and Long Island. It has one of the best climates in The Bahamas, with temperatures in the high 60s during the short winters, rising to the mid-80s in summer, with trade winds making the place even more comfortable. With its pristine virgin beaches, Cat Island is one of the most beautiful islands in The Bahamas, and it is so little visited that it's inexpensive and still feels undiscovered. Many local historians claim that Cat Island residents were the first to see Columbus. The great explorer himself was believed by some to have been welcomed here by the peaceful Arawaks. Beautiful beaches offer an array of water sports. Visitors can go swimming or snorkeling at several places. Keywords: Beach House

Cat Island Overview: Untainted by tourism, Cat Island is the sixth-largest island in The Bahamas. The fishhook-shaped island — some 48 miles long and 1 to 4 miles wide and lies about 325 miles southeast of Miami. Named after the pirate Arthur Catt, it’s located near the Tropic of Cancer, between Eleuthera and Long Island. It has one of the best climates in The Bahamas, with temperatures in the high 60s during the short winters, rising to the mid-80s in summer, with trade winds making the place even more comfortable. With its pristine virgin beaches, Cat Island is one of the most beautiful islands in The Bahamas, and it is so little visited that it's inexpensive and still feels undiscovered. Many local historians claim that Cat Island residents were the first to see Columbus. The great explorer himself was believed by some to have been welcomed here by the peaceful Arawaks. Beautiful beaches offer an array of water sports. Visitors can go swimming or snorkeling at several places.

Alvernia This island's distinct virtue is that it is home to the highest point in the Bahamas--Mount Alvernia--an astounding 206 feet (63 meters) above sea level On its peak is a monastery called The Hermitage, built by Monsignor Jerome Hawkes, who came to The Bahamas as an Architect and an Anglican priest to repair Anglican churches on Long Island. He was later ordained as a Roman Catholic Priest and became known as Monsignor Jerome Hawkes. Deveaux Mansion The ruins of an 18th-century plantation house. Columbus Point One of the many Indian caves which honeycomb the island, and a conch shell monument to Christopher Columbus, a testament to the locals' undying belief that here marks his first landfall, much to the dismay of the nearby San Salvadorians, who insist that the honor belongs to them. Boating/Sailing & Diving Since the day they were first discovered by ship, the 700 islands in The Bahamas have increasingly become a magnet for sea vessels. Fuel up. Chart a course. Uninhabited cays, hidden coves, annual regattas, and modern marinas will sweeten the voyage. Diving Coral reefs. Blue holes. Walls. Caves. Shipwrecks. Sharks. Dolphins. Stingrays. The variety of islands in The Bahamas presents a variety of diving experiences. Beginners and experts are welcome. Lessons and guides can be found throughout the islands. Blue Hole; Out on the bank, this circular depression leads to an 80- to 100-foot descent along the outer walls. Inside the opening, divers often encounter schools of fish, large grouper, and Caribbean reef sharks. White Hole Reef This reef expresses another phenomenon unusual to The Bahamas: circular depressions in the limestone basin that form flat basins surrounded by coral mounds. These sites serve as an oasis for solitary reef and schooling fish. Fishing Bonefishing has become a local favorite within The Islands Of The Bahamas. Bonefishing takes place in the flats, where guides slowly pole small flat-bottomed boats for anglers or the truly dedicated quietly stalk these elusive fish by wading through knee-deep water. These quicksilver fighters, weighing up to 15 pounds, inspire both fly fishermen and spin casters alike with their power and speed. Unpredictable and wily, the bonefish are often found in schools of 100 or more, making for exciting bursts of action. Don’t try to eat these bottom skimmers—you’ll quickly realize how they got their name. Nathaniel 'Top Cat' Gilbert, a native of Cat Island, is an expert fishing guide and Certified Bonefishing Champion, with years of experience. He is a people person, likes to entertain and demonstrate fishing techniques. He knows where all of the good fishing spots are and guarantees that you will see fish.
