It was so wonderful last year, we decided to come back. It was as good or better. What's not to like about your own beach, apparently deserted, three miles long of beautiful clean sand and clear blue-green water? Two of the four villas enjoy an uninterrupted view of the ocean (see photo); all are clean, well-appointed with kitchen and king-size...

A clean and quiet, well maintained "resort" with the caribbean sea practically out your doorstep. The villas all face west where a few coconut trees and small palm trees are the only things between you and the beach; literally 15 yards away where you can listen to the gently rolling surf from your room; or the tiki bar, or a...

That's what Richie said we were, because by definition, we "walked in" for our meals but didn't stay there. Given a notepad, told to write our names on it, then shown the ropes about the honor bar, we got our first drink - "Make whatever you want!" Richie encouraged, so us newbies went behind the bar and like kids in...

We had the entire beach to ourselves! Kayaks were easily accessible. We had fun kayaking, swimming, and walking the beach. Richard was very hospitable and took care of all of our needs, breakfast lunch and dinner. We will definitely return! We missed our connection on the first day, make sure you go to the express lane on the left for...

We stayed at Tail Winds in the middle of December it was an amazing experience! The beach is right outside your Villa; you can hear the ocean waves crash as you sleep. The beach was absolutely beautiful with the softest sand you will ever step in, the views there are out of this world, you won't find anyone else walking...

We arrived Cat Island 7/13/2016 on Sky bahamas air. Richard the owner of Tailwinds picked us up. Tailwinds was more than we expected, everything was exactly like the website. We stayed in the Flap House Villa. It was perfect! The view from our Villa was amazing! Only a few steps away from the beach, you could hear the waves and...

Tailwinds is the perfect place for people who like to do their own thing. Relaxing on the beach, snorkling, beachcombing or sightseeing, Tailwinds has it all! The staff are wonderful, the food was great and the our bungalo was awesome! Although, taking a shower outside, (there is no roof, just the beautiful sky), took some getting used to!!

I want to start by saying a huge thank you to Rich (owner), Mispah, and Joe for treating us so well. We've literally been home from the airport for 20 minutes and we are already requesting time off to make a return visit with our extended family. Our 5 nights on Cat Island were hands down the best 5 nights...
