We just came back from a wonderful 5 day vacation on Cat Island. We read all the good comments on this webpage so we decided to go with Tailwinds. All the written comments are 100 % correct. This lovely little piece of heaven is the best place you could stay. The beach is just 50 feet from your room. You...

We stated at Tailwinds in April 2014 for a week. The place is sooo beautiful! The beach is quiet with perfect sand, the Tiki bar is cute and Rose and Rich make a great meal. Our pod was huge and always perfectly clean. The view from our room was amazing. So fun! See you in November. Andrea & Jeff

Before writing this review I re-read down through all the posts for this year. These were the posts that helped to determine where my wife and I would spend our Caribbean vacation. Well, all I can say is that what has been said about Tail Winds by others is spot on accurate! Rich, the owner, is personable, Mispa and Reynoldo...

My girlfriend Valerie and I stayed at Tailwinds for 10 days last August. With the exception of one night, we had the entire resort and beach to ourselves. Richard was the best host we could've hoped for. I think we only saw one other group of people walking down the beach the entire stay. We went diving almost every morning...

My wife and I have been searching for a tropical paradise to re-energize during February vacation for several years. Being school teachers and being from northern New England, the spot we longed for had to be one-of-a-kind. This is truly the place. It's hard to avoid repeating other reviews' observations. Rich offers first-world amenities with island castaway isolation. The bungalows...

We got lucky on our first trip to Cat Island. Hannah's Hangar at Tailwinds was clean, spacious, comfortable and about 100 feet from the surf. Rich met us at the airport and from then on kept us supplied with drinks, great meals and stories. The beach is white, deserted and endless. Would love to go back!

Fantastic location literally on the beach, that you will have for yourself. Grab one of the kayaks or bikes that you can use for free and explore the Island, or just enjoy the place. Rick, the friendly - and admittedly colorful -host, will pick you up at the airstrip and really cares about his guests. Rooms are beautifully furnished. Breakfast,...

Talk about pristine turquoise waters and privacy! Very few if anyone on the beaches. Rooms were exceptionally clean, fridge with freezer, microwave, crisp bedding, air-conditioning, private outdoor shower. Absolutely pristine! A piece of heaven on earth! If you like quiet - this is the place for you! Rich, the owner generously offered to take us into town on a number...

Just got back from a wonderful getaway at Tailwinds last week. Property is the best of location, quality, & value. Footsteps from your room you can walk miles along the most beautiful beaches and never see another soul. Sunsets are amazing! Take the kayaks out, go north around the point to a really cool cave. Or south to deserted beaches...

Our favorite thing about our stay at Tail Winds was that we'd see maybe 4 or 5 people max on the beach each day - you can just walk for miles and miles and enjoy the incredibly beautiful beach without any distractions. If you enjoy snorkeling, trek to the left about a mile down the beach and there are a...
