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... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My wife and I just returned from a fabulous trip to friendly Cat Island, Bahamas where we covered the entire Island (as is our practice when on an Out Island). Our last 6 nights were spent with Rich at his Tail Winds Resort. Bottom line is that Tail Winds is the best price/quality on the Island. This is because Rich... More

Have just returned from 8 days on Cat Island, of which we spent 4 at Tailwinds. It's a tough call, but location wise it's probably the best on the island - on the middle of a totally unspoiled beach on the NW side of the island - calm seas, afternoon sun etc. The rooms are definitely the best kept of...

Ok so this review is LONG overdue, but better late than never! My husband and I stayed here for a week and everything was perfect. You couldn't find a nicer beach with crystal clear water, the food was good, rooms were great with a perfect view, honor bar was very convenient, and even though we only saw Rich the last... More
