Firstly, I need to apologies for the extremely delayed review from our stay in October 2012 (I'll definitely do it next week, was mentioned a fair few times). Rich, thank you so much for having us, the location was fantastic, the food was fantastic, the beach, the rooms, the jacuzzi, the tikki bar, the weather, the sand, the water, everything... More

Richard and his staff are very welcoming, and the beach is secluded and empty yet beautiful with crystal clear turquoise water. Food is great with fair prices, and the beer on tap is ice cold. Rooms are extremely nice also. We stayed in a villa, which I highly recommend.

Just returned from our 5 night stay at Tailwinds, and what can I say? The recent reviews were spot on! Rich has built and runs one very nice organization there. After a rough trip from Nassau (thunderstorms and a broken bottle of rum in the luggage) we arrived into rain at Tailwinds. Rich quickly saw to it that the rum... More

My first time here was Easter weekend 2014. Such a wonderful time I had to come back in June for the Rake N Scrape Festival. Rich and Rosie are very accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We might be back in August for the Regatta.

This place is a little piece of paradise! Tucked away in a secluded part of the beautiful Island of Cat Island in the Bahamas, it was just what I needed for rest and relaxation. The days and nights are peacefully quiet...except for the sound of the ocean. I love that at night I could see all the stars. The beautiful... More

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... More

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... More

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
