My girlfriend and I spent a week island hopping over the Bahamas in a rented small Cessna private plane. Cat Island in general and the Tailwinds Resort in special were our first nightstop of choice, as I had already been there before and had been amazed. This is the secluded resort you've ever dreamt of. The reservation through the website... More

Beautiful location and spotless rooms. We loved the set up of the villas and common area and it's so close to the water. Unfortunately during our 6 day stay the hot tub was not working, the tikki bar on the beach was closed (something about the refrigerator not working), and the common room with the honor bar was locked by...

I own land on Cat Island and had not been there for a few years. Went to Cat in April of 2013 to visit what I consider to be my own piece of Heaven and stayed at Tail Winds! It was wonderful! Rich and Rosie were amazing and I can't wait to come back again. I hesitate telling people about... More

I could ramble on about this place for days, so if you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message. This review is LONG overdue, so now I'm just going to keep it short so that it gets done. <---whoops, failed at the brevity here... This place, these people, this island....all amazing.

This place, literally you have to be there to appreciate how amazing it is. We were worried before arriving that it would not be as fun as our previous trip in the exumas but it was amazing. We hadn't arranged any transport from airport to the hotel but as soon as we landed the resort had someone waiting for us... More

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
