Met Cathleen on airplane coming back from a business trip. Cathleen shared with me about the Island Hoppinn. Never had been there and took a chance from her recommendation. It was better than I could have expected. Total relaxation and never checked email or phone. Just relaxed, went snorkling, took canoe up mangroves, sat on porch and read, took beach... More

My husband and I had never been out of the country and decided to venture to the Bahamas, we had the most amazing experience at Island Hoppinn with Cathleen and Alyssa as our hostess's. Beautiful location with snorkeling opportunities, we went to the mangroves twice, once you enter if you stay to the far right you will end up on... More

The island was beautiful, relaxing, and safe. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It was like having our own little cottage right on the beach... the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. There are barely any other people around so it feels very private. Cathy and Alyssa were the perfect hosts, very accommodating and always went... More

My husband and our daughter, plus her fiance, and I flew into Cat Island and there were Cathleen and her lovely daughter, Alyssa, waiting to pick us up at the airport. They weren't even sure we were going to make it that evening. However, not waiting for a call or email, she heard our plane fly overhead and came out... More

Thank you for taking the time to fully describe, and the many compliments for your stay! 'No-see-ums' can, at sunset on a windless night, be a factor to some people. Island HoppInn provides spray to prevent bites, and Benadryl sticks for relief to stop the itch from a bite. More

My husband and I decided to take a five-day trip to the Bahamas in the midst of a horrendous winter, an anti-climactic 40th birthday, and work-related international travel. We wanted to avoid the casinos and big resorts, so we started researching "off the beaten track Bahamas" online. We found Island HoppInn on Cat Island, and had an absolutely fantastic stay.... More

My wife and I travelled to Island Hoppinn with our 5 month old son, and two best friends this past January. We were looking for a Caribbean vacation that was off of the well trodden tourist path, something untouched by mega resorts and the hoards of tourists typically associated with the larger ports of call. After looking at tons of... More

You know those photos of faraway, island vacations where the beach has silky sand, crystal blue water and you and your significant other are the only ones there enjoying the view? I always thought those photos were altered or just advertisement propaganda, tempting you to sign up for a vacation like that only to find out the beach looks just... More
