I hadn't been back to Fernandez Bay in twenty years but always had great memories of it. It was far better this time than I remembered it. The resort has been expanded and Jason and the rest of the staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. The cottages are cozy and the

We've been making an annual visit to the Bahamas with a group of friends for the last 14 years visiting many different islands and staying at a variety of resorts and villas. We discovered Fernandez Bay Village about 12 years ago and have been in love ever since. It is by far

This was magical in so many ways. I can't imagine another beach vacation could match Fernandez Bay Village. We made the best memories and plan to visit again soon. Our favorite part was not having a specific agenda so that we could relax and pack our days with the beauty of

I am lucky enough to travel frequently in the Bahamas and Caribbean, so for me to return to a particular place, it has to be truly special. Fernandez Bay Village is one of my "Happy Places." While it's not for everyone, the simple pleasures of FBV and Cat Island are just what

Most of the cottages are connected to another cottage but they are all still very private. The Shane Shack Cottage & Seabreeze Cottage are stand alone cottages. Our villas are stand alone as well.

All of our accommodations, except for 1, only have open air showers and stand-up showers only. There is 1 villa, Seagrape House, that has an upstairs bathroom that is completely closed in but it only has a stand-up shower. I hope this information helps.

The closest space is very small. I don't know an exact size, sorry about that.

Hello. There are a few options. I believe Silver Airways flies out of Tampa to Nassau, but i am not 100% sure on that. There is a an airline that flies directly out of Fort Lauderdale Executive to Cat Island, Watermakers Air. They are really great. They only fly on certain days to Cat Island so you might have to call and ask about the Cat Island Schedule. But if dates work with them i highly recommend this airline. Last option you can fly to Nassau and then from Nassau you would take Sky Bahamas. You want to fly into New Bight Airport. We are only 1 mile up the road from that airport. But Sky Bahamas some days only flies into Arthur's Tow Airport on Cat Island. We are about a 40 minute cab ride from that airport. I hope the above information has helped. I hope you decide to stay with us. Thanks so much. Island Smiles, Tameron Armbrister

"We loved the isolation and placement of our room the Royal Palms. It was perfect for the two of us. "
"Royal was our room"
"Ask for the "caretakers cottage""
"We like Sea Grape and Care Takers and The Beach House "
"All rooms face west to the beach. Most have a nice covered porch. The Royal Palm has a king bed and a wrap around porch"
$374 - $417 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
