We stayed for a week in July 22-29 and had a great time relaxing, touring the island and enjoying the beach and water - which was clear and warm mostly calm during our stay. Frank and Gabby are great host - make sure you engage them in conversation about the island and the business. OK so here are the highlights:... More

My husband and I decided to fly ourselves to the Bahamas from the US and do a couple of Out Islands. We chose this and the Berry Islands. Shannas Cove by far had the best beach, best food, and most relaxed atmosphere. The private bungalows are straightforward--modern shower, immaculate everything, and nice sized refrigerators (bring drinking water or buy theirs... More

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days in late June of this year. We chose Shanna's Cove because of the Trip Advisor reviews. We were looking for a place where we could get away from everything and decompress for a while. I was skeptical that any place could consistently receive 5 star reviews, but I was very pleasantly...

This was our 4th visit to Cat Island. We have always made at least 1 trip to Shanna's Cove for lunch and or dinner as we rent a house south of them. The food is Delicious(Simon is a fantastic cook) and the view is a million dollar view. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Frank has shown us their... More

Simple but elegant. Wild but refined. It is a challenge to fully describe our experience at Shannas Cove Resort. Can't say enough about how skilled Frank and Gabi are at always being there when you need them, but giving you the space to explore the Island. Our main interest there was snorkeling - and the Island did not disappoint. There... More

What can I say that hasn't been already said by the glowing reviews; this is simply the best vacation we have ever enjoyed from our extensive Caribbean travels. NOTE: don't come in thinking that Cat Island is Nassau and that there is extensive night life and partying. This is simply a relaxing getaway in paradise! The beach in front of... More

I hate to the first person to give 4 stars, as there was so much good about this place, but for three days of our visit, there was loud music from down the beach that disturbed the tranquility we came for. The beach is so beautiful, you just want to lay back and relax, but with the music audible even... More

This place is a must to get away from life's rat race. The peace and tranquility of Shannas Cove is magical to say the least and Frank and Gabi are the perfect hosts.

We were out exploring Cat Island and stopped in! Such great people! They invited us to go down and check out the beach. We spent some time swimming then headed back up for some drinks and lunch! My granddaughter said the pizza there was the best!
