For weeks we searched for the absolutely PERFECT place on earth for our vacation, that we could afford. We wanted: - Clear and turquoise water - A lonesome, white, sandy beach - A clean, beautiful house with a breathtaking view - Cocktails and other drinks at any time - Delicious food - Getting in contact with a view other guests...

What an Amazing beach!! Rooms were great too! Only bad thing is the owner. Sad, but he drinks way too much and is very rude to his staff. Uncomfortable feeling when he was around. I hate to write that, but it really was upsetting to see his behavior on a daily basis.

Having visited the Maldives on many occasions we wanted to find something similar but without quite such a long flight. After much searching we decided the Bahamas Out Islands and Cat Island in particular would be the perfect location. We weren't disappointed - although Cat Island is fairly basic (in a good way) its peace, beautiful beaches and clear turquoise... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tail Winds a few years back and it brings a smile to our faces every time we think of this trip. If you're looking for a place to rewind without the hustle and bustle of resorts I cannot recommend Cat Island and Tail Winds enough! We enjoyed having the private beach steps away from... More

Amazing place - my friend & I were looking for a weekend escape from Nassau and chose Tailwinds on a whim. Rich actually opened the place up for us (as the season wasn't open until Nov. 1st) and went above and beyond from the moment we got there. He had Sands on tap flowing, our favorite beer and even cracked... More

Reviews are exactly as it is. Small place on a beautiful beach and picturesque scenery. Rich is a true ex-pat New Yorker with huge heart that landed on the this amazing piece of sand and never left. If your looking for Starbucks, super fast Wifi, and cell service: go away this is not the place for you. Speaking as a... More

Most of the reviews I read prior to booking ended up spot on. Cat Island and the north end, in particular, is the perfect place to unwind, decompress, relax, revel, and chill. If you want amazing beaches, lovely people and great fellow travelers, this is the place for you. The locals were kind and gracious and our fellow travelers were... More

There isn't much to say that has not already been written. Staff is excellent, everyone feels like family at Tail Winds. Location is amazing. We rented a car one day we were there and looked around many of the other resorts on Cat Island. We still think Tail Winds in the best decision. For variety, walk, drive or cab it... More

Like most on Cat Island, Tail Winds is a small resort. Four bungalows right on the beach and a few more rooms behind the restaurant. Tail Winds is not a resort for extravert party addicts who are thinking of Las Vegas fun and games. It is heaven in a (coconut) nutshell for the rest of us rather introverted peaceful couples...
