We arrived Cat Island 7/13/2016 on Sky bahamas air. Richard the owner of Tailwinds picked us up. Tailwinds was more than we expected, everything was exactly like the website. We stayed in the Flap House Villa. It was perfect! The view from our Villa was amazing! Only a few steps away from the beach, you could hear the waves and...

Tailwinds is the perfect place for people who like to do their own thing. Relaxing on the beach, snorkling, beachcombing or sightseeing, Tailwinds has it all! The staff are wonderful, the food was great and the our bungalo was awesome! Although, taking a shower outside, (there is no roof, just the beautiful sky), took some getting used to!!

I want to start by saying a huge thank you to Rich (owner), Mispah, and Joe for treating us so well. We've literally been home from the airport for 20 minutes and we are already requesting time off to make a return visit with our extended family. Our 5 nights on Cat Island were hands down the best 5 nights...

Wonderful villas, fantastic beach and clear, blue Caribbean water! Peace and quiet with nothing to do, but swim, snorkel, relax, sit in the Jacuzzi, read, sleep, soak up the sun and just recharge. Food is delicious there. I had the tomato, pesto panini for lunch which was great. For our evening dinners we ordered ahead of time like by 12:00...

Never know what you get when you book online. We had never been to Cat Island before so we weren't sure what to expect. Rich met us at the door and showed us our rooms - large spacious rooms with lots of light - many of them opening up on a to-die-for view of the ocean right off the property....

Location shown on Trip Adviser is incorrect. It is near Arthur Town and on a beautiful beach. Several days after I booked the owner informed me that the room was not available (offered a studio at same price) and claimed it was due to his inability to access the internet. Only problem was that the room still showed as available...

Our first two days there it was our own private island beach, and if there are more people, a simple walk down the beach will give a similar result. More people means that both resorts are full - maybe 8. For a beach that appears to be 1.5 miles long, you decide if that means crowded. We enjoyed one of...

We stayed one night, it was more than enough. The physical environment (beach, villas, outside sitting area) are lovely. The housekeeping staff are hard working.The room we were in was poorly located and overlooked a parked truck in the back. Bed and pillows were comfortable, towels were nice and room was very clean (with a broken coffee maker).While we were...

We stayed in one of the 4 villas, and it was delightful. The beautiful beach was just steps away and we had it to ourselves most of the time. Rent a car and visit the rest of the island, especially the Hermitage. The meals at the resort were delicious.

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...
