BEACHFRONT Banana Wind Cottage – FALL SPECIALS and Long Term Rentals Welcome
The Banana Wind is a beach lover’s paradise. Located on a private white sand beach, you can sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the sunrise or have an island drink and watch the sunset over the ocean. The bay that this island home is located on has plentiful coral reefs and snorkeling is amazing. You will see rays, parrot fish, blue tangs, snapper, lobster, octopus and much more. The kitchen is a brand new granite kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
Kayaks are available for exploring the reef and the nearby creek which is great for bone fishing. Local restaurants are only minutes away if you would like to eat out or order take out. The Banana Wind is a place to get away from it all! This is a place you will want to return to every year.
Restaurants are also close by. One is within walking distance and there are several other restaurants within 5-20 minutes that feature a mix of Bahamian cuisine and traditional American style food. If you don’t feel like going out, you can order takeout from one of the close local restaurants and they will deliver to your oceanfront vacation rental. You can also order a meal to be ready upon your arrival so that you can sit back and have a contrail and enjoy the view after a day of traveling.
The Banana wind house is 1 mile from a small grocery store that has all of the necessities. The main grocery store is located 20 minutes away. Upon your arrival our caretaker will be there to greet you and assist you to the house and show you to the close fully stocked local grocery store and assist with a car rental if you desire.
The Banana Wind house has panoramic views of the turquoise ocean, so whether you are in the house or sitting on the deck, you have fabulous views of the ocean. There are 2 bedrooms, both with new Queen mattresses. One bedroom has a private bathroom and there is a separate shared bathroom. There is also a sleeping loft above the living area with a full bed for 2 additional guests.

One of the highlights of Cat Island is that it has the highest elevations of all of the 700 Bahamian islands. This high point is known as Mt. Alvernia. It is a must see when you visit Cat Island and is a short 15 minute drive from the house. The views from Mt. Alvernia are absolutely amazing. On top of Mt. Alvernia is the landmark known as “The Hermitage” which is a small monastery built in the early 1900’s by Father Jerome from England who lived up on Mt. Alvernia until his death. After your hike to the Hermitage, have some authentic Bahamian cuisine at The Blue Bird restaurant located at the end of the road leading up to Mt. Alvernia.
Other highlights of Cat Island are the “blue holes” on the center of the island that communicate with the ocean and of course, the numerous beautiful private white sand beaches.
