Owner Description

Sarah and I love traveling and have been visiting Cat Island for 17 years. I grew up exploring the Out Islands of the Bahamas by boat, and have ventured throughout the islands regularly since 1967. We bought this spectacular beachfront property in the late 1990's, but finished building the "Boathouse" in January 2007. We moved back to the USA 7 years ago after living 3+ years in Costa Rica and another 3 years living in Mexico. Both our boys are grown; our youngest (marine biologist) is engaged in Sustainable Fisheries in Portland, Maine, and the oldest is in International Business Development living in California.

Why We Chose Pigeon Cay

Cat Island is truly an unspoiled paradise. The people are wonderful and still wave to everyone as they pass. The Boathouse sits on a beautiful white sand beach with water clear as gin. The beach runs for 3 miles, but you can spend days without seeing another soul (read the guest comments). Snorkeling, scuba diving and "bonefishing on the fly" are among other favorites. Our property is 3 1/4 acres and is surrounded by water on 3 sides. You can launch the kayaks or the canoe behind the house on Pigeon Creek and paddle around to our beach on the ocean. Leslie Kennedy lives on-island and manages the house for us. She will greet you upon your arrival and familiarize you with the house. The Boathouse is professionally cleaned and maintained and Leslie is available to answer any questions you may have or provide assistance with anything you may need.

The Unique Benefits of the "Boathouse on Cat Island"

The use of kayaks, canoe and bicycles are included with your stay at the Boathouse. There are 2 single kayaks and a tandem to choose from. You can bike for miles on the sea road or ride on the main road to Bennett Harbor for lunch at Sammy T's, Ducky's or Derrick's conch shack. We enjoy cooking and have equipped the Boathouse with a Jenn Air Convection oven/microwave, Jenn-Air Stovetop, Ice maker, and a 36,000 BTU Stainless Weber. There is Calphalon cookware, a Waring commercial blender, and an ice cream/sorbet maker. There are 12 foot decks which encircle the entire house perfect for reading, relaxing, cocktails, or just taking in the incredible views. Ceiling fans are installed throughout the house and on the decks (11 in total). Although rarely needed, the house is also fully air conditioned.
