My wife and I have been to Eleuthera several times but wanted to try a different out island this year. We were looking for something even more deserted than Eleuthera and Cat is advertised as a seriously laid back place that everyone calls “the real Bahamas” so that sounded about right for us.
We have stayed in private rental homes in Eleuthera as compared to a resort type setup and wanted the same for Cat. After some internet research we decided to book the Poodle House which is just outside of Port Howe on the south coast. The owner, Bruce, was great to work with prior to our trip so we had a good feeling about the accommodations.
I did my best to take notes along the way so I could put together a detailed trip report, and will probably bore many with same detail, but I know that information about Cat is hard to come by and the Cat Island TA Forum is not the most active place.
