We just finished our third 5-night stay at Tail Winds and couldn't be happier. Each time we visit Cat Island, we meet more local "fixtures" that quickly become friends. Tail Winds is the perfect place to stay if you want immediate access to the most beautiful beaches in the world, delicious food, a self-serve bar, and an immaculate villa. Rich's...

My daughter and her husband had been to Tailwinds Resort before and raved about how perfect it was, so we decided to take our first family vacation in 20 years and all go to the Tailwinds Resort on Cat Island for Christmas. Needless to say we had the most wonderful time. The villas were spotless and well cared for, the...

We stayed March 15-20, 2017. We own an airplane have done a dozen or so Bahamas "out islands" trips the past four years. We recommend Tailwinds without hesitation. The owner, Richard, picked us up from the airport, and stopped at the small grocer so we could pick up a few things. The villas are spacious, clean, well constructed and well...

It was so wonderful last year, we decided to come back. It was as good or better. What's not to like about your own beach, apparently deserted, three miles long of beautiful clean sand and clear blue-green water? Two of the four villas enjoy an uninterrupted view of the ocean (see photo); all are clean, well-appointed with kitchen and king-size...

A clean and quiet, well maintained "resort" with the caribbean sea practically out your doorstep. The villas all face west where a few coconut trees and small palm trees are the only things between you and the beach; literally 15 yards away where you can listen to the gently rolling surf from your room; or the tiki bar, or a...

That's what Richie said we were, because by definition, we "walked in" for our meals but didn't stay there. Given a notepad, told to write our names on it, then shown the ropes about the honor bar, we got our first drink - "Make whatever you want!" Richie encouraged, so us newbies went behind the bar and like kids in...

We had the entire beach to ourselves! Kayaks were easily accessible. We had fun kayaking, swimming, and walking the beach. Richard was very hospitable and took care of all of our needs, breakfast lunch and dinner. We will definitely return! We missed our connection on the first day, make sure you go to the express lane on the left for...

We stayed at Tail Winds in the middle of December it was an amazing experience! The beach is right outside your Villa; you can hear the ocean waves crash as you sleep. The beach was absolutely beautiful with the softest sand you will ever step in, the views there are out of this world, you won't find anyone else walking...
