My husband and I had been childhood sweethearts who lost track of each other for over 30 years. When we were blessed with rediscovering each other, we wanted a very special place to celebrate our wedding. Both of us love the ocean and wanted a beach wedding. When we discovered Pigeon Cay, it looked wonderful in the listing -----and in real life----it turned out to be beyond all our dreams. Leslie made all the arrangements for our wedding prior to our arrival on the island. Leslie was in contact with me for months discussing and planning---and developed into a dear friend. Leslie made my bouquet from fresh island flowers which also decorated the lovely and delicious cake she baked. Ned built a beautiful altar of palm fronds and bougainvillea for our wedding. Ned's sense of humor is delightful and he is an amazing chef. All our meals were wonderful, but he outdid himself with the steak and lobster dinner he prepared and then served in our cottage for our wedding dinner. Yes, there are bugs twice a day---but it is the islands! I liked the description of bites as "Cat Island Kisses". A few bites were well worth our time in paradise! The natives are so friendly and helpful. You feel like family wherever you go and never feel like a tourist. The Rake and Scrape band at Da Smoke Pot is not to be missed and Julien the bartender and band member is an absolute delight! We wanted a private, romantic spot and Pigeon Cay was perfect. Our cottage was steps from the beach and despite it being July, we only used the air conditioning two nights because of the ocean breeze and since my husband never sleeps without the air conditioning set at a level that requires me to have a blanket at home--you can see how comfortable we were. The water is beyond description. Perfect temperature and crystal clear! There is great snorkeling just a short bike ride away and Ned can direct you to many other places on the island. The reefs and their fish, coral, and plants are not to be missed. My husband found three conch shells for us on one of our snorkeling trips. The sand varies in texture and color along the coasts of Cat Island from fine white to a relatively coarse soft brown. The sand on the beach at Pigeon Cay is a gorgeous soft pink and so soft and fine that it truly can 'sugar' your skin which Bahamas tourism so proudly proclaims. We didn't find anything like it elsewhere on the island! We loved that the island was "old Bahamas" and not touristy. The decor in all the cottages is eclectic island style. Each one has its own distinct personality. Our cottage was lovely and a perfect oasis for us!! It was kept immaculate throughout our stay without us ever seeing the staff clean. Ned and Leslie are available to assist in any manner. We loved sitting on our porch secluded by beautiful island plants while relaxing, drinking in the gorgeous ocean view, and listening to the waves.Ned and Leslie know how to make their guests feel totally spoiled and well-taken care of without hovering or intruding. The Tiki bar was a great place to relax and mingle with other guests. It is a perfect romantic spot and was absolutely perfect for our wedding! Neither of us wanted to leave and we plan to return as often as possible in the coming years.
