Romora Bay studio description

Frommer's 2011 Guide to the Bahamas lists Chef Neff's properties as a 'Find' with an excellent review. Harbour Island is a gem in the Caribbean recently discovered by discriminating travelers. Our Island has been named the NUMBER ONE Island destination by Travel and Leisure Magazine. The pink sand beach is one of the ten most beautiful in the world (Conde Nast).

Chef Neff's suites are a three-minute walk to the beach and a two minute walk to the Bay. The two separate suites are on private grounds with woods,song birds and flowers. There is a Crow's Nest for your morning coffee while you watch the sunrise or to climb for an evening drink.

The suites' private entrances and lovely private patios make them a very special place for just you. The rate is far below any local hotel rooms, and with a kitchen included there is no reason to eat every meal out. And a day away by boat at the near-by secluded Man Island (with a picnic and snorkeling) is always a wonderful experience.

If you have a shopping bent there are boutiques to rival any place in the world -- as well as Native shops for local treasures.

Most visitors rent a golf cart to get around while here. The Bahamian $ is on a par with the USD and there is an ATM at the local bank. Credit Cards are accepted almost everywhere.

I have provided small Brink's safes in each suite for your passports or other valuables.

It just plain doesn't get any better than Harbour Island. Want to know more? Just ask Chef Neff!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel. Susan purchased the property in 2000 and spent the last nine years renovating the home and adding to it. When she left Coral Sands Hotel in 2004 she began renting two suites that she had added for guests. The gardens are especially lovely and are enjoyed by all of the guests, as is the Crow's Nest and the view from it.

                      Why the Owner Chose Romora Bay:
                      Very beautiful, private and extremely safe for all.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      Owner on property to assist 24/7. Lovely gardens to walk in and view of the ocean from Crow's Nest.
