"Our family has been vacationing over the holidays on Harbour Island for 40 years and have rented Sanderson House for the last four. It is the best accommodation on the island. There were nine of us this trip and plenty of room with the small guest house much enjoyed by the senior members of the group. The pool and bar area in the back of the house is ideal tor home-cooked dinners. The owner, Darico Higgs, is attentive and available. The daily maid service is much appreciated. The 2-mile pink sand beach is a short walk away and chairs and other beach gear are available at the house. Nothing matches the sunrise as seen from the widow's walk at top of the house. This is the best vacation spot we have ever encountered."

"We were tired of the loud crowded all-inclusive holidays. Tired of beaches that you had to get up at 5 in the morning to stake claim to your chair....
As soon as we arrived at the villa I knew we were going to love it! The villa was immaculate, and well appointed. The pool was clean and its surroundings lush with colorful tropical plants surrounding it.
The priority for me is the beach. I've been to beaches around the world, and for many reasons, this one beats them all!
- the sand is extremely fine... Like flour
- it is wide with very little seaweed washed ashore
- the water is fairly shallow, which makes it light blue and great for kids and adults alike for swim and play
- very few people on the beach
- miles of walkable beach no stones
-lots of shells to collect
- we saw an Eagle Ray, a pod of dolphins, starfish, oodles of fish.
Sometimes there are no chairs at the beach at all... You just ask and they will be brought down from the locker. That's how quiet it is.
And if you like touring around, there is lots to do too!"

"My husband and I and our four children (ages 15, 13, 10 and 9) went on a guided nature hike with Ed during our vacation on South Andros over Spring Break (March 2015). It was truly one of the unexpected highlights of our vacation. The kids weren’t too keen on going on the hike initially – admittedly it was hard to leave one of the most beautiful beaches we’d ever seen to venture into the woods for a few hours. However, within minutes of starting the hike, Ed won the kids over with his engaging personality. During the hike, we learned a lot about the natural resources, animals and birds of South Andros as well as a bit about Bahamas history. Ed kept the kids interested by pointing out different plants and trees along the way and explaining what they are used for (food, building materials, etc.) on the islands. The kids particularly enjoyed the visit to the rat bat cave, where we were able to climb down into the cave and view the bats flying around. We also saw three blue holes during the hike and even went swimming in the last one we visited – which was quite an experience in itself and extremely refreshing at the end of the hike. Ed is an incredibly personable and knowledgeable guide and I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting South Andros.
After the hike Ed brought us back to his house, where we met his charming wife, Emily. Ed chopped down some sugar cane and coconuts, picked some sapodilla fruits and bananas and we all sat down for a picnic by the beach. The kids were fascinated by the way Ed chopped open the coconuts with a machete and served them fresh coconut water and coconut jelly. Between the hike and the picnic on the beach, it was truly a memorable experience for all of us and definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
While we did not stay with Ed and Emily, we did take a tour of their house and the rental accommodations. Both are extremely nice with easy access to the ocean and amazing views. Add one of the most charming couples on the island as your hosts and it’s the perfect vacation rental! We had the opportunity to see Ed and Emily a few more times before we left including at a community event, where Emily taught one of my daughters to weave straw and introduced her to some of the local girls her age. They even came to the airport to see us off the day we left. Ed and Emily made us feel like family and we will never forget their kindness and hospitality. Two of the nicest people you will ever meet!"
