"We arrived at the dock by water taxi, on the morn of July 16, to find it was only a short walk to the Blue Dolphin. We could've taken a taxi or a golf cart to our weekend hideout, but we decided to taste the local flavor by hoofing it 3 very short blocks. Don't ya love bags w/wheels? We came off the dock, turned left, (north), and in 5mins we were home. VERY COOL. The staff had the A/C dialed in, and the Dolphin was spacious. We flopped down on the bed, w/smiles on our faces. After a min or so, we unpacked, & got to the business of getting to know "da eye-land". That's always the fun part. Rented a golf cart & cruised around for cpl of hrs. You CANNOT get lost on Harbour Island. "Wax on, Wax off". The bay is west, the ocean east. I cannot say enough about Blue Dolphin sunsets. INCREDULOUS!!! Island food a blk or two away. Ck out Brian's, for some GREAT home cooked food, in a "locals" atmosphere. We had one major glitch in the Blue Dolphin Matrix. NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!😎. Ck it out. If u like local flavor, you'll love it. If u like snooty and presumptuous, go to a resort that separates u from da eye-land cultcha. For a good groove, the Blue Dolphin fits very well. Peace

"We had the distinct pleasure of spending a week in this little cottage, a small paradise with a spectacular hostess. The property is beautiful, well maintained and quiet. Within a couple of minutes you are lounging on an expansive beach, almost by yourself, listening to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
The cottage is well maintained, organized and very cosy. Everything you need is there and if it isn't, Rosie will do her best to get it for you. Rosie is a very interesting and fascinating woman who was so helpful and accomodating, even beyond the call of duty...
The cottage is located at the south end of the island in a nice quiet neighborhood. As is the norm, we had a golf cart rented which allowed us to come and go as we pleased.
We strongly recommend at stay at the Mermaid Retreat and take time to chat with Rosie. She is an amazing woman and we loved our week with her.
Rosie, Thank you again for your help, your compassion and your stories. Miss you,
The Allains & the Whites
New Brunswick, Canadao"

"I recently spent two lovely weeks at Oleander in Dunmore Town on Harbour Island, and it was perfect! Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the ocean, it is perfectly situated down a lovely side street. A very comfortable and charming house, with a well equipped kitchen and lots of wonderful outdoor spaces to choose from. The owners are wonderful, charming and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Oleander and certainly stay there again!!"

Perfect place for a play date with dear friends......
"Harbor Island is incomparable with regards to the perfect island getaway. Tranquil turquoise waters surround this laid back paradise of pastel colored houses, friendly locals, wonderful dining spots, and most of all, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This 3 mile stretch of soft pink sand, with its gentle surf and warm trade winds, will beckon you to just come and relax the day away, and when done, you get to go back to Gulememi Bluff!
The Bluff is welcoming, is tastefully decorated, with 4 beautiful bedroom suites, a large indoor kitchen and living room area, but even better is the outdoor area. The pool deck is huge, with lots of relaxing lounge chairs that flows easily from one area to the next, with an amazing westerly water view where we watched the most amazing sunsets with our friends. Add the bbq for the locally caught lobster and bacci ball court, or take out the kayaks for a run on the crystal clear waters.
The location of the house is really convenient but "tucked away" enough to make it very private. The home owners and housekeeper were so helpful with anything regarding the house or local information and hot spots.
We cant wait to come again."
