Recent Harbour Island reviews

  • Great House, Great Week

    "Our family of five (kids 9,7, and 4) stayed for a wonderful week in Harbour Island, and Afterthought exceeded our needs and expectations. The location is central to everything--easy walk to stores, restaurants and the bay--but it feels away from the buzz of town. We usually took a golf cart to the beach because of the kids, but if you like to walk it's a very doable trek to the pink sands. The garden and patio feel lush and private because they have been so thoughtfully appointed and landscaped. The back deck is large and full of comfortable chairs and tables, and the pool is an awesome bonus. My kids spent hours in it everyday. The inside of the house is modern, comfortable and well furnished. The upstairs bedrooms are particularly charming and have great views. But the biggest thing that makes the house stand apart is that it has all the things vacation homes usually lack, like quality mattresses, nice linens, plenty of pillows, a reading lamp right where you need it, a fully-stocked kitchen, and ample glasses and silverware. The owners have also thoughtfully provided all of those little things you hate to have to buy or travel with, like hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, trash bags and cards and board games. They have also provided some big extras like beach chairs and kayaks. It's so easy to come here and just enjoy the island. And, of course, it was heaven to have Francine come and lighten the cleaning load. Made it even more of a vacation."

  • Affordable for Family of 4

    "This was a great place for our family to stay while enjoying Harbour Island. It is centrally located on the island which makes everything very easy to get to. There is plenty of shade around the place so it never got to hot inside for us. The place had everything you could need in a vacation property!"

  • Fabulous Spot on Harbour Island

    "This is a beautifully equipped home in the heart of Dunmore town. We enjoyed sunsets from the balcony and easy access to the beach, marinas and restaurants. The owner and caretakers are very attentive. We enjoyed a relaxing week with our college aged daughters. We would return in a second."

  • the house at the corner of paradise and bliss

    "My family and i stayed at the Royall Lyme for Thanksgiving 2014. We had never been to Harbor Island but my family has a tradition of going away for turkey day AND i was turning 40. So we decided that going to the island off the island off the island of Nassau was appropriate. Everything about the house and the island charmed our pants off. We were 6 total people including 2 young kids. The house and grounds were spectacular: lots of room; felt like our own little compound (cause it was), we had the pool heated and was a great post-beach option; not super-luxurious accommodations but felt very hutchinson island (which is all about understated luxury). There are wild roosters running around the island and the property which adds to the other worldliness of the place. All in all it felt like a fantastic fantasy island, where all the locals literally know all the other locals. 98% of people are super friendly. You will run into the stuck-up shop owner here and there (Blue Rooster) but that is quickly replaced with the charm you encounter everywhere else. And i have to say, I've never evert felt better, softer sand in my life. I stumbled upon this place online cause it was called the Nantucket of the Caribbean. And i heart Nantucket. They are both roll up your pant legs, get your feet sandy/dirty/wet. If you like the soul of nantucket vs the look at my yacht it's bigger than yours side of nantucket -then this is the island for you. It's a playground for people who live well but don't need to show off. Practical things to note: - the house is a stone's throw from where the water taxi drops you off. No need to take a cab when you get in. - Rock House takes itself way too seriously. Everywhere else was a better and more island-appropriate meal. - Sip Sip was fun and worth every penny. - Lunch at Coral Sands and Pink Sands was fun and fantastic - The island is $10 a gallon of organic milk and $30 lunch entree expensive - Low tide at the beach is God's gift to young kids. Perfect water. Perfect little bitty waves - Faye the housekeeper has a restaurant on friday-saturday that you should try - You can buy fish right off the dock when the guy comes back just before sunrise - Buy beer across the street from Queen Conch when sitting there to eat ($8 for 3 beers and 2 waters, best deal on the island)in the liquor store - From here you can walk to everything you'd want to walk to in town - no problem - you will want a cart though to get to the beach"
