"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 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"

"Yellow Bird was a wonderful house for our family. We have three college age children who had the back house while my husband and I had the main house. The new kitchen is amazing! There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the amazing weather. We spent time at the pool and resting on the bed in the pool cabana. The kids had friends over at night to sit by the pool and have cocktails at the pool bar. We could walk to the Piggly Wiggly and to Daddy D's and the bakery. Truly an amazing vacation spot. The house is convenient and charming. It was great to have a bathroom for every bedroom. We will return!"

"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!!"
