  • The Blue Dolphin is a MUST.

    "We stayed at the Blue Dolphin this past Thanksgiving holiday week. We won our stay at the Blue Dolphin at a fundraising event. The house setting is serene and sublime. It is centrally located. It is at a walking distance from the pier, and 10 minuted walk to the beautiful pink sandy beach. It faces the west allowing us to enjoy gorgeous sun sets everyday of our stay. At night the neighborhood comes to life. We had a chance to wittness a couple of rehersal for the Junkanoo parade, joining them in dancing. The house is surrounded by grocery stores, Arthur-the best breakfast and bakery in town, several craft stores and restaurants. As for the house itself, well we fell in love with it. It is charming, welcoming, can easily accomodate 15 people, yet you can have your own privacy as there are 5 seperate master-bedrooms. We enjoyed having breakfast on the back porch overlooking the secluded, well maintained, attractive backyard. We enjoyed relaxing on the hammock, under the palm tree, sitting around the fire pit surrounded by a tropical lush greenery. The owners, Kathy and Jamie made sure that we are welcomed and well served. The house came with a wonderful house keeper, a friendly gardner/fisherman (who could supply you fish if interested), and a talented cook, who happened to own a restaurant nearby that served Bahamian food. As for the native people, they are extremely welcoming, friendly and happy to serve you- except for "grouchy Mr. Jonhson" from the golf cart rental shop. Do not worry, there are several other cart rental stores. Yes, most people travel using golf cart. We enjoyed everday of our stay. We went hicking along the southern shore, deep sea fishing, walked everyday the sandy beach. It was also the most relaxing, beautiful vacation ever. It is a piece of Heaven on earth. The day of our departure, a feeling of sadness took our hearts as we were not ready to go back to reality. We wished if we could stay longer. But deep inside we knew that we shall return. The Blue Dolpin is a MUST."

  • Absolute Heaven

    "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"

  • Excellent stay

    "Very nice house with friendly, hospitable staff. The bedrooms are generous in terms of space and so is the living room. The kitchen flows well with the great room and offers maximum space. The property was in sublime condition upon arrival. This includes the pool, which was a nice amenity. The owners was courteous and friendly- they facilitated our stay, pre-arrival. The property is nicely located and the neighboring houses did not create a problem in terms of noise or space. The front yard is spacious and can accommodate numerous golf carts. Experienced some minor difficulties with the wireless, which we ensured was fixed. There was also a slight lack of fresh towels throughout our stay- I recommend asking Shalese, the housekeeper, to wash these as frequently as needed. Beside this, this was overall a fantastic stay- looking forward to doing this again."

  • Perfect vacation house!!

    "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!!"
