About Susan Neff

Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel in 1998. Susan purchased the property in 2000 and spent the last nine years renovating the home and adding to it. When she left Coral Sands Hotel in 2004 she began renting two suites that she had added for guests.

The gardens are especially lovely and are enjoyed by all of the guests, as is the Crow's Nest and the view from it.

Susan is usually there and she lives in the property.

It is a lovely place to spend a holiday.

Susan Neff purchased this villa in 2000

Why Susan Neff chose Harbour Island

Very beautiful, private and extremely safe for all.

Perfect Island Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Briland is a beautiful part of the world and Chef Neff provides everything you need to enjoy it. My wife and I stayed in the Getaway for an entire week, smiling throughout. Susan was wonderful to deal with during the booking process and we were welcomed onto the island with no issue. From there, the property allowed us to relax, explore, and appreciate the wonder of this glorious place each hour of every day. The crow's nest is a wonderful attribute as are the beautiful flowers and trees.

If you want to experience the true essence of island life, this property is the perfect place to start.

We will be back.

A Steal for Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

Yep, that's right. It's probably the best deal on the Island. The house is quiet, yet close to a Marina and the best part of the most beautiful, uncrowded beach on the island. It may be the number one beach we've every experienced. The gardens are well kept and the two helpers Edna and Troy were terrific. I can't say enough about them.

Like others have stated, having a kitchen on the island is a godsend if one is trying to save some money. Getting out of any restaurant there for under $100 for two would be a good trick.

We brought coffee with us and got great baked goods at Arthur's for breakfast. Late in the afternoon we went down to the fishermen's docks and scored grouper or snapper for some dinners and procured basics at the grocery store. Captain Bobs was our choice for this. The best deals for wine and beer seem to be at 700, but there are other places as well.(Kalik was just fine for me and a fair price at 700) Of course we ate out, also, but it made it a lot easier on our check book during our stay. All the restaurants on the island, at least the ones we went to, were superb.

Susan Neff was a great communicator and always answered our questions in a timely fashion. I wish we could have met her in person. Susan recommended a golf cart for the week and that was wonderful. Everything is close by.

I guess it's easy to say, if you want a place for the beach, want to experience the extremely friendly people that live on the island, and your budget is not too cramped, this is the place, and Chef Neff's is outstanding. We'll be back.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Chef Neff's suite was perfect for my vacation! Having a kitchen was not only an excellent way to save money, but it made my whole experience that much more relaxed. I didn't have to waste precious time debating where to go for coffee or how to satisfy the urge for a late night snack.

The property is beautiful and well-cared for, very peaceful, and so close to the beach that I walked there and back sometimes a couple times a day.

It was also the perfect balance between feeling cared and provided for, and given lots of privacy. I will definitely return!

Fantastic! Hidden Jewel of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a splendid time at Heron's Nest. The property is truly charming. The yard is beautifully landscaped and our room was super clean. The rooftop deck (crowns nest) is a great place for happy hour/sunset or breakfast. Susan is very friendly and a great cook (she treated us to fresh baked zucchini bread and scones). Susan was kind enough to arrange for our golf cart rental (a must for traveling around the island), it was awaiting us upon arrival. We love Harbour Island and can't wait to go back. A big thank you to Susan for making our vacation be so great.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to HI in the last few years. Our first visit we stayed in a hotel which we thought HI couldn't get any better; but it did get better on this visit. We stayed at Heron's Nest which was perfect for us. Susan is great host, very personable and knows the island very well. She goes beyond to make your visit delightful. Chef's Getaway and Heron's Nest is secluded from town but just minutes away. We feel HI is the simple life but truly paradise and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Susan for all you do.
