Amazing place - would recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage sits on a private and large plot of land, surrounded by beautiful palm trees and other plants. Everything we needed was taken care of - the owners were most helpful at every step of the way, from the moment I enquired through to after we left. We had a golf buggie waiting for us, which is a really fun way to see the island, and - like the owners of this cottage - the island is full of friendly and helpful people. A most gorgeous beach is close enough that you can hear the waves at night. I've never returned to the same place twice for vacation but I would most certainly return to this little slice of paradise, and I'd recommend staying here to anyone!

Peaceful oasis on Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We thought Touchstone Cottage was a great value as far as Harbour Island goes. There is only one house and a short, lovely walk between this adorable cottage and the most beautiful, isolated beach with snorkeling right offshore. All we had to do was put on our masks and swim out to the prettiest coral, fish, and underwater rock formations I've ever seen.

The cottage itself is lovely, and larger than it appears in the photos. It is well laid out, with two beds and baths that are a mirror image of each other and offer good privacy, and a nice open kitchen/dining/living area that allowed us to spend lots of family/friend time together. There is a wall of french doors that runs the entire length of the public space, so you can look out onto the lovely, spacious grounds where coconut palms, frangipani, ginger and other tropical trees grow. We had hummingbirds come up to the flowers just outside - and didn't even have to stand up to get a good look - we could see them right from where we were sitting at the kitchen island.

I personally loved the decor of the cottage - it has lots of white that gives it a clean, modern feel, balanced with bleached wood planks on the ceiling and art/decor that give it coziness and warmth. The entire place - cottage, house, grounds - is brimming with personality!

Mark and Rachel, the property managers, were always available and super friendly.

Great cottage with plenty of space with beach at your doorstep!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a fabulous beach cottage only a few steps from what I think is the best part of the famous pink sands beach front. Plenty of room and air conditioner was already on when we arrived which was refreshing. Mark and Rachel were really hospitable too, thank you!! Will definitely recommend and hopefully return soon myself!

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on Harbour Island and the Touchstone Cottage was the perfect place for us to stay. The cottage is clean, lovely, has high ceilings, and is quite large. It is a stones throw from the most beautiful beach and water I have ever seen, which we often had all to ourselves. The grounds surrounding the cottage are lush and it is very private, quiet, and peaceful. I would highly recommend the Touchstone Cottage for anyone looking for a place to stay on Harbour Island.

Cute garden cottage by pink sands

  • 4 of 5

Thanks you to the lovely host and staff for a memorable stay at this great little hideaway. The cottage is a short (very short) walk to the beach and a fun golf cart trip to the town. The pink sand is the softest I've ever seen and the water is the clearest! The beds in the cottage were comfy and the whole place is tastefully decorated and usefully kitted out. We loved sitting on the porch watching the stars at night listening to the waves.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 rd time on Harbour Island so we were delighted to stay in Touchstone Cottage.

The best location to the whole island with minutes walk to the quiet pink sandy beach & the turquoise water.

The house had everything we needed and the ac was a luxury in every room.

The decor was super & comfy beds.

Definitely a place we'll be going back to.

Highly recommend
