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.
Our family has just returned from an awesome week at Harbour Island. Thankfully we found and booked Sanderson House for our time away. It was the perfect combination of great price, convenient location close to the beach/town while allowing privacy, lots of space, private pool access and great amenities!
Our kids ages 3, 5 and 8 had a blast! The house caters very well for family groups. It came complete with a cupboard stocked full of board games and puzzles, beach towels, beach toys, snorkel gear and access to laundry. There are plenty of bedrooms to spread everyone out, various tv areas and quiet corners. Access to the external washroom with shower was great for post swim or beach trips. The outside bar area was set up well with tv and music speaker hookup.
Darico and Frisco took great care of us. They were available to answer all questions, provide local recommendations and always responded quickly to our requests. The housekeeper service was also a nice luxury while on holiday.
For the adults we really enjoyed the daily 360 degree views from the widow's walk, the convenience of having private pool access, a great well equipped kitchen, wifi, free long distance calling and effective AC.
Great trip and a great stay at Sanderson House!
My family of 8 spent a week at this house (called Sanderson House) in February. We also rented the guest house behind it. It's hard to describe how fabulous this house is--the layout allows for many private spaces as well as places the group can be together.
Every possible amenity has been provided, i.e., everything for the trip to the beach
(towels, boogie boards, umbrellas, etc.), as well as a gorgeous pool on the premises,
outdoor grill, bar, TV's in many locations, and a kitchen with everything a cook could imagine. It is clean and well maintained and actually, the photos don't do justice to the appearance of this very special home. The bedrooms are spacious, the baths (especially on 1st floor) are luxurious, and the outdoor verandas and porches are so inviting. Everyone's favorite spot was what I call the "widow's walk" on the very top of the house, with amazing views 360 degrees. Whether it was morning coffee or evening drinks, there was always someone up there. As for getting around, we rented 2 golf carts even though we're all hikers, walkers, etc. The house is not far from the center of the little town yet far enough to be really private.
The owner and his family were most helpful with every little detail we asked about, and were available for anything that might go wrong. (Nothing did.) A housekeeper was there to clean every day, which was another bonus.
I saw some other rental properties on Harbour Island and I'd definitely put Sanderson House at the top of the list.
So look no further, this is the place to stay on Harbour Island.
We just spent the holidays on Harbour Island - our 39th trip there - and for the 2nd year stayed in Sanderson House. It was a wonderful experience. This new and spacious property had plenty of room for 9, sometimes 10 of us. The cottage in the back was a haven for the 2 senior members of the party. Everything worked, including internet, and the automatic generator was helpful for occasional power outages. The pool and outdoor bar are great for leisurly dinners and entertaining guests. The owner, Darico Higgs, spared no effort to make our stay enjoyable, even setting up our Christmas tree before we arrived! This is a wonderful property in an idyllic setting, close to the beach and very private. The sunrise viewed from the rooftop balcony was spectacular. We will be back next year!
By far best house on the island.. Very close to the beach.. Amazing owner who is on call although u won't need him.. great, respectful housekeeper who does a great job of cleaning no matter how bad the mess.. a lot more spacious then the pics show.. Overall we couldn't have been happier with the stay..
This home was sooooo much more in location, amenities, and utility than we expected! It's like your own dream home on Juicy Hill! Darico, the home owner and manager personally checked up on us and made sure all was as expected. Thee went for a family vacation with our 5 difficult to please kids (3 are in college and two in high school). I can say that NOBODY wanted to leave when the week was up! The house comes with everything including a housekeeper (we miss you too Shelly). The beautiful pink sands beach in a 2 minute walk via a trail one house down. We had the beach virtually to ourselves. Don't worry about bringing beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, etc., the house has them all. There's a wonderful pool to relax in after the pool with a bar and outdoor TV. The house also has a rooftop deck with an incredible view of the ocean and the stars at night. There is also a Vonage line for free unlimited calls to the US! The house has an automatic generator which is priceless given the daily power outages on the island. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen was perfect for home cooked island meals. You will need to rent a golf cart to get around during your stay (about $50/day) and just about everyone does. Other pointers for your stay:
-Set up your taxi pick up for the day of your departure IN ADVANCE.
-Must eat at Queen Conch (go by at about 11:30am and place your order for pick up to avoid wait).
-Must eat at Sip Sip and the sticker shock is worth it.
-Have a lunch at the bar at Valentinos Marina (Conch Po Boy)
-Have a burger and a Goombay Smash at Ma Rubys. Ask for Reggie.
-Walk out in low tide at the north end of the island to the Lonely Tree for a pic.
-Have lunch or breakfast at Dunmore Deli.
-Buy breads and baked goods at Arthur's and make sure to say hi to Arthur. He is quite the character.
-great ice cream at Tropic Hut.
Most of all, explore the island and get to know the people. We will definitely be back!!!!
