My girlfriends and I had the privilege of staying at Touchstone's House twice in one month. Upon arrival, we were met by the property managers who were incredibly gracious and informative about the house and the island. The house itself is beautifully decorated in addition to being very well appointed with all of the amenities one would ever need to feel like they are home. Small usually overlooked details such as perfectly placed power strips really evidence the thought that Karina has put into making this house a wonderful and effortless place to stay. The numerous outdoor spaces also allowed us to live and lounge seamlessly between the indoors and outdoors. The location of the house is ideal with the beach basically in your backyard, the bay- only a few minutes' walk away and the main part of town - a quick golf cart ride away. In addition, Karina was incredibly accommodating, super responsive and so easy to work with while we were planning both our visits. We could not recommend this house any higher.

Harbour Island has and will always be a special place for us and being able to stay at Touchstone has made it even more special - which we didn't think was possible! Touchstone's House is now our home away from home and we cannot wait to return!

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

From the time I booked this property, I was very impressed with the responses from Karina. The house was perfect for the two of us, very relaxing and quiet. The beach is absolutely amazing and it seems like you are the only people there. We really enjoyed listening and watching the afternoon storms that rolled in from the porch off of the kitchen. Karina, Mark and Rachel are so accommodating and everything we needed was provided. We were so impressed with this property and the island atmosphere that we are planning on bringing our children and spouses with us next year. I think this is our new favorite vacation spot! I have absolutely fell in love with HI. I highly recommend this property to anyway willing to get away from it all and relax.

25th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from beautiful Harbour Island for our 25th wedding anniversary. Staying at Touchstone House made this a very memorable trip. The house is beautifully appointed with everything you need. I did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything I needed. And those air conditioner units cooled us like we where at our own home. Only a few steps over the dune to the beautiful pink sand beach. That view is amazing. Lots of outdoor seating but it was hot and humid. I highly recommend the house or the cottage. The cottage may get more of a breeze but you cant beat either one. Thank you Mark for showing us around. Cant wait to return

Best vacation house EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Touchstone house is the perfect setting for an amazing vacation in HI. Located 2min away from a pink sandy paradise beach, which feels like your own private beach, and equipped with beach chairs, towels and even beach hats! The house itself has a wonderful feel-good vibe, mostly due to the careful decoration and furniture arrangement, as well as the outdoor spaces that offer pure moments of Bahamian relaxation. Karina, and Mark and Rachel, are super accommodating and welcoming and make sure that you have everything you need for your stay. This is my third time staying at Touchstone and every time it gets better!!! Touchstone has played a big part in my Bahamian vacation and is very close to my heart! I would recommend it without a second thought!

Perfect Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Touchstone was exactly what I was looking for in this vacation. Quiet, peaceful and cozy with a beautiful beach just over the dune.

This home is beautifully and comfortably appointed with everything you need to feel at home. I really appreciated the floppy beach hats too as they are a pain to travel with.

Rachel and Mark are the wonderful caretakers who make sure you know where everything is and really take care of the property.

I will surely visit again soon!!

Will any trip in the future measure up?

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Touchstone House for an anniversary trip. Here are the reasons why this stay has set a new standard for every trip we take in the future: The gracious property managers, Mark and Rachel, met us at the ferry dock upon arrival, escorted us to the house, and made sure we had everything we needed. Which we did... the house has everything you could ever want for a vacation in paradise—gorgeous decor, a well stocked kitchen & wet bar, tv & internet, beach gear (even down to sun hats!), an outdoor grill, and too much more to name. The interiors are thoughtful and truly feel Bahamian, from the live palm branches in vases throughout to the vintage floor tile to the reclaimed wood furniture. As far as the location—it is wonderful... steps away from the beach and a quick golf cart ride away from all the shopping and dining you'd like to do in Dunmore Town. We loved taking the two minute ride over to Romora Bay at happy hour to catch the sunset over the water while sipping a Goombay Smash (or two). As fun as it was to go out and about on Harbour Island, we equally enjoyed time relaxing at Touchstone House with the music on, feet still a little sandy from the beach, and not a care in the world. This vacation was at the top of our list... Harbour Island has a big place in our hearts from here on out and I thank Touchstone House (and Karina) in large part for that.
