Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Charming home- great location- was a perfect stay for my family of five

  • 5 of 5

My family (two adults and three children) rented the house for seven days and had an incredible overall time. Touchstone is 30 seconds from the beach on the south end of the island. Which is the less populated area- which we loved. The property owners provided beach chairs, towels, and coolers...which was a nice touch. The house has a great living room and modest size bedrooms. There’s three outside/deck areas which were all enjoyed. The rental staff were extremely attentive and checked in many times to make sure all was ok. We’ll definitely be back! I strongly recommend the house for a family of four or five. They also have a cottage on the same property that can accommodate even more people.

Harbour Island Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visiting Harbour Island and this trip has quickly become our favorite vacation yet. This is largely due to to the hospitality and and resourcefulness of Karina, the homeowner. In addition, of course, to her charming, wonderful abode! We traveled as a family of 5- with three young girls and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The accommodations are clean, comfortable, and the home is beautifully decorated with warm, authentic Bohemian touches. The outdoor spaces are wonderful for running around, sitting with a book, or just enjoying the tranquility of palm trees and ocean waves. Karina was always available to respond to our every question/need and shared resources that only a local could know. This made our entire experience feel so authentic and immersed in the island culture. Touchstone cottage is clearly full of love and special history and we feel so fortunate to have found this treasure!

Lovely house

  • 3 of 5

The house is as lovely as the pictures, and a very comfortable space. We love that it's over the dune from the beach, and Karina and her crew were very nice and responsive. The property's landscaping and space are wonderful as well. I would recommend checking on the status of construction in the neighborhood before renting.
