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!
Dani, you're a pleasure and a treat as a guest! Thank you so much for the Kind words and for noticing the small details that we have put into our home to make it a special place for our guests to enjoy !
Bahamian bungalow with amazing garden
Thoughtfully decorated Bahamian home on grounds with wonderful garden. This home was not only beaming with character, but also a hop skip and jump from the picturesque pink sand beach on Harbor Island. Convenient to everything Harbor Island offers, it was a treat. Just down the street live music on the dock of the Ramora Club was a fun way to catch sunset.
We spent 4 nights 5 days at the Touchstone property in Harbor Island for my 30th Birthday with 2 other couples, we rented both houses on the property and it was so nice to have the whole tropical bungalow to ourselves- I highly recommend it! Both properties are just steps away to the famous pink sand beach and very close to Romora Bay Marina (great Happy Hour) and other quaint restaurants. While we were there we rented 2 golf carts from Johnsons rentals, fished with Jef Fox on the Ocean Fox, and took the water taxis over to Eleuthera to see Queens Bath, the Blue Hole, and Preachers Cave. I could not have asked for a more picturesque vacation and the Touchstone team took very good care of us to make sure all of our needs were met! I highly recommend staying at this property and renting both cottages.
Amazing Bahamian Bungalow
We traveled to Harbour Island with out 3 teenagers this past week and stayed in this quaint, cozy and authentic Bahamian bungalow. It had everything we could want and expect in a vacation rental. Karina, Mark, and Rachel were super accomodating and welcoming. Every recommendation given by Karina was spot on. We all fit comfortably and loved being a stones throw from our very own private beach every day! Thank you Kerina and we hope to vist Briland again!
Touchstone is amazing! Its classy and comfortable, with two amazing outdoor areas where we spent most of our time. The house is right over the dune from the ocean, so you can hear the waves at night. It felt hotel like with all of the fresh linens & towels, and the Master Bed & a/c combo was a dream... I haven't slept that well in forever. Highly recommend!!!
Take me back!
The Touchstone House is the perfect embodiment of the Bahamas and Harbour Island. It has a tropical, laid back, beachy feel and all the amenities you need. We had wonderful nights cooking dinners inside, having happy hour on the multiple patios and playing board games in the generous living room. The house is only a minute walk away from the beach which makes it the perfect oasis for a hot day. The house was clean, well-maintained, had fast internet, TV, showers, kitchen supplies, hairdryers and comfy linens. We can't wait for our next trip to The Touchstone House!
