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 !
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!
Beautiful home on magical island
Beautiful home and a wonderful, caring team that took care of any need promptly and happily! Location is amazing and perfect for families. The 7 year old in our group loved practicing her gymnastics in the large yard and running over the dune to the beach. We felt safe and comfortable allowing her to run back to the house by herself when she forgot all the things a young girl needs.
BEST TRIP EVER!
Karina and the home caretakers were simply amazing to work with. Every detail from arrival to departure was completely taken care of. The house was beautifully decorated and perfectly comfortable for the 2 couples in our party. the beach was literally steps away from the house and it was THE most spectacular beach that we had ever seen. the house was perfectly stocked with all the necessities(beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, beach bag, etc). I would suggest renting a golf cart for your stay and hitting the grocery stores when you arrive. stock up on booze and basics. the restaurants on the island are very pricey, especially if you plan to eat out every single meal. sip sip was our favorite lunch spot and for a casual dinner in, we loved the pizza at Tropic Hut. we went to the dock at Romora Bay every night to see the yachts, watch the fisherman bring in their catch and take in the beautiful sunset. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and island with us!
Thank you Brook for your lovely and thoughtful review, you all were a treat to host and we are blessed to have guests like you. We are thrilled you enjoyed yourselves, please come back and visit us again soon!
Love Karina and Touchstone Co.
Charming home- great location- was a perfect stay for my family of five
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.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Zack, it was our greatest pleasure hosting you and your family! We look forward to your return in the near future!
