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!
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!
Harbour Island Escape
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!
Thank you Sallie for such a heartfelt and heartwarming review, we are thrilled you were able to experience the real Bahamas, and chose us to be a part of your adventure! All our love and come back and visit us again soon!
Beautiful Home Steps away from pink sands
What a GEM! This house & the folks who manage it are just a pleasure! The house is beautiful & the location, just steps from the beach, was perfect! I plan to return & would highly recommend this beautiful property!
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.
This house has so much charm. 🌟
