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!

Beautiful home, exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home and will definitely stay here again. It was exactly as pictured and was perfect for our needs and so close to the beach (just up a short hill). We rented a golf cart which was needed because it is a little ways to town. We really can't say enough good things about this home.

Perfect setting with pure Bahamian charm

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been coming to H.I for 8 years, what’s most important is having a 2nd home to sink into and decompress. Touchstone instantly commands you to feel like a Brilander. The house is perfectly appointed, every consideration is made with style and care. Karina is a joy and along with the capable service team who can provide any immediate assistance, it’s absolute heaven.

Cool Surfer home steps to gorgeous spacious beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved Touchstone!!! It has this cool surfer vibe with beachy decor and literally on the other side of the dune from the beautiful pink sand beach. We could hear the waves at night while we had cocktails on one of the several patios around the house. Our friends rented Touchstone cottage at the same time and that house is also really beachy with beautiful and interesting, eclectic decor. It worked out great as both families had privacy but we were close enough to join together for cocktails at night. Both homes were clean and well appointed. The welcome treats were such a nice thing to receive upon entering the home our first day. The homes had great books and magazines to read. We loved being able to walk home to eat lunch and then head right back to the beach. It gave the kids so much freedom to come and go on their own. The island itself is so accessible and safe. The shops and restaurants are excellent and just enough. There are numerous great quality restaurants to choose from- Sip Sip, The Dunmore, Acuapazza, Arthurs, Coral Sands, Queen Conch- all delicious. Besides the golf cart rental we rented bikes from Michaels Cycles and had so much fun riding around the island. We also rented a boat from Lil Shans and had a great day snorkeling with the sea turtles, fish and saw beautiful huge starfish. There was also great surf on the beach which kept my kids swimming all day. The waves were big but never unsafe- perfect for just fun body surfing. Karina, the homeowner, was responsive and so nice to deal with and the couple that manages the home were very responsive to all our needs. This house is going on our favorites list. Thank you for making your homes so comfortable, clean and welcoming!!!

The perfect beach escape!

  • 5 of 5

Touchstone house was everything we could of imagined and SO much more! The house is unique, charming, luxurious, and overflowing with comfort! The kitchen and grill were amazing, we cooked 2 dinners and had breakfast and lunch every day at the house! The bathroom accommodations are something you with find in the states, and top notch! The bed linens were extremely soft better! The main living are and dining are is out of this world! We spent so much time relaxing and enjoying all the space this house offers! The patios off every bedroom are a huge plus. We enjoyed so much time outside listening to the waves crash being footsteps from pink sand beach! The access to the beach is literally steps out the front door which is the best perk anyone could ask for when booking a home! We would Choose Touchstone again and again!
