Amazing girls get away

  • 5 of 5

This place is INSANE. We loved all the decor, everything is so well thought out, from the bed sheets to the beautiful authentic art to the fixtures etc. The house even has it's own logo! The pool was also super clutch to have around when we didn't feel like going to the beach on certain days and just staying home to relax. I mean, who doesn't love an outdoor shower?! It's right in town, so walking to restaurants and shops is a total breeze. It was clean, refined, relaxing and perfect in every way. Cannot wait to return to Coral House soon. STAY HERE, you'll be so psyched you did!!

Beautiful house in an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed a 5 night visit to Harbour Island over Thanksgiving. Staying at Coral House during our first trip to Harbour Island was a great experience. We were within close walking distance of multiple restaurants offering options for breakfast, lunch and dinner/drinks. Nearby were opportunities to purchase groceries and visit great local shops. Very easy access to beautiful beaches. Coral House is beautiful, comfortably livable and very well appointed. The owners have provided (on site) excellent, detailed listings and recommendations on a wide range of useful local topics. Certainly hope to return.

It's so tropical chic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and absolutely loved this house. It is historic so it is a little older but so charming. It was recently renovated and is still being renovated so it's only going to get better. The designer did an amazing job with the colors and décor because it's so Bahamas and super tropical chic! The pictures are exactly what the house looks like.

The location is great - you can walk to the Landing or Valentine's for breakfast and Devine wine store to stock your refrigerator :-) It has a fully stocked kitchen so it's great for long stays. If you don't want to eat out every night, you can head to Captain Bob's or Piggly Wiggly and stock up on basic snacks and cheese, etc,..., which is what we did (and they deliver too).

We were 2 couples + 2 kids. The kids and the adults really enjoyed the pool...gets lots of sun but right around 5pm it starts getting the perfect shade. We grilled lobsters one night on the patio and had a beautiful dinner in the outdoor dining room - it was dreamy! The master bedroom and bath are quite large, the other bedrooms are just the right size. And the bar by the pool is awesome so you have your beverages handy at all times.

There is full self laundry onsite, which is great for all those wet bathing suits! Kathy, the housekeeper, was there to assist when we needed her. She laundered the linens and did the basic cleaning daily (except for Sundays and Monday was a holiday). She even babysat and cooked for my niece and nephew about 5 out of the 7 nights and they absolutely loved her! The adults loved her!!! She is a total delight. And she's like McGyver...she can fix anything!

The power went out a couple of times briefly so I'm not sure if they have a generator that kicked in after 15 - 20 min or so OR if that was the electricity that was back...power outages are pretty normal in the islands so not a big deal...but I would recommend getting one :-)

Overall a fabulous place to stay and I would stay there again in a heartbeat! XOXO

Loved our stay at Coral House!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay on Harbour Island at Coral house. Super cute, clean, comfortable, updated home that had everything we needed to enjoy our week on the island. The decor is darling.

Owners have added some really sweet touches like personalized "coral house" soap and cups. The outdoor shower is awesome. A large dining table on the patio with lights strung overhead make for a charming outdoor dinner spot if you want to cook or BBQ at home. Our family loved the selection of board games, the hedgehogs throw beds in the living room and having a separate washroom with a washer and dryer. Great air conditioning and wifi. Hotel style safes in every room to keep computers and valuables safe. House is stocked with enough basic kitchen cooking tools to eat meals at home. (Eating out is expensive, so this was a great option for us).

Location is on the corner of two streets, it can be loud, but in the heart of the action which made for easy access to restaurants, marina, etc.

Because it's an historic home, the staircase up to second floor and the master bedroom is narrow and steep. Upstairs bathrooms have slanted ceilings making it a little challenging for tall people like us.

Owners and property manager were easy to work with and very responsive fixing problems or answering our questions.

Long Weekend Stay with 6 Month Old Baby

  • 5 of 5

Coral House was gorgeous and amazing. From the stylish and bright home decor, fabulous artwork, meticulous attention to design detail, amazing seashell mirrors, it is clear that the owners have put some serious time and attention into making this the perfect place to stay on Harbour Island. It is an historic old Harbour Island home that has been updated, however, it maintains the charismatic charm and feel of a bahamas beach house. We loved it!

There are two bedrooms upstairs with their own baths, and two bedrooms downstairs that share a shower but have their own toilets and sinks. There is also a refreshing outdoor shower that my husband opted for every time. It was the perfect setup for us (two couples and our 6 month old baby) We could've easily had another couple join us, too.

We did plan in advance a couple things to make it perfect for the baby: We took our sound machine and monitor and rented a pack and play from Eadie at the island children's rental company. No one was bothered by our baby that still woke up occasionally at night and we loved being able to swim with her in the house pool. When the baby napped, we could still hang out by the pool (with the monitor) and enjoy the vacation. It was great because half of the day, there was some shade in the pool with a built in pool bench and we could all be outside but keep the baby in the shade.

The pool bar was awesome because we could create our fun, cold cocktails outside by the pool without tracking wet feet into the house. There is also a laundry/bathroom in the pool house which was nice for using the restroom; we were able to have fresh suits and towels everyday and keep the baby's things clean, too.

The beach and fun lunch/dinner spots are a short walk, or quick golf cart jaunt. Downtown and shops were walkable and it was great to see the town by foot and golf cart. We got coffee each morning at Cocoa, or Bahamas Coffee Roasters, ate lunch at Sip Sip and dinner at Valentine's and The Landing. We picked up steaks and salad from the shop and grilled out at the house one night, too, which was nice to enjoy the outdoor table and chairs by the back patio and pool at the house- something we wouldn't be able to do at a resort or hotel. There is also sushi and a wine shop right down the hill from the house.

We will absolutely be back to visit Harbour Island! Coral House was perfect for us and we can't wait to return!
