"We absolutely loved The Banyan Cottage! We were looking for an affordable house on HI and we loved this cedar, no frills cottage! My husband, 2 college aged daughters, and I couldn't have picked a better place for the price. Alexis, the house manager, answered all of our questions. The internet stopped working and she came over with a new router. Harbour Island is beautiful and the sand is actually pink. The first night we went to Ramora Bay and listened to calypso music and then ate at Aquapazza. It was so good and a beautiful setting! We ate at The Rock House for dinner one night and it was delicious. We also ate at Valentines which has an excellent view of the sunset and more affordable. We ate at Ma Ruby's twice and enjoyed meeting Dr. Lee and Ma Ruby! We also enjoyed the Cheeseburger in Paradise! Tiki Hut was fun if you like loud music. We had lunch at Sip Sip and The Blue Bar and it was expensive, but good. The Lobster Quesadilla at Sip Sip is excellent & basically fed all of us! We also ate down on Bay Street near the docks several times. Loved The Queen Conch- the conch salad is awesome as well as fried conch and fried lobster! The night life was pretty dismal Christmas week, but we heard the week after Christmas is hopping! We rented bikes, golf cart, and a boat one day from Michael's and we were very happy! Michael greeted us the day we arrived and escorted us to our cottage! One thing to know, the cottage did not have chairs, umbrella, or snorkeling gear. We were lucky because we had family that rented another house on the island that had plenty of chairs and their beach was right next to The Dunmore. Everything on Harbour Island, for the most part, is expensive. When you're packing, throw in coffee, cereal & snacks- you'll be glad you did! A case of beer is 50 bucks. Liquor is not bad- we found a liquor store on Bay Street that had great prices on wine! We had an excellent week in Harbour Island!"
