  • Picture Perfect

    "Being from Florida, my husband and I had the idea that the Bahamas was just a tourist cruise ship destination until we visited last year. Boy were we wrong! I couldn't believe how close the flight is and we had never been there. We have traveled to a lot of beautiful beaches but this one tops the list! Touchstone Cottage is literally steps to the beach. The first time I saw it when I walked up the dune my heart melted and I became instantly relaxed. The water is turquoise blue and the sand looks like a peachy pink color in the sun's light! The water was refreshing and gentle and the best part is most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. Having the beach access is priceless. The Cottage itself was also so adorable and very private. It has a large open living room and kitchen and the two rooms on each side has it's own bathroom. I highly recommend renting a golf cart (easily arranged by the property manager) to get around the island. It's nice to be just a short distance from town, you really feel more like a local. The town also has all the conveniences you need- grocery store, liquor store and local restaurants. I highly recommend eating at Aquapazza at sunset- you'll fall in love all over again! My husband and I were with another couple but the Cottage is also good for a family of 4 or for a girls trip. Everything can be arranged very easily by the property manager, even getting a car for the day to go to Eleuthera. I am so nostalgic about the trip and hope to go back there again. The Cottage and the town are truly magic!"

  • A perfect Christmas 2015

    "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!"

  • Best stay at Harbour Island yet

    "This was our fourth visit to Harbour Island, having previously stayed on yacht, hotels, a different cottage, and now, Afterthought. This was the top! The description of this lovely place is spot on! The location is absolutely primo. All the amenities make for the perfect stay! The pool makes for a wonderful addition. The housekeeper Is punctual (daily!) and attentive, and was in and out before you knew it. My motto is that when you discover things that excel is quality, value, predictability, and stand out above the rest, you try to re-discover them frequently. We are already planning a return trip to Afterthought!"

  • Gumelemi Bluff is A Perfect Mix and More

    "We couldn't have had a more perfect mix of beauty, privacy and access. The owners were very thoughtful concerning travelers needs and were available to answer any questions concerning the use of the house and navigating the island. It was so special to have the housekeeper who was wonderful and took care of any of our needs. The spacious comfort and nice accommodations of this home were a real luxury. Having the fun activities available - bocce, ping pong, a pool, relaxing poolside loungers, kayaks and paddle boards were a real bonus! All four couples were so greatful to have had such a wonderful place to stay and want to definitely return to Gumelemi Bluff!"
