Lovely home on Harbor Island
Our foursome spent 5 bucolic days at Still Point. This home is perfectly situated, beautifully and lovingly decorated, and has much more space than photos suggest. There is main house with downstairs master and bath, upstairs twin bedroom with bath, fully equipped kitchen. There is a beautiful garden with shaded terrace, dining table, couch and chairs, reading lights as well as landscape lighting of palm trees that lends magical flare at night. The guest cottage is actually almost as large as the main house, with large bedroom/sitting area with vaulted ceiling, walkin closet, large bathroom. There is a gorgeous and spacious rooftop deck with views out over the ocean--did I mention that the house is about ten feet from the water, looking out over the bay and with its own dock where you can tie up a boat for the week? The owner was incredibly helpful with restaurant advice, golf cart and boat rentals--and lots of small details that made our first trip to HI a wonderful vacation--it made a tremendous difference to have such an interested and interactive homeowner to correspond with. We rented golf cart for the five minute trip to the beautiful sand beach (house has oodles of towels, chairs, umbrellas)--and easy access to the whole island--walkable to town dock, Arthur's bakery, Piggly Wiggly grocery and fishing docks/shops in town. Loved sitting on front porch and watching pedestrians stroll by in the morning--everyone is so friendly--and sitting on rooftop deck for sunsets and star-gazing! the house feels quite spacious because of all the outdoor living space--front porch, large terrace, rooftop deck, guest house has its own proch as well. We will return, and have aleady recommended to two friends.
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: My husband and I purchased Still Point a number of years ago, knowing that we would not be able to spend a lot of time there until we become "empty nesters"- therefore we open our home to guests who, hopefully, appreciate everything about our home that we fell in love with. We take personal pride in making certain that our guests have a wonderful time, and that Still Point becomes their home away from home! We know most of the locals, and are familiar with all of the establishments- and I am happy to make any recommendation that will ensure a successful vacation.
