We (2 couples) had so much fun staying at the Hideaway. The property is located just outside of the town center-- just a quick golf cart ride to the grocery store, shops + restaurants. It's named quite appropriately as it feels like your own secluded "hideaway"!
Catherine was extremely easy to work with, as was the property caretaker, Harrison, who was quick to get us everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
The home is decorated beautifully and was every bit as nice as some of the hotels we've stayed at on the island.
We paid a pretty price ($50/day) to have the pool heated, which was great for the first 2 days when it was chilly, but probably unnecessary when the weather warmed up. But we had a great time hanging out by the pool, making Goombay Smashes in the blender!
A few tiny critiques: would be nice to have a few koozies for beach going and such (as everything is crazy expensive on the island!); the washer broke while we were there, resulting in some very wet towels!
All in all a perfect island getaway and we would definitely recommend the Hideaway to anyone traveling to Harbour Island!
This property is very lovely, compact in size but well decorated. It had three bedroom 21/2 bath. Rooms weren't large but very suitable for living. It had lots of fabulous outdoor entertaining space. Huge baloney off second floor with both cover and uncover sitting space. Small cover porch off two downstairs bedroom with nice pool table. A small pool with patio area and nice cover Lana to the right of front door. Bedrooms all had cable tv. Internet access and game system was also included. Property doesn't face either bay or ocean but is right around the corner from both. Beach is a ten minute walk up a hill and bay view is just around the corner from the house. We were travel with friends who rented the property next door which faced the bay, so we watch sunsets from their patio. Weather was gorgeous so we had great vacation. Things you need to concern when staying here. Bring lots of money because everything on the Island is expensive, water filtration in not reliable so you'll probably have to drink bottle water. The pool is heavily landscaped so you'll need to heat it if you want to use it. We opted not to heat it but the ocean was fine for us.
Both the owner and her property manager were pleasant to work with and they've kept it in nice shape. Would recommend it to both family and friends.
The Hideaway is a wonderful house!!! We just returned from our visit and can't wait to go back. The house is tastefully decorated the layout is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing in many different private spaces.
The house manager Harrison was great. He checked on us frequently and made arrangements for everything we wanted to do. What an added bonus !!!
We can't wait to go back to the hideaway!
I would highly recommend this house .
Our family had the opportunity to stay at The Hideaway for a week in July. It was not long enough. The house was everything we expected and more. We have a 4 year old and a 12 year old. There was enough entertainment for them both. The pool, pool table, tv, internet, and games kept them constantly busy. We spent much time in the pool and under the outside gazebo. We cooked at the house in the evenings. The amenities in the kitchen were amazing. You will not want for anything when staying here. Harrison and Thomassa took great care of us. Harrison checked in all the time to make sure we were doing well and Thomassa kept the house in tip top shape. We had the pleasure of having Thomassa prepare a meal for us. It was the best on the island!! Make sure you check out the beach which is just a short walk or golf cart ride. Best beach in the world. Thank you for letting us share your home! We will be back!!
Staying at The Hideaway this summer for 6 weeks was a great escape from the busy life in a large metropolitan city. The Hideaway provided us with amenities of a boutique hotel, yet the privacy of a home. The two story home features a chic, modern decor, yet it was inviting and comfortable. The beds were amazing and sheets were fresh and soft. Our housekeepers Thomasa and Lilly were very kind, helpful and kept the home in tidy condition on a daily basis with fresh towels and upkeep. The houseman, Harrison was always available to to tend too our questions and making sure everything was in working order with the home. The technology aspect included fast internet service, an iMac and satellite tv which was great on rainy days. The location of the home is on Colebrooke which is the main and busy street of the island, however the fittings and the windows of the home are top quality so noises from the outside were not heard within the home, also a wall and gate provide privacy and noise reduction. The location was excellent as it was close enough to town to walk to breakfast, yet not too far away from the activity. The beach was a pleasant 5 minute walk.The small pool was a welcome reprieve to cooling off after a long morning walk or run on the pink sand beach. The kind and gracious owners provided us with names and information regarding restaurants, taxis, air transportation and were and easy to deal with within the leasing transaction.
Rated as one of the 'Best Bahamas Beaches' by the likes of Fodor's, Frommers and The Travel Channel, Harbour Island Bahamas is famous for its three and a half miles of hard packed picture perfect pink sand beaches. Warm clear ocean waters provide excellent diving, fishing and boating while outlying reefs provide safe swimming and snorkeling. The people are friendly and the island is easy to navigate. Golf carts, the transportation of choice, make touring the island both fun and relaxing.
The sand is truly pink, the water is truly aquamarine, and there are so few people around that it feels like yours alone.
