Overview

Harbour Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 8

It's said that there are four seasons in the Bahamas. Early Summer, Summer, Late Summer, and Next Summer. This two-storey summer home is on the southern end of the island away from the 'hustle and bustle' of town. We're a short walk to the world famous 'Pink Sand Beach'. So if you can walk for 120 seconds, this is the place for you to vacation.

'At Ease' is open and spacious, kid friendly, and with beautifully appointed furnishings. It has a den/study that can be converted to a fifth bedroom, and can comfortably accommodate large families. It's colonial architectural style blends well with the island.

The foyer's ceiling is open to the second floor which leads to a large great room, and a fully equipped kitchen which is the 'center' of the house. It has an island stove with chairs, breakfast nook, and a formal dinning room. That said, At Ease is great for entertaining.

Maid service daily except Sunday's and Holidays.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

Perfect family accommodations

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a spacious family friendly house....look no further. All the rooms are spacious and inviting. There was wi-if to do a bit of work or just surf the net. The beach is just up the street....and it was wonderful! Jason thought of everything...beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers....it was a wonderful experience. Since the meals we a bit pricey, it was wonderful to have a kitchen. Thank you Jason to you and your family for allowing my family to enjoy your home!

Huge House, Steps to the Ocean, Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when arriving to At Ease. It's a very spacious house. We were 4 adults and a 2 year old child. The crib provided was very useful :) Jason was extremely helpful and easy to communicate with. The house is large enough for 8-10 guests, so we were very comfortable. The bedrooms are extremely spacious. There's even a large dining room and a den/office with free WIFI in case you need to work (like we did!) Wifi was fast and efficient. And the beach is literally across the street, maybe 300 steps. We rented a golf cart and boat from Michael's Cycles, also a very pleasant experience. We had to change our dates due to some bad weather, but Jason was extremely accommodating. We hope to make this trip an annual get away, and would book Jason's home again. Thank you for everything, Jason! All Our Best, Michelle & Patrick - Ft Lauderdale FL

Can't go wrong with this house

  • 5 of 5

120 Seconds from the beach is a very accurate description of this home. Half of that on a golf cart. The best part of this location is the fact that it is on the south end of the beach. I think there are less people on this end. The house itself is really big. My family of five only used part of it. It is honostly nothing overly fancy but that was fine with us. Know going into it you will need to purchase all of the normal VRBO stuff although there were spices and coffee filters there. Also know you will need to purchase all of your drinking water. This is not exclusive to this house as all of the drinking water in HI is not fit to drink in my opinion. Jason, the owner, lives in Nassau but was so easy to reach he might as well have been next door. Any questions are problems I had were immediately addressed. All in all, this home is a great value for the size of it and the location in relation to the beach. I am sure I will be back again. Also, the local real estate agent that handled the transaction, Marcella with Dunmore Realty, came by and checked on us. She is great as well. Thank you Jason.

Great Place on a great island

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of four couples stay at this house and it was perfect. Huge kitchen and yard and every bedroom was giant! It was clean and the housekeeper was very nice. We all enjoyed it and highly recommend for a couples retreat or family gathering with all the open space and being so close to the beach!!

Great House for a Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great house for a beach vacation. The house is very well situated on the island with a one minute walk to the beach right out your front door. Could be 30 seconds if you drive your golf cart. The house is very clean and well supplied. Beach chairs, towels and umbrellas are there. The decor is simple but all the necessities and amenities are there. Lots of seating and dining areas. Bedrooms were very large. Perfect house for a family or group of friends. It was just two of us so the house was more than big enough. It was nice to sit out on the front porch in the morning and watch the sun come up and the island come to life. Jason is a very repsonsive owner and was readily available to answer some of our silly issues. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Home on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

The owners for this home were very helpful and the house was great! It is on the south side of the island but everything on the island is close and accessible. The beach is literally a 120 second walk. The beach was pristine and secluded, we all loved it! The home was comfortable and updated. Very spacious rooms and even comes equipped with a crib if you are traveling with babies. We all loved it! Definitely recommend staying there and would love to go back to Briland!

Harbour Island is one of the 700 Bahama Island. Commonly referred to as an Out Island or Family Island it is quaint and exudes colonial charm in its culture and architecture. The famous three-mile pink sand beach stretches nearly the length of the island. Enjoy native dishes or international cuisines with a local twist at any number of restaurants. Between that the night life, fishing, beaching, shopping or just doing absolutely nothing there is something for everyone.
