About Susan Neff

Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel. Susan purchased the property in 2000 and spent the last nine years renovating the home and adding to it. When she left Coral Sands Hotel in 2004 she began renting two suites that she had added for guests.

The gardens are especially lovely and are enjoyed by all of the guests, as is the Crow's Nest and the view from it.

Susan Neff purchased this villa in 2000

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Chef Neff's suite was perfect for my vacation! Having a kitchen was not only an excellent way to save money, but it made my whole experience that much more relaxed. I didn't have to waste precious time debating where to go for coffee or how to satisfy the urge for a late night snack.

The property is beautiful and well-cared for, very peaceful, and so close to the beach that I walked there and back sometimes a couple times a day.

It was also the perfect balance between feeling cared and provided for, and given lots of privacy. I will definitely return!

Fantastic! Hidden Jewel of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a splendid time at Heron's Nest. The property is truly charming. The yard is beautifully landscaped and our room was super clean. The rooftop deck (crowns nest) is a great place for happy hour/sunset or breakfast. Susan is very friendly and a great cook (she treated us to fresh baked zucchini bread and scones). Susan was kind enough to arrange for our golf cart rental (a must for traveling around the island), it was awaiting us upon arrival. We love Harbour Island and can't wait to go back. A big thank you to Susan for making our vacation be so great.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to HI in the last few years. Our first visit we stayed in a hotel which we thought HI couldn't get any better; but it did get better on this visit. We stayed at Heron's Nest which was perfect for us. Susan is great host, very personable and knows the island very well. She goes beyond to make your visit delightful. Chef's Getaway and Heron's Nest is secluded from town but just minutes away. We feel HI is the simple life but truly paradise and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Susan for all you do.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I've always rented properties through Homeway, and Vrbo, and I've had wonderful hosts and hostesses. Susan was, by far, the best. My trip was perfect from beginning to end because of her thoughtfulness and generosity. I fell in love with Harbour Island, and know that there will be many more trips in the future. Thank you, Susan, for an incredible week. I can't wait to come back!

8 nights at Heron's Nest.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at Heron's Nest. The property was super clean and better than expected. The rooftop deck was the place to be at any time of day. Chef Neff was very helpful for any needs or recommendations. She knows everything about the island. The nicest person I have ever met. For 8 days I had something fun to do everyday or just relax on the empty part of the beautiful beach. Valentines dive center made getting out on the water easy. I will return to Heron's nest many times.

A Tropical Treasure

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 2 weeks at this property, a beautiful hideaway on Harbour Island, one of the loveliest islands in the Bahamas. Nestled in lovely landscaping on the southern end of the island, this property is minutes from the world famous pink sands beach, and even less to the bay side of the island, famous for spectacular sunsets. A large bedroom, efficiency kitchen, a good sized bathroom, and outdoor patio, all very moderately priced make this an ideal spot for a vacation. The piece de resistance is the rooftop deck atop the house where my friend and I had morning coffee, lunch, and a drink at evening as we watched sun go down. The very friendly owner of the property, a former chef, is available at all times for questions regarding directions, restaurant recommendations, special events, and general info on this amazing little jewel in the Bahamas. She also arranged a sightseeing boat trip around the bay for us, and introduced us to several local people This is a very special property at a very reasonable price on an island noted for its celebrity homes and lodging. I'm definitely planning a return visit!
