The rooftop deck is a sublime location to enjoy an evening cocktail or a morning coffee while delighting in views of the ocean, surrounding island and its turquoise Bahamian waters.
Centrally located, these two lovely alternatives, only a 3 minute walk to the famous Pink Sand Beach are steps from Romora Bay Marina and dining.

This property is unique in its flexibility offering weekly and short stays to couples and friends.
if you come once you will probably return or want to buy a house!
Our beach is always named one of the 10 best!
Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel in 1998. 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 is usually there and she lives in the property.
It is a lovely place to spend a holiday.
Susan Neff purchased this villa in 2000
Very beautiful, private and extremely safe for all.
Owner or caretaker is on the property to assist 24/7. Lovely gardens to walk in and view of the ocean from Crow's Nest.
Yep, that's right. It's probably the best deal on the Island. The house is quiet, yet close to a Marina and the best part of the most beautiful, uncrowded beach on the island. It may be the number one beach we've every experienced. The gardens are well kept and the two helpers Edna and Troy were terrific. I can't say enough about them.
Like others have stated, having a kitchen on the island is a godsend if one is trying to save some money. Getting out of any restaurant there for under $100 for two would be a good trick.
We brought coffee with us and got great baked goods at Arthur's for breakfast. Late in the afternoon we went down to the fishermen's docks and scored grouper or snapper for some dinners and procured basics at the grocery store. Captain Bobs was our choice for this. The best deals for wine and beer seem to be at 700, but there are other places as well.(Kalik was just fine for me and a fair price at 700) Of course we ate out, also, but it made it a lot easier on our check book during our stay. All the restaurants on the island, at least the ones we went to, were superb.
Susan Neff was a great communicator and always answered our questions in a timely fashion. I wish we could have met her in person. Susan recommended a golf cart for the week and that was wonderful. Everything is close by.
I guess it's easy to say, if you want a place for the beach, want to experience the extremely friendly people that live on the island, and your budget is not too cramped, this is the place, and Chef Neff's is outstanding. We'll be back.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
