Welcome to Parrot’s Perch - a delightful 4 bedroom house and adjacent 2 bedroom cottage (separate listing VRBO #206800) located on the famous pink sand beach of Harbor Island in the Bahamas.

I reside in Florida now. Bought the prperty when I lived in NYCity. The Island is very special with the wonderful people,who are friendly & willing to help. I grew up in Sydney Australia & am familiar w,ith wonderful beaches. My family beach was Bondi ,soft sand, sharks & crowds. On Harbour Island I found a beach that is tranquil ,no sharks, quiet & magnificent. The pink sand is soft ,never hot to walk on & so pictureque. A joy to look at ,play on & in ,great to walk on .Good exercise for the walker, me ,or the runners ,some of my family & friends . Some people play shuttle ball , & other games on the beach. This is an Island that I can relax on,read some wonderful books & have a divine meal. The island is expensive ,as everything is imported & there are large taxes placed on all goods & services. The pleasures of being on the beautiful Island.
I have stayed many times in Nantucket in the USA . A beautiful low key Historic island. So is HI ,the 1st capitol of the Bahamas. So ,we have some old quaint homes that add to the charm, plus the new incredible houses . My abode is in the middle . A delightful family ,beach home that provedes a wonderful beach holiday for my kids & grandkids. We use both the house & the cottage to accomodate us all. The 2 bedroom cottage can be rented separately & provdes another full kitchen & 2 bathrooms. enough for a group of 12 people ,big or little.
So, i still enjoy the sunrise from the bed in the master bedroom . The colors into the bedroom are magnificent that are reflected in the sky & across the beach ,as warm orange pink glow.
So do join me in enjoying my property. RELAX,that is what a holiday to me is all about.
The Owner purchased this house in 1999
My family and I stayed at the house for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The layout of the home afforded a lot of privacy with good separation between the bedrooms. The friendly local housekeeper went out of her way to be helpful and meet our every need. This homes feels like a beach house should, and allowed us to relax completely and in comfort throughout our stay. It was a wonderful experience to step down to the pink sand beaches and enjoy the sea and sun, or sit on the terrace sipping a martini and watch our children play in the sea. When we needed some entertainment, we found it very close by. we really enjoyed our time at this lovely home.
The beach is the main attraction ,beautiful fine pink sand.R
We are right on the beachwith wonderful views from all the rooms in the house. The huge master bedroom has a view from the king size bed of the sunrise ,just magnificent. You can even have your morning coffee from the covered verandah that has a comfortable couch & coffee table. Evening drinks can be had out on the patio facing the beach. This can be viewed in the photos. One can walk along beach to some fabulous restaurants in the daytime, a golf cart gets you around in the nite. My cartaker can organize a 2 ,4 or 6 seater golf cart for rent. The beach is quiet , you can play sports on beach as it is broad & without rocks.. Wonderful for sand structures,castles etc sand toys provided. Walk down the beach to Pink sands resort to arrange horse riding. Harbour Island is a place for swiming, sunning ,beaching & relaxing. Many people exercise on the beach ,yoga, running & walking . The beach is 5 miles long, great walks. People also run on the roads for exercise. Retaurants are wonderful for all meals. Suggestions listed in info in my houses. Unusual clothing items avaiable at some unique boutiques. My caretaker will babysit & do some cooking an arrangement between you & her. There are 2 places to arrange for deep sea fishing,scuba diving & snorling, Deep sea sport fishing is very popular as is bone fishiing. It is best to have a guide for bone fishing ,at least the 1st time.
Bring some books to read. I do have a select supply & you can always contribute to the library.
The house & cottage have a large generator,as power in unrelaible on the Island. In the Summer AC is vital,the generator ensures you have POWER.
This is a family house ,the flow works well. Several people can cook in the kitchen . They can still be part of the group ,as it is an open plan.
My place & the Island is low key. Beautiful, casual & relaxing. have a great holiday.
