Wow, we have made improvements to an already fabulous place!

New Beach Access with parking - dedicated pergola on the beach and deck with bathroom, beach toy/chair storage area directly overlooking the beach.

New pool heater to argument the solar pool heating for those few cloudy days.

New furniture and decorating in the Lodge Living area. - it really looks fantastic.

Coconut Ranch offers a Villa and the POOL and Pergola and two bedroom buildings separate from Villa. In the villa you will enjoy a serving area for the dining area and the main living room,. The living area features a beautiful stone fireplace at the south end. The villa has French doors along both sides, as well as a cathedral ceiling, allowing for the bay breezes to flow through the comfortable living space. The wrap-around porch on the villa is nicely appointed, allowing for a full range of outdoor living, from reading, to sunbathing, to dining al fresco. The villa also contains a powder room and fully-equipped laundry room. The Villa and Bedrooms were redecorated in 2016 and a chef's kitchen was added along with a screened porch. The pool has had a heater added to augment the solar panels that were installed when it was installed in 2105.

Adjacent to the villa, a separate Cottage houses four spacious bedrooms. Two queen bedrooms and two twin bedrooms each having separate entrances off the front porch, as well as their own bathrooms, maximizes your privacy and comfort during your tropical getaway. The rooms on each end have a lockable connecting door to the adjacent room.

The Master Cottage houses two queen suites, each with their own entrance and bathroom. An outdoor shower pavilion allows for rinsing off after the beach or showering under the stars in complete privacy.

Coconut Ranch is an ideal vacation home for large families or groups of friends. Come and enjoy all the tropical wonders of Harbour Island from our beautiful Bahamian home.

Take a short ride into Dunmore Town for shopping at the Blue Rooster, the Prince Street Gallery or one of the many locals shops. Or walk down the powder-fine pink sand beach to Sip Sip where you can enjoy a pina colada and the lobster quesadilla while enjoying the cool breezes of the ocean. For variety stop in the Dunmore or walk on down to Runaway Hill for lunch.

Wade the flats for bone fish, or fish off the dock. Hire one of the several great bonefish guides or get a deep sea experience less than a mile off the Pink Sand Beach. Snorkel the reefs off of the beach. Arrange for a Harbour tour or rent a boat from Duke and do your own.

No matter how you spend your days in paradise, you will enjoy returning to the peaceful seclusion and luxuries of Coconut Ranch.

About Diane & Mark & Sarah

We have enjoyed sailing the Caribbean from the Virgins to the Grenadines. When we found Harbour Island, we realized it gave us the best of the things we enjoyed about Islands.

Diane & Mark & Sarah purchased this villa in 2009

Why Diane & Mark & Sarah chose Harbour Island

Harbour Island has been a special place for us to visit since 2000. We were first attracted to the Island from magazine articles describing the former capital of the Bahamas and the wonderful Pink Sand Beach for which it is famous(it really is pink!). The history of the island, lack of large developments, the quaint nature of the old harbour front and several world class restaurants and small resorts are some of the things that attracted us. Some of the houses on the water front in Dunmore Town date from 1797. Travel around the island is mostly by golf carts, although there are a few cars. The local population are very friendly and welcome the island visitors. Fly into North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) and take the water taxi on the short ride to the Island.

What makes this villa unique

The lodge is separate from the bedrooms, so early or late to beds don't bother the sleeper.

We have a great swimming pool, completed in the spring of 2015 that is solar heated with a special non-chlorine, non salt system that makes it very nice to swim. A new dock completed in March 2015 will provide the ultimate sunset viewing platform.

This is our seventh visit. Every time it has been wonderful. The photographs do not do justice to the beauty of the property and it's location. It is also immaculately maintained. We hope to keep on coming.

Beautiful location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have just left Coconut Ranch and cannot wait to return! The villa is so bright and airy and we loved the wrap around porch, where we could have a cup of coffee and look out onto the water. The bedrooms are lovely and our kids loved the huge outdoor shower! With this property we had the best of both worlds - we could just go out front to the dock and swim or walk two minutes to the breathtakingly beautiful beach. We loved taking the golf cart into town for meals but the kitchen had everything we needed as well. We were truly able to unwind on this little piece of paradise. Highly recommend!

Words cannot express what a wonderful vacation rental Coconut Ranch is! It's perfect! Our family loved our stay here. The separate bedrooms allowed for privacy and the main house gave a great space for everyone getting together. The porch and the view are amazing. We have rented several houses on Harbour Island and Coconut Ranch is by far and away our favorite. It is immaculately pristine. Every amenity you could want. The harbour is steps away and the beach is just a very short walk away, so it is the best of both worlds. Located down in the Narrows assures privacy, but it is a slightly treacherous ride to town because the road is very bumpy. We definitely can't wait to return. There is not a better property on Harbour Island!

An outstanding property on an outstanding island!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, everything was just as described -- clean, well maintained, and pristine. The listing photos are just as it appears in real life, and the bedrooms are actually a bit bigger than in the photos. We had an excellent stay and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a private and beautiful vacation spot. My favorite part was the porch on the main Lodge, which spans around the entire building. It overlooks the water and dock on the back side -- a great spot for catching sunsets. The island has amazing beaches, and the restaurants were surprisingly excellent. We especially enjoyed the Landing.
