Awesome stay for my honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was great. We rented a golcart for the 8 days we were on the island (highly reccommended). The house was very nice, and we cooked about half of our meals there. The ocean is just a quick walk away, and is absolutely beautiful. The hosts were very accommodating, and the house had everything that we needed (cooler, beach chairs, plenty of towels, etc...). I would reccommend this cottage and destination to anyone looking for a new adventure. The locals are very friendly, and there was never a time when we felt unsafe. One of my best trips!

We spent a terrific week at the Touchstone Cottage. We are a family of 4 with a 23 year old and 20 year old. Our friends with 3 children of similar ages rented the Main House at Touchstone. It was the perfect setting for a 2 family vacation. We had plenty of privacy but spent lots of time at the beach together during the day and in the evenings on the back patio of the Main House. The property is well maintained and the cottage was super clean and extremely comfortable. We have rented houses in various locations but this was the most "homey" and "beachy" house we have ever stayed at. The beach is just a 3 minute walk from the house so heading home to make a quick sandwich was easy and helped save on the spending. Being able to walk down the Beach to Sip Sip and the other resort beach bars made for some fun late afternoons. The restaurants on the island are all excellent. Make reservations if you are there during the busy season. We were also able to buy fish at Romora Bay when the chartered fishing boats came in. This made for a great dinner cooked on the grill that is provided. To say it was the perfect vacation is an understatement. We can't wait to return!

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my husband and I. We would love to come back and stay in the main house on the property, as it is even closer to the beach and has more outdoor spaces. The only negative was the ginormous construction going on in front of the cottage. We were really a little bummed when we got there and saw this but it turned out to not be a problem. We were gone all day while they were working and then the crew was leaving about the time we would come in to start getting ready for dinner. The cottage was well equiped and we had the beach all to ourselves. Mark was very helpful and efficient getting us into the cottage and getting our cart delivered and then helping us get off property. Can't wait to come back and rent both the main house and cottage with our family!

Property was clean, spacious and in great shape.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at touchstone cottage for a wedding but were their for the whole week. Our stay was great! The place was in great condition and stocked with all the needed things for a great beach week:cooler, beach chairs, towels etc. Beach was a quick walk or golf cart ride away. Highly recommend the place and Harbour Island in general for a vacation spot.

Amazing place - would recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage sits on a private and large plot of land, surrounded by beautiful palm trees and other plants. Everything we needed was taken care of - the owners were most helpful at every step of the way, from the moment I enquired through to after we left. We had a golf buggie waiting for us, which is a really fun way to see the island, and - like the owners of this cottage - the island is full of friendly and helpful people. A most gorgeous beach is close enough that you can hear the waves at night. I've never returned to the same place twice for vacation but I would most certainly return to this little slice of paradise, and I'd recommend staying here to anyone!

Peaceful oasis on Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We thought Touchstone Cottage was a great value as far as Harbour Island goes. There is only one house and a short, lovely walk between this adorable cottage and the most beautiful, isolated beach with snorkeling right offshore. All we had to do was put on our masks and swim out to the prettiest coral, fish, and underwater rock formations I've ever seen.

The cottage itself is lovely, and larger than it appears in the photos. It is well laid out, with two beds and baths that are a mirror image of each other and offer good privacy, and a nice open kitchen/dining/living area that allowed us to spend lots of family/friend time together. There is a wall of french doors that runs the entire length of the public space, so you can look out onto the lovely, spacious grounds where coconut palms, frangipani, ginger and other tropical trees grow. We had hummingbirds come up to the flowers just outside - and didn't even have to stand up to get a good look - we could see them right from where we were sitting at the kitchen island.

I personally loved the decor of the cottage - it has lots of white that gives it a clean, modern feel, balanced with bleached wood planks on the ceiling and art/decor that give it coziness and warmth. The entire place - cottage, house, grounds - is brimming with personality!

Mark and Rachel, the property managers, were always available and super friendly.
