Perfection in paradise
Everything about renting this home is perfection! The location can't be beat, the home itself is lovely and wonderfully designed, and the owner is great to work with. Trish is extremely helpful and responsive. It was the perfect home (and it does feel like home while you're there) for our family of 5 for a week's stay. There is a great hammock for relaxing and a wonderful yard for the kids to play in when not enjoying the beach and the town. We love Harbour Island and especially love the area where Mainbrace is located. We would definitely stay here again! It would be impossible to be disappointed with this property! Thanks Trish!
Great house on Beautiful Island
The house was as described by Trish and consistent with other reviews. There wasn't anything we lacked during our stay with another couple and Trish's recommendations for golf cart rental, restaurants, tours etc were spot on and very helpful. Note that the video showing the short walk to the beach has a narrow, bush-lined path over the dune that is no more. The path is in the same location but there is a new property on one side and one under construction on the other so the path is much wider than shown on the video. The beach is stunning and was almost completely deserted on our first visit, but a bit more populated on our subsequent ones though not at all like a typical American beach in terms of number of users.
Trish's house is actually less remote than it appears from the photos and the golf cart ride to anywhere you'd want to visit is no more than 5-10 minutes. In short, we had zero drama with the house and would definitely stay at Mainbrace again. Trish is a great host and we couldn't recommend staying at one of her properties more.
This is our third time staying at mainbrace. It really is simply perfect for our family of 5. It’s beautifully designed and has the extras that make it feel special. It doesn’t feel like a rental- it feels like a home. The location is just steps away from the beach which is perfect when carrying the towels and chairs that trish provides. Our favorite things to do are napping in the hammock, taking outside showers listening to the palm trees swaying in the wind and having our morning coffee on the front step watching the roosters run to and fro, Mainbrace is just simply the best!
We stayed one week in Mainbrace on Harbour Island and had a wonderful experience. The home is well kept and decorated perfectly. Anastasia was fabulous with the daily service she provided including doing a load of our laundry when we started to run out of clean clothes. We loved the “Mainbrace” monogrammed beach towels and the use of the Yeti cooler as well as all of the beach toys available. All of the locals know this home by name and are very fond of the owner, Trish. We had a local guy take us spear fishing and then cook us our “catch” one evening and then he joined us for dinner. The people here are incredibly friendly. This home is in a great location. A quick golf cart ride to town but on a quiet, safe, street in an adorable neighborhood. The pink sand beach is a quick little walk across the street. Trish is very responsive and wonderful to rent from. We had some issues with the AC, as a result of a power outage from a big storm, and she communicated with us right away. We checked out her other homes as well; “Chatterbox” and “Jewel Box” while we were on the island and they were equally adorable. I don’t think you could go wrong renting any of the three.
Perfect Vacation Spot
Trish's home is fantastic!! The location is great with a very close walk to a quiet end of the beach. Anastasia was so helpful and nice. She cooked a delicious dinner for us, and even included homemade ice cream! Trish was super helpful to my daughter in planning a surprise anniversary party for us one night. The home is thoughtfully appointed with everything we needed, and more, for a terrific stay. Thank you Trish for a wonderfully memorable stay!!
We just returned from Harbour Island and are already missing it! It was our first time on the island, so we had no idea what to expect. Getting there and checking in was BREEZE! The house is beautiful, clean and perfectly located. The walk to the beach is literally steps away, and most of the time it felt like we were on our own private island. After spending our time exploring the island, the location of Mainbrace is perfection, in my opinion.
We stayed for 4 nights and ate out for all meals and loved every single meal we had. Seriously, the freshest food I’ve ever had! Trish sent us a recommendation sheet before our arrival and it was a life saver! We’re already looking at dates to come back again!
The only problem we had while we were there, was our flight home was canceled :-)
Located "one off the beach", Mainbrace is steps away from the ocean - 107 steps to be exact. It is walking distance from both Romora Bay Yacht Club and Harbour Island Marina as well and a quick, three minute golf cart drive into town for provisions.
