Mainbrace. A Three Bedroom, Two Bath Home Just Steps From The Beach!

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,010 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 23 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Mainbrace was built in the 1970's and renovated to the studs during the Summer of 2015.

It's a charming three bedroom, two bath beach cottage on a large property strewn with swaying coconut trees.

Located "one off the beach", Mainbrace sits behind the dune, so while you can't see the ocean from the house, you can hear it and feel the ocean's breezes. It is just a few short steps * to the nearest beach access and beach chairs and an umbrella are available for your use at the house.

You can view the location on the satellite image below. Click "satellite" and zoom in.

* Want to see just how close the walk is? Check out our "links and video" page for a video of the stroll from the gate to the top of the dune of the beach access!

Mainbrace's bedrooms are configured as such: The "master" queen has an en suite bathroom; the second queen and twin bedroom share the second bathroom. The kitchen is large and fully appointed. There are indoor and outdoor dining areas for 6 - 10 people. AC throughout as well as a whole home in-wall stereo system, cable, wi-fi, free long distance and security.

There is an outdoor shower, a gas grill...pretty much anything you need to make Mainbrace your home away from home.

If you have any questions or require additional info, don't hesitate to ask.

Looking forward to having you!

Mainbrace = Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay at Mainbrace was exactly what our family of five needed -- so cozy and chic and Trish has thought of EVERYTHING. From sending her expert island guide before we arrived, to the magazine-ready chic decor, kitchen drawers filled with everything we needed from breakfast to a dinner party, to beach gear and sunscreens! Tremmie was a delight and kept the house spotless and us relaxed all week with her help around the house each day. We'll make the trip from the west coast again for sure!

Adorable island home

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless and the decor was island chic. Loved the original artwork and Quadrille fabrics. The owners have thought of everything to make a beach vacation comfortable. Boogie boards, outdoor shower, great beach towels, a basket of sunblock, etc.. The house is located in a quiet part of town with a great yard, and we loved hearing the ocean at night.

Perfection- Inside and Out!

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is an INCREDIBLE property.!!!.So chic and beautifully decorated by it's owner Trish Becker, the ultimate Briland hostess! Trish's love of the Island, it's history, art and architecture are all reflected in this unique property..Her attention to detail is unparalleled!

Mainbrace's kitchen is stocked with all of the best essentials and beautiful linens. The bedrooms are bright and cozy. The living room is a great place to entertain (with the best sound system!) She has stocked the house with all of the things her guests may need: from monogramed towels, barware, beach chairs and coolers.

The indoor/ outdoor living is spectacular. There is space to relax outside in the hammock and lounges under the palm trees. The outdoor terrace is a lovely spot for a special dinner. It is the perfect house for a group of friends or family who love to entertain!

The house is on the quiet end of the island which is ideal for relaxation and world-class beachcombing. Just steps from the beautiful Pink Beach, the house is perfectly located for beach lovers while being a stone's throw from the excitement of town.

Mainbrace has a special vibe. It is sophisticated and chic and a brings out the spirit of this wonderful island. I loved staying there and look forward to returning next year!

**** Be sure to say hello to Tremmie. She is a delight and happily takes care of all of the guests like family.

A True Gem of a Beach House Perfect for Families with Kids

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace was the perfect beach home for my family of 4 Adults plus 2 kids (3.5yrs and 11 months crawler). Trisha was AMAZING to work with from beginning to end in so many ways. Trisha's warm and positive energy radiated in our correspondence (along with her excellent communication). Her home at Mainbrace also echoed that same radiant energy. I love that it's a one floor breezy beach home with a large yard and so many amenities that worked for our family (even loved the quality blow dryer - for hair specific folks like me). We used the nice quality hammock for afternoon naps. My husband's one requirement for our house rental was it had to be beach accessible and accessible to morning coffee. Mainbrace fits the bill with it's location only being a few steps up a path to a very beautiful and secluded beach (prettier than the ones on the resorts). Instead of having to go out to get coffee, he got to use the Nespresso machine (his preferred coffee choice) stocked with pods each morning. The yard was perfect to let the kids safely run and play. Speaking of kids, Trish referred us to Eedie who we were able to rent a nice wooden crib and highchair from (she delivered it and picked it up too!). I love that Mainbrace is located on the quieter side of town yet we quickly can get into the main part of town with our golf cart. We felt so safe, we kept the front doors open at night (which we've NEVER done anywhere since we're New Yorkers) to let the wonderful breeze flow through. But we felt so safe and saw how genuine the locals are. We loved the breeze coming in from the ocean and the tall palm trees in the yard. We even got some coconuts from the trees & drank from it. I love the outside patio and shower along with washing machine (very helpful with young kids). Tremmie our house keeper was a delight. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Trish even checked in with us during our stay to make sure all was going well. Harbor Island is a true gem, & Mainbrace is a gem within a gem. We discovered that Trisha is a very talented jewelry designer (Trish Becker Jewelry) when we saw her stylish accessories at the Blue Rooster (the cutest boutique on the online). Everyone seemed to know Trisha on the Island. This is our 2nd time back to Harbor Island. This was our first time renting a home on the island and now we will always rent over staying at a hotel. Mainbrace has played a part in adding to our amazing experience and memories from this trip.

We wanted to stay at Mainbrace forever!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I absolutely loved dealing with Trish from planning our holiday right through to the very last day of our stay. She was so accommodating and provided fast, easy resolutions to any of our questions. The house is exactly as it appears in the photos -- stylish, comfortable, great location on the island. Tremmie was a delight too. So helpful and just lovely to be around. I would highly recommend any of Trish's properties based on how she guided our experience. Oh, and she has a FABULOUS reputation around the island. All the restaurant and shop owners love her and will tell you how nice and genuine she is. What more do you need to book!? Thanks again for everything Trish and hope to see Mainbrace again soon!
