amazing

  • 5 of 5

the house was wonderful - clean and well laid out, with everything we needed. catherine and harrison were extremely helpful coordinating things for us before/during the trip - golf carts, cabs, etc. the location is excellent, not directly on the water but a short walk/golf cart trip to a gorgeous beach.

First Best

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to the Bahamas and I looked carefully at the options for lodging. I was very excited to have found The Hideaway available for our 3-night stay on Harbour Island as I'm not fond of resorts — they're often too impersonal; The Hideaway is a personalized home with all the accommodations of a luxury resort!

The small pool, yard, full kitchen, pool table and game room, ample outdoor seating in 4 distinct areas, comfortable beds for 6 people, handsome decor ... all top quality and very special indeed!

Harrison greeted us upon arrival to explain how various things worked (the key code, the pool, all of it), and our golf cart was there and ready when we were for exploring the island. We quickly found and pushed our own personal relax button, and we enjoyed the spirit and beauty of this amazing island immediately.

I highly recommend The Hideaway for it's decor, comfort, location, amenities, and top quality service.

Charming, well-appointed home on an idyllic island

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our first trip to Harbour Island, in large part because of the beautiful Hideaway. Catherine and Thomassa saw to our every need, from renting a golf cart, providing directions and recommendations for the best spots in town, and making sure the home was well appointed. The one time we had a minor issue Catherine responded and addressed it almost immediately. We've rented homes a number of times, and renting the Hideaway is by the far the best experience we've ever had. Three comfortable and nicely decorated bedrooms, beautiful outdoor dining and lounging space, a (small) lovely pool, nice kitchen. Catherine has thought of everything-- beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels, beach toys for children, and nearly every kitchen appliance or tool one can think of. (As an aside, it's definitely worth the $50/day to heat the pool)

We stayed 8 nights and gladly would have stayed a few more. We will certainly return to this home when we next have an opportunity to go Harbour Island. Thank you, Catherine!

A gem in Harbour Island!

  • 5 of 5

I can not express enough how amazing this house was! A jewel tucked away among beautiful gardens and a tranquil dipping pool. The outdoor living space was conducive to a relaxing exclusive boutique resort! The decor perfectly matched the quaintness of the island. From the furniture to the fixtures to the artwork and coffee table books, everything was well thought through when designing this magical retreat! The house and property was clean and pristine! I would stay here again and again!

Second visit did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Having been able to get a great price on a flight to North Eleuthera, we were so happy to see that this property was available for the weekend.

This was just a romantic getaway, not the family trip we did last time. The house was waiting for us in its wonderful condition. The AC's were on when we arrived, and the golf cart we requested was at the house. The last guests even left us a couple of beers for our arrival. (We did the same...left a six-pack of Sands Light for the next visitors.)

The house is very well maintained and this time we found it had more beach boards and snorkeling items for the kids than last time. The location of the house is spectacular. We will continue returning, as Catherine is super attentive to details prior to our trip and Harrison even took us to the dock when it was time to leave.

Thanks for everything. We'll be there next year.

Secluded gem in the heart of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the Hideaway this year and it never disappoints. I've stayed at most of the major hotels on the island and still prefer this place. There's just something about the charm of this house and the convenience of sharing a kitchen, pool and space with your closest family and friends that makes it a far more special experience. It's well maintained, decorated after an Instagram blogger's dream and has so much character. It's definitely become my go to spot!

Map

Car: recommended

Rated as one of the 'Best Bahamas Beaches' by the likes of Fodor's, Frommers and The Travel Channel, Harbour Island Bahamas is famous for its three and a half miles of hard packed picture perfect pink sand beaches. Warm clear ocean waters provide excellent diving, fishing and boating while outlying reefs provide safe swimming and snorkeling. The people are friendly and the island is easy to navigate. Golf carts, the transportation of choice, make touring the island both fun and relaxing.

The sand is truly pink, the water is truly aquamarine, and there are so few people around that it feels like yours alone.
