About Susan Neff

Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel in 1998. Susan purchased the property in 2000 and spent the last nine years renovating the home and adding to it. When she left Coral Sands Hotel in 2004 she began renting two suites that she had added for guests.

The gardens are especially lovely and are enjoyed by all of the guests, as is the Crow's Nest and the view from it.

Susan is usually there and she lives in the property.

It is a lovely place to spend a holiday.

Susan Neff purchased this studio in 2000

A beautiful, tranquil and well maintained property with a sincere and helpful host.

  • 5 of 5

This property is well situated amidst a beautiful garden very close to the pink sand beach. The space was roomy, tastefully decorated, comfortable and complete. Nothing is far from anything on this island, and there is a resort with a great restaurant and bar a stone's throw away. Susan is a wonderful host and she went out of her way to make me feel welcome and to ensure my stay was exceptional. Thank you Susan. I will be back.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Best value on Harbor Island for sure. This is an expensive island and i doubt you can beat Chef Neff's apt. She is wonderful as everyone has said. Room is very clean neat and tidy. Clean bathroom an kitchen. We did cook a bit and all utensils, pots/ pans needed were there. Beach chairs, beach towels, and beach umbrella all provided as well. The beach is a Short Super easy walk from the apartment, and it is postcard beautiful and very uncrowded. (in Mid March 2018, i counted 6 - 7 people on the 1000 - 1,5000 ft long stretch of beach closest to the apartment. We rented a golf cart for 4 of 6 days, and enjoyed walking to town the last 2 days after driving on every street to see everything first. 2 thumbs up!

Our Host was amazing, very accommodating, attentive to our personal needs.

  • 5 of 5

The property and garden have a lovely setting. Appetizers and cocktails on the rooftop crow's nest with a starlit view.

Privacy in Chef Neff"s Terrace Patio, where you can have breakfast and dinner if you would like.

If you enjoy walking....not far from the center of town, close to beach.
