My girlfriends and I had the privilege of staying at Touchstone's House twice in one month. Upon arrival, we were met by the property managers who were incredibly gracious and informative about the house and the island. The house itself is beautifully decorated in addition to being very well appointed with all of the amenities one would ever need to feel like they are home. Small usually overlooked details such as perfectly placed power strips really evidence the thought that Karina has put into making this house a wonderful and effortless place to stay. The numerous outdoor spaces also allowed us to live and lounge seamlessly between the indoors and outdoors. The location of the house is ideal with the beach basically in your backyard, the bay- only a few minutes' walk away and the main part of town - a quick golf cart ride away. In addition, Karina was incredibly accommodating, super responsive and so easy to work with while we were planning both our visits. We could not recommend this house any higher.
Harbour Island has and will always be a special place for us and being able to stay at Touchstone has made it even more special - which we didn't think was possible! Touchstone's House is now our home away from home and we cannot wait to return!
Dani, you're a pleasure and a treat as a guest! Thank you so much for the Kind words and for noticing the small details that we have put into our home to make it a special place for our guests to enjoy !
Beautiful Island, beautiful home
Harbour Island is a beautiful island with plenty of things to do. The home is perfect, a block away from the beach, and has everything you can need. From beach towels to beach chairs and floats, it’s a perfect home for a small family or two couples. The property manager is very quick to answer any questions and very helpful with golf cart reservation and any other requests. The home is very comfortable and exactly how the pictures show it to be. There was another couple staying in the cottage behind the main house but we never encountered them . Great place to stay, highly recommend it!
Couldn't be happier.
We LOVED our stay at Touchstone! The listing says it's close to the beach, but I'm not sure how you could be closer! It was such a short walk to the amazing Pink Sand beach and the home itself was SO cute. We had everything we needed and the last night grilled some lobsters out back. We had so much fun staying at this beach bungalow, and we would love to come back soon! Thanks so much Karina!
Peaceful bohemian retreat
This was our second stay at the Touchstone properties - and once again we were not disappointed!
If you like whimsical details and want to see some green as well as beach during your vacation, this is paradise. It has a split layout - one bedroom and bath on one side of the house and another separate one, with living/dining space in between. We spent a lot of time on the outdoor terraces (there are 4 in total!) since it was quite breezy during our stay - the grounds are beautiful, with coconut palms, bougainvillea, and other exotic plants surrounding you everywhere. The kitchen is well equipped - we did a lot of cooking while there. The property managers (and owner Karina) were easily accessible and very accommodating. Other things we really appreciated: the large water jug (tap water is not drinkable), bluetooth speaker, and outdoor shower for rinsing the sand off.
Thank you once again, Karina, Mark and Rachel!
Bahamian bungalow with amazing garden
Thoughtfully decorated Bahamian home on grounds with wonderful garden. This home was not only beaming with character, but also a hop skip and jump from the picturesque pink sand beach on Harbor Island. Convenient to everything Harbor Island offers, it was a treat. Just down the street live music on the dock of the Ramora Club was a fun way to catch sunset.
We spent 4 nights 5 days at the Touchstone property in Harbor Island for my 30th Birthday with 2 other couples, we rented both houses on the property and it was so nice to have the whole tropical bungalow to ourselves- I highly recommend it! Both properties are just steps away to the famous pink sand beach and very close to Romora Bay Marina (great Happy Hour) and other quaint restaurants. While we were there we rented 2 golf carts from Johnsons rentals, fished with Jef Fox on the Ocean Fox, and took the water taxis over to Eleuthera to see Queens Bath, the Blue Hole, and Preachers Cave. I could not have asked for a more picturesque vacation and the Touchstone team took very good care of us to make sure all of our needs were met! I highly recommend staying at this property and renting both cottages.
Saturday to Saturday rentals are highly encouraged especially in peak seasons to comply with island scheduling. Please inquire if you wish to stay at other times during peak season.
