A truly lovely home away from home
The Touchstone House truly is amazing, and it will forever be with us. This spacious home is charming, cozy, serene, and so beautiful. The wonderful owners have thought of everything! It’s just a short walk on a sandy path to the beach and a quick drive to restaurants and shops. Touchstone has everything you need for cooking, relaxing, and entertaining (hello bar). The decor is exceptionally well done. We love the artwork and well-planned details. Curl up with a cuppa on one of the patios in the morning and have romantic dinners outdoors while listening to the sound of the ocean. The French doors through the house are a treat because you can have the best of both the indoors and out. The home had more space than we needed, and felt so comfortable. Harbour Island will always hold a special place in our hearts, as we got engaged there and called our family and friends on the back porch as the birds chirped and ocean sounded in the background. We found it really peaceful. Complete with a binder that answers questions you may have about the property, phone numbers to local places, and a quick dial to the property manager if you need anything, it made life easy and gave us peace of mind. Everyone around the property and the Island are so sweet and welcoming. Say good morning and good night as you ride along in your golf cart. It really is the friendly island. The memories we've made here will last a lifetime and we can't wait to return to make more!
Simple, elegant......really, just perfect
Our family has traveled around the world and this is one of the favorite places we've stayed. It's perfectly appointed and has the most fabulous location just a few steps from a stunning beach. The grounds around the house are lovely and the back patio is perfect for morning breakfasts and late afternoon drinks. The house is cool and the bed extremely comfortable. It's simple, the decorating is lovely and it's just the kind of authentic Caribbean we love with amazing hosts who were available to respond to any question we had at any time.
Bright comfortable home with lots of extras
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was nicely decorated, bright and pretty, and had lots of outdoor patios. The kitchen was well equipped, and there were hairdryers, an iron, a steamer, paper towels, a bar, a flashlight, and a generator, Nice location, close to town and the beach. Very roomy, even if we had had five people there. Clean.
Thank you Marilyn for letting us be a part of your "especially special" trip ;-) Congratulations to you and your family, Harbour Island is a magical place for a wedding celebration!
The Perfect Stay!
Karina’s house feels like home. It’s beautiful designed filled with clever details; it’s comfortable, sparkling clean and the kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal for a family. The outdoor living is also amazing and the house is a dune away from the beautiful pink sand beach. Our family stayed at the house for 10 days and we didn’t want to leave! I would recommend Touchtone Villa without any hesitation and looking forward to head back to this happy place.
Fabulous rental! Close to the beach! Karina was very responsive to all our questions and assisted us in our transportation needs. The house is well stocked! Comfy beds and sheets,which can be hard to find on VRBO. Would happily book again!
Tropical paradise by the sea.
I felt like I was in paradise. We were here for a yoga and pilates retreat so we utilized both the main house and cottage. The homes are decorated with a bit of an island flair, well maintained and cozy. Our hosts, David and Karina were very gracious and involved. The helped plan our outings, transportation, caterers and even joined in on some of our retreat. The property was a tropical paradise with blooming flowers everywhere. It had several porches so you could get away for some private time. I can't wait to return to Touchstone's house to experience tropical beauty and peace.
Thank you Cyanne for your beautiful words! It was beyond our pleasure to host you. We hope we have the pleasure of hosting all you special ladies again in the near future for another amzing yoga/pilates retreat!
