The Quintessential Tropical Getaway
It’s an iconic dream: the house on the beach, right next to the shore, where you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to a beautiful view of the ocean. Whether it’s for the beauty of the sea and the coast, the convenience of being next to the beach, or just the luxury associated with the idea, the tropical beach house is the archetype of seclusion and relaxation; isolation that you’ll never get with a hotel room.
Our houses near the beach meet all expectations and will make your stay in Harbour Island unforgettable. The breath-taking pink and white sands of the island’s eastern shores have attracted visitors for generations, and even today, their beauty is preserved. Plus, these Beach rentals in the Bahamas are close enough to walk each day to the gorgeous beaches of Harbour Island. From swimming to sunbathing to snorkeling, these beaches offer it all. The gorgeous weather for relaxing and the many reefs to explore mean that you can spend hours here, day after day, without tiring. It makes making a long term stay even more enjoyable! Simply book one of our Bahamas rentals that are long term and settle into island life.
Things to Do on Harbour Island
Go to the beach, of course! It’s why you came, after all, and the gorgeous 3+ mile stretch of pink and white sands on the eastern side of Harbour Island is consistently rated one of the best beaches on Earth. There are plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas, of course, which can be rented by the day. If you’re looking for more excitement than just sunning, try snorkeling, scuba diving, or even a horseback ride along the pristine sands.
If you somehow get tired of the beach, and are looking for something else to do, try chartering a boat! Sailboats and fishing charters are available on Harbour Island, skippered by friendly locals who love to show you around their own piece of paradise. Explore the gorgeous blue waters, beachcomb on uninhabited islands, and see what you can catch! At the end of your fun day, cook up your own catch for dinner in your very own beachside kitchen.
When you’re ready for more land-based fun, cruise over to Dunmore Town in your golf cart and explore the quaint former capital of the Bahamas. With a population of less than 2000, and virtually no cars, Dunmore Town is a bit like going back in time. Enjoy a great breakfast at Bahamas Coffee Roasters, which opens earlier than most places on the island, then spend the day browsing the shops in pursuit of the perfect locally-made souvenirs. The adorable, brightly painted New England-style architecture will charm you, and an evening of sunset drinks overlooking the harbor will seal the deal: You’re in love with the Bahamas!
Next stop: seafood! The Bahamas is obviously famous for it, and now’s your chance to try all the great local specialties. Harbour Island is a bit of an upscale destination, since it’s so exclusive, and that means the food is top-notch all the way, from lobster quesadillas at Sip Sip to conch salad at Queen Conch. You can even try the original “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at Ma Ruby’s, the inspiration for the Jimmy Buffett song. Don’t forget to finish off each perfect Harbour Island day with a relaxing cocktail on your own veranda!
Amenities All the Way in Our Bahamas Beach Rentals
There’s no shortage of luxury, either. You’ll be close enough to the beach to smell the sea, but you’ll enjoy all the amenities of city living. The furniture is plush and comfortable, and all appliances are checked regularly to ensure working order. On top of that, each rental is regularly cleaned and sanitized. Fully equipped kitchens are the norm, meaning you can enjoy your meals your way—from fried eggs in the morning to hearty casseroles or fresh seafood for dinner, you can eat like you do at home or be adventurous with the local cuisine. Relax with the TV on, or enjoy the homes’ great natural lighting while reading. Check our Bahamas beach rentals‘ descriptions to find other bonuses, from pools to grills.
