“Phenomenal Stay-Amazing Views”
Reviewed 22 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed in the White House for a week in December of 2016. We have stayed in other properties on Harbour Island, and this one sits at the top of our list. The views are just ridiculous, and the pictures and description are accurate depictions of the property. One view that is not obvious from the pictures is the view from the master bedroom. The room's back wall is almost entirely glass, giving a stunning view of the bay from the bed. The room also has a huge patio with very comfortable cushioned lounge chairs. The home is well equipped with cooking utensils, beach towels, kid's toys, and books, and has a washer/dryer for clothes. There were also basic toiletries provided. We did have a glitch with the pool, but the property manager was on it within hours, and had us fixed up in no time. I highly recommend having the pool heated. It is an extra fee, but unless you are from a very cold climate (Arctic Circle), the pool will feel quite cold. Also, cold fronts are common during the winter months, and on some days the beach may be a bit cool, but the heated pool keeps everyone busy even on a non-beach day.

It is worth noting that the 4th room is in a separate structure that is 30 yards from the house, and not really watchable from the house. We didn't feel comfortable leaving our kids there unattended, but of course, adults would be fine.

The home does not come with beach chairs or umbrellas, but these are available for rent on the beach. TeeJay's is right by Coral Sands, and 2 chairs and an umbrella run $20, which includes lots of kids toys, boogie boards, and floats. Public restrooms are available at Coral Sands beach bar, as are food and drinks. TeeJays also sells drinks, which is hugely convenient.

The house was kept very clean by the maid, despite us tracking in sand on a daily basis. Anita, the off-site manager, and Shabba, the on-site manager, were very pleasant, and extremely responsive. We were dropped off by the ferry at the dock behind the house, and the ferry picked us up at the dock on our way out, which made getting in and out very convenient.

I highly recommend staying at the White House, but it will certainly make staying anywhere else difficult.

“Best accommodation so far on our trips to Harbour Island”
Reviewed 2 December 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at the White House over Memorial Day weekend 2016. We were 4 couples traveling and returning to Harbour Island for a group of anniversaries. We were married on the island and have stayed at both hotels and houses. The white house provided our best accommodations to date. From the booking process to departure, the communication, service, and amenities were outstanding. Anita was very thorough and helpful. Having booked with real estate agents in the past this was a much smoother process.
The house was beautiful, comfortable, and the views were amazing. This was our first time staying bayside and the sunsets were enough to convince us to stay bayside from now on. Especially because the beach is just a short golf cart ride away. The private dock made arriving and departing so convenient and provided a great place for late afternoon swims.
The backyard, and pool were better than most resorts on the island. Each room was comfortable, spacious, and nicely decorated.
Shabba was always around for questions that might arise, and Nisha the housekeeper was very nice.

We will definitely be returning to this house with our family in the future!

“A true piece of paradise”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon and stayed at the White House, Harvour Island.
Wow wee ! What a magical place and a brilliant way to spend our first days of married life together.The property is spacious ,well designed and decorated to a high specification with all the amenities you would ever need. The rooms are spacious,comfortable and clean. Laying in the master bedroom overlooking the Bay Area and watching the palm trees gently swaying in the breeze will remain in the memory for a long time.

It's position overlooking the Bay Area, is cleverly designed within the palm trees and vegetation. A short stroll and you are at the private dock with easy access into the water. Five minutes by jet ski on the crystal clear waters and you can find yourself a deserted beach. The exterior of the house has everything a great pool, plenty of areas to sunbathe,barbecue and the brand new garden furniture was a delight.

My wife and I found our favourite time was just as the sun was setting over the bay. With a glass of bubbles in hand we would roast the day and watch the sun go down with absolutely stunning sunsets. You soon get into the island way of life late nights and even later mornings, the general pace of life seems to slow to a crawl.....wonderful! Shaba is always on hand and generally keeps the place in top condition. He knows the place inside and out and is a mine of information.
The infamous pink sands are just minutes away by foot and to walk the beach from end to end is a must. The seas are an artists dream and have all the light greens and blues you cool ever imagine. The island is full of character with some lovely restaurants, fantastic food and quaint shops.
Would I go Back ? Yes, yes, yes of course without a moments hesitation. This is without doubt a little piece of paradise. Book this property right now you will not be disappointed.
