Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Mainbrace was built in the 1970's and renovated to the studs during the Summer of 2015.

It's a charming three bedroom, two bath beach cottage on a large property strewn with swaying coconut trees.

Located "one off the beach", Mainbrace sits behind the dune, so while you can't see the ocean from the house, you can hear it and feel the ocean's breezes. It is just a few short steps * to the nearest beach access and beach chairs and an umbrella are available for your use at the house.

You can view the location on the satellite image below. Click "satellite" and zoom in.

* Want to see just how close the walk is? Check out our "links and video" page for a video of the stroll from the gate to the top of the dune of the beach access!

Mainbrace's bedrooms are configured as such: The "master" queen has an en suite bathroom; the second queen and twin bedroom share the second bathroom. The kitchen is large and fully appointed. There are indoor and outdoor dining areas for 6 - 10 people. AC throughout as well as a whole home in-wall stereo system, cable, wi-fi, free long distance and security.

There is an outdoor shower, a gas grill...pretty much anything you need to make Mainbrace your home away from home.

If you have any questions or require additional info, don't hesitate to ask.

Looking forward to having you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Mainbrace in February was an absolute delight from the welcoming and accommodating front stone porch to the inviting open concept living/dining area, decorated most tastefully, I might add.

The bedrooms were also tastefully decorated and the beds super comfortable. The two ensuite bathrooms off the two master bedrooms were modern and super clean.

The kitchen was modern and fully equipped where we able to enjoy cooking local fresh fish and lobster.

The outdoor shower was a welcome added touch to freshen up from our time spent on the beach, a short walk across the street. The beach was all but private, beautiful pink sands and sunsets to die for.

Amazing stay at beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is the perfect place to stay for your Harbour Island getaway. Trish was very responsive and helpful with recommendations for the island. The house is beautiful with excellent design touches and amazing AC for those hot days. Could not be more pleased with my stay here, and hope to go back soon!

A little slice of Heaven on Harbour

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is a darling 3 br/2 bath cottage on Harbour Island. As a former interior designer I can tell you, this place is photo shoot ready. Very well put together. Ohhh and the sound system ROCKS!

We loved the location of the house, we have typically stayed in The Narrows section of the island and found this to be a nice change.

Tremmie the housekeeper is delightful, we enjoyed meeting her.

Nothing but praise for this property, and the ease of working with the owners.

We were made aware of some pending new construction across the street...I suppose unavoidable as this island remains a real hip hot spot...

We will return!

PS the pink and white house on the corner a few blocks away, with the key lime pie sign...ORDER ONE! Fantastic...

A Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the location perfect (super close to the beach and you can hear the ocean from the house), but the decor and amenities are fantastic. Everything we needed was there. Daily housekeeping was fantastic and Tremmie could not have been nicer. Trish responded to every random question I had and made sure we were all set for our trip to Harbour Island. We will absolutely stay here again.

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four found this house perfect for a five-day vacation on Harbour Island. We have been to Harbour Island before but this was our first stay in a house and we would love to stay in Mainbrace again. It was well appointed, comfortable and overall a charming beach cottage. The house is located one off the beach with close easy walking access to the beach. We could hear the surf from the house and easily carry the beach chairs with us for a day in the sun. This location was quiet and the yard was a lovely place to relax and get out of the sun after spending time on the beach. We enjoyed having coffee on the porch in the mornings and the kitchen made it easy to enjoy meals at home. We would definitely recommend this house!

Located "one off the beach", Mainbrace is steps away from the ocean - 107 steps to be exact. It is walking distance from both Romora Bay Yacht Club and Harbour Island Marina as well and a quick, three minute golf cart drive into town for provisions.
