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!

More beautiful in person

  • 4 of 5

The property was even more impressive in person. Was absolutely great. My toddler loved it, the outdoor shower, garden, swing. Perfect location, quiet and easy to access. I would not have preferred being in town, this was a little refuge in the evenings and only a 5 min ride to my favorite spot on the beach. Utensils, dishware, pots and pans were all tasteful, nice and clean. I wouldn't hesitate to book again. Overall, great. My expectations are high and you won't be disappointed. No regrets!

An amazing home in an amazing place ...

  • 5 of 5

Where do you begin? This is such a wonderful home on an unbelievably friendly, and beautiful island. To add to the overall delight of this experience, you have a home owner that is responsive, understanding, friendly, absolutely loves this island and never becomes impatient from the constant questions of a first time Harbour Island couple. From the first moment I communicated with Trish, I felt at ease & knew I had chosen the perfect January island destination.

When you drive up to this home in your golf cart, you immediately know you rented the RIGHT home on HI. The lawn is expansive, with stunning swaying palms, lawn chairs, a hammock and hammock chair. The home is UNBELIVABLY decorated with high end linens, and Italian stemware ... everything is beautifully monogrammed & even includes "roadie" plastic cups for a drink on the move ....

My husband and I spent many mornings, hanging out on the lawn chairs in the front yard, chatting ,waving to neighbors & experiencing the ultimate in relaxation. When would finally muscle up the energy (believe me, you could lay under the palms all day) we would meander to the most GLORIOUS pink sands beach, which felt like far shorter than 100+ steps.

You have two restaurants within less than two minutes from your front door, by golf cart, and of course town is less than five. Everything on this island is easily accessible.

Mainbrace is the absolutely PERFECT place to start and end your days ... the perfect spot for an afternoon nap as well.

This island is filled with the loveliest and friendliest of people.

We can NOT wait to return to the island that provided relaxation, wonderful swimming, glorious waters, sunsets and sunrises ...

Mainbrace is Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is amazing!!! I have been vacationing on Harbour Island for 10 years now and have had the opportunity to stay in several different homes on the island. This past week I had the pleasure of staying at Mainbrace and it is by far my absolute favorite!

This recently remodeled 3 bed/2 bath has everything you could ever want or need in a rental. The owners have impeccable taste - from decor, to furnishings, to linens - everything is top notch!

As great as the interiors are, my favorite part of Mainbrace would have to be the outdoor patio/garden. Each morning we would enjoy breakfast on the outdoor patio. There is also a grill which makes for fun outdoor dinners and cocktails. The hammock strung between two coconut palms was the ideal location for afternoon naps. The property has dozens of palm trees, flowers and plants, all beautiful.

Lastly, the location is perfect. Just about 100 steps to the pink sand beach. Being this close provides Mainbrace with a lovely breeze and sounds of the ocean. A nice and easy beach walk to some of the best restaurants on the island and only a 5 minute golf cart ride into town.

I was so impressed by Mainbrace and can not wait to stay again on future trips!

Beautiful oasis. gorgeous interiors. A must stay.

  • 5 of 5

Accurate description! Clean and beautifully maintained. This 1970's fully renovated house brings charm and sophistication all in one. Steps from the beach allows for the ocean breeze to fill the living room. A hammock on the property for lounging, patio dining, beach walks just 5 minutes from Sip sip for lunch The Dunmore, Pink Sands or Ocean View. A true island experience. Owner was a delight!

Loved my time at Mainbrace and I would absolutely recommend this property!

Best kept secret on Harbour Island!

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is the best kept secret on Harbour Island!! An updated yet charming home that offer the perfect balance of great accommodations and the perfect location. A stones throw from one of the most beautiful beaches on the world it offers a calm and quiet yard with a beautiful outdoor shower (hot water included).

The interior of the home is the perfect mix of bohemian chic meets island life. With the island vibe comes a fully updated kitchen and bathrooms. The air conditions are brand new working units; although I highly recommend sleeping with the windows open and listen to the ocean waves crashing in the distance.

The amenities offered at the house include Matouk Linens and towels, Nespresso machine, sound system, Wifi, Weber gas grill, washer / dryer, outdoor seating and dining, wash house, outdoor shower and more. There was nothing more we could have needed.

Proximity to town is perfect. It's less than a miles walk to the best coffee shop and town. Two great restaurants (Romora Bay and Aquapazzo) are located within .5 miles of the property. Don't forget to stop at Alice's straw shop on the corner as you head down to the house. She makes all hand made bags, hats and other local fare. The short walk or cart ride to town is charming and easy. On the island you can find local grocery stores that carry island made bread, local catch fish and more.

The owner was incredibly responsive, very helpful and very easy to communicate with. The description on the location, layout, amenities and property were 100% accurate. The property was very clean and well maintained. The house was immaculate and well stocked with the amenities (toilet paper, paper towels, coffee pods). I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family and we will definitely be renting it again!

Wonderful house on Harbour Island!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mainbrace for 10 days at the end of August and absolutely loved the house. Although the island was getting to the end of the "season" it was still wonderful to be there with fewer people around and a more relaxed atmosphere. Mainbrace is perfectly located, just a short golf cart ride to town and a few steps to the beach. That makes a family vacation so easy - everyone can come and go as they please and it's no big deal to run back to the house if you forget something. The beaches are as beautiful as everyone says and we practically had the beach to ourselves. We loved taking long walks in the afternoon as the glow of the sunset reflected on the pink sand beach. All the reviews about the house are accurate - it's gorgeous and Trish has thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable. Everything there - from high speed wifi, AC, cable TV to suntan lotion, filtered water and beach towels. I had a few questions when we first got there and she answered immediately. The housekeeper comes every day and was really helpful and nice to have around. In short, it's a perfect house in an ideal location on a beautiful island. We highly recommend Mainbrace and we're going to return!
