Bedrooms 3
Space 93 m²
Property type cottage

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.

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!

Delightful stay in beautifully designed home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Mainbrace. Trish is super easy to work with and responsive. She has thought of every detail in this beautifully designed home. I kept noticing all the clever ways she decorated the house. It makes for a very inspiring and charming place to spend time. There are even monogrammed "roadie" cups and special beach towels with small zippered compartments for valuables. The towels also came in handy to wrap around us at night when we would drive the golf cart to dinner, and to sit on on the way home as sometimes there would be dew on the golf cart seat. The house has a beach umbrella and several beach chairs which you can bring to the beach. The beach is just across the street and over a dune. The view when you get to the top of the dune is amazing everytime you see it, and the beaches are beautiful. We really enjoyed the location of Mainbrace and easy access to the beach. The island is so small that you don't need to be in town to easily get there by your golf cart. Tremmie the daily housekeeper is darling and helpful. The kids loved the hammock in the yard. Great sound system too. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others!

simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (kids 14, 11 and 8) spent a week at Mainbrace and it was just perfect for us. It is beautifully decorated and has so many well thought out amenities and personal touches throughout the house. The linens, the towels, the outdoor shower, the wireless music system, the sound of the ocean from the hammock...I felt spoiled rotten! Mainbrace is the ideal distance from town (5 mins tops) and the beach. It was wonderful to be able to come back from the beach for lunch or have the kids run back to the house if they needed something. The walks on the beach- especially to sip sip for lunch- will always be a treasured memory. Trish was so responsive and great to deal with- so much so that we booked our next stay at Mainbrace before we left the island!

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!
