Photos and Description of this Dunmore Town holiday cottage

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!

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!

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 3 children just returned from an awesome vacation on Harbour Island staying in Mainbrace. The house was perfect and had everything we needed. The beach was a short walk and we had the entire beach to ourselves. We can't wait to come back!

Great House on South end of HI

  • 5 of 5

We have been to HI many times and we were always looking for a nice rental home on the South end of the island given that things are quiet down there and the beach is spectacular. The owner of this hone did a complete remodel in 2015 and it is very well done, not to mention that the beach is literally just across the street. There are plenty of golf carts available for rent on the island and this home is a short ride from town on a cart but staying on the South end of the island is like having your own secluded paradise. The owner of this home was a pleasure to work with and she has other houses available for rent in town as well but we just fell in love with this one and cannot wait to return...

Beautiful house steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Mainbrace for 5 nights. The house is well laid out and beautifully decorated. The main living/dining space is open and comfortable, with large sliding doors that open to the front porch and large front lawn. It is a wonderful place to connect with friends, while also being quiet and private. The bedrooms are a nice size and the bathrooms are modern. The house also has every convenience including WiFi, A/C and a music system. What we enjoyed the most was the quiet location and quick walk to the beach. We could spend time in the sand and surf, and still be a quick golf cart away from great restaurants and the harbor. I would recommend Mainbrace to anyone looking for a wonderful island getaway!

We loved every minute at Mainbrace!

  • 5 of 5

Mainbrace is the perfect home away from home. We loved the layout of the house with the large living/dining area to the kitchen which is spacious and well appointed. We also enjoyed the outdoor shower, hammock and close proximity to the beach - just steps away! The owner provided excellent customer service and we look forward to returning to Mainbrace again soon.

Having never been to Harbour Island, we struggled with what location on the island would be best. We hit the jackpot with Mainbrace. The house is literally less than a two minute walk from the pink sand beach. Mainbrace is beautiful. The floor plan allows for a family to fit comfortably. We had our three teenage boys (ages 16, 15 and 13) and they had room to spread out. Mainbrace has all the necessary items for a home away from home for the week: washing machine, nespresso, checker board, beach chairs, killer sound system and outdoor shower! The owner helped us out with recommendations for snorkeling (Jeff Fox), deep sea fishing (Jeff Fox) and golf cart rental (No Limits) . All were fantastic. We would rent Mainbrace again in a heartbeat-- loved it!
