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!

Fantastic home steps from the beach.Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip for my son's wedding on Harbour Island, and Mainbrace was the perfect quaint getaway refuge. The house is on a quiet street just off the beach, but very close to town. Decorated impeccably with an easy open floorpan, we had the perfect trip. Trish was available for questions by phone and text, and housekeeper Tremmie was so helpful and hilarious. Loved Mainbrace, and want to visit again soon! Anne

Quaint and comfortable! Loved it!!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful vacation for our family of 5! (kids 18,16 & 12) The cottage is on a great lot in a great location. The beautiful beach is steps away over a little dune. I loved sitting on the front porch with my Nespresso coffee (nice Trish touch) listening to the waves and enjoying the breeze every morning. What a way to start the day! Trish has done a fabulous job stocking the place, and Tremmie is wonderful!!! Very friendly, helpful, and was in and out quickly... I really wanted to take her home with me! The ONLY reason I’m not giving a 5 Star review, is that I wished there was a generator. The power went out daily on the island... anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. My husband says that’s part of the island allure, so maybe I’m being high maintenance, but I was a little envious of the generators running at neighboring homes. It really wasn’t a big deal, just a minor inconvenience. Otherwise, Mainbrace was perfect! We rented a golf cart from Michael’s Cycles, who had it waiting on us when we got there, and easily navigated the beautiful island. We found the dining on Harbour Island to be delicious! Aquapazza, The Rock House (fine dining),Sip Sip, and Bahamas Coffee Roaster were some of our favorites. We went on a snorkeling excursion through Valentine’s Dive Shop that was a lot of fun. Anita and George sent us home with some great photos at no additional charge...with which I was pleasantly surprised. I feel like we’ve always had to pay extra for the photo package on other island excursions. Lots of relaxed family time and great memories! We loved Harbour Island and Mainbrace in particular! Can’t wait to go visit again! Thanks Trish and Tremmie!

3 weeks of heaven for a family of 5 !

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Family Beach home. We loved every minute of our stay. Steps away to the beach, cozy house and bedrooms. The kitchen is stocked with all the best essantials and the house itself has all the things you may need: towles, beach chairs, coolers.

The indoor/ outdoor living is amazing! Palm trees, hammcok and lounges. The Kids loved playing in the garden, eating fresh coconut and cruising between the house and the pink sands beach. It is really the perfect house for a family or a group of friends who love to have a great holiday.

Organzing our Trip with Trish was a pleasure and we are looking forward to come back.

Mainbrace = Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay at Mainbrace was exactly what our family of five needed -- so cozy and chic and Trish has thought of EVERYTHING. From sending her expert island guide before we arrived, to the magazine-ready chic decor, kitchen drawers filled with everything we needed from breakfast to a dinner party, to beach gear and sunscreens! Tremmie was a delight and kept the house spotless and us relaxed all week with her help around the house each day. We'll make the trip from the west coast again for sure!

Adorable island home

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless and the decor was island chic. Loved the original artwork and Quadrille fabrics. The owners have thought of everything to make a beach vacation comfortable. Boogie boards, outdoor shower, great beach towels, a basket of sunblock, etc.. The house is located in a quiet part of town with a great yard, and we loved hearing the ocean at night.
