Very low key and relaxing environment. Room #9 was very accommodating and close to the main house "the Inn". The breakfast and dinner was a 4.5 on a scale of 5. The food was delicious and it's presentation was what I would expect. The service to our table should have been on par with our meal, however there may have... More

This was our fourth visit to Runaway Hill. What a fantastic spot. The beach, the color of the water, the cool breeze, the inviting pool all contribute to a true getaway. Most importantly, though,Jen and the staff treat boat captains and billionaires alike- with warmth, friendship and great service. The rooms are quiet, clean,and the beds and pillows are very...

Discovered thorough Trip Advisor, the Runaway Hill Inn is a gracious retreat with comfortable rooms, excellent dining, warm service and a beautiful location and pink sand beach. The rising sun warmed our mornings through the front porch windows and set glowing orange through the rear deck windows. Our large room, with two sitting porches, large bath and sitting areas was...

This is like visiting the Family's beach home. Very quite and laid back. Jenifer is one of the sisters. She runs a tight ship. She has great stories and is ever do helpful with reservations. We try to visit several times a year. The restaurant is simply the best on the Island

We had two variations of stone crab, both were amazing. One was prepared with a butter caper and spinach, the other was a crab salad with avocado. The view and the hospitality was fantastic. Jenny took wonderful care of us and we can't wait to go back again.

We've visited many of the Bahamas out islands but this was our first trip to Harbour Island and definitely not our last. When planning our trip it was hard to decide where to stay but Runaway Hill was a great choice and we would highly recommend. Great oceanfront location with beautiful views, great restaurant/bar, walking distance to town and awesome... More

My husband and I (and another couple) stayed the last week of Jan 2015 and we had a fabulous time at Runaway Hill. Harbor Island was amazing, beach amazing, and food AMAZING! The Manager/Owner, Jen was really nice and helpful. Her family was staying there the same time we were there and they were all so kind and friendly. Runaway... More

This is one of the best vacations I've ever had. The staff are the best and make you feel at home. Do yourself a favor and get to know them very fun people. The messier's are some of the greatest people on this planet. If you have a chance, sit down and chat with them. They won't bite (unless you... More

Our family spent the Christmas and New Year holiday at Runaway Hill - It could not have been a more relaxing and enjoyable experience. Guests mingle with each other and you feel the "Club" atmosphere. Jen Messier runs a wonderful hotel and her staff is friendly and attentive. Whether it's volleyball on the beach or a romantic dinner overlooking the... More
