I have been going to Harbour Island for almost 62 years. There have been many changes to the island over time, but the best development occurred in 2002 with the building and renovation of the Rock House. Through the vision, passion and energy of J. Wallace Tutt III and the incomparable Don Purdy the Rock House was renovated and built... More

Our family of 5 (three adult children) and 3 friends stayed at the Rock House for a week in early March, 2015. It was our first trip to Harbour Island, and it, and the Rock House, did not disappoint. The staff was very helpful prior to our stay, arranging a golf cart and some dinner reservations. Upon arrival, tired after... More

Blowing snow and a blacked-out Logan caused missed connections and a horrible Valentine's eve in Nassau but the hop/skip & jump to Rock House Harbor Island brought requisite rest, repast and romance. Don's welcoming smile and the staff's flawless service complimented the resort's genteel ambience and island tranquility. Can't wait to revisit.

The people who work there seem to be treated with a high level of respect and appreciation by the owner.Happy workers create a very positive atmosphere.

Rock House was amazing and when we go back, we will be staying there again. We loved all the personalized service and going back and... More

Very cute property. Beautifully maintained. Tons of character. It is a 7-minute walk to the beach but it is well worth the exercise as the beach is perfection. Maybe worth investing in a golf buggy for your stay if the walk is too much/you are not able-bodied. The hotel has a separate area on the beach with sun beds and... More

My wife and I visited the Rock House June 2012 (not June 2014 per the review choice) and was overwhelmed by the hospitality, room condition, food, condition of the grounds and so much more. The provided breakfast was fresh and plentiful (yogurt was the best we have ever had). The atmosphere was tranquil and we can not wait to return.... More
