My friend and I spent 4 nights at Tingum Village and it exceeded our expectations. The rooms are basic, clean, and simple. It was exactly what was needed since little time was spent in the room. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted with a warm Bahamian welcome by Juanita. Throughout the next few days, we got to know Juanita and her team and they always made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Some of my favorite things about Tingum... -Can go behind the bar and grab your own drink (honor bar!) - where else can you do that?? - Rooster wake up calls! - They're all over the island - The restaurant - get the cheeseburger and the conch entree (native style). Don't miss the johnnycakes for Sunday breakfast - Getting to know Juanita and her team. And if you sit at the bar long enough, you'll surely meet some of Juanita's family members dropping by - Centrally located - we rented a golf cart from Tingum but you can easily walk to the beach, stores, restaurants, etc. - Juanita's kind and thoughtful gestures - she taught me how to crack a coconut and on our last day, she personally went to the dock to give us bottles of water and fruit for our early morning trip.. guarantee no other resort goes this far! From your friends in NYC, a big hug and thank you to Juanita, Katrina, Mariah, and chef Mikey for making us feel at home. We plan on coming back with more friends in tow!

Tingum Village exceeded even our highest expectations, and has made our weeklong trip to Harbour Island easy and enjoyable. The property has classic Bahamian charm, every single person we've met there has been incredibly kind, and Juanita is gracious, funny, thoughtful, and accommodating. The rooms are clean and simple, with everything you might need. After a day at the beach or a night out it's a wonderful place to come back to and unwind. Love the honor bar, and the hammocks are an extra plus. I haven't even left yet and I cannot wait to come back (or perhaps I'll never leave?!) Thank you, Juanita and Tingum Village! With love, Hadley and Courtney

I am so grateful to have discovered Tingum Village and to have met such incredible people. Juanita is incredibly kind, and goes above and beyond to make sure you're enjoying your stay with her. Our room had a small kitchenette which we found super helpful as we stayed for an extended time and Harbour Island can become quite expensive when eating out all the time. It's located in a great spot right near the centre of town, plus a quick walk to the beach (approx. 5 min). They have a great bar area and restaurant where you can get reasonably priced and delicious food, including Ma Ruby's famous cheeseburger that inspired Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in paradise. They also host live acoustic music some evenings which is a ton of fun. But by far, the best part about my experience is finding a home away from home. Juanita, Karen, Stacey, Michael (and many more) are all such kind people, and it was so nice to feel so welcomed, especially after having spent so much time in relative isolation at home due to COVID lockdowns. My boyfriend and I came to Harbour Island to reunite (he's American, I'm Canadian) and while I decided to stay alone after he left to return to work, I never felt alone with Juanita and her wonderful family around. This was truly priceless and I can't thank them enough. Harbour Island has come to be known as a very posh island, frequented by some of the world's most elite. But it's rustic charm lives on, and it's the people of Harbour Island that make it truly special. Tingum Village fully embodies this unique Bahamian charm, and offers an affordable way for people to experience this special place. I would highly recommend it (and plan to return very soon!)

"Welcome Home" is how you're greeted when arriving at this quaint, family owned and operated, Bahamian boutique hotel. Tingum Village boasts a wealth of island charm and character. The rooms are clean, and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. From the moment you arrive you feel like part of the family. The onsite restaurant which is known for the infamous "Cheeseburger in Paradise", is wonderful as well. If you are there on a Sunday, Chef Mikey's Bahamian Breakfast is not to be missed! If you've got room for dessert, there may just be a slice of Mikey's Key Lime pie to savor! It is the BEST I've everrrrr had! As far as I am concerned, there is no other place on the island I'd rather stay, than "home" with a great Bahamian family <3

I have been dreaming of returning to Harbour Island for 20 years so my birthday seemed like a perfect time to return. My sister made all arrangements after we decided on Tingum. My sister communicated with the owner Juanita who was kind and helpful. We were greeted by Stacy and were taken to our rooms which were roomy, beautiful and comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance to pink sands beach so the location is ideal. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted as if we were family by Stacy, Karen, Max, the chef and the owner Juanita. Karen owns the spa connected to the hotel (Island spa) and she arranged for amazing body massages for all 4 of us. I’m already looking forward to returning to the island and back home to Tingum Village.
