#1 of 9 hotels in Harbour Island
Rock House is a luxury 10 room boutique hotel on Harbour Island, Bahamas. Our fine dining restaurant has one of the best sunset views of the bay. Personal service and unmatched attention to every detail.Rock House has been a vibrant and colourful feature of the Harbour Island landscape since the early 1940's. Originally a private home, then a Bed and Breakfast and for many years a rental property, Rock House today has evolved to become the standard for elegance, island sophistication and superior service. Fodor's Choice, Condé Nast, Travel & Leisure and Tripadvisor award winner.In July 2002, Rock House caught the interest of the well-known South Florida builder J. Wallace Tutt III. Tutt and business partner Don Purdy, who had already created the successful Hotel Impala in South Beach and worked on commissions for Cher and the late Gianni Versace, had a vision of transforming the property into a luxury boutique hotel. The bar and dining experience at Rock House warrant special and distinct mention offering fine dining under the stars on the pool patio, at our select Chef's Table or on the Terrace overlooking the bay - you can be assured of the perfect cocktail, a superb wine list and delectable menu choices, all served by an attentive yet unobtrusive staff.

My daughter and I stayed for 5 nights in January, a last-minute vacation. Rock House is perfectly located - short walk or golf cart drive to the beach and wonderful location for visiting shops and restaurants. Daily breakfast by the pool and pre-packed beach bags make it easy to start the day early. The beach area is very well maintained and Susannah and the other other staff are very helpful. The heated pool is nice and we had a great dinner there too. The Rock House's Gumbay smash is the best. All-in-all, a very good value for an expensive island destination. Would definitely stay there again.

We were in HI for my 50th birthday party and our big dinner out was reserved at Rock House. We were a large group but they easily accommodated with a level of service that was unsurpassed. The wait staff even serenaded us. It is such a fun atmosphere with superior cuisine! We totally enjoyed our evening at the Rock House!

The inn was wonderful. The staff were attentive and truly care about their guests. We wanted to stay at The Dunmore but it was booked and we are thankful looking back on it. Nicki was incredible - she booked our dinner reservations and out best meal was at The Rock House for dinner. (Our best lunches were at Runaway Hill and Sip Sip.) The hotel provides beach bags and Susannah was at the beach helping us with drinks and general information about the island and tips. A continental breakfast is provided and you may order extras items for an additional charge at breakfast. I can't say enough good things about the inn and the service we received. I look forward to returning with my husband soon. Have Nicki order a golf cart for you - you will want one.

Room Tip: We were in the Asia room which was wonderful. The Monkey Room and The Palm Room would be noisy so...

The restaurant is top shelf food, service, and ambience! We were there for Valentines Day and the menu was perfect for the occasion plus all the couples received a rose! Goombay Smashes are the best! 🍹

This was a bucket list trip for my wife and decided on Rock House. From the pre arrival arrangements, welcome and ambiance. We were not disappointed. All of the staff were wonderful. There are only ten rooms and we stayed in Palm. Wonderful mornings on the patio and incredible sunsets. It does get noisy outside due to traffic on street before but the birds helped out. We had dinner one night and it was wonderful. Be prepared since everything is 3 times more expensive than in the states. Introduce yourself to Toby and try Some of his personally blended runs. I would highly recommend. Rent a golf cart to cruise around the island y’all With some locals. We enjoyed visiting with Suzie each day on the beach.
