We stayed for five nights in their Commodore Suite during December and will definitely not return under any circumstances. The list of griefs is long but above all nobody from the management / hotel owner ever stopped by to ask us if we were enjoying our stay which to say the least is unusual in a boutique type hotel with...

The restaurant is outstanding!! Service and food were both fantastic. This little hotel has so much charm, casual but chic in all the right ways. The view from the restaurant is great and there is a terrific little bar where you can have cocktails around the pool after dinner. This place is one of a kind. Absolutely, do not miss...

We have been to the Rock House three times. This is an absolutely beautiful property on a one-of-a kind tropical island. We stayed in the Seahorse Room. Plenty large enough for two of us and has a mud-room/porch, great for sandy shoes and beach bags. Bedding, linens, and towels were 5-star quality. Housekeeping service twice a day was impeccable.

This is one of the best places on the island to get a drink, eat dinner, get a room, go for a swim, etc. Everyone is extremely nice, and the entire place has a cozy feel to it. Be sure you're dressed appropriately if going to dinner here.

We enjoyed a fantastic week at Rock House. The staff are wonderful and being a boutique hotel it is a very personal experience. Breakfast is a nice touch with homemade banana bread, muffins, & a delicious fruit yogurt mix. Dinner was also fantastic, although we only ate there once as we were eager to try all the island restaurants. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
