We decided to take a side trip to Harbour Island on short notice and Jennifer, the hostess/owner, was very accommodating.
Our room, the Tyler Frank, has sunrise and sunset views from the top of the hill. The view from the restaurant down to the beach is magnificent.
When we arrived, we were treated with complimentary Goombay Smashes to welcome us. Jennifer explained a little about Harbour Island and gave the names of different places we might want to go to at night.
We had dinner at the restaurant and all meals were very good. I had the seafood crepes which were delicious.
The beach is a short walk down about 40 stairs. Runaway Hill has lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach, as well as various beach toys, like boogie boards, etc. the beach is beautiful.
Halfway down the stairs from the restaurant to the beach is the hotel pool, also a gorgeous area to have a cocktail.
Great place to stay.

Decided on a last minute overnight on Harbour Island from Spanish Wells. Jennifer the manager was great. She fit us in at the last minute for a beautiful villa (the Tyler Frank Villa #10) Would highly recommend this villa with views of the ocean and harbor. The beach is to die for. Soft pink sand that doesn't get hot and there are lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach (just steps down from the hotel)
The pool is also beautiful with a really nice view of the beach. Ate at the restaurant and food was delicious!! Jennifer was so nice about helping with all our questions as well as went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of. Would return again in a heartbeat!!!

The Runaway Hill and the Infiniti house specially are the best place for a relaxing vacation. The most friendly staff you can find under the super top leadership of Jen!
The food is worldclass and so are the views!
We are fortunate to spend some very peaceful days at this property. If you want to go away from your daily life - this is the place. You don't want to go back home.

We wandered in for a little lunch and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend the blueberry mojitos. We planned to stay on Harbour Island for the day - but once we had lunch and met the hospitable staff - we decided to stay overnight. We were not disappointed. The rooms are beautiful and the view is unbelievable. It was an extra bonus to have hockey playoffs to watch :). Jennifer is a very gracious host. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with us. Manny and Sandra

Runaway Hill Inn offers an exclusive, serene experience with authentic Bahamian charm and effortless elegance that you won't find at any neighboring "luxury" resort on Harbour Island. We stayed at the Inn only 3 blissful nights, but had I known just how incredible the location, staff, food, and accommodations were ahead of time, I would have stayed weeks, months if I could. With less than a dozen guest rooms to tend to, the entire staff was top-notch at all times, especially Jen, the Inn manager, who promptly greeted us upon arrival with her infectious friendliness (and our pre-arranged golf cart keys in hand) and led us to the oceanfront veranda to enjoy complimentary Goombay Smash while she gave us a personalized overview of the island's attractions. We took took full advantage of the Inn's perfect mid-island location thanks to the their recommendation to rent a golf cart which allowed us to explore the island from end to end at our leisure. Though very few, all questions and requests during our stay were resolved immediately - within minutes or less - no matter which staff member you asked. The food was out of this world thanks to chef Krishna, who prepared the best stuffed organic chicken I've ever had (so good in fact, I canceled dinner reservations at mediocre Pink Sands so I could indulge it two nights in a row). Our room (including bathroom sink/shower/toilet) was spotless and spacious w/ ample clothes plus toiletry storage, came w/ a powerful, modern remote controlled A/C unit, beautiful plush, white bedding (think W Hotel - dreamy, soft, cloud-like). After exploring the other hotels and inns on the island during our stay, I can say with utmost certainty that Runaway Hill rivals even the most famous resorts on the island. I can't wait to relive the magic of Runaway Hill Inn at Harbour Island again soon! If you're looking to experience a peaceful vacation with heavenly oceanfront views and exclusive treatment from beginning to end, then Runaway Hill Inn is your paradise. Cheers!

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor of the "Main House" have unobstructed ocean views.
