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.

I had a wonderful stay at The Rock House. I stayed in the Pineapple room which I LOVED, particularly in the morning with the balcony overlooking the Bay where I often had my breakfast. The vibe is very cosy, small and intimate.

The hotel itself is nice and very close to the dock. Food at the restaurant is top notch—best in the Island. Hubby and I were in the Pineapple Room. It was spacious and we loved the balcony. There are many nice touches here, such as cute Welcome Note with complimentary drinks, ic

Thank you for staying with us at the Rock House and taking the time to share your experience. Yes, rooms in our main house can be noisy due to the dining room area until 11pm which we mention on our booking sites. However, we do have other rooms in our garden area which are quieter which I recommend for your future stay. Our pool is open to our hotel guest we just close it during dinner service as guest are dining pool side. We are delighted you enjoyed your overall experience and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Thank you, From all of us at Rock House

Hello - I will be landing at ELH. What is the best way to get to your hotel? In the other answers the response was - taxi ride to the boat dock, then water taxi to government dock then taxi to hotel. What would be the approximate cost of these and is it cash only? thank you!
Hi, Yes take a taxi from the airport for $5 each to the dock to Harbour Island then take a water taxi to Harbour Island for $5 each from there you can walk a couple blocks or take another taxi for $5 each. Thank you

How easy is the walk to and from the beach? Is it uphill or steep? Thanks
it is steep coming back up, if you enter by Coral. If your staying at the Rock enter by Sip Sip and the stairs make it easy. Also, you don't have to pay the $20 for chairs and umbrella.
