Metcalfe House


Welcome to Metcalfe House from Exceptional Villas, our fabulous private home, with two guest cottages, offering light-filled interiors and 60s inspired pop décor that brings colour to every room of this stunning residence. With 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in the main house, 1 bedroom and en-suite bathroom in the guest cottage and a master suite with a private bathroom and power room in the beachfront cottage, Metcalfe House can sleep up to 10 guests and is the perfect vacation home rental in Harbour Island for large families or groups of friends.

Metcalfe House was originally built in the 60s and has undergone an extensive renovation, remaining true to its 60s heritage. The main house is arranged over two levels. The upper floor has a great room with a TV and comfortable seating in vibrant colours that will lift any mood. The dining area is close to the kitchen and is also on this floor. Guests have a choice of dining inside the main house or outside on the vast verandah with seating for 12 around a beautiful beach bleached wooden table. The kitchen is compact yet full fitted with stainless steel appliances and white cupboards that complement the light and airy feel of this luxury home. A central island allows for plenty of countertop space for preparing breakfast, light lunches, or a culinary feast for dinner. If you want a night off from cooking or visiting the nearby restaurants, why not let your dedicated Exceptional Villas Concierge arrange a Private Chef or cook to come to the home, prepare and serve a delicious meal for you and your guests. As you relax on the outdoor verandah overlooking your own private swimming pool. The master bedroom is also located on this upper level and has a queen-sized bed, a private bathroom and access to the verandah, which also has a seating area, where you can linger over your morning coffee as you plan your day ahead.

Located on the lower level of the main house are bedrooms 2 and 3. Each has two twin beds that can be configured into a king-sized bed and both bedrooms have their own private en-suite bathrooms. A family room, laundry room, a powder room and a storage area are also found on the lower level of the main house.

The guest cottage which overlooks the private swimming pool, has 375 square feet of interior space, with two full-sized beds on either side of a partition and a private bathroom, as well as an outdoor shower. This guest cottage is ideal for families to give their kids a space of their own which includes a patio just off the bedroom.

Harbour Island is a small island a few miles off Eleuthera and whilst it is only three miles long and half a mile wide, with fewer than 2000 residents, it is one of the most celebrated, yet secret destinations in the Caribbean. Well known by sailing and fishing enthusiasts, it may well have remained a secret but for India Hicks, who arrived on holiday, fell in love, and decided to stay. Dunmore Town has a selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and open-air bars that spring to life at night to the sounds of reggae music.

On the Atlantic side of the island are the famous pink sand beaches, a light rose blush by day and a vibrant pink at sunset, its no wonder they are often called the most beautiful beaches in the world. Harbour Island is the perfect destination for those seeking a laid-back vibe, to chill, relax and plan their next visit.

Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

We also offer Luxury Yacht Charters. Our yachts are the pinnacle of luxury allowing you to enjoy a 5 star experience on board your own personal floating villa.

A plantation experience on the beach
A plantation experience on the beach

My partner and I took my parents and his out on a family getaway and thought that this sort of "plantation house" had the right vibe for us all. Will never forget the long group chats with champers in our hands by the pool, or the lazy walks on the beach... can't wait to get back!
