Certificate of Excellence
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.

We went there with very high expectations. The atmosphere and the decor did not disapooint us. However, the food was not that pleasant at all and , in fact, hard to digest and far away from being good. With the prices they charge, I cannot give them more than a 3 (All because of

Beautiful dining area but no airflow. Food good. Good staff but I don’t know how they can work when it is so warm. Great breeze outside but zero inside. Had seared tuna that was yummy. Many craft cosmo cocktails that intrigue.

Hello Ariel , Thank you for considering The Rock House on beautiful Harbour Island. We are located on the bay side , but we do have a area with chairs, umbrellas and tables dedicated to Rock House guest. Our beach set up is located at the bottom of Sip Sip. Hopefully this answers your question. Kind Regards, Jasmine Griffin

Hello Ian, I prefer the weather in the spring and summer months as it is warmer but it's nice year round. As we are on the bay side of the island we face sunset so we have great sun during the day into the evening. The Commodore Suite is $665 off season and $950 peak season plus a 25.5% taxes/ fees per night. Thank you

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.
