About Susan Neff

Chef Susan Neff, owner and manager of the two suites, came to Harbour Island as the Executive Chef of the Coral Sands Hotel in 1998. Susan purchased the property in 2000 and spent the last nine years renovating the home and adding to it. When she left Coral Sands Hotel in 2004 she began renting two suites that she had added for guests.

The gardens are especially lovely and are enjoyed by all of the guests, as is the Crow's Nest and the view from it.

Susan is usually there and she lives in the property.

It is a lovely place to spend a holiday.

Susan Neff purchased this studio in 2000

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Best value on Harbor Island for sure. This is an expensive island and i doubt you can beat Chef Neff's apt. She is wonderful as everyone has said. Room is very clean neat and tidy. Clean bathroom an kitchen. We did cook a bit and all utensils, pots/ pans needed were there. Beach chairs, beach towels, and beach umbrella all provided as well. The beach is a Short Super easy walk from the apartment, and it is postcard beautiful and very uncrowded. (in Mid March 2018, i counted 6 - 7 people on the 1000 - 1,5000 ft long stretch of beach closest to the apartment. We rented a golf cart for 4 of 6 days, and enjoyed walking to town the last 2 days after driving on every street to see everything first. 2 thumbs up!

Our Host was amazing, very accommodating, attentive to our personal needs.

  • 5 of 5

The property and garden have a lovely setting. Appetizers and cocktails on the rooftop crow's nest with a starlit view.

Privacy in Chef Neff"s Terrace Patio, where you can have breakfast and dinner if you would like.

If you enjoy walking....not far from the center of town, close to beach.

Perfect Island Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Briland is a beautiful part of the world and Chef Neff provides everything you need to enjoy it. My wife and I stayed in the Getaway for an entire week, smiling throughout. Susan was wonderful to deal with during the booking process and we were welcomed onto the island with no issue. From there, the property allowed us to relax, explore, and appreciate the wonder of this glorious place each hour of every day. The crow's nest is a wonderful attribute as are the beautiful flowers and trees.

If you want to experience the true essence of island life, this property is the perfect place to start.

We will be back.
