The Hatch was everything we hoped it would be - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent experience at The Hatch was everything we could have hoped for. Perfectly located, the old captain's house has been preserved in near original condition with additions for outdoor living/entertainment that makes this place perfect! The Hatch's owners, Vic & JoAnn live on Harbour Island and were available to answer any question we had at a moments notice to include where to find fresh fish from the local docks! The pool added a lovely place to spend time away from the beach on windy afternoons and early morning swims. The kitchen is fabulous with everything you'll need. We highly recommend The Hatch if you are looking for a beautiful Carribean house with the nicest owners you could hope for!

Fantastic vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about The Hatch. We were in town for a wedding and the house was perfect for our group! The Hatch has everything you'd need and more. Vic and Jo are great hosts! Jo met us at the house upon arrival and showed us around (she even offered to pick us up from the dock!) and Vic was quick to respond to any questions before and during our stay. They provided golf cart rental recommendations, dining recommendations, and more. We would definitely return for another stay at The Hatch. Thanks for everything Jo and Vic!

Amazing home central to everything and the nicest owners on the island :)

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay. Vic and Joanne were such gracious hosts making sure we had everything we needed. They even came by and took everyone on a boat ride. You honestly don't need a thing - just bring your swimsuit and you are good. Fabulous views, so much space, comfortable beds and bedding, amazing pool... the air cranks - just perfect! We can't wait to come back.
