What we are doing in response to COVID-19:  We want our guests and our housekeeper to stay safe and healthy! We have always taken cleaning seriously, but now we are adding more steps. We are using disinfectant products and our housekeeper is using a mask and gloves, and making sure to sanitize high touch surfaces. We are also doing our best to block at least three days before and after a stay to add more time between people in the home. If parks and trails are closed during your stay, you can still enjoy our privately owned beach and restore in the beauty of Holmes Harbor. As our guest, you will also receive updated information on Island businesses that are open and/or offering safe take-out options.

A Home On The Harbor is a private vacation home that is rented out by owners (not a management company or an agent). Most of the time we will not be available to assist you in person, but there are times when we stay at our family home nearby that shares the driveway and path to the beach. We always welcome meeting new friends, should you wish to say hello, but we will not disturb you. You will be asked to let yourself in using the key coded lock, to follow the house rules, and to follow some simple house closing steps such as loading and starting the dishwasher and starting a wash load of towels.

In keeping with the intentional simplicity of the home, there is no TV in the house. We are, however, pleased to offer WIFI which guests can link to their own electronic devices.

Holmes Harbor is a marvelous place for boating, kayaking, and paddle-boarding, however, there are no watercraft at the house. We encourage guests to bring their favorite water toys with them! Rental options are on the island as well.

The home has a guestbook available with all the home details. We are also available via text, email, and phone for all your questions and concerns.  ~We want your island vacation to be relaxing, and the best it can be.
