A Delightful Home From Home On Harbour Island…

Its often said that if you want to evaluate a hotel, one should observe its guests. Nowhere is this saying more true than at Tingum Village Hotel — an independent, characterful guesthouse whose patrons come back again and again to enjoy the sun-kissed beauty of Harbour Island from a prime, beach-accessible location.

Tingum Village’s rustic cottages have high pine ceilings; sea-colored furnishings; quaint netting above the king-size beds; and two-person whirlpool tubs overlooking the yard’s gardens out of floor-to-ceiling corner windows. In front of the hotel is Ma Ruby’s Restaurant, home of Jimmy Buffet’s original “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” where you can sample Bahamian food on a breezy covered patio three times daily. Leave room for Ma Precentie’s home-baked bread, coconut tarts, key lime pie, or pound cake!

Tingum Village is on the town’s south end and a short walk from Harbour Island’s famous pink-sand beach.

    Tingum Village Hotel was an irresistible choice for our stay on Harbor Island — scintillating pink beaches and lush vegetation dominate the landscape, and what better place to enjoy it from than a guesthouse with cosy, peaceful rooms as well as friendly staff and mouthwatering eats at Ma¬† Ruby’s. Fantastic!

    These guys do all the simple things just right. This is a guesthouse rather than a luxury hotel and has an affordable price to match. The hotel staff were delightful, kind… faultless, frankly! Its a great choice for people who like a warm, family vibe and a convenient ‘base camp’ to explore the island.

    Ma Ruby is a truly special host — friendly, gracious and kind. The family atmosphere she fosters makes Tingum Village feel just like home. Once up in our room we found more home comforts including an amazing whirlpool bath tub: a fantastic way to unwind and clean up after a long day wandering the island […]
