We were very pleased with our stay at Sugar Apple. We’re American budget travelers approaching retirement age who like to meet locals and explore our surroundings, and Sugar Apple was just right for us. We were there off-season, so we were the only ones there most of the time.

The room was small and extremely clean. Since we were there for a week, we moved things around and made it more comfortable. We used the refrigerator to keep our snacks, drinks and ice cream cold (we purchased all of these at a local small convenience store close by), and we used the microwave to heat up leftovers from the restaurants since we were traveling on a budget and some of the servings at the higher-priced restaurants were huge!

Rosie, our friendly host, provided a simple, satisfying continental breakfast every morning. When we became better acquainted with her, she prepared a Bahamian breakfast for us. She was genuinely interested in our experiences eating at the restaurants she recommended to us. We talked about gardening, the Bahamian economy and culture, food, and recipes. It seems like an organic gardener would be fascinated by the challenges local Bahamians face when trying to grow their own crops.

The majority of folks used gas-powered golf carts to get around (there were a few cars). We did not rent one ($45 per day). We walked everywhere and were able to see everything we wanted to see.

At the end of a long day out in the heat, we would find a clean, neat, and tidy room waiting for us with fresh towels.

The locals told us it was hotter than usual during our stay. We used the air conditioning most of the time. The electricity on the island went off 4 times. A couple of the shopkeepers shared their frustration with this ongoing problem. We noticed that many of the resorts and some of the homes had their own backup generators. The Sugar Apple did not have a backup generator. Fortunately, the power never went off at night, so we always slept comfortably.

The beach nearby is stunning. It became our reward for a long day of touring and heat and our connection to true, natural beauty. We would have prefered to stay at a place right on the beach, but those houses are parts of resorts or private estates—way out of our price range. Our 5-minute walk from Sugar Apple to the beach became a bridge from the busyness of our trip to a peaceful downtime. We’ve been to other beaches in the Bahamas, Caribbean, Hawaii, and Fiji, and this was probably the most beautiful we’ve seen (except for Fiji, maybe).

A pleasure to stay here and so close to one of the most amazing beaches we've ever seen, the Pink Sands beach. Great service and friendly family business. The home made banana bread is to die for.

If you are looking for a place to stay that is laid back and relaxing the sugar apple is the place. Stayed here over new years and had a good relaxing stay. If you need reservations for dinner have MISS ROSIE call for you. She knows everyone, and you will get table . Recommend the BLUE BAR for lunch and the ROCK HOUSE and PINK SANDS for dinner. Plan to pay with cash unless you go to a big resort. When you stay with MIss Rosie at the Sugar apple, have her fix you up with a golf cart. She can roll it into your room rate. If you are looking for a place to be pampered this is not the place for you. The Red Apple is like you having your own apartment or condo in The Bahamas, however, if you need anything MISS ROSIE will help you get it. Try the Sugar Apple, you will be glad you did.

We like the Family Islands of the Bahamas and had not visited Harbour Island or Eleuthera. I found Sugar Apple B&B on a map of everything on Harbour Island, Googled it and found their websit www.sugarapplebb.com, called the owner Rosita several times, and made a decision to confirm a reservation. We were there for the off season so Rosita took time to take us around and show us great photography opportunities. She told us where the good reasonable priced resturants were, and where the good grocery stores were. She also set us up with Mr. Herman for a reasonable priced 1/2 day fishing trip. She gave us a great deal on a one bedroom unit with a nice kitchen and sitting area. The unit was tastfully decorated and clean. Rosita and her Mother Mrs. Stephanie were great hosts.
