If you have any dietary needs, Donald and Irene are more than happy to accommodate any necessary changes.
Experience a Unique World
Being a small and secluded island means you'll hear the music of crashing waves at every turn. It makes for a beautiful backdrop as you take in the rest of the unique sights all around you.
Sparkling oceans and craggy green mountains make up most of the beautiful landscape. You'll never tire of their exquisite beauty and the interesting effect volcanic eruptions have had on the island over the years.
Because it is so secluded, there are many species of plant and wildlife on St Helena that you'll never see anywhere else. Enjoy the sights of the bright green of Black Cabbage plants or the soft delicate petals of St Helena Ebony.
Head over to Deadwood Plain and try to spot the Wirebird, the same bird featured on the island's flag. It's something every visitor should strive to see during their holiday on the island.
And it's not only on land where the unique critters live. If you enjoy diving or boating, get ready for new fish to watch. The St Helena Wrasse almost seems to glow green in the water, and the St Helena Damselfish looks like a fish made of stone.
You'll never have an experience quite like the one you'll have here on St Helena Island.
Many Local Attractions
On top of all the unique vegetation and wildlife, there are numerous attractions to entice you as well.
Explore monuments and museums that explain the history of the island and its ties to Napoleon. Look around in local shops filled with treats and souvenirs made with native St Helena craftsmanship.
Bask in the stained glass colours of St James's Church or find out if your family has ties to the island with the help of The Archives. There's both a national park and an observatory that make full use of the isolated location.
There's never a dull day when you stay at the Harris's Guest House. You'll always have something to bring enjoyment to your holiday.
Adventures at Every Turn
If you long for excitement and something a little more physical, don't worry. St Helena has an abundance of adventure potential.
There are numerous hiking and diving areas, each boasting their own unique flair and challenge.
There's the Millennium Forest to hike through or Deadwood Plain to learn about. And when you're surrounded by crystalline oceans, you'll never run out of diving possibilities.
Looking for something even more thrilling? Climb up old Jacob's Ladder for one of the best views of Jamestown and the oceans below. With 699 steps and history starting way back in 1829, there's nothing quite like reaching the top of this special place.
Although the island is smaller than most popular holiday retreats, St Helena doesn't hold back. There are so many things available to see and explore, you'll find yourself wanting to go back for more as soon as possible.
It's not only the warm welcome you get at Harris's Guest House. It's also the fact that you get a top-notch experience, all for less.
