ennaKimberly,
Both articles are in this months,the february, issue.The one with the Courage Band in it will not be on the CNT website as it only features travel info.
I will bring copies down to briland at the end of the month or you can email my assitant at travellerfashion@condenast.co.uk and she'll send you the magazine.
Hope you're well.

KimberlyHi, Enna:
Thanks for the heads up! While I couldn't find the article that you mention, I did find a nice writeup on Rock House, at http://www.cntraveller.com/Special_Features/The_Hot_List_2003/Rock_House_Harbour_Island/Default.asp. Do you have a link for the feature that mentions Courage Band, by any odd chance? Thanks!

THE FACTS ABOUT ROCK HOUSE HARBOUR ISLAND

This nine-bedroom boutique hotel owned by J Wallace Tutt, Miami-based builder-decorator to the stars (he was responsible for Versace's South Beach mansion), opened in November 2002. The main building was originally a private home and later a B&B; at the bottom of the garden is a beautifully restored former Catholic school dating from the 1840s and in between is a heated, guests-only swimming pool surrounded by nine cabanas (one for each room). There are two restaurants: the relaxed Grill on the palm-shaded patio with its lively cocktail bar and the more formal Rock House with its phenomenal sunset views over the harbour. The bedrooms are all decorated differently in an understated 'upscale-casual' manner, with air-conditioning, cable TV and newly refurbished bathrooms. The Rock House is intimate and about as close in ambience to a private villa as a hotel can get. Thanks to Tutt, it is already proving a popular hangout for celebrities. At the time of opening, the service wasn't up to scratch, although the kindness of the staff more than made up for it. Rock House probably isn't suitable for children but the Friday night all-you-can-eat barbecue special attracts just about everyone else.

WHEN TO GO
December to January for the season or April for a quieter break

WHICH ROOM TO BOOK
Ask for a harbour-side room with a terrace for sunsets; otherwise the school house is quieter and more private
