Animal Crossing Wiki

Harv's Island is the home of Harvey in New Horizons. After the Deserted Island gains its third resident, Harvey arrives to invite the player to travel to his island via Dodo Airlines. There, Harvey runs a free photography studio in his house that he calls Photopia and eventually opens a plaza of shops in the same style as the City in City Folk.


Harvey's house is equivalent to a fully-upgraded player house in layout, but with all the rooms taking the shape of the fully upgraded player's entrance room, and contains many furniture items the player may not yet have in their catalog. Exploring Photopia's rooms will automatically add said items to their catalog.


Any furniture previously added to the player's catalog may be placed in Photopia and can be customized if possible. The player is not allowed to choose the color of furniture that has different variations but cannot be customized, like the humidifier or street lamp.

Posters obtained by the player may be used to create scenes, even if they cannot purchase said poster.


Players can scan amiibo or use current player and animal villagers to pose in their scenes. Any unlocked reactions can be applied to them, as well as clothing previously added to the player's catalog.

Any villagers used as models in Photopia will take photos with Harvey after the player leaves. These can then be purchased through the Nook Stop as posters for 1,000 Bells each. Posters of villagers not on the player's island will not be added to the Nook Stop list if obtained as a gift from another player and will need to be manually searched for in the search function in order to purchase it.


During the Wedding Season that takes place in June, the player is asked by Reese and Cyrus to take wedding photos in exchange for items related to the event.


As part of the 2.0 Free Update, once the main storyline is complete, Harvey expands his island with the help of Harriet to have a plaza, featuring shops run by new and previously seen island visitors, such as Tortimer, Katrina, Cyrus and Reese, Leif, Saharah, Kicks, and Redd (the latter four changing their stock weekly). With the exception of Harriet, each shop costs 100,000 Bells to set up. Once a shop is paid in full, the desired vendor NPC will become available the next day at 5 AM. The player can only open one shop at a time.

Each of the vendors of the island specialize in the following services:

  • Katrina can read the player's fortune or reveal their bond with a specific Villager.
  • Saharah sells rugs, as well as wallpaper and flooring. Unlike her visits to the Deserted island, all of her inventory is visible, can be purchased multiple times, and she does not accept or give out Saharah Tickets.
  • Tortimer allows the player to access their storage to store or retreve items remotely. During autumn, Cornimer will appear in his place and he will offer free acorns to the player.
  • Cyrus can fully customize store-bought, ready-made furniture the player otherwise cannot customize with customization kits. Each item has a set fee per customization depending on its original buying price.
  • Leif sells starts for various vegetables and shrubs, as well as flower seeds.
  • Redd sells two pieces of art, in addition to hosting a raffle where the player can pay 500 Bells to win several hand-held prizes.
  • Kicks sells shoes, socks, and bags.

Each vendor's inventory remains static and swaps every Monday. If they visit the Deserted Island during the week, their stock will be different. An ABD appears to the right of Photopia the day after the plaza is opened, making it easier to donate to the Lloids and use the services of the vendors' facilities.

Harriet, a dear friend of Harvey herself has her own little spot; she can cut your hair for free! She has been doing this for quite a while!

In City Folk, she has her own beauty salon in the city.

In New Leaf, Harriet still runs Shampoodle which is now located in Main Street above the Able Sisters store.

Added in the New Horizons 2.0 update, Harriet appears on Harv's Island as the co-owner and hairstylist, and can give the player exclusive hairstyles that can then be used with a mirror. The only requirement needed in order to unlock her as a vendor NPC in the plaza is to simply open one of the seven other shops with 100,000 Bells.

All vendors on Harv's island open at 5 AM. Their closing hours are as follows:

Depending on the weekday, either Saharah, Leif, Redd, or Kicks will not be present on Harv's island as they're visiting the player's island for that particular day. Redd will also be absent from the plaza every Sunday in August for the Fireworks Show to host a special version of his Raffle with different prizes. All vendors appear on Harv's island only when Flick, C.J., Gulliver, Gullivarrr, Label, K.K. Slider, Daisy Mae, or the holiday visitors Pavé, Zipper T. Bunny, Jack, Franklin, or Jingle visit the player's island.
