Dunmore Town house description

WHITE LODGE

Historic property spanning both sides of Dunmore Street, with private dock for swimming and boating on the front lot, and private tennis court behind the house at rear.

Five minutes walk from town or beach.

The main house at White Lodge is a classic Bahamian cottage built in the 1860s, and originally located on the site of the present-day Princess Street Art Gallery. In the 1930s, the house was moved to its waterfront seat on Dunmore Street, and gained side porches. A gracious front porch and expansive two-tier terrace offer privacy and unrivaled bay views.

Spectacular outdoor spaces for gathering, eating, and reading. Two additional air-conditioned sleeping cottages comprise a total of five bedrooms and five baths.

Charming décor.

Morning maid service six days weekly; cooking can be included via separate arrangement.

                        My family hadn't been to Harbour Island for 40 years and we planned a family reunion. White Lodge was the ideal place to stay. The house has everything we could asked for and more - old world charm, very cute updated decorating, lots of space, a perfect location and well equipped with everything. The grounds are beautiful with many places for family members to go to spread out - patios on the front, upper left, lower left, upper balcony and down at the dock. It is a 5 min walk to the spectacular beach and a 10 walk into town. The dock is a lovely spot to relax with comfortable chairs and 2 umbrellas at the dock house. We took a morning swim there each day after playing tennis on our court. The children loved playing at the dock and having kayaks. The house has so many thoughtful touches - night lights in the bathrooms, games of all kinds, a selection of cds, all types of kitchen gadgets, cook books, extra hats for the sun, beach stuff - towels,chairs,umbrellas- tennis racquets, Wifi, books on Harbour Island history, lots of reading books to choose from. The bed sheets and towels are luxuriously thick and soft. It feels like home, only so much better. The staff is superb - very knowledgeable, discreet, and helpful for anything we needed. We had reserved gold carts at Johnson's but they didn't have them when we got here. The house manager, Dean, found 2 carts for us immediately. My mother needed a prescription so he went with her to the clinic to help her get it. The gardener Mango got my son some bait so he could fish off the dock. I can't think of anything lacking. We hate the thought of leaving in a few days!! It has been the best vacation!
