Dunmore Town cottage description

This lovely spacious cedar cottage is located on a small, friendly island surrounded by one of the world's most beautiful pink sand beaches and turquoise waters. We built this cottage for our family, and love to share it with friends and beach-lovers. That's why we've made it one of the best lodging deals on Harbour Island.

The beach, only a short walk over the dunes and past a row of gorgeous plantation-style estates, is nearly three miles long. A five minute walk to the calm protected waters on the bay side leads to licensed water sports providers, fishing guides, and gorgeous sunsets to be seen nightly from gourmet restaurants and bars with a water and sky-view. It's also a great place to check out the incredible yachts that pull into the harbor.

Most locals get around in golf carts, and rentals are readily available for your stay.

While the restaurants are top-notch, the cottage has a full kitchen and a new propane grill for those who like to cook. Shop for fresh-caught fish or conch at the daily market. Relax and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea in the comfort of our spacious living room with fresh-baked goodies from the local bakery.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and attached bath. A bedroom (with queen bed) and a room with two twins share a bath. A pull-out convertible sofa provides an additional queen bed.

We have a large, fenced yard for kids to play outdoors. The house is nestled between four large banyan trees that provide shade and keep all the rooms cool. Ceiling fans are located in all of the bedrooms and the living room (the house is not air-conditioned). These accommodations are a bargain compared to other alternatives on the island.

If you like shopping, there are wonderful boutiques in town as well as excellent local shops that carry Bahamian-made goods. No foreign currency worries – the Bahamian dollar is on a par with the U.S. dollar. The local bank has a conveniently located ATM, and credit cards are accepted almost everywhere.

Harbour Island is the best of the Caribbean – small, friendly, laid back, comfortable, warm, and fun. As former supermodel and world traveler Helena Christensen recently told the Wall Street Journal, Harbour Island is 'a wonderful little island with beautiful beaches, a great restaurant culture and friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The place is almost entirely car-free, so children can run around by themselves. I've gone there with my son for years. The island is full of lizards and he loves to hunt for them.'

                      Manager info

                      About: Our family began coming to Harbour Island for long vacations in 1956. We have owned several houses on the island and, in 1992, we built a very special cottage for family vacations and get-togethers.

                      Why Dunmore Town:
                      Harbour Island is a wonderful place for beach lovers, runners and walkers, swimmers, surfers, snorkelers, boating enthusiasts, and fishermen. It is a low-key place that has no large hotels, no theme parks, and no crowds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      On Harbour Island, you are not only treated to one of the world's most peaceful pink sand beaches, but you also get the opportunity to experience a friendly island culture with a sense of its fascinating history. Only three miles long, the island has first-class restaurants as well as stalls and takeout places selling conch and other delicious local specialties.
