WaterColor, Harbour Island, Bahamas. An original boat captains cottage built in late 1700's. This charming island home walking distance to the best of Harbour Islands shops, restaurants, harbour and breathtaking three mile pink sand beach. The home has two main bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, plus an additional Annex (detached /originally boat house, then candy shop) built in bunk bedroom with detached bathroom and outdoor shower which is great for older children, a couple, in-laws or additional guests. The decision of chilling out on the front porch catching up on island news and events or relaxing on one of the private back deck/porches to relish in the peace, quiet, and calm that island life has to offer is the toughest decision you will have to make at this island cottage. The outdoor living spaces are spacious and comfortable often offering a lovely breeze from either the harbour or the beach depending on the direction of the wind that day.
WaterColor has been featured in 'Town and Country,' the book 'Island Life' as well as many other articles on Harbour Island. Enjoy the quirky shabby chic island charm and convenience at WaterColor. Relax, have fun, and enjoy!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: The girls in the Harbour 2009
Why the Owner Chose Dunmore Town: The owners father taught school for the catholic church (only school at that time) on the island in 1965, he decided to make his second home there. Jessica partially grew up on the island and she and her husband Jim with there good friend Patrick purchased Watercolor in 2003, they are happy to be able to share the island expreince with WaterColor's guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love coffee/tea in the morning on the front porch. Often walking the very short distance down to the harbour dock with our coffee and watching the fisherman head out for the day and hope for dolphin and sea turtle sightings.
We love happy hour in the evening on the upper deck (outdoor living) viewing the sunset and enjoying the quiet.
In between we enjoy running and yoga on the beach, boating/snorkeling/ fishing in the harbour, the local hang-outs, driving around in the golf-cart always detouring to a wonderful new adventure, everything a day on the island has to offer.
Several amazing dinner spots to walk to or cooking at home in the tiny but incredibly well-stocked kitchen (2 crock-pots, rice maker etc..) and dining on the antique french outdoor dining table at WaterColor with family and friends is even better.
