                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: The house is owned by my wife and I. My wife is Bahamian and I am British. We bought the house after absolutely falling in love with its old world charm. It is our holiday home, as we travel there often from our home in Nassau, and will continue to be so for many, many years. We hope you enjoy it and Harbour Island as much as we do!

                      Why Dunmore Town:
                      We chose this house as Harbour Island is our absolute favorite place in The Bahamas. As people who live busy lives in Nassau, we love nothing more than to relax on the stunning beach, or at a superb restaurant over a nice glass of wine, and find Harbour Island to be everything we could ever want. The combination of the nations best restaurants (such as The Landing, The Rock House, Pink Sands Resort, The Dunmore, Blu Bungalow etc) and the beautiful setting made Harbour Island an easy choice for our holiday home. Cash Box had everything we wanted as well. Its charm, history and beauty were for us, unparalleled in the Bahamas and we enjoy it more and more every time we get the time to be there!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The charm and uniqueness of Salt Box are incredible. Built around 1800, the building was quarried from the ground beneath the building, meaning the house is made from Bahamian Limestone. The thick rocks.
