- Please Note - Due to the the uniqueness of our home and VRBO's quoting limitations, the rental rate generated by VRBO for On-Line (automatic) booking and VRBO "Quotable Rates", is for the MAIN HOUSE ONLY ( this is 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths; sleeps six maximum).
If you would like to add any or all of the three additional suites (attached to house, but with separate entrances), I will send you an accurate quote based on the information you provide. Rest assured that our house is only rented to ONE group at a time (even if the other rooms remain unused).
Choose the amount of the house you need and only pay for that portion; you will STILL have the entire property to yourself. $450/night is the minimum rate per night rate for the MAIN house only during low season (2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms; sleeps 6 max.). Note - there is a minimum 2 night stay to book.
The maximum rate would be $933/night for the entire house (5 bedrooms PLUS sitting room/bedroom/kitchenette in Upstairs Master Suite; 5 full bathrooms + Outdoor shower) for the minimum 2 night stay during high season and the maximum number of guests (16). NOTE: DISCOUNTS are given for full week stay, low season and 4 week stay or longer. THANKS!

You'll know you're 'not in Kansas anymore' in this charming waterfront Cape Cod style home on beautiful and historic Bay Street. The serenity and beauty of the Blue Dolphin and it's property make it a perennial favorite for photo shoots of catalogs (including Chicos (spring 2015), Island Company 2007) and magazine/ newspaper articles from Vogue April 1999 to the Wall Street Journal April 23-24, 2011 D10.
The home is ideal for large family gatherings or for couples who want the flexibility of a large house when family or friends are visiting and a cozy cottage when they are alone. The main house on the ground floor sleeps six and includes two bedrooms and two full baths. It may be rented by itself or guests may choose to add up to three additional bedrooms and bathrooms in incremental prices as needed. THE BLUE DOLPHIN WILL ONLY BE RENTED TO ONE GROUP AT A TIME.
The fabulous 180 degree harbour view climaxes each evening with colorful and lengthy sunsets which may be enjoyed from any one of four porches (front patio; side bedroom covered porch, upstairs sun deck and private master bedroom balcony).
The Blue Dolphin has its own dock right out in front for your dinghy or rented Boston Whaler. The house also has a large and lovely lighted backyard garden filled with beautiful hibiscus, fragrant jasmine, colorful allamanda flowers, a hammock calling your name, as well as a rustic, but very functional (and fun) barbecue pit.
Harbour Island was rated #1 in the region of the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Bermuda by Travel & Leisure in 2005 "Best Of" issue and AGAIN in 2015! The BEACH has been rated one of the 10 best in the World by Condé Nast magazine and was #1 on the Travel Channel's "10 Best Beaches in the Caribbean" 2003 episode. The water in the harbour and at the beach is crystal clear azure, so inviting.
The Blue Dolphin is conveniently located only steps away from shops, restaurants and a short walk or even shorter golf cart ride (preferred mode of island travel) to the famous three mile PINK SAND BEACH.
Enjoy the best of both worlds by spending your days at the beach and your mornings and evenings on the scenic and tranquil harbour.
