Relax in the wicker chairs and couches. Enjoy the pervasive Wi-Fi connectivity inside and out. Cook in the gourmet kitchen. Eat casually at the bar or dine at the formal dining table under cathedral ceilings or alfresco on the beach side deck or garden porch. Choose between the cool air from the central A/C throughout all rooms, or have large fans waft circulating breezes. Enjoy the ocean view from your bedroom windows, or step outside onto your private deck area. The staggered design ensures privacy for each room whilst ensuring an optimal flow within. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with either shower or bath. Built in closets throughout the house not only offer ample space for your belongings but are also stocked with linen, towels and beach towels. Have peace of mind by locking your valuables and electronics away in the hotel safes.

Car: Not Necessary
You can reach the restaurants on the bay side and the ocean either by walking along the pink sand beach, or by a short ride in your golf cart. The Marina and Ramora hotel are close by with a great outside/inside restaurant and view. Snorkeling and scuba diving are incredible. You can go out with a boat or just go straight in in front of the house.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We are a family of four living in Nokomis, FL. We all are able to do the things we love at Harbour Island. My wife loves walking the beach for miles with her friends or doing yoga on the deck. My sons have both qualified as scuba divers at Jeff Fox diving and we love to dive world class sites like the current cut or the canyons. When friends come we dive the potato and onions wreck with them as that can be done by beginners without a license and the non divers can snorkel above. My older son loves wakeboarding and the younger is an avid fisherman so we're out in a boat in the bay most days too. Mostly we enjoy snorkeling at the reef in front of the house or body surfing when the waves pick up or just relaxing.
Why the Owner Chose Dunmore Town, Bahamas:
We looked for a vacation resort for our children to return to every year similar to that which I had known as a child on South Africa’s Wild Coast: warm water, friendly locals, long spectacular beaches, relaxed life style, house directly on the beach. Harbour Island uniquely met the criteria and everyone we met had been there yearly for at least 25 years. Landfall’s solid build quality and finish satisfied my German wife’s stringent requirements. When we stood on the deck overlooking the beautiful pink sand beach we knew we'd found it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everything you need is right there. The wrap around deck has unrestricted views of, and access to, the protected beach and safe waters of the ocean. This makes Landfall particularly suited to families with children. The reef directly in front of the house is very close, offers great snorkeling and can easily be reached by children. Every room in Landfall opens directly onto the deck. There is a covered veranda on the garden side too so that the outdoors can be enjoyed sunrise to sunset no matter what wind or weather. The large, secluded garden also encloses 2 further cottages which can be rented with or without the main house in any combination. A powerful generator ensures that the new kitchen as well as the in-house air conditioning function continuously despite the island’s frequent power cuts. The seven bathrooms have been renovated in 2015 and the electrics and fittings upgraded too.
