About The Owner

My husband and I have been coming to Harbour Island for over 40 years. It is a place where we, as a family, came every year during the children's vacation periods. Now our children are bringing their children to experience the Harbour Island 'magic'.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose North Eleuthera

After coming to the island for over 40 years, we decided to build our own Paradise home.

What makes this house unique

Our house manager, Audrey, makes your stay effortless. She is a delight and is ready to help with any request.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this home with our three teenage kids and it was wonderful. The view is breathtaking and the location is perfect...completely secluded yet close to everything when you want to go out. We usually stay at one of the resorts on Harbour Island so didn't know if we'd like being in a house. We found that the extra space made our trip a lot more comfortable and enjoyed not having to abide by the hotels timeframes for meals. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a five star experience when vacationing in the Bahamas. It simply doesn't get better than this!!!

Absolute heaven.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a month at this glorious property, so we got to know the house and its wonderful staff well (disclosure point: we have rented this house four or five times since 2003, but never for a month). Those who only want to rent on the beach front on Harbour Island don't know what they're missing! This chic Narrows property faces the island of North Eleuthera across the most gorgeous piece of blue water you can imagine--from pale aquamarine to deep violet in hue. The flats are directly in front of the house, so bone fishing is about a three-minute walk away. The sandy bottom is perfect for wading for up to a half mile at low tide. Paddle boards and kayaks are made for this territory. Above all, the sunsets are divine for the cocktail hour! And for those who miss the beach on the oceanside, it's a very short walk to the beach path, which pops out about 100 feet from Pink Sands. This makes a swim and lunch at the Blue Bar very easy. Now for the house itself. It is incredibly well stocked, with everything you could possibly want to entertain your guests. It has all of the kitchen things you need if you like to cook, and if not, there's Internet, satellite TV, a great sound system, a heated pool, bocce court, and "chaises longues" on the expansive pool terrace. The decor is very comfortable both inside and out. One of the things I love about the house is the clear view of the water immediately as you step through the front doors, which we left open most of the time. The property sleeps 8 and every room is ensuite. We always stay in the cottage because my husband loves to sleep with the double doors open at night, but every room is as nice as the next. The owners have thought of every single thing their guests could possibly want, and they truly care that the place is spic and span. Which brings me to the staff. Audrey Curry is the housekeeper (she makes beds, does laundry and dishes so we don't have to), and she is also an excellent cook, especially when it comes to her special dinners of jerk chicken, conch salad and grilled lobster tails. Her brother Barrett keeps the grounds clean and Howard Johnson does a great job on the pool 3x a week. The three of them make your vacation care free. I cannot say enough good things about this house, its location and its crew. A bonus with this house is the nearly tame rooster and his hen (Ozzie and Harriet) who show up occasionally for a treat!

Gumelemi Bluff is A Perfect Mix and More

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a more perfect mix of beauty, privacy and access. The owners were very thoughtful concerning travelers needs and were available to answer any questions concerning the use of the house and navigating the island. It was so special to have the housekeeper who was wonderful and took care of any of our needs. The spacious comfort and nice accommodations of this home were a real luxury. Having the fun activities available - bocce, ping pong, a pool, relaxing poolside loungers, kayaks and paddle boards were a real bonus! All four couples were so greatful to have had such a wonderful place to stay and want to definitely return to Gumelemi Bluff!

Lovely Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I would not hesitate a second to book this house again. The house is extremely well thought out...there are four generous sized bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) - making it feel more like a mini bed and breakfast than a house. The House is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay- Kayaks, hammock, pool table, bocce court, indoor/outdoor sound system, and a BBQ. The pool overlooks the bay with the most beautiful sunset on the island. There is plenty of outdoor seating on the expansive patio that (again) overlooks the gorgeous bay and sunsets. We spent many nights laughing and talking on the outdoor patio furniture. We loved the location of the home...located in the "narrows" and only a short golf cart ride to Dunmore town dining...But still tucked away enough to have privacy. We had four couples in our party...but the house is also perfect for families. We would love to bring our kids back - as there are loads of "fun toys" for them to keep busy all day.

Perfect place for a play date with dear friends......

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Island is incomparable with regards to the perfect island getaway. Tranquil turquoise waters surround this laid back paradise of pastel colored houses, friendly locals, wonderful dining spots, and most of all, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This 3 mile stretch of soft pink sand, with its gentle surf and warm trade winds, will beckon you to just come and relax the day away, and when done, you get to go back to Gulememi Bluff!

The Bluff is welcoming, is tastefully decorated, with 4 beautiful bedroom suites, a large indoor kitchen and living room area, but even better is the outdoor area. The pool deck is huge, with lots of relaxing lounge chairs that flows easily from one area to the next, with an amazing westerly water view where we watched the most amazing sunsets with our friends. Add the bbq for the locally caught lobster and bacci ball court, or take out the kayaks for a run on the crystal clear waters.

The location of the house is really convenient but "tucked away" enough to make it very private. The home owners and housekeeper were so helpful with anything regarding the house or local information and hot spots.

We cant wait to come again.
