About the Property

Two homes, enclosed property, pool, 5 Bedrooms total, 5 Baths--Sleeps 8, MAX 10

Yellowbird is a beautiful mix of old and new. An historic main house dating back to the 1800s with remodeled kitchen and amenities--and a more recently built, two-story guest cottage with a refreshing pool tucked between the houses. Myriad cozy places to enjoy a cocktail, read a book and relax. We enjoy swinging while tucked away on the front porch to spy the local charm of the island.

The Yellowbird property is totally enclosed and includes two homes. The main house has two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other having two twin-size beds; and two bathrooms. Both bedrooms are tucked up under the eaves and have direct access to the rear verandah. The cottage includes three separate bedrooms, each with its own private bath and entry. The lower bedrooms in the guest cottage adjoin making a family-friendly suite. The upper bedroom has a harbour view.

The set up is ideal for 2 families traveling together.

Yellowbird is decorated in a casual, shabby chic beach style with weathered and chippy paint finishes, slip-covered furniture, wood floors and general ease of living. The pool and garden are the perfect place to relax and cool off. The beach is an eight minute walk or a one minute golfcart ride.


The home is locally managed, and includes wireless internet and generator.

The in-town location affords you the opportunity to feel a part of this special island--you are in the heart of the village here. Walk to all of the shops, restaurants, Valentines Marina/Dive Centre, grocery stores, bakery, deli and down to the harbour to catch the sunset.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We're a family that enjoys entertaining our friends and family and simple island life. Our children, now teenagers, loved the freedom of exploring Harbour Island, collecting hermit crabs, discovering baby chicks, and boogie boarding the crystal waters. During our ten years of owning Yellowbird, we have made several important upgrades to the property while maintaining its historic charm. Installing a generator, remodeling the kitchen, adding a pool & cabana, and employing a house manager that lives on the island has made a major impact on the comfort of our home.

Why the Owner Chose Dunmore Town, Bahamas:
We fell in love with Harbour Island~ its people, natural beauty and way of life. Our children especially love the uncommon freedom of walking to the bakery, local pizza place and ice-cream shop on their own. . The Yellowbird property is completely enclosed.
