Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 10 nights


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.

About Kristen Farrell

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.

Kristen Farrell purchased this house in 2006

Why Kristen Farrell chose Harbour Island

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.

Really cute house with all the necessary amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Very convenient location. We enjoyed being with our college kids but loved that they had their own space and entrance!

Updated true Briland house!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely updated, centrally located house with original charm. Great for our family of three married children and us because it provided us with the community around the pool and in the main house (kitchen, dining and living rooms) while maintaining privacy with the five bedrooms each with their own baths. Plenty of space to accommodate the other 8 members of the family for meals and games whether in the living area or at the pool. Perfect for those who want the true Briland experience!

The house was great...the loctaion was great

  • 4 of 5

Over all the property was great, but there was no hot water in the 3 bedroom cottage for the entire time we were there, and there was not enough bath towels. despite the above mentioned problems, we had a great time and would stay there again. Dunmoretown is a great place to relax.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed our home and vacation to Harbour Island. We always strive to provide a five-star experience and are doing everything we can to address the issues. We have never been told that we have been low on towels. This is an easy fix. We were told by our house manager and house repairman that the faucet was not being turned the correct way for the hot water. We will make sure we go over this with our future guests. Typically, we have been told by our guests that if they encountered a maintenance issue, someone was there to work on the problem immediately. I apologize if this did not happen for you as this is not normal.

Lovely cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Yellowbird. The pool and outdoor space are fantastic (perfect for kids) and the location is perfect for restaurants, shopping and a short walk to the beach. Great for a large family or two families. An oasis in Dunmore town!

The house was beautiful and the location perfect! We could walk to great restaurants and beach. We used the pool and ate our meals at the beautiful cabana by the pool. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed every minute at Yellowbird!

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the yellow bird. It was a perfect house for our

Family and friends to stay at. Having the pool was key

And the service was exceptional when we needed something.

I would recommend this house to a family or large party who want to

Relax and enjoy the island and can feel at home.
