About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
The beach, only a short walk over the dunes and past a row of gorgeous plantation-style estates, is nearly three miles long. A five minute walk to the calm protected waters on the bay side leads to licensed water sports providers, fishing guides, and gorgeous sunsets to be seen nightly from gourmet restaurants and bars with a water and sky-view. It's also a great place to check out the incredible yachts that pull into the harbor.
Most locals get around in golf carts, and rentals are readily available for your stay.
While the restaurants are top-notch, the cottage has a full kitchen and a new propane grill for those who like to cook. Shop for fresh-caught fish or conch at the daily market. Relax and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea in the comfort of our spacious living room with fresh-baked goodies from the local bakery.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and attached bath. A bedroom (with queen bed) and a room with two twins share a bath. A pull-out convertible sofa provides an additional queen bed.
We have a large, fenced yard for kids to play outdoors. The house is nestled between four large banyan trees that provide shade and keep all the rooms cool. Ceiling fans are located in all of the bedrooms and the living room (the house is not air-conditioned). These accommodations are a bargain compared to other alternatives on the island.
If you like shopping, there are wonderful boutiques in town as well as excellent local shops that carry Bahamian-made goods. No foreign currency worries – the Bahamian dollar is on a par with the U.S. dollar. The local bank has a conveniently located ATM, and credit cards are accepted almost everywhere.
Harbour Island is the best of the Caribbean – small, friendly, laid back, comfortable, warm, and fun. As former supermodel and world traveler Helena Christensen recently told the Wall Street Journal, Harbour Island is 'a wonderful little island with beautiful beaches, a great restaurant culture and friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The place is almost entirely car-free, so children can run around by themselves. I've gone there with my son for years. The island is full of lizards and he loves to hunt for them.'

Harbour Island frequently experiences strong storms. If there is a storm or hurricane, no refunds will be given unless (1) local authorities order mandatory evacuations or (2) flights to/from North Eleuthra airport (ELH) are cancelled due to a hurricane warning. The day on which authorities order a mandatory evacuation, the Owner will refund to the Guest any unused portion of the rent, including any advance rent paid for a period when there is a hurricane warning in effect.
A deposit of 50% is due immediately at the time of booking to secure the rental. The deposit is refundable only according to section 8 of this Agreement, and applied towards rental fees.

Year Purchased: 1956
About: Our family began coming to Harbour Island for long vacations in 1956. We have owned several houses on the island and, in 1992, we built a very special cottage for family vacations and get-togethers.
Why Dunmore Town, Bahamas:
Harbour Island is a wonderful place for beach lovers, runners and walkers, swimmers, surfers, snorkelers, boating enthusiasts, and fishermen. It is a low-key place that has no large hotels, no theme parks, and no crowds.
