About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Accommodations include four bedrooms (three above, and one at ground level), each with an en suite bath. The master bedroom, with king size bed, has a beautiful white-washed peck cypress cathedral ceiling, and access to the spacious wrap-around porch. Two guest rooms are located on either side of the master bedroom. One is fitted with a queen-size bed, and the second with twin beds. Both rooms have views to the garden, and open to the porch. A study alcove with writing desk is located adjacent to the upstairs bedrooms.
The balcony/porch overlooks the garden and pool. Two daybeds make this a perfect place for outdoor lounging.
A fourth bedroom is located on the ground floor, situated off the garden and courtyard. This bedroom has its own private entrance.
The entry to the home leads to open living and dining areas. Ideal for family enjoyment, the living space is furnished with comfortable seating by Janus et Cie, blended with a mixture of French and Swedish antiques.
The kitchen features peck cypress cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Open upper shelves showcase the beautiful old blue and white Cuban tiles.
The outdoor space is as inviting as the interior of this lovely home - accentuated by one of the largest pools on the island. A large covered porch with a dining table and spacious couches is adjacent to the pool and garden.
The convent has air conditioning, television, phone and internet access. The attentive housekeeper can arrange anything needed to make your Harbor Island stay enjoyable.

The Convent is a classic Bahamian coral stone house, built in 1834. It's located one block from the bay, steps away from the Rock House and the Landing. Harbor Island's famous three mile pink sand beach is a short walk away.
Year Purchased: 2009
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After several vacation trips to Harbor island, I set my heart on finding my own house on the island. By good fortune, the Covent became available, and I fell in love with it at first sight. You will too!
