Overview

About the property

Luxury Home, Ocean View 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Sea Dream House is a newly built house, of over 4000 sq ft with 5 spacious bedrooms, ideal for family and friends get-togethers. Situated on the edge of Dunmore Town with a view of incredible sunsets from the large deck. We are minutes from the harbour and ocean beach and easy walking distance to the town. While not 'on the water', we are ideally located to suit those who want a true island home in the #1 rated island (2005) in the Caribbean by Travel and Leisure Magazine. With a large common living/kitchen area for get-together meals and fun, it also offers privacy for those quiet times we long for on vacation. We have hosted international guests for gatherings and wedding guests who want to share their island vacation as well as many families who want to vacation in the Bahamas. With a large full gourmet kitchen, you can cook yourself or hire a local cook for stay-in meals.

Our 2 wrap around balconies offer stunning beautiful views of the sunset, the quaint island town of Dunmore and you can even see over to the beach side. Always offering a gentle breeze and a place from which to read a book, have a cocktail or just watch the world go by. We are very flexible on arrival and departure days and will do our best to set you up with the kind of special holiday the Bahamas offers. Scuba, snorkeling, sightseeing, wave surfing or laying out and tanning on he beach....truly it is better in the Bahamas.

The house caters especially to groups who want to get together for a holiday but want also to have their own privacy. The large house and high ceilings are conducive to both.

About Bill Corcoran/Owner

I am the proud father of three wonderful children. We love the Bahamas and have been coming down to Harbour Island for 18 years, when we first spotted this property. The house was built as a dream to share with like minded families and friends who wanted a luxurious holiday on a quiet island with lots of things to do and one of the best beaches in the world.

Scuba Diving, sailing, swimming, or just a day at the beach, you can't do better than Harbour Island and Seadreamhouse.

Bill Corcoran/Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why Bill Corcoran/Owner chose Harbour Island

I bought this property and developed it as a family home. The view of the sunsets from either of the wrap around balconies is nothing short of spectacular with a 360 view of the island. I come from a large family and wanted a place where all of us could share and get together to enjoy this wonderful island, the great weather, fabulous beaches and not feel like we needed to go out every evening for expensive dinners and drinks.

What makes this house unique

This was built and designed as a family/group home holiday spot. We cater to family gettogethers or large extended families or groups of families who want to travel together. The house has a large kitchen/living room area ideal for dinners and lunches while others can watch TV sit outside with a drink or play games on the tables. Casual, yet friendly the decor speaks to a home away from home with over-sized beds, individual bathrooms and the convenience of cooking at home. It is walking distance to the beach, the town and tennis courts and basketball courts.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for allowing my wife, myself, and our family to vacation at Harbour Island. We could not have had a better time and the home was perfect for our group. Everyone had comfortable beds to sleep in and the multiple bathrooms were especially appreciated. My family will tell you I am a fanatic on using power and heat efficiently no difference in the Bahamas! Cagney did a great job keeping us in clean bedding and towels. We tried to keep ahead of her in the kitchen, especially when the biggest group was there. We cooked ourselves most meals as the restaurants were quite expensive and taking a bunch of 3 to 10 year olds out for dinner isn't much fun. That big cook stove is marvelous. Grocery stores were fine. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruits and vegetables, usually much better quality than we can get at home this time of year. We enjoyed Captain Bob's meat and seafood, as you said, as good as at home. We found it a little difficult to find fresh fish as the windy weather kept the fishermen ashore frequently. But we did find fresh tuna, red snapper, and trigger fish, all of which we found very tasty. Also I will be hungry a long time for Arthur's coconut bread which we all really enjoyed. Makes great French toast.

We met Gail from the Regan House, who told us that she was your cousin. She was fun to visit with, usually on the pink beach, and insisted our children come to her lace to use her boogie boards, etc. Our grandchildren had great fun playing with the neighbor children, football, hide and seek, etc. The neighbor kids were especially taken by 2 of our granddaughters with long blonde hair. The young boys often wanted to gently touch it and the girls were flattered by the attention. The children were very polite and were sad nice our grandchildren left. They do seem to enjoy conversation with adults and stopped by when we were around. They were never a problem.

We were concerned about the shower in the first upstairs, the blue one facing west. When our grand children used it there would be a small amount of water leaking down stairs in the center of that kitchen/great room. We let Cagney know but I don't think anything was done about it yet. I pounded a few nails sticking up in the flooring upstairs. And my wife cleaned all of the glass candle/sand holders scattered around the house. We also enjoyed Canadian television, especially "Hockey night in Canada"! Our daughter who lives in Maine gets the stations as well.

I apologize for such a long not

Absolutely perfect!! Great location and very spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better house on Harbour Island. My family of 6 had plenty of space inside the house. The kitchen and den are perfect for large family meals or just hanging out watching tv or playing cards. Everything you would need to cook is provided. We went fishing a couple of times and was able to cook a feast that everyone enjoyed. My son walked just down the hill every night to play basketball with the locals. He felt very welcomed.

Cagney the housekeeper is great. She is also a wealth of knowledge about the island and things to do.

A couple of hints about Harbour Island. Except for the big restaurants/marinas, cash only is accepted. There is an 24/7 ATM in the RBC bank on Dunmore. Definitely rent a golf cart. It is the only way to get around.

We will be back soon! Loved the house and the locals.

Owner's Response: We love to have groups of families and friends for quality time spent together at Harbour Island. The house offers both privacy and lots of room for sitting in the cool of the air conditioned rooms and watching sunsets or cooking and sharing favourite meals. Take some time and enjoy life again at Seadreamhouse.

An amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Seadreams is the perfect getaway in Harbour Island. The home is very comfortable, it well appointed and has everything you need. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, it is perfect for both small and larger groups. The home is centrally located to everything you need, 2 minute golf cart ride or 10 minute walk to the beach, walking distance to Arthur's Bakery, Gusty's bar, etc. The owner, Bill, is lovely to deal with and extremely helpful. It is truly a home away from home. I didn't want to leave. I would HIGHLY recommend this property.
