Featured on House Hunters International!

Chatterbox is located in the heart of Dunmore Town. Built in the late 1800's by the island's first contractor, it was fully renovated in 2012, making it a historic house with modern amenities. It is a three bedroom (two bedrooms with queen size beds, one bedroom with two double beds), two bath home with wood floors, comfortable furniture, a cook's kitchen and lots of charm. A second floor patio and widow's walk offer stunning sunset views. A covered terrace on the first floor for entertaining or just relaxing as well as a porch swing on the front patio to enjoy the island breeze.

Literally steps away from the grocery store, bakery and deli, nothing is out of reach. The pink sand beach is a short walk away and golf carts are available for hire for exploring the island. Bone fishing, deep sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling are all easily accessible services! The services of a housekeeper are included every day except Sundays and holidays.

Wi-fi, cable tv, whole home stereo system, a safe, security cameras and free long distance.

Adorable cottage with charm and amenities!

We had a fabulous time at the Chatterbox!!! Comfortable beds, fresh linens, and luxe towels. Great location in town, an outdoor shower and deck! We will be back!

Not only is Chatterbox in the perfect location- close to both restaurants, shops, and the beach, but it's the most well appointed home we've ever stayed in. Trish thought of everything! From the monogrammed towels and yeti cooler we took on the boat, to the beach chairs and sun hats we used every day. Fantastic stay!

Harbour Island perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Chatterbox is such a fantastic location. Very comfortable, great charm and style. Trish the owner is amazing and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Right opposite Pigly Wigly so very easy to buy all your food and drinks and perfect to see the town buzzing past you. The beds were also v comfortable and lots of space to enjoy a relaxing holiday, yet still in the heart of the action.

Chic and Comfortable Home in the Heart of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors to Harbour Island and Chatterbox has been our favorite! The location is so walkable to the beach, harbour, Arthur's bakery, Piggly Wiggly, Blue Rooster and Valentines, to name a few. The house is comfortable, stylishly decorated and well-maintained. The rooftop deck is a plus with stunning views. We loved the housekeeper, Nika, as she was so accommodating and responsive when we had any questions. For a true Harbour Island experience, Chatterbox is your house!

Fun Island, Awesome Location, Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from Harbour Island for a wedding, I can say without a doubt that we had the best accommodations of the entire group. Our group of 3 couples eschewed the expensive hotels and rented Chatterbox for 4 nights and could not have been happier. It is a short 2-3 block walk from the main ferry dock, so you do not even need to have a cart immediately upon arrival (I'd recommend taking a quick left on Bay Street for a stop to see The Conch King for his fresh conch salad before doing anything else!) There is a grocery store and very well stocked beer/liquor/wine store directly across the street.

Everything is appointed perfectly in the house; the bedrooms are large, bathrooms are nice, there are several seating/hang-out areas both inside and outside, and even a rooftop deck with a view of the setting sun.

Trish thought of everything; guests need to bring very little in terms of supplies needed for a beach vacation. It is also very nice that unlike many VRBO that I have stayed in previously there is daily housekeeping. The housekeepers were very friendly and would ask what time to come the next day depending on our schedules. Trish is also extremely responsive to any questions you have, prior to and during the trip.

Overall, there is nothing but positive things to say about the house. I hope to be back to the island someday, and if I am it will certainly involve a stay at Chatterbox!

Best kept secret in Harbour Island!!

  • 5 of 5

IF you are visiting Harbour Island and need a charming yet updated and wonderful home to stay in the heart of town, look no further... Chatterbox is THE BEST SPOT. Family & child friendly this home offers all the charm and authenticity of Briland while combining modern amenities like air conditioning, updated kitchen, outdoor dining, outdoor shower, and more. Icing on the cake is beach chairs, beach toys and beach towels!!! The bed linens and towels are five star... I couldn't rave more about them!

My husband booked this as a surprise trip for my 40th birthday and we are long time visitors of the island (3rd generation)... Keep in mind we have a deep understanding of what's available to rent and what is worth it. There is not other place I would have rather have stayed than Chatterbox. It's the perfect combination of island charm meets modern needs. We brought our 3 year old child and felt completely comfortable having her there. The house has a 1 bedroom bath on the first floor and 2 bedroom 1 bath upstairs...think old cape house meets chic island vibe. We felt very comfortable and safe in this home with our family.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. If you want to be in town this location is THE BEST. Located right next to Piggly Wiggly for grocery needs and right down the block from the Deli and Beverage store... need I say more? Okay... Blue Rooster (fabulous island clothing shop is right across the street as well). Night time needs? The popular and wonderful Daddy D's is also within walking distance.

While the location is key one might wonder about privacy at the home. The well hidden gem has high fences, gates that can be locked and shutters...privacy is no problem. Bonus? Yup... it has a 3rd floor outdoor deck that affords beautiful views of the bay and sunsets. Worth it in spades.

Air conditioning and wifi worked seamlessly....which, having been visiting the island my whole life, I can't say that is the case for all homes.

The first floor is roomy and offers a great outdoor patio comfortable to serve dinner on as well (we made two in home meals that were easily prepared in the well stocked kitchen...i.e. pots, pans and grill all in great supply). Wouldn't be a complete review without mentioning the wonderful front porch and swing that bring you back to simpler times in life...and remind you of the very reason you come to forget and relax.
