Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Featured on House Hunters International!

Built in the late 1800's by the island's first contractor, he named the home 'Chatterbox' for his wife. Whether or not she appreciated the honour is not known, but the care and detail that went into construction is obvious.

Located in the heart of Dunmore Town, Chatterbox 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is a gem. Trish really has an eye for details, and the interior is so beautifully done, it was a pleasure no matter where you looked. Eartha, the housekeeper, was extremely serviceminded and kind. The house is perfectly situated on the island with a great mix of locals, cool shops and great food places.

WONDERFUL !

  • 5 of 5

Chatterbox was one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed. From the attention to detail in the design, comfortable beds, cleanliness and location, we had nothing to complain about. It doesn't feel like a typical rental home, it feels like you are a guest at someones lovely home in the bahamas and extremely comfortable. Thank you Trish for creating such a beautiful place for us to visit. We hope to come back someday!

Chatterbox is fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Chatterbox for a week and I absolutely enjoyed everything about this place!! Accommodations and services are top notch...Great attention to detail in the home and very comfortable (beds, couches, private sitting areas, outdoor seating). Kitchen is fully stocked and roomy. Lots of utensils and cooking equipment for the nights you want to eat in and one of the main markets, a liquor store and a deli are all right across the street! Easy!! Also, there are beach chairs and towels available for your use...no need to rent them at the beach..they are great and easy to transport on the back of your cart! Additionally, daily maid service was fantastic and there is a washer and dryer at the home which was a huge plus!

Location was fantastic. The central location of this home made it really easy to get to the beach (2 mins in cart, 5 min walk) or down to Bay street where some of the nicer restaurants and marina activities are. Walking or carting...this place is very close to everything.

I highly recommend Chatterbox to anyone!! Totally reasonable pricing (a total bargain if you share with your friends), a beautiful home, top notch service and a fantastic location. Hard to beat this amazing place!

GREAT HOME, CENTRAL LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at "Chatter Box". It is so nice, very well appointed historical home and very nicely decorated. My favorite was the front porch swing. The home is very centrally located and close to everything. I highly recommend this excellent vacation rental.
