HIBISCUS OCEANFRONT COTTAGES ON PINK SAND BEACH

Dunmore Town Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Your vacation begins when you step onto the water taxi at three island dock. Magically, your cares and the world fall away into the azure waters as you cross the bay to Harbour Island. At Governor’s dock the welcome goes beyond the sign proclaiming this beautiful island’s motto “Harbour Island, home of the friendly people”; you’ll be helped out of the boat and into the waiting taxi for the short, mile ride to the Landfall property. Sweeping through the gates you will be greeted by the sights, smells and sounds of a tropical garden set at the beach. The winding path leads past Dilly trees with their sweet “brown sugar” fruits, towering coconut palms, lime and banana trees. The Hibiscus cottage rejoices in the bushes that gave it its name and the Garden cottage is nestled in palms and tropical foliage. A grey heron maintains solitary watch on a fallen coconut log whilst the indigenous birds chirp and hop in the trees. A sandy path leads through a canopy of sea grapes through the protective dune to the pink sand beach. Your children will marvel at this sand which, because it was originally coral, is always firm and cool, doesn’t get blown up by the wind and makes wonderful sand castles with moats. You will want to stroll down the 3 mile beach and feel the sand between your toes as the warm water laps around your ankles. The gentle slope of the beach in front of Landfall and the protective reef system ensure that there is no undertow, making it very safe for children to spend hours frolicking in the turquoise waters whilst you stretch out on the loungers that are provided.

Back in Hibiscus Cottage your kids can unwind in front of the flat screen TV watching cable or a DVD, whilst you sit on the deck and work off your emails quickly with the high speed wireless internet. The central air conditioning and ceiling fans ensure cool wafting breezes even in the hottest months and the generator automatically will switch on to power them and the other appliances whenever a power cut occurs. Now comes the most important decision: what to eat? Should you snack on the upstairs deck, or grill downstairs on the patio, or eat at the dining table, or go out? Whether to cook yourselves in the kitchen, eat the delicious island fare which can be prepared for you by Janet, our caring housekeeper (which our kids love!), or have a gourmet meal delivered by nearby Mediterranean restaurant Acquapazza. Or jump in your golf cart (which Anthony, our caretaker can have waiting for you on arrival) and drive the 200 yards across the island to the Harbour Island Marina or Ramora Bay Club, both of which have docks, casual restaurants and swimming pools. Here too you can park your boat, or go diving or deep sea fishing with Jeff Fox Diving, and catch your next meal too! A couple of minutes with the golf cart further the Landing or the Rock House will astound you with their culinary wizardry and gorgeous atmospheres.

Now it’s time for bed and Hibiscus Cottage’s large rooms and high ceilings will match your mood generated by happy days spent swimming, walking or wandering the quaint Dunmore Town under the wide, blue sky and green coconut fronds. The double bedroom has cathedral ceilings and a pull out couch to turn it into a kid’s dorm sleeping 3. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and en-suite bathroom enabling up to 5 people to live in Hibiscus Cottage. For larger families, the Garden Cottage has a large bedroom with two single beds and an en suite bathroom giving you a total of 7 people that can be accommodated. If you are an even larger group then you can occupy the main Landfall house too which sleeps a further 8 people in 4, en suite bedrooms (Separate VRBO listing #284899) for a total of 15 persons. Whatever the size and makeup of your group, you’ll find that the wonderful, relaxed atmosphere touches everybody and ensures a harmonious, fun filled vacation for all, a fact to which our many return guests attest.

We are a family of four living in Concord, MA. We all are able to do the things we love at Harbour Island. My wife loves walking the beach for miles with her friends or doing yoga on the deck. My sons have both qualified as scuba divers at Jeff Fox diving and we love to dive world class sites like the current cut or the canyons. When friends come we dive the potato and onions wreck with them as that can be done by beginners without a license and the non divers can snorkel above. My older son loves wakeboarding and the younger is an avid fisherman so we're out in a boat in the bay most days too. Mostly we enjoy snorkeling at the reef in front of the house or body surfing when the waves pick up or just relaxing.

Alex purchased this cottage in 2002

We looked for a vacation resort for our children to return to every year similar to that which I had known as a child on South Africa’s Wild Coast: warm water, friendly locals, long spectacular beaches, relaxed life style, house directly on the beach. Harbour Island uniquely met the criteria and everyone we met had been there yearly for at least 25 years. The Landfall property’s solid build quality and finish satisfied my German wife’s stringent requirements. The expandability of having three buildings on the property which can be rented in various combinations ensures that everybody can have exactly what they want.

Everything you need is right there. You have direct access to the protected beach and safe waters of the ocean. This makes Hibiscus Cottage particularly suited to families with children. The reef directly in front of the house is very close, offers great snorkeling and can easily be reached by children. Hibiscus and Garden Cottages are set well back from the road in a tropical garden. A powerful generator ensures that the appliances as well as the central air conditioning function continuously despite the island’s frequent power cuts. You can choose whether to only rent Hibiscus or for larger or multiple families take Garden Cottage as well.
