Overview

Dunmore Town House Rental Photos and Description

A 3 bedroom Cottage located in the heart of Dunmore Town, Harbour Island

Salt Box is a 200 year old Bahamian Cottage, tastefully restored recently by a world famous interior designer. It has 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom and 2 bathrooms, a fully functioning kitchen and a stunning outdoor shower as well as a beautiful garden. It is a little piece of paradise, a small oasis and just a small walk away from the beautiful 5 mile long Pink Sands Beach. Its location in the centre of town also means many of the incredible bars and restaurants are just a short walk away. Salt Box is the perfect place to come and relax under the Bahamian stars!

About Natasha Shepard

The house is owned by my wife and I. My wife is Bahamian and I am British. We bought the house after absolutely falling in love with its old world charm. It is our holiday home, as we travel there often from our home in Nassau, and will continue to be so for many, many years. We hope you enjoy it and Harbour Island as much as we do!

Natasha Shepard purchased this house in 2012

Why Natasha Shepard chose Dunmore Town

We chose this house as Harbour Island is our absolute favorite place in The Bahamas. As people who live busy lives in Nassau, we love nothing more than to relax on the stunning beach, or at a superb restaurant over a nice glass of wine, and find Harbour Island to be everything we could ever want. The combination of the nations best restaurants (such as The Landing, The Rock House, Pink Sands Resort, The Dunmore, Blu Bungalow etc) and the beautiful setting made Harbour Island an easy choice for our holiday home. Cash Box had everything we wanted as well. Its charm, history and beauty were for us, unparalleled in the Bahamas and we enjoy it more and more every time we get the time to be there!

What makes this house unique

The charm and uniqueness of Salt Box are incredible. Built around 1800, the building was quarried from the ground beneath the building, meaning the house is made from Bahamian Limestone. The thick rocks.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of four rented Saltbox for our Spring Break in 2013. The home was perfect for us. It is charming and comfortable with tons of character and rustic touches. It is in town where there is good bit of local activity. There is liquor store next door owned by the family that used to own this home and the owner was extremely nice. It came in handy for bottles of water and other supplies when needed. The home is nicely decorated with wifi and cable tv, although we did not turn the tv's on one time during our trip (that should tell you all you need to know). My kids are 10 and 7 and each had his own room. They loved the outdoor shower as well.

We were traveling with friends who stayed at one of the nicest resorts on the island. Our bedrooms and furnishings were every bit as nice as those in their resort room. And we had much more room and privacy. No restaurant or bar though!

A few things to know - there is a little rust and wear here and there but that is from the salt air and environment. It is windows-and-doors open living and it is hard to keep shower curtains rods, iron beds and fixtures from getting a little tarnish. There are roosters everywhere and they start up at about 4 every morning. We did not sleep much that first night but laughed about it later. There is some road noise too-mostly golf carts. It is not really noticeable downstairs but upstairs can get a little noisy early in the morning if the shutters are left wide open. Turn the fans on high or shut it up and turn on the air conditioning. We did and slept great after that first night - it helped to have such a comfortable bed too.

We had housecleaning service during our stay and the caretaker checked on us from time to time as well. All in all it was a wonderful stay-just right for us. We would definitely go again and stay in SaltBox. It is a special home for a special place.
