We built our home 14 years ago. All amenities have been thoroughly thought out. It has been immaculately maintained to the highest standards. It is on one floor, no stairs. The main house consists of the master bedroom with an outdoor bathroom in addition to the traditional bathroom. Two other spacious bedrooms also have their own individual baths. One of the bedrooms has it's own outdoor shower. (a total of 3 outdoor showers)

The cottage, adjacent to the main house has it own bedroom and bath, living room and Pullman kitchen. It also has an outdoor shower.

Lots of toys for both young and old. 4 Kayaks are available for renters' use. There is a 2800 Sq. ft outdoor terrace which also is home to a ping pong table, backgammon game and sits next to our Bocce court. Fully air-conditioned. Sits above the best bone fishing flats on the island. The house is situated so that the terrace faces west to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets!!!

About The Owner

My husband and I have been coming to Harbour Island for over 40 years. It is a place where we, as a family, came every year during the children's vacation periods. Now our children are bringing their children to experience the Harbour Island 'magic'.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Bahamas

After coming to the island for over 40 years, we decided to build our own Paradise home 10 years ago.

What makes this house unique

Our house manager, Audrey, makes your stay effortless. She is a delight and is ready to help with any request.

Gumelemi Bluff is A Perfect Mix and More

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a more perfect mix of beauty, privacy and access. The owners were very thoughtful concerning travelers needs and were available to answer any questions concerning the use of the house and navigating the island. It was so special to have the housekeeper who was wonderful and took care of any of our needs. The spacious comfort and nice accommodations of this home were a real luxury. Having the fun activities available - bocce, ping pong, a pool, relaxing poolside loungers, kayaks and paddle boards were a real bonus! All four couples were so greatful to have had such a wonderful place to stay and want to definitely return to Gumelemi Bluff!

Lovely Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I would not hesitate a second to book this house again. The house is extremely well thought out...there are four generous sized bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) - making it feel more like a mini bed and breakfast than a house. The House is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay- Kayaks, hammock, pool table, bocce court, indoor/outdoor sound system, and a BBQ. The pool overlooks the bay with the most beautiful sunset on the island. There is plenty of outdoor seating on the expansive patio that (again) overlooks the gorgeous bay and sunsets. We spent many nights laughing and talking on the outdoor patio furniture. We loved the location of the home...located in the "narrows" and only a short golf cart ride to Dunmore town dining...But still tucked away enough to have privacy. We had four couples in our party...but the house is also perfect for families. We would love to bring our kids back - as there are loads of "fun toys" for them to keep busy all day.

Perfect place for a play date with dear friends......

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Island is incomparable with regards to the perfect island getaway. Tranquil turquoise waters surround this laid back paradise of pastel colored houses, friendly locals, wonderful dining spots, and most of all, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This 3 mile stretch of soft pink sand, with its gentle surf and warm trade winds, will beckon you to just come and relax the day away, and when done, you get to go back to Gulememi Bluff!

The Bluff is welcoming, is tastefully decorated, with 4 beautiful bedroom suites, a large indoor kitchen and living room area, but even better is the outdoor area. The pool deck is huge, with lots of relaxing lounge chairs that flows easily from one area to the next, with an amazing westerly water view where we watched the most amazing sunsets with our friends. Add the bbq for the locally caught lobster and bacci ball court, or take out the kayaks for a run on the crystal clear waters.

The location of the house is really convenient but "tucked away" enough to make it very private. The home owners and housekeeper were so helpful with anything regarding the house or local information and hot spots.

We cant wait to come again.

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the island. Working with the owner was a dream and we felt like we were visiting friends instead of renting a house. The house is truly well located, beautifully furnished and very easy to share for a few couples or for a family. All of the key items you might want on vacation are right there for you to use - and the housekeeper is very helpful with any questions!

The only place I ever want to vacation is this Harbor Island house!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Harbor Island over ten times in the last 15 years. For major life events- birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, family holidays and romantic getaways Gumelemi Bluff has been where I want to spend time with loved ones. It is a treasure and a place I cherish. A beautiful home, decorated with ever DETAIL in mind for guests and luxury. The view over the ocean is dream like. The pool is perfect for kids or a private swim. The home has a bocci court which is a fan favorite for friends after cocktails or a good home cooked meal. Location of the house is tucked away as though you have the island to yourself but also is right next to the beach and all of the best restaurants. The home owners were gracious and had everything we needed, with all information about the island provided. My husband and I put aside money every holiday for our "Harbor Island" fund- always wanting to get back to that island for a Rum Punch and Lobster Quesadilla at Sip Sip! Can't wait to go back!

Island Estate Home, spectacular bay views, private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented Gumelemi Bluff for the second time. We have been going to Harbour Island for over 25 years and have stayed at various houses and all the upper end hotels, and I must say Gumelemi Bluff is our favorite home to rent. The house is located in the Narrows section of the island on the bay side, but close to town overlooking the flats of Harbour island. The thing that sets the house apart from others is the spectacular views and outdoor areas. The house has a nice pool with cabana and large deck with 360 degree views of the bay. Given the house is up on a bluff, the views are really spectacular. The interior of the home is comfortable, nothing fancy, but set up well with a master on one side and two separate rooms with baths on the other side. The cabana is a great place to put guests or older kids. A short golf cart ride to the beach and there are places to rents chairs, but it is nice to be able to come back to the bay side in the afternoon and watch the sun go down. I would recommend Gumelemi Bluff to anyone that is looking for a private, estate type home with complete privacy and wonderful outdoor living.
