Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Still Point is a beautifully renovated historic cottage situated directly on the stunning bay of Harbour Island. The main house features two full bedrooms with two private baths. The secluded guest cottage behind the tranquil courtyard garden offers an additional complete suite including bedroom, private bath, and sitting area. The rooftop deck, unique to Still Point, is the perfect setting for evening cocktails while enjoying the spectacular sunset views over the entire island. One of the most photographed homes on the island (including Architectural Digest), Still Point is the ultimate island retreat, replete with modern amenities. Central air will cool you after a long day spent at the beach, and Wi-Fi makes it easy to keep in touch with those not lucky enough to be included in your vacation.

Numerous indoor and outdoor seating areas, including the walled-in garden, and two master bedrooms in two separate buildings make this the perfect retreat for two or three couples wanting to maintain private living arrangements.

The Unique Benefits at this House: An ideal day would be spent waking up to the smell of bougainvillea, strolling into town for pastries, heading to the beach for the afternoon, and coming back to the house for an evening of cocktails and views on the rooftop deck.

Why the Owner Chose Dunmore Town: Harbour Island is the perfect place to unwind. It has many opportunities for snorkeling, shopping, eating and long walks on the beach- basically, a great place to spend time with friends and loved ones. Still Point offers the ideal location to experience many of Harbour Island's offerings because of its proximity to town and the beach.

Please note that due to high demand during particular times of the year, notably during the holiday season, the rental rates of Still Point vary.

Sunset Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The front porch of this beautiful cottage was the perfect spot to drink coffee as the island came to life, and to experience the most perfect sunsets in the evening! People came from all over the island to this area in order to watch the magnificent colors of the sky each night....we enjoyed it from the porch.

Our group used the courtyard for happy hour before we went out for the evening, and as an outdoor living room. The landscaping gave us privacy and created a great island environment. The upper deck was another terrific place to see the sunset or to drink wine.

The master suite is located in the guest cottage and it is exquisite! The bathroom is updated and beautifully done. The main house was clean, beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed for our stay. It is a well done combination of the old (historic) and the new. We ate at the cottage several nights in order to experience the sunsets and the kitchen was well equipped.

The cottage is within walking distance of the most beautiful beaches that we have ever seen! There were also many places to eat, as well as a grocery store nearby.

Our group had a great experience in this adorable cottage and we plan to return next year!

Wonderful Property. Lovely house with added lovely courtyard and cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Can't imagine a better place on the planet to enjoy a sunset than on the front porch or deck on the cottage than Stillpoint - Briland!

The owners have no doubt created and maintained an absolute treasure.

I felt like I was living in a dream! Blue skies and turquoise water views out of every window!

  • 5 of 5

Still Point is elegant, fresh, bright, and well appointed ! Beautiful artwork, book shelves lined with best sellers and classics, puzzles, board games, gracious and inviting interiors!

Pretty color scheme inside ! I think it is Country French . Very picturesque!

Home owners clearly take great pride in decor and maintenance ! Coffee every morning on front porch watching sail boats breeze by!

Dinner at night in private garden illuminated by garden lights . Star gazing on upper deck. Main house is historic- over 200 years old !

Living in history! CHARMING !!

Guest house very spacious- like a 4 star hotel suite with walk in closet, updated bath, fresh linens ! Loved living in the village and feeling connected to the community!

And loved walking to village center to get provisions! A treat to slow down ...be out of the car and enjoy the gardens, sights and sounds of the island !

We rented a golf cart and scooted out to beach for long walks on the famous pink sands!

Favorite moments:

Sunset drinks at Ramora Sunset Grill with live music every Sunday nite!

Lunch at SipSip. Lunch and umbrella drinks at Coral Sands beach side restaurant. Can walk right up from beach ! Barefoot, sand and all!

Sunset outdoor dinner at Acquapazza including a walk over to the next door haunted house!

Fresh lobster salad at Queen Conch! Private dinner prepared by Portia and delivered to house at 7 pm- her specialty is grouper fingers and peas and rice! We did that 3 times!!! Princess street gallery for upscale gifts. Dilly dally cute shop with fun selection of island gifts. Coffee Roaster special pizza every Friday night! Pizza with grouper!!!

Blue Rooster boutique for island wear!

And best for last: Arthur's bakery for homemade herb bread and sticky buns!

Coming back next year and doubling my length of stay!!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights in this lovely historic cottage on Harbour Island. The house is very well accommodated with furnishings, kitchen supplies, and towels, etc for beach outings. We loved the location on the bay right in the center of all the activities of Dunmore town, the dock, etc, and being able to see the beautiful sunsets every night. Still Point is charming in it's decor, very simple and exactly how a beach house should be! The outdoor courtyard with gorgeous tropical foliage is very private and peaceful in the mornings for coffee and evenings for happy hour and dinner. Everything has been just perfect! If we are lucky enough to come back, we wouldn't stay any where else!

Our Second Year, Now Planning 2015!

  • 5 of 5

The first time I set foot in Dunmore Town, Harbour Island I was 10 years old. That was quite some time ago..

For those looking for an unspoiled Paradise, blessedly, the historic town and island with its glorious pink coral sand beaches, quaint homes and eclectic shops make for one of the few places on Earth that has changed little over time, and Still Point is one of Dunmore Town's harbor-front treasures. Outfitted with all of the modern necessities, and beautifully decorated in colorful Island-Chic, with comfortable vacation living uppermost in mind. The home is owned by the most gracious couple, who have made renting Still Point a vacationer's dream come true - Great communication, loads of helpful information and insider's tips on how to get the very best out of your hard-earned vacation time. My wife and I and another couple of great friends had the good fortune to enjoy Still Point for 10 days this past February, and we can't wait to come back next year!
