Overview

About the property

A Historically Reconstructed 3 Bed / 3 Bath Home In The Heart Of Dunmore Town

As seen in the September 2015 Issue of Coastal Living Magazine!

Located in the heart of historic Dunmore Town and recently restored, Jewelbox is one of Harbour Island’s original homes. Long abandoned when we found it, the original structure now looks much as it did when when built in the 1700’s and embodies all the old world charm one hopes for in an island home.

Open, airy and extremely comfortable Jewelbox is a delightful home away from home.

Jewelbox is a three bedroom, three bath home with a dining porch, lounging porch and garden, two queen bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) and a twin bedroom (also with en suite bathroom). Down pillows, luxury linens, dining area for eight, wireless internet, cable, free long distance, AC throughout and a whole home stereo system. Daily housekeeping except for Sundays and holidays.

Why Trish Becker Chinitz and Richard Chinitz chose Harbour Island

Long abandoned and left to fall apart, Jewelbox is just an ice cubes throw from our first rental cottage, Chatterbox, and watching it fall apart was heartbreaking. One of the island's original homes and a wonderful example of Bahamian architecture, we decided to take on the task of bringing Jewelbox back from the brink. It was worth it as the house is lovely!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family, husband and two teenage boys, and I had a wonderful stay in Jewelbox. The house is truly lovely and well situated. Restaurants, grocery stores and boutiques are a short walk and the beach is a quick ride in a golf cart. The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable. I loved hearing the rustling of the palms and waking to the roosters crowing! Trish was a great host - attentive and very informative.

JEWELBOX is a hidden jewel of HI

  • 5 of 5

There is no doubt that Jewelbox is a hidden jewel on Harbour Island. 3 bedroom/3 bath in the heart of town. Walks away from a delicious bakery and the most ADORABLE boutique next door (dangerous if you're a shopaholic and LOVE embroidered dresses) not to mention they carry Trish Beckers beautiful jewelry. This place is the perfect family getaway for all ages. Sleep upstairs and send the kids to the cabana and in the downstairs bedroom or steal the cabana and have your own little bungalow and give the kids the house. Matouk linens, iphone plugs to jam to music, and beautiful decor. This house is a stunner and if I could have taken it home with me I would have. This place is equipped with everything you would think you would need for the Bahamas and more. Wifi was excellent. Plus a great cleaning service that came by daily! THANK YOU TRISH! xo

the JEWEL BOX

  • 5 of 5

We had a LOVELY stay at the Jewel Box! It is a very charming home with a very cool, well decorated Bahimian style. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay.

Added bonus, it is right next door to the cutest shop, the Blue Rooster and two down from the Piggly Wiggly!

Th owner, Trish Becker Chinitz was so lovely and provided a great list of things to do in Harbor Island.

We would definitely stay at Jewel Box again!
