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!

Truly a jewelbox, on one of the most lovely islands in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

My mom, cousins and I had a wonderful stay at the Jewelbox. The property was just as lovely as presented online, designed as a sanctuary in the center of the friendly town of Dunmore. Every detail in the home shows thought and careful consideration and there is beauty wherever you look. The house includes two phone lines for free calls to the Bahamas and the US., wireless internet, a nespresso with frother and fully stocked kitchen with countertop space for cooking. There is a grocery store and a deli right next to the property, a breakfast bakery a block away and one can either walk or, if carrying beach chairs and additional beach supplies, take a golf cart to the world famous pink sand beach. Trish was responsive and very helpful with advice on things to do, who to contact for golf cart rental, even where to go for a cup of coffee in the am. We highly recommend this property and the dedication and customer care of the owner, Trish.

Full of charm and very tasteful decor

Jewelbox is in the center of Dunmore town which has its advantages. It is beautifully appointed and very comfortable.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a beautiful week in Harbour Island and Jewelbox. The house is charming and gorgeous. My wife's sister from France met us and the separate courtyard bedroom was perfect for her and gave nice privacy for both of us. The furnishings and fixtures are to droll over and you can tell Trish gave a lot of thought to every item chosen. The house is really like new but oozing with charm and everything worked perfectly which is a real bonus when on vacation. Loved the indoor/outdoor sound system and dining on the covered patio.

We had a golf cart but because the house is located in town you can easily walk to everything including the beach.

Beach chairs and towels are easily at hand so that was a nice touch along with a few beach toys.

Thank you again Trish for having us at your little Jewel!!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful holiday at the Jewelbox. It really is a gem of a house and even more charming in person. Great location on the island, too. Our family so enjoyed relaxing in a lovely 'home away from home' rather than staying in a hotel. We had everything we needed except maybe more time! Nice to find a special place that you want to come back to. Also, Trish is a fantastic and responsive host. Her other properties look pretty amazing too...
