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 restored in 2013, 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. A perfectly sized 8' x 9' pool was installed in the Fall of 2017. Great for relaxing in after a day at the beach.

Jewelbox is a three bedroom, three bath home with a dining porch, lounging porch, pool and small 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 Dunmore Town

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

“We can not say enough great things about our stay at the Jewel Box on Harbour Island. The house is conveniently located on the island to shops, restaurants, and beaches. Jewel Box is well appointed with all the comforts of home. Trish and her staff were very responsive to all our needs. Looking forward to our next vacation to the island and the Jewel Box.”

Great House, cute and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Jewelbox was a great house, we had 3 couples that stayed here for the July 4th long weekend and we had a great time. The house is in the heart of Harbour Island, was close to the store, had a great kitchen and stereo to cook a meal and entertain a little. Hopefully we get a chance to do it again soon!
