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!

The Jewelbox was perfect! Beautifully decorated and appointed. Trish was an amazing hostess and her staff were wonderful. We brought our two young kiddos who had a blast. The House was spacious and located close to everything - groceries, shopping and a short jog to the beach. Would recommend this spot to anyone!
Perfect loyalist cottage located in the heart of Dunmore Town.
This loyalist cottage exudes charm, style and comfort. We have rented many houses on HI through the years, this one is our favorite. The love and care that went into the restoration is evident!
We had a remarkable experience at Jewelbox. Nika and Clint were wonderful, attentive and caring. Although there were a few problems with one of the showers, it was apparent that there was an effort to resolve it immediately. Giorga contacted us when we had a problem figuring out the cable TV.
The home was beautifully decorated in keeping with the island and the history of the cottage.
We also had an opportunity to meet Trish, who was working on a project in town. She was engaging and gave us additional ideas on places to go.
The week was relaxing, and we felt that we got a true feel for the island and its people, including the "wild" roosters who welcomed the day starting at 4 AM!
Perfect in every way!
Jewelbox was the perfect little getaway!! As a designer myself, I tend to be very picky about all of the little things. Imagine that!😂Jewelbox does not disappoint! The love that went into the restoration of this home is unparalleled. It is stylish, comfortable, perfectly located and well thought out. Everything right down to the linens was just perfect. The housekeeping was wonderful and the owners were so helpful in making sure that our first visit was well enjoyed. We will definitely be back!!
Loved the Jewelbox!
We've stayed at both the Chatterbox and the Jewelbox now and have loved both houses. Both are great locations in town, close to the grocery, the bakery, and other shopping. This house is gorgeously decorated and everything is thought of for the guests. Having the cleaning service once a day and nice linens is such a special touch for a rental house. We loved the dipping pool for coming back from the beach on a very hot day. Because of a storm in NY a few days before our flight out we had some trouble with our flights and got stuck in Nassau overnight on the way down. Trish could not have been more helpful and even sent recommendations for where to stay in Nassau. Thank you again Trish!!
Fabulous - Again!!
Not our first stay at one of Trish’s houses and definitely not our last! So great!!!
