About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Imagine your arrival on Harbour Island. Only 3 minutes walk - or less by golf cart - is the the prettiest street in the heart of historic Dunmore Town. Crown Street is one of the most photographed yet largely traffic-free lanes in the Bahamas: it is beautiful, quaint, charming AND home to CROWN AFFAIR, a 4-bedroom, 3-bath retreat. It's all easy from here. Multiple breakfast options, fine dining and shopping are a stroll away. Work on your tan as you lounge on the sun deck with wide harbor views, relax in your own spacious sub-tropical garden, while away time on the shaded porch or enjoy the air-conditioned cool of the comfortable interior. Take time to explore the island - the world famous beach calling - and then return to sunset cocktails under the softly-lit rooftop pagoda before dinner. CROWN AFFAIR provides updated and spacious air-conditioned dining, living and sleeping areas in the main house, where you will find tasteful furnishings, cable TV's, a Sonos sound system, wireless internet, Vonage phone connection and a safe for your convenience and security. If you choose, you and your friends can prepare meals in the fully-equipped kitchen or use the charcoal grill to try the wonderful fresh local seafood or the fresh meats available on the island. The house offers choices to sit at a large family dining table inside or to enjoy a candle-lit evening outdoors. Dinner out is easy: Crown Affair is just steps away from several world-class restaurants.

The bedroom accommodations are large and air-conditioned with luxury-hotel standard bedding, linens and towels. The king-bed garden suite provides additional privacy in its own guest house slightly removed from the main house. Inside the main house, the Master has a dramatic 4-poster king-sized bed with an adjacent bathroom. The other two bedrooms have queen-sized beds. One has a 4-poster bed and an ensuite bathroom and the other shares the Master bathroom. The house comes with daily housekeeping and garden maintenance services.

Escape to CROWN AFFAIR and experience the ease of island living in a home that places you in the center of a beautiful, historic village with all the quiet and modern convenience that you desire. Please visit our website or, click the weblink below for additional information and photos.

About Reid

We are a married couple living in Manhattan. Reid is an architect and Martin is in finance.

Reid purchased this house in 2015

Why Reid chose Dunmore Town

CROWN AFFAIR provides everything that we were looking for as we searched for our beach escape. Harbour Island itself is a sophisticated place of great beauty yet has a sense of adventure as it thankfully has few of the distractions that attract larger crowds. We hope that our home reflects those qualities.

What makes this house unique

We have all the advantages of being in the village with none of the drawbacks. The noisiest moment is dawn when the roosters crow and the busiest time of day is when the neighbor's cat hops over the fence. We have 4 completely different environments on property and we use them all: the roof deck with sunset and harbor views; the secluded garden; the shady porch and the cool interior.

The most Beautiful/Lovely Place for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

Having vacationed in the Bahamas a number of times, I have found that Rainbow's End on the beautiful island of Harbour Island cannot be beat! The Island is so unique and this house is the perfect place to call home for a number of different reasons. The guest/pool house has a terrace built a-top that provides the PERFECT place to have breakfast/morning coffee- it overlooks the Harbour side of the Island and is framed with the beautiful and lush flowers all around. The bedrooms are all very spacious, well decorated, plenty of storage for luggage and clothing. The kitchen/dining area are FULLY stocked with several sets of utensils, serving platters, linens, candles, decorations, etc. The owner has done a MAGNIFICENT job of making sure nothing is overlooked to ensure the most comfortable vacation stay for all. The owners have graciously provided travelers with a daily maid service, a full laundry room, and even noted contact information for local Island attractions. They have spared no details! :) The house's location is prime: The Harbour-side beach, shops, restaurants, piggly-wiggly (local grocery store), and a good game of Dominos are all only a short walk away. We recommend this rental for ANYONE/EVERYONE. Thank you, Rainbows End for making our magical vacation on Harbour Island complete.

Convenient and beautiful enough for backyard wedding!

  • 5 of 5

Rainbows end sits on a beautiful street off the main path yet very convenient to everything!! We love the upper deck for evening sunsets! This house is a must! Thank you for letting us stay and share your home. Clean, cozy and what more to ask for on this one! Also the landscaping is so nicely done that one could even use the backyard and upper deck for a wedding!!

Thank you again!!
