The newly renovated Crown Affair is on the prettiest street in the heart of historic Dunmore Town. This architect-designed 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom retreat is arranged around a large private courtyard with steps leading to an upper entertaining level that has expansive harbor views. Rates quoted here are for 3 bedroom stay. Please contact us for 4 bedroom rates.
Crown Street is one of the most photographed and quiet lanes on Harbour Island: it is beautiful, charming and home to this special property. The architect-owner took a modern approach to the traditional Bahamian aesthetic: creating a world apart. The name of the house and its design are inspired by the street name and one of the owner’s favorite films, The Thomas Crown Affair. You’ll find fun references to this classic movie throughout the home, in addition to a collection of local contemporary art and many other unique touches.
Crown Affair comprises two structures. The bigger of the two includes a spacious entry hall, large living room with coffered ceiling, three tasteful bedrooms (1-king and 2-queens) and three modern bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have adjoining private porches for secluded moments. The adjacent garden building contains a new, fully-equipped kitchen, interior dining room with over-scaled rope chandelier and an additional dramatic master king suite with tub and shower and its own dedicated sitting area and outdoor porch. All interior spaces are climate-controlled and provided with wireless internet and Sonos sound systems. Both structures open onto an enclosed tropical garden with multiple seating options and an outdoor grilling area. An exterior stair leads to a covered sitting area with bar and outdoor dining providing wide views of the surrounding village, marinas and harbor. The property can be rented as a 3-bedroom or 4-bedroom at different rates.
It's all easy from here. Take time to explore the island with its boutique shops, historical architecture and of course its world-famous beach, all within a stroll of the home. Return for sunset cocktails under the softly-lit rooftop pavilion before dinner. Prepare meals in the well-appointed kitchen or use the charcoal grill to try the fresh local seafood and 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. Multiple breakfast options, coffee and fresh conch stands are a walk away. At the house there are many places to relax: head to the upper level sundeck, outdoor dining and covered lounge for ocean breezes, relax in your own spacious garden, while away time on the shaded porches, or just enjoy the air-conditioned cool of the chic and comfortable interiors.
Other amenities include daily housekeeping and garden maintenance, off-road parking for your golf cart, an outdoor shower, a footbath, beach chairs and beach towels. Kayaks are also an option.
Escape to Crown Affair and experience the ease of island living in a home that places you in the center of a lovely, historic village with all the quiet and modern convenience that you expect.

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.

Personal, private, proximate, and PERFECT!
Crown Affair was perfect. The multiple outdoor spaces let us sunbathe, read a book, or view the harbor and amazing sunsets. The interiors were stylish, sophisticated, and very comfortable, starting with bedrooms that felt like a luxury hotel, each with its own beautiful bathroom, and three of them with private patios. Everything was kept immaculately by a housekeeper who came daily and seemed to know every nook of the house and every need of ours.
As a cook, I found the kitchen well thought out and easy to use, with every utensil I needed for the many meals we ate there. What I liked most about Crown Affair was the space and location. The space felt personal, like the house I would want to own if I was lucky enough to own a house in Harbour Island. It gave privacy, but provided our group plenty of spots to relax together; I especially loved the two roof decks, which were retreats during the day and communal hangouts in the evening; the panoramic views from both decks drew us up to watch sunsets over the harbor and to eat dinner most nights.
Crown Affair was also convenient. It was a 30 second walk from the harbor and two great grocery stores, a 1 minute walk from the taxi, and a 2 minute walk from the best restaurants in Dunmore Town, with most of the island's nicest shops in between.
I have only recently been introduced to Harbour Island, but plan to return often. Crown Affair is where I will stay on every visit.
Amazing house, location and owners!
This was our families first trip to HI. Can’t say enough great things about Crown Affair! The owners did a fabulous job on the house . They we’re always available to answer any questions and so accomadating.
The bedrooms are very nice and the rooftop decks are amazing for morning coffee and sunset.
Rosena and Tony came by daily to check on us and take care of the property.
Crown Affair is on a charming street close to everything in town. If you are looking for a new, clean, bright, happy house in a great location with the best owners this is the house for you!
We loved our stay and will absolutely come back.
Stunning Home and Amazing Location
We have visited Harbour Island a number of times. Without comparison, Crown Affair is by far the most stunningly styled and well appointment home of all the places we've stayed. The home has this wonderful exclusive and secluded feel while also being in the heart of historic Dunmore Town. The water and sunset views from the numerous rooftop sitting and dining areas are breathtaking.
This is just a very special home on a very special island. I would highly recommend Crown Affair to anyone who is looking for an amazing Harbour Island experience.
The most Beautiful/Lovely Place for a great price!
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!
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!!
