The Battery, Historic Harbour Side Home

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

The Battery is a true Bahamian Limestone Home located directly on the harbour side of the beautiful two mile island of Harbour Island. The house itself was built over 150 years ago and has lots of character and charm. The view during the daytime or while stargazing at night on the porch of the Battery or from the second floor look-out deck are spectacular and second to none.

The Battery is a two story house, on the main floor you will find an authentic Bahamas room, living/dinning room, two bedrooms with king beds and a shared bath. The kitchen is off to the side and contains everything needed to prepare a family meal for a full house. There is also laundry and a extra freezer available for you to use should you require extra space.

The second story of the Battery you will find two more bedrooms capable of sleeping 4 more people in two separate rooms with a shared shower. The upstairs bedrooms have extra mattresses available should you require this, please ask us for more details.

Being on the harbour side of the Island the property has a 20 foot dock with stairs for your use whether swimming in the harbour or docking your boat while staying at the Battery. The gazebo near the water is the perfect place to enjoy a cool beverage "Bahamian Style" and make memories to last a lifetime. After a relaxing swim on the pink sand beach or in the harbour take a cool shower in the outside shower.

Making the Battery your home away from home has many advantages such as being within walking distance to nearly everything on the island. We can provide you with a full list of activities on the island to ensure your trip is perfect.

AC bedrooms, Cable TV, Wi-Fi, and Phone on site.

About Anne, Danny, Elizabeth, Lester

The Battery has been in the Albury family for a very long time. Anne, Danny, Elizabeth and Lester are the four siblings that currently take care of the home. We hope you will enjoy the Battery and getting away from the daily grind like we do.

Anne, Danny, Elizabeth, Lester purchased this house in 1865

Why Anne, Danny, Elizabeth, Lester chose Dunmore Town

Find seclusion away from the hustle and bustle of island life, as well as a real down-home feeling in a family property that we all love. Dr. Paul Albury, dentist, love of life, family, and history! was born in the house in 1922.

What makes this house unique

Looking out over the entire harbour is such a delight, and the sunset is phenomenal! Each family member must have hundreds of photographs of this exact moment. Enjoy your evening cocktails and dinner out on the upper or lower deck to take full advantage of it. Or if you're feeling more adventurous, you can also take in the views during your evening swim down at the dock.
