Featured on House Hunters International!

Chatterbox is located in the heart of Dunmore Town. Built in the late 1800's by the island's first contractor, it was fully renovated in 2012, making it a historic house with modern amenities. It is a three bedroom (two bedrooms with queen size beds, one bedroom with two double beds), two bath home with wood floors, comfortable furniture, a cook's kitchen and lots of charm. A second floor patio and widow's walk offer stunning sunset views. A covered terrace on the first floor for entertaining or just relaxing as well as a porch swing on the front patio to enjoy the island breeze.

Literally steps away from the grocery store, bakery and deli, nothing is out of reach. The pink sand beach is a short walk away and golf carts are available for hire for exploring the island. Bone fishing, deep sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling are all easily accessible services! The services of a housekeeper are included every day except Sundays and holidays.

Wi-fi, cable tv, whole home stereo system, a safe, security cameras and free long distance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is a gem. Trish really has an eye for details, and the interior is so beautifully done, it was a pleasure no matter where you looked. Eartha, the housekeeper, was extremely serviceminded and kind. The house is perfectly situated on the island with a great mix of locals, cool shops and great food places.

Chic and Comfortable Home in the Heart of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors to Harbour Island and Chatterbox has been our favorite! The location is so walkable to the beach, harbour, Arthur's bakery, Piggly Wiggly, Blue Rooster and Valentines, to name a few. The house is comfortable, stylishly decorated and well-maintained. The rooftop deck is a plus with stunning views. We loved the housekeeper, Nika, as she was so accommodating and responsive when we had any questions. For a true Harbour Island experience, Chatterbox is your house!

Fun Island, Awesome Location, Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from Harbour Island for a wedding, I can say without a doubt that we had the best accommodations of the entire group. Our group of 3 couples eschewed the expensive hotels and rented Chatterbox for 4 nights and could not have been happier. It is a short 2-3 block walk from the main ferry dock, so you do not even need to have a cart immediately upon arrival (I'd recommend taking a quick left on Bay Street for a stop to see The Conch King for his fresh conch salad before doing anything else!) There is a grocery store and very well stocked beer/liquor/wine store directly across the street.

Everything is appointed perfectly in the house; the bedrooms are large, bathrooms are nice, there are several seating/hang-out areas both inside and outside, and even a rooftop deck with a view of the setting sun.

Trish thought of everything; guests need to bring very little in terms of supplies needed for a beach vacation. It is also very nice that unlike many VRBO that I have stayed in previously there is daily housekeeping. The housekeepers were very friendly and would ask what time to come the next day depending on our schedules. Trish is also extremely responsive to any questions you have, prior to and during the trip.

Overall, there is nothing but positive things to say about the house. I hope to be back to the island someday, and if I am it will certainly involve a stay at Chatterbox!

Best kept secret in Harbour Island!!

  • 5 of 5

IF you are visiting Harbour Island and need a charming yet updated and wonderful home to stay in the heart of town, look no further... Chatterbox is THE BEST SPOT. Family & child friendly this home offers all the charm and authenticity of Briland while combining modern amenities like air conditioning, updated kitchen, outdoor dining, outdoor shower, and more. Icing on the cake is beach chairs, beach toys and beach towels!!! The bed linens and towels are five star... I couldn't rave more about them!

My husband booked this as a surprise trip for my 40th birthday and we are long time visitors of the island (3rd generation)... Keep in mind we have a deep understanding of what's available to rent and what is worth it. There is not other place I would have rather have stayed than Chatterbox. It's the perfect combination of island charm meets modern needs. We brought our 3 year old child and felt completely comfortable having her there. The house has a 1 bedroom bath on the first floor and 2 bedroom 1 bath upstairs...think old cape house meets chic island vibe. We felt very comfortable and safe in this home with our family.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. If you want to be in town this location is THE BEST. Located right next to Piggly Wiggly for grocery needs and right down the block from the Deli and Beverage store... need I say more? Okay... Blue Rooster (fabulous island clothing shop is right across the street as well). Night time needs? The popular and wonderful Daddy D's is also within walking distance.

While the location is key one might wonder about privacy at the home. The well hidden gem has high fences, gates that can be locked and shutters...privacy is no problem. Bonus? Yup... it has a 3rd floor outdoor deck that affords beautiful views of the bay and sunsets. Worth it in spades.

Air conditioning and wifi worked seamlessly....which, having been visiting the island my whole life, I can't say that is the case for all homes.

The first floor is roomy and offers a great outdoor patio comfortable to serve dinner on as well (we made two in home meals that were easily prepared in the well stocked kitchen...i.e. pots, pans and grill all in great supply). Wouldn't be a complete review without mentioning the wonderful front porch and swing that bring you back to simpler times in life...and remind you of the very reason you come to forget and relax.

This home is the perfect Harbour Island experience and home away from home. All you need to pack is your bikini, this home has it all! Great location with 5 star accommodations. This is my 3rd stay at Chatterbox and it will not be my last! The nights spent in this home have been the most restful nights, and most relaxing vacations I've experienced to date. I look forward to visiting this beautiful island over and over again, and staying at one of Trish Becker's original island retreats. I know it won't disappoint!

Chatterbox was one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed. From the attention to detail in the design, comfortable beds, cleanliness and location, we had nothing to complain about. It doesn't feel like a typical rental home, it feels like you are a guest at someones lovely home in the bahamas and extremely comfortable. Thank you Trish for creating such a beautiful place for us to visit. We hope to come back someday!

Chatterbox is fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Chatterbox for a week and I absolutely enjoyed everything about this place!! Accommodations and services are top notch...Great attention to detail in the home and very comfortable (beds, couches, private sitting areas, outdoor seating). Kitchen is fully stocked and roomy. Lots of utensils and cooking equipment for the nights you want to eat in and one of the main markets, a liquor store and a deli are all right across the street! Easy!! Also, there are beach chairs and towels available for your need to rent them at the beach..they are great and easy to transport on the back of your cart! Additionally, daily maid service was fantastic and there is a washer and dryer at the home which was a huge plus!

Location was fantastic. The central location of this home made it really easy to get to the beach (2 mins in cart, 5 min walk) or down to Bay street where some of the nicer restaurants and marina activities are. Walking or carting...this place is very close to everything.

I highly recommend Chatterbox to anyone!! Totally reasonable pricing (a total bargain if you share with your friends), a beautiful home, top notch service and a fantastic location. Hard to beat this amazing place!
