Overview

Harbour Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Featured on House Hunters International!

Built in the late 1800's by the island's first contractor, he named the home 'Chatterbox' for his wife. Whether or not she appreciated the honour is not known, but the care and detail that went into construction is obvious.

Located in the heart of Dunmore Town, Chatterbox 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.

A wonderfully comfortable and charming home in the heart of Harbour Island

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be able to rent Chatterbox for our recent "short" vacation in Harbour Island and it was everything we hoped it to be. The home was clean, well decorated, well outfitted and very comfortable. Our information about getting there and getting in were all taken care of and seamless. The home exudes charm from the mix of "old" Harbour Island antiques, plush linens, photos, sun chaises, quaint seating areas, rattan and wicker furniture and accessories, modern appliances and very comfortable beds....The air conditioning worked but you could also choose to open up the doors and windows and take in the island breezes. Daily cleaning service is included and grocery shopping is conveniently located across the street. The owner is readily available by email or telephone to answer any questions or enquiries and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.....Highly recommend Chatterbox as a place to stay when visiting Harbour Island..

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Chatterbox for our honeymoon and it was fabulous! Trish has taken such care in decorating her adorable home but also keeping it functional and comfortable. The location is absolutely wonderful as it's walking distance to shopping and groceries as well as the harbour. Part of the fun is enjoying golf carts on the island- just a quick drive to the beautiful beaches! We can't wait to return and will definitely stay at Chatterbox. Wine on the deck and dinners on the back porch can't be beat and working with Trish is a pleasure. Thanks for everything, cheers!

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Chatterbox has it all! It seems to have anticipated your every thought. I like to get up slowly on vacation, and so when I found myself having my morning coffee outside in the beautiful shaded terrace, I thought - perfect quiet spot! Or coming back from the beach and wanted to rinse off and thought "I'd love an outdoor shower" - perfect there it was! Or getting ready to go out for the night and you think I'd love some music - perfect, it's all wired in throughout the house! There is much more to Chatterbox - the location, beautiful interior design, brand new everything, views from widow's walk - to name a few - but I particularly appreciated the way that all the details of a perfect stay were anticipated, designed into the house and placed at your fingertips!

Great Location, Charming/ Updated Home!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start off with this... Sometimes you see pictures of homes especially in HI that look "better" than the house really is. I think its happened to me 2 or 3 times now down there (that I have been fooled by pics). Chatterbox is the opposite, the pictures don't do the justice for how lovely and charming this home really is. Its been recently renovated with all the modern appliances, AC units etc you would except on a vacation but still holding the originality. Its been professionally decorated with just enough Bahamian love! The Owner is great and is very easy to get a hold of if you need something (which we didn't). I would highly recommend Chatterbox and we will be back!
