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

"Location was perfect. The cottage is a short walk from the ferry and Trish provided lots of guidance on dining and activities. Get coffee at the coffee roasters down the street and rent a boat from Duke.”

The bedrooms were all adorable with their own character. The property was well maintained and the house is perfectly located on the island. I can’t say enough great things!

A great week at the Chatterbox!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay at the Chatterbox was. We stayed a week with close friends at the Chatterbox and from day one, Trish was available within minutes to answer any questions we had.

The house was equipped with the essentials needed for cooking. The grill, beach towels, chairs and yeti cooler were well used throughout our stay. Having access to multiple living and outdoor areas was a huge benefit to this house, allowing people to spread out and have some alone time when needed.

The location may be busy for some, as we learned the Pigly Wigly is THE place to be during the day. We took advantage of this and enjoyed our downtime rocking on the front porch watching the daily happenings of the town go by with a cocktail in hand. It just dawned on me that this may be why its called the Chatterbox! By dinner time it was much quieter, and sleeping with the windows open was never a noise issue aside from the occasional golf cart zooming by.

The location of Chatterbox is an easy 10 minute walk or very quick golf cart ride to the beach. The grocery store, delis, bakeries, restaurants and shops are all a short stroll away.

The beds in the rooms were on the firmer side and some of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on in a hotel/rental. The linens and toiletries offered were high quality as well.

Neka the housekeeper was so kind and made sure all of our needs were met while we were there. This included her running over to check the propane for the grill when we thought it was running low. We weren't aware of how salty the town water was so we were fairly dependent on getting large 5 gallon jugs for drinking/cooking. They can be found behind arthurs deli at the "water guy" hut for 6 bucks. Much easier than buying single gallons.

The only improvements I can think of for this home are a few more cooking utensils, having access to the laundry (it is locked), and a better functioning AC in the downstairs bedroom (Trish was working on the repair while we were there). The wifi can also be a little spotty throughout the house if you plan on doing work upstairs or in the backyard.

Overall, we had such a great time at the Chatterbox and our first time on the island. To help all those visiting, Dunmore deli for a cheap delicious lunch, Arthurs for breakfast sandwiches, Romora bay for happy hour, and a daily hello to our favorite town dog "Mama." She hangs out in front of the dilly dally and is the sweetest

Not only is Chatterbox in the perfect location- close to both restaurants, shops, and the beach, but it's the most well appointed home we've ever stayed in. Trish thought of everything! From the monogrammed towels and yeti cooler we took on the boat, to the beach chairs and sun hats we used every day. Fantastic stay!

Harbour Island perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Chatterbox is such a fantastic location. Very comfortable, great charm and style. Trish the owner is amazing and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Right opposite Pigly Wigly so very easy to buy all your food and drinks and perfect to see the town buzzing past you. The beds were also v comfortable and lots of space to enjoy a relaxing holiday, yet still in the heart of the action.

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!
