After a quick boat ride to Harbour Island, we realized that the Dunmore Cottage is a short walk from the dock (and a quick golf cart ride into town!) The house is spacious and nicely decorated. I went with a group of friends and the only struggle we had was trying to figure out where to hang out...on the front porch with beautiful views of the harbor, in the back patio lounging on the sofas and grilling on the bbq, or even a small patio on the top floor. I highly recommend the location for family or a group of friends.

Dunmore Cottage is really a special place. This was my second time visiting and it was no less magical than the first. The fact that the house originally belonged to the governor only further contributes to the magic. Not only is the home beyond comfortable with multiple places to relax, but also the decor is very tasteful. The style is an interesting mix of modern and traditional Bahamian.
Besides the luxurious comfort and ambiance of the home, all your needs are anticipated. Lisa, the wonderful house manager, is beyond attentive and can help with any of your wants such as scheduling day trips or recommending a place to eat. The housekeeper, Anishka, is very friendly and always keeps everything spotless.
One of my favorite things about the house is the open back and courtyard. The landscaping is gorgeous and a definite motivator for grilling/ eating outside. Before dinner, I recommend enjoying some cocktails on the front porch as you watch the activity on the governor's dock and then catching the sunset from the widow's watch. The home is in a great location, close to all shops, restaurants and just parallel of the beautiful pink sand beaches.
Harbour Island is a place of beauty, but Dunmore Cottage really makes the vacation. It's a gorgeous home and I highly recommend experiencing a stay there.
