With just 11 rooms and cottages, Bahama House feels more like an intimate beachside retreat, complete with a freshwater swimming pool and handcrafted sunken tiki bar. It's within close proximity to Harbour Island’s pink sand beaches and pastel-painted houses. The indoor-outdoor lounge with its library and tropical gardens emit a relaxing atmosphere among the British-colonial buildings which date back to the late 17th-century.
The property is centrally nestled in Dunmore Town, a prime sport for exploring Harbour Island’s fine-dining Bahamian restaurants and lively nightlife, with the slender beaches of the east coast a mere 10-minute stroll away.

Photos of Bahama House
With just a few rooms and cottages within this classically Bahamian styled British-colonial property, we love its intimacy and history.
The 11 bedrooms and suites in the pale pink plantation-style building are designed in classic Bahamian decor, with an eclectic mix of wicker furniture and raffia-framed mirrors. Room categories range from queen bedrooms through to cottages with semi-private terraces. With a relaxed aesthetic, the rooms come fully equipped with console-controlled temperature, lighting and music, en suite bathrooms, TV and Wi-Fi.
On the east coast of the slender Harbour Isle in central Dunmore Town, Bahama House boasts a waterfront location and marina views. As one of over 700 islands that make up the Out Islands Archipelago, getting to the island from the mainland’s North Eleuthera Airport involves a 20-minute land and sea transfer. Being such a slim island, the beach is a short 10-minute walk from the hotel, with notably blushed toned sands and opal waters.
Food and drink
An extensive continental breakfast featuring tropical fruits and smoothies, pastries, eggs and à la carte options is served on the open-air terrace, however there is no formal restaurant for lunch or evening meals. Instead, a private chef is available for French-Bahamian tasting menus, fish banquets and barbecues, or the local restaurants are known for their fine Bahamian dining and only a short walk away. Alternatively, there are two hotel bars where rum is the star of the show: the old-school Rum Bar and the open-air Tiki Bar.
The two-bedroom cottages are ideal for families, given their seclusion and space. Overall, Bahama House is a stay best suited for older children who can confidently and comfortably use the water sports equipment.
Facilities and activities
Within the grounds of the pastel-pink British-colonial building with bright white shutters is a freshwater pool and tropical gardens, along with the house tiki bar. Despite not having direct access to a beach, it's a short journey on a golf buggy to Pink Sands Beach, where sun loungers and a selection of refreshments on ice await. Local excursions are possible and arranged direct with the experienced hotel staff, such as snorkeling, fishing or exploring Dunmore’s pastel villas and heritage features.
