This high-end luxury home recently refurbished with separate guest cottage can be booked either as a 3-bed/3-bath (for up to 6 people) or 5-bed/5-bath rental (for parties of 10). The price quoted here is for booking the main house only in low season where the rental starts at $1,000/night for the house only. If your party is more than 6 please ask for an updated quotation to include the guest cottage. The additional rental ranges between $400/ night for low season up to $600/night for high season. We have a single rate only for Xmas/New Year. The guest cottage is never rented out separately. We do try to be flexible on our minimum stay settings so it is ALWAYS worth asking if we can accommodate.
Charter a course in the warm turquoise ocean waters to your own secure dock slip with direct private access to your property just 100' from the waters edge. You will find the house comes equipped with AC, reverse osmosis water, generator, cable, wi-fi, maid service, and many other amenities. We also have a safe in every room. For coffee lovers we have the latest espresso coffee machine.
If it is your first time visiting Harbour Island please ask for a copy of our Little Gems about Harbour Island booklet which we can email to you in .pdf format. It has all sorts of useful snippets of information which can help with your holiday planning.
The open plan arrangement with high spec kitchen, dining and sitting areas makes for a very, very social space. Beautiful outdoor spaces all add to the feeling of staying in a beautiful comfortable home with a real family feel about it. Built in 2007 the 10’ x 40’ windows provide a unique panoramic view over the bayside from every view point and the serpentine wrap-around pool provides a cool relief from the heat of the beach and an ideal retreat to watch some of the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see.
Positioned almost at the water's edge, the property has its own private dock available to all our guests. Just a 3-minute walk up and over the sand dunes behind and you can be on the pink sands beach. Truly the best of both worlds ...
Definitely worth high-lighting 2 must-haves!
- Emergency power generator (power interruptions can be frequent)
- Reverse Osmosis water purification (the town water pressure can sometimes be incredibly low. The other benefit is that RO water can be drunk safely)
Surprisingly, lots of rental homes on the Island don’t have either. The house and guest cottage also comes with high-speed WiFi, Cable TV and air-conditioning. For families with young children we have a cot and high chair.
The White House is an exceptional rental property and very popular, especially with families with children.

Why Lawrence chose Dunmore Town
Described as one of the most desirable places on earth to call home, Harbour Island has long been regarded as one of the world's foremost resort destinations.
Famous for its 3-mile pink sandy beach, Briland as the locals call it, has been declared 'quite possibly the finest beach in the world' Renowned for its snorkelling, deep sea and bone fishing and scuba diving the warm clear turquoise ocean waters are a haven for the travel elite with legendary catches of tuna, marlin and wahoo.

There are several exceptional boutiques, not just for clothes but objets d'art and local handicrafts and paintings.

We had visited Harbour Island years ago, and never forgot it. Last summer, we rented this house for a week, with myself, my husband, and (now) two young adult sons. The house is beautiful, and convenient to a marina and Dunmore Town. Golf carts are available for rental a short walk away. The house is waterfront and has a dock, as well as a pool right off the porch. My younger son, who is autistic, is a diver and went scuba diving with a local outfit, and also snorkeled right off the property. He loved it, and saw plenty of sea life. People were so kind to him. The house had every amenity we could want. I have limited mobility (I use a walker/crutch due to an injury), and it was not a problem, even though the aforementioned son commandeered the downstairs bedroom! We did plenty of cooking at home, and were pleased to discover that some of our favorite restaurants and shops are still around. The owners/management of this property are helpful and friendly, as are the staff who care for the house and property. And the folks on Harbour Island are delightful, especially the water taxi people who kindly helped me on and off the boat to/from North Eleuthera. I wholeheartedly recommend the White House, and would return in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful stay at The White House in Harbour Island. The owner, property manager and staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The accommodations were even better than the pictures online. This is a great location central to many of the restaurants, bars and recreational activities. We loved watching the sunsets from the upstairs balcony and having our own pool and dock was a bonus. We would definitely rent this place again as it worked well for our family of six. A great experience all around!

Everything about this house was amazing. We were going to stay in 3 hotel rooms and decided that this was the better route for our family, and I'm so glad we did. It was nice for us to all stay together and the house was amazing. The water taxi was able to drop us off right at the dock for the house and then it was just a few quick steps up to paradise, through a spectacular tunnel/walkway covered in beautiful flowers. The outdoor area had a nice pool, super comfortable deck chairs and an outdoor dining area with a bar-b-que. It was all very well kept and offered great views of the harbour. Inside the house was immaculate and very spacious. Each room was equipped with a comfortable King size bed, cozy sheets and an ensuite bathroom. There was a nice deck off the master bedroom, again, with beautiful views of the harbour. Anita, the property manager, was very quick to get back to us with any questions and the housekeeper (Shaleese - sp?) was very helpful - she was great at helping us find some fresh fish to buy to cook for dinner. We didn't realize that we also had daily housekeeping that was included with our stay. The guesthouse, with two separate bedrooms with ensuites, was just out the back and very handy. The only issue with the guesthouse was that the wifi didn't work out there and it wasn't really preferrable for kids. We love visiting Harbour Island and we can't wait for our next visit. We will definitely be booking this place again.

Thank you for taking time to write a Review for us Maureen. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the house. You should be able to get wifi in the Guest Cottage so I will ask Shabba to check that out.
We shall look forward to welcoming you on a return visit.
The White House is a literal paradise in paradise. The pool wasn't heated but it was warm enough after sitting in the sun for 5 minutes even in February. The beds and couches were super comfy and the kitchen had all the amenities for cooking a gourmet meal. We were able to buy fresh fish and lobster at the dock one night and had a scrumptious dinner in the comfort of the home when we wanted to take a night off from the tremendous restaurants "downtown." The dock is just at the bottom of a small breeeway, steps from the back yard pool and the views from the top of the veranda at sunset were spectacular. The beach is a short stroll to the other side of the island and is a quick and easy walk. Shabba the caretaker was there to greet us and tend to any questions we had at almost a moments notice and Shalese the housekeeper was excellent at being barely noticeable if we happened to be in the home when she was there housekeeping. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable and when we return to Briland again (which we most certainly will) we will strongly consider the White House again @ Sunset Harbor.

We have stayed at many homes throughout tge various Bahamas and Carribean but this home, its layout, viees, access to dining, town and pink sands besches cannot be beat! The house staff is beyond amazing. We ferried directly to the dock in front of the house to have Shabba, the caretaker at the property, to meet us and help us with our bags . Shalese was magnificent, she will come during the week to clean.
The house has an incredible layout with a standing pool and hot tub and beautiful palm trees out front and a huge porch with tons of outdoor seating and chaise lounges ! The inside ground level is spacious and open with a huge island kitchen which made it a blast for our group of eight ! There’s also a detached guesthouse for large parties ... I Health is from my Apple Watch with everything you need including a washer and dryer. The grounds for Wonderful every single day and our favorite was the outdoor house cat named Bagel who we fell in love with!
This home the view location and staff made our trip the best trip ever !! We would recommend this home to anyone...
