THE VILLA

Harbour Island has always been a bit of a Caribbean insider’s secret. Pink sand beaches, pastel-painted houses draped with colorful bougainvillea, turquoise waters and distinct cultural heritage cast a spell on all who visit. With just 11 rooms, Bahama House feels more like a stylish friend’s beach retreat. A freshwater swimming pool and handcrafted tiki bar make it hard to leave. Luckily, guests don’t have to go far to experience local culture. Located in the heart of Dunmore Town, popular restaurants and live music spots, are just minutes away. While the island is known for its laid back pace, Eleven’s guides know how to deliver a dose of adventure. Scuba dive or snorkel, cliff jump into a sapphire blue hole, or catch your own dinner on a deep sea fishing excursion. Property buyouts include a 35-foot Scorpion RIB Boat and captain, making it easy to explore neighboring islands. No matter how you choose to spend your day, it will always end in true island-style as you watch the sunset with a Goombay Smash cocktail in hand.

Guest rooms are old-world yet elegantly modern, decorated in chic plantation style with vintage rattan furniture, four-poster beds, grass cloth wallpaper, and bespoke artwork. Guests also have the added treat of air-conditioning.

A New Orleans-style central courtyard features a pool, sunken handcrafted tiki bar, terraces and hidden alcoves shaded by tall palm trees. Inside, common areas are decorated with a mix of Bahamian, Caribbean, and Palm Beach heritage pieces and vintage rattan furniture sourced from Paul Aronson’s private bamboo and rattan collection. A rum bar, a staple of any proper Caribbean retreat, is stocked with nearly 40 aged rums.

Breakfast is included for guests and our Bahamian chef’s lobster and avocado eggs Benedict are worth waking up for. Our chef can also arrange in-house dinners, tailored box lunches and gourmet picnics that might include fresh-caught lobster, barbecue pulled pork sliders, and a Yeti cooler of local beers and rosé. If you feel like exploring Harbour Island, our staff can direct you to innovative restaurants and humble street shacks hawking local staples like conch fritters.
