Tree House is one of the most charming properties in picturesque Dunmore Town on Harbour Island, a tiny jewel lying off the north end of Eleuthera. This delightful compound has two clapboard houses with pale blue shutters and is located on quiet Hill Street, which ends with the famous steps leading down to Bay Street. Aptly named, Tree House sits high above the treetops. Its hillside position is ideal and offers cooling breezes, views to the harbor and spectacular sunsets.

One enters Tree House through a courtyard full of tropical flowering plants. Steps lead down to a classic Bahamian guest house on the left and the newer and larger main house on the right. The palette of both interiors was inspired by the colors of the Bahamas: the pale turquoise sea, pink beaches and vibrant native flowers. A huge old-fashioned porch, which overlooks the large pretty garden and out to the harbor, is the focal point of the main house.

Tree House is within easy walking distance of the best restaurants and shops and the island’s beautiful pale coral pink sand beach is 1 minute by golf cart. This is a very private compound yet it’s still part of the village. Occasionally the sounds of live local music waft up through the garden and from two nearby churches come the loveliest hymns. Tree House is a Bahamian gem on an island steeped in tradition, beauty, color and pride.
