EVERYTHING YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW AND
You may already be familiar with our wonderful Harbour Island but, if not, the following little gems might be useful ...
HOW TO FIND US WHEN YOU ARRIVE:
On arrival at Eleuthera Airport walk straight through and out to the front. Taxi drivers will appear from the woodwork. Choose one and he will show you to turn left to the iron gates at the end of the building. This is the point to which your baggage will be delivered. It is a 5-minute road taxi ride to Three Island Dock. At the dock there is a water taxi service across to Harbour Island. This is a ten minute ride and should cost about $5 per person. When you arrive at the Dunmore Town dock, the Sunset Harbour Estate is a 5-minute road taxi. Alternatively ask the water taxi to take you to what we now call “Dempsey dock” in Island speak. You will be at the water’s edge and can walk up to the home. If arriving by water taxi let us know in advance so that we can arrange for our Property Manager Shabba to carry your luggage up to the house. The White House is via the gate up along the full length of the concrete path up the stairs on the right 101 feet from the waters edge.
If arriving by road taxi, the entrance to the house is on the main road (Colebrook Street). You will see a white gate with a stainless steel sign “The White House – Private”. Shabba will be on hand to welcome you.
ARRIVING BY PRIVATE BOAT:
You will enter the waters between Eleuthera and Harbour Island following the deep water channel, carefully bi-passing the sandbank known as 'Girls Bank'. You will notice on your left a large square pink building on the end of a dock. This is Government Dock. Further on, by some 500 metres, is Valentines Marina with its large boats and colourful buildings. Keep going around the bay and you will pass several private docks. Sunset Harbour dock will now be straight ahead of you. It’s the largest dock between Valentines and Romora Bay. Shabba (cell phone: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), Mr Dawson’s property manager, will be around to show you which slip you have been allocated.

I have been visiting harbour island for 15 years - in 2006 we took the plunge and acquired one of the new properties on the Sunset Harbour resort - its quite a special place with a friendly environment. We have been renting it out since March 2013.
