Overview

About the property

4 Beds/4 Baths In House + Guest Cottage, OR 3 Beds/3 Baths in Main House Only

A recent Guest wrote 'If you need to stop and reconnect with yourself, your family, and this glorious world, book Seabreeze. Relax and be enveloped by the luxuries and grace of this island home'.

This luxurious Bahamian designed home together with 'optional' guest cottage can be rented as 3 En-suite Bedrooms (for up to 6 guests) or 4 En-Suite Bedrooms (for up to 8 guests). Seabreeze is elegant, comfortable and spacious integrating naturally with the wrap around pool, waterfall and inviting sun deck for perfect inside/outside living. Set against a backdrop of a beautiful, secluded garden, the uninterrupted views of the sea just 100' away where you can sit, relax and enjoy the watching the activity on the water. A really special feature is the private gazebo and sun deck right on the waters edge perfect for secluded private sunbathing, swimming, cocktails and BBQ while experiencing some of the most magnificent sunsets in the world.

Comfortable indoor and outdoor living and dining areas makes this an ideal home for family and friends where you can relax, entertain, or a little of both. The minute you walk into this air-conditioned house you will be amazed by the feeling of spaciousness and the breathtaking views through the 10' x 40' windows across the private pool and terraces to the dock and turquoise waters of the bay.

In the Great Room there is a high-tech kitchen with breakfast bar making this a very social space. The extendable dining table can seat up to 12 in comfort. A state of the art TV and media centre are the focal point in the seating area for evening entertainment or sitting quietly reading a book.

Upstairs the Master bedroom suite has a 14' high vaulted ceiling, a luxurious king sized bed, a walk-in closet and large bathroom, jacuzzi bath, double vanity units and shower. The private balcony overlooking the garden towards the harbour is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or a peaceful afternoon siesta. The second guest suite also located on this floor has a high vaulted ceiling, king sized bed, walk-in closet and bathroom with shower. The third guest suite is located off the Great Room on the ground floor with a king size bed, walk-in closet, bathroom with shower and a Juliette balcony. The detached Guest Cottage offers an optional fourth bedroom suite and a private outdoor sitting area which is under a pergola supporting a beautiful array of tropical flowering shrubs.

Situated almost on the water's edge Seabreeze has its own private dock with slips to accommodate boats up to 120'. Just a few minutes walk over the dunes behind the house is the famous Pink Sands Beach where you can take a leisurely walk, jog, swim or just lay back and enjoy paradise. For the evening perhaps a recommended private chef could cook you a delicious supper of locally caught fish or lobster in your own kitchen. Or within walking distance there is dining for all budgets, including a few of top international repute where you can enjoy some of the worlds finest cuisine.

Highlights of renting Seabreeze:

- Automatic Emergency Generator for when power outages occur.

- Reverse Osmosis Water Purification which is perfectly safe to drink. This is independent from the town water supply which has variable pressure and cannot be consumed safely

- High Speed Wi-Fi

- Cable T.V.

- Central, zoned Air-Conditioning

- Pool Heater

- Regular Maid Service

- Shared Property Manager available to deal with questions or issues which may arise

Seabreeze is 'Harbour Island Living at its Best' as described by another Guest and favoured by return visitors year on year. It is advised to book early as dates are often booked over a year in advance.

Harbour Island is just 3 miles long and 1/2 mile wide and lies a sea mile off the tip of North Eleuthera, literally a 5-minute taxi boat ride and 53 nautical miles north-east of Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas. Daily direct flights depart from Miami, Ft Lauderdale and Nassau to North Eleuthera Airport. Bahamas Fast Ferries also run a daily return service from Nassau which is a spectacular and exciting way to arrive on 'Briland' as the locals call it.

About Julia Dempsey

We quite simply fell in love with Harbour Island over 20 years ago and have been fortunate to own a property on this magical island ever since. We lovingly designed and built Seabreeze on Sunset Harbour Estate a few years ago and are very proud to share our home with our Guests.

Julia Dempsey purchased this house in 2010

Why Julia Dempsey 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. On dry land you can immerse yourself under the swaying palms of unforgettable hibiscus, bougainvilleas and jasmine. Relax, rejuvenate, re-energise yourself among the actual beauty ... or simply have fun exploring the island in your golf buggy. There are several exceptional boutiques, not just for clothes but objets d'art and local handicrafts and paintings.

What makes this house unique

Seabreeze offers individual seclusion and privacy whilst benefiting from a shared full time Estate Manager and Maid in a peaceful and tranquil setting of just over 2 acres on Sunset Harbour Estate. it is the perfect place to unwind and relax. At the end of another day in paradise just simply watch the most amazing sunsets with friends and loved ones. Sip a special cocktail still lazing by the pool, relaxing on the balcony or sitting at the waters edge under the Gazebo whilst creating lasting memories of this very special haven which brings visitors back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I gathered my family in your home, it was ideal. Spent time with our friends on the island, then had a beautiful place to spend quality time with just our kids. Enjoyed the view, the pool, the baby and so much more.

Incredible Week at Seabreeze on Harbour Island....5 MILLION STARS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Harbour and Eleuthera islands for over 20 years. This year, we decided to rent a private home instead of a resort hotel. What a wonderful experience we had a Seabreeze ! From the first moment I spoke with Julia, she was warm, responsive and simply wonderful to work with.This home surpasses every place we have ever stayed, anywhere, not just Harbour Island. The layout was perfect for our family with my sons being adults, it was great that we all had our own in-suite private bathrooms. The pool was a welcome treat at the end of our day, the kitchen and great room area are perfect for entertaining larger groups or parties. If you are have the need to have a bedroom suite on the main level but also additional bedrooms upstairs, this home is perfect as well. I loved the balcony off the maser bedroom on the second level and the lovely chaise lounge chairs up there, the perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day while watching the sunset. Having a private dock out the backdoor was really wonderful too, we were dropped off directly from the water taxi from North Eleuthera. The owners even had a Bahamian couple that took care of any additional needs we had( arranging golf cart pick up and drop off, calling for a cab on our departure day, housekeeping)which was nice to know in case anything came up during our stay.The home is stunning, private and perfectly situated for western sunsets on the bay side but just a 5 minute golf cart ride to the world-renowned pink sand beach and less than 10 minutes to all the incredible restaurants on the island. We especially loved the opportunity to all gather together for a week at such a beautiful home which also provided each of us with privacy to go to bed early or sleep in as we chose, something that the resorts or smaller homes did not offer, it was incredible ! Having used VRBO and AIR BNB quite often the past few years with travel in the US, Julia was by far the best owner in terms of communication and assistance on this lovely home she and Peter so graciously share as a rental. If you've never been to " Briland" (Harbour Island) or are a veteran visitor to the island ( like us) I cannot recommend this home enough, you will not be disappointed ! It's worth every penny and more when compared to the other private homes available for rent on the island...Bravo Julia and Peter creating such a lovely spot & for allowing us to stay in paradise at Seabreeze!

Perfect long wknd

  • 4 of 5

House was absolutely great. Main house is very nicely appointed with stunning views of harbor and sunset. Rented a boat and had it tied up at dock. Really great long weekend. Opportunities for improvement are: guest house - which needs updating and kitchen needs some new pots and pans.

Amazing Seabreeze

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful days with friends at Seabreeze. The location of the house is perfect...close to restaurants and the beach. The house was very open and spacious, and the 3 master bedrooms were very nice. The sunsets were amazing and I hope to return very soon.

What a beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place you and Peter have at Harbour Island! Our family had an absolutely wonderful time relaxing and enjoying your house and the island. The information that you gave us, prior to our arrival was outstanding.

We will definitely be returning, as soon as we can. In fact, none of us had any desire to leave, yesterday. We have returned to a winter storm.

Shabba and Shalese were so helpful and so kind to us.

Thanks for a wonderful get-away.

Perfect Location/Perfect Vacation/Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Seabreeze two years ago, and it was the obvious choice for me to pay yet another visit - to beautiful Harbour Island. Again, as before, Julia, too, made it very easy for me to decide because of her rapid and helpful responses to all my detailed questions. Seabreeze is a home-from-home in a perfect location. Situated on the Harbour Bay, one can enjoy panoramic views of the water, stunning sunrises and sunsets in peaceful and private surroundings; either from the large master bedroom terrace upstairs, from the pool terrace, or from way out at the end of the dock in the cooling breeze. Seabreeze is a mere few minutes away from the quaint and historic architecture and musical culture of tiny Dunmore Town.

Shabba and Shalese, who look after the impeccably equipped and maintained property, couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, and they keep the house immaculately clean - including the amazing 10ft. high panoramic windows. Since my last visit the house has been redecorated, the pool surface renewed and the deck furniture replaced. It all felt and looked pristine, light and airy.

I went seeking rest and recuperation, and that’s what I found; enhanced by wonderful walks on the Pink Sands beach just minutes away from the house, and hours spent simply relaxing in the sunshine. I hope to return to stay at Seabreeze again soon. My next visit can’t come quickly enough.
