Salt Box since 1820

Salt Box is a romantic historical property located in the heart of Harbour Island in the  Bahamas. Constructed of thick coral stone blocks and a native Bahamian hardwood colloquially referred to as “Abaco Steel”, the house has stood the test of time. In 2016, a brand new guest cottage and pool were added to the property by acclaimed architect Kiko Sanchez with interiors by Amanda Lindroth.

The main house was owned and lovingly restored by world-famous interior designer Tom Scheerer.  The master suite occupies the entire second floor.

The hardwood floors of the master suite have been painted a glossy white to reflect light throughout the room, while the walls and ceiling are a soothing seafoam green.

Created in 2021 the Clam Shell sits on coral stone blocks quarried when the house cistern was excavated in 1820. From this corner of the property you have a spectacular view that comes to life in the evenings. 

The Historical Kitchen & Fire Place

Salt Box is one of the last historical homes with a functional fireplace inside the kitchen. First modernized in the 1940's then again by Tom Scheerer in the late 90s' when he added the Cuban tiles found in most of the oldest houses in The Bahamas. Recently it was modernized again in 2021 to add counter space and amenities while keeping its original design and charm.
