About Bird of Paradise

We are a family run operation of hospitality professionals.

Bird of Paradise purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Bird of Paradise chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

We purchased the land where Bird of Paradise Beachfront Cottages now stand in 2004 on a complete whim with aspirations to eventually build. It wasn't until 2016 when we finally broke ground on three cottages that now sit facing the Atlantic Ocean just south of Tippys. Eleuthera is a special place to us that has always served as a location to simply getaway from it all.

What makes this cottage unique

We have traveled all over the globe and believe the beaches of Eleuthera far surpass anything we have ever seen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location with splendid views and easy access to beaches, town of GH, etc. The villa is new and well kept. Rhonda, the manager of the three villas, was fantastic and very helpful. I highly recommend staying at any of the three villas, Purple Papaya, Shooting Star, and Golden Chalace.

Wonderful home, modern and clean, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever! The home was everything we hoped it would be. Clean and modern with spectacular views. Easy check in and didn't have any problems while we were there. We can't wait to go back. Having your own private pool and easy access to the beach made this the perfect home.

Absolutely Loved the Purple Papaya!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in January. We loved the house. The view, beach and pool were beautiful. The interior was spotless and very nice. I was a bit worried when i heard that the house is directly beside Tippy's parking lot, but there is shrubbery so you don't even see it. And the waves crashing keeps you from hearing anything. We actually loved the fact that it was besides Tippy's, especially my husband, we spent several nights there and made some great friends! Also we loved the location on the island, very close to Governor's Harbour. We would definetly go back. Rhonda was awesome.
