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 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 the famous Tippys . Eleuthera is a special place to us that has always served as a getaway.

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

After staying in a "resort" 5 min away from the beach for 1 day, we realized that we need to live on the beach if we spend the time and money to travel to Eleuthera! So, we checked into Purple Papaya for the remaining 5 days. It is a brand new house that can sleep for 2 adults (and 1 kid). This property has all amenities, except an in-house laundry. Beautiful ocean view, superb pool and access. I will be posting pictures when TripAdvisor offers a link to add pics. We found and booked it via AirBnB. We received excellent response and service from the local staff whenever we needed any help. We had the best time - going to the beach several times a day, as it was exactly as shown in the pictures - just hop out, and you are on the beach. Loved every minute staying there, and moving about. Highly recommend this. Also, sharing a valuable lesson - when you spend so much, don't go by ratings - go by real pictures - that show whether you are getting real access to the beach, or real views. This property was perfect for us!

Party Of Two? This Is Your Place!

  • 5 of 5

Have been to many places throughout the Caribbean...this is now our favorite property.

Beautiful beach to be on too...and by "on", I mean ON the beach! Great house that is very nice, well appointed, open view of the beach/ocean and all just 50 yards to Tippy's and 5 minutes to Governor's Harbour.

King bed, nice open bathroom w/walk-in shower (body soap, shampoo & conditioner provided) quality towels, full kitchen (w/out oven, but who cares?!) A/C works great, ceiling fans, great pool, outdoor shower, open deck space, outdoor dining table/chairs, pool lounges, deck chairs...I'm telling you, it's perfect.

The pictures and YouTube video of the property are accurate...the place looks just like them. (maybe even better)

Owner is wonderful to work with too; timely communication, no problems whatsoever.

I actually don't want to share this review of a perfect place, for fear it won't be available when I want to go next time!!! :)

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to meet Rhonda. She was very nice and accommodating. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with supplies. Most beautiful views of the ocean just outside the door. This place is truly divine and we most definitely will come back here for our next get away!

Thanks for everything

Beautiful cottage ! Very clean with all the modern ammenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time spending the week right on the beach! The house is practically brand new, with a nice kitchen and tiled bathroom. The infinity pool looks out over the ocean. Very close to restaurants, grocery stores, gas, and even a small sporting goods store in downtown Governor's Harbor.

The beach house you dream of

  • 5 of 5 can I best summarize our stay here? How about beyond what we expected. The Golden Chalice is the quint essential beach house you picture staying in when on a vacation to Eleuthera. Our stay here was filled with everything we needed. From the beautifully decorated interior to the hospitality of Rhonda, this is a spot definitely worth staying in!
