A PLACE TO UNWIND
Explore Paradise Island with its world class outdoor water park/aquarium and historic downtown Nassau.
Swim in the crystal clear waters off a gorgeous Atlantic Ocean beach on Paradise Island or the pretty protected beach just down the road, literally a few minutes walk away. Immerse yourself in the history of the fort at the beach and sample conch fritters, fresh coconut water and "sky juice" (spiked coconut water) and the unique culture of the Bahamas at the park.
Visit Doongalik art studio with the local craft cottage and talk to the artists just a stone's throw from Silk Cotton Cottage.
A well stocked supermarket, liquor store, shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the cottage. Or stroll through the nearby exotic garden of palms at the Bahamas National Trust.
Bahama Divers and various boat excursion operations to beautiful Rose Island are a few minutes by bus or a 10-15 minute walk from the cottage.

We honour our guests privacy. However, if you need assistance with anything or if you'd like to stop by the main residence to chat and learn about our island and culture, just let us know.
We monitor email on a regular basis. If you don't hear back from us right away, it means we're probably out in the boat or fishing, but we'll be sure to get back to you.
