About Barry & Diane Matsas

Barry & Diane welcome you to Paradise Found. Barry originally from Cyprus and Diane, Bahamian born have been enjoying Home Away visitors with open arms for the past year.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Why Barry & Diane Matsas chose Nassau

Water front, private, quiet and peaceful. Paradise Found really is your own Paradise.

What makes this townhome unique

Only a short drive from downtown Nassau and Paradise Island, yet you can still fish, swim and snorkel right from your downstairs patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to scuba dive. We were not disappointed with 2 wall dives and 2 wrecks. Paradise Found's location with steps into the ocean is spectacular. The accommodations had everything we needed to make our stay effortless. We did not have to call for anything, everything was provided and this includes for our 18 month old grandson. Barry's advice on where to dine was perfect. When we ate in we enjoyed the limes and basil from the garden. Paradise Found was truly Paradise Found. The view spectacular. A great set up for 2 families. The kitchen is really well stocked, we especially appreciate the Tupperware (( plastic containers ). Great for families with a young child complete with high chair and pack n' play.

Loved Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. You can't beat being right on the water and looking out at the ocean from the two patios—and every window in the house. You can swim and snorkel right off the first floor patio. The sunrises and sunsets were fantastic. The house is very clean and well furnished. Barry and Diane are wonderful hosts, ready to help with suggestions on where to go, what to do and anything else you might need. Barry gave us herbs and tomatoes from his garden. There is a supermarket nearby and the drive along the coast to downtown is really pretty. We'll definitely be back!

2nd Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip this year and both stays at Paradise Found were amazing. We love this house and most of all we love the owners, Barry and Diane. This place is exactly as it states, Paradise. We are planning our 3rd trip and we just got back today. If you want quite, stay here. If you want to meet two of the nicest people, Barry and Diane, stay here. If you want to get away from the busy downtown cruise ship crowd, stay here. If you want to see some of the most amazing sun rises ever, stay here. Tell Barry and Diane, Dave and Stacey sent you.

Can wait to see you both again..

All the best,

Dave & Stacey

Our third visit but definitely not our last!

  • 5 of 5

As usual, Paradise Found was a great choice. The location is absolutely beautiful & the owners go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Diane is a wonderful baker & likes to share her goodies. She brought us fresh baked coconut bread (which I have never had) & pumpkin bread. Absolutely delicious. Barry is always so helpful & makes sure you have everything you need. This is the best rental I have ever found through Home Away. We feel so at home every time we arrive there. We can not wait to return.

High school graduation trip for my oldest son! We had an amazing time.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at paradise found! Spectacular view, I did not want to come home. Barry and Diane have the place stocked with everything you will need! Very spacious for our family of 6 and VERY clean. Barry was very helpful with fishing ideas and which place was best for grocery shopping. Definitely felt like part of the family by the time we left. 😘?

We rented a car and found it very easy to navigate around the island. The boys loved their time at Atlantis in the casino!

We hope to back soon.

Peace and love,

Carissa, David, Blake, Luke, Baby Grant and Uncle Brad. 😁?

Paradise is truly Found at this oceanfront townhouse with breathtaking views of the ocean. Nestled along the east coast of Nassau, this peaceful vacation spot is away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Only a few minutes drive away from grocery shopping and about 15 minutes from downtown and Paradise Island where you could choose from any type of restaurants and attractions as well as a swim at Cabbage Beach one of the most beautiful and Pristine in the world.

There is a Five Star, world famous resort called Atlantis, located on the very popular Paradise Island. Visit the restaurants and shops at Marina Village, tennis, swim with the dolphins or participate in various tourist sea excursions. Tourists can buy a day pass for $136 per adult and $90 per child and be able to enjoy all of its facilities including the Water Theme Park, slides, underwater aquariums and gorgeous beaches.

A visit to Blue Lagoon Island is highly recommended where you can pat the Sea Lions and swim with the Dolphins.Guests can spend a whole or half day on the beach on this excursion.

If your looking for things to do in Nassau, forget it, leave the hustle and bustle behind and come to Rose Island! Spend the day snorkeling and kayaking or lazing on our private beach or in our hammocks. Be a true castaway and partake in the beauty and excitement Sandy Toes has to offer!

There is a full day 'Family Island' trips/excursions on the 'Bohengy Boat' (also called Bahamas Fast Ferries) which takes approximately 2-1/2 hours to travel to family islands like Harbor Island, Eleuthera, where there are more gorgeous, secluded beaches with pink sand.

Please find below 10 suggestions for 'Things To Do In Nassau' as follows:

1. The Straw Market - Start your vacation at Nassau's Straw Market. It's in the middle of town, and it's very popular with visitors.

2. Bay Street - If you're looking for bargains on designer clothing and other luxury items, you'll be delighted with the duty-free prices in Nassau's prime shopping district. Dance your way from store to store, with music from the steel drums at the nearby Straw Market

3. The Pirates Museum for families with kids seem to really enjoy this adventure.

4. Have your wedding or anniversary celebration at one of our gorgeous beaches or one of our Oldest Churches called Christ Church Cathedral in downtown where Prince Harry recently visited.

5. Ardastra Gardens - One mile west of downtown Nassau, you'll find one of the area's most enduring tourist attractions. A conservation center run by people who consider the animals--especially the flamingos--their companions, not pets. The Gardens' must-see attraction is their world-famous Marching Flamingo show which takes place three times daily. As their guide shouts commands, 30 or more flamingos perform in unison. No visit to Nassau is complete without a visit to this quirky site.

6. Fort Charlotte - While you're at Ardastra Gardens, visit nearby Fort Charlotte, the largest and most interesting of Nassau's three colonial forts. It features a waterless moat, a drawbridge, underground passages and even a dungeon. Be sure to look for graffiti etched in the walls by soldiers who were stationed here. Although this 18th-century fort isn't especially beautiful, you'll be glad that you brought your camera for the picture perfect views of Nassau Harbor. Admission to the fort is free, as are the regular guided tours


7. Queen's Staircase - While you're touring the town, be sure to climb the Queen's Staircase. With one step for each year of Queen Victoria's life, the top of this limestone staircase offers one of the best views of the area. Considered one of the world's top ten outdoor staircases, it's also a short walk from the top to Fort Fincastle, built in 1793. This is another spectacular lookout to capture Nassau's magnificent landscapes in photos.

8. Junkanoo - If you're in Nassau in December, get ready to party at the annual Junkanoo festival.

9.The Flying Cloud, a 57-foot catamaran, sets sail for entertaining and exciting trips around Nassau Harbor. The half-day sail and snorkel adventure lasts about 3-1/2 hours, and features a high-speed sail to Rose Island, where you can swim in the ocean, snorkel a nearby coral reef or just lounge on the beach.

10. Shipwreck Cruises - For the ultimate adventure, hop a boat and sail to a deserted island for lunch, snorkeling, and exploring. Several companies offer exciting planned adventures for adults as well as families, with different destinations and themes. Whether you're interested in a leisurely cruise or a high-speed ride on a world-class powerboat, you'll find a wide range of water adventures waiting for you in Nassau.
