About The Owner


We grew up in the islands and know Nassau like the back of our hands.

We love Silk Cotton Cottage because it marries Old World charm with modern comforts.

We especially like the laid back tropical setting with the convenience of nearby beaches, shops, restaurants and attractions.

If we're not working, we're out in the boat snorkeling and fishing. If the sea's rough, we putter around the garden, grill and chill.

We have carved various unique spots out of the garden for relaxing and bird watching.

In season, when the mangoes are ripe, the beautiful bright red and green Bahama Parrots feast in the silk cotton trees

We get Red Starts, Buntings and Warblers in the cooler months and the garden's always alive with humming birds and thrashers.

Why The Owner chose New Providence

Silk Cotton Cottage is comfortable, well maintained and spotless.

There's lots of green shady place to relax after a day in the hot sun or exploring Nassau.

Proximity to the beach, downtown Nassau and Paradise Island makes this property special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a lovely cottage. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New Providence. It is very cozy and safe, and meticulously taken care of by the owners. I certainly had everything I needed while staying there. It is at the end of a quiet cul de sac and nestled in the back of a beautiful old garden featuring exotic native trees and plants; very peaceful. At the same time, it is ideally located for walking to the beach or taking the bus in no time to downtown Nassau and Paradise Island and all of the amenities they have to offer, including easy excursions to the pristine Family Islands. Love the place, and you can’t beat the price. So much nicer and much more of an authentic experience than staying in a hotel, too.

A Lovely Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Silk Cotton and Tina and Ian provided everything you could possibly need. The outdoor shower was such a nice touch! We appreciated the offers for transportation and advice on attractions and events in the area. We would definitely book this little gem again!

We had a great time! Convenient location. Beautiful gardens. The place had everything we needed and Tina and Ian were very easy to deal with and helpful with a ride downtown and to the grocery store. Greatly appreciated! Would definitely stay again!

A wonderful Bahamian experience!

  • 5 of 5

Silk Cottage Cottage was our home away from home. We strive to find places that makes us feel at home while incorporating local culture. From the authentic Bahamian architecture to the beautiful tropical gardens with birds galore, this Cottage fit our every need. It was clean and well decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals.

Tina and Ian were the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered. They anticipated our every need, from the pre-arrival information, to arranging transportation from the airport, to taking us to the grocery store the evening of our arrival.

Thaks for the trip to Potter's Cay for fresh conch and ingredients for the best conch salad we have ever eaten. A real treat for landlocked dwellers like us.

This is truly a place you won't want to miss.

Fantastic Bahamas Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage at the end of March through the first weekend in April. The accommodations were perfect with plenty of space and things that you would need to make your stay comfortable (e.g., toiletries, linens/towels, kitchen tools/equipment, books, television, information regarding local activities/restaurants ). There was even sunscreen, bug spray, coffee maker, cooler, a grill, and an outdoor shower. The air conditioner did a good job of cooling us off on hot and steamy days. The gardens around the main house were beautiful and attracted all sorts of beautiful birds. We enjoyed spending the evenings star gazing and listening to the sounds of nature by the light of the tiki torches. The cottage is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. In addition, there is a nice local beach, seafood market, and craft/artisan market nearby. Bus transportation to downtown was easily accessible, and our hosts, Tina and Ian, were wonderful in offering us rides to pick up groceries and access various sites around the Island. They are fantastic people, and their warm and generous hospitality was what made our trip to the Bahamas a truly special and memorable one.

Lovely cottage and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Silk Cotton cottage, which was clean and very well equipped. We loved sitting in the garden with all the flowers and watching the birds as well as the parrots! The home is close to the bridge to Paradise Island and we went several times to Cabbage Beach. We had lunch at Curly's at Fish Fry and it was very good. We have used VRBO for several years and Tina and Ian were two of the best hosts we have met - very responsive to our needs and helpful and took us out on their boat on the week-end. We felt we had made new friends by the time we left.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Silk Cotton Cottage was a very good decision that we made.

We went into thinking it would be another VRBO or AirBNB stay. We have good experiences with those companies and the places that we stay but it's not the primary reason we enjoy our holidays.

Tina and Ian made this experience very different. While we enjoyed Nassau and the islands, and the dolphins, what made our week in the Bahamas extraordinary was their company. We enjoyed going on a boat ride, and sitting in their garden learning more about the Bahamas that I would've ever garnered from a pamphlet or museum. Visiting with them gave us a personal and warm family feeling when we got back to their residence.

The cottage was clean and lovely. When we entered the wind was billowing the white curtains everywhere like a postcard. The bed was a Superking with great pillows and mattress. We had plenty of towels and extra amenities if we forgot ours. Upon arrival Tina gave us a ride to pick up our food where we enjoyed the lovely kitchen and outdoor grill area. The cottage is extremely peaceful, except for a random siren and dog, and we slept better than we have in months.

WE thought that is was good value for money.

I would say the cottage is best for two people for a relaxing island getaway. If you are not renting a car, the jitney stops are very close to the cottage and can get you easily around the island. The two bridges to Paradise Island are walkable as well.

I would highly recommend this cottage and Tina and Ian.
