Nassau & Paradise Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Cottage With Sea Views And A 3 Minute Walk To The Beach!

Birdsong is a new, modern cottage with just over 1,500 sq.Ft of living space and an additional 500 sq.ft of verandah outdoor living. Situated on a beautifully landscaped property, framed by native trees and flowers - the property attracts local birds of all kinds, hence the name birdsong!

You will enjoy our private 3 bed/2 bath home in a quiet and secluded bahamian community (4th bed is a sofa bed in the lounge). The local beach is a short 3 minute walk away, and our second community beach is less than 5 minutes away by car. A short 15 minute drive will get you to the world famous Cabbage Beach and Atlantis Resort and Casino. Baha Mar and the 'Bahamian Riviera' is a short 25 minutes away (all times assume good traffic flow).

Enjoy a quick sandwich or a gourmet home cooked meal prepared in our fully equipped and modern kitchen which includes a stainless steel gas range and gas oven, large stainless steel fridge/freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal and other kitchen must haves!

Our outdoor eating area gets you in a festive bahamian spirit as it is nestled in the gardens under massive coconut fronds! It's an especially great location to savor your favorite cocktails! Grill your catch of the day or a great steak from the nearby supermarket (less than 1 mile away) on our kettle charcoal grill!

Our master bedroom with ensuite bath has a king bed and features a walk-in closet. Our second bedroom has a queen bed, and our third bedroom has 2 single beds. Rooms 2 and 3 have easy access to a second full bathroom. Our home also boasts a convenient laundry closet with a washer/dryer for your convenience. However, in authentic bahamian style - we also have a clothes line available as no drying source is more efficient than the sun…and we have plenty of sun at birdsong in historic Nassau, Bahamas!

About Makia & Charlotte Gibson

We are a blended family of a native Bahamian boy and a roaming New Zealander girl. Having met more than 12 years ago - we have been married almost 10 years and have made a home at birdsong for our 2 sons. Zealous travelers, we wanted to create a home that was just what a transient family would need to be super comfortable - so we know that you will be comfortable too in our beautiful Bahamian home!

Makia & Charlotte Gibson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Makia & Charlotte Gibson chose Nassau & Paradise Island

After a long search, we decided on this property because of its proximity to the beach! Also, we were captivated by its quiet and secluded location - yet it is very accessible!

What makes this cottage unique

The gardens are lush - and when all the flowers are in full bloom, the views and colors are resplendent! Not to mention, the fruit trees: coconuts, sea grapes, young mango and avocado trees (not yet blooming).

After my parents told us about “Birdsong”, my husband and I were very excited to take our vacation in The Bahamas and stay here. Talk about a world away from the world. This house literally provided a quiet and private oasis, perfect for our anniversary.

Oh! We loved the sweet gift that Charlotte left for us: wine and chocolate. We totally spent that first night on the deck, drinking some sweet wine, nibbling on chocolate, and enjoying the beautiful weather and view. Thank you Charlotte!

The place is clean, comfortable, and absolutely gorgeous.

We Came Back Again

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time coming here! We have made visiting The Bahamas our annual family vacation. This time though, we invited a couple friends to come with us and Bird Song housed us all easily. Our friends were impressed and now completely understand why we have come here before!

We spent the entire week at the house and at the beach. We took advantage of the BBQ outside and mostly relaxed in the sun. I highly recommend this home for every type of vacation.

Charlotte’s thoughtfulness and attentiveness has remained the best, from our first stay to our last. She treats all her guest with such kindness and warmth. Am very happy to have met her.

Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5
Makia and Charlotte really made us feel at home. While we were there, they contacted us from time to time to make sure that we were happy and comfortable. We definitely were. This house blew us away. The inside was very spacious and had everything we needed during our stay. The house gets a sea breeze so we kept the windows open the entire vacation! Very safe neighborhood, so no worries there.

We were able to visit Atlantis! It was only about a 10-minute drive. Don’t forget to do some snorkeling at Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island (go to the far eastern end, around the rocks). The water is beautiful and has some lovely tropical fish.

Clean and Nice Home

  • 5 of 5
Pulling into the driveway, we were welcomed with a lush but well maintained front yard. The inside of the house includes comfy furniture and a nice full kitchen. All the rooms were clean and had everything we needed for our stay. There are 3 bedrooms total and 2 full baths, so there was plenty of space for everyone. A large deck is attached to the house and steps down into a nice backyard – complete with play area for the kids and a charcoal BBQ for grilling options (we used this daily as we were constantly outside). There were two beaches that were recommended but we just went to the closest one to the house. The house is also located near the supermaket so that was a bonus. We really felt like we were able to enjoy the serene environment of the Bahamas but visit the local culture at the tourist sites with a short drive. Will definitely contact again when we are in the Bahamas next time.

My FOREVER Go - To Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful home right near the beach! We just got back from our stay at the Birdsong house and already miss it. The house was in perfect condition when we arrived, and true to the name, we were greeted with the beautiful sounds of birds. The inside of the house was very clean and provided plenty of space for my husband, 2 kids, and me. The kids loved playing in the sandpit and we were able to enjoy some drinks and the lovely weather on the patio area. The location is also great. The house is literally minutes from the beach. At the same time, we also visited the Cabbage Beach and Atlantis Casino with a short drive. We ended up relaxing at the house for most of the stay, we did drive past the Baha Mar under construction and hope to visit that next time when it has opened.

Plenty of Space, Peace and Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage! The open space in the living/dining and kitchen area, opening onto the deck provided plenty of opportunity to relax. Our favourite evening pastime was to have a glass of wine on the deck and enjoy the balmy temperatures and light ocean breeze...The perfect way to relax.
During the day, the choices were endless. It was so convenient to be close to beach without the hustle and bustle of a million other tourists. We did enjoy visits to Atlantis and Cabbage Beach but it was so nice to have our own peaceful space to return to at the end of the day
We had our two year old grandson with us during our stay and loved the enclosed yard and garden for him to explore. With two bathrooms, there was plenty of space for everyone to wash the sand off after a visit to the beach! Being so close to the local beach was a huge plus.
Thank you to Charlotte and Makia... this was one of our favourite holidays!

Birdsong is located in tranquil Eastern New Providence. Eastern New Providence is known for its well established and family oriented residential communities. Birdsong is located on a quiet street surrounded by established family homes. In less than 5 minutes by car, guests can reach Super Value, the oldest and most popular grocery store chain in The Bahamas. Also located within 5 minutes are fast-food restaurants (Wendy's, Dominos Pizza, Marco's Pizza to name a few) and authentic Bahamian fast-food options too - most notably Bamboo Shack. A very well stocked liquor store only 5 minutes away by car, combined with 2 community beaches, one 5 minutes by foot and the other 3 minutes by car - make our community a convenient option for those looking to get away.

For more excitement and to mingle with throngs of vacationers, the vibrant and historic Downtown Nassau is easily accessible by car. The Straw Market which is located downtown is a fun way to barter for souvenirs. There are also any number of other shopping options available downtown to suit every budget.

The world famous Atlantis Resort and Casino is a must visit as well as a swim at Cabbage Beach - one of the most beautiful and pristine in the world. Both attractions are located on Paradise Island which is a short ride away.

New Providence Island is just 21 miles long by 7 miles wide (at its widest point). Therfefore the whole Island is our community! Nothing is far away - however knowing the best time of day to travel on the roads is critical.
