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 & Paradise Island

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 have had the most amazing adventures here. Memories to last a lifetime. Paradise found was a perfect home away from home, peaceful and beautiful views. Sadly we stayed so busy we didn't get to know Barry & Diane well, but they were so hospitable when we did see them. Our adventures included an excursion to Sandy Toes on Rose Island (highly recommend). We went jet skiing and parasailing at Goodman's Bay. My husband and son met some locals who took them fishing for a 1/2 day and they had a blast. We were able to share the catch with Barry and cook the rest on the grill. My children got to experience snorkeling for the first time right off our deck. This trip was a dream come true vacation for us, so glad we were in this home and not at a resort.

I hope we are fortunate enough to return someday.

Thank you from Daniel, Wanda, Alex and Olivia

Wonderful week in the Bahamas, Paul and Julie Grove, Columbus, Ohio

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 16 year old son and myself stayed for a week at Paradise Found. I cannot say enough about our hosts, Barry and Diane. My questions about the property were answered quickly and by the time we arrived I felt as though we had known them for years. The house was exactly what we needed, a well stocked kitchen, lots of towels and spotless! The views from the balcony were stunning and having access to the sea from the lower level patio was wonderful for our snorkeling adventures. Barry was thrilled to show us his fantastic garden and we got to enjoy some of the produce he grew. He was so helpful when we needed to find a local supermarket and fresh fish for dinner.

Thank you so much Barry and Diane. We hope to come back to Paradise Found in the future.

Definitely Paradise Found Susan & Finn, Bruce & MaryLee from Canada

  • 5 of 5

This most definitely was a wonderful place to stay. The location was awesome, absolutely spotless with everything you need to enjoy your time with a beautiful view. Which makes this place even more special are the owners, Barry and Diane. They are very proud of their home and extend that warmth to the 2 Floor VRBO accommodation. Barry took us to his garden across the road and shared some of the fruit and herbs he grows. Having the water virtually outside your door was wonderful and the balcony overlooking the water was a great way to unwind in the evening. We were 2 couples who enjoyed their stay. A car is a must for the island.

Return to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed our 2 week stay at Paradise Found. This is an excellent property and with me being a clean freak....it exceeded our expectations. There is everything you could possibly need at this property from the inside out. Inside as I stated, it is spotless....nice thick bathroom towels, beach towels, all of the kitchen ware you need...and then you go outside to spectacular views from both upper and lower decks. You literally walk right into the ocean from the lower deck.....beautiful! Barry and Diane are excellent hosts and make it a point to make sure your comfort is their number one priority. On the upper deck there is a great BBQ along with a built in table for dining out in total privacy. This property is great for a family or even 2 separate couples travelling together as both would have their own separate quarters. I would highly recommend this property and am looking forward to returning again next year. Thanks so much Barry and Diane!

Paradise, truly found

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Found was just what our party of five needed - serene, comfortable accommodations right by the ocean. We needed to get away from stressful work, the winter doldrums, and all the hubbub of city living. Barry & Diane are warm, gracious, generous hosts who have provided everything one needs to make Paradise Found a home away from home. Barry truly has a green thumb and his garden is amazing! We are all gardeners so we can appreciate his green gifts. He even provided us a tutorial on how to open up a coconut to enjoy the luscious coconut water. He allowed us to borrow some snorkeling equipment so we could enjoy ocean life right outside our door. We saw stunning sunrises and sunsets. Paradise Found is in a neighborhood environment which allows for a lot of peace and quiet, yet, you are close enough to go into town for shopping, dinner, nightlife and entertainment. I definitely recommend getting a rent car. For us, it was exciting sometimes because we had to get acclimated to driving on the "left" side of the road. The townhouse is spacious and very clean and Barry and Diane have thought of everything you might need to make your stay effortless. Again, they want nothing for you except to not want for anything and to totally relax and enjoy island living. A trip we won't soon forget. Thank you, Barry & Diane, for letting us make memories at Paradise Found. Hope to be there again some day.

Best Trip Ever

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Wonderful! Is what we have to say about Barry and Diane. The minute we got there, they made us feel so comfortable in their home; we could not find better hosts like Barry and Diane. Their garden is beautiful with all kind of fruit trees, we were totally enjoy the fresh coconut water, it was so sweet and flavorful.

The property is truly PARADISE, you could not beat the view in the morning; the water was so calm and warm, I really miss the early morning swim, just imagine, you have the biggest swimming pool in the world next to your bedroom...

The balcony on the second floor was a bonus, we saw all kind of fish from the top view and the morning sunrise was absolute beautiful...

The bedrooms (2) are spacious, the kitchen has everything to prepare nice homemade dinners, the living room is comfortable, but why would you want to stay inside when you can hang around the balcony to enjoy the best view and the beautiful weather!

The fish market is less than 10 minutes away, we stopped by the fish market every day to buy some fresh catch for dinners, the bonus was, we did not have to clean them, paid a few dollars and they were ready to go.

If you plan a trip to Caribbean, I highly recommend "Paradise Found", it will be the most memorable trip you've ever had. We have already talked about our next trip at "Paradise Found" for next year.

Thanks again Barry and Diane...

Best value for our money!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this townhouse when we vacationed in Nassau last summer. The house was spacious and gave us enough room to move around and sleep comfortably. With all the amenities made available to us, we certainly had everything we need. We had our best meals in the balcony with the breathtaking ocean view. On those occasions when we wanted to dine out, the restaurants in the area have the best food Nassau has to offer. One of the best parts of that trip, swimming and snorkeling right in front of the house! It's like you have the ocean as your pool! Bahamas is certainly one of the best escapades for group of friends and family and surely, staying in this house will make it a more memorable experience.

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.

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.
