About Bird of Paradise

We are a family run operation of hospitality professionals.

Bird of Paradise purchased this house in 2004

Why Bird of Paradise chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

We purchased the land where the Bird of Paradise Cottages now stand in 2004 on a complete whim with aspirations to eventually build. It wasn't until 2016 when we finally broke ground on three cottages that now sit facing the Atlantic Ocean just south of the famous Tippys. Eleuthera is a special place to us that has always served as a simple getaway.

What makes this house unique

We have traveled all over the globe and believe the beaches of Eleuthera far surpass anything we have ever seen.

These Bird of Paradise Beachfront Cottages are a must rent. Our party of four stayed in Shooting Star, the larger of the three units. The homes are all new, well equipped, and simply fabulous. Our contact Rhonda was delightful, helpful and knowledgeable. A return stay is definitely in our future.

A Walk in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Felt like paradise. Well thought out New Home with the latest amenities. Property manager was very helpful and attentive. Only criticism is that splash. pool wasn’t heated. We didn’t have the best weather. It would have been nice to go into the pool
