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!

I took my girlfriend to Nassau for her birthday. I booked with Barry and Diane based on past reviews and we are so glad we did. This house is the most incredible rental we've ever done. Barry met us at the house, walked us through everything. They even went to the store for us before we arrived and picked up a few things we needed since we arrived so late. We were made to feel like family the minute we arrived. The house is beautiful, clean, fully furnished with everything you need. We can't begin to thank Barry and Diane enough for everything they did for us. They are now friends for life and we are going back in June. If you want a safe place to stay, absolute gorgeous house, the most unbelievable view and the nicest people you will ever meet, stay with Barry and Diane. Thank you both for an amazing trip. See you soon. Your friends, Dave & Stacey

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th time back at this that should tell you how much we love it here. Barry and Diane are wonderful hosts and make sure that your stay is nothing less than wonderful. I do recommend a car rental to get around....there is a lovely new grocery store a mile down the road and alot of restaurants nearby. We did alot of cooking in as there is a BBQ on the top deck and who doesnt enjoy eating outside looking at the ocean!! We have already booked for next year.....see you then :)

Truly Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I remember finding this listing and wondering how any place could get only five stars... now I know! Paradise Found was the perfect vacation home for our family of six (four teenage girls!) We made use of the market just a mile down the road and made almost all our meals right there at home. We had a vegan in our bunch and the market had everything we needed.

To say the place was immaculate is an understatement - everything was just perfect. Plenty of towels and linens, all the comforts you need. Barry and Diane have thought of everything.

We took several day trips to different beaches and loved coming home to Paradise Found. Experiencing the island like this was perfect for us - we really got to see so much. The driving is intense. Aside from driving on the left side of the road, there are just different rules. Most people only honk to politely thank you for letting them go. Some intersections are truly a free-for-all. There are hardly any street signs - navigating can be tough if you don't have a GPS plan but we did alright with a map and a few wrong turns. Traffic is what it is - just relax and try not to be in a hurry, after all, you're on vacation! l.

Being right on the water is incredible. There's a long stretch of concrete/seawall where the girls would sunbathe or exercise at sunrise. The sunrises and sunsets were exquisite. We'd wake up and walk down the steps into the ocean for a morning swim - the water was wonderful. Brisk but comfortable. While water shoes aren't totally necessary, I think they made it more comfortable to walk out farther in the water - there is some great coral at your feet!

Barry and Diane were wondeful - very kind. Like other guests at Paradise found, we were lucky and got fresh tomatoes from the garden and a coconut cake. We felt so taken care of! We were making lemon bars late one evening and realized we'd forgotten to buy flour but Diane bakes and had flour handy. (Such a lovely old fashioned ritual, borrowing flour from the neighbors!) We spent six days and were sad to leave! Can't wait to go back!

Lovely home, lovely people.

Immaculate home with snorkeling from the patio

  • 5 of 5

This home was immaculate and very well stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. The owners live next door and are available to answer any questions and offer suggestions for sight seeing, groceries, etc. There are 2 patios, one with steps going into the water. A small coral reef and several walls are nearby with many types of fish. A spotted eagle ray visited almost every morning and evening. The water is crystal clear and underwater photography comes out beautiful. If you like being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves, love snorkeling, and having all of your needs met, this is an ideal VRBO.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back at Paradise Found again someday. We would like to let our past and future guests know that two weeks ago we bought a new King Bed for the upstairs Bedroom also extended the dock so you will have more area to sunbathe.

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.
