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 New Providence

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.

Paradise Found is the perfect name for this property

Verified Stay

We had a fantastic stay at Barry and Diane's Paradise Found. Barry and Diane were so helpful from the time we booked our stay. Excellent recommendations for dining, directions to where we wanted to go, and just the most genuine hospitality we have ever encountered.

The property is in pristine condition. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking utensils, pots and pans, toaster, microwave etc. We went to the supermarket and got supplies to make breakfast every morning. They have a grill on the upstairs patio and we grilled out one evening. They have extra bed linens, towels, and just everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay.

We enjoyed our time at Paradise Found and we want to thank Barry and Diane for being the ultimate host and hostess.

We had read previous reviews before we booked and we now have first hand experience on why Barry and Diane always receive a 5 star review!

Sincere thanks!

Stacy and Mitzy Oliver

There is a reason that Barry & Diane consistently receive 5 star reviews on VRBO.

The property and the owners are outstanding. This was our first visit to Nassau, and we were looking for a quiet place that would safely accommodate our 19 month-old son. Barry & Diane are about the nicest folks you will ever meet, and the house has been kept up immaculately despite a hurricane that devastated parts of the island in October. Swimming from the back deck was a highlight, as was watching the sunrises & sunsets from the upper balcony. You’ll definitely want to rent a car to get around, as this location is away from the resorts and touristy areas (a real bonus in our opinion). The kitchen is completely stocked, complete with spices and any tool that you will need. Linens, bath & beach towels, etc. are plentiful and look brand-new. We immediately felt at home upon arrival, and Barry was there to give his insider knowledge on which beaches to visit, grocery stores with the best prices, etc. We hope to visit Paradise Found again sometime soon.

Barry is the nicest. We had an amazing and relaxing time. The house was clean, and the views are breathtaking.

We took the suggestion from Barry to use Cheryl's taxi. Marvin, aka "the big guy", was awesome, and so much fun. Highly recommend. :)

Paradise Found is a beautiful home with a view of the ocean.

Paradise Found is a beautiful property. It was very clean and freshly painted. The property owners, who reside next door, were very kind and generous while providing privacy for our family. The home had plenty of towels, glasses, and bedding for our family of five. We loved the location as it allowed us to be emersed in the Bahama culture and see much of the island - rather than just the vacation resort side of the Bahamas. I would return to Paradise Found if I have the opportunity to return to the Bahamas.

Right on The Water!

We really enjoyed our week at Paradise Found. The townhouse was spotless and Barry and Diane were wonderful hosts! Felt very safe in the nice, quiet neighborhood. Grocery store was very close and easy to get to. Got to tour Barry's garden and pick fresh limes! Had a wonderful time and would rent this townhouse again!

excellent, clean, quiet beach home

My wife and I just got home from vacationing at Paradise Found. If you are looking for a quiet, safe, clean house that is literally 6 steps from the caribbean, then this is the place for you.

This is our 3rd trip to New Providence Island in the last year, each time using a different VRBO rental. By far, this one was the best. To our surprise, the house was actually better than the pictures depicted. It was quite clean and spacious and had everything we needed for a quiet, relaxing vacation. The provided soaps, towels (more than enough), beach lounges, paper products, and even sugar (and splenda!) was a pleasant surprise. The gas grill was on the upstairs porch to cook out on. There was a day bed in the living room for relaxing during the evening, and another bench/couch to nap on during the day. The washer/dryer (with detergent provided) was handy so as not to have to pack as many clothes for the week. There was even 5 gallon jugs of drinking water ready for us to use. For the sea, there were plenty of floats and the patio steps went directly into a sandy bottom.

The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood, but it felt even safer being connected to Barry and Diane's residence. However, we felt like we had the place to ourselves as the patios and lounge areas are very private. The upstairs porch felt like you were sitting right over the water. It was nice to get a courtesy call from Diane the 2nd day to see if we needed anything. I had read the reviews about Barry's garden, and it was very interesting seeing the fruit trees and smelling the fresh lemon grass and "Old spice tree". The highlights, though, were eating a "soppadillo" fruit right off the tree, and the fresh bananas he had waiting for us upon arrival.

Our idea of a "hectic" vacation is getting up, having coffee, and laying out in the sun or snorkling. This met all criteria. We saw a dolpin, stingrays, trigger fish, jacks, and other tropical fish and never had to go more that 15 feet from the back door!

Barry and Diane were excellent hosts and this vacation rental is definitely highly recommended and is a 5 star.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the excellent review so full of great information for our future guests. We are so glad you enjoyed the townhouse and your vacation. We try to do our best to make it comfortable for our guests but the view over the ocean and the sunrise in the morning are something that makes it really special. We enjoy sharing our garden and coconuts with our guests. Thanks again and hopefully you will be back in the future. Regards, Barry & Diane

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.
