Our Secret Garden Villa is nestled beneath poinciana and bougainvillea, on 3 lush acres of tropical gardens at the western edge of New Providence, in an upscale gated community. An exquisite place from which to explore the island, retreat from the world, write, or just be. It is perfect for one or two, for writers and artists seeking inspiration and solitude, for nature lovers, or simply those who want comfort in a luxurious island environment. We welcome all.

The space
A dreamy king bed is at the center of our villa which looks out onto the gardens. It is completely self contained, with a small, light-filled kitchen, a shower and toilet ensuite, a desk, and ample sofas for relaxing. Sliding doors open onto a sparkling freshwater pool and from there wide open gardens with infinite varieties of plants, flowers, and birds. We are only a few miles away from restaurants and a state of the art cinema. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and wonderful for taking walks at sunset. For an additional fee, guests can rent our golf cart to meander through the neighborhood or drive to the marina and restaurant nearby.

Guest access
The villa is just across the way from our home. You are welcome to the pool, the gazebo close by, and the gardens that stretch back through several acres of tropical forest to a small vegetable garden. We think of our gardens as a little bit of paradise.

I am a writer living, writing, and teaching between the Bay Area, California, and Nassau, Bahamas. I moved to the Bay Area in 2005 from my hometown of Nassau. Since then, I have grown to love this place - the landscape, the cultural diversity, the many kinds of artistic expressions, the people. And of course I love the Bahamas and its rich culture, particularly its artistic communities. I count myself very fortunate to have two homes. When I am not traveling, I am at home reading, working on my newest book project, cooking, and gardening. Perhaps because I am an artist myself, I love creating spaces - sanctuaries - in which people can find solitude, inspiration, and time to create. I look forward to hosting you. -Helen Klonaris
