At a time when there is so much that is challenging in our world, our Secret Garden Villa provides a safe and beautiful haven. Nestled within 3 acres of old growth tropical forest and gardens of lush poinciana and bougainvillea, in an upscale gated community, our villa is perfect for one or two, for writers and artists seeking inspiration and solitude, or simply those who want a staycation in a luxurious island environment. We welcome all, for short term stays, and longer live/work residencies.

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.

NOTE: We meticulously sanitize our villa to ensure the safety and health of all our guests.

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.
