 Welcome to the home of Barbara Nico, a Bahamian-born grandmother who is well loved by all who know her. Barbara lives on the Nassau side of the bridge to Paradise Island – a 10-minute drive from some of the best beaches on the island.  She owns two friendly dogs who stay in the garden (they don't come indoors, so those with allergies need not worry). The only thing Barbara loves more than gardening is hosting guests from around the world.

A good friend and I stayed in the double room with Barbara for 8 days, and had a wonderful time. We were lucky to have Laura there for a few days early on during our stay. She is such a warm and kind person, and went out of her way to help us get settled. Barbara also went above …
