About Tina & Ian
Welcome! We grew up in the islands and know Nassau and the surrounding islands like the back of our hands. We love Silk Cotton Cottage because it marries Old World charm with modern comforts. We especially like the laid back tropical setting with the convenience of nearby beaches, shops, restaurants and attractions. If we're not working, we're out in the boat exploring the outer islands, snorkeling and fishing or just relaxing in the crystal clear water off a beach at Rose Island. If the sea's rough, we putter around the garden, grill and chill. We have carved various unique spots out of the garden for relaxing and bird watching. In season, when the mangoes are ripe, the beautiful bright red and green Bahama Parrots feast in the silk cotton tree. We get Red Starts, Buntings and Warblers in the cooler months and the garden's always alive with humming birds and thrashers.
Why Tina & Ian chose Nassau
Silk Cotton Cottage is comfortable, well maintained and spotless. There's lots of green shady places to relax after a day in the hot sun or exploring Nassau. Proximity to the beach, downtown Nassau and Paradise Island makes this property special.

A Great Week In The Bahamas
This is a wonderful location, absolutely wonderful hosts and we had a blast! We loved starting our day reading in the living room with a cup of coffee and going off to explore in the afternoon. When we inevitably got sunburnt they very kindly offered aloe leafs from their own plant.
We loved Silk Cottage and hope to be back in the future!
Silk Cotton Cottage
My husband and I had a great stay at this property. Tina and Ian are easy to work with. Their knowledge of the island helped us plan and enjoy our stay. We will stay here again if we get the chance to return to Nassau.
We had a wonderful time visiting this beautiful island. What made it even better was our home away from home at the Silk Cotton cottage. The cottage was clean and comfortable, was surrounded by a gorgeous garden and provided everything we needed. Thank you to Tina and Ian for their hospitality. This is definitley a place we will return to.
Everything was wonderful. Tina and Ian are very kind and aim to please. We would go back.
Cutest cottage ever- great location
This was our first time to Nassau. I’m so glad we stayed @ the silk cottage. Cutest cottage ever and very clean. Plenty of space for the 2 of us. The landscape was beautiful. Tina @ Ian are wonderful hosts; so helpful and friendly. Tina directed us to all the right places on the Iskand. They took us out on their beautiful boat and Ian made the best conch salad & Tina made yummy chicken salad sandwiches. We will definitely be back and made new friends!!! Thank you.
