Unique artist studio in 19th century building in the city center. Immerse yourself in Nassau’s art, history and culture!

The space
Welcome to our beautiful old building in the heart of downtown Nassau!

Our unique artist studio is located in a secluded courtyard space. This 200+ year old building was the annex of the main house that once sat on the front of this property. This annex served as the kitchen for the main house and still has original fireplace where food was prepared. The annex has been restored and repurposed as an art gallery and studio space by internationally renowned Bahamian artist, Antonius Roberts. It serves as a community art space where creative people gather. Hillside House is very serene and peaceful even though it is in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown. The exposed limestone walls and paint splattered concrete floors add to the studio’s charming character. All year round the weather is beautiful and you can enjoy the romantic courtyard filled with local orchids. The courtyard also hosts our bar Tuesday to Sunday evenings until 8PM.

The studio space is filled with our favourite odds, ends and a healthy collection of art books. The studio walls are also adorned with original artwork by Bahamian artists. You are always welcome to pop next door and view the gallery’s current exhibition. Come and be inspired by the island!

There are two double beds in the loft space. The studio has it's own bathroom with a spacious shower. The kitchenette contains a mini fridge, coffee/tea maker, toaster, and convection microwave. All cooking dishes/utensils provided.

Where you’ll be

Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas

In the 19th century only the wealthy were afforded the opportunity to dwell in the stately homes on Cumberland Street. Many of the homes in this area have since been repurposed as businesses, restaurants, museums and artist spaces. It has become a vibrant and eclectic neighbourhood, which attracts visitors looking to soak up authentic Bahamian culture. Hillside House is a five minute walk to downtown Nassau and nearby Junkanoo beach, but far away enough to a hidden gem.

I enjoy making guests feel welcome, comfortable, and completely at home. I love sharing insight and recommendations about my beautiful city, and I want you to feel like a local!

During your stay

The art gallery is open during business hours Tuesday through Saturday so, someone is always be available if you need anything. I would be more than happy to share where to go and things to do on the island.
