About The Owner

We are Florida residence that love this island. We used to stay closer to town until we stayed on the south end, then we bought a home there we loved it so. We have 2 children (11,13) and feel it is very safe for them to cruise around

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dreamsicle cottage was so cute and well maintained. The loft and bath uptairs was perfect for our kids. It really gives you the feel of being in the islands because of the brilliant colors inside. The location near SeaSpray Marina was perfect as we ate breakfast there, used the internet and sat pool side. It's a 4 mile walk to town (we actually did that) but golf cart to get around the whole island is recommended. I would definetely stay again in the future. It's also near to the sea and beach.

Perfect home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently traveled to Elbow Cay and had the pleasure of finding the Dreamsicle. Jamie (the caretaker) was right on time to help us settle in. The house was in a perfect location, on the quieter side of the island, and very close to the most beautiful beach (Tahiti beach). I think you definitely need a golf cart due to it's distance from downtown. The house had everything needed for a comfortable stay, from beach towels to kitchen utensils. Wifi was reliable. The power did go out a few times one night, but it was out on the whole island and the Dreamsicle usually has a generator for backup (it was being fixed while we were there). Everything was super clean and tidy. We really felt like we were in our own home and can't wait to make a trip back! Cindi was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend a stay at the Dreamsicle!!

A great place to spend a Canadian winter

  • 5 of 5

Liked the location and the cottage - it had everything that my 2 Labradoodles and I needed. Located just down from the Sea Spray Resort & Marina, where we spent many winters together on our Gulfstar 49 MY Wet 'N Wild, allowing us to easily visit our boating and Elbow Cay based friends.

The dogs and I enjoyed many hours walking the near-by beaches and lane ways. Our rental golf cart gave us access to Hopetown and the further away Island's bar and grills.

I look forward to spending future Canadian winters here at the Dreamsicle.

Jamie and his wife .. provided me with all that I needed .. they were great!

Great get a way

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Hope Town was fun, relaxing, adventurous, everything a vacation should be. It was a pleasant arrival to Dreamsicle, the house was ready, clean and exactly what we expected. The owner was helpful in giving us details about the house and the island. Jamie the caretaker picked us up and was very helpful in getting us settled in on the island. The location is perfect, the golf cart made it fun to explore the island. SeaSpray was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we could walk there. Down town which is about a 15 min. golf cart ride was fun for shopping in a few boutiques. I will definitely go back and would stay at Dreamsicle once again!

Dreamsicle Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a cute and clean cottage! When we arrived everything was set up, Jamie had the air on and it was ready for a cocktail on the beautiful deck. The cottage was complete with everything we needed in the kitchen, beach towels etc... The location is great being close to Abaco Inn Restaurant which also rents kayaks and paddle boards, you can even take a lesson... which was very helpful for us novice. Of course Sea Spray Marina was a perfect place to keep our 23 ft rental boat, it was nice that we were able to use the pool there. Can't wait for our next vacation there.

Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

the Dreamsicle is in the perfect location. Just a couple minutes walk to the beach, Sea Spray Marina/restaurant & 2 houses away from where our brother & sis-n-law have a home.

This is our 3rd visit to the island but first time at Dreamsicle. It is by far heads & tails above the other places we've rented. I love the colorful wood beams & ceiling as well as the colorful decor.

I do think it would be helpful to have an a/c unit upstairs. Otherwise we look forward to returning next year to the Dreamsicle!!
