Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently stayed in the Dreamsicle home while vacationing on Elbow Cay. Jamie Williams picked up us from the ferry and took us straight to our home away from home. The kitchen was very well stocked and the home was clean and inviting. We had no issues that required service during the week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dreamsicle and hope to return soon.

Fun and Sun, Aqua Blue Waters and Beautiful White Sandy Beaches

  • 5 of 5

I am a frequent flyer to the island of Elbow Cay and Dreamsicle Cottage. I love it there. The house is located at the best end of the island, near Seaspray Marina where we got to watch our first Jundkanoo parade (Bahamian celebration). The house had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing on the front porch. If you open the windows you can hear the crashing of the Atlantic Ocean waves. There is a deck owned by Dreamsicle right on the beach. You can walk on the beach but it's not really a swimming beach...it's the ocean. I've already booked my time for next year, May is a great time to go, not too hot... oh did I mention we caught a 40 lb. Mahi.... Can't wait to get back there...

My Perfect winter home again in 2016/2017

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place to spend the Canadian winters. Love its location and its privacy/quietness. The Atlantic side beach is gaining back its sand and is such a great place to spend time with my Labradoodles and to collect shells and sea glass. The house is just perfect for my needs and Jamie is such a help. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to spend the winter there for years to come.

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!
