“Sparkles like a jewel in the sun...”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

as the lyrics in the Spanish Wells song go, aptly describes Spanish Wells and the Ocean Dreams beach house. From the moment we arrived at the dock and were met by Jody, we knew we were in for a treat.

Jody gave us a short tour of the island so we could get our bearings, and then, driving up to the beach house, it was like a dream come true. The pictures, while all accurate, do not do the place justice - you really must see it to believe it. When we took our first look out the patio doors, our breath caught, were we dreaming or was this for real??!! And there on the kitchen table was a scrumptious home made lemon meringue pie from Tara. What a welcome!

Only being 2 of us there was more than enough space; we picked the bedroom facing the water, could hardly wait to see if I really could see the stars from the bed, (as advertised) and yes, I did see stars (hee hee). Loved the upper and lower decks, both for morning coffee and night stargazing. The 2 full bathrooms are a good size, with lots of fluffy towels and bonus, even bathrobes. Though we did not use it, there was also a washer and dryer. The kitchen is well stocked, even including storage containers for leftovers. We chose to eat out for breakfast and supper, but had we chosen to eat in everything we would've needed was there. Will say the blender is powerful enough to make smoothies. There was a new 5 gallon water jug waiting for us, at the end of the week we were to either replace it or leave $5, we chose to leave the money. Didn't turn on any of the 3 tv's all week, though we certainly appreciated the wifi - had no shame bragging about our bit of paradise to those at home....Lots of beach towels in the laundry room too.

The front deck is large, step off it and sink your toes into that luscious soft sand. 40 steps through the dunes and you're on the beach. Go right or left? Ah, such decisions with no wrong choices.

Was great fun bombing around on the golf cart. Travelled all over SW and Russell Island, replacing the gas at the end of the week ($10). Had intentions of going over to North Eleuthera but that never happened. We were quite content to soak in the comforts and surroundings of this beautiful beach house. The beach is spectacular, the most people we ever saw in a day was 10. Peace and quiet was what we were seeking and that is exactly what we received.

Jody was helpful through all stages of planning, helpful in answering our questions pre-arrival, and arranged our round-trip transportation from/to ELH. Tara even went the extra mile (literally) picking up our luggage (accidentally removed at GHB) at the dock the next morning and delivering it right to our doorstep. They are great hosts and take great pride in their homes and community.

“Great hosts on a safe, friendly island”

My sister and I travel together once a year to reconnect. We leave kids and husbands behind and look for destinations that are fun, safe, and friendly. We truly enjoyed our experience on this tiny unique island, and the owner and his wife could not have been nicer. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make the overall eight night stay very convenient and enjoyable. They arranged a taxi at the airport and also the water taxi to take us across from Eleuthera to Spanish Wells. A golf cart was provided as well as portable beach chairs and kayaks. There is so much to do in this area and we also arranged for a rental to car for three days to visit the beautiful beaches of Eleuthera.

The owners checked in with us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed and even stocked the house with grocery items as we arrived on a Sunday and all stores were closed. Usually owners charge a fee to do this but not here. All the owner said he needed was equal reimbursement for the items. This is not a luxury, touristy destination but a warm, friendly, welcoming place and I hope to return soon!
