Comfortable, Expansive, Private, Missing Nothing

  • 5 of 5

Great place and great stay. House easily accommodated 10 (with permission from the owner). Has everything you would ever need, and then some. I love how Bob and his family share the items they use when they are there with you so that you want for nothing. Towels, linens, cloth napkins, cookware, knives, olive oil, coffee, tea (lots of tea!), tools (in very neat order), bug spray, flash lights, kayaks (yes kayaks), and more porches than you can shake a stick at.

Truly a hidden gem of an island and a hidden home within that.

If you want to experience solitude just minutes away from "town" then you won't find a more hospitable home.

Bob, the owner, was very communicative and checked in multiple times before and during the trip.

The Most Beautiful, Idyllic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot adequately express how truly wonderful Bob and Josee's home is; from the spacious, three cottage layout, the magnificent pool, to the spectacular vistas (Sea of Abaco; abundant stars at night), my wife and I could not possibly imagine a nicer setting to enjoy a week in the Abacos with our family. We've stayed at Four Seasons properties, Ritz Carlton, Penisula, etc., but having just experienced what Dreams End Too provides, we would hands down state that this experience surpasses those easily. There was simply nothing that wasn't handsomely provided; every detail, every amenity, every need was thought through meticulously and lovingly - a place where one could truly relax and enjoy a wonderful surrounding without "noise" or having to worry about anything. We had easy access to local restaurants (Orchid Bay, Grabbers, Nippers, etc.), beautiful beaches, and nearby coral heads (we went to snorkel at Fowl Cay several times by boat; easy access). There was more than enough to keep a family with two teenage boys busy with plenty of uptime and downtime. The internet service (wifi) in the home is very good, which really eliminated the need to use expensive cellular service (to the extent one needs to check email...). There is a VOIP phone to call the US free of charge. Our evenings were spent basically hanging out and watching the Rio Olympics, which we had via satellite in HD. The house and its surroundings are ably looked after by "Doc" and Maria who couldn't have been more courteous or hospitable. I'm not sure which I'm going to miss more: the unbelievably comfortable sleep each night (on the softest sheets on the planet), the quiet evenings stargazing, or the solitude and quiet contentment we four enjoyed together each day, unplugged and at peace. We will most certainly be back! I cannot recommend Dreams End Too highly enough. You will find Bob and Josee incredibly responsive and attentive, rest assured. A pleasure and a privilege to share their home. Thank you!! John & Cindy G.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It is a pleasure sharing our home away from home with families who "get it" about enjoying one another away from hustle and bustle of our modern life style. We look forward to your next visit. Josee & Bob

Beyond a perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect time, in a perfect place, for us! Truly, beautifully decorated home--nothing is missed . Everywhere you look there is attention to detail beyond compare. We have traveled extensively and would have to say this was the pinnacle of relaxation and beauty!

The home was stocked beyond belief--pack your clothes---and I mean bathing suits and underwear--nothing other than toothpaste is needed for this beautiful home!

We will be back!

If I could give it 10 stars I would!!

Exceeding All Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from nothing short of fantastic stay at Dreams End Too! Everything is as it appears in the photo's, even better! Beautifully decorated, great location, spotless, tons of kitchen utensils, towels, and toiletries. Bob is so easy to work with and could not have been more accommodating! Make sure you use Troy of Dive Guana for a snorkeling trip, fantastic & knowledgeable local!
