The Darville's are such lovely people. They are very genuine and we couldn't have asked for a better host. They are very accommodating. Anything we needed they delivered. Their home is perfect. We had a large group and everyone was comfortable. Each bedroom has their own bathroom which makes it very very accommodating and convenient for everyone. Gilly's Dream is lovely. We were blessed to be apart of their daughter's dream. Their home is very peaceful and family oriented. Their home has everything you need. Its basically a home away from home. They have a grocery store which is within walking distance. We took taxis to go downtown and Paradise Island. When my family and I return we are definitely staying at Gilly's Dream which is Paradise!

It is a convenience place to stay for group of friends or family. Every room come with attached bath which is an added advantage to house. Cosy setting. It's take about 20 to 30 minutes to and from the city centre. Darville is a great host and very accommodating and pleasant to talk to. He pick us up from hotel and took us for shopping at the supermarket near the house and also send us to get our dinner at night. Great place to stay

Sambrianna & I were again so pleased to have your party stay with us, if ever so briefly. We look forward to your returning soon. We trust you have the best of boating weather for the remainder of your trip up there in the Abacos. Nothing can be better than sailing the Abacos!

Darville is a wonderful host. He has a beautiful spacious wheelchair friendly home and also provided our family with in-house transportation. The home was in a quiet and safe neighborhood. We feel very fortunate to have found his place, it made our vacation more personal. Our family can't thank them enough. Great Nassau Stay!

Response from Darville:
Ann, it was a real delight to have your family share this special time with us; the second anniversary of Gilly's passing. We were particularly inspired by the love and care shown to Keegan as we were reminded of the opportunity we had to care similarly for Gilly, especially in her final year and one half. We just wish for your family continued blessings and much happiness and the strength it takes to care one for the other.
