About this home

Welcome to Gilly’s Dream. Your home away from home. Experience real Bahamian living in the quiet and safe subdivision of Colony Village Estate. Just off the main artery of the eastern end of the island, Prince Charles Drive, you are within a very short walking distance of a shopping plaza where you will find, conveniently, a large supermarket, Domino’s pizza, Wendy’s, a pharmacy, doctor’s office amongst others. Three minutes in the opposite direction is the post office, the police station, a government medical clinic and a number of churches. At Gilly’s Dream you are less than five minutes away by car from the nearest beach. Frequent buses into the downtown area and Paradise Island (Atlantis) are caught from bus stops only three minutes away. The Mall at Marathon is three and one half miles away right along the Prince Charles Drive corridor. Gilly’s Dream is where you want to spend a real Bahamian vacation away from the hustle and bustle of a resort.
Gilly’s Dream offers you comfortable sleeping for up to eight adults (in beds) with an additional 4 single folding cots. Our “Grand Room” is outfitted with one king size bed and a double sleeper sofa. “Gilly’s” is outfitted with a king size bed and “GrandMa’s” has a double bed setting. Each of these three lovely and well spaced apart rooms has its private bath, flat screen television, telephone and ductless air-condition. The general areas are central air-conditioned. Garage parking available. For groups of 6 guests or less, we are open to negotiating a reduced rate. Approach us!

    Amazing time at Gilly's Dream! Highly Recommend!

    Our dive club stayed at Gilly's Dream after our Blackbeard's dive liveaboard. Darville (homeowner) was an amazing host and arranged transportation for us much cheaper than we found ourselves. The home was clean, neat, and comfortable for our dive club (there were 11 of us who stayed). Walking distance to grocery center and center with Dairy Queen! 15-minute taxi from Nassau Harbor Club. We look forward to staying again next time we come to Nassau!

    Wonderful hosts and property

    The house was spacious and clean, but even more impressive was the kindness and attentiveness of the hosts. They went above and beyond in their efforts to help with transportation and logistics and it was greatly appreciated.

    Wonderful!

    Nous sommes une famille de 6 qui avons eu la chance d’etre logé chez M. Darville. Il y a amplement d’espace et de salle de bain pour tous! L’endroit est très bien entretenu et super propre. Darville et sa fille sont même venu nous chercher à l’aéroport avec une magnifique affiche souvenir au nom de notre famille :-) De plus, nous avons eu droit à un tour guidé de la ville. Darville nous a gentillement escorté à l’épicerie puis ensuite le lendemain à la marina. Le tout gratuitement. Darville et sa famille sont extrêmement accueillants, chaleureux et très disponibles. L’appartement est très propre et largement assez grande pour une grande famille. Nous avons tous adorés notre cour passage chez vous! Nous allons très fort probablement nous revoir :-). Je recommande cet endroit sans hésiter !
