“Wonderful stay!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2019 for a stay in May 2019

We enjoyed our two night stay at Barb and Jack’s beautiful home. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. There were so many small touches that made this stay so memorable, from the delicious appies when we arrived, chocolates on the bed, fresh cookies and beverages in our spacious living room. The bed was comfortable and we had privacy. The breakfasts looked like pictures from a cooking magazine and tasted even better. Barb was so gracious, she also was very informative on things to do while we were visiting the area. I highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.

Definitely comfortable as far as the living arrangements. Not a separate living quarters as the owners are downstairs but they keep to themselves. Every morning you are treated to restaurant worthy breakfasts and if taking a day trip will be offered a picnic basket to help with your adventure. The view they used to have is now a peek-a-boo from a couple of windows, as there is construction across the street that has wiped most of it out. As I am a dog lover, the sheep dogs to play with were an added bonus. A short walk will get you to the beach for shell hunting or just chillin' with your favorite book. Very central to shopping and the highway for excursions around the island. Worth a try on your next island excursion.

Comfortable bed, tasteful decorations, delicious breakfast, beautiful beach, friendly hostess...... all contributes to this place not just a B&B, but a place you feel like home. Of course the lovely sheepdog Ele is a sweetheart you won't forget. We stayed here for 3 nights. Despite the cold and windy weather, we felt warm and relaxed. Thank you, Barb, for your effort to make our trip memorable.

My husband and I stayed with another couple at Ele's Escape B & B by the Sea for three nights in October. We were warmly welcomed by Barb and her beautiful sheepdog, Ele, and were immediately treated to snacks and beverages as we took in this beautifully decorated home. Barb's special touches were everywhere, and her decorating style reflects her world travels and her love of elephants. We also met Barb's husband, Tom, and from the beginning felt that we were guests in their private home....which we were! Barb's breakfasts were amazing, and beautifully presented, from the chocolate crepes with fresh fruits and "Forbidden Cream" to a delicious veggie quiche and Crabby Eggs Benedict with apple and brie scones. Barb's special touches were everywhere...on the beautifully decorated table, the nightly chocolates nestled in a seashell with a different message each night, and anything we could possibly need or want during our stay. Barb provided many suggestions for things to do and places to visit on the island, along with restaurant suggestions in the area. We really felt spoiled and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Barb and her husband Jack...such interesting and lovely people.
