We found Sandy Palms on the internet and after reading a few reviews booked our ten day stay. After a grueling day of travel we were met by the owner, Peter, at the house. We were a bit nervous at this point, hoping that we made a good choice but Peter immediately put us at ease with his friendly, welcoming demeanor. After a look at Hooper's Bay in the back yard of the property, we checked out the suite and Peter offered to drive us to a local restaurant for dinner. The rest of the vacation was a blur of sunshine and quiet days on a nearly empty and practically private beach. Reef fishing and Spearfishing was a blast. We also made an effort to drive up to Exuma Point for their buffet and a visit with their pigs. I would also recommend a visit to Stocking Island for the Chat and Chill experience. Peter made every effort to ensure we were having a good time and had plenty of suggestions for activities. I can't recommend dealing with him enough. The property is well maintained and clean. The amenities are humble, yet effective (we stayed in the two room suite). The stove and refrigerator are small and team cooking involves a bit of elbow rubbing, but we managed to whip up some great meals, especially the snapper we caught on our fishing charter with Robert's Island Adventures. If you are so motivated, there is a grocery, liquor and butcher store all located within walking distance, less than ten minutes each way. A car is not absolutely necessary unless you want to go to the northern part of the island. A taxi to Georgetown should only be around ten bucks. If you really want to save, you could even hitch. The locals we met were all very friendly, this is a small island. You will notice that every third guy is named Elvis Rolle, which is pretty awesome. Bring some extra trash bags, there are only a few provided and they are spendy at the store. You'll want to keep the trash out in this climate. Bring more sunscreen than you'll think you will need, too. You can practically burst in to flames in the summer sun. If you are looking at doing a movie night, bring DVD's or downloaded movies as the Internet on the island is pretty unreliable. Be prepared to take everything at a slow pace, you will learn the meaning of Island Time when you order food and deal with people! Have fun.
