Hidden treasure in Bahamas!!
Submitted: August 14, 2012
Stayed: July 2012
My husband and I rented the studio apartment in Coral Sands. I chose this rental in the internet mainly for the beach (looking at comments and photos) and for the location in the island. We had travel to most of all the islands in the Caribbean and found this beach on Hooper’s Bay one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. The location is perfect near George Town, to all stores, marina, banks, etc and to the airport but still in a nice and quiet area of the island. Once we arrived we found that we chose the perfect place to stay, no regrets at all, the house is beautiful, the views are breath taken (we had 7 perfect sunsets in a row!!), lushly tropical gardens, clean and very well equipped apartment, few steps from my room to the beach (white sand, crystal blue water, calm ocean, perfect breeze, no slopes entering the water, no seaweed, quiet, and very private), and it was just perfect. And mostly the service at Coral Sands, Peter, the owner of the house, he made us feel at home, any information or any thing we needed he helped us with. He does not bother you at all if you want to be alone, if you need him, he lives nearby and can call him, and he will help you right away. We felt like this was our house to enjoy for the week. We were able to tour the whole house since we want to come back with the family; the house has everything you may need and more. It is decorated very tropical, still elegant, the views are perfect, even from the master room you could see the sunset w/o getting up.
We also rented the car from Peter, saved money and it was exactly what we needed, he accommodated us to our needs so we were comfortable and enjoyed his property to the max. I really want to come back soon with my big family, we are already recommending this place to our island lover friends. We did something always wanted to do in an island, we only could have done here, to bbq fresh fish on the beach at night and have a wonderful time. I got the BBQ grill from Peter, the fish from fresh catch from a fisherman near Santana ( just ask around and anyone can help you with that information), charcoal from the lumber store a couple of minutes drive from the house, some beers, Habana Club rum, and a Cuban cigar from the liquor store next to Smitty's.
Great Exuma is not known by many and it is a hidden treasure in the Caribbean, please keep these gifts to us clean and safe so we can all enjoy its beauty for many year
