Directly located on the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach, this modern & spacious home is designed to maximize the pleasures of island living with large outdoor decks, all facing the sea. Many of our guests love the spaciousness and friendly feel of the house yet it maintains its luxury atmosphere & the Master Section is an ideal honeymoon setting.
The beach is safe & sandy and perfect for sunning, swimming or just relaxing! Even turtles can be seen from the beach. Also enjoy using our KAYAKS to explore the calm bay & nearby cays.
Convenient to the airport (5 miles) and Georgetown (3 miles) and a wide range of restaurants and local shops are within a short walk or drive.
We are the owners who live nearby and will greet new arrivals to the premises to ensure the property and local facilities are explained. We will also arrange the Taxi transfer from the airport & make any local car hire arrangements required. We are always at hand to be helpful but not intrusive.
Hoopers Bay Beach: The house is privately set on what is arguably one of the best beaches on the whole of Exuma. It is perfectly safe for children, whatever ages and is a wonderful spot for relaxing.
For smaller groups - the Studio Apartment can be let separately at a very reasonable price whilst the 2 bedroom Apartment Section is ideal for a small family with 2 children or two couples.
We can also combine these two parts with an interlinking internal staircase creating a 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom larger unit. See the RATES section for these prices whilst the entire villa of 4 bedrooms/ 3.5 bath sleeping 8 people is $833 per night (Minimum 6 nights) or $4995 per week + Tax. This gives large groups of families or friends the space, comfort & privacy of the villa. Our aim is to provide the best choice for your accommodation at the most economical rate for your group size.

We ( Betty& Peter ) moved to Exuma from England in 1999 having spent some years exploring different parts of the world to find the best place to enjoy our retirement We love Exuma so much that we live here year round except when we vacation or visit family & friends back in the UK.
Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this villa in 2003
After several years living on the island we wanted to find an ideal beach plot where we could design and have built our ideal beach villa. We eventually found the right plot on what is regarded as the best beach in Exuma ( certainly Realtors price it as the premium beach !! ) and with the detailed help of an internationally well regarded architect we set about having it constructed.
Hoopers Bay is the calmest ( and therefore safest ) beach on Exuma as it is protected from the prevailing winds so that swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and other relaxing pleasures for all ages can be fully enjoyed .We even have Green Turtles in the bay for guests to meet !
The 1/2 mile long beach is just a few steps through our tropical garden whilst from the expansive covered decks of the villa there are wonderful sea views.
House was in perfect location on an awesome, quiet beach that was calm and perfect for the little ones. Pictures on website of house and view from house to beach do not do it justice. Much better. Exuma was great - plenty of restaurants, great boat day trip available, rented a boat for the day, hit Chat n Chill, Tropic of Cancer Beach, Santanas Grill (& bakery next door), Coco Plum Beach. All people were very friendly. Peter was an excellent source of information and very helpful during our stay. House split into Master area, 2 bedroom apt and studio. All nice and separate views of water. Can pick any combination easily as they can be interconnected or separated as needed. Great for families. We used Master with extra bed and crib for us with two little ones and the studio for Grandparents and it worked out great. If you want to get away from it all, this is your place. If you want lots of nightlife and casinos, wrong place. Enjoy.
This beautiful house was a perfect retreat for three families. Plenty of space for everyone. Our host Peter made it incredibly easy to get settled in and graciously provided great advice about this island paradise.
Our group of 8 (2 families) with 4 adults and two kids aged 5-14 had a wonderful time at Coral Sands Beach Villa. We rented the entire villa, which is just lovely and quite spacious, for one week. Each year we travel to the Bahamas or Caribbean with the same family and stay in a beachfront home. Everyone agreed that this house was the best place that we have stayed ever. The location of the home on the prestigious Hooper's Bay, the views from almost every room in the house and the quiet, safe beach with clear protected waters are what make this home truly outstanding. In addition, the owner Peter is nearby and very helpful in planning your daily outing and activities if you need his assistance. Besides the great home and beach, Hooper's Bay is less than 10 minutes from Georgetown and midway between the two ends of the island.
We spent our days boating, snorkeling, swimming, exploring an endless choice of isolated beaches, taking an ATV tour of the rarely visited western side of the island and of course eating.
The people of the island are also very friendly. Just a quick example.. I needed a birthday cake for one of the children's birthdays. I asked Ceturah, our server at Santana's and the owner's sister, where I might find a cake. She picked up her cell phone, dialed a friend and put me in touch with a local woman who bakes wonderful cakes. The following day, I had a beautiful and delicious birthday cake with personalized decorations delivered to the hardware store 1 minute from Coral Sands Beach Villa. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay and are a large group, I give Coral Sands Beach Villa my highest recommendation without hesitation.
We vistited to celebrate 50th and 18th birthdays. We wanted sun, relaxation, beautiful beaches and smiles. We got all of this - and more. The villa is fantastic, right on the most beautiful beach and the owners are great hosts and help in any way they can. The island is great for people who want to get away from the crowds. We're definitely going back next year...
Best beach and location on the island! The house is located on Hoopers Bay (best by far) and is centrally located to a market, liquor store, bank, and downtown Georgetown. We stayed in the Studio apartment for a week and it was perfect for our needs. Peter and Betty are extremely accommodating and available if you need them. The house is aesthetically pleasing as well as the landscaping. Very beautiful. We even watched sea turtles from the beach and great sunsets. For beach use, they have provided kayaks, floats for the water, plenty of lounge chairs and beach games. You really don't even need to leave the house if you don't need to. This trip was especially special to us because we got engaged there! I'm ready to return and hope to plan our next trip soon. Thank you again! Lilly & Scott
What a great place for a family vacation. Peter is a gracious host with a wealth of local knowledge. The house met all of our needs and is within yards of a private beach. THe house is very convenient to Georgetown where you can find several restaurants, boat rental, and a well-stocked market.
We had a mix of small children and i would highly recommend this house's location as it sits in the protected waters of Hooper's Bay. We knew we had made the right choice when we saw the windy, unprotected beaches on the Northern parts of Great Exuma. Although they are all beautiful, they are far less suited for children.
We can't wait to get back!, thanks Peter and Betty.
The property is fantastic, beaches are stunning, and the sea life is amazing. Peter was a great host and the pictures of the house do not do it justice.
If you are going to Exuma the best place to stay is at Coral Sands. Very close to town and amazing beach in the backyard.
Exuma as an island is great for families; there is not much night life or shopping but if you like boating, diving, and fishing this is the perfect island.
Highly recommend staying at Coral sands and personally i will be back again.
Nearby Georgetown offers a range of local shops, hotels, banks, powerboat rental and the ferry service to Stocking Island with great snorkeling or scuba diving opportunities.
Little Exuma has further wonderful beaches and off-shore cays, some which were used for filming 'Pirates of the Caribbean' - boat trips can be arranged to spend a day enjoying fishing, snorkeling or swimming from your own deserted island!
