Group Trip and TwinPalms was Great!
Our group universally agreed that our trip to Exuma and stay at the beautiful Twin Palms beach house was the best vacation of our lives! We spent many hours just lounging on the beautiful, beach front patio, enjoying the view and the sound of the waves, reminiscing about our previous day’s and night’s adventures. The house itself was all we could ask for… beautifully decorated, well equipped with all the necessities ( ample beach and bathroom towels, washer /dryer, full kitchen, etc etc.), and the 3 bedrooms, one in a separate “pod”, made for several sleeping options.
While we were there with a group of friends, with multiple beds in two of the rooms, this setup would work equally well for 1-2 families who wanted the flexibility to make their own meals, a beach at their doorstep, and a short drive to both the airport and into Georgetown.
In terms of Exuma, it was indeed a pleasant surprise. The locals are wonderful… extremely friendly and helpful. There’s really no situation you could get yourself stuck in that you couldn’t find someone to help! It’s also nice that there are so many fellow Canadian tourists there… if you’re as lucky as we were, you may forge friendships that don’t end when you leave the island.
Some highlights I’d highly recommend:
- A quick water taxi ride will get you to the Chat ‘N Chill. The conch salad was to die for… so healthy, you could lose weight eating it. My husband couldn’t get enough of it, he wanted to go back for more every day!
- A boat tour of the surrounding keys is a must… we went with Harris, from Sugar Adventure Company, and couldn’t have had a better day.
- At first blush, the Fish Fry looks like a hap-hazzard group of shacks, some open, some not, but don’t let appearances fool you. This place is definitely your best bet for a great local meal… it’s the go-to place for locals and tourists alike, and you may find yourself surprised with how your night unfolds.
In short, my friends and I would return to Exuma in a heartbeat, and in fact, some of us already have plans to do so!
