Amazing beach and relaxation spot!

Ever have one of those "too good to be true" moments? You book something and it's not at all what you expected? Coral Sands, Exuma is NOT one of those moments. The photos on the website just don't do justice to the property and the beach- it far exceeded our expectations!!! A quiet beautiful beach with crystal clear water, immaculate house, spectacular view and superb hosts and service cannot begin to describe what you will experience during your stay here. This is worth every dollar spent and will be stress-free from landing to departure!

Owner's Response: We were truly happy that your stay at our Luxury Beach House was so memorable - especially as you had been waiting a year since originally booking.

It was also great that you were able to enjoy so much snorkeling in Hoopers Bay and were even able to catch your own lobster to cook for supper.

My wife and I always try to make each and every guest have a very special visit to Exuma. All our guests are especially important to us - from the moment we greet them on arrival then if required during their stay, help with additional information on activities also the best places to eat and other special requests.

Always sad to say goodbye and we hope we have helped create wonderful memories to either last a lifetime or until another visit.

Fantastic home

We stayed a week at Coral Sands and loved it. The home is beautiful and on an amazing bay that was kid friendly. The pictures don't do it justice - it's paradise. One huge plus was the hospitality of the owner Peter. We were given great info in person in terms of places to go, restaurants etc. Above the normal treatment for renting a house for sure. We hope to go back next year.

Delightful!

  • Submitted: Jan 21, 2011

We stayed in the main house and the apartment for one delightful week! My only complaint is that it was too short (next time it will be longer).

Peter and Betty are the most delightful hosts. They were so responsive when we were making travel plans, unbelievably generous with their time and making arrangements to ensure you have the perfect trip.

The house is wonderful - livable, nicely furnished/stocked and well taken care of. It's a really short walk to the beach (feels like your own private beach), lots of open spaces and patios that equal good spots for enjoying the view and your traveling companions.

The island is great - definitely off the beaten path, but with lots unique and fun local spots up and down the island. And a few local characters - look for Bahama Obama, President of the Dance floor! Exhuma is filled with some of the friendliest people I've ever encountered while traveling.

Looking forward to our next stay with the Oxleys!

Heaven on earth at Coral Sands

Heaven on earth at Coral Sands

Our group of six women stayed at Coral Sands for a week in December, 2010. The home is comfortable, open and bright, and right on a beautiful beach. The Oxleys were so generous to share their insights about the different activities we could participate in while in the island, and even prepared all of the logistical arrangements to make them happen (sea kayaking, island trasnportation, water taxi, restaurant recommendations and reservations, etc.). Our experience was the perfect blend of solitutde, relaxing, and adventure. The Oxleys are the perfect hosts! We're already dreaming about returning, this time with the husbands and kids. The house was great for a girls' week, and would be great for a family as well. It has reliable wireless, so if you have to stay in touch with folks back home you easily can.

Exuma will be our next home!!

  • Submitted: Jul 25, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
We just wanted to write and thank you for all your assistance in our recent visit. Your knowledge and wisdom about Exuma and the surrounding islands have given us so much to think about. We can definitely see our dream becoming a reality.

Just the short time we have spent on Exuma has made us fall in love with the island and the life down there. Even taking into account the fact we were on holiday, it is still amazing how quickly we adjusted to the lifestyle. Coming back, we both found ourselves looking around and saying that there was nothing here that we would honestly miss. Exuma will be our next home.

Thank you for all you have done for us and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Best Beach Holiday - ever!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 14, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
My wife & I and our two young children (aged 5 & 3) booked Coral Sands for the safe sandy beach and lots of opportunities to relax and enjoy ourselves in nearby Georgetown for a very special birthday vacation for my wife.

From the word GO Betty & Peter made all our arrangements as smooth and stress free as possible with our travel to Exuma and only after 30 minutes of arriving at Georgetown airport, we were all on the beach enjoying the most incredibly blue water.

Later on, a short walk along the beach allowed us to watch turtles!

The house was just as described and beautifully appointed and maintained although much of our time was spent at the beach or other places on the island.

A week went far too fast but we are already dreaming of returning later this year or 2011.

Thank you Betty & Peter for making our holiday SO special!

Idyllic Beach Location, comfortable accommodation

  • Submitted: May 17, 2010
  • Stayed: Mar 2010
Four weeks on Great Exuma staying at Hoopers Bay was perfect. This was my second trip to the island and it still came up to all its expectations.
Taxi arrangements were made by Betty and Peter to meet us on our arrival at the airport and deliver us to Hoopers Bay.
The Beach Villa was just perfect for two of us in the studio annexe with our family in the main part of the house.
It was very well equipped for our needs.
The location was idyllic-a 50 metre walk along a sandy path through the garden filled with bougainvillea and onto the most beautiful beach. Uncrowded with white sands and turquoise and safe waters Hoopers Bay must be one of the best beaches on Exuma.
Located about 4 miles from George Town it was situated perfectly for access to shops, banks
and the fantastic music festival which took place during our stay but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
We liked absolutely everything about the island especially our success with the famous bone
fishing.

Living a dream

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 18, 2010
  • Stayed: Mar 2010
We have been this year (april 2010) for the second time to Great Exuma where we decided to get married. We have chosen to stay in Coral Sands, one of the most beautiful beachfront villas of the island located in Hooper's bay.
This location is really very convenient: close to airport, close to downtown (Georgetown) and, since it is right in the middle of Exuma, you can easily reach from there, all the most beautiful beaches in the islands.
The villa is huge and beautifully furnished in a colonial style, it remembers me some of the places I lived in West Africa. It has all possible amenities and facilities and, moreover, Peter and Betty Oxley (the owners) are always more than helpful to fulfil your possible requests.
The perfect position of Coral Sands allows to access the beach in few steps and, believe me, when you get up in the morning and walk on one of the most beautiful beaches of Exuma, and have a swim in those crystal clear waters (turtles and dolphins swim there too...), it is really priceless.
We have also enjoyed the colourful garden Peter and Betty very kindly offered us for our wedding ceremony.
Our two weeks stay in Coral Sands worked out as a little paradise: we lived our dream. Everything was so easy and efficient and Peter (who arranged for us not only our wedding but also extra services like taxies, car and boat rental) gave us advice on new restaurants, sport spots (we adore kitesurfing), day trips etc.
I'm sure we will get there again, and again.

Wonderful Stay!

  • Submitted: Apr 4, 2010
  • Stayed: Nov 2009
It's pleasure write this feedback for me because
this place is magnificent and Peter and Berry are
two person very friendly and available that helped
us to have a full immersion with the island and to
enjoy all the best place of Exuma.
I very reccomend this location to eyeryone that
looking for long white beach with no people, sea
with all tonality of blue and quite.
The apartment was very comfortable with two big
bedroom, one restroom and beatifu lounge and its
position is wonderful beacuse is direcly on Hooper
Bay beach.
We have rented also a car from Peter beacuse
without it you are not able to explore all island
and i suggest to rent it.
We raccomand to visit little Exuma and especially
to have a lunch to Santana. There you can organize
a visit to Sand Point on extreme south and this is
the location where has been filmed Pirate of
Caribbean II and III.
For all Italian there is a good combination of
Flight with Air France from Rome to Miami and then
we have gotten a internal flight with Continental
from Fort Lauterdale for to reach George Town on
the same day.
Thanks a lot to Peter and Betty for all and i hope
to see you on the futer for another fantastic trip.
If you want other information please contact me.
Ciaooooo

FANTASTICHE BAHAMAS

  • Submitted: Apr 4, 2010
  • Stayed: Jan 2010
Io, mia moglie e i nostri 3 figli di 8, 6 e 4 anni
siamo stati al Coral Sands dal 31 Dicembre al 7
Gennaio. Betty & Peter sono gentilissimi e
premurosi (siamo arrivati ad Exuma il 31 Dicembre
in serata e ci hanno fatto trovare l'occorrente per
la prima colazione dell'indomani, primo dell'anno,
pronta in frigorifero.
L'appartamento ha un eccellente rapporto
costo/qualità; è ampio spazioso, bello e .... ha il
giardino che finisce in uno splendido mare; inoltre
l'abbiamo trovato pulitissimo, provvisto di cucina
(completamente attrezzata, piano cottura,
frigorifero, freezer, microonde), salotto con
televisione e divano, due camere con aria
condizionata, bagno con doccia, lavatrice,
asciugatrice e internet wi-fi !!! inoltre ha una
enorme veranda affacciata sul mare.
L'appartamento si trova a pochi kilometri dalla
capitale dell'isola GeorgeTown, insomma, una
sistemazione perfetta, adatta a tutte le esigenze
ed in particolare alle famiglie un po' numerose
come la nostra.
Peter provvede anche al noleggio dell'auto ed è un
eccellente e premuroso consulente per tutte le
informazioni turistiche sulle Bahamas.
Se avremo la fortuna di tornare alle bahamas,
sicuramente torneremo da Betty & Peter More...
