                                    Our stay at Betty and Peter Oxley’s Sandy Palms apartment was exceptional. By far the best part of the vacation was the beach on Hooper’s Bay in front of the property. We spent days relaxing on the beach, kayaking and paddle boarding on the crystal clear waters, and snorkeling with the fish and turtles near the shoreline. It’s a perfect beach for ending the day with sunset walks and reclining under the brilliant stars. It’s a fairly short walk to the local grocery store for food and beer supplies, which helped keep our dining costs down. The restaurants are also a bit further away and would require a car or taxi service, as there are no bicycle rentals available. Peter was very accommodating with transportation. He gave us an informative tour just after our arrival to familiarize us with the local stores and restaurants. Shirley’s was a good one; the mixed seafood was delicious. He later brought us a car to rent for a day of exploring the island and also arranged for transportation to a full day’s tour out to Thunderball Grotto. We were able to visit many of the places that had been recommended, including Santana’s for lobster and grouper, and Chat & Chill for delicious conch salad, fresh from the sea. We got to pet some sting rays and hand feed them our left-overs. Peter also helped arrange a great snorkeling trip for us to a small island, Fowl Cay. It served as our private beach for the morning, to relax on between snorkeling forays. Both the beach and the undersea life were gorgeous - highly recommended! With all of the great things to see and do, though, we would have to advise any visitors to do what we did for the last few days we were there- simply stay “home” at Hooper’s Bay and enjoy the beautiful scenery on display right in the back yard. Pick up some snacks and beer at the store, and enjoy long relaxing days on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

                                    Reality was even prettier than the pictures!

                                    My husband and I visited Exuma for the first time from 3/11-3/21 2017. We loved our beachfront apartment! It was just right for the two of us. The spacious deck was especially beautiful with it's view and hammock. And yes, the ocean color really is as shown in the HomeAway picture - or even prettier. A person could have made a lovely vacation just sitting on the deck. Peter Oxley was a gracious and helpful host; offering guidance on what to do, and where to find things. This is so important for a first visit to a location. At the time the HomeAway amenities description indicated there was a DVD player so we brought a series I had been wanting to watch but couldn't find time to do so at home. But the player didn't work. Peter made several attempts to find replacement cables and even brought in a different player. But none were compatible with the TV. You have to remember that Exuma is a more remote location than many Bahama islands and there definitely isn't a BestBuy or even a real electronics store. But we chose this island just because of it's less developed nature. We had planned to do more cooking in the full kitchen but didn't really do more than breakfast and occasionally lunch. There were very few staples in the kitchen - I think there were four spices including salt and pepper. And there were limited numbers of pans/cookie sheets. For renters looking to make more complex meal this may have been an issue. Probably best to bring some of the food supplies as certain things might be harder to find on the island and more expensive. The best stocked grocery store was in "downtown" Exuma. It is bright green and I think it's just called the Exuma Market. Our apartment was part of a larger house, but our section felt very private. The apartment has two bedrooms. As it was just the two of us we needed only one and the other was locked. Make sure you verify the number of bedrooms you need and the corresponding price for that number as that second bedroom can be rented separately from the apartment. It has its own door to the outside but I don't believe it had its own bathroom. We rented a car from the Oxley's which was very convenient and my husband who made all the arrangements thought the price was competitive. Remember that driving is different for us Americans - the steering wheel is on the right and they drive on the left side of the road. But you really need a car to get to restaurants, grocery stores, etc.
