The 1/2 mile ( 1 km ) long sandy beach which slopes gently into the safe and calm protected water is ideal for children of all ages. On the beach we have loungers and chairs for our guests, beach shower, kayaks and if the sun gets too hot, then the coconut trees provide ample shade.

We moved from England in 1999 and in 2001 found the ideal, beachfront land on which to build our dream home 'Coral Sands'
Using a renowned architect to turn our ideas into plans, we oversaw the construction during 2002/2003.
We were keen to maximise the very special location of being centrally positioned on what is regarded as the best beach on the island and provide flexible accommodation for groups of 2 and up to 8 guests .We wanted to ensure that everyone has privacy with completely separate entrances in different parts of the building Now with our combined 30 years of welcoming guests to Exuma we are able to help with making the best suggestions to get the most out of a visit to the island
Betty & Peter Oxley-owners and personal operators since 1999 purchased this apartment in 2003
Hoopers Bay area is primary residential with just a few upscale home fronting the bay but convenient for local shops, the international airport ( 5 Miles ) and Georgetown ( 3 miles ).So for us, living on the island full time it was an ideal spot as well as for visitors.
Other visitors comments can best describe the pleasures of staying at this very special property and please read these on our HomeAway main advertisement.
We stayed at the Coral Sands and since we were the only ones there at the time we were upgraded to a larger area of the house! Since we had our daughter with us, this was definitely a huge upgrade! We had a wonderful time and the house is right on a fabulous beach. Our only complaint is the mosquitos, which is more of an island problem :-(

Our family of four stayed at Coral Sands for the second summer and once again had a spectacular vacation. Hoopers Bay's is one of the best beaches on the island and we typically had the whole beach to ourselves. Great swimming beach for kids as no matter the wind conditions always calm in this bay. We rented the cozy two bedroom apartment which is perfect for out family (two girls, 9 and 11). Great second floor covered deck porch overlooks the bay with a beautiful view and two big tables for outside meals. Peter and Betty, the owners, live close by and are accessible if needed and a great source of local knowledge which they are eager to share. We rented a car from Peter which is advisable for exploring the island. We will be back!
Siamo stati nelle due ville di Peter e Betty per ben tre volte
La cordialità , l'accoglienza e l'organizzazione dei proprietari è perfetta cosi come le ville ben tenute e fornite poste in luoghi paradisiaci .Peter e Betty vi guideranno con ottimi consigli alla scoperta delle isole vi organizzeranno i trasferimenti da e per l'aereoporto. Ci hanno anche assistito nel trasferimento da exuma a long island con un ottimo volo privato che in solo 20 minuti e allo stesso prezzo del volo di linea ci ha portati a long island e ritorno (con il volo di linea si perde tutta la giornata perche si deve passare da nassau)
Se volete visitare queste due splendide isole andate da Peter e Betty non rimarrete delusi
Grazie Peter and Betty per il sogno che ci avete regalato
We stayed in two villas Peter and Betty three times
The friendliness, hospitality and organization of the owners of the villas is perfect as well as well-maintained and equipped placed in the heavenly places. Peter and Betty will guide you with great tips to discover the islands will arrange transfers to and from the airport. They also assisted in the transfer to exuma in long island with a great private flight in only 20 minutes and at the same price of the scheduled flight took us to Long Island and back (with the line of flight is lost throughout the day because you must move from nassau)
If you visit these beautiful islands go by Peter and Betty will not be disappointed
Thank you Peter and Betty for the dream that you have given us
We just got back from a ten day vacation at Coral Sands and I can't say enough great things about it. I first want mention how helpful Peter is and how grateful we were to have such a nice host. He picked up some basic groceries for us since we arrived on a Sunday and showed us around both the property and showed my husband around Georgetown. He was always available quickly if we needed him and he stopped by a few times, as we requested. He helped us plan our trips to the north and south ends of the island giving us tips on what beaches to go to and where to eat. He really helped make the vacation a great one!
The apartment was clean and stocked with the cooking basics. The deck had an amazing view of the beach and has patio furniture, perfect for the morning coffee or our card playing at night. The beach is secluded, seeing only a few people and has chairs and shade! Beautiful colours and soft sand (sandy bottom in the water too). Don't forget to walk down to the docks to see the turtles. Ask Peter about feeding them. We did and it was so much fun! I believe this is the perfect location for a vacation on the island. It's very close to town with the deli and grocery store just down the road. Georgetown is only 5-10 minutes away. It's also in the center of the island, perfect for our traveling days north and south. And a rental car is a must!
These are some of the highlights of our trip. We did the full day tour with Coastline excursions that included boating through the cays, thunder ball grotto snorkeling, swimming with sharks, feeding iguanas and swimming with pigs (and more!). We also rented a boat with Minns and had a great day exploring on our own. We found some great secluded beaches, a sand bar and an abandoned ship to snorkel. The Tropic of Cancer beach is by far the most beautiful beach on the island. Make sure you stop at Santana's for their lobster, amazing food and good prices. Coco plum beach was fun for finding sand dollars. The Peace and Plenty hotel has a great BBQ and Catch a Fire is the place to be at sunset. Some restaurants in town have rake bands certain nights too. Also, you must go to Chat and Chill on Stocking Island and plan to spend the day there. Beautiful beach, great drinks/food and overall atmosphere. And they have tame stingrays that will eat right out of your hand!
We had an amazing vacation and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much Peter and we hope to see you again soon!

Hoopers Bay area is the most convenient on the island with only a 10 minute journey from the international airport, and then 6 minutes to the capital-Georgetown.
Local well stocked shops are within a 5 minute easy walk.
Besides the beautiful beach at Hoopers Bay, there are other beaches within a short distance, whilst from Georgetown, the daily water taxi to Stocking Island ( which takes less then 15 minutes and costs $12 round trip ) with its miles of calm shallow water is not to be missed.
