Just a few steps through the palm trees in our garden takes you directly onto the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach -a 1/2 mile ( 1 kilometer ) long soft white sandy bay gently sloping into the incredibly blue safe and calm water which is ideal for all ages to swim, snorkel, play or kayak. Hoopers Bay is sheltered from the prevailing winds so is always calm and safe
Betty and Peter have lived in Exuma permanently since 1999 when we moved from England and have developed their #1 Rated B&B Guest House 'CORAL GARDENS' which has been very popular for guests from all around the world for many years.
They recognised the need for visitors to have the choice to enjoy staying DIRECTLY on a beautiful beach and so in 2012 they found the ideal, nearby location which they named Sandy Palms in recognition of the many palms and coconut trees in the garden.
Now with their combined 30 years of experience welcoming guests to the island we are able to help with the best suggestions of making the most of a visit to Exuma.
Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this apartment in 2012
Only 10 minutes from the international airport and 6 minutes from Georgetown, the convenient location of Sandy Palms is quiet and peaceful whilst a variety of local shops are only a 5 minute easy walk away.
Approached on its own tree lined driveway and hidden from the Queens Highway Sandy Palms is positioned along the centre of the 1/2 mile curving sweep of Hoopers Bay.
Hoopers Bay Beach is protected from the prevailing winds and so is always calm and the sea safe for all ages.
Just a few steps from the apartment ,the beach is a 1/2 mile (1 kilometer) strand of soft white sand and on the beach we have tables and chairs and loungers for our guests and for the more active we also have kayaks to explore more of the bay.
We had a wonderful time on Exuma and we could not have asked for anything more from our stay at your beautiful house. It was perfect for our needs and Hoopers Bay is, without a doubt, one of our favorite beaches we have ever been too. We wish we could have spent more time enjoying it, but were torn between all of the beautiful places the island has to offer.
Our shells made it back with almost no breakage thanks to your lending us the containers, and we have spent some time cleaning them up – we need to find a good way to display them all. The kids have been showing them off and telling everyone stories about our trip.
Thank you again for your hospitality and for all of your help and advice in planning our adventures.
This was truly a trip that was even better than anticipated and will stick in our memories for a lifetime. We hope we can make it back sometime in the future, or to one of the other islands in the Bahamas.
Take care and all the best to you both.
Abbiamo soggiornato al Sandy Palms per 10 giorni.
La casa è direttamente sulla fantastica spiaggia di Hoopers Bay. L'appartamento è confortevole e dotato di tutto quanto potesse servire. I proprietari sono persone veramente fantastiche, ci hanno aiutato moltissimo sia per quanto riguarda le escursioni sia dandoci consigli per visitare l'isola nel migliore dei modi. La spiaggia davanti alla casa è bellissima e capita spesso di fare il bagno in compagnia di bellissime tartarughe. I proprietari mettono a disposizione lettini, kayak e giochi per bambini. Consiglio a chiunque di soggiornare al Sandy Palms.
Penso che Betty e Peter (i proprietari) siano il vero valore aggiunto, non ho mai trovato persone così disponibili ed interessate a far si che i loro clienti trascorressero una vacanza indimenticabile.
Appartement au paradis.... Plage déserte, et appartement très bien équipé pour une famille avec 3 enfants. Terrasse aménagée, climatisation dans les chambres, cuisine bien agencée bref tout pour passer des vacances idylliques. Bien entendu grâce à Peter, un hôte toujours de bon conseil et disponible pour toutes nos questions!
La localisation est très très tranquille, il y a un magasin à quelques pas, un endroit parfait pour se reposer. Voiture indispensable et mise en location par le propriétaire, Peter Oxley, bref, un endroit extraordinaire, on n' attend plus que d'y retourner!!!!
The Sandy Palms beach house was a perfect location for our families week in the Bahamas. The secluded white sand beach in Hoopers Bay was great for swimming and kayaking. We rarely saw other people and its a prime location for swimming with sea turtles. My kids swam with turtles almost every day of our trip. The beach house is walking distance to both a good deli and a grocery store and pharmacy yet private and secluded. Peter Betty were great resources of information on sites and services around the island and provided a car for rent on days we wanted one. Highly recommend for families with children.
We had a great week at this property. It was really nice to get up and walk the beach every morning, and see turtles and rays.
We were able to swim with the turtles on a couple of occasions. The beach is awesome!! The apartment although somewhat small was adequate and comfortable for the 4 of us. The property itself was well maintained, and landscaped nicely. Peter is a wonderful host. He was always willing to accommodate us, and help us with finding the best spots on the island to adventure to. One of our top vacations ever. Thanks!
Everything perfect, a couple of things, the shower will need change and Peter and Betty are lovely and great person.
I recommend this place for two reason, the place and the owner.
For me and my family is the second time in Exuma,
Everything was great except we were in a unit on a back lower corner of the house so we had no views! But the tour guide/owner, Peter, was great!
Besides the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach-regarded as the BEST to stay on in Exuma- there are also other lovely beaches nearby to explore.
Exuma offers a wide range of activities such a snorkeling, kayaking,, boat rental and boat trips to the Exuma Cays to see the swimming pigs, Thunder ball Grotto etc.
