About Peter & Betty Oxley

Betty & Peter moved from England in 1999 to permanently live in Exuma and in 2001 we found the perfect beach plot to build our dream house.

Great location, property and host. Family had a wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Coral Sands with my wife and our four children (11 to 18 yrs). Property is spacious and well appointed. Wonderful home. Great beach. Peter is a wonderful host and source of island insight and advice (guides, sights, flora, restaurants, groceries, library, etc). Beach is great, kayaks and fresh water showers were great additions. Recommend renting a vehicle (we rented Peter’s, which worked out perfectly). House is short car ride outside George Town yet remote enough to be Exuma-suburban. House is close to Smittys market and liquor and a couple other good markets and restaurants. Was our first time on Exuma. Have had similar stays and experience on Abacos but would rate Exuma slightly higher due to more restaurant and market options away from the main city. Fresh fish and conch all week. Would definitely come back to this property when we come back to Exuma.

Popular choices include boat trips to the Exuma Cays to see the swimming pigs, iguanas and Thunderball Grotto, diving and snorkelling adventures, boat rental and visiting some of the local beach restaurants for seafood such as lobster.
