“Loved our week at Sandy Palms-Paradise on Hooper's Bay”

people found this review helpful

We just spent an amazing week on Exuma and loved our stay at Betty's & Peter's Sandy Palms location on stunning Hooper's Bay. Our studio unit at Sandy Palms was perfect for us. From the very first email contact with the Oxley's, we received great assistance and lodging information, and booking our stay was so easy. This was our first visit to Exuma and dealing with Betty and Peter was such a help. They pre arranged our airport pick up and our rental car delivery to Sandy Palms, and their representative was there to greet and welcome us. Our room was stocked with all kinds of helpful visitor information and suggestions and Sandy Palms location on beautiful Hooper's Bay was fantastic. We were settled in quickly and effortlessly. Sandy Palms is just a short drive from the shops, restaurants and activities of Georgetown, where you also catch Elvis's water taxi to Stocking Island. If you need more room than a studio, Sandy Palms also has larger accommodations to meet your needs. There are kayaks for your use and lots of nice beach loungers, and a nice outdoor shower available for guests to use after spending time at the beach. Hooper's Bay beach is a gorgeous crescent of white sand, and the water is just incredible.

Exuma and Stocking Island are wonderful places to visit, and the Bahamian Islanders were such a joy to meet and get to know. We loved the pace of island life on Exuma and the reminder signs at the Fish Fry that read "Not Fast Food, Good Food Made to Order". We can't Thank Betty and Peter enough for all their assistance in making our first trip to Exuma such a fantastic time. We highly recommend staying at one of the Oxley's great properties on Exuma. We know we will be back and we know we will book our future stays with Betty and Peter.

Michael & Sally,

We very much enjoyed welcoming you to both our Sandy Palms apartments in Exuma followed by a further week at our Sunset Beach Villa in Long Island & know from your Review how much you enjoyed both locations & got so much out of your visit.

Thank you for writing such an informative Review which will certainly help other potential visitors to consider staying with us in the future.

Best wishes & thanks to you both from a sunny & 30* Exuma.
