The studio apt. had plenty of room for 2, everything you could need-beach was beautiful, only about 50 feet away and almost deserted-beach chairs, kayak waiting on you. Peter was 1st class, full of info, rented us a car and gave us a tour-he's just an email away if you need him and if you don't need him you won't see him! If you plan on renting a boat Mimm's boats were nice and so were the people there but be sure you reserve one before you go, same with any tours or fishing you may want to do-be sure to drive to the end of the island to Santana's for fresh lobster lunch too.
Overall we can't say enough good things about the rental or Peter our host-Perfect vacation for us!
My husband and I had an amazing time staying at Sandy Palms! The unit is right on the beach and is a short couple of steps to one of the calmest beaches in Great Exuma! The hosts, Betty and Peter were always a quick email away and answered everything timely and accurately. Peter took the time to explain the island to us and gave us great tips on where to do and what to do. He was super welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. Safety was our least concern. The unit itself has everything you need. We cooked most meals in and the toaster oven was the best asset during our stay! The kayaks were fun to use to look for some turtles and the beach loungers helped to make your beach day comfortable! We rented a car through Peter, and it was an awesome decision! Exploring the island and then coming back to this unit and beach made our days simply amazing. I would highly recommend staying at Sandy Palms and we are definitely hoping to make a return trip!
The studio is directly on the beach, it is a very quiet place yet very close to all the facilities you may need, such as supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, etc, in one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. The studio is cosy and functional at the same time and Peter is a goldmine of useful information and insights on where to go and what to do in Exuma. Highly recommended!!!
Talk about the right place in the right location! This house is perfect. We rented the Studio, but would have loved to have the larger unit...but it's our fault for booking too late! So book early to make sure you get what you want. Close to one of the island's two grocery stores, and close to the meat man...who has the best steaks (and more) available on Exuma. Renting a car makes everything very available, so we ate out every evening.
close to the beach, clean, neighbors were not too loud, Peter is the perfect host
appliances are dated, but function ok.
