My husband and I spent 9 days at Sandy Palms studio apartment and had a wonderful time! The property is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. There was plenty to do on the beach itself, which came with kayaks, a paddle board, floating equipment, and beach toys. We also spent plenty of time relaxing under the palm trees on the reclining beach chairs. The outdoor shower was helpful to wash off the sand before entering our apartment. We also had access to a stove, microwave, and refrigerator which was great because we could cook our own food and save some money. Smittys is just a 5-10 minute walk away for groceries and essentials. Peter and Betty were gracious hosts and always available in case we had questions or needed help with anything. Peter is more than willing to share his knowledge to make your trip more enjoyable. He arranged a tour up the exuma cays and also a fishing trip with Captain Robert, who picked us up and dropped us off at our beach. They also provided us a car and only charge us for the days we used it. I loved our trip so much, I am recommending it to everyone. Peter and Betty will make sure you have an enjoyable and relaxing time.

“Great apartment directly at the beach”

Reviewed 10 May 2014

We (couple English/Germany) stayed 1 week in april and had the 1 Bedroom apartment in the ground floor. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. It is practically equiped and has all you need. The beach directly in front is probably one of the nicest on the Island. Hardly anyone there, 50 meters to the right turtles you can see (and feed) from the beach. Location is very good, 10 minutes by car to Georgetown and the Fish Fry restaurants, Supermarket Smittys 5 minutes. Latter is in walking distance; generally we would recommend to hire a car (which we did through the owner Peter Oxley, who is really a great host and actually helped us to arrange moreless the whole holiday, incl a stay on another Island, Long Island. Peter is great source of tips and advise where to go and what to do). Villa is shared with 2 other studios and a 4 bedroom apartment upstairs, but though it was fully booked it was not overcrowded and we did not feel disturbed by anyone. We enjoyed the holidays very much and hope that we have the opportunity to come back one day.

Response from the owner 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. Betty & Peter - owners

My wife Maureen and I just returned from a 10 day vacation in the studio apartment. After 15 cruises and vacations, we felt this was the best ever. Peter and Betty are great host. This is the first time I have returned from the Carribean and miss it sooo much. I cannot wait to return. Their place, Exuma and specifically Hoopers Bay is a perfect getaway. Thank you Peter and Betty, Dave and Maureen

Response from the owner It was a great pleasure to meet you both for the first time & to help you to enjoy your visit to Exuma so that you could explore & experience so much of this beautiful island. You were lovely guests & we look forward to hopefully welcoming you again with some other members of your family in 2015. Best wishes & many thanks for this much appreciated review.

“Meravigliosa vacanza a Sandy Palms Exuma”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2014

Siamo stati ad Exuma dal 13 al 23 febbraio 2014, un'esperienza meravigliosa, una casa bellissima in una baia con spiaggia bianca e mare incantevole, superiore anche a quello delle Maldive..., inoltre, la disponibilità e la cortesia di Betty e Peter hanno dato un valore aggiunto alla nostra stupenda vacanza, con i loro consigli abbiamo esplorato tutta l'isola, vedendo posti incantevoli che non dimenticheremo. La nostra speranza è di poterci tornare in futuro. Consigliamo a tutti di vivere questa meravigliosa esperienza, con l'appoggio di Peter e Betty del Coral Garden. Gabriella Susanna alfonso Danilo

Response from the owner Grazie per l'invio delle belle foto e anche scrivere il FlipKey Reveiw. E 'stato molto apprezzato da noi a leggere quanto ti è piaciuto il vostro soggiorno al Sandy Palms e la tua recensione sarà anche molto utile per altri italiani che potrebbero voler visitare Exuma. I migliori auguri da il bel sole e 29 * a Sandy Palms. Betty & Peter - proprietari.

“La miglior ospitalità su Exuma!”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2014

Siamo stati al Sandy Palms per 2 settimane e abbiamo trovato l'eccellente ospitalità di Peter e Betty, ottimi padroni di casa e persone veramente squisite. Peter ci ha da subito illustrato ogni particolare della casa e ci ha fornito anche delle spiegazioni dettagliate su come visitare l'isola, sempre disponibile e cordiale. Il Sandy Palms è in un'ottima posizione, su una delle spiagge più belle dell'isola e a 5 minuti dal centro di George Town. L'accesso è direttamente sulla spiaggia e si possono utilizzare sia i lettini che le canoe. Lo studio che abbiamo preso noi è completo di ogni confort e non mancava proprio nulla. Ottima anche la sistemazione a Long Island, Sunset Beach Villa, che abbiamo usufruito la settimana prima di andare ad Exuma. Qui l'appartamento in villa è un po più grande e anch'esso direttamente sul mare e con una visione dei tramonti spettacolare! Anche qui c'è ogni tipo di confort e strumentazione molto completa! Durante il nostro soggiorno Betty e Peter si sono sempre dimostrati molto premurosi e attenti nei nostri riguardi anche nel giorno del nostro matrimonio! Grazie Betty e Peter, ci avete fatto sentire come a casa!

“Gorgeous beachfront location!!!”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2014

My husband and I just spent a wonderful week at Sandy Palms. Upon arrival we were met with a warm welcome from the owner, Peter Oxley. He showed us around the beautiful property and offered his assistance regarding places to visit, dine, etc. Our studio apartment was perfect for two, with an outside patio area complete with table and chairs for dining outside with a view of the ocean. The location is absolutely perfect, set beachfront on Hooper's Bay Beach and is truly breathtaking! Peter arranged a car for us and provided maps showing us interesting places to visit and dine. We toured both Great Exuma and Little Exuma visiting many beaches, historical sites, etc. We found the Bahamian people to be very friendly and courteous. People waved to us as we drove past them, and greeted us with friendly conversation wherever we went. Great Exuma has so much to offer, beautiful warm water beaches, fishing, boating, diving, snorkeling, great food, shopping, etc. This place will rejuvenate you, mind, body and soul!! If you haven't been to this beautiful place give it a try, you will love it! We sure do and can't wait to return. If you go be sure to visit Stocking Island, try the fish fries near Georgetown for great local dishes, the strawmarket in Georgetown for shopping, and visit the endless beaches that line the island. Thank you Peter and Betty for helping to make our vacation a great one!

Response from the owner Thank you so much for the FlipKey Review now published. This is much appreciated by us for your very kind comments but also will give a good idea about the island for potential visitors. Best wishes & thanks from the sunshine. Betty & Peter - owners

“Urlaub im Paradies”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2014

Mein Freund und ich haben für eine Woche ein Studio im Sandy Palms Strandhaus gemietet. Vorab kann ich schonmal sagen, dass es der beste Urlaub war, den wir bislang gemacht haben. Es war einfach alles perfekt. Peter & Betty arrangierten, dass wir vom Flughafen abgeholt und zum apartment gebracht wurden, wo Peter uns bereits erwartete. Da es bei unserer ankunft bereits dunkel war, zeigte uns Peter kurz das apartment und bot uns an am kommenden Morgen nochmal vorbeizukommen, um uns noch weitere Infos zu geben. Sehr nett von ihm war auch, dass er bereits für uns etwas eingekauft hat, sodass wir am kommenden Tag nicht sofort einkaufen mussten. Am folgenden Morgen stand Peter wie verabredet vor der Tür und gab und allerhand Tipps und Infos über die Insel, was man machen kann und wo die schönsten Spots der Insel sind. Während der gesamten Zeit stand Peter mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, sodass wir uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt haben. Das apartment selbst, ist mitten am wunderschönen Strand, es gibt Sonnenliegen, Kanus die kostenfrei genutzt werden können und im Studio ist alles was man braucht. Zum Supermarkt (eigentlich eher ein kleiner Laden) läuft man ca. 5-10 min. - hier bekommt man aber alles was man braucht, jedoch sollte man sich auf höhere Preise einstellen, da alles auf die Insel geschifft werden muss und somit alles ein bisschen teurer ist als normalerweise. Sollte man nicht laufen wollen oder auch mal einen ausflug auf eigene Faust über die Insel machen wollen, kann man sich entweder ein Taxi bestellen (Peter hat das für uns gemacht) oder man leiht sich einen Wagen von Peter aus. Das haben wir auch gemacht und es war völlig unkompliziert und günstiger als einen Mietwagen vom Flughafen zu nehmen. Am liebsten wären wir noch länger geblieben, aber leider mussten wir wieder zurück nach hause. Sollten wir nochmal auf die Bahamas fliegen, würden wir definitiv wieder bei Peter und Betty vorbei schauen.

Response from the owner Annie & Phil, Sie waren sehr schön und die Gäste genossen die entspannende und ruhige Zeit zusammen im Sand Palms. Vielen Dank für das sehr freundliche Bewertung, die hilfreich für andere in Deutschland und Europa, die sich denken kann aus einem Urlaub auf den Bahamas sein wird. Die besten Wünsche und Dank von einem sonnigen und 29 * Exuma. Betty & Peter

This is a beautiful villa that is steps to a great beach. Ideal for families or a group of people. 10 minutes by vehicle to Georgetown. Make all of your own meals or lot's of terrific places to dine on the island. The owners, Peter & Betty Oxley are attentive, accommodating and extremely pleasant. Great service at a very reasonable cost. We loved everything about it - nothing that we didn't like. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Ron, Bonnie, Adrian & Kevin Meyers

Response from the owner Hello everyone, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our Sandy Palms Beach House - especially as you have stayed at our other properties in both Exuma & Long Island so you can compare as experts!! Best wishes & hope that Canada is not too frigid!! Betty & Peter

“Great Vaction Spot - 11/10-11/18/2013”

Reviewed 18 Dec 2013

My family of four (two adults, two children ages 9 and 11) had a great vacation on the island of Great Exuma. Despite the 3 hour delay in Nassua the day of our arrival, Peter met us at the house at 9:30 p.m. with ice cold beer in the fridge. He also kindly stocked us with breakfast fixings as the stores were closed when we arrived. Throughout the week, Peter graciously provided us with information regarding the various beaches, booked our Exuma Cays Tour provided restaurant recommendations, etc. We visited many of the beaches, but all agreed that Hooper's Bay was the best beach of all, and only steps away from the house. We visited the sea turtles daily and snorkeled with them on several occasions. Having the rental car available to us whenever we needed it was wonderful. We had plenty of activities to keep us and our children busy all week. Each beach had something different to offer, so we were never bored. And, many times, we had the beach all to ourselves. Some of our favorite activities/places were the Cays Tour, Stocking Island, Catch a Fire, Fish Fry and "our" beach, Hooper's Bay. It was a fantastic vacation and I wouldn't hesitate to visit again!

Response from the owner Mary & family, Thank you so much for your very kind FlipKey Review & you were lovely guests. Your various descriptions of places & activities will certainly be helpful for other families or groups who may be considering a holiday to Exuma. Our best wishes to you all for Christmas & the New Year & we hope that we can welcome you again sometime in the future - either to Exuma or to our Sunset Beach Villa in nearby Long Island.

“Praktische funktionale Unterkunft direkt am Traumstrand gelegen.”

Reviewed 18 Dec 2013

Das Studio ist funktional eingerichtet. Der traumhafte Strand ist nur ca. 50 Meter entfernt und menschenleer. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in unmittelbarer Nähe vorhanden. Restaurants sind ca. 2-3 km entfernt. Ein Mietwagen ist auf Exuma empfehlenswert, da kein öffentliches Verkehrssystem vorhanden ist. Studio ist komplett mit Fliegengittern ausgestattet, was die Sandflöhe und Mücken außen vor lässt. Das Studio haben wir sauber vorgefunden. Die von Betty & Peter angebotenen Kajaks haben schöne abwechslung in den Tag reingebracht.

Response from the owner Anne & Markus, Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung und zur Erklärung über Sandy Palms, die andere aus Deutschland und Europa, die sich denken kann aus einem Urlaub in Exuma helfen. Die besten Wünsche für das Jahr 2014 und bedanken uns für den Aufenthalt bei uns. Betty & Peter
