Our king studio was cozy and had everything you could possibly need. Each suite offers lovely privacy as well as cool and quiet retreat from the days swimming and sunning. The service however stands alone. Peter and Betty extend gracious information and make sure what ever you need or want is easily acquired. This was a stress free vacation entirely due to the hosts Peter and Betty.

The beach is absolutely beautiful. No need chasing the others as the peace and tranquility right at your toes is the best. But go explore, it only makes you appreciate where you landed more.

Sandy Palms location in the middle of the island turned out to be excellent. 30 minutes either way for exploring other beaches.

Exuma is about beaches, nature and sea creatures. No nightlife to speak of which is exactly what we like.

Things to know: you need a car to experience every nook and cranny. Peter has you covered on that too! Just ask. Driving on the left with significant pit holes is not for the faint at heart. Most beaches you visit have no restaurants for sunset cocktails. When you have had enough local fried food, checknour Splash, Augusta for breakfast, both close to home or LeFourchette for beautiful ambiance, charming g pool area and delicious food.

We can’t wait to return next year.

“Paradise on Earth”
Reviewed 2 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This vacation was exactly what we were looking for. Relaxation, peace, beauty and comfort. We did not have a single complaint. The Wifi went down for a few days while we were there, but we did not care, and Peter and Betty were so accommodating by stopping by in order to communicate with us if required. It was so nice knowing that they had booked our taxi's for us when we arrived and when we departed as it took the pressure off for us getting to and from the apartment. And the car that was available for rent was a wonderful addition as it allowed us the freedom to get groceries and tour the island at our leisure. The turtles that live out in Hoopers Bay fulfilled a life long dream of being able to swim with the turtles! The beach was empty most days and the calm, tranquil atmosphere allowed us to fully relax. The bed in the apartment is cozy, the air conditioning works well, and it was clean and conveniently close to all the amenities that we required. The only slight annoyance was the amount of flies that are attracted by the smell of cooking food, but thanks to a fly swatter provided, this is easily remedied. Thank you so much Peter and Betty for providing us with the absolute most perfect vacation we have ever experienced!

Fue un placer darle la bienvenida a nuestra propiedad frente a la playa Sandy Palms. Nos complace especialmente que haya tenido éxito con su curso de buceo durante su estancia.

Esperamos que pueda visitarnos nuevamente en el futuro para experimentar más del mundo submarino de Exuma.

Los mejores deseos de la calidez y el sol,

Betty y Peter Oxley

It was a pleasure to welcome you to our beachfront Sandy Palms property. We were especially pleased that you were successful with your Scuba diving course during your stay.

Hopefully you can visit us again sometime in the future to experience more of the underwater world of Exuma.

Best wishes from the warmth & sunshine,

Betty & Peter Oxley

Sei stato così gentile da scrivere una recensione così bella che sicuramente aiuterà gli altri italiani a capire meglio di Exuma.
