We were pleased to have been awarded the TripAdvisor TRAVELLERS CHOICE AWARD for this year,and their CERTIFICATE of EXCELLENCE for previous years for our beachfront Studio which is based on very satisfied guest Reviews. Imagine waking up in the morning to the soothing sound of the gentle lapping of waves on the beach. Only seconds later from your Studio/ apartment, you could be enjoying the first swim of the day in the incredibly blue & calm sea of Hoopers Bay - undisturbed by any other people & only a Green Turtle or two to notice you. Later, take out one of our kayaks to further explore the bay or spend some time snorkelling. Too much activity? Then just relax & unwind on one of our beach loungers or sea-floats until time comes for a cool drink. Sheer bliss in the Bahamas!!

Then just relax & unwind on one of our beach loungers or sea-floats until time comes for a cool drink. Sheer bliss in the Bahamas!! Hoopers Bay is regarded as the BEST BEACH to stay on in Exuma and the only beach with resident GREEN TURTLES. Just a few steps though the palm and coconut trees in our garden is the nearly 1 mile long, safe and calm sea of Hoopers Bay and we have loungers, tables & chairs and kayaks + paddleboard for our guests. Local shops are only 5 minutes easy walk away, whilst the capital, Georgetown is just 6 minutes by car. As we live nearby on the island, we will arrange for our dedicated taxi driver to greet you at the airport and bring you to Sandy Palms where we will personally welcome you and show you around as well as giving you much more information about the island and activities you can enjoy. The modern, ground-floor Studio has a Queen sized bed,shower room with WC and handbasin, kitchenette with hotplates for cooking, refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker and toaster oven, plus all crockery and cutlery for 2 persons. Additionally there is a dining table and chairs and loveseat (a 2 person sofa ) whilst outside, the private patio for the Studio has another dining table and chairs for enjoying meals 'al-fresco' whilst looking out to the beach and sea. For our guests comfort the Studio has ceiling fan and A/C as well as FREE and UNLIMITED Wifi.. More
