Perfectly located DIRECTLY on what is regarded as the BEST BEACH to stay on in Exuma at HOOPERS BAY, this economical ground floor apartment within our Sandy Palms Beach property is ideal for a small family or 2 couples with a Queen bed in one room and 2 Twins (or 1 King bed) in the other room. It has 2 shower rooms, full kitchen, lounge and dining area + outside patio with outdoor table and chairs. Sandy Palms is ideally located on the island and set with its own garden of 1.5 acres with the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach just a few steps though the coconut trees in our gardens. The 1/2 mile long beach of soft, white sand slopes gently into the calm sea as the bay is protected from the prevailing winds which can make other beaches sometimes uncomfortable. On the beach we have loungers, tables and chairs, and kayaks for our guests. We are located only 10 minutes from the Georgetown International airport and 6 minutes from the capital with a range of local shops for groceries, pharmacy, deli, butcher and liquor all within an easy 5 minute walk. We live nearby so we arrange the short taxi transfer from the airport where you will be greeted by our dedicated taxi driver. We will personally welcome you at Sandy Palms and can be available for information on activities, restaurants etc to help you make the most of your stay. We look forward to welcoming you soon to enjoy this wonderful location and relax!! More
