“Amazing Stay (As Always!)”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our second time staying with Peter and Betty (though in a new property this time) and we couldn't be more pleased with our stay. Those of you considering going to Exuma should definitely stay at any number of properties that Peter and Betty have. Here's a summary of how you will plan your trip. First you email them asking for availability and rates. They do a great job of answering questions and providing suggestions on rooms based on your party. Once the rooms are finalized you send payment through paypal or direct wire transfer. Then you book the flight and send the itinerary to them. They will have a driver come pick you up at the airport (Willie is his name, I believe) and bring you to where you are staying. Once there, Peter will be there personally to greet you and walk you through the room and property. This time, we took the last flight into Exuma which got us there after all the stores close so Peter was very nice enough to buy some groceries for us so we had something to eat before morning. Since we were staying at a new property (to us) Peter also hopped in the car with me and we did a quick drive to key stores (groceries and liquor store) so we knew where to go the following day to stock up. Then we were on our own to relax and explore. I would definitely recommend renting a car from them instead of from a rental company on the island because it costs less and the cars drive fine - just remember, you'll be driving on the left side of the road! During our week-long stay, Peter was always available (by email or just walking around attending to other guests on the same property) and is more than happy to sit down for 10 minutes with a map and show you everywhere you want to go and has good recommendations on what to do/eat and on what days. I won't talk about what the island has to offer here since it's a review of Coral Gardens and not the island itself but you'll find quickly that all the information you need is in their heads and they will guide you in the right direction. Leaving Exuma is always sad but just like arriving, you will have a car ready for you at the right time before your flight and a personal farewell from Peter. We will definitely be going back and I can trust that Peter/Betty will be there waiting for us!

“Proximity to beach with calm water”

The studio (not 2-room apartment) we rented was clean and comfortable.The exterior was tidy. We appreciated the proximity to the beach which is protected from huge waves and was used by very few other people. Peter Oxley, the owner, provided us with lots information prior to our arrival with suggestions of groceries and restaurants near by. This was very helpful.

Era così bello leggere la tua opinione su vostre esperienze quando siamo stati al nostro Sandy Palms Beach House. Nel mese di gennaio, il tempo può essere a volte un po 'fresco (24 * o 25 *), ma ora è 28 * e il mare è molto più caldo.

Speriamo che possiamo darvi il benvenuto di nuovo a Exuma.

I migliori auguri da sole.
