About Betty & Peter Oxley
We 'discovered' the island of Exuma in 1997 and moved here in 1999. Betty previously owned and operated a successful Guest House in England for 15 years. We started looking for a beautiful and peaceful location in the world to move to when Peter retired from his own job in London.
After several years searching in different parts of the world we perrmanently in 1999. We were struck by the amazing unspoilt beauty of the beaches and waters of the Bahamas and the Exumas in particular but an important extra was the natural friendliness and honesty of the people of the island. This has become our permanent home with only short visits to the UK to remind us of why we left !!!
We very much enjoy helping our guests also 'discover' the most beautiful parts of the island and some of the special activities to make the most of a visit. With a combined 30 years experience of helping our guests we are able to suggest the best that the island has to offer.
Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this house in 1997
