Guestbook comments from the owner
Coral Gardens is situated just above Hoopers Bay in fantastic Great Exuma. It is described as the "best beach" in Exuma which some may say is an exaggeration. Having now been there, I can tell you it's true! Not only is it mostly deserted but it has a resident family of three Green Turtles which are more than happy to come have a chat with you, especially if you take some food with you - little bits of squid being their favourite, apparently - but they seemed to like the cereal too! There are many other fish that will swim around your legs quite happily, even in the shallows. Best place to find huge shoals is between the two docks, which is where the turtles can also be found. The water is crystal clear and warm.

We stayed in the one bed apartment on the right hand side of the building which was perfect for our needs and had everything you would need. There was a slight issue with the electrics one night but Peter had that attended to the very next day. Betty was off island for most of our trip but good old Peter managed admirably. We did partake of his helpful tips on where and when to go as some restaurants are only open on certain days and he even advised where to stay clear of because of excess mosquitoes and flies after dusk. Very helpful.

All in all, we had a great time. The car from Peter is a necessity if you want to see the island as taxis are a bit hit and miss. The freedom a car gives you is certainly worth it as the island is bigger than it may seem and you dont want to miss out on seeing everything.

We are already planning another trip in January and we will definitely be staying at Coral Gardens. It's not a resort as some people have stated, more like going to stay at good old Uncle Pete's house, where he won’t tell your parents what you got up to!

Stay here if you're coming to the island, you won’t regret it.

Betty and Peter moved permanently to Exuma in 1999 after retiring from their jobs in England. Betty had owned and run a successful B & B in England for 15 years so the objective was to find a suitable property where we could both live and operate as a small Guest House + self-catering apartments.

'Coral Gardens' was found and suited our requirements for its size and location Now with our combined 30 years experience of helping our guests we are able to make the best suggestions to get the most out of a visit to Exuma.

Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this apartment in 1999

'Coral Gardens' is situated along a small quiet private road and on the side of a small west facing hill which allows for maximum sunshine all the day and beautiful sunsets.The Exuma breezes also provide for more comfort than many other locations especially in the hot summer months.

The Hoopers Bay area is primarily residential but a good range of local shops for groceries, butchers, deli, pharmacy and liquor are within walking distance--providing further savings than other locations which need a taxi or a rental car for shopping !!

Uniquely advantaged with proximity to the airport, Georgetown the capital, local shops and the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach which is regarded as one of the BEST on the island.

Ottima soluzione e rapporto qualità/prezzo

  • 4 out of 5
Il Coral Gardens è una bella residenza composta da un corpo centrale (dove vivono i proprietari e dove si può soggiornare in bed & breakfast) e due appartamenti ai suoi lati, circondata da un giardino gradevole. Noi siamo stati nell'appartamento più grande, composto da una camera da letto (1 singolo + 1 matrimoniale enorme), un salotto (con divano letto) con angolo cottura e un bagno (decisamente grande); ci sono anche un piccolo corridoio con armadio a muro e patio privato (dove potrete bere un aperitivo, guardando il tramonto).
L'appartamento è dotato di tutto il necessario per soggiornare comodamente (TV grande, radio CD, Wi-Fi gratuito di buona velocità, ventilatori a soffitto e aria condizionata), cucinare adeguatamente e lavare qualche indumento, visto che c'è anche una lavatrice. Acqua in abbondanza (anche quella calda).
Peter & Betty (i proprietari) sono due inglesi che da 15 anni vivono a Exuma. Sono stati molto ospitali, gentili e cordiali. Parlano un inglese molto chiaro e a una velocità adeguata affinché l'interlocutore (evidentemente non madrelingua anglosassone) possa tranquillamente capire e interagire.
Peter è un conoscitore dell'isola e quindi potrà dare qualsiasi consiglio su spiagge, negozi, banche, ristoranti, taxi, escursioni, etc. quando ne farete richiesta (soprattutto i primi giorni).
Visti i prezzi degli affitti per un soggiorno di breve periodo, la tariffa del CG è decisamente molto competitiva. Questo è dovuto anche al fatto che la struttura non si trova sul mare, ma a circa 800 metri dalla stupenda baia di Hoopers. Preso comunque atto che a Exuma l'automobile è necessaria perchè ci sono veramente molte spiagge da vedere, tanto vale spendere meno per l'appartamento e noleggiare una macchina. E' chiaro che chi ha un budget più alto a disposizione potrà chiedere a Peter infos sulle altre due sistemazioni che affitta sulla spiaggia. A proposito, Peter noleggia anche le automobili; ne ha 4 (tra cui 2 mini Jeep, 1 van 7 posti e una mini-monovolume) e potrete quindi rivolgervi a lui (tra l'altro a prezzi buoni rispetto ai rent-a-car del luogo).
Insomma, il CG è decisamente un bel posto. Siamo molto soddisfatti della scelta fatta. Noi siamo una famiglia composta da due adulti e una bambina di 9 anni.
Il giudizio di 4 stelle è condizionato dal fatto che la casa è distante dal mare. Ma per il resto è tutto molto ben organizzato da Peter. La pulizia iniziale era di buona fattura. Cambiamo asciugamani ogni 2 giorni e lenzuola ogni 3.

Owner's Response: Hi GiSiGi,

We so much enjoyed reading your Review & are delighted that you had such a lovely holiday in Exuma.

We hope this will not be your only visit to the Bahamas & as you are experienced scuba divers, you would also enjoy staying at our beachfront villa "Casa Tramonto Stupendo" in nearby Long Island where there are some excellent dive sites.

Best wishes & thanks to you all.

Betty & Peter - Owners

Ciao GiSiGi,

Abbiamo molto apprezzato leggendo la tua recensione e siamo lieti che hai avuto una bella vacanza come in Exuma.

Speriamo che questo non sarà la vostra unica visita alle Bahamas e come siete esperti subacquei, si dovrebbe anche godere presso la nostra villa sulla spiaggia "Casa Tramonto Stupendo" nella vicina Long Island, dove ci sono alcuni siti di immersione eccellenti.

Auguri e grazie a tutti voi.

Betty & Peter - i proprietari
