About Betty & Peter Oxley

Betty & Peter moved to Exuma in 1999 after 15 years of owning and operating a popular guest house in England .We then created the Award Winning ' Coral Gardens' B & B Guest House which has been VOTED #1 on EXUMA every year since 2009 by the worlds largest travelers site.

Realising that many guests like to have a choice of being DIRECTLY on the beach, we finally found our ideal and nearby location on the beautiful Hoopers Bay beach.which we named 'SANDY PALMS' as the garden which surrounds the property is filled with palm trees. We created a number of self-catering Studio and Apartment accommodations ranging from a comfortable and economical Studio/Effeciency for a couple, also a larger 2 room apartment for a family or 4 people, and a huge 8 person apartment with 4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms for groups of families or friends. This allows us to match our guests needs for the right sized and right priced accommodation and still offering peace and quiet as all the units have their own entrances in different parts of the building and separate patios and sundecks.

As we live nearby at Coral Gardens we not only arrange the short taxi ride from the airport, where you will be greeted by our dedicated taxi driver-Willy Rolle of Taxi #3, but we will personally welcome you to 'Sandy Palms' and show you around and give you maps and other information.

Our desire is to help our guests enjoy the holiday THEY want-whether it is simply a peaceful and relaxing time or activity filled. With our combined 30 years experience welcoming guests to Exuma we are able to make the best suggestions for making the most of a visit to the island

Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Betty & Peter Oxley chose Great Exuma

Hoopers Bay is the most convenient location to stay on in Exuma with easy access from the airport,& just a short distance from Georgetown as well as good local shops within an easy 5 minute walk.

Sandy Palms is set down its own long, tree lined driveway, and therefore away from the main road for peace and quiet whilst the beach is just a few steps through the coconut palms.

For guests who want to have a peaceful and relaxing visit but still be close enough shops, restaurants etc then Sandy Palms is the place to stay

What makes this apartment unique

For an incomparable beach location for lovers of sun and water and at the most economical price, this location is hard to beat !!.

With Betty and Peters combined 30+ years of experience living in Exuma we can offer our guests detailed and helpful information on all activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

La posizione dell'appartamento è perfetta, direttamente su una delle spiagge più belle dell'isola. Il proprietario Peter, è stato molto disponibile anche durante il ns soggiorno, fornendoci tutte le informazioni necessarie per poter visitare l'isola che merita sicuramente per una vacanza rilassante.

Vacanza perfetta!!

  • 5 out of 5
Abbiamo affittato uno studio al Sandy Palms per una settimana, perfetto per due persone, pulito, comodo e direttamente su Hoopers Bay (circa 10 passi!!), una meravigliosa spiaggia (a nostro parere la + bella di Great Exuma) dove puoi addirittura fare amicizia con delle splendide tartarughe marine che vivono a ridosso del pontile! Esperienza unica!
Peter, il proprietario, è una persona eccezionale, gentile e premuroso è sempre pronto a dare ottimi consigli e suggerimenti sui posti da visitare, ristoranti, escursioni...veramente di grande aiuto!
Le spiagge di Great e Little Exuma sono fantastiche con un colore del mare inimmaginabile, le persone del posto sono gentili e sorridenti e ci sono alcuni ristoranti (lo "Shirley's" al 1° posto) dove si mangia con poco cibo davvero strepitoso!
Torneremo di sicuro alle Exumas e al Sandy Palms, è un posto che ti resta nel cuore!

Fantastic Apartment in Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
This studio apartment can not be beat! It is literally right on the beach with stunning azure blue water and terrific sunsets right outside your door. The use of kayaks, lounge chairs, and other toys are all included. We dragged the lounge chairs right into the water and watched the sunset each night. Terrific!!!

Lastly, Peter met with us the first two afternoons with a map and guidance on the best beaches to visit. We visited the most beautiful places on the island and literally saw not one person at any of these getaways. In fact, during a full-day excursion Peter booked for us (incredible dray of feeding nurse sharks, iguana island, cave snorkeling, etc.), not one of the other travelers on the boat even knew of these beaches.
We truly felt very blessed that Peter had given us the inside scoop on everything from beaches to the best $20 lobster meal you will ever have.
It was the best vacation I have ever had, and I have traveled the world, including islands of Fiji and Australia. Exuma and the hospitality and comfort of Sandy Palms cannot be beaten. Save yourself by not booking into one of those overpriced resorts that keeps you a prisoner.

Instead, rent at Sandy Palms and rent Peter's car for the week. Take your beach gear with you every day and have the most private and gorgeous week of your life.

Peace, Brian Bowles (Denver, CO.)

Paradise at Sandy Palms on Hooper's Bay

Paradise at Sandy Palms on Hooper's Bay
  • 5 out of 5
We just spent an amazing week on Exuma and loved our stay at Betty's & Peter's Sandy Palms location on stunning Hooper's Bay. Our studio unit at Sandy Palms was perfect for us. From the very first email contact with the Oxley's, we received great assistance and lodging information, and booking our stay was so easy. This was our first visit to Exuma and dealing with Betty and Peter was such a help. They pre arranged our airport pick up and our rental car delivery to Sandy Palms, and their representative was there to greet and welcome us. Our room was stocked with all kinds of helpful visitor information and suggestions and Sandy Palms location on beautiful Hooper's Bay was fantastic. We were settled in quickly and effortlessly. Sandy Palms is just a short drive from the shops, restaurants and activities of Georgetown, where you also catch Elvis's water taxi to Stocking Island. If you need more room than a studio, Sandy Palms also has larger accommodations to meet your needs. There are kayaks for your use and lots of nice beach loungers, and a nice outdoor shower available for guests to use after spending time at the beach. Hooper's Bay beach is a gorgeous crescent of white sand, and the water is just incredible.

Exuma and Stocking Island are wonderful places to visit, and the Bahamian Islanders were such a joy to meet and get to know. We loved the pace of island life on Exuma and the reminder signs at the Fish Fry that read "Not Fast Food, Good Food Made to Order". We can't Thank Betty and Peter enough for all their assistance in making our first trip to Exuma such a fantastic time. We highly recommend staying at one of the Oxley's great properties on Exuma. We know we will be back and we know we will book our future stays with Betty and Peter.

Incantevole sistemazione in un vero paradiso....

  • 5 out of 5
Con la mia ragazza, abbiamo avuto il piacere di soggiornare una settimana in questa splendida location situata a pochi metri da una delle più belle e tranquille spiagge dell'isola di Exuma: Hoopers Bay
L'accoglienza del proprietario Peter,ci ha fatto capire fin da subito che ci saremmo trovati benissimo...e cosi è stato.Peter è una persona gentilissima, sempre disponibile a darci tutte le informazioni necessarie per vivere al meglio la vacanza su quest'isola.
Essendo arrivati un pò tardi, ci ha fatto trovare la spesa per fare la colazione il giorno dopo. Inoltre,con la sua jeep, mi ha portato a fare un giro a George Town per darmi indicazioni su dove fare la spesa, dove andare a mangiare etc etc (PS: per la spesa, consiglio il market al centro di George Town, che è molto più fornito di quello che si trova vicino a Sandy Palms)
SandyPalms, è una villa su due piani costruita a 50 metri dal mare, al centro dell’ incantevole spiaggia di Hoopers Bay; al primo piano c’è un’ appartamento molto grande composto da 4 camere da letto ed un ampio salone da cui si accede ad uno splendido terrazzo con vista diretta sul mare;al piano terra ci sono 4 monolocali con angolo cottura e bagno;il nostro monolocale era pulito, confortevole e dotato di forno a microonde,tostapane,TV e aria condizionata; Sandy Palms si trova praticamente al centro dell'isola per cui è un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare sia la parte sud che la parte nord dell'isola; dista circa 4/5 Km dal primo centro abitato (George Town) e circa 1 km dal primo super market quindi, per spostarsi, è necessario noleggiare un auto; Peter ha delle piccole Jeep; noi ne abbiamo affittata una per una settimana ( 60 euro al giorno per 6 giorni+1 gratis); comunque l'auto, è indispensabile se si vuole visitare l'isola.
Sulla spiaggia di sabbia bianca di fronte alla nostra sistemazione,ci sono lettini, 2 kayak e varie attrezzature da mare a nostra completa disposizione; sul lato destro della spiaggia,nei pressi del secondo pontile,si aggirano spesso tre tartarughe di mare con cui è possibile fare il bagno…sono molto socievoli!
Per attività/escursioni, Peter sarà sempre a vostra disposizione per darvi tutte le info necessarie su cosa vedere, come muovervi e come arrivare in questi luoghi ( A noi ci è stato di grande aiuto )
Unica nota negativa di questa vacanza, riguarda i fastidiosissimi insetti chiamati SAND FLYERS, presenti però in tutta l'isola e per i quali non esiste Spray.Per il resto, tutto PERFETTO!

Owner's Response: Hi both,

Thank you for this very lovely Review of your stay at Sandy Palms & it was a pleasure to read how much you enjoyed your first visit to Exuma.

You were lovely guests & we hope that we can welcome you again - either to Exuma or to our Casa Tramonto Stupendo in nearby Long Island.

For the benefit of future guests, the sand flies (which are usually only found around sunset) are prevented by using the repellant called "Off" which is available locally from shops on the island. Often, repellants bought in other countries, do not keep them away.

Best wishes & many thanks,

Betty & Peter - owners

Ciao entrambi,

Grazie per questo molto bella recensione del tuo soggiorno presso Sandy Palms & era un piacere leggere quanto ti è piaciuto la tua prima visita a Exuma.

Eri ospiti incantevoli e speriamo che possiamo darvi il benvenuto di nuovo - sia per Exuma o alla nostra Casa Tramonto Stupendo nella vicina Long Island.

A beneficio dei futuri ospiti, le mosche della sabbia (che si trovano di solito solo verso il tramonto) sono evitati utilizzando il repellente chiamata "Off", che è disponibile localmente dai negozi sull'isola. Spesso, repellenti acquistati in altri paesi non tenerli lontano.

Cordiali saluti e molte grazie,

Betty & Peter
