HUGE BEACHFRONT APARTMENT SLEEPING 8 AND MORE ON BEST BEACH

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Great Exuma

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our 4 double (or triple )bedroom/ 4 bath/shower room apartment occupies the entire upper floor of our 'sandy palms,' beachfront property.

The spacious accommodation enjoys wonderful beach and sea views of hoopers bay which is regarded as the best beach to stay on in exuma.

Quietly located down its own tree lined drive and not disturbed by other properties, sandy palms is only 10 minutes from the international airport and 6 minutes from the capital,georgetown whilst a good range of local shops are within a 5 minute easy walk.

Two bedrooms ( king & queen sized beds are sea facing with large sliding glass doors leading to the large sundeck with tables and chairs for meals or relaxing and enjoying the sea views stretching all the way along the island and in summer offers marvelous sunsets. The two other bedrooms are garden facing and can be either twins or triples or kings and this gives a wide degree of flexibility for groups of families or friends traveling together but who want to enjoy space and privacy.

The great room, which runs the length of the building, directly connects all the bedrooms ( see a floor plan on the photos page and has a dining area seating 10, the fully equipped kitchen, a study area and lounge which leads to the spacious sundeck.There is also a washer and dryer laundry facility in a separate room.

Outside,from the sundeck, a large staircase leads down into our palm filled garden which extends to the beach where we have loungers, tables and chairs and kayaks for our guests as well as a selection of beach toys and games.

About Betty & Peter Oxley

Betty and peter oxley moved from england to exuma in 1999 and established the coral gardens b&b guest house which has been rated #1 every year since 2009 by the worlds largest travelers website. We have enjoyed welcoming guests from all parts of the world but recognised that some people wanted to stay directly on the beach.

After some while of searching we found in 2012 the ideal location, only a short distance away and named it sandy palms in view of the numerous palm and coconut trees in the 1.5 acre garden which surrounds the property.

We continue to live and operate coral gardens but are on hand to welcome on arrival and help our sandy palms guests during their stay.

Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Betty & Peter Oxley chose Great Exuma

Being directly on what is regarded as the best beach to stay on in exuma is very special, with a quiet but convenient location and a beautiful unspoilt beach to relax or enjoy as you wish.

Getting to georgetown, exuma ( airport code is ggt ) is straightforward with daily direct flights by both american and united with several direct flights a week on delta and air canada. There are several daily flights from nassau on bahamasair or sky bahamas.

We organise the short taxi ride from the airport where you will be greeted by our dedicated driver and either peter or betty will personally welcome you on arrival at sandy palms and show you around and be available to explain local facilities and activities.

What makes this apartment unique

Hoopers bay is the most protected beach on exuma as it is sheltered from the prevailing winds. The 1/2 mile ( 1 kilometer) long ,soft white sandy beach slopes gently into the calm sea. Guests can enjoy swimming,snorkeling, kayaking or finding some of the green turtles to feed, all from the beach in the front of sandy palms whilst we can arrange boat trips directly from the beach for fishing or reef snorkeling .

Great location, floor plan and cleanliness.

We had a lovely time staying at Sandy Palms. The home has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms which handled our large group with ease. The perfect beach on Hooper's Bay is just steps from the home and the owner provided beach chairs, toys and two sea kayaks. The home even has AC for those no wind days! I can assure you that we will be back!

Better than any all inclusive resort!

Sandy Palms was a fantastic vacation residence and everything was exactly as described in the listing. Peter arranged for our taxi at the airport and was at the house to greet us on arrival. He went over and above in explaining details of the house, destinations in Exuma, and other things to make our vacation enjoyable. He also checked in routinely to ensure that everything was going well, and when a small plumbing problem disabled one of the 4 toilets in the house, a plumber was on site within hours to fix it.
The house was very spacious and extremely clean & well maintained with all of the amenities of home you would want while on vacation. After touring the island, I can confidently say that this is one of the best (if not the best) beach locations in Exuma. The beach is fantastic and protected most of the time from the wind, yet is so private that we saw no more than 10 people over the course of the week. We spent the last 4 days of our trip right on the beach in front of the house and enjoyed every minute of it. Our kids fed wild turtles, swam with eagle rays and found starfish and seashells within sight of the house.
A small grocery store and liquor store were both a short 5 minute walk from the house to get any necessities, while a vehicle was available for a reasonable charge to get around the rest of the island (Peter made sure we knew exactly where to go).
I would definintely recommend this unit to any family looking for an authentic carribean vacation without the crowds and noise of a busy all-inclusive resort. Peter and Better were very friendly, helpful and professional hosts.

Owner's Response: You were the best kind of family group that we really enjoy welcoming. You all had the right attitude for a stay on this quiet & tranquil island & therefore got the most out of your visit with lots of beach & boating activities.

We are only sorry that you had to leave temperatures of +32*C & return to the freezing cold of -35*C !

Come back to the sunshine on another occasion - you will all be very welcome!!
