Hoopers Bay apartment description
Driftwood Apartments are luxurious apartments, 4* rated, stunningly located on the water’s edge of Hoopers Bay, one of the Bahama’s most beautiful beaches. They offer sumptuous, flexible and cosy self catering accommodation for 2 - 8, in two apartments; each one offering 2 double bedrooms with en suite bathroom. This flexibility means you can rent either one apartment for 2-4 guests, or both apartments for up to 8 guests. But, to ensure your total privacy, we will not rent both apartments at the same time to guests not part of the same group.
Driftwood Apartments offer the perfect place for relaxing and swimming on your own private beach, with lots of other things to do: beach combing, wildlife, historical and cultural places of interest. Right on the stunning white sands of the beach and its shallow and safe waters, their setting is beautiful, peaceful and relaxing, whilst offering all the amenities you need to make an unforgettable holiday come true.
The architect designed apartments are one above the other, and benefit from all modern amenities. They are fully air conditioned, spacious and luxuriously appointed. Both apartments offer balconies overlooking the beautiful bay with its stunning sunsets.
Each Apartment comprises the following:
2 Bedrooms, both en suite:
Both of the comfortable air conditioned bedrooms offer large double beds with deep mattress and pillows, double wardrobe, 2 bedside tables with table lamps; each has a comfortable bathroom with shower and toilet.
The Living Areas:
The cosy open plan lounge and dining areas (air conditioned) include a comfortable 3 seater sofa with deep cushions, and a relaxing easy chair. For your entertainment we provide an LCD TV with multi region DVD player and a selection of English language DVDs (NB TV stations are not provided); ipod speakers, family games and books. It has large glazed french doors, leading to the balconies, which overlook the bay and allow a cooling sea breeze to pass through the apartment.
The stylish Dining area includes a large round glass dining table and 4 upholstered chairs and everything you would expect in a comfortable vacation rental home.
The kitchen, with tiled work surfaces, includes place settings for 4, all utensils, microwave, fridge and small freezer; coffee maker, kettle, toaster, food processor and cooking pans; water cooler; iron & board. The hob and oven are gas with extractor fan over. The kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glassware are high quality. We even provide some cookery books!
There is plenty of storage space in the kitchen to store drinks and food.
The outside balcony, with its beautiful views and shaded by coconut palms, provides for al fresco dining and cocktails; it includes an outside table and chairs, and 2 sun loungers with comfortable cushions. Just the place to sip a cool long drink, whilst watching the sun go down!
All the luxuriously soft and comfortable linen and towels are provided.
The area directly around the house offers everything for a wonderful family holiday: swimming, snorkeling, diving and many other activities; wildlife in a stunning natural setting; wonderfully colorful local restaurants and beach bars; many local nearby excursions; and an unforgettable holiday!

- Driftwood Apartments are ideally suited for exploring this perfect tropical paradise, being centrally located on the island. Exuma is a holiday heaven for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Instead of nightclubs there is a local karaoke at the Fish Fry street food market; instead of up market restaurants, there are casual beach bars and street food; instead of watching soccer, you watch turtles, rays and dolphins. This is a place where you find total tranquility. Exuma is about 40 miles long and about 2 miles wide, with the eastern side facing the prevailing winds. The eastern side has the most spectacular beaches anywhere in the world. The western side is for the world's best bone fishing. Imagine being alone on miles of white open sandy beaches, or chatting with locals over a cold beer, looking over perfect turquoise waters....moreless

Year Purchased: 2010
About: Christine and Mike Thornton live in England. Their favourite places in the world are the Lake District and Exuma - different in so many ways, but also remarkably similar. Although The Lakes are cold, wet and mountainous, both there and Exuma share an amazing beauty and tranquility; places where you feel comfortable and are yet exciting; places where there you live outdoors amongst nature.
Why Hoopers Bay:
We discovered this sleepy island in 2002, fell in love with it instantly and bought a house at February Point Resort. We moved from there to Bella Vita and Driftwood Apartments in 2010, as it is simply stunning - there is no where quite like it anywhere in the world! We fell in love with the location and the layout of the property. Being right on the best beach in Exuma helps as well!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
As well as overlooking the sea and sand of Hoopers Bay, Driftwood seems to attract so much wildlife. Everyday you can see turtles and rays, myriads of fish, and occasionally dolphins play in the bay. Overhead you'll see sea eagles, and if you look at the firecracker plants, you'll see tiny hummingbirds regularly - not to mention our friendly night heron (mostly during the day time!).
