About Peter & Betty Oxley
We built Coral Sands to provide spacious,comfortable beach accommodation where guests can enjoy being DIRECTLY on what is regarded as the best beach to stay on in Exuma. We moved to this island in 1999 from England and have lived here ever since as we love it so much !!
Peter & Betty Oxley purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Peter & Betty Oxley chose George Town
For families who want a safe, quiet beach ,great swimming and also being able to see the Green Turtles that live in the bay then Coral Sands is the ideal location
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Ideal Exuma Location
What an amazing trip! We rented half of the Coral Sands property which can be rented in different combinations depending on your needs. It was nicer than the pictures online and for some reason Peter said this is a common comment he hears. It is right on one of the nicest beaches I've seen in this part of the world, soft sand, hardly any other people around, and fantastic for swimming, especially with young children without strong currents or overpowering waves. The sea is so blue it is almost indescribable. Peter was a wonderful host, making sure we got settled in and was available if we needed him. He works with a local cab driver who came to the airport to pick us up specifically, which made our arrival all the more fluid. Our two children ages 6 and 10 had a fantastic time. They probably would have been content to swim all day every day but we mixed in one adventure after another, snorkeling, Stocking Island, swimming with rays and sharks, a boat tour, fishing and endless exploring. Peter has kayaks which were great for exploring the bay. We took Peters advice and rented a car/van from him and were glad we did. We used it every day and thoroughly explored the island and beyond. We've been on other trips where we rented a car but one really wasn't needed but in this case it was good to have. The best part about Exuma was the people, they are uncommonly friendly and warm. Every little restaurant we went to was family run and we got to know the owners and heard some great stories of local life and culture. We mixed in a bonefishing trip with a local guide which was amazing.
Exuma is more remote than some folks may be used to. There is a Sandals but other than that the island is not for those who need everything handed to them in a resort setting - but it is by no means roughing it either with several grocery stores and more restaurants than days to eat at them. With a little extra work and spirit of exploration Exuma has many treasures to reveal (don't miss out on duff for dessert) and this was a great home base to start our adventures from. High recommendations all around, particularly from our perspective with bringing young children, they want to go back already. We told them this was going to be a "no screens" vacation and Exuma swept them up so completely we never heard a peep of protest. Thank you Peter and Betty!
WOW - What a pleasure it was to read about the great time you all had in Exuma & the very many activities you enjoyed!!
You hit the nail on the head when you referred to visitors having a spirit of exploration with the rewards it brings with lots to do.
Thank you for staying at Coral Sands Beach Villa & your Review will certainly help other future visitors. Hopefully, we can welcome yourselves (+ any friends or family members) again to Coral Sands Beach Villa.
Best wishes & thanks,
Betty & Peter
Fantastic Holiday ! Great Spot!
Starting with great dialogue with Peter and Betty before booking. They answered all of our questions promptly. They assisted with transport from the airport (Thank you Rodney) and assisted us with a few food items for breakfast as we had asked. (We arrived on Sunday after local grocery stores were closed) Peter graciously met us at the house upon our arrival and not only familiarized us the home but also gave us an incredible overview of the island and all it had to offer. The house is a lovely beach front paradise , well equipped and was very clean. We spent a lot of time lounging on the amazing patio in the hammocks. The beach is beautiful. Very quiet and great for swimming, as well as visiting the local sea turtles very close by. The property included beach chairs and kayaks which we made full use of. We arranged to use Peters Van for a couple of days which allowed us to tour the island and Peter helped with a tour itinerary which was awesome!! The vacation was fantastic. The rental was a success!! A big Thanks to Peter for going above and beyond to make us feel at home!
We enjoyed meeting you all & are so glad that you had such a good time staying at Coral Sands/
Thank you for the very helpful Review which will certainly help other families who may be thinking of staying & hope that we can welcome you again on a future occasion.
Best wishes from a sunny & warm Exuma.
