Coral Gardens is a very charming B&B, very clean, spacious, airy, quiet, and set in a beautiful garden. I loved the view from my bedrooms windows of the turquoise water in the distance and of the greenery all around. Beautiful Hooper Bay is a short walk away, and two turtles showed up and swam with me on my last day... More

Coral Gardens is a very well maintained, attractive and spacious home at the top of a hill with sea breezes and views owned and operated by the Oxleys, an English couple, who know the island well and can provide you with great information and introductions to people and activities there. Coral Gardens provides a safe, quiet and peaceful refuge and... More

Coral Gardens is a nice small friendly BnB on Exuma. It is very peaceful and well run. Peter, the host, is a fantastic source of local knowledge and always has time to provide people with ideas for daily itineraries. The place is good value for money.

My wife and I spent 11 wonderful days on Great Exuma this past December and stayed at the Coral gardens for our entire stay. Our main objective was to get some sun, heat and kiteboard while escaping the polar vortex that had descended into eastern Canada. Peter had arranged for Rolly, his "go-to taxi" driver to pick us up from... More

We stayed with Peter and Betty in late December/early January for four nights. Their B&B is very comfortable and they make you feel right at home. If your home was in the middle of paradise!

Having recently stayed at Coral Gardens I can recommend this B+B and apartment wholeheartedly. Peter was able to arrange a taxi to collect me from the airport which after a very long flight was most welcome. As I arrived late in the evening Peter had purchased some essential groceries which were very welcome and made my initial night trouble free.... More

I am a single woman traveler...and had a memorable adventure on Great Exuma. Peter Oaxley helped me organize a memorable time.
