This was our family trip that we've been planning for 6 months. We stayed 7 days the first week of June. Our stay at the St. Francis exceeded our expectations in all ways! Our hosts, Jillian and George were absolutely wonderful. Jillian was right there to help us make arrangements four boat rental and the water taxi to town. Their... More

I stayed here with my six year old son and wife for a week in February. The location is gorgeous located on an island with only a few people on it. The owners were very gracious and accommodated us when our flights got cancelled due to a winter storm. The views out of the room were fantastic with the ocean... More

My husband and I vacationed at St.Francis purely by accident. The sailboat we chartered in the Bahamas didn't work out due to technical difficulties, and we made a last minute reservation at St. Francis Resort. Stocking Island is amazing quiet with few inhabitants. There are no cars, plenty of walking and views from the rooms were spectacular from the private... More

We vacationed at the St. Francis Resort May 6th-13th, 2014. There truly are not words to describe what a wonderful time we had. George and Jill are the most amazing and gracious hosts. The grounds at St. Francis are immaculate and full of gorgeous views! The rooms are very comfortable, and the back terrace opens out to the most breathtaking... More

Just got back Saturday. Was almost reluctant to write this review as a I felt like someone who found a great restaurant but wants to keep it a secret so it does not get too crowded!! But George and Jillian are such wonderful people that we could not do right by them by not telling everyone what a wonderful time... More

If you're looking to get away from it all, St. Francis Resort is the place to go. We were accommodated into this resort at a very late booking while joining in some fun of sloop sailing during the 61st annual Exuma Regatta. The owners, George and Jill were great from the time of our arrival to departure as well as... More

St. Francis has nothing but sea, shore and sky and everything one needs to relax and enjoy life. Jillian and George allow their guests to feel comfortable from pick up at the dock on Exuma to drop off to leave. The restaurant offers lovely Bahamian food served in a friendly and helpful manner. A very special place.

There are so many reasons this vacation was great, and it wouldn't have been the same if we had stayed anywhere else. The St.Francis has an unbeatable location that affords its guests a view of the Atlantic from the back terrace of the room, and an amazing view of the harbor and Great Exuma in the distance just a short...

The property is located on on Stocking island. After a 15 minute ride from the airport to Georgetown, you get to the property by boat, courtesy of the resort. Once there, it is pretty well self-contained, with bar, restaurant, non-motorized water activities, ocean beach, plenty of walking...and decompressing. Although the property hosts a number of popular events usually frequented by... More
