My wife and I stayed here early July for our 25th Anniversary. From the moment we met Jillian at the docks at Exuma Markets until the time we left, we felt like we were among old friends. Jillian, George and the entire staff made us feel very welcome. The beach is beautiful on the Atlantic side and we saw 2... More

My husband and I spent four nights at St Francis Resort on Stocking Island off Great Exuma. It turned out to be the perfect spot for us. If you want your own swimmable and nearly private beach (we saw 6 other people in four days on that beach) that goes on for about 5 miles, then this place is for... 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

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.
