I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Exuma. We spent a week at St. Francis and truly enjoyed ourselves, the staff was amazing! If you are looking for the perfect place to get away to relax from it all this is your place. Once arriving in Georgetown we took a taxi ride to the harbour where we were met... More

My wife and I stayed in mid January for 4 nights. Gosh the temperature during this time of year are so awesome. I am use to spending summers in the Abacos, where it is so hot and humid. I was surprised how warm the water still was. Did some snorkeling out on the Atlantic side, out about 150 yards, good... More

I just returned from my second stay at the St Francis, and it was every bit as good as the first. My son and I were there for 4 nights, and George, Jill, Gregg, and Sandy, in the restaurant were outstanding hosts. All are prompt with responses, very eager to help, happy to give rides across the harbor on their... More

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

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
