#1 of 2 hotels in Stocking Island
Saint Francis Resort is located in a pristine location on Stocking Island. Enjoy miles of white sand beaches, diving and water sports, sailing, dining, and much more! A hidden jewel of the Bahamian Out Islands, located on amazing Stocking Island, a 10 minute boat ride from Georgetown on Great Exuma, the Bahamas. The resort includes 8 full service spacious ocean front Bungalows, a restaurant and bar as well as a marina and moorings. Daily jet service into George Town from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Nassau,Toronto and other Bahamian out islands. Slightly more than a mile off George Town's shore lies Stocking Island. The 4-mile-long island has only 10 inhabitants, lots of walking trails, a gorgeous white beach rich in seashells and popular with surfers on the ocean side, and plenty of good snorkeling sites. Jacques Cousteau's team is said to have traveled some 1,700 feet into Mystery Cave, a blue-hole grotto 70 feet beneath the island. Stocking Island is the headquarters for the wildly popular George Town Cruising Regatta. Our all inclusive packages for families and couples are in demand.

What's not to love? Great food, the most beautiful water we've ever seen and above all else, the warmth and hospitality provided by Carmen and Jeb. They made this trip our most memorable to date. Book it; you won't be sorry.

If you are looking for a once in a lifetime, off the beaten path, truly unique experience look no further. My daughter and I visited recently and everything was perfect. Jeb and Carmen made every detail of our trip memorable! The experience at the resort was more like a personalized bed and breakfast. The food was phenomenal and made to order. Jeb and Carmen are knowledgeable about the island and surrounding areas and took us to see as much as we could fit in during the time we were there. The water is brimming with beautiful sea life and every direction you look is serene and picturesque. We can’t wait to come back! If you’re on the fence about booking, don’t be. You won’t be disappointed.

Our family of 9 (6 kids, plus grandma) just enjoyed the trip of a lifetime at the Saint Francis Resort in Stocking Island, Exuma! The hotel is situated on one of the most beautiful beaches on earth! Truly it should not be missed. Pictures do not do it justice; the clear water is something you must experience. When relaxing with a book is not enough, there is plenty to keep you busy. Our kids had a blast using all of the resort’s beach toys, surf boards, and paddle boards. For adventures, check out the snorkeling at near by reefs or the blue hole. The resort will eagerly coordinate activities for you upon request. All said, the BEST part of our stay was the incredible hospitality shown by the caretakers Jeb and Carmen. From Jeb’s magic shows to Carmen teaching the kids cooking in the kitchen, these guys are what made our trip to St. Francis so very, very memorable! There is no doubt that we will be back as long as they are there. PS You will not go hungry while visiting. Chef Kiva prepares incredible local cuisine not to be missed. Yummy!

Stocking island is indeed a wonderful paradise to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Nestled perfectly between the Atlantic Ocean and Elizabeth Harbor- this is truly an ideal location. St. Francis Resort has incredible views of both the Harbor and the Ocean, often with untouched and prestine stretches of beach as far as the eye can see. Aside from the breathtaking beaches, Stocking Island is full of lush greenery and surrounded by wild life! Starfish, Dolphins, and Stingrays- oh my! As if the perfect setting isn’t enough, the property managers, Jeb and Carmen, make the experience a dream come true. A perfect blend of hospitality with feeling at home, as soon as you step foot off the boat, the stresses of everyday life melt away. Jeb and Carmen do an incredible job of listening to each and every preference and making sure it’s accommodated. From meals, to one of a kind snorkeling adventures, they work tirelessly to make sure your trip is more than you could have imagined. We can’t say enough amazing things about the service and accommodations we received while at St. Francis. Our trip to St. Francis was an absolute dream come true, curated specifically for us by Jeb and Carmen. We will absolutely be returning in the near future!

Reluctant to write this review as this is a small place and I don’t want to overcrowd it. Then I realized that was so very selfish of me. If you are looking for relaxation, quiet and sunshine while walking in warm white sand, look no further. Not fancy but fantastic if you want beach, beauty and good people.
