Outstanding service provided by Peter and Betty. They welcome people into their B&B, provide loads of local information, have rental cars and will do whatever is necessary to help people enjoy Exuma... Exuma is breathtaking BTW! Great bone fishing... contact Stevie ferguson, Reno, Drex or Garth Rolle. Peter can help book this or any thing else you want to do.

Stayed with Peter and Betty in November 2015. Peter had arranged collection from the airport which was great after such a long journey. Accomadation is very homely and breakfast included local produce. We hired a car from Peter at a very reasonable rate and had the best time exploring the island. I had a basic itinerary, but Peter was on... More

We recently stayed at Coral Gardens B&B in March. If you like a good mix of adventure outtings and quiet beaches, Exuma is for you!

Very nice B&B. Peter gives you a lot of information about the Island, that's great! By foot it is too far from the beach, since you can not go directly there but have to go to the Beach Access which is more far away. Don't expect too much from the breakfast, but it's ok.

This location is pretty central so you have access to both ends of the island. Peter was wonderful and helped us set up all of our daily excursions while also providing a bit of history of the island. The studio is just perfect and is very comfortable - everything you need and nothing you don't need. We found it helpful... More

Exuma isn't an easy place to find good accommodation at a reasonable price. There's Sandles ( if you don't want to see the island ) or some mid ranged, uninspiring small hotels. Coral Gardens offers a simple but charming place to base yourself, well located and has all you need for your stay. The local beach is a hidden gem... More
