This was our first trip to Bahamas and we booked the Hoopers Bay Villas which we located on a last minute vacation website. The cottages, while basic, are very clean and well appointed. The beds could be a little softer, however we did not come to the Bahamas to sleep. The cottage itself was much bigger than anticipated, with two... More

Me and My girlfriend stayed there a week during low-season in the beginning of July. We were worried about the weather since it had turned to clouds and rain the last weeks in south Florida where we flew in from. On the islands there was no worries! All the mornings started out clear and sunny and we had a couple... More

Location: The cottages are located a 5-10 min walk from a public beach access. Be aware that you must walk alongside the main hwy/road and cars speed by at around 40 mph. There is no sidewalk; I would not feel safe with small children on foot. The public beach access is down a steepish and sandy (and therefore slippery) hill,... More

We apologize for the convenience caused to this guest and his family. It saddens us to see that they have chosen to post this review when all of these “issues” were dealt with while they were still at the Cottage. However, we know that savvy travelers are able to discern legitimate complaints. That being said, we will address the “issues”... More

Dear Sue, I hope you will read this one day (we meant to write something in the guest book but forgot in the end). Thank you for everything! We absolutely loved the yellow villa!

My husband and I just returned from 8 nights at Hooper's Bay Villas in the Yellow Elder cabin. We had been to Exuma once before and paid a huge premium to stay at Palm Bay Beach Club because it was on the water. While the two places aren't necessarily comparable (PBBC has a pool, restaurant, a front desk), staying off... More

If your idea of the perfect vacation includes the sound of breaking waves, the most romantic, non-commercial calm beauty of a Caribbean beach then here you have chosen the right accomodation!

The villa was well equipped, with most of the things you need to have even beach chairs! Susan was always there and available whenever I called, and the place is adorable and well kept.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hoopers Bay Villas Exuma are authentic self-service Bahamian cottages. You will get a true Out-Island experience. You visit Exuma because you want to get away from the noise and crowded beaches. Coming to Exuma for the Disney effect is like going to Vegas for culture and studying the desert ecosystem. Exuma is rustic and pristine. There are no high-risers, traffic lights or fast food restaurants. What you will find is a quiet place to slow down, and reconnect with your inner self. Hoopers Bay Villas Exuma is the perfect place to relax after a day of biking, snorkeling, kayaking or relaxing on one of the nearby beaches. Recreation equipment is provided. You can take the kayaks and explore Hoopers Bay beach or your can explore the Mangroves to the south of the property. Some of our guests go bird watching (binoculars are provided). Each Exuma Cottage has 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms – one bedroom with a Queen bed and the other with two Twin Beds, great for families or couples. Kitchens are fully equipped and there are outdoor showers for rinsing off the sand, upon your return from the beach. You can enjoy the evening breezes on the front or back porches, grill your catch or just hang out with your neighbors. The property is centrally located and within walking distance to a well stocked food store and liquor store. There are nearby restaurants and downtown is only 5+ minutes away by car. This is a warm and welcoming community, the people are friendly and there is staff on hand to answer your questions. ... more   less
