Peace and Plenty is a Hotel/Inn in the town of George Town and over looks Elizabeth Harbor. Stocking Island is across the harbor. Peace and Plenty has a fun pool bar. It is close to Minns Water sports and we have went to this pool bar after turning in the boat.
We have not been here yet-I have seen the bridge while on our boat-we plan on driving to Little Exuma and going to Santanna's to eat (they say the crew of the Pirates of the Caribbean ate here while filming) and to the Tropic of Cancer Beach at the end of May. We have heard that is the most beautiful beach in Exuma-I don't see how that could be since what we have seen so far, is so pretty-I will post the pictures when we get back in June.
This is the place we rent a car in Great Exuma-they have older cars and they will bring one to the airport and leave it there for you to have when you fly into the Island. (When driving around Great Exuma, you drive on the other side of the road.) Then you can go to town and do the paper work for your car on the first work day you are there. The airport to Great Exuma is GGT. You can fly from Florida or from Nassau. We think it is easier to fly from/to Nassau for going through customs.
We stayed here one night because our rental home wasn't ready. It is very nice and the beach and pool is beautiful. The rooms are big and spacious. We had one large king bed and very comfortable. It is a great place for a couple or a family with one child. The restaurants are very good, even now when we stay at rental homes, we still come here to eat. They had people meet us at the airport with water and cool wet wash clothes. That was very nice. This is one of nicest hotels I have been to with a lot of personal services. Look through this blog for more photographs of this resort. The link to their web site is below.
Palm Bay Beach Club-a place to stay near town-we are going to check this place out when we go next month and I will let you know how it is. They have affordable Villas on the water and a pool and restaurant.

This is one of the web sites that has homes for rent in Great Exuma. We have stayed at this house two times. It is on a beautiful beach- you walk out the back door and go down a few steps and you are on the beach. It is a sandy beach with out rocks. The house has an outside shower and chairs to lounge on. The inside has all you need - nice kitchen and two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. TV/CAble/DVD and a desk with internet connection. The house only has air conditioning in the bedrooms, not in the main living area.
