If you are looking for a quiet, restful, uncrowded and pristine spot, this is your place. Stocking Island is off of the eastern shore of Great Exuma. The small resort sits on a rise between the ocean and the bay separating Stocking from Great Exuma island. The bay can be seen from the front windows of each room and is... More

My wife and I just spent a week at St. Francis and sincerely enjoyed every single minute. We were looking for something quiet yet adventurous and we found that and more. The service was great and the food was excellent. Rates, food, and drinks were all very reasonable. They had the best food in the harbor by far. We stayed... More

If your idea of the perfect vacation includes the sound of breaking waves of the Atlantic on one side and the calm beauty of a Caribbean harbor on the other (both viewed from your room and literally steps away); the most romantic, non-commercial, make-your-own-day place you can imagine; and with spectacular hosts who make you feel like family, then a...

I did not think such a place existed for such a reasonable cost! My wife, young daughter (17 months) and I were in need of some serious rest and, when we need time to recuperate, we find it in solitude and being in nature. Typically you pay an arm and a leg for a beachfront view with virtually nobody else... More

My wife and I had an all too brief vacation just a couple of weeks ago, and based upon the strength of the reviews on this site, booked for St. Francis. The resort was clean, well run and situated in perhaps the most beautiful island in the bahamas. We found the owners to be friendly and most helpful. The food... More

When you got to St. Francis' website, you see a myriad of beautiful pictures depicting a luxurious resort, crystal-clear water, and amazing beaches. When you go to St. Francis, you realize something-- the pictures don't lie.

I have to agree with the positive reviews - the property is beautiful, swimming off the dock and the beach were great, the food in the restaurant was great. We used the sailboat, kayaks, and rented a boat from Minn's to go exploring and snorkeling. All in all a great holiday. The only downside - mosquitos! They were really bad... More
