The furniture in the living and dining room also outfitted Dillet's Guest House, B&B. Danielle's mom received the hotelier of the year award in 2000.There is a picture of Dillet's Guest House in the living/dining room.

What makes this villa unique

-A place for recreation and relaxation.

-You are immediately on the beach.

-You can see the sea from 99% of the vistas in the house

-The villa is built on a 30 ft sand dune, out of a seagrape grove and with energy efficient equipment, low flush toilets, solar hot water, grey water catchment tanks for irrigation, a water softening system is on site and well and city water from a reverse osmosis plant.

For the mother nature lovers.The house is preped for solar electricity (Photovoltaics) which we hope to put in soon.The benefit is that it will be here for you and your children to enjoy for years to come.

-The beach is a couple of miles long and as fast as you can walk down a sand dune, is how long it takes for you to get in the water.

-There are no other properties on this site.

Inti Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great week we had at Inti Villa! The house had an amazing view! It was also centrally located on the island so we were able to get to southern and northern points easily....but make sure you rent a car! We enjoyed our stay in Exuma very much! Thank you, Danielle for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Wonderful house on a beautiful beach !

  • 5 of 5

Inti Villa is Danielle's beautiful private home that is available for vacationers to enjoy, and enjoy we did!!!

We are very pleased with the choice we made to book with Danielle. She worked thru the booking process with us via email and personal phone calls. We were fortunate to have booked this great home for the first week of the new year 2018 !

We followed Danielle's directions from the airport to the villa ,which is only a short car ride from the airport (no need to worry about air traffic noise).

Danielle flew over from Nassau to greet and welcome us into her home, where she did a walk thru with our family showing us where everything was located and explained to us where there were some local shops to pick up snacks and beverages before leaving us to settle in.

Upon settling in we found that the villa was exactly as we expected , on the second level were two private very roomy and comfortable bedrooms, both with on suite bathrooms plenty of bedding and towels and an awesome balcony to overlook the ocean. On the main floor was the open great room , beautiful kitchen and a half bath.

We used the kitchen most days to prepare breakfast then packed a lunch for beach exploring.

Only steps to the almost private beach and powder like sand, with a great view of Three Sisters Rock we mostly walked this beach in the mornings and evenings before exploring and sightseeing this beautiful island.

Upon returning from our days adventures we found the villa very welcoming and comfortable. We prepared a couple of dinners finding the kitchen to have all of the necessary dishes and cookware and even a small charcoal grill.

No worries to get a wonderful nights sleep as the king and queen size beds were very comfy and most nights we slept with the balcony doors open to hear the sound of ocean, though we did use the bedroom a/c units on occasion and found them to work very well.

Danielle did call to check on us to make sure we were doing quite well and visited us again upon checkout, where she promptly refunded our security/ damage deposit. This was our second visit to Great Exuma and were pleasantly surprised with her hospitality, and would be delighted to be able to stay again at Danielle's Inti Villa!!

Exuma Paradise

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a lovely home on a gorgeous beach, Inti Villa is the place. The interior is nicely decorated and spacious. Danielle met us at the home. It's centrally located so exploring the northern and southern reaches of the island is convenient. Fairly well stocked smaller grocery store 5min away (we brought frozen meats/cheeses, no problem). Rent an SUV-type car as once you leave the main drag, road conditions are deplorable. Beach in front of the house is steps away, like walking on velvet. We can't speak highly enough about the day tour with Coastline Adventures and the Tropic of Cancer beach (we went twice). Only downside is a lack of beach chairs

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to vacation in the Exumas this year and it was the best decision we could have made! This was our first time visiting these islands - It will definitely not be our last.

A big reason we enjoyed it so much was because we stayed at Danielle's beautiful home - That probably has the nicest ocean views I've ever seen in my life. The beach is super private and secluded and sitting on the deck in the evening drinking a few cocktails or beers was very peaceful and relaxing. (The pictures really do not do it show just how wonderful this place is).

It was a also a great central spot in terms of being able to head north or south to the different beaches, locations, and sights on the island. Everything felt like it was within a 30-40 minute drive. Even heading down to little Exuma to see the Tropic of Cancer beach and surrounding area seemed very quick, even though it looked far on the GPS map.

There are a lot of little local places to eat near Danielle's and everything is either right on the beach, or has a close beach view, and this house was smack dab in the middle of it all. Super close to the airport, Georgetown, the Fish Fry (you have to try Wonderation - amazing food!), and some of the greatest beaches in the Caribbean.

We even hired a local masseuse to come to the house and give us Swedish massages on the back porch. There is nothing like getting a massage and hearing the sound of the waves as the ocean breeze gently brushes pat you. Pure heaven!

So a HUGE thanks to Danielle for allowing us to stay at her house and really making this one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken. We will be back soon!!!

P.S. Danielle made a joke about only having 5 star reviews makes the reviews seem fake, and I really tried hard to think of a reason to give her 4, but I couldn't do it. I wish I could give her 10 stars. Thanks again, Danielle!

HARDEST PLACE WE'VE EVER HAD TO LEAVE.......

  • 5 of 5

Words don't describe this place.... Why aren't there many reviews?? We don't want too many people to know about this place and book it out forever. Be prepared to go into depression when you have to leave... You will dream about ti until you return.. The owner - Danielle - Is amazing. Take a nice gift to her (my suggestion). Give her a hug and a kiss from Bob and Hellen www.surfandskate.com

Love and miss you Dano............
