About Shirl Deveaux

I am a young Bahamian Attorney who loves the salt life. I love any and everything about the sea. Since I grew up in the hustle and bustle of Nassau, my dream was to build a vacation home on one of the beautiful islands of The Bahamas, and I chose Exuma because to me it's waters are simply breathtaking. You have never seen waters of varying shades of clear crystal turquoise than what is seen in the Exumas. Fortunately, I found the ideal property on Tropic of Cancer Beach. It is literally a 2 minute walk from the house to the beach. I decided to build on top of a hill to give me the best panoramic views possible, and I can tell you it is really beautiful. The community is quiet as there are alot of winter home residents in the area, and traffic is practically non existent so you can simply relax and tan outside in the yard or walk down to the beach and relax on the beach.

I currently live in Nassau, but I frequently go to Sugar Plum Plum on weekends just to relax. The reason I named this property Sugar Plum Plum is because when I was a little girl walking to school, every morning when I passed an old lady sitting outside her store I would call to her, "Good morning ma'am" and she would respond, "Okay sugar plum plum". I loved that, and so when I built this vacation home, I thought to give the house that name.

Shirl Deveaux purchased this cottage in 2011

Perfect location, everything we needed was in the house!

  • 5 of 5

Exuma was absolutely wonderful. The cottage made the stay even better! We were in a secluded area yet still close to the beach which is exactly what we wanted. Shirl was great to communicate with us and tell us everything we needed to know. We will definitely be back!

Great place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The rental process was very easy, Shirl is very responsive. She checked in with us while we were there making sure everything was ok. Everything we needed was at the home, she even has a grill!

The home is very well decorated and the ocean views from the deck are wonderful, you can watch sailboats go by. A short walk and you are on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the Tropic of Cancer beach.

Great Place to have fun with family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 8 days. Reservation process was very simple. The house owner Shrill took care most of the things for us. Advised what to take and what is needed. She is good on communicating and guiding!

This house is awesome place to have fun with family. Cant compliant. Well maintained. Believe me, we bought a lot of stuff, but when we went there most of the necessary items were already there. Great location, top of the hill, sit and watch the ocean all day long.

New condition, clean beds, more sheets, towels, soaps, many more, better price and lot of amenities for the price. We took care of this house like our own house.

The tropic of cancer beach is just less than a block and walking distance. We went there every day for walking. Nice patio, deck, picnic umbrella. End of the street, no need to worry about car traffic.

We did not have any issues. We enjoyed in this house. Even we stayed a full day without going anywhere just to enjoy the house and Island.

We miss it. We will go again.

She returned our advance sharply at the airport, great woman to work with too!

Thank you Shrill. I can give five stars. My kids and wife are missing sugar plum plum

Perfect house, everything new and very cozy and quiet. Only 1 min away from the most gorgeous beach you have ever seen. We had the best vacation! We ate fresh fish and lobster (not expensive) almost ever day. Or we went to 'tropical breeze' restaurant in Williamstown - delicious seafood!!! In SugarPlumPlum Shirl took care of everything, if there was a problem she solved it right away. We highly can recommend this cute relaxing hideaway close to the unbelievable beautiful beach.
