6 Bedrooms, 7Bathrooms, (Sleeps 13),pool jacuzzi, boat, chef, 3 private beach
I have owned this property for 24 years and manage it with my sister Rachel. I absolutely love it and discovered it because it is known for it beautiful beaches, water and fly fishing. Little Exuma has some of the best fly fishing in the world to catch bonefish. The private beaches are breath taking and the area is spectacular. So few places left in the world with untouched beaches and crystal clear water. I did my best to build Sugar Beach Villa in the palm trees to preserve the nature that is unique to the island.
Rachel purchased this Villa in 1996
Why Rachel chose Exuma
This property is one of a kind! I designed this home and hand picked each fabric, color, pillow etc. I look to combine nature, views and breeze while highlighting the exciting colors that the sea holds. This is one of the highest points in the area so its views and Bahamian Colonial style gives way to class and elegance while affording you the easy island relaxed living. You will melt into this property that was designed for families or just a romantic getaway.
What makes this Villa unique
Located right in front of the most beautiful beaches. 5 minute walk to Tropic of Cancer Beach for long beach strolls and upon return to Sugar Beach Villa a real appreciation for exclusive, private living on an island compound becomes clear. pool, hot tub, 4 kayaks, snorkel gear included. A separate kitchen house is perfect for breakfast fare and all meals, and perfect for a chef cooking so that all of the commotion of preparing and cleaning escapes your attention as you relax with only the sounds of the water and the breeze in the trees. It is also unique in that there can be a full house and you can still find multiple peaceful places to escape, whether it is private beach deck areas, the 360 degree wrap around decks, the multiple beaches just steps away, it affords everyone what they desire, when they desire it. From ultimate privacy to parties Sugar Beach Villa is an entertainment paradise. 4 Dining areas, indoor and out door all with a view to feast your eyes on. A mosquito perimeter spray system and a generator make island living flawless.

SBV pure paradise
This is my second stay at Sugar Beach Villa. Having been here before I knew what pure paradise this place was but going back again just confirmed my first impressions of this beautiful villa. I took 4 other people that had never been to the Bahamas and they were in total awe. I wanted them to experience the island but they never wanted to leave SBV and I didn't blame them. It's a magnificent place that must be experienced. They all left with memories that will last a lifetime and I will be back. Thank you Liz :) Everyone made our stay so incredibly enjoyable!!
We loved having you and can't wait to see you again soon. What beautiful boat days and so glad you enjoyed our chef. You are part of the Sugar Beach Family.Missing you already!
This is our fourth visit to Exuma and this property was hands down the best. Like other reviewers have said, the pictures truly don't do it justice...it was breathtaking. The grounds are huge and there is so much space to spread out. There are three separate areas near the ocean to relax, which was a really nice feature. We used the kayaks a lot and enjoyed paddling around the islands off shore as well as Tropic of Cancer beach, which is the next beach down. We booked a boat trip with Captain Linton to the sand bars at the tip of Little Exuma, and that was wonderful. We also did some fishing while out on the boat and caught more than enough for dinner.
The staff was really responsive and helpful. On a couple of occasions Linton came right down when we contacted him about something we needed, which was unexpected. Prior to our visit we asked about a dvd player for some family movies we wanted to watch, and the owners were very accommodating and purchased one for our use. Very appreciated.
I would highly recommend this rental, everyone in our party said it was their favorite and they would love to stay there again.
Some details about the property:
-The master bedroom mattress was very firm. My husband was fine with it, but it was too hard for me. I found a softer rollaway bed mattress in the closet that I put on top, which worked really well.
-Paper products are provided.
-There is no office style bottled water dispenser, so be sure to buy water. We were caught off guard and so just boiled our water until we got to the store. Linton said he drinks the water out of the filtered fridge dispenser, but we didn't want to take a chance.
-No seeums were really not an issue. They were there in the early morning and showed up right at dusk, but we came inside at dusk and were sure to keep the doors shut.
-For those who are trying to arrange where family members will stay, know that the Casuarina guesthouse (the one with the bed made of driftwood style wood), is much roomier and nicer than the other guesthouse. We had two married children with their spouses and they both were interested in the Casuarina guesthouse, lol.
-They had a ton of snorkeling gear, and it was nice quality. We brought our own, but really didn't need to.
Sugar Beach Villa - Perfect!
Sugar beach Villa was the perfect place to stay for our group of 4 families! With access to the blue waters just steps away for morning and evening swims, snorkeling or kayaking it was perfect to keep adults and kids alike entertained! The accommodation was second to none and we were able to spend our evenings having cocktails on the balcony watching sunsets and cooking for our group!
Linton and Ms. Glo were exceptional in providing all assistance and any information. Once we figured out the Exuma’s market in Georgetown and got our supplies we were all set!
Fully recommend a boat trip to visit the Thunderball Grotto, swimming with pigs and Sharks, Iguana island and turtle feeding! All wonderful experiences.
Being at SBV allowed us to disconnect from the world but had wifi if needed!
Cannot say enough about Liz, Ms. Glo, and their constant contact and also for Exuma’s natural beauty and the pristine waters of the Caribbean!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you had a wonderful time and it seems like you really made the most of your time there. All our favorite things to do. Hope to see you back.
Looks exactly like the pictures!
I booked this property for myself and a group of 8 friends. The house was amazing! The staff does everything possible to help out with anything you could possibly need. I absolutely LOVED the house. The only downer for this trip was we had some cash that came up missing our second day at the house. I left $180 on the kitchen counter our first night in the house knowing that we needed to pay for some food/drink items that we had the house pre-stocked with. The majority of the house went on a tour and were gone the entire second day. During that time housekeeping came by and cleaned and we had some more food dropped off at the house by house staff. The housekeeper saw the cash when she cleaned up that morning and left it on the kitchen counter. The staff also said he saw the money when he dropped off groceries that afternoon. I honestly don’t think either members of the house staff took them money, but there were 2 men with the house staff when the groceries were delivered. We have no idea who those guys were. All I know is by the time we all got home (about an hr or 2 after the food was delivered) the money had grown legs and walked away.
As hard as I tried to make sure the housekeeper knew that we were not accusing her of taking the money, she absolutely thought we were accusing her and therefore wasn’t the most polite for the remainder of our stay.
Aside of the missing cash, we loved the house. I would totally stay here again, I just wouldn’t leave any money laying around.
I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I knew this happened as we take this very seriously and have never had issue before. I will circle back with our team there to be sure this doesnt happen again. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.
Best Vacation Ever!!!
The William's Town property is an incredibly beautiful property with luxury, serenity and location. Being able to walk to three beaches from your front door combined with the opportunity to make your own meals and relax was just what we were looking for. We traveled with our 5 and 12 year old sons as well as close friends with an 18 month old son. No problems at all making it a safe environment and the walk distance lagoon was a perfect place to let the kids play in the water without worrying about waves or the tides. The staff was wonderful and engaging giving us as much space or support as we wanted. It's important to understand though that Little Exuma is not a developed tourist focused island. There's none of the duty free shops, tours or night life like you would get in Grand Bahamas. For us, that's exactly what we wanted but that's not for everyone. We have never gone to the same property twice in all of our travels due to the appetite for new experiences but this property is the exception - we'll be back! 100% recommended from me!
Just what we were looking for!
I wanted to take the entire family of five teenage grand children and four adults to a secluded tropical paradise. and we surely found what we were looking for at Sugar Beach Villa. Located on several acres of beautifully landscaped tropical foliage, the house was extremely well furnished and had the added benefit of two separate cottages just steps from the main house so we could really spread out. The view of the water and skies were magnificent in all directions and there was easy snorkeling right off the beach which was only a short distance away. We all had a very memorable, special week.
So happy you enjoyed your time in paradise. Hope to see you back. We have gotten kayaks since your stay which makes it great for exploring. Hope to have you back!
