Sugar Beach Villa is an island paradise like no other on Earth. The serenity of the crystal clear waters and the miles of pristine beaches is unparalleled. It is a celebrity get away and the ultimate in Caribbean luxury. There isn't a vacation more relaxing than one at the Sugar Beach Villa.  This ocean front, seaside paradise offers a perfect sunset experience. With three beaches, panoramic ocean views there is nothing more enjoyable. Your day in Little Exuma can be spent by fishing, bonefishing, scuba diving or snorkeling, power or sail boating, bicycling, hiking, or exploring the island and its magnificent beaches.  We don't just have a beach, we have beaches. Our property is so large there are several beaches to relax on. Depending on weather and the tide, we have a deeper section great for swimming, shallow beaches for relaxing, sand to walk along, even a small private cove. We also have an amazing staff, that everyone raves about, to help you with any of your needs.

If you don't want a touristy, crowded vacay to the Bahamas then Little Exuma is the place to go. The Sugar Beach Villa was everything we dreamed of - quiet, private, large private beach, lots of space, swimming/walking distance to a natural lazy river (1-2ft) swimming area perfect for kiddos, and Kim (staff) was phenomenal. We had a private boat tour where we swam with 10-15 sea turtles that would come right up to us, played and swam with the pigs on Pig Island, went starfish hunting, and found some beauties. We also coordinated jet ski rentals through Kim and they are delivered right to the house. We had the best massages we had ever had right on site, recommended by Kim. Kim also cooked dinner and cleaned for us a few nights and it was phenomenal (Grouper was the highlight). This is a very secluded, remote, part of the island and Kim did a great job making sure we had transportation when we needed it. On Sundays, the island is mostly closed down, so I highly recommend attending Chat and Chill that day. There is a ferry that runs hourly that Kim can direct you to that takes you to anisland for a pig roast (don't worry it's not the pig island pigs!), fresh conch salad, cool gift shop, music, snorkeling, feed the sting rays, and more - So easy, so cool, and definitely a highlight! I was there for 5 nights and the rest of my group was there for 10 nights. Regardless of your stay duration I highly recommend the Sugar Beach Villa and Kim!

Sugar Beach Villa is a stunning vacation property. We couldn’t get enough of the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets overlooking the crystal clear blue Caribbean waters. The villas are laid out great and very well maintained with lovely furnishings. Liz, the owner, and her attentive staff Kim and Andrew, could not have made us feel any more welcomed than they did. There were 3 couples in our group and are life-long friends that live in different states. We had originally booked for 7 nights in October 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to postpone the trip to April 2021. Liz was very accommodating in working with our schedule and helping us navigate the logistics traveling to Exuma and clearing customs. They even arranged for a medical technician to come to SBV to administer the Rapid COVID-19 test for our return trip to the USA. One of our guest had her 60th birthday during the trip and we chartered the SBV’s twin engine, center console 33’ Donzi boat for the day with Andrew at the helm. We had a great day visiting several islands, swam with sea turtles, snorkeled, spotted manta rays and other sea life. We anchored and swam off of a beautiful isolated beach and walked along a sand bar looking for sea shells. The birthday continued with a delicious Bahamian dinner prepared by Kim. She did a great job decorating the newly renovated dining room as well which made for a very special birthday. During our 7 night stay, we only ate out twice and each couple prepared a dinner in the very well appointed kitchen. We used their pellet grill to smoke a pork roast and the gas grill for some steaks and vegetables. It was so convenient and we had a lot fun cooking while sipping on some adult beverages. The swimming pool is very nice which used but the beach is amazing and the water was perfect. We kayaked, swam and snorkeled the reef just off the beach. We could not get enough of how beautiful the water and beach was. Everyone in our group honestly said this was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Sugar Beach Villa is a special place and we are so happy we had the opportunity to enjoy it. We send our sincerest thanks to Liz, Cameron, Kim and Andrew for all their hospitality and efforts welcoming us to Sugar Beach Villa. It was a perfect vacation and we will look forward to returning sometime soon.

We stayed at SBV in March of 2018 with a family of 4 along with two other couples. Our children (ages 8 & 5) were in heaven with the private beach & grounds around the property. The accommodations are top shelf as we have stayed at several other rental houses on Exuma-- SBV was the best of all of them. Nice that there are two kitchens (a separate one private chefs), and incredible privacy with all the bedrooms & guest house. Plenty of nice bathrooms for everyone, as well as a great outdoor shower to remove sand before entering the house. The no see-ums & bugs in general were a complete non-issue with the breeze from the ocean. Caretakers Linton & Glo were most accommodating & helpful. Very private location where you hear absolutely no road noise. Highly recommend Sugar Beach Villa for family & couples.

We stayed at SBV the week of New Years Eve with our adult and teenage children. Booking our trip was effortless as the owners assistant, Debbie, was very responsive and thorough before and during our stay. Sugar Beach Villa is off the beaten path and about a 40 minute drive from the Georgetown airport and town itself. However, from what we saw, most of the nice villas are secluded which is the allure of this area. Highly recommend a rental car to be able to explore, grocery shop, and feel less confined to the property. The caretakers, Miss Glo and Linton, were always available and responsive to anything we needed. Chef Anne included! Book her for your entire stay to cook excellent dinners which were timely, culturally tasteful, and a great way to have special family time without the stress of cooking and cleaning! We recommend grocery shopping for snacks, light meals (breakfast), and alcohol at the grocery stores on your way from the airport to the Villa. Linton stocked the Villa with our grocery list before our arrival...but, with four hungry young men, we quickly had to make another grocery run. Linton and Chef Anne were both very responsive whenever we needed something extra (be aware that emergency trips to the store will cost a service fee). The only negative of our trip were the sand fleas. Make sure during less windy days you do not keep the doors open and stay out of the brush on the grounds! The Bahamas are typically breezy islands which help with the pests and add to the excellent climate! Boating with Linton was such a great time and we highly recommend boating as much as possible...the beaches are magical!! For a secluded, relaxing, and no stress vacation, Sugar Beach Villa is paradise!!

We arrived just a day after the hurricane and the staff had been working non-stop to make the Villa ready for us! Speaking of the staff, amazing and excellent and made our stay exceptional. You must go out on the boat as much as possible with Captain Linton, visit the secluded islands and the most gorgeous beaches! We highly recommend to couples, friends and families. This is the place to stay in the Exumas!

My family stayed at SBV during the Christmas Break 14-15. This was our first trip to the Exumas, although we have visited Eleuthera and other Bahamian islands many times. The positives: the house is lovely, and the grounds are well-kept. It should be noted that the villa is very secluded, and Little Exuma has no tourism infrastructure whatsoever (read: no grocery store). As such, there were no restaurants, in fact, other than 1-2 spots to eat (hardly qualify as restaurants) in Georgetown, prepare yourself to cook! This in and of itself was disappointing, which was compounded by the fact that the villa had no functioning dishwasher. We brought champagne and good quality wine to the house, only to find that there were no wine glasses, other than a few scratched up acrylic tumblers. Finally, though no fault of the owner's, the bugs were dreadful and we were eaten alive by the sand fleas. This put a serious damper on the holiday. There is only one television, this in the second smaller property, and the screen is perhaps 20 inches. Given that there was nothing to do, no board games were provided, we rapidly grew bored. Compared to other properties we have rented in this price range, this villa was disappointing, and whereas we have been repeat visitors to previously rented properties on other islands, I would not recommend Sugar Beach Villa. As other guests have commented, the beach is beautiful and the house is quite nice, but due to the shortcomings aforementioned, I would keep looking. I tried posting to Homeaway after writing the owner but the review section on his site was suddenly removed!!

Response from SugarBeachVilla, Owner at Sugar Beach Villa
Responded Jan 21, 2015
While it is not our practice to respond to guest reviews, in this instance, we feel compelled to do so. First, if you are interested in staying at Sugar Beach Villa, we would request that you look at every other single review we have received to date. If you elect to read these reviews, you will see that these particular guests had a problem with most everything. Our Villa is known for its spectacular views and unparalleled beaches that surround Little Exuma and not our television set. We DO have a grocery store and there are restaurants. In fact, two new restaurants have just opened in the last few months! We encourage our guests to have the house fully stocked with groceries and spirits in advance of their arrival and we have a chef available to cook any meal at any time! In any event, we take all guest comments to heart. We have already installed a new dishwasher, which unfortunately broke down immediately prior to these guests arriving. Please note that we have two (2) full functioning kitchens at Sugar Beach. We will also be adding board games for our guests. And, as our website makes clear, the Caribbean in general and the Bahamas in particular, are well known for no-see-ums, which appear early in the morning and at sunset. These are generally a small nuisance provided you stay in winds while outdoors during these times. Many of our guests return year after year to enjoy Sugar Beach Villa and all it has to offer.

Wow, what can I say!?!? Words or pictures cannot do this place justice! Everything was absolutely perfect during our entire stay. Miss Glo was a blessing and took excellent care of us. Linton was also very accommodating and very helpful. We spent 90% of our time in Little Exuma cause we prefer the seclusion and no crowds. We loved "The creek" area, which is very close to the house. The house (and kasahrina & cookhouse) was beautiful and very clean. The views from the decks are breathtaking. I know it can be scary to book something online that you have never seen, but I promise-you will NOT be disappointed!!!

It was our second time in Exuma, and loved it even more. We shared this beautiful house with another family with teenagers. It was just perfect for our needs. A lot of space for everybody, kids had plenty to do nearby the house (mostly fishing). The house was very well maintained, with everything we needed. Linton was wonderful, he took care of us well beyond our expectations, and Glow was very helpful and kept the house nice and clean. Linton's wife is a great cook, she prepared a great meal for us at the house. The view from the upper deck is unbelievable at any time of the day, sunset and cocktail on the deck behind Kasarina unbeatable. We look forward to our next vacation at Sugar Beach!

Spent a week in April with the family and I must say it is truly a spectacular place. The experience starts with the Owners who are wonderful to deal with. We were met on arrival at the airport by Linton (the property manager) on Easter Sunday (that's amazing). He is a fantastic person who catered to all our needs and went by the villa every morning to check that everything was ok. He also captains the boat, a definite must on your trip to the villa. The house is amazing, the set up, the decor, the views from the master bedroom alone are worth the trip! The house is equipped with everything you need, including a great number of books! There is a very nice lady (Miss Glow) who lives on site and takes care of cleaning and providing fresh towels, etc., she is wonderful! The private beach in front of the house is incredible, the color of the water is amazing ; we had the entire beach to ourselves for the entire week . We had one of the best family vacations we've ever taken. I don't believe you will find a better set up in the Exumas than this villa! A beautiful and peaceful place we hope to return next year!

As a florida resident spoiled by great beaches and a frequent traveler of the Bahamas and Costa Rica, I don't think there are any prettier beaches with crystal blue water than at Sugar Beach Villa in Litthe Exuma Bahamas. It reminded me of the beach in that Corona beer comercial! Sugar Beach Villa is a luxury home that is a perfect get away for anyone that just want to chill. The Pirates of the Carribean was filmed on Little Exuma and the movie stars frequently return to the Island and vacation at Sugar Beach Villa. As an out island, Little Exuma is an unspoiled part of the Bahamas where everyone is friendly and kind.
