About this villa

Experience a true island paradise at Sugar Beach Villa, Exuma’s only sprawling estate with 1000 feet of pristine, private beachfront next to Tropic of Cancer Beach. Whether you are a couple in search of romance and relaxation, or a family in search of the vacation of a lifetime, Sugar Beach Villa provides unparalleled island perfection.

Previously featured in The World’s Most Luxurious Homes, CNBC, Architectural Digest, WSJ and the LA Times - Sugar Beach Villa is a one-of-a-kind private estate on the island of Exuma that features Liz Edlich’s eye for design, and is built within the island’s natural riches, making it the crown jewel of Exuma’s stunning coastline.

The incomparable luxury of 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 like non other. It is truly the ultimate in Caribbean luxury.

With panoramic views of endless crystal blue ocean, a luxurious pool, wrap around decks, multiple master suites and private guest cottages - no detail was too small when designing this island sanctuary. Ultimate privacy and generous living spaces make this celebrity hideaway an entertainer’s dream.

Our Lagoon style pool, 12-person jacuzzi and expansive decks provide sparkling ocean views and easy lounging from morning until night. Lush, palm-lined paths lead to our sandy Sugar Beach and one of three private decks. Luxurious cabanas provide the ultimate accommodations for sipping cocktails while gazing at the turquoise clear water.

This estate compound includes a sprawling main house with a large master bedroom featuring 180 degree ocean views and private decks right off of the pool. Three additional ensuite bedrooms are on the pool level.

The great room, dining room, and kitchen are on the breezy second floor where you can enjoy views of Turtle Cay, Pidgeon Cay and more.

Whether you’re watching the magnificent sunrise with your morning coffee or reliving the day with loved ones at sunset - you can be sure to find cozy spots to share and appreciate the unique and secluded ambiance. Day beds, rocking chairs and lounge areas are at every corner to help you capture the island magic from sunrise to sunset.

The compound also houses Dream Cove Cottage, a romantic and airy living space featuring a full kitchen, bath and living area off the Sugar Beach pool with its own ocean view deck. It is the perfect spot for quiet privacy while still being steps away from the pool, beach and gathering areas.

Casuarina Cottage is an exquisite Master Suite with stunning ocean views, private dining area, and a beautiful his-and-hers bathroom featuring a dual shower, king bed, bar and refrigerator. Wrap around decks lead to a sunset deck and outdoor gym area.

Our outdoor screened in dining cottage is the perfect place to enjoy lunch or dinner while nestled in the palms and taking in the breathtaking ocean views.

Chat N Chill Kitchen House is perfect for meal preparation by Sugar Beach Villa’s private chef or for you to gather with loved ones while you prepare your favorite fare.

Beach Bound? We don't just have a beach, we have beaches! Our property is set in the serenity of hundreds of lush palm trees that were carefully preserved as we constructed paradise, and provide the ultimate harmony between nature and luxury. Our decks with fluffy lounge chairs float just above the white, sandy

beach for a beautiful and relaxing view, all appointed with shade or sun depending on your personal pleasure.

Sugar Beach Villa is located next to one of the only estuaries with a mangrove river inlet - perfect for kayaking, bone fishing or just floating on rafts as the tides change. Kayaks and snorkeling equipment are available to explore the infamous Tropic of Cancer Beach. Spear and fish the local catch, conch, or lobster right in front of the villa’s reef. Your day in Little Exuma can also be spent power or sail boating, bicycling, hiking, or exploring the island and its magnificent beaches. Golf outings at one of the most picturesque Greg Norman courses worldwide await you just 45 minutes from Sugar Beach Villa.

We are just 5 minutes away from two great local restaurants on the seaside in Williamstown, along with the historical salt pond, old ship marker and cannon. Make sure to stop at Mom’s Bakery for warm hugs, cakes and delicious coconut breads. More dining options and nightlife are just a 15-25 minute drive away, in Georgetown.

Swimming with the pigs at Exuma Point is an island favorite. Instead of dealing with boats and tourists, Exuma provides the rare opportunity to have time alone with the famous swimming pigs and protected iguanas. After your excursion you can enjoy fresh fish, conch, lobster and other local fare at Exuma Point restaurant.

Our guests are amazed by our 5-star service and incredible staff who welcome you as part of the Sugar Beach family.

    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 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.

    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!!

    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.

    A week in Paradise!

    We arrived at Sugar Beach Villa after a long day of travel. At first we were a bit surprised at the remote location, but it would become one of its most endearing features. We were a party of four adults and six children (ages 11-13), the expansive layout of the buildings and the property allowed everyone to feel as though they had their own private homes. The sun decks with amazing views, beautiful outdoor furniture and direct access to the beach right in front of the property were absolutely spectacular, and allowed us to walk the shoreline during low tide without seeing anyone else! On high tide there is not much of a beach but the stairs from the sun decks offer an easy access into the water to cool yourself. The Tropic of Cancer beach is also close by and an excellent option for families with small children. The separate buildings were beautifully decorated giving the place a luxurious yet homey feel. The wrap around decks were the perfect place for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The amenities were never lacking. The wifi worked well, plenty of towels, dishes, condiments etc. Glo, our ever present housekeeper kept the house spotless so when we returned from our daily outings everything was in its place. The nearby town of Williams Town offered a couple of local eateries giving us a chance to experience true local flavor. The entire property was extremely well kept and made us feel like we were the only ones on the island. It gave us that instant "at home" feel, where we could kick back and relax. It was a fabulous place for the adults and children to play. Sugar Beach Villa will indeed be a place we return to. If you are looking for an unforgettable week with lots of privacy, amazing water and sweeping views look no further!

    So Many Shades Of Blue

    My extended family and I just returned from 8 fantastic days at Sugar Beach Villa. The property is absolutely stunning. Each day we were there during the 8 days brought new revelations. So many places for family unit and groups to sit and enjoy the incredible views that come with such a paradise setting. The owners have gone out of their way to create an atmosphere that fosters togetherness and unity. The property is also laid out in a manner that allows each individual family unit to have privacy when they desire it. Oh yea, and don't forgot to look up at night as the stars are simply amazing. You are left with a simple feeling of awe ! We also utilized the services of Chef Anne for breakfast and dinner each day and I must say she is a true artist. When we returned to our home in Cleveland several of us have been left asking, where is Chef Anne? Also, Ms Glo took immaculate care of the property and ourselves while we were there . And now on to the surrounding beaches, words cannot describe how wonderful and fresh they are. We hired a boat captain for half of the days we were there and were never disappointed with the days adventure. I have never seen water with so many colors of blue matched up against lengths of beach that are seemingly untouched by human existence. The deep blue of the deep ocean matched against the aqua blue of the shallow areas contrasted with an even different blue in the sky makes one wonder how nature could be such a perfect artist. And then again you cannot match the feeling when sitting out at night and looking up at the sky surrounded by your family and friends. Sugar Beach Villa is a very special place and you can be sure this family will be back. But in the meantime we have memories that will last a lifetime. I look at Sugar Beach Villa as being the entrance to a world that unfortunately few people will ever get to experience. If you are lucky enough to go to Little Exuma do not miss this gem of a property!

    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!

    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.

    Wonderful property that is in a very secluded area away from the main town on the island. Beautiful views, decks, and second floor living area.
