About Marna DeVane
Ralph is a retired fire captain and Marna is an interior designer. This is the second home we have built and the first vacation home. We lived in Southern California between LA and Santa Barbara in Camarillo where Ralph farmed avocados and recently purchased a home in Las Vegas, where we now live.
Marna DeVane purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Marna DeVane chose Jimmy Hill
We had traveled the world looking for the best beaches and when we discovered Exuma, we found the most beautiful beach with the whitest sand, most captivating aqua warm waters and we knew we had found our paradise on which to build our dream vacation home. We were compelled to build it and we want you to find the tranquility and beauty we did.
What makes this Villa unique
You can't take your eyes off the beautiful aqua waters as you enjoy sitting on your deck or walking the empty beaches or swimming in the crystal clear waves. Enjoy the great restaurants nearby or order some takeout or cook something in your very own complete kitchen with both electric or induction cooktops or microwave or electric oven. There are many water adventures to enjoy to see the many features of the surrounding islands with swimming pigs, starfish, swimming with nurse sharks, feeding stingrays or just see where 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and James Bond movie, 'Thunderball' was filmed. Great places to snorkel, scuba dive, fish, or just enjoy the boating excursions.

We had a great time staying at Aqua Dreams while on vacation in Exuma. The property was just as described but even better. There is a beautiful beach steps away from the house. Communication was prompt
What an amazing time we had! We were met by the housekeeper when we arrived and she showed us around and made sure we were satisfied with the property. It was just as advertised and the house was spacious and had everything we needed for our party of 10. We had plenty of room to spread out and there was an abundance of towels and the kitchen was well stocked. There were so many ways to relax and enjoy this beautiful property from the patio dining and lounge chairs, to the hot tub, to the quick walk to the beach with beach chairs and toys. The location was perfect as it was about a 5 minute drive from the airport and the central location made exploring both ends of the island very easy. Marna was very responsive to any question I had and she gave us some good recommendations for things to do on the island. I highly recommend staying at this property and we can't wait to return and visit again soon. We will miss the super soft sand and turquoise waters and are thankful we were able to experience this beautiful island.
The property was wonderful and close to the beach. My children loved Exuma and it made it so convenient to have such an excellent place to stay in. We swam with the pigs, stingrays, sharks and turtles. We went snorkeling, and scuba diving. My son who recently got married had a cottage just for them. We loved everything about Aqua Dreams and Exuma
Perfect beach house!!
Absolutely beautiful and awesome beach house!! We loved every bit of our stay at this house and would definitely refer friends and family to stay here!
Best Vacation, Amazing House!
We spent a week at Aqua Dreams with our 4 kids. Marna could not have been more responsive and helpful - from where to rent a car, to where to buy food, the best restaurants and even recommending a chef to come cook for us one night. The house is amazing. She's thought of everything. The beds are comfortable and the water pressure was great. She has Direct TV which made evening movies a lot of fun. The house comes with lots of games, puzzles and everything you could need including every water toy you can think of. It was a vacation that we will always remember and look back on with fond memories! Thank you Marna!!
Close to beach and great amenities with all of the chairs, beach toys, towels you need to have fun!
We loved Marna’s house. She sends a great overview of the different activities and restaurants on the island which really helped us pick what we were going to do. The house is clean and very bright. Beds and pillows were comfortable. We loved beaching steps from the beach which was mostly secluded when we were there- only a few people around so not crowded at all. The water out front is perfect for swimming. Overall a great experience.
Short walk to the beach with boogie boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, building sand castles, shell hunting, sunbathing, many excursions to see swimming pigs, starfish, feed the stingrays, pet nurse sharks, visit thunderball cave, walk on sandbars, fishing for many types of fish, lobster, whale watching, bird watching, and shopping.
