About Liz and Dale Kinsella - Debbie Yanco Manager

We have traveled all over the world, but it wasn't until we arrived in Little Exuma did we understand that the powder like sand, turquoise water and untouched nature could be ours to enjoy and share with those we love. It began as a small guest house that now Miss Glow, our caretaker lives in and quickly grew to a luxury sprawling estate. Our endless quest to capture the view and optimize the experience for ourselves and our guests became our passion and purpose for over 20 years. We continue to add to and update every inch of Sugar Beach Villa which is why this is the home for the most discerning of travelers that know and love quality, elegance and warmth.

We look forward to sharing this jewel with you and allowing you to capture the moments that you will carry for a lifetime.

Liz and Dale Kinsella - Debbie Yanco Manager purchased this estate in 1994

Why Liz and Dale Kinsella - Debbie Yanco Manager chose Bahamas

We are very private people and host people that also want exclusivity and privacy with view corridors that are postcard perfect. We loved the fact that it is one of the only locations with Boat access just steps away from our door and miles of palms and blue water.

What makes this estate unique

Perfect for entertaining, our home has a kitchen in the main residence as well as a separate kitchen house to allow a chef to prepare dinner while you are able to relax and enjoy your sunset in peace.

Perfect for spending time together as well as having some alone time on the numerous private decks. Nestles in the pals it gives you vast views and meandering walkways to the beach as well as the green of nature.

My wife, 4 kids and I spent a little over a week at Sugar Beach Villa. We travel all over the world and only stay in homes (no hotels). We have been to the Bahamas many times and this house is by far the most impressive. The house is more like a compound and is truly beautiful. The pictures are accurate but don't do the house justice. The rooms are big and the beds are very comfortable.

The house is very large and decorated beautifully. Very bright with large windows everywhere to take in the beautiful scenery. Breath taking views from almost anywhere in the house.

My kids loved the huge yard with winding trails that take you to 2 wonderful large decks facing the ocean where a set of stairs take you down the cliff to the water. This was their favorite part of the property.

There are 2 large kitchens that are fully stocked with everything you need, other than food of course. But if you don't feel like cooking there is a restaurant (Tropical Breeze), said to be the best restaurant on the island, only 5 minutes away. Great food (fast service by Bahamian standards). There is also a little convenience store that carries a few basic things also 5 mins away.

The caretakers, Linton and Gloria were wonderful and always available if you needed anything (we really didn't). But they were very helpful and kind.

Linton took me on a fishing trip and we both had a blast. Caught tons of fish not too far from the house.

Dale the owner was great to deal with and the entire process was very smooth from start to finish.

If you are staying in Exuma, you owe it to yourself to check out this property. Especially if you have a large group. 5 star all the way.

My group - 3 adults, 2 teens, 3 kids (ages 5, 4, 1) were lucky enough to stay at Sugar Beach Villa in February. It was our first time visiting Exuma and the house, property, staff, and island far exceeded our high expectations.

The house: The views were stunning from each corner or deck (of which there are many). The furniture and decor was all of very high-end quality, comfortable, and very clean. The rooms were all very nice, especially the master BR and the master in the other villa (which was super nice). The privacy, especially for a beachfront house like this, was, well, incredibly private. WIFI worked great for those like me who needed email from time to time.

The property: the young kids loved playing in all the paths down to the beach, the teens liked having their own gazebo or deck to relax on, and the adults liked snorkeling for lobster at one of the several coral heads right off the beach. We also enjoyed hiking (about 10 mins) down to Tropic of Cancer beach. Sunrises, sunsets, happy hour walks on the private beach, picnics on the beach cliffs, I could go on for a while....

Staff - Linton and Ms. Glo were great and Chef Anne cooked up some feasts. I highly recommend having Linton take you out for a boat trip for an island tour, snorkeling/spearfishing, iguanas, and hanging out one sandy cay. Again, we didn't see a single other boat or person when visiting these private islands.

The island: Little Exuma is incredibly beautiful with minimal tourist invasion. The local vibe was very friendly and we enjoyed exploring as much as we could. Both restaurants we visited were tasty (both local food and drink) and gave us the beach bar vibe we were looking for. The beaches we went to were all unbelievably beautiful, clean, and most of the time totally private.

All-in-all sugar beach villa was a spectacular place.

Spectacular Estate!

  • 5 of 5

Don't pass up a vacation at this breathtaking property! As other guests have reviewed, the pictures of the property are great, but the experience of how wonderful it is cannot be captured with a camera. There is a main house, separate kitchen/dining villa, screened outdoor dining/lounging area and a second villa; all are beautifully decorated and accommodating to everything one may need.

The water is crystal clear, no seaweed or seagrass. The beaches are soft, white sand and very private. We never saw any other people. There are TWO private cabanas nestled on rocky outlooks, perched at the ocean's edge. The natural vegetation between the main house and the ocean have multiple sand trails and offer a pleasant canopy of native foliage. We had plenty of areas to explore up and down this private beach. We even snorkeled and explored an area that is similar to a cove close to the property, seeing a lot of conch shells, starfish and other sea life.

The owners employ some wonderful people that will take care of anything you may need or any questions you may have about the island. We had the most amazing vacation, thanks to the owners for making it so easy to orchestrate. They were very attentive and checked in with us frequently before arrival and after. We are very thankful that these fabulous property owners have shared their beautiful slice of paradise with the rest of us!

Stunning panoramic views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful main house, very comfortable, gorgeous views from the main living area and second floor wraparound deck, simply stunning, hard to do it justice with words. A unique and very private retreat with multiple locations on a gorgeous property to experience the ocean views. Long walks on a beautiful and private beach, water spectacular and refreshing, sand is white and soft, saw no one else our entire stay. Linton and Gloria were wonderful to us. We knew it was a special place but our experience of it went beyond our expectations. We will be back, thanks to Dale and Debbie for arranging a special vacation for us.

We stayed the week of Thanksgiving. Linton, Ms. Glo, Ms. Paula and Chef Ann could not have been more accommodating. Chef Ann prepared the BEST Grouper and Lobster Thanksgiving dinner. The property was immaculately kept. We had two families and there was more then enough room for both families. Our teenage girls stayed in the separate house and was perfect for them to have their "own space".

We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area as well as the time we spent at the "creek".

Dale and Debbie were very easy to work with in the preparation of the trip.

We hope to be able to return as much as we can!

Thank you Dale, Debbie, Linton, Ms. Pauls, Ms. Glo and Chef Ann!

First Time in Exuma!

  • 5 of 5

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. The Villa is just LOVELY and extremely clean. 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! We can't wait to go back again! BEST VACATION EVER!
