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.

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!

Those that know me would never expect to hear me use the word magical - it's simply not my type of word - but it is the best single word to use to describe Sugar Beach Villa.

While planning my honeymoon I read an article that argued money spent on experiences (i.e. memories) instead of physical goods led to more satisfaction. Its logic resonated, and without any doubt I am very satisfied with the money spent to get the memories I have from Sugar Beach Villa.

I was looking for as much seclusion as I could afford, and I definitely got it. It was easy to image being on your own private island. The property is stunning, and the private beach is just as nice as other top spots on Exuma (e.g. Tropic of Cancer and Coco Plum Beach). Tropic of Cancer beach is in walking distance too.

There was more space than my wife and I needed, but for a family or group it is perfect (and perfectly spaced out). The owner has a great staff that beautifully maintains the property, and keeps it very clean. We were there without kids, but I bet Glo, who lives on the property to help care for it, would be great with a family with kids.

Our only complaint was the internet service. It's there, but the Wi-Fi signal wasn't strong everywhere, perhaps because the property is spread out. The correct router was being used, so the best effort was made. It's kind of a shame that we're so attached to the internet, even at a place like Sugar Beach Villa.

If you want an all inclusive experience then go to a resort. If you want a getaway, then go to Sugar Beach Villa. If you're wealthy it's a no-brainer. If you're not wealthy still go for it, because I can't imagine a better return on investment (in memories).

Amazing property and service

  • 5 of 5

This private estate itself is a dream come true. Private beach, fantastic view from anywhere in the house, stunning master bedroom and all the other bedrooms are very comfortable.

Furthermore, our trip could not have been as successful without the great service ! Amazing boat trip to Sandy Cay and Elizabeth Harbor. The house is admirably clean and well organized. Flawless.

Can't wait to come back !

Thank you
