The Darby islands have been part of our family for almost 40 years. Little Darby has been a haven for friends and family who visit with us several times a year.
Why Eugenia chose Exuma
This property is unique. It is a 238-acre private island. Unless you request more staff only our caretaker will be on the island with you. The island's beauty is hard to describe. White flour-like sand, clear turquoise waters, amazing fishing, and total isolation from busy city life.
What makes this Villa unique
The housing complex is uniquely designed to provide privacy and quiet in 3 separate cottages. The main house includes a fully equipped kitchen, bar, sunken living room, breakfast area, and dining table that can seat up to 14. This arrangement is perfect for gatherings of friends and family, or for a romantic getaway. Our guests enjoy spectacular beaches, snorkeling, hiking, exploring local caves and ruins.

Peaceful, Serene and Beautiful
I stayed on Darby for 10 days. First and foremost, it is incredible how quiet and peaceful it is: no cars, no beeps; no people, no city noise -- just a gentle breeze and waves crashing on the far side of the island. Three beaches to choose from, but really all are great when you are the only beachgoer. There is really nothing quite like this place for recharging your mental batteries and unwinding in peace.
Thank you, Gleb.
We are very fortunate to have guests who understand and value the true uniqueness of Darby island. We are glad you had a great time.
Till next time :)
Amazing stay in paradise!
This place truly is paradise! Crystal clear waters--great for snorkeling and swimming--beautiful white sand beaches, trails to hike, places to explore. Every part of this island is magic, and the best part--we had it all to ourselves. The privacy and quiet were much needed, and we went home refreshed and happy. Already looking forward to our next visit to this incredible island!
If somebody would ever suggest we can spend a week on a private island on Bahamas, we wouldn't even laugh. Nevertheless, we were so very lucky to be there, and being hosted by Eugenia and Bill.
There are not enough words to describe beauty and allure of the island. The ocean is clean and calm, and water is very warm. The sand is soft and powdery like a flour. Every day there were variety of options to satisfy everyone’s taste: swimming along beautiful beaches, snorkeling on the corrals, fishing, picking conch, feeding and swimming with giant turtles, watching swimming pigs, feeding iguanas, and many more. Every night we had a great dinner with friends and family - conch, fish, fillet minion staffed with lobsters, wine, beer, and great stories about experience of the island.
It should be on everybody's 'bucket list'. We’ve fell in love with Little Darby, and would go there again and again, definitely.
So should you!
Spectacular Darby Island
Our group (14 of us) just returned from an outstanding stay on Darby. The island is spectacular, and it's relative remoteness adds to it's allure. The facilities reminded me of the wonderful 5-star salmon fishing facilities that we've been to up on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska: very comfortable, capacious and very memorable for us. Mealtimes with the food that we brought with us and cooked were very special. We snorkeled, fished, hiked, rode bikes and did some exploring via rental boat. Next time I'll bring a fly rod and more camera lenses.
I am very glad to know that you enjoyed the island, and even more glad that you are considering to return. We will be happy to see you and your family again.
A tropical paradise!
We so much enjoyed our stay on Little Darby! With it's gorgeous beaches, abundant snorkling, and the ultimate in privacy, I'm not sure where to begin! I've never seen so many shades of blue when I think of the water there. From the view of the sunrise on the veranda, to the sunset off of the back, there is an amazing vista from all sides of the main house. The little walkways to the cottages give privacy when you want it, and room in the main house for community to spend time with friends together for dinner or games. The fresh caught fish, and conch ceviche was amazing!!!! I will never forget!
