We present a quantum Monte Carlo study of a hard-core boson model with ring-only exchanges on a square lattice, where a K_1 term acts on 1×1 plaquettes and a K_2 term acts on 1×2 and 2×1 plaquettes. At half-filling, the phase diagram reveals charge density wave for small K_2, valence bond solid for intermediate K_2, and possibly for large K_2 the novel exciton Bose liquid (EBL) phase first proposed by Paramekanti et al [Phys. Rev. B 66, 054526 (2002)]. Away from half-filling, the EBL phase is present already for intermediate K_2 and remains stable for a range of densities below 1/2 before phase separation sets in at lower densities.
