The Bahamas has attracted the rich and the famous during every holiday season. If you wish to splurge on your very own private island in this celeb-favorite location, here is your chance. Estate agency Savills is offering the Great Whale Cay island (30 minutes by boat from Nassau) for sale for $80 million! A historically significant piece of land, the island belonged to “Joe” Carstairs, heiress of the Standard Oil fortune, and was visited by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in the Forties. The L-shaped island boasts historic buildings (Great house, lighthouse, and church), rare flora and fauna, water sports, diving, and a private paved airstrip.
The island is sold with outline planning consent to develop the land into a luxury private island resort, with a commercially operated airstrip, marina, hotel, and resort homes. The prospective owners will have full control of the island and own 94 percent of the land, although there is also a possibility to purchase smaller parcels of land or the whole thing. The island with scenic locales, substantial cliffs, deep-water moorings, and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean is definitely a paradise.
Sure to attract several luxury-loving holidaymakers, the Great Whale Cay Island is sure to be the most luxurious private island.
