Private Bahamas Island Is up for Sale

A private island in the Bahamas, located 115 kilometres from the capital of Nassau, is up for sale for around $85.6 million.

Little Pipe Cay, which is accessible by seaplane from the private Odyssey Terminal on New Providence, stretches over a surface of 38 acres and comes with a huge nine-bedroom and nine-bathroom main residence, as well as a number of outbuildings and cottages.

"With raw natural beauty as a foundation, the current owners have, over the last 15 years, thoughtfully moulded and created the perfect private island home in one of the most naturally beautiful island chains in the world," reads the listing posted by Knight Frank estate agency.

"Little Pipe Cay is the crown jewel of the Exumas and one of the top private islands in the Bahamas, if not in the Caribbean."

"A number of thoughtfully located and positioned houses and cottages are spread across the island for principal, family and wider family or guest use," the listing elaborates.

"All have incredible seascape views and some overlook or are on the edge of one of the pristine private beaches. There is scope to add further accommodation if needed."

"A sea barn contains boats and water sports equipment and there are several hundred feet of dock frontage to accommodate small and large boats, with a deeper draft dock by the operations end of the island. There are a number of suitable surrounding locations to moor a super yacht."

"Discreetly tucked away at the far end of the island is a large staff and operations village, warehousing and stores."

The island featured in James Bond film "Thunderball" and two Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
