There’s a major new private island on the market in the Caribbean: Little Pipe Cay in The Bahamas, and it just might be the ultimate private island in the region.
Set in the heart of the Exuma chain of The Bahamas, the island includes a spectacular main estate, along with everything from 24-hour security to a swimming pool to its very own “sea barn” with water sports equipment. (There are a total of nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms).
That’s along with several hundred feet of dock frontage to accommodate both small and large boats, along with several locations for mooring super yachts around the island.
Little Pipe Cay is about 70 miles away from Nassau, and can also be accessed via sea plane.
And in one of the most beautiful, exclusive archipelagos in the world, it’s got a serious price tag: $85 million, listed with global real estate brokerage Knight Frank and the company’s International Super Prime Agent, Edward de Mallet Morgan.
“This is possibly the most exciting property asset I have ever brought to market. Little Pipe Cay is a true once in a lifetime opportunity, an incredible private island that has provided a stunning backdrop to James Bond and Pirates of the Caribbean films,” de Mallet Morgan said on his Web site.
Unlike most islands on the market in the region, Little Pipe Cay already has infrastructure on its 38 acres, with paths for golf carts, several houses and cottages across the property and several private beaches – the closest thing you’ll ever find to a turn-key private island.
It’s also a short ride from nearby Staniel Cay, which has regular air service as well.
“Little Pipe Cay is the crown jewel of the Exumas and for me, one of top private islands in the Bahamas, if not in all the Caribbean,” de Mallet Morgan wrote. “In a world where people are seeking solace, or a refuge, or simply a safe and secure place for family time and where you are master of your own destiny, what could be more perfect.”
