Going, going, gone! Bargain hunters at the ready – as one entire island archipelago gets set to go to auction, another exotic island escape has undergone a significant price reduction. Read all about it!
It seems there’s never been a better time to invest in a Caribbean private island, with not one but two exquisite private island abodes currently available to purchase for rock-bottom prices.
Already attracting considerable interest from a series of international investors, the latest price reductions look certain to speed up proceedings and seal a quick sale of two the Bahamas’ most unique private island properties: Bird Cay and Big Grand Cay.
Tempted? Private Island News contacted our friends at Hamburg-based island consultancy, Vladi Private Islands, to get the low-down on both of these low-cost beauties.
Perfectly positioned at the southern tip of the beautiful Berry Islands and only 30 minutes away from Nassau, Bird Cay promises a whole lot of island for only a small investment.
At almost 250 hectares, Bird Cay is tailor-made to host either a fabulous family compound, a top-secret business retreat or an exclusive island resort which makes use of the island’s colourful waterfront cottages. Easily accessible and with plenty of scope for development, Bird Cay really is a dream come true for island investors.
And the best bit? The incredible island has just undergone a whopping price reduction which has seen its value slashed to only USD 8.9 million – a mere fraction of its eye-watering, eight-figured original value.
Big Grand Cay
If one island isn’t enough to sate your appetite, Big Grand Cay might well be the perfect private island for you. Made up of no less than nine islands (Big Grand Cay, Seahorse Cay, Mermaid Cay, Sponger’s Cay, Felix Cay, an unnamed cay and 3 small rocks), this incredible estate is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to invest in an island empire with presidential pedigree.
Once a favourite haunt of US president Richard Nixon, Big Grand Cay itself is already developed, and forms home to a luxurious 4 bedroom / 5 bathroom vacation home complete with salt water swimming pool, expansive decks, a deep water dock, two guest villas, a sea plane ramp, a helipad and much, much more.
Set to head to the auction block on May 15th 2014 (put it in your diary!), the opening bid is only USD 1,950,000. That’s right – for the price of a London town house, you could be the proud owner of your own island archipelago. Read all about it right here!
