Situated 140 miles southeast of Florida, Little Whale Cay is a true jewel: the closest truly-private developed island to Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas.
Few private islands in the Bahamian archipelago offer such a diversity of amenities and infrastructure. Among the many conveniences of the island are a private airstrip, fully protected marina, an infinity pool, accommodation in three pastel-coloured cottages, and a local site manager to take care of it all.
There’s even a quaint church for intimate wedding ceremonies, making the island an ideal site for an ultra-exclusive marriage celebration.
Bahamas Waterfront Properties is thrilled to announce that we have been selected to develop the strategy and management for the island, located in the Berry Islands, including marketing Little Whale Cay to renters and handling island logistics.
Having recently launched its’ private island brand, www.bahamasislands.com, Bahamas Waterfront Properties is expanding its rental and sales strategies throughout the Bahamas islands.
Bahamas Waterfront properties says: “We are exploring new and exciting ways to market the island to a variety of demographics. The proximity to Nassau and Florida, private airstrip, protected marina and accommodations opens up a variety of opportunities for visitors to the Bahamas who want an exclusive private island experience. And all of that is not to mention the fact that the beach is extraordinary and the surrounding cays and waters are equivalent to any of the island chains like Abaco and Exuma, but with far less people.”
At 93 acres the island offers a spacious setting for up to 12 people to be accommodated in seven bedrooms spread throughout three cottages, Little Whale House, Peacock House and Flamingo House.
The island’s history is intricately tied to that of The Bahamas as a whole, with its original owner, Wallace Groves, a U.S. businessman, responsible for having developed the free trade zone in Grand Bahama that is today known as Freeport, The Bahamas’ second city.
While Groves may have sold on the house to its present owners in the 1980s, his legacy continues on the island in avian form: flamingos, peacocks, Bahamian ducks and hummingbirds and other exotic birds can all be seen roaming the island, descendants of a great bird collection maintained by Groves during his time as proprietor.
