Whether in need of some serious privacy, total societal exclusion, or even just a particularly keen Bond fan, many of us have found ourselves intrigued by the sale of Little Pipe Cay. Titled as the most exclusive private island across the Bahamas by its brokers, this self-sufficient island is fresh on the market, for a cool $100m.
Located 70 miles from the Bahamian capital Nassau, Little Pipe Cay comes in at 38 acres of pure island paradise, with its lush jungle terrain, glittering turquoise waters and soft white beaches rendering the small island a bonafide crown jewel of the international luxury property sphere.
“The island has been left in as natural a state as possible, and is home to many exotic plants and wildlife. The sand is ultra-fine and white, the water crystal clear, and small neighboring islands can be seen in the distance,” says Colin Lightbourn, licence partner at Engel & Völkers Bahamas.

“This quintessential Caribbean scenery has served in the past as the backdrop to Hollywood films including James Bond and Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Naturally, Little Pipe Cay comes with so much more than just the island itself, which feels somewhat generous, given how utterly enchanting the tropical utopia is in its own right.
The main residence of the island, a 5,000 sq ft mansion, is surrounded by four guest cottages, making Little Pipe Cay the perfect retreat for not only just personal and intimate vacations, but to host larger gatherings of family and friends too, with 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms between the main house and the cottages in total.

The interior of the residence, as expected, is reflected within the guest cottages, which are outstanding pieces of luxury real estate in their own right. A cozy – yet by no means humble – ambiance pulses throughout the properties, characterized by the timeless elegance of the furnishings, which reflect the nautical island aesthetic popular with vacation houses.
Owners and guests of Little Pipe Cay will also enjoy the island’s exclusive spa, the Olympic-length infinity pool, and – in foresight that reflects the clientele’s needs – a private helipad. Similarly, a private deep-water dock also features, with the ability to accommodate superyachts and a seaplane dock.
Another feature that reflects the ultra-high-net-worth lifestyle of the island’s prospective owners is accommodation for staff and a 24-hour security service within Little Pipe Cay, as well as the possibility for planning permission to add additional buildings upon the island.
