What Might the Winner of the $559.7 Million Powerball Jackpot Do with All That Money? NBC Suggests Purchasing Deep Water Cay

Get Swept Up in The Bahamas. Damianos Sotheby’s exclusive listing, Deep Water Cay, was featured in a segment of “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” last week which focused on the Powerball Jackpot and what the winner might buy with a portion of their $559.7 million windfall. 


What Might the Winner of the $559.7 Million Powerball Jackpot Do with All That Money? NBC Suggests Purchasing Deep Water Cay


NASSAU, The Bahamas (Jan. 8, 2018) — In an “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” segment that aired Jan. 3 about the Powerball Jackpot, reporter Joe Fryer had a suggestion for how the lucky winner can spend a portion of their windfall: Purchase an island in The Bahamas. Or, more specifically, Damianos Sotheby’s exclusive listing, Deep Water Cay.

Located on the eastern end of Grand Bahama Island in The Bahamas and just 130 miles from the coast of Florida, Deep Water Cay is a 91-acre island that comes complete with a private, paved 4,200-foot airstrip, three beaches and 2.5 miles of coastline. Oh, and did we mention some of the best fishing and diving in the world?

“The island is legendary for its bonefish fishing, but this is not your run-of-the-mill ‘fishing village,’” said George Damianos, President and Managing Broker for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty. “Over the years the resort has become a private escape for public figures and celebrities like Tom Brokaw and Liam Neeson.”

In addition to the marina that also has three separate docks, the resort island offers three cottages with seven rooms, four residences, a two-story clubhouse and 54 developable single-family lots directly on the ocean.

“I am not surprised this property was featured on NBC as a ‘wish list purchase,’” Damianos said.  “Between the world-class bonefishing and the five-star quality amenities, Deep Water Cay is anyone’s idea of a dream come to life. Not only is the resort ultra-private, but it offers the modern comforts and conveniences necessary to make it a highly-desirable destination.”

Four Seasons Takes Over Management of The Ocean Club on Paradise Island

The Four Seasons now operates The Ocean Club resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, adding one more property to its Caribbean collection. Indeed, the Ocean Club is now part of the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts family. Now known as The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas, the property is owned by Access Industries, the conglomerate founded by billionaire Len Blavatnik, who serves as its chairman.

The changeover took place on November 30 and The Ocean Club is no longer a One & Only property managed by Kerzner International. The Four Seasons also operates resorts on Nevis and Anguilla.

The Ocean Club is known for its Versasilles-inspired lawns and gardens that surround a series of low-level buildings that house more than 100 accommodations including several cottages and villas.
