Top 10 Private Islands

According to The Telegraph

The Telegraph, a well known and trusted United Kingdom newspaper, recently released an article listing the Top 10 Private Islands. In that article list dated November 15th 2013, Damianos Sotheby's International Realty had two Bahamas private islands on it. One holding the number 4 slot while the other property takes the number 2 spot!

Private Island Paradise

THE BAHAMAS, November 21, 2013 – The Telegraph, a UK newspaper with a Saturday circulation of 1,714,000 ranked Private Island Paradise in the Exumas, Bahamas number 2 on their top 10 private island list. Ranked amongst an archipelago of islands stretching from Italy to the British Virgin Islands, on a list that celebrates unique topography, first-class accessibility and footprint free beaches, the beautiful 38-acre island in Pipe Creek also received the coveted Property of The Week title. The Telegraph’s property maven Liz Meek describes the private island as,

"[Located] half an hour from Nassau, and an hour from Palm Beach, this gorgeous island combines a remote feel with convenience. You could be back in London in less than twelve hours – if you wanted. There is all the turquoise sea and white sand you could want, as well as enough features to keep your extended family and friends amused for weeks. Between them the main and guest cottages sleep 22, and there is also a stone chapel, tennis courts, helipad and dock.


Sandy Cay

Additionally Damianos Sotheby’s International Real Estate private island listing, Sandy Cay in Abaco, holds the number 4 spot on Liz Meek’s international list of top 10 private islands for sale around the world. Liz Meek notes the amenities included with the purchase of Sandy Cay, an eight-acre island that “comes with its own boat lift, two dock slips and a harbour, with five boats. As well as a diving shop and fitness centre, there are four residences. The main house has six beds with rooms opening on to covered terraces.”

George Damianos, the president of Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty and the realtor who recently added Children’s Bay Cay, a 167-acre private island also set in the Exuma Cays to his long history of private island sales, says of the article,

"It’s exciting to have two of our private islands in the top 10 for sale. Private Island Paradise in the Exuma Cays is really second to none, it has all the bells and whistles. It’s well-built, planned and well put together. Sandy Cay is perfectly situated in the Sea of Abaco with its close proximity to the international airport, and it has the added benefit of electricity from the mainland.”
