They say of the Berry Islands, 'all you need is a boat and a love of water - but the best way to explore the region is from your own, beautiful, private island.
Little Whale Cay is one of just 30 mesmerizing, 'Robinson Crusoe' type cays that make up the Berry Islands. Occupying an area of some 12 square miles of pristine, turquoise ocean, just to the north of Nassau.
The Berry Islands are some of the most beautiful and bountiful waters in the Bahamas, with the 'Tongue of the Ocean' and on the edge of a marine park, the seas are brimming with marine life providing a myriad of shallow and deep waters for swimming, diving, fishing, and all water sports.
Extending to over 40 acres, Little Whale Cay is completely private and has a beautiful, long, gently sloping beach below Little Whale House.
The main accommodation is spread over the two-bedroom principal dwelling, Little Whale House. Perched on an elevated bluff with a path winding down to the main beach below, Little Whale House has an open-plan sitting room and bar and then a living room and dining room on the ground floor, supported by a commercial kitchen with adjoining chef's accommodation. There is also a bedroom suite. Upstairs is the main bedroom and a large private sitting room or study.
In an elevated position in the middle of the island, enjoying gorgeous views overlooking the shallow seas to the west, Peacock House comprises a double bedroom suite, with a sitting room, kitchen, and outside terrace.
Flamingo House has four bedrooms, three with en suite bathrooms, an open plan sitting room and kitchen, and outside terraces.
There is also an all-weather tennis court and an infinity edge swimming pool, dining area, and gym, all of course with spectacular sea views.
Two of the leading features of the island are the 2,230 ft runway and the main private harbour. The mouth of the harbour is 27ft with a 5ft draft at low tide, overlooked by the old school house and adjoining marina stores. There is also a secondary, smaller harbour and a hard ramp for a sea plane. The combined features of both runway and harbour are rare for private islands.
The village comprises staff accommodation, stores, and workshops, built in classic island style. There's also an aircraft hangar, sea barn, and other supporting facilities.
The island was initially developed in the 1940s. There is potential to upgrade, replace and add accommodation with excellent elevations,particular ly along the raised bluff which overlooks the main beach and has views along the Berry island chain.
