Property: The Private Islands to Call Home

By Lauren Jade Hill

Along with the seclusion only a private island could afford, each of these prime patches of land excels in both location and the assets it encompasses, not to forget those picture-perfect views. We take a look at the stand-out private islands for sale within Caribbean waters, and those that are just moments from America’s East Coast.

Bonefish Cay, the Bahamas

Vladi Private Islands

$9.75 million

Situated within the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas, the 13.5-acre Bonefish Cay exhibits the white-sand beaches the Caribbean is so famous for. In recent years, the previously deserted island has been transformed into an exclusive resort, with five buildings encompassing two luxury owner’s suites, along with six other suites to accommodate up to 16 guests. With its sheltered setting, verdant interior, and coral reef to snorkel to just offshore, the island is a stellar pocket of the region.

Buck Island, British Virgin Islands

Price on Application

The 43-acre Buck Island lies just off the coast of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, and since the mid ‘90s it has been gradually transformed into a luxury retreat. Currently for private use only, the island is home to a seven-bedroom residence, which spans 17,000 square feet, with unique design features such as a spiral staircase that was inspired by a nautilus shell. The master bedroom commands panoramic views over the Sir Frances Drake Channel.
