LEAVE IT all behind and jet off to your very own private island in the Bahamas for just over £65m.
Incredible images show the tropical island from above with the nine-bed main residence standing out among the lush greenery, sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
Other stunning shots show inside the house which features four-poster beds, sleek bathrooms and spacious living areas as well an extensive decking area and large pool.
Little Pipe Cay is located in the Bahamas and is currently listed by Knight Frank for £65,118,500.
“A once in a lifetime incredible private island,” states the listing.
“Little Pipe Cay is a very rare, freehold, private island for sale in the most beautiful part of the Exumas island chain.
“With raw natural beauty as a foundation, the current owners have, over the last 15 years, thoughtfully moulded and created the perfect private island home in one of the most naturally beautiful island chains in the world.
“Little Pipe Cay is the crown jewel of the Exumas and one of the top private islands in the Bahamas, if not in the Caribbean.
“A number of thoughtfully located and positioned houses and cottages are spread across the island for principal, family and wider family or guest use. All have incredible seascape views and some overlook or are on the edge of one of the pristine private beaches. There is scope to add further accommodation if needed.
“A sea barn contains boats and water sports equipment and there are several hundred feet of dock frontage to accommodate small and large boats, with a deeper draft dock by the operations end of the island. There are a number of suitable surrounding locations to moor a super yacht.
“Discreetly tucked away at the far end of the island is a large staff and operations village, warehousing and stores.”
The island is accessed directly by sea plane from the private Odyssey Terminal on New Providence, adjoining the International Airport at Nassau, where there are 10 commercial flights a day from Miami.
Private planes or charters can also land at Staniel Cay close by, where a short, but beautiful boat ride connects to the island.
Little Pipe Cay is circa 70 miles from Nassau, 270 miles from Miami and 270 Miles from Palm Beach.
