Description

This peaceful and secluded private island is 24.69 acres in size with elevations of around 11 feet at the highest point.

With a variety of different shore types, Low Cay has something for everyone. On the west, the waters are shallow with a sandy bottom that is home to rays, fish, and conch. On the east, tidal pools with all their curiosities abound, and a colourful coral reef is perfect for snorkelers. To the south, waves come in from the open ocean bringing its gentle ocean swell.

Finger beach, with its stretch of sand 500 feet long that ends in a finger pointing towards San Salvador, an island on which there is much to enjoy. Its colourful history is just the beginning, and the gorgeous natural surroundings are sure to astound. The reefs just offshore are breathtaking, and are sure to lure in divers and snorkelers.

Low Cay, that shares a long history with San Salvador, was sighted by Christopher Columbus in 1492, and was the site of shipwrecks during the time of great sailing ships, and was recently the chosen location of a scientific study of the San Salvador Iguana.

Building an Island Retreat here on Low Cay will give you a whole new type of address (23o 56' 20' N 74o 28'52' W) and a whole new outlook.

John Christie was born on November 10, 1963. He attended St. Andrew's School in Nassau and later The Millfield School in Somerset, England, where he received his "O" and "A" Level exams. In 1987 he graduated with a B. A. in Music and Social Science from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. After graduation, John spent six years living in Northampton and Boston, running a small moving business and pursuing a career in music where he was the lead for a successful band, "The Floating Boats", that performed throughout the northeastern United States.

In 1993 he returned to The Bahamas to join H. G. Christie Ltd., where his father, Peter, is President. The first task that John set himself was to update all technology being used by the firm. An early believer in the power of the Internet, he then spearheaded the creation of a website for the company and, in 1995, H. G. Christie Ltd. became the first local real estate firm to go online. For many years, this site was the only one of its kind to be interactive, allowing users to search through the company's extensive portfolio of properties.

Today, www.hgchristie.com -- which has more than 2,400 listings and is updated daily -- has become a crucial component of the firm's business. In 2003, the site swept the First Annual Bahamas Web Awards, taking home the coveted Best of The Bahamas Award, the Best Programmer Award, and the Judges top prize in the Non-Tourism category.

John is currently overseeing HGChristie's continuing expansion in the Out Islands of The Bahamas, which his great uncle -- the founder of the company, Sir Harold George Christie, K.T., C.B.E. -- did so much to promote during his lifetime. John is a fully licensed real estate broker and has served as Director of the Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA), where he continues to take professional courses. A skilled photographer, John shoots many of the pictures for HGChristie's website and additional promotional materials. His other hobbies include sailing, hiking and snow skiing. John lives in Nassau and has two sons, Dylan and Kai.
