Big Whale Cay
Set on 2 acres with 300 ft. of beautiful beach frontage is this charming home with views over the Tongue of the Ocean. With only a handful of homes built on the island, this dream getaway offers the ultimate in privacy, yet is easily accessible via Whale Cay's newly paved 4,500 ft. airstrip just to the east of the property.
With a new roof in 2016, luxury combines a fine island atmosphere at this beach house perched atop the sand dunes and designed to maximize the view. The interior is a warm blend of imported cedar logs and rustic terra cotta floors. Outdoors, a spacious veranda invites you to relax, unwind and soak in the ocean views.
The centrepiece of the home's open plan layout is the kitchen with a breakfast bar overlooking meal preparation. Adjacent living, family and dining rooms can be found on either side, with three bedrooms beyond.
A separate garage and work space is located half way up the driveway, and has plenty of room to store all of the home's beachfront accessories. All boats including a 24 ft Mako fishing boat and 2 vehicles are included along with a complete self-contained 25,000 gallon fresh water reserve with reverse osmosis water making system.
Power is from Solar and Diesel Generators.
Whale Cay is an historic island in The Bahamas once owned by Marion Carstairs, a Standard Oil Heiress and charismatic character who built the first homes, roads and runway on the island.

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.
