Big Grand Cay Archipelago
Rarely are Private Islands offered for sale in The Bahamas, given its proximity and easy access from the US mainland. Most are kept within the family or privately traded. We are proud to offer not just one- but a grouping of select islands that assure privacy and ease of ownership with new construction and infrastructure already in place at the northern tip of the Abaco Islands.
Big Grand Cay Archipelago offers astute Buyers and investors an intriguing, once in a lifetime opportunity.
Chris Cline acquired the estate in 2015 and transformed the private island collection into a luxurious resort. The estate includes Big Grand Cay, Bakers Cay, Sandy Cay, Mermaid Cay, Seahorse Cay, Spongers Cay, Felix Cay, an unnamed cay and three small rocks totally +/- 277 acres with 115 acres of freehold interests and 162 acres of leasehold interests with over 90 years remaining on the leases.
Big Grand Cay features two striking main residences and eight beautifully appointed cottages, all located on the beach or waterfront. An Asian-themed Great House is the Islands central focal point and provides stunning views across the pool, marina, and archipelago estate. Designed for entertaining and fine living, its interiors are filled with exceptional appointments such as an onyx bar, vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling doors and windows, a chefs kitchen, second story dining and a modern home gym. Just steps away and perched high on a hill, the original 4 bedroom manor home was built in the 1950s and played host to a number of celebrities including former President Richard Nixon.
A short buggy ride across the cay leads to three brand new cottages positioned on a perfect stretch of white sand beach. Two 2 bedroom cottages and a 1 bedroom cottage are complete with their own private spa tub and indoor/outdoor shower overlooking the beach. Hundreds of coconut palms fringe the northern shoreline creating the ultimate fantasy entertaining experience. Nearby on an elevated point lot sits a renovated, octagon-shaped cottage, originally built to house President Nixons Secret Service officers.
An impressive physical plant outfitted with generators and water makers, plus staff/guest accommodations can be found towards the islands southern end. Three -3 bedroom cottages line the coast, while storage buildings and a hotel-style building can house up to 30 workers comfortably and offers a recreation, dining and kitchen area.

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.
