Tropical seclusion and convenient access to civilization and air transport on Great Exuma combine to create the perfect private island opportunity at Clove Cay. Located just two miles north of Great Exuma and 290 miles southeast of Miami, Great Exuma is a 70 minute trip away via daily flights from south Florida. The 7,500 ft. runway at Great Exuma International Airport, with a major new state of the art terminal terminal and updated FBO, can accomodate both Commercial and private Jets. From there Clove Cay is just a 17-mile drive followed by a 4-mile boat ride away.
Comprised of 144-acres, Clove Cay is situated at the southern end of the prestigious Exuma Cays with barrier islands to the east creating calm, protected azure seas with deep water channels on either side of the island. Clove Cay has well over 2 miles of oceanfront with beautiful natural amenities such as tall mature trees, 30 ft elevations and three delightful beaches. The island is home to a 3,000 Sq ft home and several out buildings, now in state of dis-repair, but with a sound structure that will give a new island buyer a major head start over a virgin island. In addition the compound offers boat ramp and a partial concrete pier.
Neighbouring islands are owned by celebrities, business moguls and are home to some of the worlds top luxury private resorts making Clove Cay the best opportunity to acquire a large Island in the Exuma Cays at a reasonable price.

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.
