In the very midst of a sea so electric that you’ll swear it is made of incandescent-blue liquid light, sits the villas at Fowl Cay, a resort unlike any other on the planet.
A private 50-acre island in the Bahamian chain of the Exumas, Fowl Cay lies only 200 miles from Miami and features six gorgeous, fully stocked villas, innumerable secluded coves and white-sand beaches, a personal boat and guide to introduce you to the wonders of the ocean and a hilltop restaurant serving some of the most spectacular cuisine for hundreds of miles around.
Whether you lay claim to one of the six splendidly outfitted houses as your sun-swept home-away-from-home or you take over the entire island for yourself, you’ll definitely feel as if every inch of this indescribably beautiful, undiscovered landscape belongs completely and inexorably to you.
Stroll along deserted paths that wind charmingly through the isle’s luscious vegetation and fragrantly blossoming tropical flowers. Swing like a carefree castaway in a hammock strung between two towering coconut trees planted in the silky sand of a pristine beach. Marvel at waters that display every conceivable shade of blue—from aquamarine, turquoise and indigo to a shockingly clear diamantine translucence—inviting you to wade in, dive deeply and immerse yourself completely in its deliciously warm embrace.
Everywhere you turn, around each corner and atop each rise, a new revelation awaits, taking your breath away and leaving you awash in a sense of unfathomable tranquility.
A True Island Home of Your Very Own. Revel in all the comforts and luxuries of homeon a pristine, private island in the midst of an undulating aquamarine sea. Ease into a chair on your patio overlooking the crystal-clear sea laid out before you in an astonishing array of teals, greens and midnight blues. Whip up delicious meals and scrumptious snacks in your gleaming kitchen outfitted with all the latest appliances. Fall asleep each night to the melody of ocean waves caressing the shore and awaken each morning rejuvenated and ready for another perfect day in paradise.
Unlike most private islands, which require that you rent the entire isle, at Fowl Cay you can book by the house, giving you the truly rare experience of having your own personal corner of an exclusive private island.
Claim your own stretch of secluded snow-white beach as you step from your patio straight out onto the satiny sands and walk a few steps into the warm, crystalline waters. Leave your rich, mahogany-encased French doors ajar at nights, so that the cooling sea breezes can wash deliciously over you, as you drop off to sleep to the lilting lullaby of pine tree fronds dancing in the perfumed air.
Relax completely amidst the soothing hues and warm fabrics of the islands, as you laze away each languid day in the very heart of the balmy tropics.
Bring the entire family along and enjoy all the pleasures of home in this three-bedroom villa, as you share priceless moments in a new and exotic environment.
Splendidly situated on a peninsula that looks out onto the fast-running waters of Fowl Cay Cut and the glorious anchorage off of neighboring Big Major, where graceful yachts rock placidly in the deep, glasslike waters, sits Villa 20053, a two-story, two-bedroom house, whose every window and door presents a unique vantage point and an incredible view.
While away countless lazy hours reclining on your veranda, as you watch the comings and goings of sailboats, the interplay of light and shadow on the intricately hued seawater and the fascinating spectacle of the narrow, rapidly flowing channel below that abruptly changes direction at a certain point each day.
Take a dip in your personal fresh-water pool as you thrill to the sound of nearby waves meeting the sugary, white-sand shore. Immerse yourself completely in the infectious rhythms of the islands as the brilliant blue tides ebb and flow around your unrivaled tropical hideaway.

The Exumas was originally home to buccaneers and pirates, who plied their larcenous trade from hiding places in amongst the coves and inlets of these rocky isles, the 365 islands of the Exumas, spread across 140 miles of luminescent turquoise sea, have always held a fascination for lovers of the sea and for anyone who enjoys a good story and a great laugh.
