Though you despise the idea of piracy, you love Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean films. No, you really, really love them. Everyone from your mailman to your masseuse knows about your passion for all things Pirates, and every time you run into the local grocery store to pick up milk and bread, the manager greets you with a hearty “Arrrrggghhhh.”
You’ve told them all that you’re the ultimate superfan when it comes to the swashbuckling films inspired by the equally thrilling Pirates of the Caribbean water attraction at Disney World. Your everyday vocabulary includes words, names, and phrases like Davy Jones, Captain Barbossa, yo ho, ship, and world’s end. And everyone knows your fandom isn’t based on the fact that Johnny Depp is Captain Jack. (Well, you’ve told them it’s not only based on JD, anyway.)
Wow. You’ve really got it bad. But there’s something you don’t have, and that’s no good.
So today, we’re making you an offer you can’t refuse. Actually, a brokerage firm is behind the offer you can’t refuse. That’s because for all your Pirates of the Caribbean fandom, we’re fairly certain you don’t own this fantastic piece of Pirates film memorabilia–mostly because you can’t take it with you, you can’t use it as decor, and it certainly won’t fit on your mantle. This piece of Pirates of the Caribbean memorabilia is part set, part setting, and part prop–a valuable piece of “reel” estate, you might say.
Brokerage firm Engel & Volkers has listed a 38-acre private island in the Bahamas located on the Exuma archipelago.
Little Pipe Cay, as it’s called, is located 70 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas, and is easily accessible by plane from Florida. It’s listed at $100 million, but for diehard Pirates fans, the island is priceless, as it served as the backdrop for the very first film in Disney’s scurviest franchise–Pirates of the Caribbean (2002).
“The island is an absolute gem and a rarity on the international premium real estate market,” said Colin Lightbourn, License Partner at Engel & Volkers Bahamas, in a press release. “It offers an unparalleled level of privacy and a wide range of unique recreational activities.”
The island is also the perfect property for entrepreneurs. Onsite is a 5,300-square-foot Colonial-style home and four guest houses. Altogether, the structures offer more than 22,000 acres of living and relaxing space, 11 bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms. The spread has immediate-use, turnkey availability, and can be rented out to tourists and other vacationers immediately. And the returns are high, as Lightbourn says that the per-night rate at Little Pipe Cay can range from $75,000 to $95,000. Yes, that’s the nightly rate.
There is also a private helipad on the island, as well as a spa, an Olympic-length infinity pool, and a deep-water dock for superyachts. (Because who wants just a yacht when you can have a superyacht, yeah?)
A separate dock on Little Pipe Cay can accommodate boats of various sizes, and after you bring your superyacht to the island, you can head back to the mainland to pick up your seaplane and bring it to the island as well, as the dock is big enough for it as well.
The island comes equipped, of course, with private, pristine, white-sand beaches that move out toward the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
And just remember, these beaches once bore, even if only temporarily, the footprints of Captain Jack Sparrow.
