Victoria Point Cays

What could be better than a glorious tropical retreat spread over two separate cays and nearly ten acres, located in a tranquil part of the Bahamas? The same, if it comes with a fascinating link to both Hollywood and literary history.

What could be better than a glorious tropical retreat spread over two separate cays and nearly ten acres, located in a tranquil part of the Bahamas? The same, if it comes with a fascinating link to both Hollywood and literary history. Victoria Point Cays are set just south of Mangrove Cay in the South Bight of Andros (the Bahamas' largest island), and feature all the required amenities for comfortable modern living, coupled with the surrounding natural beauty that only the Bahamas can offer. The property's two homes — a main house with two bedrooms and two baths, and a guest house with three bedrooms and two baths — were built in 1953 by author Nelson Hayes, writer of the book upon which the 1941 Paramount movie "Bahama Passage" was based. The film, which followed the intra-island intrigues at a Caribbean salt plantation, starred Madeleine Carroll, Sterling Hayden and a young Dorothy Dandridge, and was based on Hayes' novel from the previous year — which a Publisher's Weekly reviewer would much later dub the worst book of all time. Of course highly subjective, the distinction has only added to the enduring lore of this now very rare work.

Both of Victoria Point Cays' homes were built with 15-inch concrete and Bermuda roofs, and are served with electricity, telephone and internet service by underwater cable. Fresh water comes from the mainland by an underwater piping system, as well as from a cistern and fresh water wells on the island. The main house features a living room with fireplace, a library, a fully equipped kitchen, ceramic tile floors, front and back patios, and a gazebo. The guest house meanwhile has a small bedroom, a sitting room, a galley kitchen, and an outdoor bathroom with shower on the first floor, plus two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a large wrap-around covered porch on the second floor.

With beautiful shallow waters on one side and the world's third largest barrier reef on the other, South Andros is known for its excellent diving and bonefishing, as well as its abundance of conch, lobster and crab.
