The WSJ is reporting that Tyler Perry purchased a private island off the coast of the Bahamas in 2009. Tyler’s new island is called White Bay Cay and is just over 25 acres in size. He also purchased a neighboring seven acre island. He has started building a tropical/Balinese-style house along with several bungalows for guests.
The string of over 300 islands off the coast of Florida are largely uninhabited with very little nightlife, no airports, infrastructure or restaurants. So what’s the allure to these islands? Privacy and the beauty of clear blue water and coral reefs on limestone plateaus.
Building homes on these remote islands can be a challenge since there’s no electricity or running water. Housing has to be built for the work crews. Everything has to be imported to the island. A typical project can take up to 2.5 years to complete.
What do you think, would you like your own remote private island?
