The Ba­hamas has much to of­fer to­day’s buyer, be­lieves Ed­ward de Mal­let Mor­gan of Knight Frank. “The market has been strong through the past sea­son. Tax is be­com­ing more of an im­por­tant fac­tor for res­i­dents as it’s widely re­garded as the most ad­van­ta­geous ju­ris­dic­tion in the Caribbean. Prices have re­mained flat but there is good con­fi­dence that the Ba­hamas market will con­tinue to be a pop­u­lar one to come.” There is a wide range of both houses and apart­ments of­fer­ing dif­fer­ent life­styles from the very tra­di­tional gated com­mu­nity of Lyford Cay – home to Sean Con­nery – to the One & Only re­sort which, adds Ed­ward, “is a bit like Went­worth, if Went­worth was beach­front”. The Al­bany is the main su­pery­acht fo­cus with its ma­rina (which ac­com­mo­dates yachts of up to 91 me­tres), Tiger Woods-de­signed golf course, and record­ing stu­dio on site.
