The Bahamas' First Green Subdivision

Green Appeal

What could be more ecologically friendly than a gated community that is strategically located. Within a 5-mile radius there’s everything that you’ll need, including: Sir Lynden Pindling International Airport, Lyford Cay and Tambearly Schools - two of the Island’s better primary and high schools; Westminster College – a new addition; and Gambier School; and world famous Stuart Cove’s for scuba and snorkeling enthusiasts. A shopping centre minutes away includes City Markets supermarket, John S. George Home Centre, the famous House & Gardens furniture store and design centre, The Royal Bank of Canada and a Shell Service station. Minutes away are Lyford Cay Hospital , churches of Catholic, Anglican/Episcopalian denominations (as well as a non-denominational), a local police station solely servicing the area, exclusive Cave’s Village again with an array of exquisite shops and restaurants ~ all that will tantalize any taste. Historical sights like Heritage Park and Adelaide Village (one of our oldest settlements in New Providence) are only a bicycle ride or golf cart away; and maybe stop on your way back to Clifton Pier to fish, and drop in at the reputable organic farm for the freshest vegetables ever to complement your catch-of-the-day.
