French Island
Location: Argentina, South America
Price: US $700,000
Size: 2,255 acres(9.1 km2)
SpoilerFrench Island is a beautiful large private island located on the Rio Uruguay in the province of “Entre Rios”, Argentina. The property’s 2255 extensive acres in a populated and very pretty area make it a wonderful opportunity for tourism development or a ranching and agricultural venture. The island is available for purchase or for rent on a yearly basis.
Spectacular unspoiled nature surrounds you on French Island, with willow-treed woodlands, flat prairie, and a large 60-acre lagoon. You’ll find an abundance of wildlife including red deer, capybara, and otters, and the surrounding river teems with many varieties of fish and eels.

Located in a rich and fertile delta close to one of the world’s prime water resources, the Guaranì River basin, many types of ranching, farming and silviculture are possible. The Argentine government is actively seeking new investment and development in this region, and permitting is not expected to be difficult to obtain.

Some potential uses for the island are:

Tourism: Exceptional natural beauty, proximity (55 miles) to Buenos Aires and excellent fishing make French Island a perfect location for a hunting/fishing lodge or other tourism development. Capybara, red deer and other native species could be hunted for sport.

Ranching: Several types of cattle species such as the Bradfor would be perfectly adapted to the island’s natural flora and climate, and the unusually large size of the island provides ample pasture ground. High grasses, rushes, reeds, wetland tubers and other feed sources are readily available. Other possibilities include the raising of buffalo, marsh deer, and capybara.

Silviculture: The Argentine government offers tax credits and other subsidies to “green” industries that offset pollution, such as the growing of trees for paper and other uses. This production results in “Green Bonuses”, bonds which are traded and purchased by polluting industries to offset their carbon dioxide emissions. Species such as the Alamo tree have excellent, fast yields and would be particularly suitable.

There is currently one small and dilapidated house on the property, but it will need extensive renovations prior to use. There is not currently electricity on the island, which will need to be obtained from the nearest town of New Palmira, but cellular reception is excellent.

The island is available for both sale and long-term lease. The cost for a yearly lease is US $48,000.

Great Whale Cay:
Location: Bahamas, Caribbean
Size: 850 acres(3.44 km2)
SpoilerThe Island:
Great Whale Cay in the Bahamas is a (whale tail) shaped Island and is one of the largest and most scenic in the collection of islands known as The Berry Islands. It comprises 850 acres, a 4000’ paved runway, and some of the best beaches in the Bahamas. The island is a tropical paradise with a number of rare species of flora and fauna. It is also a Mecca for water sports, diving and sports fishing. The island is one of the closest to the mainland USA and is just one hundred and fifty miles east of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The island includes: 850 acre

surrounded by incredible beaches, deep water and coral reefs. The island offers fly-fishing, big game fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and many more activities. Unusually for the Bahamas, the island boasts substantial cliffs reaching heights of up to 60 ft above sea level. several historical buildings offer great development opportunities (The Great House, Lighthouse, Church, and Museum) The 4,000 foot airstrip puts Nassau within a 10-minute flight or Fort Lauderdale in approximately 50 minutes. Privately owned and developed by the heiress of the standard Oil fortune from the 1930’s through to 1975 – ‘Joe’ Carstairs.

Known as ‘The Fastest Women on Water’ she hosted the duke and duchess of Windsor on the island in 1940.

Development Plan:
Great Whale Cay has received outline planning consent from the Bahamian authorities for the development of the island into a luxury private island resort. The vision for the development has been 10 years in the making. A planned, methodical process via the buyout of previous investors and the purchase and acquisition of land parcels and individual lots has achieved the desired control over 100% of the island and ownership of 93% of the total land area.

Phase 1 of the development plan for Great Whale Cay has been approved by the Bahamian Government.. The development plan includes permission for:

-Commercial operatations- Airstrip -Marina -Hotel -Communal parks -Resort homes -Tennis courts -Restaurants -swimming pools - 155 individual ±1 acre home sites.

The development plan includes the following specific areas:

The Inn at Whale Cay – a traditional ‘village’ style development of approximately 50 Bahamian style cottages centered around The Great House.

Whale Cay Marina and Marina Village – new inland marina complex with private berths and villas.

Spa Island – a ‘Polynesian’ style development of luxury villas sitting above the tropical waters.

Church Point villas & homes – large homes situated around a possible 9-hole golf course with dramatic panoramic views to both the West and East.

The fact that the island has a private airstrip adds significant value to the island since it is highly unlikely that permission would be granted today for the creation of a new airstrip on a privately owned island. Whale Cay Group limited is a Bahamian registered corporation which owns approximately 93% of the Island.

There may also be the possibility to purchase a smaller ‘parcel’ of the island or a possible JV development opportunity with the current owners.

Kanacea Island
Location: Fiji, Oceania
Size: 3,085 acres(12.48 km2)
SpoilerSeven volcanic summits dot the island, with jungle-filled valleys set between them. A quiet world of azure water, footprint-free beaches with sand as fine as powder, framed between cliffs covered in overgrown forest; A set straight out of a Hollywood castaway movie.

This sprawling 3085 acre Fijian Freehold paradise was once a thriving copra plantation, but has gradually been reclaimed by the native guava and palm trees making way for the perfect opportunity for development or ultimate seclusion.

Vestiges of the copra operation survive in the form of an old plantation manor, several outbuildings and a weather beaten wharf that stretches out into the inviting waters of Northern Lau in the South Pacific.

Numerous pristine beaches fringe the island and lead out into the sparkling reef-rich waters making for excellent swimming, snorkelling and diving opportunities. Back on shore, the lush jungle conceals several fresh water springs, fragrant tropical flowers and a rare variety of crab that is prized locally for its exquisite coconut flavour.

Littered throughout the jungle, valleys and around the volcanic peaks is an abundant supply of scoria or cinder perfect for use in constructing roads or runways. Because of the islands immense size, there are several locations perfectly suited for the construction of airstrips, accommodation or larger developmental endeavours.

Please inquire for more information on this majestic kingdom-sized island.

A tropical plantation with a small island, in total adding up to 2300 acres.
