Waterfront Property for Sale on a Private Peninsula in the Abaco Islands
Searching for waterfront homes for sale in The Bahamas offering privacy and direct water access?
Offering the feel of a private island, this home on Tilloo Cay in the Abaco Islands of The Bahamas creates the atmosphere of a private island but without the price tag and is a boater’s dream come true.
The property is located on Burke Point, a well elevated 32,000 square foot private peninsula surrounded by over 600 feet of pristine waterfront shoreline on 3 sides offering endless water views and perfect privacy.
The peninsula measures roughly 325 feet in length from the base to the tip of the peninsula and has an average beam of 100 plus feet.

The docks can easily accommodate 4 or more vessels at a time and the only limit is the controlling draft of 5 feet to the dock slips.
The grounds have been lovingly tamed and landscaped with casual walkways and stairs made from the brick ruins at Wilson City or the flat limestone rocks found on the property.
Hardy salt tolerant and native plants adorn the landscape in a thoughtful way to blend into the natural habitat.
The marine life to be seen from this spectacular outpost is simply unparalleled.
Tilloo Cay is a nature lovers paradise miles away from ordinary but also an easy commute to the wonderful amenities of Hope Town, Elbow Cay and Marsh Harbour.
A few miles away the Thirsty Cuda patrols and offers lunch and drink at the Tahiti Sandbar, a popular spot for afternoon shenanigans.
The property is an easy 30 minute boat ride to Marsh Harbour township for all your essential shopping needs and the international airport.
It is also an easy boat ride over sheltered waters to Elbow Cay and Hope Town for excellent fine dining and entertainment.
Move In Ready Cottage
The property suffered some damage as a result of the passage of Hurricane Dorian, September 2019, however the photos are dated 2022 and show the current condition of the property.
Right now there is a move in ready 1 bedroom cottage with municipal electricity and back up power.
You can live in the cottage while the main home is being rebuilt.
The cozy and cute cottage measures 26 x 18 feet and contains 2 rooms plus the full bathroom.
This guest cottage has an awesome waterfront covered porch which is literally hanging over the waters edge with one of the docks right in front.
The cottage is tested and faired the storm with practically no damage at all, a true testament to the quality of the craftsmanship.
Main House – Ready to Be Rebuilt
The 900 square foot main house on this property suffered serious damage.
The floor and foundations remain in place and are ready to have the home rebuilt to the new owners taste and specifications.
Despite being very well built, the main house’s 8′ wide wrap-around porches with the integral roof system proved to be a weak link in the 200+ mph winds.
Improvements on the property include a wonderful workshop full of tools in good working order.
The tools will stay with the property.
The wood workshop is right off the main dock and always has a cool breeze blowing and a view over the perfectly sheltered anchorage.
There is a small generator shed which houses the aux power and manual transfer switch.
Lastly there is a 9 x 13 foot wood storage shed.
Water supply is via rain catchment and RO plant and the 6,000 gallons of water storage in 5 separate ABS plastic tanks which are all connected to work in harmony with 2 pressure pumps.
It is a simple but elegant water system that supplies excellent potable water to all parts of the property.
