Bahamas Real Estate | Private Owned Islands


We all know the incredible, laid back, role model actor –Johnny Depp. Did you know that after filming “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Depp wanted to get stranded on an island of his own in The Bahamas? It’s the truth ladies and gentleman. In 2004 Johnny Depp bought the beautiful, exclusive, 35-acre island— “Little Hall’s Pond Cay”— in the Exumas for $3.6 million dollars. The island provides Depp and his family with island fun, privacy, and paradise.


The admirable part of this extravagant purchase is that Depp made Little Hall’s Pond Cay completely eco-friendly. He employed environmentalist Mike Strizki to create an earth-friendly oasis fuelled by solar hydrogen technology. This means that The Bahamas’ powerful sunrays are created into electricity and used to run any necessary amenities. What an amazing investment, and not just amazing, but expensive. Depp spent roughly $500,000 to convert the entire house to solar power.

It is admirable to see a wealthy celebrity use his Monday to decrease his carbon footprint and make the earth more environmentally sound. Mario Carey Realty commends you Mr. Depp.
