Developed in the 1930s as a private kingdom island paradise by Wallace Groves, an early pioneer in the Bahamas, the ninety three acre Little Whale Cay hosts its guests in three secluded sea-view houses: Little Whale, Peacock, and Flamingo. There are multiple properties on the estate; including... LITTLE WHALE With dashes of thirties' Cuban style, Little Whale House centres on an airy, open-plan living salon which has a pitched pine roof, bay windows, bar and dining area and leads to a kitchen and an ensuite double bedroom.
Decor is light and relaxed, with wooden floors, pickled pine furnishings, cool white fabrics and comfy sofas, characterised by some lovely period details: original tiles, mosaics, antique lamps and bathroom fittings; true in spirit, easy as finding conch shells on the shore. A courtyard garden with covered BBQ and dining leads to a parasol-shaded breakfast patio, where the sea glints through the palms and the coral stone stairway curves down to your private white sand beach and oceanfront bar.
Little Whale Cay even has its own 'downtown' - an enclave of pretty pastel house for the island's twelve staff, with a village store, harbour, and small church of native coral stone called 'Stella Maris', where the Cay's owners married, now available for guests' weddings.
