Features Description

Built by Bill and Babe Paley in the early 1960’s as a family retreat, this home was one of the first estates to be completed in the exclusive Lyford Cay enclave near Nassau, Bahamas. A private, gated community, Lyford Cay is an exclusive club with its own security service that caters to a diverse cross-section of prominent social and business leaders from around the world. This fully staffed oceanfront villa has hosted the Paley family and their guests over the past four decades. Designed to meet the exacting specifications and needs of its renowned owners, the house is decorated and filled with European and Asian furniture, art and antiquities. The estate is truly a one-of-a-kind environment. The estate has been meticulously maintained and restored to its original period style.Designed as a luxury tropical retreat by the Paleys, the inner garden pool courtyard features the loggia - a covered outdoor seating area with bamboo and Polynesian furnishings. Through a wall of elegant French doors, the grand living room opens to tropical breezes and is filled with art collected by the Paleys throughout their world travels. It is the perfect setting for both formal dinners and casual cocktail parties. Another favorite gathering spot is the covered veranda overlooking the tranquil waters of the Caribbean. Four spacious master bedroom suites, each decorated in a unique architectural style, featuring queen-sized beds, writing desks and ample closet space, are augmented by two smaller single sleeping rooms, each with its own private bath.A highlight of your stay will be the enjoyment of a host of exquisite menu selections. Every meal is prepared on-site by the executive chef, and can be served to you and your group in a variety of formal or informal settings. With a love of food and fine cuisine, the Paleys created many specialty dishes for the elegant parties and social gatherings they hosted here. These specialties continue to be part of the culinary tradition at the estate.For decades, royalty, diplomats, and international statesmen have found Lyford Cay to be a private, secure and safe haven.
