Estate of the Day: Bahamas


In a secret hideaway, deep in the Bahamas, ancient Balinese craftsmanship and Polynesian design have merged to create the most unique work of art: Kayu Maya. Located on Staniel Cay in the heart of the world renowned Exuma Cays, Kayu Maya is an ideal paradise for those who dream of privacy in beautiful surroundings.  Kayu Maya’s name means “ancient wood,” a tribute to the architectural design and interior elements, which sit on a 40-foot high ridgeline overlooking pristine beaches. The resort-style residence is situated on a one-acre lot with waterfront on east and west exposures. The property is inspired by travel to the most luxurious beach resorts, which is apparent in the structure and décor. The main pavilion design of this 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home is a massive, open-beamed, ancient hardwood structure imported from Bali. Traditional craftsmanship combined with the highest level of engineering is integrated into the luxurious property. The interior design is a combination of Caribbean and Asian-inspired décor, highlighted by Moroccan luxuries. Kayu Maya truly brings several beaches of the world into one serene setting. Four bedrooms with multiple terraces offer views of Kayu Maya’s pool or beautiful water garden, which is seen from the master bathroom. An outdoor shower provides the ultimate relaxation after a day at the beach. A sunset patio exposes the idyllic open space from each side of Kayu Maya with a dividing hallway. Kayu Maya features two pools, a spa, large beach fire pit, deep water protected dockage for two boats, and it’s own runway behind the home. It is surrounded by tropical gardens, giving the property the ideal, carefree island essence.
