The island of Great Abaco, one of fastest growing and most exclusive destinations in The Bahamas, will soon be home to the luxury residential community Serenity Point, where a limited number of home sites have just been introduced. The exclusive 40-acre gated community will be distinguished by five miles of unbroken, turquoise coastline on the breathtaking Schooner Bay Beach. Serenity Point will include 24 beachfront and hilltop home sites, each with varying elevation that feature stunning island views.
Spearheaded by master international real estate developer, Alexis Nihon II, president of Anco Lands LTD, the private community will be designed to incorporate the natural beauty of its surroundings while following strict standards of sustainability and environmental preservation. Established in 1995 Anco Lands is a private real estate development company located in Nassau, Bahamas with an extensive land portfolio on the Bahamian island of Great Abaco. As one of the largest landholding companies operating in the Bahamas, the company employs a management philosophy based on stable property appreciation through sustainable development. With this end in mind, the company aims to develop communities that are amenity-rich, respect the landscape, and establish unique identities.
The Abacos are a group of islands in the Northeast Bahamas and are comprised of two main islands called Great Abaco and Little Abaco, together with hundreds of primarily unpopulated cays. The Island of Great Abaco is the third largest island in The Bahamas and is home to the charming city of Marsh Harbour. This Island also hosts the stunning Schooner Bay Beach, where Serenity Point’s residences will be located. With their spectacular waters, breathtaking beaches, and excellent weather conditions year round, which average 75 degrees F, The Abacos are known as the “sailing capital of the world” and have become a preferred location for those seeking sea, sun and sand. These enchanting islands, with colorful New England-style seafaring village, are home to luxury homes, inns and marinas that co-exist alongside traditional settlements, and two national parks that protect thousands of acres of shallow reefs, mangroves and forest.
Centered at the heart of Schooner Beach Bay, Serenity Point will offer its residents exclusive facilities, including a full-service private beach club with an infinity pool overlooking the majestic emerald-blue ocean, tennis courts with dressing rooms on premise and an eco-conscious solar power golf cart for each home site. Owners will also enjoy personalized amenities with Serenity Point’s luxe concierge services including personal chefs, private yacht rentals, fishing charters, diving and island expeditions. Emphasizing the importance of eco-conservation, the community will feature low-maintenance landscaping, rainwater holding tanks and renewable energy sources.

Homeowners may also select their own team for home building according to the community’s building guidelines.
