Only 48 miles away from Miami’s shores, but a world apart, Rockwell Island is a collection of luxury beachfront residences housed in a guarded, gated community on the north coast of Bimini in The Bahamas. Accessible in just 30 minutes by plane, or a couple of hours by sea (depending on your speed), paradise is more accessible than ever before.
On an island renowned for its fishing and yachting community, Rockwell builds its experience around the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and Bimini Bay. Each of its four unique dual-waterfront layouts feature a personal bayside dock in the front yard and private beachfront just steps from the backdoor. Residents can arrive via private vessel, dock their boat, and head straight for a sunset dip at the beach after a day out on the water. Sign us up!
The most affordable option, ‘St. Barts’, offers more than 4,000 square feet of total square feet and 4 spacious bedrooms, while the ‘Le Sereno Estate’ boasts more than 6,000 square feet for residents to enjoy and 6 bedrooms for entertaining. ‘Feng Shui’ and ‘Plantation’ bridge the size gap providing 5,050 and 4,588 square feet respectively, while ‘Feng Shui’ features an optional poolside bungalow for expanded comfort. Residences are available starting at $1.5million.
Infinite views are afforded by infinity pools that overlook the shoreline, and diamond-level concierge service ensures residents’ homes are spotless and pantries are fully stocked before arrival. Because who doesn’t love coming home to fresh sheets and a refrigerator filled with the day’s local catch, wagyu beef and premium caviar. Requests while on the island? Handled by 24-hour butler service prepared to meet any and all needs. Now that’s luxury.
While we wouldn’t blame residents if they decided never to leave the comfort of their beachfront enclaves, Bimini has plenty to offer its guests. Seasonal fishing here is among the best in the world, as the water is ripe with marine life at every depth. Adventurers can enjoy scuba-diving, snorkeling and jet-skiing, and those looking to relax can unwind on the island’s many beaches and serene sunset perches. Hungry for a bit of both? Start your day diving off the local Sapona shipwreck before drifting through the afternoon at Honeymoon Harbour. Sounds like a Saturday well spent.
Bimini boasts a variety of culinary options, from local mainstays like Stuart’s Conch Stand (don’t miss it!) and Edith’s Pizza, to fine dining experiences that rival any major city. Rockwell Island residents enjoy free access to the Resorts World casino and restaurants, as well as the brand new Beach Club.
It’s no wonder Rockwell Island is selling so fast. With only 12 beachfront lots remaining, it won’t be long before this exclusive community closes its gates.
