A Home Fit for a Bond Villain: US$100 million trio of private islands

4 min read

Many viewers of the spy-action series will admit to wanting to be a bit like James Bond. The style, the swagger, the charm, the supreme self-confidence… all highly aspirational. But if we’re honest with ourselves, it’s the villains we’d probably prefer to live like.

Insidious plans for world domination aside, many Bond baddies have got lifestyles to die for. In several cases — specifically, those of Scaramanga, Blofeld, Dr. No and (No Time To Die spoiler alert) Lyutsifer Safin — they live on their own private islands. That’s a fantasy you too can make real, if you’ve got the vision. Oh, and a substantial sum in ready funds, of course.

A unique property comprising three stunning private islands is currently on the market via Bespoke Real Estate, with an asking price of US$100 million. Situated 65km off the coast from Panama City, Islas Cayonetas boasts a combined total of 30km of coastline, no less than 50 beaches, and such a rich array of wildlife that comparisons have been made to the Galapagos Islands.

Spanning around 1,800 acres of untouched tropical forest, the islands are home to hatching grounds for four species of turtles, nesting for hundreds of bird species (including a dozen subspecies not found on the mainland), and archaeological sites that provide fascinating insights into the lives of the indigenous people who occupied these islands in pre-Columbian times.

The three islands possess a combined 30km of coastline.

In order to preserve the islands’ natural beauty and abundant wildlife, 70% of the overall property must be maintained as a nature preserve, an initiative to be undertaken with the guidance and collaboration of Pangea World. This organisation was established with the stated goal “to transform tourism, conservation and science into a self-sustaining engine for economic development,” and is led by Dr. Hana Ayala, noted scientist, economist and diplomat.

The remaining third of the property can be developed as exclusive villas, an eco-friendly resort with a marina, or if the new owner prefers, one utterly incredible private compound. (Whether you choose to install an underground lair as well is entirely a matter of personal taste.)

The individual acquiring these gorgeous islands must be willing to preserve the vast majority of the natural habitat.

Of course, all that means evil mega-villains need not apply. The individual who eventually takes on the task of respectfully developing and maintaining these gorgeous islands will be someone keenly interested in the preservation of our world, rather than its destruction.
