Rockwell Island Luxury Homes

Yes, you read the headline correctly…you can purchase an exclusive oceanfront mansion on the pristine white sands of North Bimini, Bahamas starting at $1.389M in the private community dubbed ‘Rockwell Island’ AND receive permanent residency in the Bahamas, gaining all of the rights and privileges that a Bahamian citizen has, except for the right to vote.

Nearly a year and a half ago, we posted an article about the Miami Luxury Homes Group touring the brand-new pre-construction, ultra-luxe community Rockwell Island, which is only a 15-20-minute seaplane ride from Miami, and we showed you a video of our private tour of the Genting Group Chairman, K.T. Lim’s, spectacular beachfront oasis on Rockwell Island. That video shows you the quality of homes and the tranquil island lifestyle that Rockwell Island offers its residents.

The project has been redesigned, and you can now purchase one of these 4-bedroom estates from $1.389M!

You can find more information about Rockwell island below including the different residence design options, transportation to the island, the overall luxury lifestyle and much more.

About Bimini, Bahamas

Bimini is located 48 nautical miles east of Miami, Florida. Bimini consists of 3 major islands, North, South and East Bimini. Visitors come to Bimini for its phenomenally clear turquoise waters and its abundant and varied marine life. Bimini has a rich and varied history, from being an important base for U.S rum-running operations during Prohibition to hosting Ernest Hemingway a few years later, who helped popularize Bimini as a place for legendary deep-sea fishing. “Bimini Road” was also discovered off the northwest coast of Bimini, consisting of a half mile long series of flat-lying slabs, some call the Lost Steps of Atlantis.

Things to do In Bimini
In addition to the rest and relaxation that you are certain to enjoy along the turquoise ocean waters, there is a lot of laid-back and fun entertainment in Bimini such as scuba diving, gaming, shopping at the local shops in Alicetown, golfing at the Rockwell Island Golf Course & Spa (if you own a house on Rockwell Island), boating, iconic fishing and best of all, enjoying the world-class spa, rooftop pool parties, concerts, Vegas-style casino and much more at the 4-star Hilton Resort World Bimini. Note: if you own a condo or a home on North Bimini Island, you have full access to the amenities at Hilton Resort World Bimini.

Transportation to Bimini
There are great transportation options to get to Bimini other than your own private yacht or plane! There are private charter flights from Miami and Fort Lauderdale, commercial airline flights from Fort Lauderdale and Nassau and seaplanes. Bimini is literally a 15-20 minute flight from Miami—far less time than driving to the Keys for a weekend getaway!

Bahamian Permanent Residency

As researched and explained by an advisor with the project, if a person purchases a property in the Bahamas for $500,000 or more, even if it is a personal residence, said person may apply for permanent residency in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. Once the person passes a background check and provides sufficient bank references and is granted permanent residency, the person will have all of the rights and privileges of a Bahamian citizen EXCEPT for the right to vote.
