Nassau, Bahamas - In 1989, after leading the San Francisco 49ers to a Superbowl XXIII victory Joe Montana uttered the famous words "I'm going to Disney World". Now Joe Montana has his sights set on going to Rum Cay, Bahamas, which is widely considered as one of the most beautiful locations in the Caribbean.
Rum Cay is approximately 350 miles from Miami and is emerging as one of the world's foremost destinations for celebrities and athletes looking to get away from the masses. Rum Cay is a tranquil island roughly the size of Manhattan located on the continental shelf and is famous for Marlin fishing, Bonefishing, scuba diving and offers a world famous salt pond which attracts many for meditation and relaxation.
Joe Montana joins fellow Superbowl MVP Ray Lewis as a property owner acquiring oceanfront property in Paradise Is Mine's star studded development which reports to have as many celebrities in its midst as Beverly Hills, California.
Joe Montana is the latest in a long list of notables to descend on the island including Christopher Columbus who visited in 1492. Joe Montana acquired property in the Paradise Is Mine development adjacent to Hartford Cave which features indigenous drawings and carvings dating back over 1000 years.
For years The Bahamas have been the destination "de jour" for the rich and famous attracting purchasers like David Copperfield, Johnny Depp, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, John Travolta and Shakira. Recently Paradise Is Mine has become a second home destination of choice for star studded celebs looking for peace and quiet.
The Chinese Government recently announced a $2.6 billion dollar development initiative in The Bahamas, known as an international tax haven, which has steadily held or increased in value in spite of the largest global economic meltdown in history. Rum Cay, located 180 miles from Nassau, is positioned to be one of the chief beneficiaries of the impending Bahamas global property boom. Oceanfront lots in Paradise Is Mine's development range from $1.7 million dollars to $2.5 million dollars and the company offers ocean view lots starting at $550,000 dollars with sales prices increasing steadily over the last 2 years.
Yul Frenkhal, celebrity gossip guru, opines "Celebrities and those who like living near them want to live in a tropical paradise and can now buy while the Bahamas market continues this tremendous upswing. Whether its Joe Montana, Ray Lewis or a superstar swimsuit model from Vogue, Cosmopolitan or Sports Illustrated, Rum Cay and islands like it in The Bahamas are the place to be."
