Completed in 2013, Farniente ushered in a new genre of grand living on Staniel Cay’s elite Ocean Ridge. Decidedly upscale, Farniente is the epitome of luxury island living. 

The home’s custom design boasts 5,000 square feet under air conditioning, with an additional 6,000 square feet of decking surrounding the pool, hot tub, outdoor living rooms, sun decks and beach access, while also connecting the indoor living areas, gourmet kitchen and private sleeping suites.

Located on Staniel Cay’s ocean ridge, Farniente sits majestically above its long, white-sand ocean beach. From one of the outdoor decks or poolside lounge chairs, take a short walk down Farniente’s steps to the sugar-soft beach below. Stroll the pristine beach looking for shells, splash in the ocean waves, lounge on the cushioned beach chairs and otherwise luxuriate in your sumptuous island retreat.
