About Bird Cay
Bird Cay is located in the Berry Islands, a chain of islands in the district of the Bahamas, covering about thirty square miles (78 km²) of the northwestern part of the Out Islands. Francis Francis, an heir to the Standard Oil fortune, developed Bird Cay Island in the 1940s as a private retreat. Francis, a member of the English Olympic fencing and track teams, was also a horseman in the army and one of the greatest amateur golfers of the 20th century. After marrying Patricia Leonard, Francis decided to buy his own island and create a personal paradise, building houses and structures from rock quarried from the island.
In its day the home’s dining room was host to many kings, politicians, and stars of the time. Francis included Belgium’s King Leopold III, the Duke of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, Rock Hudson, Sir Noel Coward, Greta Garbo and David Niven among his closest personal friends and guests. In later years, Francis became reclusive however, keeping his privacy and shunning publicity by discouraging journalists and photographers to land on the Cay. Website: http://www.birdcay.com
