TROPIC OCEAN AIRWAYS WHERE CARIBBEAN LUXURY TAKES FLIGHT


T

ropic Ocean Airways is a large, standardized airline that just happens to land in the water. Founded in 2009 by Rob Ceravolo, Tropic Ocean Airways is committed to providing first-class private charter and scheduled service flights throughout Florida, The Bahamas and beyond. They love what they do, and they should, just as much as you will love flying with them. In fact, once you fly to the Bahamas and the Caribbean with Tropic Ocean, which is not remotely as expensive as you might think, you’ll probably never travel to paradise another way. Clean, the highest safety rating in the industry, no lines, pre-boarded and passport stamped before you board their impeccable aircrafts. Behind what is the genius of Tropic Ocean Airways is an entrepreneur with a dream and the audacity to say what if, and to bring that dream to life. CEO Rob Ceravolo, a University of Florida alumni, was a TOPGUN Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, serving as an active duty and reserve member, becoming an air combat instructor, and earning the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Ceravolo’s leadership and vision, coupled with Nick Veltre’s (COO) expertise in seaplane operations, led to the development of an awardwinning seaplane company offering unmatched professionalism, dedication to safety, and guest satisfaction. Tropic Ocean Airways is the largest amphibious airline with a fleet of 13 aircrafts, and as travel to the Caribbean has now opened back up, it’s Ceravolo’s foresight, strategic maneuvering, and proactive approach that will lead to a new era, and perhaps the magical tipping point for this amazing company that was once simply a dream.






Elevated: The experience of travel for people is going to be that much more valuable as people have had the opportunity, forced as it was, to really reflect on aspects of their lives and thus both reevaluate and prioritize. You take something away and people realize how valuable it is and perhaps how it might have been taken for granted or not valued as much as it should have been. Just as with home and design and people being forced to realize there is so much more than can do with their homes by having been forced to have been in them for an extended period of time, same with travel in that now having not had it, people are going to have a heightened, and real, sense of demand in general and at an accelerated pace, and further when it comes to someone such as yourself, having one of the most powerful, exclusive, unique experiences on the planet, but further being in the Caribbean, I would think it’s an exciting time?! Rob Ceravolo: You hit it on the head. The majority of us value experience. To design life around the idea that life is an experience and it’s something to be lived essentially. This crisis has helped people re-evaluate what they really value in life.




Life is the experience. So how do you make each and every moment of life the experience you want it to be? That includes of course when deciding to make that trip down to the Caribbean, it’s doing it with you. People must also think initially that traveling with Tropic Ocean is an incredibly high ticket such as most private aviation travel, while with you it’s not. It’s a good point. We’re not the low-cost alternative by any means. That being said, we’re not a private jet. I equate it to a price comparison to a Delta Comfort Plus or Delta Business Class experience. It runs anywhere for a $250 ticket where you’re buying a seat to a $15,000 round trip to fly you to your mega-yacht and everything in between. It’s not a $40,000 private jet flight by any means. Especially when you think about the homeowners in the islands. The time alone that you save is a huge value. If you own a home on Kamalame Key, you board one of our flights and we pre clear you, and an hour later the plane is landing in front of your house! While you’re sitting at the seaplane base in Florida, we stamp your passport and say “Welcome to the Bahamas!” You’re sitting in a lounge in Miami and you’re already cleared into the Bahamas.

OIL NUT BAY A ONE-OF-A-KIND OASIS WRITTEN BY SHAYLENE TODD




S

olo is the new safe, and space has never been a more valued commodity. With borders closed globally, a newfound collective fear of commercial flights and a mandate to isolate ourselves from the masses, planning your next Caribbean getaway has rarely proved more daunting. Enter Oil Nut Bay: a luxury development in the British Virgin Islands that is ideally suited to this “new normal” and to the heightened needs of the luxury traveler. Envision an idyllic haven for your family to escape to that offers safety and splendor in the midst of this madness. Spanning 400 acres on the north-eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, nestled majestically where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, this one-ofa-kind retreat was built to cater to the world’s ultra-wealthy. With a self-directed mandate to “build in harmony with nature”, Oil Nut Bay developer, David V. Johnson, considers himself God’s caretaker of this incredible piece of land. He has extended an open invitation to like-minded individuals who are looking for a second residence in a sensational destination or a luxurious holiday in a place that prides itself on elegance, seclusion and privacy. With diverse real estate and rental offerings in eight distinct neighborhoods, this low-density utopia offers natural sequestration with expansive outdoor living space around each of its 30 extraordinary built homes. The nearby island of Tortola enables private air transport right to the arrival dock where you will be whisked by boat to your home away from home. Whether you’ve opted to stay on the island’s ‘wild side’, where ocean and mountains meet, or on the white sandy beach bordering the turquoise bay, your villa of choice is sure to resonate as your own opulent oasis.




Your villa selection will offer low touch, high tech options for opening doors, controlling lights and, in some cases, even managing the flow of your own elaborate waterfall. If the idea of communal pools seems daunting, almost all rental options include private ways of taking a dip and sunbathing in solitary serenity. While each of the three delectable on-property restaurants has been conceptualized to complement their individual venues and views, Oil Nut Bay now offers uniquely bespoke ways to feast in savory seclusion. Picture a luxury picnic waiting for you on a lookout over the bluffs, after a refreshing hike through the island’s rocky, fauna-filled terrain. You’ll soak in the sun and every shade of blue as you feast on your culturally infused culinary delights. Imagine hosting a decadent dinner party in your own lavish living space, carefully curated to your tastes by one of the island’s private chefs. If you opt to order in, ‘ONB Eats’ will deliver restaurant fare via electric golf cart to your villa door.






The resort core boasts an array of world-class amenities that are both unparalleled and unrivaled, from the kid’s play center, the Nut House, to a state of the art fitness facility. In response to a call for solo-centric activities, glassbottom kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and sail-ready hobie cats line the shore awaiting your next adventure. Picture a day spent learning to kite-surf off the Marina Village dock, or mountain biking on one of their trails or doing sunrise yoga on the beach, followed by an invilla massage serenaded by the sounds of the ocean. Having mastered the island-hopping experience by private charter boat, the local fishing experience and the romantic sunset cruise, they’ll orchestrate your immersion into nature, away from the throngs and banded with your flock. Once you’ve visited the horses at their rescue barn and snorkelling with the resident turtles in their sanctuary, a visit to their Nature Center is in order. This newly conceptualized building is an ode to its surroundings and a platform for conservation education with a mission of putting the heart back in luxury. Guests are offered an opportunity to book a turtle tagging expedition in the protected bay that borders the beach, providing a meaningful venture into ‘giving back’ while on holiday. In partnership with the Henry Ford Clinic, Oil Nut Bay offers 24 hour on-call doctor services in their fully equipped on-site clinic. Robust infrastructure simplifies long term stays with the ability to stream, work and zoom with those not as fortunate as you to be operating from paradise. Without question, these are unprecedented times and with that there has been movement of wealth into the luxury real estate market and demand for private villa rentals. People are feeling an urgency to find a place they can return to year over year, that they can use as a safe harbor and sheltered respite. And there’s nowhere better to escape to than the tranquility of a Caribbean island designed to indulge you in mother nature’s bounty and cater to your desire for seclusion with tailored refinement.

Jamie Agoglia: First and foremost, congratulations on the current issue of SI (Sports Illustrated)! Kate Bock: Thank you, very exciting! Really quickly on that, I wanted to pay you a huge compliment, not that you need me to tell you this, while you have a magnificent way how you present both yourself and what you’re involved in, on a professional and personal level. You do it in a very unparalleled way, and your dog Vestry is one of the most beautiful animals I have ever seen! Thank you, every time Kevin (Love) and I are walking around with her we get stopped at least three, four times, people are like “What is this dog?! She’s so pretty!” And she is! She’s such a sweet girl and such a pretty girl. She’s a good little model and a good poser. Right now as we’re speaking her body is smooshed into my body, they’re very attached and very affectionate. She travels all over with me, she went paddle boarding with me this morning. Love Kate Inc., that is your lifestyle line, when do you plan on potentially launching, and is that a personal passion that you’ve been thinking about for quite some time? I’m hoping 2021. What I’m realizing more and more, through social media and through my friends, is that I’ve cultivated a way to do really healthy snacks and meals, tips and tricks, make special moments, beautiful ways to work out such as in candle light outside, and people started to just call it “Kate Lifestyle,” and we’re trying to figure out how to share that in the most diestable way. Kate, you’ve had, are having, such an amazing career, you’re so good at what you do. What are a few “aha” moments that you reflect back on as moments, decisions, that changed the trajectory of your career and brought you to this point? Interesting question! I moved from Vancouver Canada, I was 18, I had finished high school, and all my friends were going to college and moving away to different spots to go to school. At that time I decided to follow through with the opportunity to go to Paris and sign with an agency. Which, at the time (laughing), I was so jealous of my friends going off to college, to have that dorm room experience, that college time to look back on. I went to Paris by myself, I knew nobody, and got on the plane and hoped for the best, and here we are a few years later! I’m so happy with my career, the people I’ve met, the places I’ve traveled, and trusting that moving to a foreign country across the world I’d never been to was going to work out well, was a big moment for me!

KATE BOCK LIFESTYLE ENVISIONED



Do you ever look back and think “what if I hadn’t done that?!” I feel like I always knew what I wanted, and envisioned these things in my head, and pictured myself being all over the world, or pictured myself in certain situations, and it all came to be. I’ve had a very strong eye for envisioning my future, and when something became an opportunity, it just seemed like a natural thing to follow through with. I also went to French immersion school so moving to Paris was a little less daunting to me because I could speak the language. I love that! So then what was your next significant, or even more significant “aha” moment? After Paris I lived in London, Milan, Tokyo, and then back to Paris, I was there multiple years, and then finally, I had never been to New York, and when I moved to New York that was a huge moment, it’s been my home now for 10+ years, I love New York City, and I do feel like a “New Yorker.” I think I’ve made it after 10 years, I’m officially a “New Yorker” now! That’s my home and that’s the love of my life citywise. And when I moved to New York I had some really cool jobs and career turning situations, like being cast for Victoria Secret and being cast for Sports Illustrated, doing L’Oreal commercials and got to live out so many of the dreams that I had envisioned by moving to New York.


I love how you touched upon how you’ve always had a strong sense of being able to envision and see where you’re going, or want to go, or wanting to become, and so what is that right now? I’m wanting to put together a book of favorite cooking tips, healthy eating tips, lifestyle, my favorite workouts, all of those tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way and that I love. Making healthy food at home. Making your home feel really welcoming. How to host and friends over and have quick, easy ways to prepare. How different workouts can help you throughout the day. Different travel tricks. I’ve learned so much throughout the years, I just want to put it all together and be able to share that. It’s something that I’m really passionate about, that I love, and I feel like I get asked the questions all the time, so I want to be able to have a book that I can share. And what a valuable time to be doing that in our current society, never have people been more focused on the home and how much they want to enhance their home lifestyle. Exactly, there are some silver linings. Obviously COVID is horrible, while there are some linings, and it’s the perfect time to focus on the home life, and eating healthy, and being active, and a focus on both your physical health and your mental health.

KATE HUDSON KING ST. VODKA



A

ctress and entrepreneur Kate Hudson is making her mark in the world of ultra-premium spirits with her newest endeavor, King St. Vodka. Inspired by good times with friends spent over Dirty Vodka Martinis, Kate couldn’t find a vodka that was just right for her palate, or one that was founded by a woman, so she made one herself. “I have always found the spirits industry fascinating, and I love Dirty Vodka Martinis. The creative side of me thought it would be a fun challenge to develop a vodka for my palate, and in a beautiful package that I would love to have on my bar and share with friends. The businessperson in me is now looking forward to the challenge of building a brand in an entirely new industry,” says Hudson. “After a particularly long day, I decided to host an impromptu cocktail party with my closest friends. As I prepared to whip up a batch of dirty vodka martinis I surveyed my bar, but I wasn’t 100 percent happy with my options. Then I wondered, ‘Are any of these vodkas founded by women?’ I did some research, they weren’t. So, I decided to make my own just the way I like it!”




Crafted in Santa Barbara, King St. Vodka was founded in 2019 by Kate and her partner David Kanbar, CoCreator of Skinnygirl. Created under the watchful eye of Master Distiller, Ian Cutler, King St. Vodka uses GMOfree corn and alkaline water, producing a final yield that is gluten free with a hint of sweet vanilla flavor. Distilled seven times and then filtered, King St. Vodka is extraordinarily pure. Made from the best ingredients, every sip is clean, smooth, and created to be enjoyed with good company. Kate takes pride in the creation process, and attributes the high standard of the final product to taking their time in ensuring quality above all. “I find that a lot of times in business, people rush something to get ahead,” Kate says. “And they end up failing because the quality isn’t there. As David says, the quality has to speak for itself.”





TURKS AND CAICOS PARADISE


Photography by Brilliant Studios



M

agnificent turquoise waters and powdery white sand beaches that stretch out for miles are synonymous with the over forty islands and cays that make up the ‘Beautiful by Nature’ Turks and Caicos Islands. Still considered a hidden gem and the world’s best kept secret, the Turks and Caicos Islands with its 360 days of sunshine and perfectly warm weather and waters is the ideal island getaway. This luxurious destination’s slogan ‘Beautiful by Nature’ speaks for itself. The islands beaches, mangroves and reefs are unspoiled. With crystal clear waters and breathtakingly beautiful rich ecosystems, visitors can get in tune with nature when visiting the islands. Unique to the destination is Little Water Cay, affectionately named Iguana Island, where the native endangered rock iguana is being protected and visitors can mingle with the friendly creatures. This destination is perfect for the avid animal enthusiast or even someone who seeks peace, serenity and maybe even a little beach side yoga. The Turks and Caicos is not only famous for the award-winning beaches and pristine environment, but it is also rich in history and culture with many attractions that make it suitable for the whole family. One can travel back in time by visiting the Turks and Caicos national museum or have fun singing and dancing in the Junkanoo Museum. There are also many treasured national trust sites opened to visitors such as Wade’s Green Plantation which is located in the settlement of Kew in North Caicos and regarded as one of the best surviving examples of a Loyalist plantation left in the Caribbean. There is also the mysterious Conch Bar Caves to be explored which is the largest cave system in the Turks and Caicos. Here visitors are guided through the chambers and learn many stories of the island’s Lucayan Indian past.






Unique to Turks and Caicos is the culinary scene. It is an emerging Caribbean Foodie Paradise! There are many world-class 5-star dining opportunities that boast a fusion cuisine of local and international dishes. As well as many exciting authentic local dining experiences, many offer seaside opportunities to watch them prepare conch straight from the sea to your table for what is a truly fun-filled interactive dining experience. Conch is a recommended local and visitor favourite, being prepared deep fried, as fritters, with rice and much more. Locally caught fish and lobster are also praised and cooked in multiple ways. If you’re looking for an opportunity to wine and dine with locals and have a fun filled night, then visit the weekly Island Fish Fry hosted by the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board. This event typically occurs every Thursday from 5:30pm to 9:30pm and hosts many local food, drink, and craft vendors. At the venue a live local band plays both local “rake n scrape” music and crowd favorite covers. The evening ends with rythmic Junkanoo that everyone can participate in and enjoy. All this takes place at the scenic Grace bay Beach which makes it a truly unforgettable experience. Additionally, what’s truly fun about visiting the islands is that not only are you on the world’s best beaches, but almost every imaginable watersport is at your fingertips. You can have fun gliding above the water’s surface parasailing, kiteboarding, kayaking, paddling boarding and much more. While snorkeling, freediving and scuba diving offer opportunities to swim amongst beautiful tropical fish and explore some of the healthiest and pristine reefs in the world. Last but not least is the beachside horseback rides, where majestic horses take you on rides across miles of white sand beaches and through calm turquoise waters.








OCEAN FRONTIERS TCI A DIFFERENT CLASS OF CHARTER IN TURKS & CAICOS


O

cean Frontiers is a small, owner operated, private boat charter company that specializes in tailor-made custom day-charters around the Turks and Caicos Islands. Every trip is planned with your wishes in mind to guarantee the best possible experience with Ocean Frontiers. You decide how relaxed, romantic or adventurous you want your trip to be. Their gorgeous Axopar boat, M/V Bonita, is truly in a class of its own. With a modern, elegant, European styling and a purposefully designed day-charter deck-layout, M/V Bonita offers all the features and amenities one could ask forplus, a fast, quiet and exceptionally smooth ride. Enjoy the most beautiful places in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Countless Islands and Cays await to be explored. The boat has three well defined lounging areas. So, whether sunbathing on the bow, relaxing amidships in the shade or socializing in the back by the swim platform, on M/V Bonita there is always a perfect spot to enjoy the stunning views.










Behind the incredible experience is Ernesto, the captain, instructor, and coowner of Ocean Frontiers. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Ernesto developed a love for the sea as a small child when his parents used to take him to the beach on weekends. At the young age of 14, he got certified as an Open Water Scuba Diver which opened a whole new world for him to explore, and so cemented what would become his future career choice.

SHWAYZE MUSIC OF MALIBU



T

he famed rapper dubbed “The King of Summer” Shwayze recently debuted his newest album, “Surf Trap,” released at the end of July 2020, with new singles off the album continuing to drop every few weeks.

Raised on the beaches of Southern California, Aaron Smith is a rapper, actor, musician, and father, became known to the world simply as Shwayze following a massive music breakout in 2008. His effortless, impeccable style has kept him on the radar of Elevated Luxury Lifestyle, marking him as our 2020 Fall Cover Star. His latest new album marks a new chapter of a storied career for Shwayze. The “Buzzin” rapper skyrocketed to fame in 2008 with this single, which has garnered almost 16 million views, and his MTV show, both dubbed Buzzin.’ After much time in the studio, and quality time as a father, the chart topping rapper is excited for the world to check out his latest music from his “Surf Trap” album, with standout singles including “Hate Me” and “Stuck” w/ Cisco Adler. The Malibu native released his debut album Buzzin’ that summer (2008) with singer-producer Cisco Adler. The duo hit the road immediately on the Vans Warped Tour. Shwayze has since gone on to work with an array of producers and release several independent albums such as Shwayze Summer on his self-funded Feel Good Entertainment Music label. He continues reinventing his sound while staying true to the influences that brought him where he is today. The past decade has boasted an impressive resume including a top 10 album, Billboard chart topping singles including ‘Buzzin’ and ‘Corona & Lime,’ a rock-doc reality show on MTV, and a number of roles in feature films and major network television- all while living on the road much of the year touring the world.




Shwayze continues to perform around the world and each year he finds new territories and fanbases to connect with. Last year he rolled out the highly anticipated full length EP “Beach Boy’, and his latest album “Surf Trap” that dropped this July is marking a new chapter of a storied career. What was your influence for the sound of the album? I wanted to stay true to my sound while sonically taking it to the next level. I worked with one of my favorite producers, Paul Couture, and we finished the album while on lockdown. I am extremely proud of this project and think it’s one of my best to date What was your inspiration for the album? I am a Malibu boy at heart, so my music is a product of my environment. Beach, Summer and ‘Feel Good’ music. Good Vibes Only! Did you collaborate with any other artists or musicians on the album? I worked with Cisco Adler, the Reggae band Hirie, and Fxckyeah (Formally Sky Blu from LMFAO) on the album tracks. I also have a new track out with the Common Kings called ‘California Day’ available on Spotify and Apple Music. Who are your musical inspirations? Red Hot Chili Peppers, NERD, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, OutKast, The Police, 2Pac, Lenny Kravitz to name a few. What does Malibu life currently mean to you? Malibu life is more special than ever right now. I grew up here, but like most places you grow up, you tend to spend all your time trying to get away. I moved to Hollywood, then Austin, Texas and most recently to New York City, all while staying on the road playing shows year round. COVID has forced me to come back home and spend time with my family, and it’s been a beautiful reminder of how much I love this town, and how it’s influenced my lifestyle and music. What message do you want your music to provide? All good vibes. I’ve been coined the ‘King of the Summer’ by my listeners so it’s important to me to provide that escape from reality for them. No matter what season or what city you’re in when you pop on my music you’re right where you want to be. What is a luxurious lifestyle to you? I’m a simple man. Give me my health, my family, a few good friends, and a Bluetooth speaker...that’s all the luxury I need. Find your own definition of luxury, because if you use someone else’s definition you’ll never be satisfied with what you have. Music is a great way to know you’re not alone in the way you think or feel. Find the artist, genre, or song you connect with and sing, dance, play your heart out.

AKILLIS TATTOO



A

killis creates tattoos-as-jewelry, the newest collection by jeweler and designer Caroline Gaspard. With Tattoo, Akillis continues its exploration of ethno-rock, enriching the unique, unexpected, and innovative field of jewelry-asink in homage to the tattoo artistry of the Maori. Maori warriors defined themselves by acts of bravery, which translated into social status. Tattoos, a traditional symbol of prestige, bore witness to their endeavors, forming a record of important events. Treating the body as a canvas and conceived of as a second skin, the new collection from Caroline Gaspard, infused with the spirit of the tribal warrior and marries oceanic lines with Akillis’s signature style. Offered in black and white, this line plays with a palette as bold as it is pure, as masculine as it is feminine.




The Tattoo collection, which offers everything from pieces for everyday wear to spectacular high jewelry, is designed for anyone and everyone who wants their jewels to dazzle in the morning, the evening, and back again. Appreciating the authentic Maori style, curved and pointed angles highlight the lines and muscles of the body. The jeweler infuses her own graphic rock style into this timeless aesthetic. The artistic director was captivated by the commendable courage and strength that inspired the inkings, just as she was inspired by the heroism and mindset of the legendary Greek, Achilles, who has lent his name to the Akillis brand for over 10 years. Caroline adds a new seductive dimension to the established Akillis stylebook of python scales and steel triangles. She forces contrast into conversation, clashing and melding the swells, slits, soft curves and keen points of waves, harpoons, spirals, and arrows. The triangle, for example, an Akillis calling-card, symbolizes tenacity among Oceanic people and crops up in black diamond and hollowed-out shark teeth motifs. Conceived from countless sketches, born of an arrangement of lines and figures where every element depends on the one before and after it, the never-before-seen geometric calligraphy stands out on the skin.

THE BAHAMAS PEACE, PRIVACY, & A LUXURIOUS LIFESTYLE



T

urquoise waters washing over sparkling sea glass and conch shells nestled on pink sand. Coconut palms swaying in a choreographed ballet to the tune of a balmy breeze. Meticulously maintained white sand beaches so soft you’d swear you were walking on baby powder. These are moments that define life in The Bahamas. Add to this list a tax-neutral financial environment and the country’s ease-of-access, and it’s not hard to see why The Bahamas has been attracting high-net-worth individuals to its shores for many generations. “It’s not simply the crystal-clear water and year-round sun that is attractive to the world’s elite,” said George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty in Nassau. “It’s the fact that luxury homes and private islands in The Bahamas offer seclusion and security combined with the ability to stay closely connected to the world. Fort Lauderdale is only a 30-minute flight away.” According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, private air travel accounts for nearly 60 percent of the estimated 90,000 flights that fill the skies daily. By a large margin, the islands of The Bahamas top the list of destinations in the Caribbean, particularly for travelers based in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, privatefly.com says that of the top-five most frequent private jet routes, two are between Nassau and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Nassau and New York (Teterboro).






“It boils down to economy of time,” said Damianos. “These are individuals who don’t have time to waste standing in long security lines or waiting on commercial flight delays.” In the shadow of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the looming possibility of future quarantines, ease-of-access is becoming increasingly more desirable to the super wealthy, along with locations that are low-density and offer quarantine-friendly amenities such as private beaches, and plenty of space to roam outdoors during periods of lockdown. “We’ve seen an uptick in private island inquiries in the past couple of months,” Damianos said. “Particularly for islands in the Exuma Cays. The Exumas are one among the most spectacular places in the world with crystalclear water, hundreds of deserted beaches and islands and spectacular diving and fishing.” Damianos, who has 45 years of experience selling luxury waterfront real estate and private islands in The Bahamas, said that properties such as the 700-acre Blue Island are particularly appealing to the ultra-wealthy because they also offer private air strips.




“Savvy investors don’t mind paying a premium if it means purchasing a property that is not going to be burdensome to own,” said Damianos. “Affluent buyers want a home that is easy to take care of, easy to maintain and easy to access on a moment’s notice. They also prioritize locations that offer unique lifestyle options, absolute privacy and an array of first-class amenities, which more and more is becoming a healthy, outdoor lifestyle. Additionally, our savvy investors are oftentimes interested in establishing themselves in The Bahamas for the purpose of pursuing Economic Permanent Residency (EPR).” Economic Permanent Residency grants foreigners virtually the same rights as a native-born citizen, apart from voting rights. In The Bahamas, anyone who purchases a home valued in excess of $750,000 are eligible to apply for this status. As the leading real estate company in the country, the Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty team specializes in assisting international clients in the residency process. “As an English-speaking country with an economy pegged to the U.S. dollar, and an ever-growing number of properties with private airstrips, The Bahamas is a relatively seamless transition for investors,” said Damianos. “The country’s proximity to the U.S. also provides additional peace of mind.”

SONOMA FORGE LIKE NOTHING ELSE IN THE SHOWROOM



T

he Waterbridge Collection from Sonoma Forge has iconic body lines which elevate humble plumbing parts to designer status, artfully recalling the traditions of the Napa and Sonoma Valley wine country. The exposed showers from that collection complement the faucets perfectly, and it’s no accident that they are often installed outdoors, as the style conveys an aesthetic that could be derived from equipment found in the vineyards. The standard finishes are all delicious: Rustic Copper, Rustic Nickel, OilRubbed bronze, Satin Nickel and Matte Black. Other options for spouts and handles make the line adaptive to the designer, and the WaterBridge Collection will easily enhance decor across a spectrum from Country Cottage to Industrial Chic.




The WherEver Collection is a widespread adaptation of WaterBridge featuring an even greater variety of spouts and handles to fit‌ wherever! The artisans of Sonoma Forge craft inspired designs that celebrate the metal in a stark departure from the delicate chrome still so prevalent. Here you find a comprehensive suite of distinctive faucets, showers and coordinated bath accessories unlike anything else in the showroom! These products are forged in America.








A Genuine Work of Art Like a masterpiece created in your own home, a Rumford Fireplace will add a unique element of resplendent beauty. At Superior Clay, we are proven leaders in the fireplace industry, sharing generations of wisdom to create structural clay fireplace components that promise optimal performance, safety, and style for an inviting home and lifetime of treasured memories.
