Fashion icon Donna Karan is selling 7 of her 10.5-acres on lush and secluded Parrot Cay for $39 million. Parrot Cay, part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, is heralded as one of the Caribbean's most remote and beautiful retreats. Its turquoise waters and white-sand beaches have lured such celebs as Bruce Willis, Christie Brinkley and Keith Richards, who have owned homes there; and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who were married there in 2005.

Karan's $39 million offering includes two, 3.5-acre parcels of her retreat, which she calls "The Sanctuary."

One parcel includes:
  • two, four-bedroom vacation villas.
  • gathering pavilion that seats 20.
  • separate chef's pavilion.
  • three swimming pools.
The other parcel has a yoga pavilion and a four-bedroom staff headquarters.

Karan bought The Sanctuary in 2002. She's keeping her family home there, but doesn't need the rest of the buildings and acreage, according to listing agent Katherine Baryluk of Regency Limited, affiliated with Christie's International Real Estate.

In addition to having Karan as a neighbor, new owners of the parcels will have access to the grand amenities of the Parrot Cay Resort, including butlers, maids, chefs and a staff that will travel far and wide to satisfy their every whim.
