The outdoor massage room where underage girls would tend to Jeffrey Epstein is seen for the first time in new video shot by two men who claim they raided his Caribbean hideaway.
Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change and Jeff Berwick were able to get onto the island and explore Epstein’s office, a few of the underground lairs and get close enough to the pedophile’s infamous temple on Little St James to reveal that the doors of the structure are in fact painted on the building.
Their journey was cut short though when they were forced to flee from staff who began chasing them down they said in the video.
And there is still plenty of staff on the island, as in one shot a man can be seen in the reflection of a window walking just a few feet away from Rudkowski with what looks like a mop and some towels.
It is unclear who the fresh towels are for.

There is also a look at an office on the island, which has the manual for a charged and a little British flair in the form of a sign that reads: ‘Keep Calm and Carry On.’
Next up, Rudkowski explored a few of those underground structures, including one that appeared to house the island’s generator.
The final scene of the men ‘fleeing,’ shot a few minutes after a non-nonchalant island staffer strolled by Rodkowski, is cut with a look at the massage room.
Two beds lay on a floor in outdoor hut, which has a full kitchen in the neighboring room.
The biggest surprise however is the doors om Epstein’s temple.
The actual entrance to the structure is boarded up, and what has long appeared to be a functional wooden door turns out to be a bit deceptive.
Once up close, the video reveals that those two doors on the temple are painted on, and that Epstein has his initials on the temple.
The temple on the island remains without its dome however, which has been missing for some time.
One local told DailyMail.com that they were under the impression that Epstein had his staff remove the dome ahead of the hurricane.
Irma, which was a Category 5 storm when it made landfall on the island, is still the most powerful hurricane to ever hit the Atlantic region.
The dome never went back up however and now the temple sits unadorned and striped on the island.
The temple has been of great interest to members of the QAnon community, who had been talking about the island long before Epstein’s current arrest or Julie Brown’s explosive expose in The Miami Herald.
Many members of the community believe that Epstein hid young girls he allegedly enslaved in underground rooms below the temple and other parts of the island.
There is no concrete evidence to support that claim, but the community’s belief that a famous actress was recruiting young victims for Epstein is not completely implausible.
Epstein was the owner of not one, but two islands in the Caribbean, having more than doubled his property holdings in January 2016 when he paid $18 million for Great St James.
That 162-acre property is located next to Little St. James, the 71.5-acre island he purchased in 1998 for $7.95 million.
And Epstein had big plans for the latest addition to his already sizable real estate portfolio prior to his death.
This included the addition of a barge dock, two homes, cottages, an amphitheater, gardens, a marine electrical cable, solar array and generator, storage building, security building, work shed, machine shop, and an ‘underwater office and pool.’
That barge and a few completed structures, as well as construction equipment, are still visible in aerial images of the island.
This work has been done despite the fact that only the construction of a flagpole and repair of cisterns has been approved on the island.
Epstein’s plans hit a snag however soon after he purchased the island when he was hit with a pair of cease and desist orders.
The first citation was ‘in regards to unpermitted land clearing.’
Epstein eventually managed to remedy that situation by paying a $70,000 fine records show, and paid an even steeper fine after the second offense in October.
The exact amount is not known, but the fine was between $140,000 and $180,000.
Work then continued, mostly on clearing the dense vegetation to make a main road around the island, until December of last year.
That is when Epstein was again hit with yet another cease and desist, which it seems he opted to ignore.
Workers have continued to forge ahead on the plans over the past few weeks, even while Epstein has been behind bars.
Authorities had been trying to get on the island to determine what was going on for close to a year prior to Epstein’s death.
He had erected ‘No Trespassing’ signs throughout the island due to the area’s popularity with tourists, who are now turning out in even higher numbers after his death.
Local laws make all land below the tide or bush lines public property, so Epstein cannot legally kick people off those lands, but he is being vigilant about making sure no one wanders onto his property. n
This continued building mirrors Epstein’s decision back in 2007 to build up his compound of Little St James after learning he was likely heading to prison.
Soon after his release, that became his primary residence.
These two islands were not his only major holding in the area either, with Epstein also owning a 50 percent stake in America Yacht Harbor, a port that has slips for 123 yachts, sailboats and pleasure crafts as well as a strip mall of offices.
Epstein’s firm Southern Trust Company was in that same strip, where he operated at least 15 LLCs in the two decades prior to his death according to public records obtained by DailyMail.com.
Those records also revealed that his office manager for much of that time was Cecile de Jongh, the former first lady of the Virgin Islands.
It is unclear what, if any , benefits Epstein had been afforded because of his hiring of de Jongh.
She was not first lady when she took the job, and her husband John’s run happened to coincide with the exact moment the allegations against Epstein first became public.
He was eventually elected to office in 2007 and served two terms as governor despite his wife’s ties to Epstein.
