For Sale: A Florida Keys Private Island Home That Proves Off-Grid Living Can Be Luxurious
The dreamy piece of real estate comes with three docks, a pool, sundeck, and its own saltwater moat.
If you’re lucky enough to live in the Florida Keys, one might say you’re lucky enough—every one of its 70,000-plus residents lives on an island, after all. But what’s better, one could argue, than living on an island? Living on your own sun-drenched island surrounded by nothing but tropical turquoise water.
Few are fortunate enough to count that as their blessing, but if you’re fortunate enough to have an extra $15 million floating around, here’s your chance to become one of those lucky few.
Just off of Marathon lies East Sister Rock island, a one-and-a-half acre mound of sand that happens to be on the market for a whopping eight figure price tag. In addition to being off-the-grid location-wise, the island is completely self-sufficient, powered entirely by wind and sun.

But don’t mistake its disconnectedness for a lack of any luxuries (that is, in fact, one of them).
Included in the price of East Sister Rock is a lavish, 2,300-Bahamian-style house with vaulted ceilings and a wraparound deck. The interiors boast upgraded finishes, wood floors, and a massive white stone fireplace.
Outside of the main house, the island also comes with a one-bedroom guest cottage, pool, sundeck, saltwater moat, and three boat docks. (However, as the listing points out, if you prefer to travel by helicopter, don’t worry—the island comes with a helipad, too.)
As for those of us who are still saving for the day we can bask on our own Florida Keys island, hope isn’t totally lost. According to the listing, fractional ownership in East Sister Rock is a possibility, too. Perhaps it’s time to gather your friends?
