You can enjoy private island living right here in the United States! Located just 9 miles from Key West, this 14-acre island is easy to get to with a short boat trip and offers world-class fishing. Who knew there was a secluded getaway with such easy access to one of our favorite coastal cities? The island has two fully outfitted houses with stunning ocean views and wraparound porches. This listing may not last long - it’s one of the only privately owned islands in the Key West Wildlife Refuge.
This picturesque, undeveloped island offers up ten acres of pristine white-sand beaches and grassy hills. Colorful coral reefs of up to 40 feet surround the island, making it a perfect spot for diving and snorkeling. The undeveloped landscape offers a prime location for a secluded private residence or an ultra-luxe boutique hotel with just a few rooms. One of White Island’s most enticing qualities is its proximity to other islands in the Grenadines, including Canouan Island and its Grenadines Estate Golf Club with an 18-hole champion course.
If a private island residence could be described as “cozy,” that’s exactly what this one is. The house and guest cabin on the 3-acre island have 360-degree water views, granite countertops, and screened-in porches, plus a serious amount of cottage charm. The island is only 15 minutes from Honey Harbour and 2 hours from Toronto, making it an easy vacation home getaway. It looks like the perfect place to spend an afternoon lounging in Adirondack chairs and watching the waves crash against the rocky shores.
This island might be small in size (as in, only 3/4 of an acre), but it offers everything needed for a true tropical getaway, from white sandy beaches to a house fully powered with water and energy. It’s conveniently located on the north side of Panama in the Caribbean Sea in the Bocas Del Toro region, surrounded by calm waters. The house comes fully stocked with everything from kitchen tools to linens, so there’s no need to delay move-in by even a day. Tropical birds, flowers, and fruit trees abound in the lush, landscaped grounds.
With two sandy white beaches and no existing development, this island already has an approved subdivision plan for 17 individual lots for residential or commercial use on its five acres. Turn it into a resort or your own neighborhood for friends and family —the choice is yours. It’s located northeast of Belize City and just under a mile and a half from Belize's world-renowned Barrier Reef, making it an ideal location for dive and snorkel aficionados.
What a find: This island just 50 miles north of New York city on Lake Mahopac features not one, but two houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (a 5,000 square foot main house and a 1,200 square foot cottage). A helicopter-landing pad makes it easily accessible by private plane. (And really, what could be a better way to get to your own private island than by private helicopter?) If you’re not looking to buy, this property is also available to rent for corporate retreats while it’s on the market.
