It's no secret that the cost of living in the Sunshine State is INSANITY — especially when trying to purchase real estate in Miami. Even just buying a condo will run you insane amounts. Crazily enough, this private island in The Keys is more affordable than many Miami homes.\nEaster Sister Rock Island sits alone in the sea, just a 5-minute boat ride off the coast of Boot Key & Marathon Florida; it boasts panoramic views of the ocean from its remote location surrounded by a striking circular rock formation.\nUpon the unrivaled seclusion of this island sits a sprawling 2300 square foot home, featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. According to the listing, each room has insane views that you can't buy anywhere else.\nPrivate Islands Inc | privateislandsonline\nThe listing describes the interior as having an open floor plan with beachy toned hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings, & sliding glass doors leading to a 2880 square foot wrap-around covered deck.\nYou'll also find the island surrounded by a saltwater moat, with a pool, sundeck, as well as a 1 bed 1 bath guest cottage on the property. Talk about living in an actual paradise.\nPrivate Islands Inc | privateislandsonline\nSo what would it coast to own a piece of paradise like this? Apparently $15,000,000. While that's still a pretty penny, when compared to homes in Miami it's almost pocket change.\nCondos in Miami like this listing in Brickell are going for nearly $19 mil, while another extravagant condo home on Biscayne Boulevard is going for upwards of $25,000,000.\nPrivate Islands Inc | privateislandsonline\nThe island even includes things that those expensive Miami condos don't offer, such as a boat to get to and from the island, 4 boat docks (including 1 on the mainland), and even a helicopter pad.\nThe island is even totally self-sufficient & off the main grid, with both solar & wind energy generators. WiFi is available on the island too, so there are no interruptions to your Netflix binge nights.\nLikely though, you'd be out lounging in the pool, exploring the surrounding reefs, fishing or diving for sunken treasures right from your very own island. We're definitely adding this to our list of dream homes for when we win the lotto.\nIf you're looking for more Florida islands for sale, check out this 15-acre private Island.
