You Can Own A Home On A Private Island In Florida For Less Than A Condo In Miami

Secluded in paradise, and you can still get Wi-Fi.
Real Estate In Miami Is More Expensive Than A Private Island In The Florida Keys

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.

Easter 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.

Upon 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.

The 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.

You'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.

So 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. 

Condos 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.

The 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.

The 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.

Likely 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.
