Breaking Travel News reports that Pumpkin Key, a private island in the Florida Keys, was put on the market on Wednesday.
It apparently offers a unique mix of seclusion, splendour and convenience and is part of the prestigious Ocean Reef community, located less than an hour from Miami.
The 10-hectare haven is dotted with palms and bougainvillea and lined with winding golf cart paths, serving as an ideal family compound or could be developed to include 12 bay-front homes owned by several families.
And get this – all building rights are in place and each lot has water, electricity and a telephone line extended from shore.
So, really, there’s no excuse for you not to buy it. You just may want to invest in a little helicopter/private jet to get you there, but, hey! That’s small fry.
What would you rather invest R1bn in - a private island or a luxury bush lodge? Tell us in the comment section below, chat to us on Facebook, tweet us at @news24travel or send us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
