A 10-minute-flight from Miami's South Beach via helicopter or a 10-minute-drive from Key Largo via boat will take you to an island in Florida, called Pumpkin Key. It's there and it's all alone. Waiting for its new proud owner and his or her 98 million euros. Is that you?
The island is self sufficient with water and electric already in place from shore to the 12 large bay front lots. There is already one main home with three bedrooms, two caretaker's cottages, and a dock master's apartment. Among numerous other things, you will also find tennis courts (that also serve as a helipad) and a 20-slip marina, so you and your friends can come and anchor your mega-yachts. Tempted? You can apply here.
If you have too much money and you don't know what to do with it, treat yourself to your own, private paradise. Why not? And if you have more than 'only' 98 million euros, which is the amount the island goes for these days, then there may be a new kind of turism being born. It is suggested 12 luxury villas with private beaches should be built on the island, so the owners and friends can come, relax and leave completely unnoticed. Though the island is not really isolated, it offers a great deal of privacy, safety and tranquility, while the surroudings promise endless opportunities to take on a variety of water sports, like snorkeling, scuba diving and sport fishing or just discovering the living coral barrier reef, which is said to be the only one in North America.
