Florida Keys For Sale!
Tuesday, 9th June 2009 by Alex Steinberger
In the world of high-end real estate, nothing says “I’m richer than you” like your very own private island. In the Florida Keys, an archipelago made up of more than 1,700 islands, it is relatively easy to find your own personal tropical retreat for sale or rent… provided you can afford it!
First we have Melody Key, former home of 311 vocalist Nick Hexum1. This 5.5 acre key can be yours for the low price of 3.8 million dollars and includes a fully furnished home with 2 boats, as well as a mainland dock for launching island expeditions.
The future owner of Coupon Key will inherit a 9 bedroom house with separate caretaker’s quarters as well as 14.6 acres of island to explore. Plenty of room to pretend you’re a pirate, or even roam around without any clothes on… if you’re into that sort of thing.
Finding yourself a bit strapped for cash? Fear not, there is a luxury island for everyone!2 Though not quite a key or an island, sprawling 0.5 acre East Sister Rock is available for rent on a weekly basis. With its very own dock, pool, and helicopter pad, East Sister Rock is a perfect choice for the millionaire on a budget.
Though the Florida Keys tend to have beautiful weather during the spring and summer months, it would be wise to exercise caution when visiting East Sister Rock during hurricane season as the island’s house sits only 5 metres above mean sea level.
