Escape to a Private Island in the Florida Keys

What's the best part about living on a private tropical island? The colorful sunsets, warm ocean breezes, water activities galore – you can do whatever you want, whenever you want.

If you've ever dreamed of living on your own private island, here's your chance. Pumpkin Key located near Key Largo is for sale for $110 million. It's located in Card Sound Bay, a short boat ride from Key Largo or a 15-minute helicopter ride from South Beach. The island is located just three miles offshore of North America's only living coral barrier reef. 

Currently the island features one main home with three bedrooms, two caretaker cottages, a dock master's apartment and a 20-slip marina. Pumpkin Key is self sufficient when it comes to water and electricity. Golf cart paths circle around the 26-acre island. And the tennis courts in the center of the property can double as a helipad.

Listed by Russell Post with Sotheby's, the lush, tropical landscape offers endless possibilities for development. The island is close to Ocean Reef, a private membership club in Key Largo, as well as the development site for Playa Largo Resort, a new luxury hotel scheduled for completion in 2015.
