A private island home inside a Florida state park just hit the market for $3.4 million

Private islands are nothing new in the state of Florida. But the ones we see tend to be small, isolated affairs, just big enough to host a small shack.

What if you could have 9 miles of uninhabited beaches in your backyard? What if your home could be nestled within the development-safe confines of an isolated state park on the Gulf of Mexico? That's exactly what's on offer at this Bali inspired retreat on the island that houses Cayo Costa State Park.

The 3-bed, 3-bath house sits on nearly two acres and is one of just a few homes allowed on the barrier island. The house is powered by solar power, propane and wells, making it fully off-the-grid and self-sufficient. The home is only accessible by boat and faces the Gulf sunsets.


The listing is represented by Mike McMurray of Royal Shell Real Estate. The sellers are asking for $3.4 million
