A rare private island in the Florida Keys is now on the market

It may be a tiny shack on an island, but it could be your tiny shack on your island. Right now, Sea Shell Key, also known as "Pretty Joe Rock," is currently on the market in the Florida Keys.

Located at 1 Pretty Joe Rock in Marathon, Florida, the private quarter-acre island is currently used as a vacation rental, and was once featured on HGTV's "Buying the Beach."  The 1,006-square-foot home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as three decks, an easement for access and parking, a deepwater dock, and zero neighbors.

The island is also but fully capable of building pretty much whatever you want on it, since it's connected with shore electricity, and city water.

Pretty Joe Rock is currently asking $2,500,000 and the listing agent is Gidget Jackson of Re/Max Realty Group.
