In case you have lots of time (& cash-ola) on your hands, perhaps consider buying your very own private island. Just imagine! Your own halcyon paradise – la isla – for writing poems & essays… “a room of one’s own.”
Where: Near Marathon, in the Florida Keys
Asking Price: $995,000
The turquoise-colored roofs you see in the picture are open-air sitting areas with decks, chairs, and a campfire cooking area. But the island also comes with a 38-foot houseboat, not pictured here, that sleeps 4-5 people. Great reefs nearby for snorkeling. All the seafood you can eat.
