They say money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you 6.5 acres of serene, tropical seclusion in Central America. Royal Palm Island, a private island in Belize, has hit the market for an asking price of $6 million.
The island would make an ideal vacation spot, or a permanent home, for someone looking to get away from it all. Located on Little Frenchman Caye, which is just 1 mile from the Belize Barrier Reef and 9 miles from Belize City, the island offers residents private beach views of the pristine Caribbean Sea.
If you're worried about getting lonely in isolation, the island offers plenty of room for guests. The 6.559-acre property has five cottages, which each feature two air-conditioned bedrooms and private cabanas out front. The most luxurious building is the owner's residence, with its cozy ambience and beachfront setting. Other island amenities include conference facilities, a spa, a dining and bar area, and four boats that come with the property.
One of Royal Palm Island's most appealing qualities is its eco-friendliness. The island runs on solar power and a reverse osmosis water system, making it fully self-sustainable. So when you arrive at the tropical getaway, you can plan to stay a while.
Royal Palm Island is currently for sale through Gil Castillo of SANCAS Realty. You can reach out to him here to learn more about the listing.
