If you’re looking for the ultimate luxury holiday, why not rent East Sister Rock Island, a tiny private island just off Florida Keys? Baroque Access tells us all about it
East Sister Rock Island is 1.5 acres of privacy in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean just a quarter mile from the shore of the city of Marathon, Florida Keys. This island paradise is home to a Bahamian-style house that is encircled by a wide wrap-around veranda and offers spectacular 360-degree ocean views. The luxury home boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms that accommodate up to nine people in the utmost comfort. There are 19 sliding glass doors to bring nature inside, high ceilings to give a sense of space and beautiful wooden floors throughout.
The house is exquisitely furnished and offers every possible luxury amenity, including a hammock, patio chairs for relaxing and savoring the sun rise or set. The deck is surrounded on all sides by sand, and the island even boasts its own moat, which is a great place for kayaking, snorkeling and swimming.
The house is 2,500 square feet in size and boasts a stunning open-plan kitchen and dining area, entertainment center with almost 100 channels to watch on abeautiful LCD TV as well as a pool table on the veranda.
The entire little island is surrounded by a coral reef offering an opportunity to discover the magical underwater world beneath the sea. Guests can enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving as well as numerous other water sports, including great fishing. In fact, tarpon fishing at the Seven Mile Bridge is world-famous, and it’s just 5 minutes by boat from East Sister Rock Island. Further south is a deep sea fisherman’s paradise, with sailfish, dolphin, marlin and wahoo on offer.
Of course, to make all of these facilities readily available, the island features two boat docks plus one on the mainland, a small guesthouse, swimming pool and spectacular garden. In fact, the mainland is only a three-minute boat ride away, if you wish to enjoy Marathon’s many shopping and entertainment offerings (yes, a 21 foot Carolina skiff is included in the deal!). Marathon itself is around two hours drive from Miami and just 45 minutes by car from Key West.
But here on the island, in your own little slice of paradise, you’re free to enjoy a barefoot luxury lifestyle, complete with relaxing on your own secluded slice of heaven.
A private island is literally a dream come true, a bucket list adventure for many. You can reach it either by boat, or by helicopter as the island has its own helicopter launch pad.
