This Island Retreat Is the Ideal Remote Residence
If the news cycle combined with a couple of pandemic years has you thinking about dropping everything and moving to an off-grid home, then you’re in luck.
A rare Florida property that’s only accessible by boat has hit the market. Located in Cayo Costa State Park, this remote home is completely cut off from civilization.
Off-Grid Island Retreat Rundown
This impressive island oasis sits on 1.8 acres within the 2,500-acre Cayo Costa State Park located on the island of Cayo Costa. The 3,014-sq.-ft. home provides residents with a one-of-a-kind living experience, including complete privacy from society at large.
While the property is remote, residents here won’t be roughing it. The property’s state-of-the-art solar panel grid is hooked up to a lithium battery and generator system that easily powers everything within the home.
If you want to find external entertainment or enjoy a dinner date away from home, Boca Grande, Captiva, and Sanibel Island are only a quick boat ride away.
This private island retreat feels more like a five-star vacation resort than a home, meaning your worries will wash away with each break of the stunning sea.

Breaking Into the Luxury Real Estate Market
Have you dreamed about touring and selling impeccable properties like this off-grid island retreat? Becoming a luxury real estate agent isn’t impossible, but it does take a lot of hard work and dedication to serve clients whose time is quite literally money.
As evidenced by this island home, each luxury property is unique, and becoming a successful luxury real estate agent requires vision and the ability to highlight each property’s one-of-a-kind features. It’s also worth noting that, while the commission checks tend to be larger for luxury real estate agents, they’re also less frequent. These glamorous homes often appeal to a smaller audience who typically take years to locate and then successfully navigate the purchasing process.
