Islands have always been a part of our dreams, but now they are affordable and well within reach, whether for absolute ownership or for renting them out for a holiday.

- Motu Pakirikiri, French Polynesia
Looking for a perfect place to build your dream house, look no further. You really will have to push to do better than this uninhabited island near the Tahiti International Airport. Rest under the palm trees, swim with the dolphins and feel at one with nature. The island offers natural beauty at its best with an inspiring coastline.
- Isla Paloma, Panama
This exquisitely landscaped tropical Central American paradise offers a two-bedroom, one-bathroom house, boat house, and workshop, and is close to both Costa Rica and a village that provides groceries and services in exchange for American dollars. Most merchants speak Spanish but there is also a substantial Anglo expat community to keep you company. The property is fully self-powered with more than enough energy and water to sustain itself and points out that its average annual temperature of 80 degrees makes it an attractive place to either rent or live year-round
- Namaste Island, Michigan
You don’t have to be a yogi to appreciate the tranquility of this serene, densely wooded property near Traverse City and the Interlochen School of Arts. With its wild blueberry bushes and deep forests, the 7.5-acre island feels wild and yet is only 900 feet from the mainland, which makes it convenient for the days you might need a little city loving.
- Bachelor Island, North Carolina
True to its name, the accommodations on Bachelor Island are pretty minimalistic but the location in Core Sound and the four acres of untouched sandy beaches make it a perfect spot for hunting, fishing, and boating, these activities are enough to make up for the lack of interior design.
There are three cabins which can be customized according to your standards, or, alternatively, you could rent it out to bachelors and see the “Project X” remake in action.
- Little Harvest Caye, Belize
The array open swings, the outdoor pool and the general resort vibe of this gem of an island together create the impression that something about this island off the coast of Belize is too good to be true and, indeed, the purchase price only buys you a mere stake in the ownership of the well-maintained, beautifully landscaped property.The question is would you really need to have absolute ownership when you can enjoy the serene island without bearing the expensive costs.
- Cordwood Island, Ontario
This preppy paradise in the St. Lawrence River is a well-maintained estate which, with its Adirondack chairs and swimming-friendly amenities, feels like a summer camp. The island can be enjoyed all year round with the added amenities such as a fireplace and hot tub. The Main cottage, guesthouse and boathouse alike are comfortably furnished and provide the optimum island experience.
