Our Emphasis is on Habitable Private Islands!
There are more than 12,000 islands around the world, many of which are habitable private islands. Even if you find your piece of paradise, remember that nothing is perfect and there are some very important points to consider before buying an island to be sure that you enjoy the quality and standard you are looking for.
The following is a checklist that must be taken seriously and applies to all islands. It should be considered as a guideline to evaluate private islands so that you, the buyer, can determine which combination of pros and cons you can best live with.
The checklist works like this: it has 12 items and each is worth 2 points – so a perfect island would score 24 points. Realistically, however, if an island gets 66% of the maximum points, it can be considered habitable. This guideline is made for you, to ensure you know what you are buying.
