The Castaway Island, a part of the Vanuatu island chain, is now for sale for almost $US 1.6 million.

Private tropical island Castaway features a 500 square meter mansion, and located North of the Santo Island, reports Daily Mail.

According to the sales agent, the island’s location is perfect as it is far enough away from bigger Vanuatu islands, so it does not suffer from mosquitoes.

“It’s everybody’s dream to have their own private tropical island – however few people can make the dream into reality. The reality is that it is easy to buy the island – then the challenge begins. Here the challenge has been met and won and the result is a truly magnificent, unique property. From the moment you arrive at the landing at Castaway Island you can see that everything has been constructed to exacting standards,” – the sales agent Private Islands Inc said.

“Whichever window you look from in this beautiful new home you can see the brilliant hues of the surrounding tropical waters. Wherever you walk, you see the tropical blues of the water and white sand or live coral surrounding the island – look further and you see other islands that give you a good feeling of not being too isolated yet at the same time having perfect privacy in your own neighbourless space.”

The house features hardwood floors as well as high ceilings and open plan livings spaces. The property even features indoor and outdoor showers.

Reportedly the island is also free from snakes, biting insects and wild animals.
