If there’s anyone who deserves a private island getaway it’s you — and seven of your closest friends.

Located in the Florida Keys, vacation goers will find a three-bedroom home including a master with a king, a guest room with a double, and the third bedroom with double bunk beds. Though the rooms come with plush beds, Egyptian cotton linens, and plasma televisions, the real star of the show is outside the doors.

On the private island, guests can lounge by their heated private pool and jacuzzi on any number of its lounge chairs. They can also swing for as long as they’d like on the outdoor hammocks suspended between the island’s palm trees. Or, those feeling a bit more adventurous can paddle out into the crystal blue waters on kayaks provided for every guest.

Inside the home, the group can also hang out in its top floor lounge, which comes with panoramic views of the ocean surrounding the home. Guests can open the doors and let the ocean breeze flow in from the three balconies outside as well.

Of course, the home comes with plenty more to entertain people as well, including more flatscreen televisions in the lounge area and cozy leather sofas to spread out on for movie night.

Guests can also cook up a feast for their crew in the home’s custom-built kitchen, which comes with everything they’d need including Viking appliances and more. Though, for those looking to relax, a private chef can be brought onto the island to take care of everything as well.

To get to the home, the owners suggest that guests fly into Key West and rent a car to drive the 30 minutes to Summerland Key. There, island guests will be met by the home’s staff and brought to the island on their own private boat. The staff can then accommodate all your needs from grocery delivery to ferrying people back and forth for nights out on Summerland Key.

The home starts at $1,777 per night, meaning it will set everyone back just $222 per night per person, which is just about the cheapest private island experience you’ll have anywhere on Earth.
