6 Affordable Islands That Could Be Yours

In Malaysia today, buying a decent landed property or apartment will set you back an average of between RM500,000 to RM800,000. Then there’s the hefty bank loan that you’ll have to repay for the next 30 years of your life. What if we told you that for a similar amount of moolah, you could swap those four concrete walls—and a boring routine life—for an island?

During a bout of daydreaming, we discovered Private Islands Online, and learnt that purchasing an island isn’t quite financially impossible. Combing through the site, we found six not-ridiculously-expensive islands for sale—one costs as low as RM292,000!

Where is it? Ontario, Canada

How much? C$233,900 (RM731,328)

Part of the larger Bustard Islands group, Pearl Island is a scenic 0.6-acre property with waters that are deep enough for sailboats and float planes (you know, just in case you have extra money to spend). Purchase of the island also entitles you to a cabin and a two-bedroom cottage that is 80% complete.

Where is it? British Columbia, Canada

How much? US$72,900 (RM292,293)

This 3.3-acre island is decorated with Pine and Aspen trees. Its location on Stuart Lake—home to rainbow trouts and sturgeons—makes it a great outdoor recreational spot. The island also comes with an area that has been cleared for a garden and an old house—repair works necessary, though.

Befriend the wildlife in this three-acre private island. It comes with two cabins—although one is only 75% finished—which is convenient for when you have friends over! The completed cabin is equipped with solar power, surveillance system and they are even throwing in a swing set!

How much? C$219,000 (RM684,741)

If your idea of a perfect day involves fishing, then this 1.25-acre island is for you. When you’re done with the day, go home to a cozy three-bedroom, fully furnished cottage that sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the water.

Where is it? Florida, United States

How much? US$200,000 (RM801,900)

This 40-acre island may be underdeveloped but it is steep with history. A walk on its beach will lead you to discoveries of Native American arrowheads and pottery. Plus, it sits in the path of a manatee migration! If you don’t have the money, but own a mountain property in the US, the owner is willing to make a trade.

Let your imagination run wild on this 16-acre blank canvas. It has three beaches and promises a dazzling view of the stars—if you’re lucky, you may even see the Aurora Borealis! Extending up to six-storey high, the island offers privacy with no one but sheep as its inhabitants.
