One of Florida’s best kept secret islands that even we don’t hear about too much is Black’s Island, a seven-acre private destination that packs a massive punch. It’s the kind of place that offers a little of everything that travelers and Floridians alike love about the Sunshine State. Boating, fishing, sunbathing, water sports, kayaking, clay shooting—it’s an all-in-one slice of paradise that manages to fly under the radar because, well, Florida Man loves to keep secrets.
With just 26 beachside bungalows, which are inarguably among the coolest accommodations anywhere in the state, this is also a destination that spoils guests with seclusion and space. Crowds are never an issue, and everyone might make a new friend or two before heading back to the mainland, which is only 10 minutes away. But now, the most loyal visitors have a new opportunity: to own a bungalow.
Former MLB star Ryan Klesko is listing four private bungalows for sale on this private island in Florida’s panhandle region with high-end real estate brokerage Corcoran Reverie. Two feature the Cay floor plan and the other two offering the Atoll layout. The former boasts approximately 1,225-sq. ft. of one-story living space, including two bedrooms and two bathrooms, while the latter is a two-story, 1,425-sq. ft. concept with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Each bungalow has a fully equipped kitchen and views for days. The Cay units are available for $1.5 million, while the Atolls are $1.6 million.
Obviously, a big draw for these bungalows will be the ability to rent them through the vacation program, as a dedicated management team is already in place. In addition to the aforementioned activities, guests can enjoy the island’s clubhouse and cabana, pool, sundecks, floating trampolines, and much more, while kids will especially love spotting all the birds and marine life who call this St. Joseph Bay oasis home.
