Dear
Island Enthusiasts,

Alexis Pappas, Director of Operations
The first weeks of 2008 have been full of activity for us here at Private Islands, and the wide variety of new properties we’re offering are a reminder of how incredibly international the private island market can be. Browse our Latest section for islands in Finland, Turkey, Tasmania and many other exotic and unusual regions.
 
The beautiful Marlborough Sounds divide the North and South Islands of New Zealand, and are often considered one of the most stunning places on earth. Rising like a mountain out of the clear deep waters is Puangiangi, one of the rare fully-private islands ever on the market in the Sounds. Looking to the North Island, the pretty area of Keri Keri has Rahui, which is actually a pair of two small islands that hold a luxurious 5000sq foot lodge with a game room, and a separate 2-bedroom cottage. Fantastic fishing, sailing and other water sports are found in the surrounding Bay of Islands, and a country club and gold course is nearby.
 
Also listed this New Year, the sprawling Mouton Island is the gem of Nova Scotia and one of the most spectacular islands to ever hit the market. Imagine your own private, pristine lake dotted with more gorgeous little islands, and long expanses of soft sandy beaches that look transplanted from the Caribbean. Located in a bay of crystal clear water and close to a charming town with all amenities, this almost 1000-acre property is the largest private island for sale on the entire North American east coast. Conveniently located, Halifax International Airport is just 2 hours away, and the island has serious potential for a private airstrip.
