Real Estate Porn: Private-Island Edition

With this week's roundup of the hottest new listings on the market, you can finally check "buy private island" off your list: choose a Mediterranean jewel off Italy's Emerald Coast or a Canadian island with its own town (and private 18-hole golf course). You wish you lived here.

Location: Emerald Coast island near Porto Rotondo, Italy
Price: price upon request
Size: 10 acres
Key selling points: With a three-bedroom home with indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, two guest houses, and a yacht with a coffee bar, you can easily share the island's white-sand beaches, turquoise surf, outcroppings of natural granite, and juniper garden with a handful of guests. Or you could just bring a volleyball for company. Your island, your rules.
Listing: Christie's

Location: James Island with 18-hole golf course in British Columbia
Price: $75,000,000
Size: 780 acres
Key selling points: You've got 99 problems, but that extra 75 million you've been trying to get rid of won't be one of them after you take this Canadian jewel off the market. And with white-sand beaches, a private air strip, a Jack Nicklaus Signature 18-hole championship golf course, and your very own town (complete with a store, library, and gym), it's practically a steal.
