All Yours For Just $34 Million

From the ebay posting:

Offered is the timeless ownership of one of the finest islands in the world and one of the last freehold islands in the South Pacific paradise of Fiji.

THE ISLAND

The 225 acre island is 1 mile long by 1/3 mile wide with 150 foot elevations, surrounded by a 5,000 acre lagoon which completely encircles the island, offering protection from extreme tides and providing the island with calm tranquil waters ideally suited for water sports.

The crystal clear water has 200-foot visibility and is a comfortable 80 degrees Fahrenheit most of the year.

The island was a safe haven from storms for Polynesian sailors over the centuries; the entrance to the lagoon is 35 feet deep and about 200 feet wide, recently allowing yachts over 200 feet the serene protection of the lagoon. The island still provides a safe and luxurious haven from the storms of everyday life and is the only resort in the largely uninhabited and pristine archipelago, offering privileged visitors an image of Polynesian life as it was hundreds of years ago.

The island has spectacular sugar-white beaches on the east and western sides of the island, with the villa development on the western side to take advantage of the magnificent South Pacific sunsets. The island was an operating coconut plantation in the 19th century leaving the entire island is scattered with swaying coconut palms creating the ultimate tropical ambiance.

The island’s limestone has created numerous caves and tide pools, perfect for exploring.

The island is home to rare coconut crabs, giant clams, leather back turtles, doves, and many other extraordinary birds and marine mammals. A strict conservation program has been instituted to ensure the preservation of all marine and wild life. Guests will marvel at the pristine ecosystem while indulging in all the amenities of a luxurious five star resort and spa.

THE RESORT

The island is home to a world class resort development (80% complete), with an estimated completion of 6 to 9 months.

The main complex, comprising the lobby, lounge, dining pavilion, meeting facilities and full service spa, soars 100 feet above the turquoise lagoon, offering sublime vistas and spectacular sunsets. The lavish private villas are scattered along the crystal clear water’s edge on a magnificent white sand beach. Spa tubs built for two complete each of the 21 guest Bures (Villas), which will feature mosquito-netted four-poster beds and sumptuous furnishings.
