THIS STUNNING private island may look Robinson Crusoe-esque from the outside but the properties contain luxurious interiors and it could all be yours for around £1.9m.
The incredible images show the island from above with its lush greenery giving way to beach huts and wooden boardwalks.
Other striking shots show the surprisingly modern interiors of the properties with spacious bedrooms, a dining area overlooking the water and balconies offering spectacular views.
Maná Island is located in Angra Dos Reis, Brazil and is currently listed on www.vladi-private-islands.de for around £1.9m.
“Located in Brazil’s fashionable, up-and-coming Angra Dos Reis region, Isla Mana is the perfect property for those who like their private islands as elegant as they are exclusive,” states the listing.
“Situated only 3km from the port of Brachuy, this picturesque private island can be found on the breathtaking Costa Verde coast in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Separated from Rio by either a three hour drive or a 20-minute helicopter journey; the island forms part of a larger archipelago in the beautiful bay of Angra.
“Protected from the open seas by a series of neighbouring islands, the vivid emerald green waters surrounding Isla Mana bring with them a fabulous tropical climate, encouraging the growth of the varied vegetation which so characterises the island landscape.
“Hidden within the lush greenery of Isla Mana are a series of attractive properties. Consisting of a caretaker’s house, a boathouse, a 120m² main house and four bungalows, the buildings here offer much scope for development – either into a grand private residence or a boutique tourism venture.”
The main house is home to a living room, two bedrooms, a dining room, an impressive kitchen and a dramatic wooden decking area, which offers a great opportunity for al fresco dining. The four bungalows offer further accommodation options, each serving as a private suite with bedroom, bathroom and breath-taking ocean views.
The bungalows share an additional decking zone with covered dining area, leading on to a bar at one end and the glittering waters of the Atlantic at the other. Pathways connect the main house to this more touristic region, snaking through tropical flora and fauna and linking the island’s buildings to a helipad and the docking area.
“Further attractive features include the island’s solar powered electricity network, stone-carved freshwater pool and palm-fringed landscaped lawn – perfect for taking in the sun or enjoying a tasty barbecue in good company,” continues the listing.
“Self-sufficient thanks to its electricity supply, its three-cistern water-supply and its 70,000 litre deposits, Isla Mana is truly a private island paradise.
