Scrounge up every last penny if you’re dreaming of owning your very own island!

A 6.2-acre gem off the coast of Vancouver Island is now up for grabs, perfect for those seeking a luxurious home away from home.

Pym Island, located near Swartz Bay, is listed by Sotheby’s International Realty for a whopping $7 million and is described as a “paradise” where “seclusion and convenience entwine.”

It’s just a 10-minute boat ride from Canoe Cove Marina and about 30 kilometres from downtown Victoria.

The private island boasts an incredible 2,700 feet of ocean frontage, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding islands, Mount Baker, and the Olympic Mountain range.

According to the listing, the purchase includes a mansion, five guest cottages, a caretaker’s residence, a tennis court, and two speedboats for convenient travel.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom main house features marble flooring, stone and marble fireplaces, an indoor pool house with a hot tub, a library, a chef’s kitchen, a games room, and an outdoor patio with a wood-fired oven.

The island is connected to the hydro grid, with a backup water connection to Vancouver Island, a diesel generator, two freshwater holding tanks, and fire suppression stations.

“Built in 1980, the four-bed, four-bath palatial main house also features his and hers master bedrooms with study and ensuites, a massive indoor pool house, dining rooms, vaulted-ceiling great room with wet bar, library, glass ceiling atrium, chef’s kitchen, outdoor patio with wood-fired oven, games room, self-contained guest/caretaker/nanny suite, as well as a classical top floor widow’s walk offering the island’s most elevated view of the surrounding seas,” the listing says.

The property was first listed for sale in 2023 for $6 million and in 2012 for $5.6 million. It is unclear if the property was sold during those times or relisted.

The small island was named after Lieutenant Frederick Whiteford Pym of the Royal Navy.
