A blue lagoon paradise, set in the crystal clear waters of French Polynesia, will be up for auction with Concierge Auctions next month.
Motu Tiano, a private island, went on the market Saturday for $11.88 million, but bids at its Aug. 23 auction will start at $6 million, said Cindy Jones, project sales manager for the property at Concierge Auctions. The secluded island is only a five minute boat ride away from bustling Raiatea, one of the largest Society Islands, with many shops and restaurants, according to the listing.
The 1,800-square-foot main house is fitted with classical Polynesian-style furnishings and amenities. There are three bedrooms, a loft and one bathroom.
The 17-acre sanctuary is ideal for “a family that’s really into outdoor activities,” said Ms. Jones.
Around the island there are deep waters to accommodate a 40- to 60-foot boat, a shallow reef for snorkeling, and great surfing conditions, she said.
One of the highlights of the property is the outdoor dock, featuring a boat house with gear for water sports.
The island has only had three owners, and the current owner has had the property for 18 years, Ms. Jones said.
“Life on Motu Tiano is peaceful and relaxing, and we will very much miss our home here, but as we approach retirement, we have decided it is time to pass on this beautiful home to another owner,” said Jim Simpson, vendor of the property.
