An off-the-grid island house is now for sale inside Florida's Cayo Costa State Park

Accessible only by boat, a rare Florida home that's almost entirely cutoff from civilization is now on the market.

Located at 1000 Cayo, in Captiva, the 3,014-square-foot home sits inside of Cayo Costa State Park on the island of Cayo Costa, which is a nine-mile barrier island just south of Gasparilla Island.

The home comes with three-bedrooms and three-bathrooms, as well as dock with a 10,000-pound boat lift, multiple boardwalks, an outdoor kitchen, custom mahogany cabinets, a gazebo and a solar grid hooked up to a full-house lithium battery system.

But arguably the the best thing about this house is the direct access to miles of undeveloped shoreline, which boast some of the state's best fishing grounds. 

The current asking price $3,450,000, and the listing agents are Mike Mcmurray and Chad Reedy of Royal Shell Real Estate, Inc.
