The home of "The Suntan King" is now for sale in Florida.

Hawaiian Tropic sun tan lotion founder Ron Rice passed away at the age of 81 last May, and now his massive Ormond Beach house is on the market for $5,999,900.

Located at 175 Ocean Shore Blvd., the 12,414-square-foot home comes with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as two outdoor pools and one indoor-outdoor pool, two owner's suites, 200-feet of beachfront, an entertaining room with a light up disco dance floor, and more.

Rice invented Hawaiian Tropic in a garbage can in his garage in 1969, and eventually sold the company to Playtex in 2007 in a deal valued at $1.9 billion.
