The island has self-contained utilities: a well, a water tower and tank, four generators, a septic tank, fuel trailer tank, two fuel storage tanks and two propane tanks. It can be accessed by boat or floatplane and has a protected harbor with a rock breakwater, 52-foot pier, a metal ramp and a floating dock. A video tour is after the jump.
"My family has always been into big projects, and when we ran across Vendovi Island, we knew what our next project was," said David Fluke, the island's owner. "It has kept us very close as a family, and it's been a great place for us to escape for the past 43 years."
