10 Delightful Houses on Their Own Tiny Islands


We know no man is an island, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t love to live on one. After spotting these adorable tiny houses on tiny islands over on one of our favorite niche design blogs, we got to thinking. These humble little houses make our far-fetched dream of having an island of our very own decidedly more conceivable. With that, we’ve decided to champion the island house for every man now that we know you don’t have to be Johnny Depp to live on your own private island.

From the tiny bunkie retreats of the Thousand Islands to a stunning remote artist’s studio reachable only by boat to an island house with its own suspension bridge, click through to check out our roundup of island dwellings that have us dreaming of simple living, Gilligan’s Island-style. Then, tell us about your own private island fantasy in the comments below.
