There’s more than 20 miles of coastline on the property and 14,000 acres of pristine reef habitat just offshore, said to be the most extensive coastal reef system in Hawaii, according to the listing.

Oh, and if you have a private jet lying around, it’s only a 30 minute flight to Hawaii’s capital city, Honolulu, on Oahu.
