SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2010) - The chance to own your own island doesn't arise often, but on September 30, Vendovi Island, a 216-acre island in the San Juan Archipelago, will sell at real estate auction. J. P. King Auction Company, the nation's leading real estate auction marketing firm, will conduct the event.

Located off the coast of Washington, Vendovi Island has 13,000 feet of shoreline and six beaches, providing an opportunity to own the ultimate private escape. It has been owned as a family retreat since 1966 with improvements including a four-bedroom home and self-contained utilities.

"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."

Completely self-contained, the island has utilities provided privately onsite including a well, a water tower and tank, four generators, a septic tank, fuel trailer tank, two fuel storage tanks and two propane tanks. The island 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.

The typography of the island ranges from sea level to 338 feet. The home sits on 10 acres, completely manicured from the home to the harbor, and has zoning approval for additional improvements.

"A complete and relaxing escape doesn't come much more ideal than this," said Craig King, president and CEO of J. P. King Auction Company. "Its seclusion and beautiful scenery still comes with the conveniences of self-contained utilities and convenient access."

The property is available to be previewed through auction day by scheduling a tour through J. P. King.

The auction will take place on Thursday, September 30 at 11 a.m. at the Hyatt at Olive Eight in Seattle, located at 1635 8th Avenue. For additional information, individuals may contact J. P. King at 800.558.5464 or visit the company's website at
