Since Covid-19 lockdown in the UK and various countries across the world, here at Unique Property Bulletin we have noticed a staggering…

Fourfold increase in enquiries we have received from our readers looking for a remote style of life where they can work from safe home.

Ideally an island and via telecommuting on Skype, FaceTime and Zoom etc., whist maintaining a high quality work/life balance. Plus escape the overcrowded cities that have been seen to be a significant hazard to those susceptible to the more severe forms of Coronavirus.

The shocking thing that hit us in this example property was the comparison between…

Covid-19 deaths in the UK at 46,413 souls so far


Covid-19 deaths in the Norway at UK at 256 souls.

The UK has a population approximately ten times larger than Norway, so a very empirical extrapolation would be one country where you live has a 46,413 death rate and the other country which has an island you are looking at has a remarkably low pro rata Covid-19 nominal figure of 2,560.

Looking at what went onin London during Covid-19 is it any wonder why the UK has 20 times more Covid-19 deaths than Norway…

Little wonder our telephone has been ringing wildly off of the hook with city folk looking for a sane sanctuary somewhere elsewhere, other than sardine tubes of death.

It would be difficult to deliberately design a more efficient way of spreading Covid-19 than reducing the number of trains servicing key worker demand and then cramming those folk into such tightly packed spaces where social distancing stands no chance and they might as well all be giving each other mouth-to-mouth resuscitation contamination. Really, what chance do they have. In fact some of our friends are working in the major UK cities and require to use public transport. With official USA research evidencing the “safe” social distancing as being 26 feet, maybe it is time for you to study the rest of this island feature and the other islands we will be adding to Unique Property Bulletin. Then properly isolate yourself and your family in a nice place for 2 years or so where you can safely telecommute electronically via Skype, FaceTime and Zoom.

Of possible interest to poor folk on the London Underground tubes of death, social distancing on small islands and castles with moats has overloaded our switchboard. So there does seem to be a lot of legitimate concern on this matter and the possible solutions. Please remember there are a LOT of islands in the UK and sooner rather than later another British island will come up for sale. So maybe make a regular visit to this website to make sure you are not missing anything.

As this article about buying a private island was prompted because of there being so many Covid-19 orientated calls from our readers craving a safe harbour, it is important to reference some facts.

In the UK the grimly stark figure from the UK Government as of the date of this page (6 August 2020) is…

If the “excess deaths” actuarial model is utilised, then the UK Covid-19 deaths as at 30th June 2020 was in excess of 65,000.

Whereas in Norway it is a remarkably low figure that have suffered from this virus…

Having been lucky enough to own and/or lease small islands we really prefer that way of becoming physically free from Covid-19, or until the vaccine/medical regimen such as Dexamethasone is tested + approved by the regulators. Islands are a bit special and really do provide the most sublime of physical barriers.

Locating an island that is “turnkey” ready is also a challenge. Grønholmane Island is both. It is priced at £690,000. However to help those readers who are thinking seriously about this sort of adventure, perhaps for two to three years until, like the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1919, the Covid19 pandemic burns itself out, Unique Property Bulletin have worked out a way where you can own around half an island and a house ready to move into for £245,000.

One of the first questions you are likely to have is about getting to the island. This particular one is akin to one of the BBC Top Gear adventures. A 25 hour car journey from the Channel Tunnel. You will be far safer in your car than on a plane or train (see underground sardines above). Better still would be to purchase a motorhome RV vehicle for getting to your Norwegian island and back to the UK.

The journey from the UK to your island home is a magnificent one…

A big question you may have for this example we are studying is time taken to get to the island and distance.

Grønholmane Island, Manger, Near Bergen, Norway

The drive-time from the UK Channel Tunnel up to your new island home is approximately 25 hours.

There are tens of thousands of small islands in the world. During the 33 years that Unique Property Bulletin has been published, we have featured dozens of these.

However, those that are for sale at any one time are fairly rare. Finding one reasonably priced can be very difficult.

But as is our job here at UPB-HQ we researched a few candidates and came up with this one from several fairly quickly.

We must emphasise that there will be fresh UK islands for sale and these shall appear on the pages of Unique Property Bulletin. The Norwegian island will not suit many folk,

But we hope this page and essay gives our readers some helpful pause for thought.

As for the size of the island. Here is an aerial picture…

You may wish to build a modest bridge as if you choose the £245,000 house option, then two separate little islands will be 100% owned by you and a modest foot bridge would make for easier and more elegant access plus be quite picturesque and a good way to get your daily eercise ()without worrying about some Covidiot accidentally bumping into you.

In the aerial photo above  you can see the two islets on the right hand side. These would be included with your ownership of the island.

The inside of both houses on the island are turnkey ready to move into…

The Price of An island Sanctuary?

Grønholmane Island ~ The Price?

At Unique Property Bulletin our job is to find you interesting properties. Canididates that might make it onto your wish list. Indeed we do more than that and aim to work out a way to actually make what you want to happen to become real.

On first impression, this random Grønholmane Island nearly got put in the “unlikely” pile. Fortunately the tight-wallet editor was just a tad curious at what 8,250,000 Norwegian Krone looked like when converted to UK Sterling.

The exchange rate as at 6th August 2020 meant the whole island and two houses came in at around £692,000. This was a lot less than the millions it is priced at. A subliminal number, albeit i n Norwegian currency that almost made this a “miss” rather than a “hit”.

We can confidently call it a “hit” as one of our shareholders is ready to rent a motorhome and do a BBC Top Gear style adventure: drive from Portsmouth, through the Channel Tunnel and look at buying half the island and the bigge (more expensive) of the two houses.

This would mean your detached home on a safe island in a Covid-19 safe nation with 1/20th the fatality rate of the UK would cost around…
