Amenities include free Wi-Fi, a billiards table and a private pool and beach. The island is near attractions like Sombrero Beach, the Florida Keys Country Club and the Seven Mile Bridge.

One night on the private island costs $1,400, but the Friendsgiving deal costs $2,000 plus tax for a seven-night stay from Nov. 14-21. The reservation also includes a one-night private chef who will cook “the ultimate Friendsgiving meal.”
