I got a tour of the only home for sale on Miami's 'Billionaire Bunker,' a private island that hedge-fund billionaires and celebs call home. Here's a look inside the $24 million mansion.

In Biscayne Bay in Miami sits a tiny, high-security private island nicknamed the "Billionaire Bunker" for the wildly wealthy and high-profile people who live there.

The 34-home community, called Indian Creek Village, is home to just 42 people, as of the 2017 census. Billionaire investor Carl Icahn, supermodel Adriana Lima, Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, and Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula are among the island's elite residents.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z also once owned a home on the island, which they sold to a Dutch businessman in 2010 for $9.3 million.

The island is kept safe by a private, 13-person police force that that even patrols the perimeter of the island from the water, according to luxury realtor Nelson Gonzalez, the senior vice president of EWM Realty International.

Only one home in Indian Creek is currently for sale: an eight-bedroom, Mediterranean-style mansion listed for $24 million. On a recent trip to Miami, Gonzalez gave me a tour of the opulent home he's selling.

The village's 34 homes are built around the perimeter of the island, giving them all waterfront views. The center of the island is occupied by an 18-hole golf course and a country club.
