Bezos Bunker: Amazon founder buys third property in Florida's wealthy hideaway, reports say

Amazon Inc. founder Jeff Bezos purchased a home for approximately $90 million in Indian Creek Village, Florida — colloquially known as Billionaire Bunker — in an off-market transaction, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

It would be the third mansion the Washington Post owner has purchased on the man-made barrier island in Biscayne Bay off the Miami coast.

Bezos will live in the newly purchased home, which last sold in 1998 for $2.5 million, while the other two homes he purchased are torn down, according to Bloomberg.

The mansion Bezos purchased is reported to have been owned by Javier Holtz, who is listed as the vice-mayor of the municipality on its website.


Earlier this year Bezos completed the sale of 50 million shares of Amazon that returned about $8.5 billion.

The internet retail tycoon purchased two homes on in Indian Creek Village in 2023.

In June Bezos paid $68 million for a three-bedroom home, according to Fortune magazine.

The house — listed as being 9,300 square feet — previously sold for $1.4 million in 1982, according to county records.

Bezos purchased a second home in Indian Creek in November for $79 million.

The 23,000-square-foot mansion at 12 Indian Creek Island Road, situated on 80,000 square feet of land, features a wood-paneled library, movie theater, wine cellar, wet bar and cabana house, according to a Facebook post by Dina Goldentayer Real Estate.

There were 41 waterfront properties on the island as of 2017, according to the municipality's website.
