Live This Island east brother light station

You Could Get Paid $130,000 To Live On This Island

This is not a drill – you can actually get paid to live on an island off the coast of San Francisco. East Brother Light Station is on an island that’s home to both a lighthouse and a small inn, and the not-for-profit is looking for a couple to look after it.

There’s no Wi-Fi, no TV – just an absolutely beautiful island. Oh, and an annual salary of $130,000. SFGate reports that the job will provide bed and board on the island.

Who wouldn’t want to live on East Brother Light Station?
