A former Amazon.com executive and hospitality CEO has listed a waterfront Palm Island estate he owns for a whopping $39 million, The Real Deal has learned.

Christian Jagodzinski sold Telebook, Germany’s first online book retailer, to Amazon in 1998. He founded Villazzo, a luxury vacation home rental agency, in November 2002 and is the company’s president. He’s also the CEO of Desdemona Capital, a real estate and private equity investment company.

10 Palm Avenue is part of Villazzo’s portfolio and is listed on the company’s website. The property includes a 130-foot heated pool with a Jacuzzi, grotto and waterfall; a beach volleyball court; gym; and movie theater.

The eight bedroom, six-bathroom and two-half-bathroom mansion has 9,893 square feet and sits on a 35,348-square-foot lot, according to Miami-Dade County property records.

Jago Tech Investments LLC paid $2.25 million for the site in February 1999. Jagodzinski is listed as a manager on the owner’s corporate filings. The house was built in 2002, and faces Biscayne Bay toward South Beach.

Lisa Blake of Villazzo is the listing agent, according to the MLS.

Also on Palm Island, which is off of the MacArthur Causeway and home to multimillionaires, is Al Capone’s former mansion: 93 Palm. Capone’s former estate is getting a facelift and new life as a production, filming and photo shoot venue, TRD previously reported.
