If you think the only people who vacation on private islands are the Brangelinas and Clooneys of the world, think again: The remote and gorgeous Bird Island near Placencia, Belize will make you feel like an A-list celebrity — even if just for a few days. In fact, it’s so remote that you can’t get there without the help of the owners, who graciously take renters on a 30 minute boat ride to their private oasis.
Once you arrive you’ll understand the hype, after all, you’ll literally be surrounded by pristine blue water. Nearly every room in the house has a view of paradise (you can even see the ocean from the master bed!).
And snorkelers will love that all they have to do is wade into the water to experience some of the best reefs in the world.
But perhaps the best part is just how affordable this rental is at $350 per night. It’s basically every honeymooner’s dream destination. Or perhaps a bride’s fairytale wedding venue. Or just the best family reunion spot ever, since kids and adults alike will enjoy everything the island has to offer, like s’mores roasting, fishing, and hammock lounging.
