You can now rent an entire Caribbean private island on Airbnb

If you thought that having exclusive holidaying rights to a Caribbean island was the sort of thing only Richard Branson could dream of, think again.

Because Airbnb is renting out Bird Island, just off the coast of Belize, for a steal.

For just $595 or £456 (how much do you think private islands normally are to rent out?!), you can have this island entirely to yourself to chill, swim and drink jellied coconuts.

Needless to say, this is a kind of self-catering stay so you’ll have to bring your own food with you for the duration but the house on the island does have all the modern amenities you’d want.

It has a master bedroom with a double bed and two separate cabanas – so you can bring up to six people with you.

There’s Wi-Fi – crucial for maintaining that #privateislandlife Instagram feed going strong. There’s a good bathroom, solar and wind-powered energy, a fridge.

And the best bit, aside from the privacy, is that there are no mosquitoes on the island.

To get there, you simply need to catch a boat from Placencia – the price of which is included in the overall rental fee.

Bring your own snorkelling equipment and Moet and you’ve got yourself a holiday to rival Richard’s.
