Living on a private island is an experience in itself. Imagine waking up to just the sound of the water lapping at the shore or the call of birds and nothing else; completely secluded from everything.
In a large group or for a family reunion, a private island might even be your best option when it comes to saving money. Here are a few amazing islands for rent on Airbnb for incredible prices.
