Hey everyone, I just got back from the best vacation i have ever had. I recently rented a private island. It was great and I really recommend it for anyone looking for a "different" type of vacation.

I booked my island through a private island website. I don't really want to advertise it on the forum, but if you type private island into google it is the first result.

one week on the island felt like three (and I mean that in the best possible way!)

cheers,
A

Well, according to that site, prices start at 35,000 Canadian, up to millions upon millions. Renting seems much more reasonable..starting at 500 USD a week for a Croatian island to 10,000 USD a week.
AHAHA, There is even one in Michigan! Well, in the winter you could walk out too it ;) Ice gets thick there.

oh, private island i have a question, once u rent that island, for example for a week, is it really means that YOU are the only person who stay there for a week???

Some of them ARE private, some are national parks except for a small part of it, some say to expect swimmers and boaters from other island....so it runs the entire spectrum. :)
