Ever dream of escaping to your own exotic island? Yeah, us too. While it's always seemed exactly that — a dream — Airbnb has made things much more attainable with a handful of private islands available to rent from their website. One, in particular, has completely taken our breath away.
Located in Belize and surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, you can rent this over-water bungalow, Casa Ventanas. As part of the exclusive private island resort of Cayo Espanto, this private hideaway is over 150 feet off the island for ultimate privacy. Inside is modern and chic with minimalist styling; think floor-to-ceiling windows framing tropical views and polished timber floors, alongside tech necessities such as wifi. There's even a glass underwater observation panel, so you can see the tropical sealife that swims under your feet. Outside on the wraparound deck, you can choose to soak up the sun or take a plunge off the extended pier.
This one-bedroom bungalow accommodates two, and at $2,038 USD per night, it includes three meals a day, beverages (excluding wine and champagne), snacks, and transportation to and from San Pedro. Additionally, you'll have full access to a sailboat, kayaks, and snorkel equipment. Casa Ventanas, here we come.
