A Private Affair
If you’re on the lookout for the beach escape of your dreams, or downtime away from life’s stresses, renting a private island provides the perfect solution. After all, true relaxation and rejuvenation can only really be experienced when you and a select guest list of your choosing have been marooned. They’re the opportunity to escape the crowds: after all, private means privacy and, once you’ve docked, you have the luxury of exploring the island and its facilities at your leisure.
They’re perfect too for the lazy planner, with staff on-hand to facilitate every need and prepare every delicious meal. So whether you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate a birthday, buck’s or wedding party, or just want to get away from it all, a private island is the prefect setting for a truly exceptional stay.
