These Affordable Islands For Rent Are Your Next Vacation Destinations





Thinking of where to go on your next vacation? Why don’t you ditch the usual staycation at a hotel or a trip to the beach and instead rent a whole island just to yourself.

You can’t exactly really rent the whole island but for $150 a night, you can rent a room at the only house on the island so that pretty much counts for exclusivity. The house has 3 rooms, all for rent and the largest is called the Blue Room. Spend time relaxing at the dock or bond with your special someone near the fireplace as you drink champagne. There’s a five-night minimum stay, with a price of $150 a night.
