Rent your own off-the-grid Caribbean island on Airbnb

For R8,161 per night, you can rent Bird Island off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean - a whole island to relax and recharge on!



The listing comes courtesy of Airbnb, promising tenants a “stay on your own in a truly private island on a beautiful atoll, with excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and exploring—with all the comforts.” Adding that it is a perfect setting for either a romantic getaway for a couple, a family gathering/reunion or for a small group of friends.”



The spot, which is 20 minutes by boat from Placencia Village on the mainland, includes a private three-bedroom home that can accommodate up to six guests, a brand-new propane refrigerator and freezer, and a rainwater filtration system.

Although Bird Island is off the grid—power is generated through solar and wind—you don’t have to be cut off from the world if you don’t want to. The locale boasts a phone for local numbers, plus “good and reliable” WiFi.



Self-sufficiency is key, however. You’ll have to supply—or fish for—your own food. Snorkling or angling equipment is also strictly BYO.



“The central theme of Bird Island is a self-catering, Robinson Crusoe type of adventure, yet with all the comforts, where one could get to do their own thing in total privacy,” Airbnb says. 



“We offer Bird Island at an exceptional price for an experience best-suited for the adventurous who are totally self-sufficient.”
