Renting a Private Luxury Island

By in Private Islands 1 Comment

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own island? Well they say, if it floats, flies, or is surrounded by water, it’s better to rent than buy. Renting an island not only fulfills your deepest desires to enjoy your own private island oasis surrounded by warm tropical breezes and brilliant blue warm waters, but it allows you to do so without the hassles of owning. We checked out and we have to say, they offer an INCREDIBLE experience!

Not only is buying a private island expensive beyond belief, but owning one and the act of caring and maintaining one is, quite frankly, a huge pain and headache. After meeting thousands of mega-rich and wealthy clients from around the world, I can say that everyone I met who has owned an island said that they wish they just rented. It’s sort of like a timeshare. When you buy a timeshare, you’re stuck with that one location and always have to go back to it. You still have to pay the maintenance fees every year, but only get to enjoy it for one or two weeks out of the year. Staying at hotel rooms allows you to go wherever your little heart desires, whenever you want. There’s no restrictions. Renting an island offers the same benefit- flexibility. Because let’s face it, who doesn’t want flexibility? Buying a private island means having to go to the same island every single time. When you rent an island, you can change it up each time. Rent an Island in St. John’s USVI one time and the next you can rent an island in the gorgeous waters of Thailand. Also, do you have any clue how much maintenance is required to upkeep an island? That is, if you want it to remain in good shape. It’s like owning a house, time 100. You have added elements of the surrounding water coming from 360 degrees, which also means more wind and damage from flying debris. If you have an exorbitant amount of money to spend on island property caretakers, then I guess it’s not a big deal. But still, you will be stuck going to that same island and only that island because chances are you aren’t going to want to rent an island when you already own one.
