Where better to quarantine than the Caribbean Sea?
Working from home in cloudy Manchester starting to get old? Problem solved. Because you can now hire out your very own private island in beautiful Belize, a Caribbean country bordering both Mexico and Guatemala.
You’re probably thinking ‘yeah sure, bet that’ll cost an arm and a leg’ right now, but you’d stand corrected – with an average night at Bird Island costing just £531 a night, and with space enough for six, that rings in at just £88.50 per person (for absolute luxury, may we add).
Located in the Caribbean Sea away from the mainland, the tropical island is left completely undisturbed for guests, so you can enjoy a bit of peace and quiet away from civilisation with just your chosen group of pals. Enjoy your very own patch of white sand, kick back on the fishing deck, take a dip in the warm blue sea, or even shake up a few cocktails behind your very own private bar before relaxing on the over-water swings and hammocks that have been newly installed for 2020.
The colourful island consists of four separate buildings, including the main house, an upstairs suite and two cabanas – all of which include bedrooms for guests to enjoy their own space with just the sound of the ocean accompanying them.
The owners of the island go above and beyond for their guests, too, offering to collect anyone who’s booked a stay from the local airport and even offering to take them food shopping on the way to help them get fully stocked up for the duration. And if that wasn’t enough already, they also run their own tour company – where you can take advantage of fishing, snorkelling and lobstering adventures.
The owners don’t plan on increasing prices for at least the next year, either, allowing guests to explore the isolated retreat at the same low price for months to come. There’s currently a four-night minimum stay in place for those who do wish to stay on Bird Island, but with the luxury of your very own ocean and bar to enjoy, we wouldn’t be contesting against an extended stay.
