Top Private Island Vacation Rentals In The Caribbean
Your group will feel like you have the island all to yourself, that means the staff will be there to cater to your needs, you’ll have lots of space and privacy, and most times you’ll hardly see another guest.
All Caribbean private islands have superior service, luxurious accommodations and spectacular settings. However, that's where the similarity ends. Below are just a few of the many wonderful luxury island resorts from which to choose:
Located in the British Virgin Islands, this 74-acre Caribbean oasis is owned by British business tycoon, Richard Branson. Necker Island's 11-room great house and four luxurious bungalows provide sleeping accommodations for up to 30 guests. Facilities include two private beaches, two swimming pools, a four-person Jacuzzi, three fully-stocked bars and multiple dining areas, including a floating sushi bar. If you have a larger group, guests can be accommodated at villas on nearby Moskito Island – the sister island to Necker.
Jumby Bay Island
Located off the coast of Antigua, Jumby Bay features elegant colonial-style villas for larger groups, as well as private cottages for couples. Amenities at this luxurious private island resort include an infinity pool, three dining areas, a gym, a lighted tennis court, a private beach and a croquet court.
Oil Nut Bay

Calivigny Island, a 80-acre private island resort in the Grenadine Islands, just off the coast of Grenada, is a luxurious oasis for up to 40 guests. The island offers two villas and three beach houses. In addition to sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea, Calivigny Island has three beaches, a state-of-the-art gym, a billiards room, two dining areas and a bar, a tennis court and a freshwater swimming pool with a swim-up bar.
Overlooking its own picturesque, 55-slip marina, Scrub Island, in the British Virgin Islands, boasts opulent private villas with plunge pools, overlooking spectacular turquoise waters and nearby islands. There are also three restaurants and three private beaches, including honeymoon beach, a secluded strip of sand that's only accessible via kayak.
Located off of the northeast coast of Tortola, 850-acre Guana Island features a handful of private villas, each offering a perfect place to spend a secluded (first or second) private island honeymoon. The island has seven beaches, a swimming pool, a restaurant, tennis courts and a bar. The villas come with a dune buggy to help you get around the island.
This private island in the BVI, just off the shores of Virgin Gorda, offers complete privacy and enjoyment for up to 12 people at a time. With three villas, a dining area, private beach and loads of water sports gear, your group will have a memorable vacation experience on Eustatia Island.
The Top Private Islands In The Bahamas
The private islands in the Bahamas offer tropical beauty and a relaxed atmosphere, just a short flight away from Miami. WIMCO’s private island portfolio includes two luxurious private island resorts on this island nation: Musha Cay and Kamalame Cay. Because of their proximity to the US, it doesn’t take long to get to these island paradises, making them perfect private island getaways.
Musha Cay, in the southern Bahamas, is a secluded and private spot, ideal for multi-generational bucket list luxury island vacations, weddings and romantic private island getaways for couples. The island features a 10,000-square-foot manor house and five private villas, which can accommodate up to 24 guests.
Imagine waking up in a romantic four-poster British-colonial-style bed with a view of the Atlantic Ocean outside your balcony window. How special your wedding would be with all of your best friends and family together on this special private island. In addition to the spectacular rooms and suites, Musha Cay offers multiple dining areas, several beaches, a gym, a freshwater swimming pool and a unique, outdoor theater.
Kamalame Cay, just off Andros Great Barrier Reef in the Bahamas, is a great choice for a private island vacation for two. It offers a small number of casually-elegant beachfront villas, scattered around the 96-acre property. One of the appeals of this luxurious private Bahamas island is its "unplugged" experience, with no televisions and electronics in the guest suites.
This is the place to unwind and enjoy the lush tropical gardens and uncrowded, white sand beaches. Other amenities on Kamalame Cay include tennis courts, a freshwater swimming pool and an overwater spa.
