Your Own Private Island—For Just $395 A Night

As a Vietnam vet, Cornell graduate, fly-fishing professional and good friend of Jack Hemingway (Papa’s son), Fred Arbona has lived a storied life. And in his latest chapter, he’s the owner and operator of Bird Island, a private island off the coast of Belize that you can rent on Airbnb and VRBO. It’s the perfect place to live out your desert-island kink since there’s miles of Caribbean Sea between you and anyone passing judgment. Check out the video above for a glimpse of Fred and your next tropical getaway. Assuming you can plan in advance — it’s booked through 2017.
