Rent an Island: Top 10 private rental islands

Having an island all to yourself and your loved ones seems like something either for the extremely rich or what happens to people at the beginning of a disaster movie. But the truth is that you can actually rent an island in order to have it all to yourself. Here are the best private island rentals out there right now. You may be surprised to find that they are cheaper to rent than a suite in a luxury hotel.
