Scrolling through Airbnb’s holiday hot spots used to be all about finding the best ‘entire home/flat’ for rent. We dreamed of Beyonce’s lavish Super Bowl set-up, and bemoaned any sharing of facilities that threatened the exclusivity of our trip.

But not anymore. Now there are entire islands up for grabs.

Yes, we’re talking about entire tropical islands drenched in sunshine and edged with palm trees, which you can rent for the entirety of your stay. No sharing - unless you’re bringing your squad to split the cost, of course - necessary.

From the balmy climes of Belize and Costa Rica to off-the-grid islands dotted around the coast of Norway or Canada, a VIP style island escape can now cost you from as little as £100 per night.

So to celebrate this incredibly joyous news, we’ve rounded up a few our favourite Airbnb islands below. All of them ready to be booked up by us regular folk…
