We’ve compiled the ultimate list of Belize private island rentals from Airbnb and Vrbo, including some overwater bungalows, Belize island resorts with a full staff, and even a few surprisingly affordable options! Ready to feel the sun on your face and the sand in your toes? Then dive right in to our list of 10 Belize private island rentals to die for. Find your private island Belize paradise!


If you want to see the location of all the islands on a map, then check out the map view for all our Belize private island rentals! Most of these islands lie far south of Belize City, somewhere  between Placencia/ Coco Plum Island area and the Belize Barrier Reef (the world’s second longest barrier reef system!) Sure you should take a trip to see some Mayan Ruins and check out the cave tubing tours, but once you get tired of the crowds on San Pedro, you’ll be longing for an island all to yourself. Here’s where to find it:

If you’re looking for a cheap private island rental in Belize, Ranguana Caye is hard to beat. Currently listing at roughly $100 per night per cabana, it’s a pretty good value. The catch is, there are actually 3 cabanas on this island so you might not have the whole place to yourself. Unless you and your party can rent all three, which would still be a great deal! (Keep in mind, this rate doesn’t include boat transfers from the mainland which cost $75 per person each way.) All in all, this island comes in as a very affordable Belize private island resort.
