It’s National Plan A Vacation Day and we’ve found the perfect vacation spot and it won’t even break the bank. How about renting your own private island?


Yes, you can actually rent your own private island for around $100 a night at certain times of the year. This place is located in Swansboro, NC and it is beautiful. It’s a Tiny House Cabin located on a 4 acre private island.

The property has even been featured on HGTV Island Hunters. Here’s how it’s described on Airbnb;

Swansboro named to “America’s 25 Coolest Cities to Visit in 2021” Matador Network

No boat? No problem. We have a licensed captain who will drive you to and from the island included in your reservation. This is a glamping experience. Prepare for your trip as you would for a tent camping expedition. However, we have many comforts, including a generator, non-potable water barrel, AIR CONDITIONING, infrared fireplace, charcoal grill, propane cooktop and even a hot water shower!

This is a pack-in/pack-out location. Anything you bring with you must be removed from the island. Please respect the marine environment.

The Tiny House Cabin is actually big enough to accommodate six people, so if you were staying a full week, you’d only pay $121 per person for a private island vacation.

Some of the other features include;

Completely private with 360 degrees of shoreline
40′ private dock
4 kayaks
1 double bed
1 Double Bed in Loft
Charcoal barbecue
