A private island just for you

Have you dreamt of owning a private island where you can relax with your friends and family in utter luxury surrounded by pristine aqua blue waters with a yacht docked nearby for your personal use? It's no surprise that everyone does and few realise it.

If you have not been able to get that perfect island for yourself, book a private island for a day. Erika's Marine Services, a yacht agent and concierge in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, offers exclusive rental of Jamesby, an uninhabited island in the middle of the Tobago Cays Marine Park. Heather Grant, founder of Erika’s said, "Erika’s offers many concierge services, but one that is quite special, we think, is our ability to book an island exclusively for our yacht clients’ use. This sounds amazing, doesn’t it?"

So how much is the price for renting an island for a day?

"Well, it is amazing, but the cost is not what you might think. Most people assume mega bucks are required for the use of a private island, and most of the time they are correct, but in this instance, there is a small, uninhabited island in the middle of the Tobago Cays Marine Park that is available for hire through Erika’s for a single day, or longer if needed - and at a reasonable price. Depending on the time of year, a day’s rental can cost anything from US$2,000 to US$3,000."

Erika’s has been booking this particular spot for several years, with great success and excellent reviews from their clients. She explained, "Here’s the deal: The yacht sails to the Grenadines and the captain sells his guests on the idea of having an exclusive, remote private island to themselves for a day. Guests can have all their water toys, barbecue, shade structures, furniture, lounge chairs, yummy local fish or lobster, and even live music, if they wish."

Imagine all this surrounded by beauty that is absolutely stunning, yours for a day or even longer if one wishes, in quiet and solitude.

"We can pretty much guarantee they will like it - what’s not to like about a beautiful natural environment, complete with white sand beach, warm azure sea and sunny skies? Go swimming with the turtles, scuba dive, snorkel, or enjoy kite boarding lessons right there on the private beach."

The well trained team at Erika’s will organise everything on behalf of yacht crews and their clients.

Erika’s Marine Services is working with Yachting Pages Media Group, a specialist in providing products and services for the superyacht industry, to offer its services to crews and guests.
