Private Islands & Houses

Bespoke luxury travel to private islands and houses around the world.

Looking for your own private place to escape to? Look no further. We can source any size of private house or villa or your own private island!

Featured here are a range of unusual experiences, some of the islands can be hired in their entirety, on others we can book individual rooms but the island itself only holds a small number of people. There are several private islands in the Seychelles which operate as private hotels with a selection of rooms and conservation protection on the island.

Many options in the Caribbean offer your own villa or island staff and if you are looking for somewhere with it’s own private beach or relaxing pool we can find that for you too! The Bahamas, in particular The Exumas offer a variety of private islands such as Fowl Cay or Musha Cay. Five minutes by boat from Grenada is one of the most idyllic private islands in the Caribbean – Calivigny, with 80 acres of lush forest and sandy beaches. Necker Island in the British Virgin Isles is Sir Richard Bransons luxury private hideaway.

There are a wide range of huge private houses and villas around Europe, particularly in France – if you would like a stately home, villa or venue for a family gathering or special event this can easily be catered for.

In Africa, there are many safari houses which are fabulous for families or groups of friends, where you can experience the adventure of the bush, surrounded by wildlife but with your own private house, pool, chefs and guides. Mozambique offers a range of stunning private islands in the Indian Ocean, including Azura on Benguerra, Azura Quilalea and Vamizi. In South Africa, Leobo Observatory is a stunning ‘James Bond’ style exclusive house. In the Western Cape many of the wine farms have private farmhouses or exclusive use cottages perfect for wedding venues or private family holidays such as Bartholomeus Klip. 

In South East Asia there are many private islands and villas offering luxury accommodation in tropical settings, often with world class spa treatments too. In Cambodia you will find Song Saa – two pristine islands in the untouched Koh Rong Archipelago – The Song Saa Private Island is as seductive as the name implies. Intimate and luxurious, blending in with nature. The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve that has been established to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life including dugongs, seahorses and exotic species of tropical fish.

In Australasia and the South Pacific are a range of exotic private islands … Vanatu is particularly special. Ratua Island is a wild, magical place with authentic people who offer a simple and warm reception in a naturally beautiful environment. In Fiji is the 13 acre private Dolphin Island. 

We can also book all your flights (private jets if needed), transfers and other travel services, so your private holiday experience will be seamless … all you need to do is pack a bag and go!

Service from Travel with Jules was first class! You guys were great and helpful and patient…. All very good on the organisation side of things. The chef at the villa produced lovely food and the weather was great. The couple of trips into Rome itself went really well, the guide was a real star! The swimming pool at the villa was lovely and it was nice that they kept it open for us.

Excellent correspondence & local knowledge prior to travel was very useful, Julie and her team were excellent throughout the booking process and whilst we were away. We loved the villa, the scale of how large the villa was didn't come across on the website pages so to see it in front of us was breathtaking! Thank you for a lovely holiday x

Julie managed to find us the most wonderful villa on the gorgeous island of Lefkas (which we had never heard of!) that we would never have known about going through the normal route of booking a holiday ourselves. Everything worked like clockwork from the flights to the hire car pick up and to being met at the Villa by the owner himself.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
