Airbnb wants to help you rent a private island this winter

While we’ve been treated to a very mild winter thus far, the blustery weather and constant threat of snow make this season bearable at best and miserable at worst, depending on what day you ask. You can skim travel books and create Pinterest boards of tropical getaways all you want, but Airbnb is upping the ante with private island homes at a discounted rate. Because why travel to an all-inclusive resort when you can have your own private island, right? Right.

As part of a current promotion, renters who book a private island or treehouse for $400 or more will receive a $100 discount on their stay. Logic follows that if you have the money to rent a private island, $100 probably won't matter too much, but it's still an incentive to get out there and live like royals. Here’s a look at six island rentals that caught our attention (in case anyone wants to throw in and make it happen). Nightly prices may change.
