Whether you are a solo traveler looking for peace, a couple looking for time away, friends who want some down time, family looking for a nice vacation, you may want to stay at a small island and live life kicking your feet in the sand and riding the waves.

Unfortunately, renting your own private island is very expensive -- it's something only the rich and the famous can afford. But then again, maybe you don't know about the private island in Costa Rica that can be yours for only $160 a night (minimum stay three nights).

The Daily Mail noted that the Tropical Island Cove in Golfito, Puntarenas, Costa Rica comes with its own beach, three species of monkeys, other species of birds and animals, and a path to a jungle. It even has an open-air Rancho for those who want to sleep under the stars.

It guarantees total privacy, but for those who want to have a guide, assistant, or someone to help them with boat rides, these services are also available. The island has a few basic necessities, but for those who want to make their own food, a pizza oven is also available.

The owner, who listed the property on Air BNB, said that the property sits on 25 acres of rainforest and a quarter mile of beach. Hammocks are also available for rest and relaxation.

To get to the island, one can fly from San Jose to Golfito. The property on Golfo Dulce is one of the three tropical fjords in the world and is home to biologically diverse species.

Guests will then be picked up from the Golfo by boat by the staff of the island. There are 4 staff members to cater to guests' needs.

To book the island, guests can access the host's Air BnB page. Once the booking is confirmed, arrangements will be made for transportation. Doing your own groceries is highly recommended, though, as there are no malls to get amenities in case you need them. However, extra boat transfers can be arranged.

Because the island is protected, the host asks for guests to be respectful of the environment and the property. Smoking is not allowed also not allowed on the property.

Summer is only a few months away, so better start saving up for the luxury feels that only very few can afford to have. Costa Rica is full of beautiful and diverse ecology, so there is a lot to explore. More than just the private island, check out the flora and fauna of the area -- who knows what treasure you may find.
