Check Out the Most Expensive Private Island Rental: Musha Cay

At least once you might have wondered: ‘Which is the most expensive island rental?’ We have your answer!

You can have the world’s highest-priced watch, car, yacht or house, but nothing shows greater wealth than owning an island. You know many celebrities in this position.

The good news is that you too can feel like one of them by renting the whole piece of land surrounded on all sides by the sea.

And we’ll present the costliest island to rent so let’s get straight to business!

Musha Cay is a privately owned island located in the southern Bahamas, in the Exuma Chain.
With more than 150 acres of unspoiled tropical environment and white sugar-sand beaches, this is an isle of beauty. It is also surrounded by 3 smaller islands and the rest is only blue water as the eyes can see.

Who owns Musha Cay?

Thoughts may come through your mind that is more likely to be someone like soccer player David Beckham, Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but this private resort is owned by the American illusionist and the most commercially successful magician in history, David Copperfield.

The 58-year-old magician purchased Musha Cay in 2006 for $56 million. Since then the island became a vacation spot for stars like Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates. Google co-founder Sergey Brin even got married on Musha Cay in 2007.

Who is the architect ?

Architect Howard Holtzman made a Caribbean design for Musha Cay by combining the Bahamian colonial-style with traditional isle materials. And what a fine job he did!

What is now a luxurious, private resort is the work of 175 full time workers and lots of money. The transformation of the most expensive private island to rent was completed in 6 years.
