If there is someone on God’s green earth who knows what it means to have your very own private island, then it’s Farhad Vladi, owner of Vladi Private Islands. It’s not dificult to guess what his company does. Yup, this man sells private islands for those of us who have enough money to afford one and if you can’t afford to buy one, Vladi will happily rent one to you. But, we are not here to talk about all of his business ventures, we are here to take a look at Vladi’s book titled The World of Private Islands which showcases some of the most beautiful islands and island resorts in the world, from Canadian lake isles to Pacific atolls.

Private island

An island does not have a house number. An island has a soul. – Farhad Vladi

Imagine owning a piece of land surrounded by nothing but a vast ocean, a place where you can truly be yourself and escape from every single complication of your hectic everyday life. Imagine owning your private island. That’s exactly what having one means; being free to exclude yourself from everything but with style and comfort.

The World of Private Islands will take you on a journey from breathtaking islands with rustic accommodations to more contemporary ones owned by some of the most famous people alive. Don’t be discouraged by the prices of these islands as even the less wealthy can find something affordable as there are islands which start off at $30.000 which sounds better than dishing out a couple of millions.

Vladi’s own words best describe what it means to have your island: “An island does not have a house number. An island has a soul.” And indeed it does. Who knows, maybe you will discover a new home for yourself while flipping through the pages of The World of Private Islands, so make sure you check it out.
