Daily Daydream: We Heart This Island

A heart-shaped island, optimistically named Makepeace, sounds fairy-tale like, but it really exists! Owned by two rich titans, Richard Branson and Virgin Blue co-founder Brett Godfrey, this private island has now been opened to the public. The very rich public, that is!

You won't feel like a castaway on this island, though— there's a giant lagoon pool, tennis court, spa, theater, bar, sculptures, and many other mainland comforts to keep you entertained. Bored watching nature? The garden area can be converted to an outdoor cinema for your viewing pleasure. Dine on world-class menu tastings or take a picnic down to your private beach.

Best of all, the island is only rented out to one group at a time, so you won't have to share your piece of paradise with any other tourists.

Where is it? Eastern Australia. Fly to Brisbane (check prices) and then drive to Noosa Marina to pick up a private boat to the island.

Where to Stay? Choose from the Bali House or the Villas.

What Else Should I Know? Rates to stay here start around $8,000 per day.

Who's it For? The rich and their friends (and daydreamers like us).
