3. Pine Isle, Maine, USA: sleeps 2 for £108 per night
A rustic lake house surrounded by pine trees, this property is a short boat ride away from the shore of Winthrop, but completely private.
4. L'llot, Roches Noires, Mauritius: sleeps 8 for £304 per night
Hello, little slice of heaven. L'llot is like something out of a film, with bedroom doors that open up onto the sand, and loads of outside areas that'll have you lounging about in the sun all day, wondering if you ever have to go home.
5. Colleton River Plantation, South Carolina: sleeps 4 for £203 per night
Located on a 150 acre private island within the gates of Colleton River Plantation, this cottage has 'American dream' written all over it. It's as dreamy inside as it is outside, too.
6. The Ark, Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia: sleeps 16 for £325 per night
Surrounded by palm trees and a sandy white beach, The Ark offers maximum privacy in an unforgettable paradise. There's also access to two boats, so you can explore the surrounding area, and an actual cook, who will whip you up some Caribbean cuisine. Yum.
7. East Sister Rock Island, Florida Keys: sleeps 6 for £701 per night
Built on a coral reef, this is any diving enthusiasts dream - and it even comes with a helicopter pad, if you fancy arriving by chopper.
8. Potato Island, Ottowa, Canada
Reached by a 10 minute canoe ride, you'll feel well and truly at one with the wilderness in this old cottage. Braid your hair and prance about the woods pretending to be Katniss Everdeen, if you like - nobody will see you.
9. Brother Island, El Nido, Philippines: sleeps 10 for £309 per night
The rooms look pretty basic, yes, but the location - pristine white sandy beaches, and a rainforest you can explore - more than make up for that.
