If you’re looking for some last-minute plans for Valentine’s Day that will really impress your date, why not go big? Like, really, really big.

Instead of going for the basic roses and chocolates, how about booking a stay at a one-of-a-kind private island located just off the coast of Belize?

According to HomeAway, this luxurious and seriously private island is still available for the second week of February. No people, no neighbors, just you and your honey.

While it may seem like a rather remote place to travel to for the Hallmark holiday, the island home, known as Gladden Island, is actually just a four-hour flight from Miami.

Once there, you’ll be able to feast your eyes on the stunning turquoise lagoons surrounding the island. Moreover, the island happens to sit directly on the edge of the most beautiful section of the Belize Barrier Reef, which is the second largest reef in the world. There, you could even spot whale sharks as they swim by on their yearly migration.

On the island sits just one private sanctuary, built to house just one couple, where you’ll receive world-class, all-inclusive services.

And really, for the most part you’ll be totally alone as the island’s staff resides on a smaller island just behind Gladden. But they can be there in a moment’s notice to attend to your every need.

On the island you will also dine on local specialties prepared by guest chefs from celebrated kitchens around the world. You can even book a spa treatment or charter a boat through the island’s personal concierge.

All this and more can be yours for just $3,073 a night. But you better act fast before someone more romantic swoops in to book it first.

Of course, if this place is already booked, you could just go nuts and buy this private Island in Scotland that’s on sale for the surprisingly reasonable price of $325,000.
