As a Vietnam vet, Cornell graduate, fly-fishing professional and good friend of Jack Hemingway (Papa’s son), Fred has lived a storied life. And in his latest chapter, he’s the owner and operator of Bird Island, a private island off the coast of Belize that you can rent on Airbnb. It’s the perfect place to live out your desert island kink since there’s miles of Caribbean Sea between you and anyone passing judgment. Check out the video above for a glimpse of Fred and your next tropical getaway. Assuming you can plan in advance — it’s booked through 2017.
