A new luxury destination is now on the map in the British Virgin Islands, the highly anticipated Moskito Island, after more than 14 years in the making. Moskito is one of the most exclusive private islands in the Caribbean, and is now home to The Point Estate and The Oasis Estate, joining the existing 11-bedroom Branson Estate, all under the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio.
Set across 125 acres and across from Necker Island, coastal living is brought to life through unparalleled ocean views and unmatched barefoot luxury. Beginning Oct. 1, The Point Estate and The Oasis Estate will become available for exclusive buyouts. Virgin Limited Edition is Sir Richard Branson’s global collection of eight unique retreats and luxury hotels.
The nine-room Oasis Estate, perched on the highest point of Moskito Island, boasts four stories, multiple bars, a billiards and movie room, rooftop deck, natural light, a wraparound master pool and an 812-square-foot master guestroom. At the eight-bedroom Point Estate, find an expansive communal area, an infinity-edge pool, an open-air seaside dining pavilion, an eight-bunk children’s room, two master bedrooms and spacious decking.
“Moskito Island is the newest jewel of the Caribbean; a truly one-of-a-kind escape where visitors can enjoy the luxuries of the most stunning unspoiled surroundings, whilst having the convenience and luxury of a beautiful private home to serve as the centre of it,” said Jon Brown, CEO, Virgin Limited Edition. “Together with the island homeowners, we wanted to create something exceptionally unique and offer a rental programme unlike any other hospitality experience in the Caribbean, so we are incredibly excited to share this with the world.
“When Richard purchased the island in 2007, he was able to draw inspiration from his beloved Necker Island and instill some of the incredible designs and qualities that have made it the success it is today. But what makes Moskito Island so wonderfully different is its personality and charm — a result of not only Richard’s vision for the island, but a fusion of other like-minded homeowners, their ideas, and unique vision for the island too. Those visiting will now be able to enjoy the privacy and glamour of a private island with the choice of some of the very best rental estates in the world, each with their own individual style and offering.”
