Moskito Island, in the British Virgin Islands, is said to be one of the most exclusive, private islands in the Caribbean and ‘a secluded playground’ for those with billions in their banks.
Moskito Island, in the British Virgin Islands, has all the trappings of exclusivity, privacy, and seclusion that makes the perfect playground for those who can afford it. Part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio and more than 14 years in the making, it is home to privately owned villa estates, all brought together by first-class communal recreational amenities, two brand-new estates: The Point Estate and The Oasis Estate are the latest additions joining the existing 11-bedroom Branson Estate on the Island.
Sprawled across 125 acres, sitting across from its famous sister island Necker, Moskito Island brings a one-of-a-kind hospitality experience to the Caribbean. It is where the best of coastal living is brought to life through unparalleled ocean views and unmatched barefoot luxury, complemented by the stunning architectural design of each individual estate.
THE OASIS ESTATE
Perched on the highest point of Moskito Island, you’ll find the expansive nine-roomed Oasis Estate. Offering the very best of contemporary living, The Oasis Estate exudes a uniquely chic aesthetic, with sleek, modern design and broad sweeping gestures. The ultimate entertaining abode, the four-story main house is positioned on top of the hill, and seamlessly utilises the natural landforms, with stunning transparent split-level terraces that emerge from the central core of the estate. Featuring multiple lounges – including a swim-up pool lounge – an expansive billiards and movie room, and rooftop deck that boasts unobstructed 360-degree views of the surrounding territory, the estate provides the perfect balance of fun, privacy, and relaxation to cater for guests’ every need. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors throughout the entire house provide an abundance of natural light, all opening fully to allow for harmonic indoor-outdoor living, while a flat grass-filled rooftop adds a unique urban design element. The crown jewel of the estate is the 812 sq. ft. master guestroom, featuring an open-plan bedroom and living area that seamlessly transitions onto an extensive 180-degree decking and entertaining area, offering some of the best views on the estate.
THE POINT ESTATE
The eight-bedroom Point Estate is nestled cliffside, overlooking the island’s stunning Manchioneel Beach and neighbouring Virgin Gorda. Drawing design inspiration from the homeowners’ travels across the world, The Point Estate is built up the cliff offering free-standing accommodation and one main entertaining hub house. The expansive communal area of the main house brings the estate together as a dining and entertainment space, with contemporary kitchen and bar and huge infinity edge pool offering 180-degree views of the surrounding turquoise waters. A unique open-air seaside dining pavilion is impressively built right at the cliff edge and offers arguably the best viewpoint of the dramatic BVI sunsets than any other spot on the island. Guests staying at The Point Estate have exclusive, direct stair access to Manchioneel Beach – Moskito Island’s primary beach – complete with a dining pavilion, and other guest facilities. With eight bedrooms, including a playful eight-bunk children’s room in the main house, the estate comfortably sleeps up to 22 guests and is an ideal family destination. The estate has two master bedrooms; Hillside Master, that overlooks the entire estate, and Seaside Master, a quiet cove at the bottom of the estate, boasting sensational water views.
THE BRANSON ESTATE
The enviable Branson Estate, designed, and owned by the Branson Family, was the first to open in 2020. Set in an idyllic location – next door to the island’s communal recreational facilities – The Branson Estate was the very first estate to be built on Moskito Island with three beautiful villas connected by elevated wooden walkways, including the main residence, Headland House, which is home to the estate’s main master living, dining and entertaining areas, master suite and two guest rooms. The four-bedroomed Beach Villa is a seaside oasis, with its own private infinity pool and living areas and adjacent, lies the four-bedroomed Mangrove Villa, nestled in the mangroves with striking views of the neighbouring islands. In true barefoot luxury style, The Branson Estate is home to beautiful seaside dining and play areas that seamlessly blend indoor-outdoor living for a relaxing, private vacation.
