More often than not sequels don’t strike as much as the original idea but that doesn’t stand true for Richard Branson and his islands. Clearly, a man who has become an expert on islands after owning several like the Makepeace Island at Tewantin or the exclusive Kenyan camp Mahali Mzuri Sir Richard Branson is now coming up with his newest villa venture, Moskito Island. The place is in the neighboring area of Necker Island and was acquired in 2007. The gorgeous 125-acres of idyllic island land will allow guests to vacation like filthy rich pupils in an 11-room Branson Estate, Branson’s private home. That property will soon become available for rent for $25,000. In addition to the villa, this rent will include several recreational areas like a water sports center, a Beach House, an infinity pool and bar, tennis pavilion, and dining outlets.
There are 11 oceanfront bedrooms in three villas linked by raised wooden walkways that can house as many as 22 people. Guests can enjoy not just the extraordinary British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Chefs prepare meals in the villas or at the Beach House (equipped with a pizza oven), and staff organizes treasure hunts and beach Olympics for children of all ages. Branson said, “Necker Island is my home and favorite hideaway. I invite you to explore this idyllic island paradise for yourself and to be inspired by its beauty. I hope someday to be able to share it with you.”
