The next SPACE: Moskito Island
Situated on 125 acres of paradise, surrounded by turquoise Caribbean waters, The Branson Estate on Moskito Island is the perfect place to find some SPACE and completely reset. The Branson Estate is a three villa, 11 bedroom complex that offers a haven of peace and serenity. Complementing Moskito Island’s beauty is the weather, which is always warm and sunny (averaging between 28-35 degrees celcius) with a refreshing sea breeze.

Perched on an outcrop at the north-east tip of Moskito Island is Headland House, the heart of the Branson Estate. This impressive villa is arranged with three bedrooms and living space on the ground floor leading up to the Great Room on the upper floor.
The most striking feature of the ground floor at Headland House is the wrap around infinity pool that meanders from just left of the main entrance around to the Master Suite. You can quite literally step out of bed in this room and straight into the pool!
This cluster of houses was inspired by Holly Branson and has an enviable sheltered position just above a sandy beach with views out to sea and up to Headland House. The elevated rooms are set back from the water and connected by a raised wooden walkway that also leads across to neighbouring Mangrove Villa.
This villa was inspired by Sam Branson, and all guest rooms face east towards Necker Island and to the island of Virgin Gorda. Nestled in amongst the mangrove trees, all rooms are elevated and connected both to Headland House and to the neighbouring Beach Villa by wooden walkways. The rich wood interiors make for a cosy feel with Balinese style objects and carvings throughout.
How to get there
Moskito Island is situated in the British Virgin Islands. The closest international airport is on Tortola (Beef Island – airport code EIS) which is a 35-minute flight from San Juan and a 1 hour 20 minute flight from Antigua. It is possible to fly to the British Virgin Islands via many parts of the Caribbean, with the most popular routes being via San Juan, Antigua and St. Thomas. Private jets can land at Beef Island and at the airport in St. Thomas (STT).
There is a helipad on Moskito Island for a very quick connection, however please note that helicopter flights are not possible at night in the BVI. By private launch Moskito Island is approximately 30 minutes from Tortola and 10 minutes from Virgin Gorda where there is another smaller airport, however flights to this airport are limited and the runway is not paved.
Please note all airport transfers by private boat to and from Tortola (Beef Island) and Virgin Gorda are provided as part of the SPACE package.
