This Dream Caribbean Villa on Richard Branson's Newest Private Island Is An 'Aerie' Oasis of Serenity


In a picture-perfect island-top setting, this Balinese-inspired residential compound combines exceptional privacy with the luxury and comfort of resort-style living and entertaining. Three acres of tropical beauty surround an extraordinary open-pavilion home and three guest houses with 270-degree ocean, island and sunset views.


When Sir Richard Branson purchased 132-acre Moskito Island in 2007, he engaged architect Ken Kao to create a master plan. Today the private island features the Branson Estate, a beautifully appointed waterfront community area and six custom homes, including The Aerie, also designed by Ken Kao.


The Aerie’s main living area is a magnificent great room with walls of glass that open onto panoramic views, expansive decks, patios and verdant gardens and an inviting infinity-edge pool with a swim-up bar. This pavilion offers idyllic indoor and outdoor settings for generous lounging, dining and recreation. Just beyond the great room is the culinary heart of the home: a state-of-the-art kitchen equally suited to intimate meals and grand-scale entertaining.


Each of the home’s bedrooms is a study in tranquility, with sensational views, private terraces and inspired design and construction. On the main level, there are three spacious bedroom suites, including a bunk room, while the upper floor is home to the palatial primary suite and lavish guest suite. There are also two staff bedrooms on site. Stone pathways meander through manicured tropical gardens to reach two hilltop guest suites and the hilltop guest house where visitors will enjoy every comfort and amenity of this exceptional island residence.
