When traveling with the whole family in tow, many vacationers prefer to rent luxury villas that can accommodate the whole clan comfortably. While having a scenic manor to yourselves may seem like a dream come true, it can't compare to the peace and solitude that comes with having an entire island to yourself. If you are looking for the ultimate getaway experience where you and the family can avoid the crowds, a luxury villa rental in Necker Island is exactly what you're looking for.
A private resort owned exclusively by noted entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, Necker Island is a small island located just north of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). As a private resort, the villa on Necker Island is a spacious mansion, boasting 14 bedrooms and baths, capable of comfortably accommodating up to 28 people when operating at full capacity.
The structure itself is a breezy, open-air home designed in line with traditional Balinese architecture. Surrounding the main home is a lush, tropical jungle that provides excellent walking spaces and epic coastlines that rival the finest in the region. While parts of the coastline are considered Crown land under the law of the BVI, the resort staff is fairly strict on where ordinary members of the public can and cannot stay on the shore, ensuring a private experience for all.
This seclusion provides unfettered relaxation, and with the wealth of services and amenities afforded by the roughly 60-person staff that serves the island, you won't miss the civilized world at all. The resort boasts a gourmet kitchen headed by Chef Lee Cowie and provides celebrated regional dishes like coconut tempura shrimp and Sambuca soufflé.
There is also a full gym, as well as tennis courts for the active traveler, and sailing, scuba diving, fishing and wind surfing are all available off the island's coast. Of course, if you'd prefer to simply lounge around your Caribbean villa, there is also a scenic swimming pool featuring freshwater cascades and a whirlpool tub perfect for melting stress away.
With it's fantastic amenities, beautiful setting and reclusive appeal, it should come as no surprise that the resort has hosted many big names over the years. Some celebrities that have frequented Necker Island in the past include the late Princess Diana, fashion model Kate Moss, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and - of course - Sir Richard Branson himself.
