Branson’s Moskito Island is available to hire for the first time

Three thatched-roofed multi-bedroomed villas in the British Virgin Islands

While Necker Island has long been Richard Branson’s hideaway-for-hire in the British Virgin Islands, Branson himself favoured his strictly-for-family redoubt Moskito Island (; from $47,300), set – like Necker – off the north shore of Virgin Gorda. This summer, the retreat, with three thatch-roofed, multibedroom villas, each with its own living, dining and outdoor entertainment spaces, is, for the first time, available for takeover. Think swathes of whitewash and wicker, a so-fine-it-squeaks sand beach, and a crack team to attend to all needs, from paddleboard lessons to gluten-free menus.
