SCRUB ISLAND, BVI – Mainsail Resort Marina & Spa, the first resort development to take place in the British Virgin Islands in more than 15 years, introduces a limited number of private estate lots on Scrub Island at introductory prices starting at $999,000.
With lots ranging from one-and-a-half to seven acres, The Estates at Scrub Island will consist of 39 hillside homes in a gated community, surrounded by pristine beaches kissed by Technicolor tides.
Redefining the Caribbean luxury home-ownership experience, The Estates at Scrub Island boast an efficient ownership structure, attractive tax benefits and competitive insurance rates while combining privacy with five-star resort amenities, as well as primary access to the Mainsail marina. Accommodating vessels up to 150 feet in length and providing slips for owners to rent daily or monthly, the centrally-located marina lies on the western shore of Scrub Island and provides a perfect departure point to the world-famous North Drop, a hot spot for world record blue marlin. In addition, the marina lends itself to easy access for exploring the more than 60 islands of the British Virgin Islands.
“The Estates at Scrub Island appeal to the escapist in everyone,” stated Joe Collier, president, Mainsail Hotels. “We have the unique opportunity to start from scratch – or in this case, Scrub – to create a place where privacy and comfort are ideally blended into the magnificent natural qualities of the island. We’re creating a destination for discerning island travelers who want to enjoy all the best of a world-class home including resort amenities, without the nuisance of a crowded destination.”
Wintertime buyers may determine what is important to them while selecting their ideal piece of land with a view of choice. If owners prefer immaculate views of sunrise or sunset, or a certain proximity to neighbors, the resort, beaches and marina, Mainsail has the ability to give initial buyers a prestigious choice. The resort will also provide management, housekeeping and inclusion in the resort’s rental program at the discretion of the owner.
Continuing in the tradition of the peaceful nature of the destination, Scrub Island will not exceed more than 200 residents or guests at any given time, even after full development. The primary form of transportation on Scrub Island will be golf carts, making the island virtually traffic free. Scrub Island is a short five-minute ferry ride from Beef Island, Tortola. Commercial airlines offer frequent flights from Puerto Rico and private aircraft can fly directly into Beef Island. Ferries depart from St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands for direct access to the BVI.
Opening in late Fall of 2007, Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands is the future home of The Estates at Scrub Island, as well as the unexpected and inspiring Mainsail Resort Marina & Spa — embracing guests with complete ocean view suites, villas and residences touting soothing shades, deep textures and hardwood floors.
The resort will offer five-star amenities including world-class spa, 60-slip marina, four exquisite restaurants and bars, amphitheatre built of natural stone and breathtaking astronomy observatory. Keeping with the intimate and fresh nature of the island, The Estates at Scrub Island offer 39 hillside lots spread over 170 acres surrounded by Technicolor tides, pristine reefs and unforgettable views.
