St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Eastern Caribbean
Mustique has an exotic story. In 1958, it was purchased by a British Lord, Colin Tennant, who was close to the royal family. A select few were invited to build vacation homes on the Island and Princess Margaret was one of the first to do so. Other notables followed, including celebrities like Mick Jagger and Tommy Hilfiger. Mustique is now home to about 100 extraordinary, privately owned villas, of which 85 are available for weekly rental. From two to nine bedrooms in size, they are rented with the services of their permanent staffs and the house vehicles.
- 1400-acre private island
- Fully staffed villas
- Nine beaches
- Water sports center and spa
Location and Surroundings:
Mustique is situated in the St. Vincent & Grenadine Islands, 110 miles west of Barbados (approximately 45 minutes flight time). There are regularly scheduled as well as charter flights from both Barbados and St. Lucia. The Island is 1400 acres of lush hills and beaches large and small, and is home to only two small hotels — the chic Cotton House Hotel and the Firefly.
Available for rental are 85 extraordinary designer villas ranging from two to nine bedrooms. Each villa is privately owned and its style reflects the unique taste of its owner. Some are beachfront, and many are scattered thoughtfully about the island’s lush hills and enjoy fabulous views of the sea and neighboring islands. All have private pools, some more than one. The styles of the villas range from classic Caribbean to Japanese, Balinese, Italian and English country. Each villa is fully staffed by its owner and includes a minimum of cook, maid and gardener. Each rental includes the use of the owner’s jeep-like vehicle.
