International luxury real estate shoppers can now search by "Private Island" and "Villa" on christiesrealestate.com. This brings a new total of 11 property types and 16 lifestyle search options now available on the site.
Believe it or not, we have found that one of the leading property searches in the Caribbean luxury real estate market is for "Private Islands", and with such amazing islands as Parrot Cay,Ambergris Cay,Dellis Cay,Pine Cay, and West Caicos, the Turks and Caicos has its fair share of private Islands and luxury Villas.
If you have been "labouring" under the impression that our economy is bad right now. Not so! the WSJournal points out that the super high-end real estate market, at least, is doing just fine, which is a relief. There's never been a better time to purchase a luxurious private island that could hypothetically be your very own private domain! Just ask Johnny Depp.
Perhaps the best-known private-island compound is magician David Copperfield's 700-acre resort Musha Cay, which is spread across 11 islands... Mr. Copperfield describes it as a place where he can "create magic in three dimensions" and where a stay can include an optional, interactive treasure hunt where he says guests are immersed in a "living movie." (Dozens of actors and illusionists are imported to play pirates.) Recent additions to the resort include trained macaws that pick up Musha Cay's refuse and a "secret village," opening soon, where visitors can interact with tame monkeys.
The good thing is that you don't have to buy an entire island to get the benefits of the private island lifestyle. Parrot Cay, one of the Turks and Caicos Islands most beautiful islands assures a Paparazzi free retreat for the rich and famous. Many very well known "A-List" stars actually own properties on Parrot Cay, with many of the worlds "Who's Who" traveling to the island for well deserved vacations away from prying eyes and superior service.
Katherine and I spend a great deal of our time on all the private islands in the TCI, both for business and pleasure.. In fact, Katherine and I were married at Keith Richards House on Parrot Cay, walking down the aisle (beach) to the Rolling Stones "Sympathy for the Devil", an awesome experiance.
Private Island life is a magical experience and one we recommend to anyone looking for that perfect piece of paradise.
