Calling all island daydreamers and daring developers! Has your life long dream been to own and transform your own Caribbean beach escape? Situated perfectly among the British Virgin Islands, a serene island haven of glimmering turquoise waters, soft white-sand beaches, and gently swaying palm trees is awaiting its next owners.
Once containing nothing but “scrub”, the suitable “Scrub Island” remained fairly untouched for hundreds of years. European explorer Christopher Columbus first discovered the island and used it as a stopping point while exploring the Americas nearly 500 years ago. However, legends of venturing pirates who would drop anchor here to scrub barnacles off their ships still remain one of the main name origins of this island.
Now, twenty years later Scrub Island is home to many modern-day amenities. Not only have the current owners provided power to the islands via undersea cables, but also a desolation plant large enough to service both islands. Even more impressive is the development of a luxury Marriott Autograph Collection resort, spa, and upscale marina, which offers a full-sized service area, barge ramp, and commercial docking area. You can also find various restaurants, bars, and additional accommodations all completely available to the next owners of “Grand Scrub”.
Actually comprised of two landmasses connected by a small isthmus, Scrub Island’s larger and less developed “Grand Scrub” is being offered in its entirety. Instead of developing a second island, the current owners have decided to sell the larger island offering roughly 170 acres of untouched island paradise. Explore the island’s nature trails, protected coves, and three pristine white-sand beaches with the available amenities of “Little Scrub” and discover the ultimate pride of ownership. With an ideal location near Terrance B Lettsome International Airport and just one mile away from the east end of Tortola, the largest of the British Virgin Islands, Scrub Island also offers an excellent home base for island-hopping throughout the Caribbean.
Developing one’s own island is undoubtedly a far-fetched dream for many and a marvelous reality for very few. Even if money isn’t a factor, the task of evolving such a substantial build can be daunting. Thanks to years of hard work by Scrub Island’s current owners, much of the literal groundwork has been laid, leaving a glorious foundation for the next owners of “Grand Scrub”.
