Celebs visiting resorts

Caribbean: Rent a Rolling Stone’s Private Island Villa

They’re spectacular holiday homes hidden away amid the lush grounds of renowned private island resorts – and these deluxe rentals are made all the more glamorous due to their Rolling Stone owners.

Rock Out at Mick Jagger’s Mustique Island Villa

There’s nothing like a luxurious private island holiday to make you feel like a rock star, and in the case of a certain villa on Mustique, the favoured tropical destination of the rich, famous and royal, you can truly walk in the footsteps of a music legend. Not only that, but you can even sleep in his bed! Mick Jagger has been one of the island’s most hallowed residents since it the sleepy St. Vincent and the Grenadines first became a celebrity hotspot in the 1970’s, and plenty of other notable musicians – including Bryan Adams, Shania Twain, and most famously, Jagger’s contemporary David Bowie – have also bought into the Mustique dream.

A vast, Japanese-style villa spread out over six pavilions, Jagger’s home on the island would suit even the most discriminating tastes. Beautifully decorated and with ample space (and privacy) for the whole family, guests have raved about the relaxation afforded by the home’s large outdoor pool, peaceful koi ponds, and breezy alfresco dining areas. There is no shortage of fun activities, as the home has a large game room, tennis court, and a long stretch of perfect sandy beach. Perhaps the greatest advantage to Stargroves, however, is its location: within walking distance of Mustique’s social hotspot, The Cotton House.

Cost: Starting at approximately US $15,000 per week (low season)

Gimme Shelter in Keith Richard’s Parrot Cay Pad

When it comes to elite spots for celebrity holiday homes, one private island gives Mustique a run for its money: Parrot Cay. Found in the tranquil Turks and Caicos, this 1,000-acre isle boasts an impressive number of prominent villa owners, including Bruce Willis, Donna Karan, and Christie Brinkley, and with an ever-growing roster of famous guests, it would almost be easier to list the celebrities who haven’t yet visited! The owner of a three-bedroom villa called Rocky Point, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards brings a little rock-and-roll to this peaceful island.

Located on a secluded cape on the leeward side of Parrot Cay, Richard’s Rocky Point villa rental comes with two acres of beachfront and a gorgeous infinity pool. Decorated in a sleek, contemporary Caribbean style, the stunning ocean and tropical garden views take center stage with the home’s abundant floor-to-ceiling windows. The T&C’s perfect balmy climate makes it easy to live both indoors and out, and the ample exterior spaces are perfect for catching an evening breeze. Greeted with a bottle of champagne and with full butler service available, it would be impossible not to feel like a celebrity at Rocky Point.

Cost: Starting at US $5,400 per night, or $37,800 a week
