It’s the ultimate in Caribbean luxury: arriving by private jet. And some islands attract private jets more than others.

And a new report from XOJET, a leading private aviation services company, sheds light on the preferences of the Caribbean’s ultra-luxe travelers.

XOJET provided data on the firm’s 10 most popular destinations in the wider Caribbean region, and the Bahamas led the way.

The second-most popular private jet destination was St Maarten, followed by the Turks and Caicos Islands.

“At XOJET, we strive to offer a world-class and seamless experience for our clients – no matter the destination,” said Shari Jones, the carrier’s chief marketing officer. “Not surprisingly, the Caribbean accounts for over 20 percent of our annual flying and continues to increase year after year.”

Some people say its all about location, location, location. However, another way of looking at it , and far more appropriate, is location, limited supply and uniqueness. 


This is one of the last remaining listed properties available on the most magnificent of all beaches, Grace Bay beach.

The property consists of several private residences dating back to the early 1970's and sits on over 4 acres of prime beachfront property. However, the existing properties are not the primary attraction. Zoned for Hotel/Tourism, and having over 550 linear feet of some of the most amazing beach frontage, this property offers the ultimate location for a new luxury hotel/resort development, or a stunning, one of a kind estate villa enclave. 

The Turks and Caicos is undoubtedly entering a period that will soon see several hotel resorts under consideration, with the possibility of one going in the ground toward the end of this year, or early 2016. And with the overwhelming popularity of the islands, seen in the link below, its easy to see why so many are eager to find opportunities such as this.

The #1 Travelers Choice Island in the world is Providenciales, the most populated of the Turks and Caicos islands. 

"The diving and snorkeling in Providenciales is as convenient as it is stunning, thanks to miles of coral reef that's easily accessible from the shore. The upscale resorts and captivating beachscapes of Grace Bay make it a popular choice for waterfront escapes. The cliffs and crags of Chalk Sound make a lovely backdrop for kayaking the bright turquoise waters". 

Also, with the recent changes in density requirements in the TCI, developers can now create a new and fresh model, maximizing land usage and attracting a new buyer demographic.

Please call us today and let us share this amazing opportunity, with a further opportunity to acquire the adjacent property creating just over 5 acres.

Christie’s International Real Estate, the world’s leading luxury real estate network, is proud to serve as the ‘Official Luxury Real Estate Partner’ of Art Southampton, along with Regency International Estates of the Turks and Caicos, and a further 8 fellow affiliate sponsors. The premier international modern and contemporary art fair in Bridgehampton, NY, Art Southampton features a carefully selected group of 80 international art galleries.

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) July 06, 2015

Now in its fourth season, Art Southampton will take place July 9 through 13 at a new location—Nova’s Ark Project, 60 Millstone Road. The Fair offers collectors, curators, designers, and art advisors the opportunity to acquire the finest blue-chip modern and contemporary works of art from the emerging, mid-career cutting edge, Post War, and Pop eras, with a focus on design and functional art. The amenity-rich event, with an unrivaled ambiance and design, presents convenient access for residents of Long Island, New York City, and the Tri-State, as well as global travelers who frequent the Hamptons in the summer months.

Through its sponsorship of Art Southampton, Christie’s International Real Estate and participating members of its international affiliate network such as Regency
International Estates from the Turks and Caicos Islandswill continue to enhance the natural synergy between contemporary art and luxury residential real estate. The connection emphasizes the unique, lifestyle-centric qualities that link an investment in a multi-million-dollar trophy property to the purchase of a world-class work of art.

Christie’s International Real Estate has served as a marquee sponsor of internationally acclaimed, Miami-based fairs Art Miami and Art Wynwood for three

consecutive years.

“We are very pleased to participate as a top sponsor of the summer’s most important art event in the Hamptons,” said Dan Conn, Chief Executive Officer of Christie’s International Real Estate. Luxury Defined, Christie’s International Real Estate’s annual in-depth report on the high-end residential property market, cited the appeal of the Hamptons, including that it was the location of 2014’s most expensive residential real estate sale, at US$147 million.

“With values now exceeding $100 million, ‘trophy home’ has become the new insider term in the world of luxury residential real estate,” continued Conn. “The type of buyer who would collect a $179.4 million Picasso like the one sold at Christie’s recently concluded Post-War and Contemporary Art auction, is the same buyer who is interested in these one-of-a-kind homes.”

“We are extremely appreciative of Christie’s International Real Estate’s support of Art Southampton,” said Nick Korniloff, Director and Partner of Art Miami, LLC. “Christie’s International Real Estate’s support and success at Art Miami and Art Wynwood in Miami has been an extremely positive experience for all of us, and we are now thrilled of the network’s commitment to Art Southampton. We look forward to another successful fair, this year putting a spotlight on the best the

 contemporary art market and luxury real estate market have to offer from around the globe.”

Throughout the duration of the fair, Christie’s International Real Estate will host an interactive booth within the Art Southampton pavilion, exhibiting luxury residential real estate offerings from around the globe. The event will also feature the co-sponsorship and onsite participation of nine Christie’s International Real Estate affiliates (bulleted below). Affiliate representatives and their VIP guests will enjoy kicking off the fair at an exclusive eventhosted by local affiliate Brown Harris Stevens at a Hamptons estate on July 8, and attending the opening VIP preview of the fair on July 9.

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) has long been known as a destination that attracts some of the world’s most exclusive clientele, producing stunning properties that are undoubtedly some of the Caribbean’s most desired.

A fact recently highlighted by one of TCI’s most prestigious properties, “The Sanctuary”, a unique private island retreat now on the market for $39M and represented by the prestigious Christie’s International Real Estate.

The property is situated on seven acres with over 800 feet of prime beachfront and an extension of internationally acclaimed fashion designer Donna Karan’s sprawling Caribbean estate. Located on the beautiful island of Parrot Cay, considered to be one of the most secluded and exclusive resort islands in the Caribbean.

In talking with Katherine Baryluk, Director of the Brokerage responsible for Donna Karan’s property, she explains, “As the exclusive affiliates of Christie’s International Real Estate, we are able to align and promote such prestigious properties to our exclusive and discerning buyers who have trusted their high value real estate purchases to us for many years. Conversely, entrust us with the sale of their luxury residences through our real estate devision, and art through Christie’s Auction House” 

Ms. Baryluk goes on to say, “Christie’s International Real Estate is an invitation only network composed of the world’s most proven and qualified real estate specialists in the luxury residential sector. We have offices in London, New York, Hong Kong, Beverly Hills, Chicago and Palm Beach, to name a few. In total, 135 global Affiliates with over 25,000 real estate professionals in 45 countries. Something that in a global destination such as ours, is paramount to completing transactions of this nature”. As can be seen through our latest release, such as in the Wall Street Journal, we are able to attract global attention for the entire archipelago of the Turks and Caicos”

The company has had a strong track record of successfully selling some of the TCI’s highest value properties, including and most recently, the sale of a majestic beachfront estate listed at $16.9M, something achieved in just 3 months, a record for the company and extremely impressive in the TCI where the average time on the market for this price point is often a few years. 

Robert Greenwood, Director and Private Broker for the company explained, “we have carefully positioned ourselves to provide dedicated and specialized service at a very high level. We prefer to remain a bespoke,

exclusive Brokerage, only allowing so many high value properties into our inventory at any one time. By limiting the amount of properties we represent, we can better fulfill our customer’s and client’s needs through dedicated attention, something that is extremely necessary when managing transactions of this caliber.  Without an overpopulated inventory, our team can focus on an individual property, targeting global buyer demographics, creating focused marketing, and attracting THE buyer who fits perfectly with what is being offered”

Mr. Greenwood also noted, “this trend of real estate transactions is a clear indicator that the high net worth investor has re emerged, something that requires a high level of confidence in a specific market, and a

 jurisdiction as a whole. He continues to say, “ the re growth of our real estate market over the last couple of years has been hard work on all of those in the real estate sector, but this dedication to the industry is now starting to pay off in all sectors.  Mr. Greenwood, who is also the President of the Turks and Caicos Real Estate Association (TCREA) has seen this trend emerge, and barring any unforeseen global issues, expects it to continue. “Our client’s needs are clear, and given the multitude of benefits we offer here in the TCI, we are able to fulfill the majority,  primarily the need for privacy and seclusion.”

PARROT CAY, TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS– A seven-acre beachfront property on Parrot Cay of the Turks and Caicos Islands -- considered to be one of the most secluded and exclusive resort islands of the Caribbean -- is now being exclusively marketed by Christie’s International Real Estate, the world’s leading luxury real estate network. Offered at U.S. $39 million by affiliate Regency, the resort-like compound is an extension of “The Sanctuary,” the private island retreat of Donna Karan. Secluded and flanked by lush vegetation, the property, which directly fronts turquoise ocean waters and white powder-soft sands, offers unparalleled panoramic views of the island’s pristine surroundings. Two, four-bedroom villa estates are centerpieces of the compound, each featuring a second-floor master bedroom with stunning ocean views, three en-suite bedrooms and an infinity pool.

Designed by Cheong Yew Kuan, a world-renowned Singapore architect, and completed with New York’s Bonetti/Kozerski Studio, each of the property’s meticulously crafted interiors is complemented by exotic features, such as cedar and coral stone walls, European walnut floors, lightly filled raw travertine baths, teak furniture and eclectic works of art from Bali to Africa. A screened-in guest pavilion sits adjacent to outside Ipe wood terraces. This centerpiece of the property serves as a wonderful gathering place for family and friends, an indoor formal dining area offers seating for up to 20 and walks out to the third swimming pool. A state-of-the-art kitchen pavilion, yoga pavilion, staff quarters and storage pavilions complete the exterior.

“This is a property with unmistakable global appeal -- an ultra-luxury hideaway with unique character and the most desirable of attributes,” said Rick Moeser, Senior Vice President, Regional Manager of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Given its size, scope and enviable privacy, this resort-style compound is certainly a rarity on the landscape.”

“Sanctuary was custom designed to not only be a family-friendly destination for achieving balance and tranquility, but the restoration of wellness,” said Katherine Baryluk of Regency, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. “With its tranquil setting and impressive scale along the turquoise western shores of Parrot Cay, this is the ultimate ‘sanctuary’ for the most discerning of buyers looking for five- star, 24-hour services on a private island.”

Residents of the property can also enjoy two private butlers, a personal chef and daily maid services as well as access to resort amenities, such as a 24-hour manager, sporting facilities, water sports, restaurants and boutiques.

The Turks and Caicos Islands Real Estate Market Continues to Grow and Strengthen through 2014.

As with our quarterly reports, our goal is to enlighten & educate our readers about the performance of the real estate market within the turks and caicos and clearly charting trends by taking each property category and translating the data into a clear and concise format.

The basis of the information provided in this report derives from the turks and caicos real estate association’s (TCREA) multiple listing service (MLS). The MLS is a centralized database of properties actively for sale by its 15 broker members, and nearly 100 agent members, of whom constitute the majority of sales in the tci. Whilst this is an advanced method of showcasing all properties to and for the general public, it is also a valuable tool used by the association to track sales statistics. 

The most valuable of all data gathered relates to properties that have actually sold, Days on the market, list to sell ratio, final sale price, etc. TCREA and its members regard this as its exclusive proprietary information, therefore only release approved data, such as total dollar volumes and percentages, will be seen throughout this report. More detailed information can be gained when a buyer or seller works directly with a Broker or Agent and constitutes their basis of expertise.

The Real Estate Market in the Turks and Caicos Island for 2014 has againenjoyed steady growth over the previous year. Year on Year from .2009, a period when the market experienced ill effects associated to the global economic downturn, the real Estate Sector has grown considerably. 

The graph to the right shows impressive gains in 2010 and 2011 compared to 2009, with 2012 showing a meteoric 276% increase in dollar volume sales. As we experience greater global stability we see that the past three years, 2012, 2013, 2014, Have enjoyed a strong, steady, and consistent 6% (average) growth in the overall market.

Everything said to this point highlights a solid ‘recovery’ phase from a period that was undoubtedly a very difficult time for most, if not all markets around the worldHowever, this is only a part of the actual picture for the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Turks and Caicos Islands maintain allure regardless of global issues. It still offers an amazing lifestyle, coupled with a wise investment for those looking to diversify their portfolios in a tax free, offshore jurisdiction with solid wealth management opportunity. The Turks and Caicos Islands are a ‘Beginning of Lifecycle destination’ remaining virgin territory for new developments across the archipelago. As such, it wouldn't be an unfair conclusion that we can expect further new development boosting the market. Coupled with the desires of the buyer demographic looking to ‘find that next new destination’ and increased airlift, we can sensibly expect a bright future (read full report).
