This private island is located at 12.57° N, 61.15° W. in the independent country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a multi-island state located to the south of the Caribbean archipelago 160 km west of Barbados.
The surface area of Isle a Quatre is approximately 376 acres. The length of the island is approximately 1.86 miles and varies in width between 250m to 975m. The coastal length is approximately 6.12 miles allowing for a great number of properties to have direct coastal frontage.
The highest point is approximately 146m (479 ft) above mean sea level.
Isle a Quatre, the classic dream island – four undulating hills above four stretches of the golden sand – presides over its own beautiful portion of the Grenadines, an archipelago stretching 120km from St. Vincent in the north to Grenada in the south.
Isle a Quatre has overwhelming views. North, and nearest at two kilometres, lies Bequia with its convenient airstrip. The mountainous main island of St. Vincent is visible beyond. Closer, to the east, rests the famed Mustique, and south is Canouan with its luxury 5-star hotel development with golf course.
The 376-acre island remains uninhabited and untouched save for the original estate house of the grandfather of Sir James Mitchell, former prime minister of the country, who owns the island together with his daughters. The island has been in the Mitchell family for over 100 years.
In preparation for sale of the island, Quatre Isle Resort Ltd., a holding company with limited liability, has been established. It has never traded and has no liabilities. The Quatre Isle Resort Act No. 38 of 2006, passed by the Parliament of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, offers a 20-year tax holiday, incentives, exemptions, and residency to the Company and investors. Conditions include the establishment of a first-class resort with a boutique hotel, luxury villas and basic infrastructure. The Act is similar to the successful Mustique and Canouan models.
