Our timeshare programme was launched over 40 years ago, giving guests the opportunity to select a particular week in their chosen cottage and return to it annually. This is the offering we like to call Islandshare.

Since its inception, more than 3,000 families have bought an average of two weeks on this beautiful island, with many shares passed down from one generation to the next. As an Islandshare owner, you are a valued guest who has made a long-term commitment to being part of our island community. In return, you’ll find that everyone on the Estate is dedicated to ensuring your stay here is happy and relaxing, year after year.


A limited number of cottages and weeks are available for 40-year Islandshare ownership (to view available properties, download from the link on the left). Our cottages sleep from two to ten people, with a choice between traditional island homes and more contemporary beachfront properties.

Each of our Islandshare properties is beautifully furnished, contains original artworks and has Wi-Fi connectivity and satellite television. All are uniquely designed and have varying configurations, and a number have ground floor bedrooms. For full details of our Islandshare arrangements, please download our Disclosure Declaration.
