Florida Timeshare on Historic Singer Island
Palm Beach and Palm Beach Shores have long been a favorite getaway for those who want to escape winter weather and enjoy sun and sand in upscale style. The Marriott Ocean Pointe timeshare is luxurious and in keeping with the affluent charm and lifestyle that defines Singer Island, which boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the world.
The island is named after the twenty-third son of the founder of the Singer Sewing Machine company, Paris Singer, who developed the nearby city of Palm Beach. It is believed that Mr. Singer originally purchased the island as a gift for a woman he loved. Sadly, she failed to appreciate his grand gesture, so Singer and architect Addison Mizner, set about to develop the property with a large resort on either end of the island and a golf course in between.
The combination of the 1928 hurricane and the 1929 stock market crash brought development of the resort properties on the island to a halt, until 1947 when railroad tycoon, A. O. Edwards, bought 240 acres of land on the island and began building hotels and luxury vacation homes. After Edwards’ death in 1960, financier John D. Macarthur bought the Edwards estate and came to be the largest landowner in Palm Beach County, with more than 100,000 acres of real estate. Having built his empire by founding the Chicago’s Banker’s Life and Casualty Insurance Company, MacArthur reigned over his multi-billion dollar kingdom from a coffee shop booth in the island’s Colonnades Hotel, reporting for work there daily until his death in 1976. Today, Marriott’s Ocean Pointe Resort stands on the spot where MacArthur once ran his business.
