Hello, our names are Chris and Liz. We are just an everyday couple who had a dream to take our young family out to live on a Caribbean Island. I was a house builder in the UK, and Liz was a lawyer, so it seemed logical to spend some of our time building what is now our holiday home. We call it rather unimaginatively Bay View Villa, but when you look at the view, you will see why.
In the early years the children attended a local school, but as they grew older, we knew we would have to come back to the UK. We get back there as often as we can in the school holidays, as the children still love it. When we are not there, we often catch ourselves wondering what everybody is up to in Marigot Bay. As we cannot be there all the time now, our beautiful home awaits you, to come and enjoy it in the same way as we do.
We have been lucky to accumulate a number of properties in the UK which we rent out, so we are well versed in the practice. We are also very fortunate to have Pauline and Cornelius to look after the property in our absence. Before they met, Cornelius skippered Charter Yachts all over the world for 30 years, and Pauline was a qualified fitness instructor. Between them they speak English, French, Italian, Spanish and a little German. They live and work in the Bay with their two children, and amongst other things, they manage several other properties, so they are never far away if you need them, or just want to pop in for a chat. They are extremely well organised and professional. They will welcome you to Bay View Villa, show you how the house works, talk to you about things to do and places to see, and attend to any maintenance issues should they occur.
Meanwhile I will give you lots of information before you go, and make sure you get to Bay View by taxi or car hire without getting lost.
Between us we will all look after you, and make sure you have a wonderful time.
Go on try it, but be careful, you’ll fall under the magic that draws us all back there again and again.

I visited this villa and it was just paradise on earth, the view is to die for, the villa is top quality and has every aminity you could wish for. The pool is beautiful and looks right across Marigo bay. The local shops and hotels are just far enough away to be 'handy' but the villa still maintains the tranquil and private setting that is just perfect.
