Discover the Turtles

We are proud to support the work of The Barbados Sea Turtle Project

Swim with the island’s magnificent sea turtles

We hope the sea turtles, which live in the seas around Barbados will enchant you as much as they have us. They can live happily alongside visitors but also need protection. We are proud to have taken the lead in a project to assess the ‘sea turtle friendliness’ of our beachfront properties with audits carried out by The Barbados Sea Turtle Project.

Mark and Lisa Hammerton

We are Mark and Lisa Hammerton and we are lucky enough to spend our time organising villa and apartment holidays to the wonderful Caribbean island of Barbados.

We have been involved with the travel industry for most of our working lives but fell in love with Barbados after many visits and ended up buying a second home there.

We would love to talk to you about the island and our selection of wonderful properties and, as our priority is matching the right property to your requirements, we will always be open and honest in what we have to say.
