The moment we arrived on island, we fell in love with everything Montserrat has to offer. The island is safe, friendly with water that is safe to drink right out of the tap.
Barefoot Villa is located right between the mountains and the ocean which affords us a constant tropical breeze that blows right through the home most days and evenings.
The town of Olveston is located between the rainforest Woodlands and the arid lands Old Towne. This location affords us cooler temperatures than the arid lands and less mosquito problems one might find in the rain forest areas.
Our neighborhood is comprised of beautiful homes that are lived in year round and our neighbors are warm and inviting folks that look after one another.
A morning walk around our neighborhood is a great way to start or end your day!
