The Villa Personal Staff
There is an excellent team in place at Palm Point to cater to guests’ every need. From a concierge to arrange activities and excursions to a local fisherman to drop off the catch of the day, our hand-picked team means that time spent at Palm Point is about more than just the place.
It is the team’s genuine warmth combined with their extensive local knowledge that keeps guests coming back time after time and gives Palm Point a true sense of place. Everyone takes a real pride in the villa and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is truly special. Whether it’s the Housekeeper, Rhoni, bringing in flowers from her garden each morning or Sylvan the Gardener serving fresh coconuts from the trees – nothing is too much trouble.
Every stay at Palm Point is tailored to the guest. Some of the people you may wish to meet during your stay:
Rhoni and Tianne Housekeepers
Rhoni joined the Palm Point team at the very beginning, over fifteen years ago. She is a fastidious housekeeper with incredibly high standards, and works with her niece Tianne to ensure that Palm Point is just as you like it. The ladies go to lengths to bring a personal touch to the house bringing fresh flowers from Rhoni’s garden each morning to decorate the villa.
Gillian grew up in Grenada before heading overseas to train and work in the hotel industry. She sailed into Antigua in 1991 and has since worked for a number of luxury resorts and restaurants, all the while building a wealth of knowledge about the best of the island, including insider tips to give guests a real flavour of what Antigua has to offer.
The tropical gardens surrounding Palm Point have never looked better than under Sylvan’s watchful eye. Responsible for the property’s acre plot, Slyvan is happy to share his great knowledge about the local plants and can be called upon to blend an immune-boosting herbal tea.
Having worked with Palm Point for three years, Darren is the best person to welcome holidaymakers to the island of Antigua. With his permanent smile and unerring punctuality, he will happily accompany you throughout your vacation.
Kevin Boat Captain
As a friend of the family for over seven years, Kevin can be hired to take Palm Point’s guests out in the villa’s 72-foot Sunseeker Predator sports yacht. Whilst out on the water, you’ll be amazed by his vast knowledge of the seas around Antigua and Barbuda, as well as St. Barts and St. Kitts.
Riv has known the family for years and is a first-class fisherman. With his enviable knowledge of the local waters and huge skill, a day spent with Riv is always entertaining whether on his 'rough and ready' fishing boat or on his slightly more comfortable sailing boat. As well as taking guests out to fish, Riv can also drop his daily catch at the house – on one occasion the fish he came to deliver was so big it had to be strapped to the roof of his car!
