Located on the beautiful northwest coast of Barbados, Port Ferdinand is the latest multi-million dollar luxury resort managed by Barbadian brand, UNNA Luxury Resorts & Residences. Over the past few years the proliferation of individual villas available for sale and rental on Barbados, has made it hard to recognize the hallmarks of quality when hunting for a dream second home. Port Ferdinand fills a gap in the market with an exclusive collection of luxurious homes with world class amenities and authentic, legendary Bajan service in a unique marina setting. It is one of the most exciting luxury resort developments on the island and phase one has just been launched, offering 32 homes available for sale and rental, each including a berth for yachts of 60 to 90 feet. When completed, Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina and Residences will offer 82 spacious residences and 120 yacht berths in total.

The principal developers of Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina and Residences are the same Barbadian entrepreneurs who produced the island’s first resort marina, the highly acclaimed Port St. Charles. In addition, their diverse portfolio includes luxurious residential communities on the South and West Coast and a number of national initiatives of substantial scale and stature. With the explosive growth of the yachting community worldwide, additional marina space offering a new level of luxury, amenities and service is clearly in high demand. Building on the standard established by Port St. Charles, Port Ferdinand is a boat owner’s haven, offering a lifestyle unmatched by any other in the Barbados.

Port Ferdinand homes range from 2,500 square feet to 6,100 square feet, with property prices starting from US$2.15m for a two bedroom marina home to US$6.5m for a four bedroom ocean and marina view penthouse. Each home also provides an owner’s storage room and boat storage room and also includes the option of duty free importation of a yacht or motor boat, as well as duty free furniture packages.

No stone has been left unturned in UNNA’s pursuit of the ultimate in luxury living; the homes are beautifully appointed and are available in two distinct decorative styles: the Artfully Contemporary style features light maple wood-work and limestone flooring, while the Bold Classic style meets traditional tastes, featuring beautiful dark wood hues and rich marble floors conveying a timeless, elegant ambiance.  Port Ferdinand homes are finished to the highest standards, with meticulous attention to detail, featuring solid oak doors, hand crafted coral rendered walls, granite or quartz kitchen counters and GE Profile stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling marble tiles in bathrooms, concealed air conditioning and Kohler & Hansgrow fixtures.

Aside from owning a beautiful and unique home, owners of Port Ferdinand Luxury Residences are buying into a unique lifestyle, as the resort provides access to a fresh, vibrant development which caters for all ages and lifestyles, where guests can be as active or relaxed as they wish. This lifestyle experience is on hand with an unparalleled choice of facilities and activities, including concierge, watertaxi and watersports centre, health and wellbeing facilities, fine dining, casual pool dining; plus golf simulator, business and conference facilities, dockmaster and yacht maintenance services and direct beach access.

For those wanting to generate rental income from their Port Ferdinand homes, UNNA provides professional rental and management services. Holiday rentals at Port Ferdinand will be available from late summer, with rates for 2 bedroom marina front homes from US$600 per home per night from 15th April – 14th December 2014.

At Port Ferdinand’s sister resort, Saint Peter’s Bay Luxury Resort & Residences, near Speightstown, homeowners also have the option to purchase a license on a 50ft/60ft yacht berth at Port Ferdinand.

Following years of economic downturn, resurgence in investor confidence means this is a great time to invest in Barbados property. Sterling is particularly strong against the US dollar, to which the Barbados dollar is linked, and as British buyers make up the majority of the Barbados overseas market, Port Ferdinand is ideally positioned to attract British buyer attention.

Alistair Brown UNNA’s Sales & Marketing Director comments: “Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina and Residences is one of the most significant and exciting developments on Barbados and will be a haven for boat owners, especially with the option of duty free concessions on yachts and boats. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Barbados become a ‘villa’ destination and the recently passed Special Entry & Reside Permit, allowing residency to investors and their families, is driving even greater interest. The concept of the UNNA brand is to offer a truly luxurious multi-generational experience through a range of activities and entertainment, while delivering the best in resort living and refined comfort.”
