“Splitters,” those who choose to divide their time between a primary residence and a second home, are changing the definition of home away from home.

As life grows busier and busier, a new generation of homebuyers is emerging. Due to their busy schedules, splitters are prioritizing residences that provide access to daily direct flights, advances in technology and virtual workspaces.

Two locations in Barbados — St. Peter’s Bay and Port Ferdinand — have recognized the presence of splitters and believe they provide the ideal resort destinations for splitters to make their second home.

With its turquoise waters and white sand beaches, Barbados is the ideal spot for a beautiful and relaxing second home. In addition to the stunning views and endless beaches, these resorts are among the most advanced in their region with superior telecommunications and utility systems, stable political system and well-educated work force. Plus, due to direct flights from NYC (and Newark), Miami and Toronto, residents can enjoy easy access to major cities.

“For those seeking luxury and refinement in all things, alongside exceptional service, sumptuous dining and unlimited recreation, this is an idyllic island home away from home,” says Tristan Blades, Head of Sales for Port Ferdinand and Saint Peter’s Bay. “Villa residents of Port Ferdinand and Saint Peter’s Bay enjoy an array of duty-free benefits with homeownership as well as personal home management, 24-hour security, housekeeping and maintenance, direct access to some of the island’s finest golf courses, along with access to all resort amenities and beach facilities.”
