Meet the team



Managing Director

I first joined the travel industry after finishing university almost 20 years ago and have never wanted to work in any other sector since. I have been extremely fortunate to have travelled the world within various different roles, visiting destinations that otherwise I most probably would never have seen. There are so many beautiful places to visit and I am proud to be involved in sharing some of them with you through the villa holidays that we offer. I truly love taking family villa holidays, having travelled away with friends initially, but more so with my family of late.

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Try the local food within your holiday destination. There are so many culinary delights to explore, so make sure you try as much as you can.


I love Croatia, it is stunningly beautiful and full of heritage, so anywhere you choose to visit, you will not be disappointed. This villa is located on the Island of Brac, an easy ferry ride from Split. If you want a villa holiday to get away from it all, yet still have everything you need, then this villa will not disappoint.


Head of Product & Commercial

Hailing from Australia, I travelled to Europe on a Gap Year (many years ago) - and never went home! I have travelled the world and worked in travel product ever since creating unforgettable experience for thousands of clients from backpackers to luxury travellers. I have backpacked across South America, travelled by rail on the Trans Mongolian railway from Moscow to Beijing and experienced the a touch of luxury in South East Asia.

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Be prepared and go with the flow. Do some research about your destination, get to know local people where you are travelling and if something unexpected happens or you are delayed, treat it as part of the adventure.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLA: Rhodes, Greece - Villa Seven

What's not to love? A luxury villa on the beach big enough to take the whole family (including the Grandparents). I love to bring some babysitters on holiday. The kids love it and me and the husband get to have a night off. Win, win.




I studied Tourism Business Management at university and graduated in 2016. I have always had a passion for travel since a young age and have been lucky enough to travel to many countries across the world. I started working at SPL Villas in September 2022 where I have been lucky enough to build working relationships across Europe and USA, to deliver the best villas available. Villa holidays are perfect for friends and families who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of a hotel and enjoy each other’s company from your own private surroundings. 

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Plan your days ahead to ensure that you get the most out of your destination, whether its sightseeing attractions or restaurant reservations! 

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLA: Rhodes, Greece – Villa Seven 

Greece is a favourite holiday destination for me, and I have visited multiple times. Rhodes is a perfect destination if you are looking to experience good food, stunning views and beaches and lovely warm weather. 




I first started working in the villa sector of the travel industry 17 years ago and have been a passionate advocate of villa holidays ever since. I have travelled with my job all over Europe and have stayed at some of the most wonderful villas in some of the most incredible destinations. I love taking a villa holiday with my family and friends and I have stayed in the majority of the destinations that SPL Villas feature.

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Book in advance to ensure you get the villa that you want, availability goes quickly and you don’t want to miss out!

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLA: Mallorca, Spain - Casablanca Carbo

I have had many wonderful villa holidays in Mallorca with friends and family. Pollensa, Cala San Vicente and Alcudia are perfect destinations for a villa holiday, with warm weather, friendly locals, beautiful family beaches and great cuisine to be found there. I love this villa as it has stunning sea views and it isn’t too far from the beach, the shops or the restaurants and cafes. 




I have been in the travel industry since 1994 and previously worked for a major high street travel agent where I gained most of my experience and expertise. Before joining SPL Villas, I was working for an independent family run travel company where I enjoyed compiling complex worldwide itineraries. When not endeavouring to deliver the best memories possible for my customers, I am either enjoying the sun or longing for its return.

TOP TRAVEL TIP: If you fancy a catered meal, why not ask us about local chefs, who can come and prepare you a delicious meal within your villa.


I love visiting Turkey and have taken many family holidays to this destination. This villa is wonderfully spacious, private and offers superb sea views. With local amenities and the beach close by, it is perfect for a family villa holiday or with a group of friends.




Before joining SPL Villas, I was working for an independent family run business where I enjoyed providing excellent service to clients. Here at SPL Villas I continue supporting and assisting our customers to ensure they choose the perfect villa holiday home that is right for them.

TOP TRAVEL TIP:  Appreciate the local culture and if possible learn some phrases, even if it’s how to order a glass of wine.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLAProtaras, Cyprus - Villa Sunset

Rich in history and culture, Cyprus is a super destination for a villa holiday.  This 5 star villa with sea view is so spacious and it’s perfect for those looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.




Travel has always been my passion, for just over 25 years I have had the pleasure of being a part of this wonderful industry and creating the most memorable holiday experiences for customers. Prior to joining SPL Villas, I spent most of my career working for a Tour Operator and specialising in tailor made holidays, detail is key and always ensuring the best customer experience.

I have been to the most amazing European countries where many of our villas are located and had the pleasure of getting under the skin of the country by exploring in a car, on foot or on bike, there is nothing better than living as a local, trying delicious food and wine, and the siestas of course (without having to reserve your sunbed)! 

TOP TRAVEL TIP: To guarantee the best villa to meet all your needs, book early, once it is sold it is sold.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLA: Cyprus – Villa Coral Beach, Latchi

I love to visit Cyprus with my family, it holds many special memories of quality family time together and it is my go-to European destination. Pretty much all year-round sunshine, delicious catch of the day fish from the local fisherman and wine, what is not to love. As a family we enjoy exploring on foot and this villa truly is in an ideal location, immediate access to the sandy beach and perfect for exploring Polis, Latchi and the nature trails of Aphrodite. It is located not too far from Paphos airport so no long transfers. Once we have explored, we can retire peacefully by the pool, enjoy the sea views, and watch the beautiful sun set with a glass of Keo – just bliss !



Trade Manager

I have been in travel for 25 years, starting off as a modern apprentice in a Travel Agent and I have also worked for Tour Operators too. I have plenty of experience within the travel industry. I have been lucky enough to travel far and wide, yet there is still so much of the world I still need to see!

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Having a plan/itinerary for 1 or 2 days of your holiday, to ensure you get the most out of the destination. We tend to hire bikes and explore.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLAFlorida, Orlando - Villa Towhee

Orlando gives the best of both worlds for everyone of all ages, you can have an action packed fun filled day, or a busy day shopping, but mostly you can relax and unwind in your villa with family and friends and just do nothing.



Business Development Manager  - North & Scotland

I have been in the travel industry for nearly 30 years. Starting on a YTS scheme for a large travel agency group before working within an independent travel agency, homeworking and then working as a regional sales manager for a supplier before joining SPL Villas. I have been fortunate to have experienced many different types of holidays but always prefer a Villa for my own holiday!

TOP TRAVEL TIP: Don’t be too tempted to stay by your own private pool! Make sure to explore the region and truly live like the locals in your home from home!

FAVOURITE DESTINATION & VILLA: Villa Florita, Correlejo Fuerteventura.

The island is a firm favorite as we have been visiting for 20 years! With its dramatic volcanic landscape and so many beautiful unspoilt beaches its perfect for families and groups of friends looking to enjoy all of the different activities on offer such as surfing, wind & kite surfing, Paddle boarding, cycling and walking
