For years, what began as a husband and wife's dream to own a piece of the rock (Barbados), slowly birthed into their reality. Having spent his entire childhood here, John, a Barbadian by birth, met Nelda years later and the two have been returning to John's birthplace, along with their kids ever since. Nelda fell in love with the island so much, that they got married in Barbados and would often spend time with family and friends.


Sadly, Nelda passed away and didn't see the completed properties in person but saw the photos and approved of them. John knew he had to carry on her legacy and in January 2019, Nelohn Properties family business was created.

Recently incorporated, Nelohn Properties Inc. provides modern Vacation Rentals, Amazing Experiences and Property Management services. With a well traveled team of a combined background in Hospitality, Tourism and Management, everyone is hands on. Whether you meet us at check-in or departure, we look forward to hosting you. Get to know us!
