Headed by managing director Paul B. Altman, who has more than three decades of industry experience, Altman Real Estate specializes in luxury villa rentals in Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, Antigua, and the Grenadines. In addition to villas, the company’s portfolio also includes apartments, hotels, plantations, and townhouses. One Barbadian rental option is the colonial-style Leamington House, the former residence of the American ambassador. Renovated by acclaimed British architect Oliver Messel, the house has five bedrooms, an outdoor pool, and a tropical garden extending to the beach. Depending on the season, villas may be available for less than $200 a night.
