Your HostsCome and meet Mark and Margarita at Villa Margarita.
Mark was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand and met his Cuban-American wife Margarita in the Isle of Man, British Isles (home of the TT Races) in 1990. Mark and Margarita got married in 1993 and lived in Miami, Florida (Margarita’s hometown) for the first nine years of their marriage. Margarita’s Cuban background, as well as the city of Miami’s Cuban influence, exposed Mark to a whole new culture and way of life. Mark loved experiencing the customs, the food, the music, the dance, the passion and the celebratory aspects of the Cuban culture as well as the American way of life.
Having lived a high paced life in Miami, full of fun and excitement, Mark and Margarita decided to allow themselves and their children the opportunity to experience life in New Zealand. After having been away for twenty years in total, Mark was happy to return to his home with his wife and children and share his culture and wonderful heritage with them. They are fully enjoying the Kiwi lifestyle and together they give Villa Margarita a diverse cultural flair.
