The fairly young “Old Irish Blessing” of the Paradiso Rito duo, Peter Marrs, is an avid art-collector and ae rather unassuming IT professional holding the position of Senior Vice President for Dell EMC. Though a Boston native with Gaelic roots, Peter has lived in Asia for a good fourteen years and has spent more than half of it in the Philippines with his wife Christina. They are blessed with twins, Rory and Siohban, who are now frisky two and a half year old water-babies.
More than just wanting to set up a viable investment in Anilao, Batangas, Peter hopes to make this vibrant community their second, rather third home if and when retirement calls, as he already has a rest house in Boracay in addition to their current home in Alabang. He was drawn to this Anilao property because of its quaint charm, its beautiful ocean view and the dramatic Maricaban Island jutting out in the background.
It brings a smile to one’s lips seeing his eyes light up as he talks about Paradiso Rito’s humble organic vegetable garden, his collection of art pieces they plan to put on scheduled display at the resort and, the possibility of brewing and serving their own craft beer on site hopefully, in the near future. His childlike enthusiasm wonderfully peering through his corporate persona.
