Bob and Risa Frackman, native from New York, are the creators and former owners of Robert's Grove. Bob started in 1995 with building a home at a strip of beach at the Placencia Peninsula between Seine Bight Village and the Placencia Airstrip. This place, which started as a home, developed to a succesfull resort. Bob was 70 years old when he started this project and he sold the resort in february 2011, when he was 85 years old, to the next owner, Jean-Marc Tasse and Michael Kramer. Jean-Marc and Michael are the principals of Sandhill Resort Holdings Ltd, which have earlier bought Singing Sands Inn in Maya Beach. The ownership group was in 2012 joined by Boris Mannsfeld, who Jean-Marc and Michael knew from the opening party of the hotel Singing Sands Inn and the expat community The Villas at Cocoplum.  
 
A new development by these owners is a marina at the Placencia Lagoon. This marina has been rebuilt in 2012 across the street from the beach resort. In the marina it is possible to buy a lot to built your own home. A home in that location gives you the possibility to enjoy the marina live near a beach resort. Of the 31 lots for sale 19 lots are already sold and 11 homes are either finished or under construction. Plans for future expansion include a luxury wellness center & spa and a conference center.
