An undisclosed friend of Carla Connor lives here, who Carla went to visit between February and November 2009 after discovering that her husband Tony Gordon was behind the death of her lover Liam Connor. Returning to Weatherfield for a brief period in October, she quickly went back to Los Angeles believing that she killed his henchman Jimmy Dockerson.

In 2011, Carla returned following her rape ordeal at the hands of Frank Foster. In the second half of 2012, Carla and her boyfriend Peter Barlow toured the Caribbean islands and then stayed here so he could recover from his alcoholism. They returned in December that year, however Carla was eager to go back and hoped to set up a business in LA, determined to put Weatherfield behind her. The couple's plans fell apart however when Peter decided that he couldn't abandon his son Simon again and Carla boarded the plane alone but after a change of heart, she returned to Weatherfield just over a week later.
