"He knows a lot of the locals now so feels right at home and relaxed when he's on the island."
Simon typically spends the winter months on the Caribbean island on his superyacht, but is now eyeing a permanent residence, according to the insider.
Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson has revealed he's split from Simon's Syco record label.
The 28-year-old pop star - who first found fame as part of One Direction - announced an amicable split from the label via Twitter and revealed he's now "really excited for the future".
Louis - who also starred alongside Simon on the 'X Factor' judging panel in 2018 - wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "Hope everyone is doing ok! Just wanted to let you know that Syco Music and I have agreed to part ways. I'm really excited for the future and to be back in the studio writing the next album. Can't wait to finally see you all on tour!!
"Stay safe and see you soon, Louis x (sic)"
Louis released his debut album, 'Walls', in January, but previously admitted he initially found it tough to adjust to life as a solo artist.
He confessed: "It actually hit me like a ton of bricks."
