Boris Johnson's Caribbean Christmas holiday was paid for by the owner of the model for Bonkers Hall

From the Guardian:
Boris Johnson’s Caribbean holiday over the New Year was a £15,000 gift from a wealthy and controversial Conservative donor, newly released documents disclose. 
The prime minister and his partner Carrie Symonds accepted accommodation for a private holiday in St Vincent and the Grenadines. 
David Ross, a Tory donor who co-founded the Carphone Warehouse chain, provided the accommodation, which was reportedly on the private island of Mustique, one of the Grenadines.
David Ross, as regular readers will know, is the owner of Nevill Holt, which most historians now accept to be the model for Bonkers Hall.

Later. Or did he pay for it?

The Daily Mail says:
But last night Mr Ross – a Tory donor who co-founded the Carphone Warehouse chain – insisted he was not the owner of the villa and had not paid for Mr Johnson’s stay.
