"We truly enjoyed our stay at Jems. It was very relaxing with an incredible view. The photos do not do the villa justice. You have to see it to believe it. The Villa is well maintained and provides a great place to come home to after a day at the beach. Every detail has been thought of and prepared for you. Including daily maid service. We booked this directly through Jill the owner and it was an incredible experience. She responded to every one of our questions quickly and thoroughly, gave us great recommendations on how to get to the Island for car rental, and what to expect. She was delightful to deal with. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the Island life. The pool is gorgeous and the grounds are well maintained. The amazing French bakery just down the road was a bonus. This is a great vacation villa with owners that take care to insure you have a great time.
We will certainly be back and without hesitation will stay at Jems."

"We recently spent a week at Moonrise Villa on peaceful Elsie bay in Anguilla. This tastefully designed and decorated villa with its understated elegance, stunning ocean views, private beach, impeccably decorated home, and spectacular site overlooking the sea affords its guests a little slice of paradise. The architecture of Moonrise Villa is designed to immerse you in the beauty of the natural setting while avoiding ostentation. We were struck by the way in which a minimalist modern design blended with traditional Anguillian forms. Artful touches of ornament, like the beautiful paintings by local artists, complement the clean lines of the interior. As we entered the Villa, a breath-taking vista onto the sea and the horizon beyond opened up before us. The floor-to-ceiling doors which open onto the spacious patio and pool area can be folded back completely so that the living space flows into the open air. Each master bedroom suite has windows that frame a view of the sea, a small patio and garden with lovely flowering plantings, and a private outdoor shower. It was heavenly awakening to the rising sun and sitting on the patio immediately outside the bedroom to catch a glimpse of the majestic great white heron who nests nearby and skims the sea for his morning meal.
The Villa takes full advantage of the natural environment by using shuttered windows and doors strategically placed to maximize cross-ventilation so the prevailing winds keep the inside cool and comfortable. We never had to use the air conditioning, and we could regulate the shutters to allow as much natural light in as we needed during the day. We were pleased that we could minimize our carbon footprint because of these sustainable design features.
The patio and pool area are spacious, and the covered dining area allowed for outdoor meals, rain or shine. Though the pool is lovely and the small private beach is a short walk or swim away, we couldn’t resist the allure of the many beaches that are just a short drive from the Villa. We went to a different beach every day, each one more beautiful than the last, and there are many others close by that we will definitely try next time we stay at Moonrise Villa. We could not have been more thrilled with our stay at this tastefully appointed home, set respectfully in its stunning natural environment. The week flew by, and we can’t wait to return to Moonrise Villa so we can luxuriate once again in this little slice of paradise."

"We are just back from a fabulous vacation! We have never been to Anguilla before, but will certainly be back. We were unsure of the Villa experience as we have previously only stayed at resorts and also have high expectations for vacations. Oceana met all of our expectations and more! The villa was perfect for two couples with the two king size suites. Both rooms were perfect and comparable. The best parts were the pool and the view - it was amazing! The house was stocked full of everything we needed and was very comfortable. Genelle helped us plan our trip - she reserved our boat transfers and had a rental car ready and waiting at the villa when we got there (by the way, a rental car is a must). She also helped with restaurant recommendations and answered several calls from us during the week. She also recommended Chef Tyrone to come to the house to cook. He was amazing and we had enough leftovers for dinner the next night. Highly recommend him. She also put us in touch with Gotcha charters which we ended up using twice during the week. Sheila was also great, kept the villa sparkling and gave us additional recommendations. All in all it was a great, relaxing vacation. We will definitely be back! Only note is that the sun comes up quite early and the curtains are very sheer resulting in a very bright room very early. Thanks for a great vacation!"
