Recent Island Harbour reviews

  • Nice, Quiet, and Clean!

    "My husband and I really enjoyed our mini vacation here! While other wedding guests stayed in resorts on the other side of the island (approx 30 min drive from Cap Jaluca), we opted to stay in a more local setting- and we're glad we did! The apartment was very nice, Desmond and Tessa were very welcoming, and we were very close (short drive) to several gorgeous beaches, including Shoal Bay. We'd recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to the resort accommodations."

  • Enjoyed the warm Anguilla hospitality

    "The host was a lovely, kind woman who was very hospitable. You are staying in a community away from the most central tourist areas in Anguilla. It was a very unique experience, and I felt like if I stayed there for another week or two it would be like becoming part of the local fabric. You can hike to beaches from 'K's Kove' where you will be literally the only person there. It is an active fishing town so these remote beaches have as their only blemish some fishing boat waste from when storms have pummeled the coastline. To me that's not 'bad' like when I'm in Puerto Rico and people throw their trash everywhere at the beach. This location, this place is the real deal. It is not a 'typical tourist vacation', it is something different than that. However, I'd suggest renting a car and you can easily drive to Sandy Ground, Shoal Bay, Long Bay - those are the key tourist spots and they are worth a visit. They're all within a 10-20 minute drive. Roads are fairly easy to drive unlike, say, the US and British Virgin Islands where driving can be steep and difficult. My favorite restaurant to visit in Island Harbour is 'Elite Bar and Restaurant'. 'On Da Rocks' is nice with similarly good portions and friendly service, but - and I can't believe I'm saying this - the drinks are actually *too* strong. By the 2nd one, I'm like 'Whoa, too much too soon'...And 'On Da Rocks' has typical island reggae playing - while 'Elite Bar and Restaurant' has more low key lighting AND wonderful, wonderful soft rock from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Ahhh serenity....The only local choice for breakfast is 'Le Bon Pain' and the egg sandwiches are outstanding and a great value. They're HUGE - good for 2 people. 'Falcon's Nest' is a good "locals" option and a nice spot to stop for a later-night drink. I say that, but on weeknights everything is completely closed by 10pm if not earlier. The one exception might be 'Hibernia', but that's a pricey option. Meals there are around $35 and up, and it's more formal. I was underdressed and there wasn't a bar like at the other spots. But the proprietor there was nice as well, she definitely runs a tight ship with her staff so if you are looking for a more formal option 'Hibernia' might be a good choice. A short drive to 'Serenity' (hotel and bar) is another great option but it's a hell of a long walk - really should drive there. I watched my PATRIOTS at Elvis' Beach Bar in Sandy Ground and had a great time with ex-pat/tourists. PATRIOTS won it all tonight!"

  • Beautiful property, fabulous location!

    "My husband and I spent two weeks at this beautiful villa in November and we absolutely loved the property. It is located on the East end which is our favorite part of the island but you are never far away from anything on Anguilla. We were within walking distance of a great pastry shop and a few minutes drive from Shoal Bay East. It was fabulous having the pool for those days when you just wanted to stay close to "home". It was more space then we needed for the two of us as the house is very spacious with three bedrooms and baths on the ground floor as well as a sitting room and small kitchen. The upstairs is one open area including kitchen, dining and living area. Just to reassure anyone who had concerns as I did, you do not need a/c upstairs. If you open the beautiful balcony doors on all sides the breezes are incredible. Balconies exist on all four sides upstairs and three of them provide ocean views. The kitchen is fully stocked and the owner was nice enough to provide a few staples for when we arrived. Having the laundry room and clothes line was a great feature, stay for two weeks, pack for one. This property is in a residential area but you feel very safe and the grounds keeper for the property is only a few minutes drive away. When I couldn't find the iron, which was in a cupboard, the neighbour was nice enough to lend me hers. I have looked at most of the properties on Anguilla that are available for rent and this property provides fabulous features for the price asked."

  • The pot of gold at the end of an Anguilla rainbow

    "We have been coming to Anguilla for 20 years and have been at Villa Serenata the last five. For us it is perfect in every way. Location is within walking distance to Shoal Bay East, we have the most beautiful view of the green blue sea. The villa itself is well appointed and beautifully maintained. Madeleine and Rocco are wonderful and gracious landlords. Here's to the next 20 years"
