"There is only one word to describe the villa: Wow. Being a frequent traveler, I have stayed in many villas but this one is by far the most beautiful. There is everything you need for a great stay. A huge kitchen where you can find everything you need for cooking, spacious rooms, well appointed a comfortable stay. All surrounded by sliding doors that illuminate the house. Cleaning every day (thanks Diana). And what about the pool, spacious, clean with a small staircase to go down quietly. Little more, buoys and inflatable mattresses for children to play in the pool.
Finally, Phil and Sue are super interesting tips on local life as on the different places to do (sightseeing, beaches, restaurants). A big thank you to them also that allowed us to have a wonderful stay with our two children."

"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."
