"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."

"Just returned from Anguilla and the Clubhouse. I have been going to Anguilla since the 1980’s when I lived and worked in nearby St Maarten and can say the Clubhouse is a great value and lovely accommodation, particularly for Anguilla, as many comparable properties are priced well out of range. Others have already outlined many of the benefits of the property…I will simply say that these are accurate descriptions of the accommodation and experience, and I would recommend this property to everyone looking for great vacation experience on Anguilla.
However, I would like to make a few comments about the negative review above. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I don’t think this should go unchallenged. I’ll cover the points below:
NO gas…I’ve been to this property more than once…always plenty of gas
Smell of gas was overwhelming…that has never been the case
The owner does not provide a fully stocked kitchen…untrue
There's no toaster…untrue
We were forced to continually find places to eat that served hot beverages and food…Funny, must have been a very difficult search. Anguilla is overflowing with fine places to eat.
Large aggressive maintenance man - renters should be put in such an uncomfortable threatening situation…that would be Trenton, and this comment is utter foolishness. Trenton could never be characterized in this way, and is 100% courteous and helpful 100% of the time. This comment feels somewhat racist to me.
Further, the DVD didn't work properly….untrue
And even though there are 2 bathrooms, both showers are pointless as only a trickle of water comes out…moderate stream, I’d say this comment is untrue
With only intermittent moments of warm water…untrue
Also the safe did not work…untrue
The walk to the beach takes around 3 minutes through a scruffy gravel and rock area strewn with leaves and debris, and then you need to be fit enough to jump down on to the sand…access to the beach is down the left side of the big villa (Bellamare) and through a gate, down a set of stairs leading directly to the beach. Virtually every part of this comment is untrue.
This property is in a bad location, not worth the price…untrue, Shoal Bay Village is one of the nicer island destinations and the accommodations provide more, not less, for the money.
Go to Anguilla, stay in the Clubhouse and enjoy your visit. Anguilla is one of the best destinations in the Caribbean and the perfect place to relax."

"Our trip to Anguilla was fantastic! This was our second time to visit Anguilla, but our first time to Bayberry/Chinaberry. We got to see old friends, visit our favorite establishments and try some new things, too. It was just as wonderful as we remembered.
Staying at "The Berries" was delightful. It was perfect for our group of 6 adults. The location is great. It felt private and secluded. Gayle was easy to work with and accommodating. The beds were comfortable, the kitchens were well-equipped, and there was plenty of living space for all! Plus, you can't beat the views on the patios, especially for having some sundownders! There was also a great music selection. Lyn took care of us wonderfully. She has such a sweet demeanor and personality. Our house was kept so neat and clean throughout our stay. We never wanted for anything, and she even managed to keep the floors free of sand.
If you stay, don't forget to fill up the bird bath and put out some sugar. The sugar-birds are quite fun to watch.
We will most certainly be back to Anguilla and would definitely love to stay here again."
