  • A terrific stay at Gentlle Winds

    "We loved our stay at Calypso Condo in Gentle Winds. When we were choosing which unit to stay, we picked this one since it looked to be nicely appointed. It was even nicer to see in person. The unit is immaculate and has everything you'd want or need during your stay. We never turned on the A/C because of the breezes that were always blowing through the unit. There are sliders in the front and back so it was quite comfortable. We were there during the off season so our restaurant selections were somewhat limited. There are several restaurants nearby. We drove into Christiansted a couple of nights also. We would definitely recommend this unit to someone looking to rent at Gentle Winds."

  • Villa Chikitu

    "Had an excellent 2 weeks staying at Villa Chikitu. We where met at the airport by the complex manager. A truck was arranged for us for our stay. By far the best way to enjoy the diving on the island. A very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay."

  • Beautiful villa, fabulous view - far exceeded out expectations!

    "We stayed at Moonrise Villa for a week and were thrilled by our experience. The pictures on the website do not do justice to the villa itself or the spectacular view. As much as we enjoyed the stunning beaches of Anguilla, it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the villa, the sparkling pool and the beautiful view. We spent several afternoons enjoying the exquisite little private beach directly across the bay where we had the beach all to ourselves! We're not really cooks so we didn't use the kitchen too much although it seems very well appointed. The restaurants on the island are very good and we tried several and enjoyed them all. (There are no restaurants within walking distance to the villa so you would need a car if you choose to stay there.) We also loved our outdoor bathroom with its pretty garden- very romantic! The house was pleasantly cool, with beautiful wooden louvers that allow the ample breeze to flow through the whole property. Even in June we didn't need air conditioning although it's available in all the bedrooms. There are two housekeepers who came in every day and were very sweet and helpful as was the rest of the staff. We felt very well taken care of, from the beautiful bed linens and towels ( the large bath-sheet size which we really loved) to the local cell phone that was there for our use while we were there. We can't wait to return to Moonrise next year."

  • Ocean View from every Room!

    "We had a wonderful time! The minute we walked in the condo, I felt that the unit was even better than described by the VRBO listing. It is spacious, very well kept and you can see the ocean from just about every location inside. The porch has a wonderful hammock that we used often – when the wind is blowing, the hammock rocks gently. Once you walk outside, you are a few steps from the beach. The beach is not as nice as 7 mile, but does have great snorkeling offshore. Unfortunately, for about half the time we were there, the wind was quite strong coming from off the ocean. If you like a private and low key setting, this side of the island it great. If you want more restaurant options and busyness – 7 mile beach is the place. We did go to 7 mile beach 3 times for different reasons during out stay – it’s not hard to get to and is about a 45 minute drive."
