Why Neil Freeman chose Blowing Point
Anguilla is our home away from home. In 2008, we built the beautiful Villa Alegria in Anguilla's West End, and have enjoyed staying there ourselves, as well as sharing it with guests. Villa Alegria is extremely popular and we usually book almost 100% of our availability each year. When the Beaches Edge villas became available, we felt they would be a perfect addition. We loved the oceanfront location, amazing vistas and modern design, and felt the flexibility of guests being able to rent one or both of the villas would be appreciated by travelers. We are excited to be able to provide the same exceptional level of service we currently offer our Villa Alegria guests, to guests of Beaches Edge East and West.
What makes this Villa unique
Individually, Beaches Edge East and West offer a pleasing mix of modern and natural materials. Hard and soft edges combine with views of sea and sky to delight all six senses. Rented together, East and West create a private island retreat for guests with larger parties, with over 14,000 square feet of beautiful indoor and outdoor space, and choice of pools, terraces, balconies and spas. Extended families can be together, yet have their own space and privacy. Wedding parties have a unique space that does it all. Beaches Edge is an ideal spot for an intimate ceremony, or a gorgeous location for rehearsal dinners or bridal luncheons. And best of all, there's no need to book hotel rooms, as the villas also serve as the perfect home-base for families or friends of the bride and groom.

Perfect! I Highly Recommend!
Beaches Edge is a wonderful place to stay. I definitely give it 5 stars. We couldn't have been more pleased with the villas, the staff and Anguilla. I am on the board of a commercial real estate group in Chicago and we chose Beaches Edge as the location for our annual planning retreat this past February. We had 10 people so we booked both the East and West villas so everyone had his own bedroom suite and private bathroom. It was a working vacation for all of us, so the fact that the villas had Internet access was key. It worked out perfectly. With two villas we had plenty of space to spread out and then we met back up for meals and meetings. The owner and staff helped us plan our trip down to the last detail and everything was in pristine shape on the property. We flew into St. Martin. Some of my colleagues came in a day early and spent a night in St. Martin. We all made the quick trip by boat (I was actually surprised how close the boat launch was to the airport) to Anguilla and then took a taxi to Beaches Edge. The view is truly astounding. The villas are 5-star and secluded. We had a driver we could call anytime we wanted to go anywhere, and everything is just a few minutes away. There's a path next to the villas that takes you down to the beach. We walked down several times and took lots of great pictures. I was particularly struck by the beauty of the shadow of the mountains on St. Martin against the light blue of the sky and the deeper blue of the ocean. We spent hours out on the terrace, in the hot tub and pool just enjoying the view. We didn't cook anything except make coffee, but the kitchen had everything and there was a grill too. The food on Anguilla is delicious, really fresh and well-prepared. The villas' owner arranged for Dale Carty, the head chef and owner of Tasty's to come over and cook for us one night. It was one of the best meals we've ever had and included fresh grilled fish and some amazing Brussel sprouts. The restaurant Picante was also one of my favorites. We were just there for four days, so we didn't have long enough to explore the whole island, but we did a little beach hopping, snorkeling and swimming, took a boat cruise to one of the cays, listened to reggae legend Bankie Banks perform at his bar, Dune Preserve, and jumped off the rock at Little Bay. Some of my colleagues also went fishing. My wife was jealous that I got to go and she didn't, and we are already planning a family trip back with our kids.
Anguilla is the northern most Leeward Island in the Caribbean chain and synonymous with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. This British Overseas Territory is 15 miles long and 3 miles wide with a population of 13,000. The official language spoken in Anguilla is English, however, throughout the island you will hear many versions of the Anguillian dialect, always friendly and always helpful. Our currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, but the US dollar is widely accepted.
Beautiful beaches, friendly people and exquisite cuisine are the foundation that this exclusive destination was built on. Anguilla is a perfect choice for your Caribbean holiday, catering to travelers with different needs for their vacation. Anguilla is home to a Greg Norman designed championship golf course and the new, state-of-the-art Anguilla Tennis Academy. The island hosts over thirty-three beaches to suit every traveler, some of which are still very secluded and romantic and others that offer restaurants, water sports and activities. You can also fill your day with visits to art galleries, museums, spas or experience the thrill of horseback riding. Sailing, fishing, diving and snorkeling for every age group and every experience level await you. Or simply enjoy the pleasures of relaxing in the warmth of the sun. The island offers relaxation or activity in any dosage you desire.
GETTING TO ANGUILLA BY AIR OR SEA:
The best way to get to Anguilla is to fly into either St. Maarten (SXM) and take a second 8-minute flight to Anguilla (AXA). Or fly into Puerto Rico and take a 55-minute flight to Anguilla.
OR, what most visitors find more economical, fly to St. Maarten (SXM) (airport is on the Dutch side of the island) and take a private or shared boat charter from the nearby aqua dock to Anguilla's Blowing Point Ferry Terminal. You can also take taxi from the St. Maarten (SXM) airport to the island's French side, known as St. Martin, and take the public scheduled ferry from Marigot to Anguilla's Blowing Point Ferry Terminal. The ferry is just a 20-minute ride and once you land Beaches Edge is a short taxi ride or you can rent a car.
How many people are in your party and the time of day you arrive will determine which method of travel is most economical and convenient for you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we can advise you.
