My husband and I visited Anguilla for the first time, along with our adult kids and their SO's (8 total) in March '17. We've been to many Caribbean Islands, but Anguilla is, by far, our most beloved.
First things first - a huge thank you to the hosts, Paul and Elise; they were so incredibly gracious and attentive in helping us plan EVERY detail of our trip. They truly do go above and beyond and treated us like family.
We opted to take the boat Calypso to Anguilla from SXM and it was great fun(highly recommend)!
Gifford met us at the dock with our rental cars and escorted us to Villa Nirvana. Upon our arrival, I think all our mouths dropped open, in sync, from the beauty that surrounded us. Kate greeted us warmly and surprised us w delicious BBQ, wine, beer and soda's. After a long day of travel it was much appreciated. Indeed, as Paul promised, we were in PARADISE!
Villa Nirvana is quite gorgeous, yet it feels very much like a home. The villa is centrally located so everything is easy to get to. The indoor and outdoor spaces are beautifully appointed and the views are spectacular. The kitchen has everything you could ever possibly want or need. We chose to cook and enjoy a big breakfast at the villa every morning to start our day. Eating outside, first thing in the morning, to take in the views and plan our day was glorious. The infinity pool wow!! I would float and gaze out upon the ocean... dreaming of moving there permanently. We put the large outdoor grill to use two nights as well. On the second floor, where the main master suite is, there is also a beautiful outdoor sitting area which we used often to enjoy the sunsets and cocktails.
One day we returned to the villa to find a box of chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge which was so thoughtful. Rolyn makes sure everything is clean and orderly every day.
I can't tell you about our favorite anything as every day was the "best day ever"!
Some highlights: Tapas and drinks at Meza; dinner upstairs at Veya. Dancing at Dad's and Pumphouse. Manoah Hotel at Shoal Bay East for lunch. Corner Pizza -just GO! Horesback riding on the beach with Tonia. Sandy Island is great fun. Garvey's at Rendezvous Bay. Blanchards Beach Shack - great lunch. Meads Bay - wow! Little Bay - jump the cliffs! Pimms and Mango's for dinner. St Bart's for the day via Anguilla Air Services makes it affordable. Finally, Anguillian's are so dear and friendly - get to know them. We can hardly wait to return!
