After a long journey with a few bumps in the road we arrived on Anguilla. We were greeted with warmth and friendliness right off the bat at Blowing Point and taken to our "Home Away" Villa Nirvana. We were welcomed by the delightful team of Kathryne and Gifford Connor and shown around our beautiful accommodations, given snacks and then served a most magnificent dinner by Chef Tyrone Hughes. He is the most amazing chef. We liked him so much we had him come back 2 more times. His food is exquisite, beautifully presented and very well priced. He and his staff ( #3 girl Malainia) were perfectly lovely. We would have had him come back every night if we could have, however he was already scheduled elsewhere.
Our villa Nirvana was just amazing! The house itself is a very beautiful, clean and comfortable space, we were a party of 8, stayed for 10 days and hated to leave. The bedrooms were spacious with large ensuite bathrooms and very comfortable beds. Our living space inside and out was perfectly lovely. We never felt crowded ( even when we were all in the kitchen, which is huge!) The views were spectacular! Sunrises and sunsets, just amazing, we even got to see the "the green flash" on our last night there! We spent most of the time when we were at the house at our outside dining/living room area. It was so beautiful out there. The pool was a little chilly but very refreshing and enjoyed by all. We were very well cared for by our house keeper Rolyn and property managers Kathryne and Gifford. The owners and property manager went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed including a specialty beer that they had to get from St Marrten!
We never felt unsafe anywhere on the island. The people were friendly ( and it felt like a very genuine friendliness not a fake give me your money friendliness), and warm. Everyone we met was just so nice! The beaches are really very beautiful and the water is amazing! The beach bars and restaurants are lots of fun. We enjoyed an ATV ride, a lovely bird/nature walk and a snorkeling trip ( we just loved Pinkie). All of our guides were well informed and seemed to enjoy sharing their knowledge, their love and pride of Anguilla. Most people that we met would tell you they cannot imagine living anywhere else! We spent most afternoons snorkeling or swimming at one of the many beaches. Anguilla has done an amazing job recovering from the horrible hurricane in 2017. An A+ recommendation!
