Clean modern house with a view of Meads Bay, West End. This is a great location with 5-min walk to Meads Bay - the best beach in Anguilla and some of the best restaurants on the island. And just 2-min walk to Best buy - the best grocery store .

The space

The price is listed for one bedroom with a queensize bed. If you are interested in renting the second room as well, please send me a message. We charge a small fee per guest when more than 2 quests in the house, to give you access to the other bedroom(s).

The house is white inside and out, and it is a bright modern and open space with a wraparound veranda. The kitchen, living room, and dining room are all in one open large room with high ceilings and big windows all around. My favorite place to hang out is on the couch and chairs on the veranda - overlooking Meads Bay and listening to the birdsong and sounds of nature. On some days you can also hear the waves in Meads Bay.

If you want to rent more than one bedroom we can accommodate that for an extra fee. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms total - 1 king, 1 queen, and 2 twin beds.

Guest access

You have access to all common areas and you are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking and to hangout in the living room or on the lovely wraparound veranda. You are also welcome to use the washing machine, and we have good Wifi.

If you let us know when you arrive, we will have one of our favorite taxi drivers pick you up at the ferry terminal or airport. We encourage you to arrive before the sun goes down so you have a chance to orient yourself and enjoy the view from the veranda. You are welcome to check in later if needed, just let us know (we can always leave a key in the lockbox by the door).

Interaction with guests

I live half the year in Boston and half the year in Anguilla as I own a restaurant and beach bar in Sandy Ground called Dad's.

When I'm away you will have the whole house to yourself, and when I'm in Anguilla I tend to only be around in the mornings as I spend most of my time at Dad's. Also my bedroom and bathroom has a separate entrance so I make sure to give you your privacy.

I am happy to help you with recommendations and suggestions and I will give you my contact number so you can reach me at any time. If I'm away you can still text and call me anytime, but I will also give you the contact info for my friend that is looking after the house.

Other things to note

We have AC in all the bedrooms. In the living room-diningroom-kitchen area we have windows in three directions and a couple ceiling fans, but no AC. Since we are up on a hill we have a good breeze coming through the house.

There is no TV at this point, but you have good Wifi.

Even when Alex is not on the Island, she is a thoughtful, informative, and gracious host, along with her supportive team on the Island [The D brothers]. There is no exaggeration that this is the PERFECT location on the Island. The trees provide you with isolation, but you are a 2-5 minute walk to the beach, grocery and other stores, and restaurants. Here home is larger than we expected and the goats will visit you on the veranda, which is a nice location to escape the heat and the Wi-Fi is excellent there and there is an electric outlet. Even though I have friends that live on the Island, I would only stay at Alex’s home. Travel Tips -- The sunset lounge at the Four Seasons is pretty and a nice treat, even though it is a little pricey. While you cannot book activities through the hotels unless you are guest, they will provide you with information. For example, you can schedule yoga on Meads Beach with Sammie Green [(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)]. Give Best Buy Alex’s 264 number so that she can receive points. Across from the gas station [make a right when you leave Alex’s road], there is a wonderful art gallery and gift shop – Devonish Art Gallery. Next door to the Art Gallery are an ATM and the best carrot cake at the grocery store. DO NOT rent a car from Cleaves. He was blocked / black listed by the Whats App and they will block your service with them. We found D & D and Junie’s to be the most reasonable on the Island and provide excellent service. For Solo Travelers there is not an issue staying at Alex’s home. I enjoyed the food at Ocean Echo Restaurant, but the french fries at Straw Hat are the best I ever had. If you order food at either restaurant you can sit on their beach chairs and umbrellas all day for free. TIPPING is similar to Europe. A service charge is usually added at all food establishments [beach bars too]. Prices at Best Buy and the grocery store with the best carrot cake are listed in EC / Eastern Caribbean currency and not US. You will not need an electric outlet converter. We are glad we brought wash cloths.

What it is: fantastic value, super location, very clean and comfortable. Had everything needed for a nice visit. What is wasn't: It's not luxury. Don't look for a manicured lawn and garden. Would I rebook? Yes!

Alex was an amazing host and we loved staying at her house! We stayed a week on the island, enjoyed being steps away from Mead's Bay and all the great restaurants the island has to offer. Alex's house has the perfect location, plenty of open space, and comfortable beds! We would love to come back and stay with her! Thanks again Alex!

Great value for money! I would recomend to rent a car to get around. Contact Judd at Anguilla watersport for the car. He is very flexibel and will deliver and pick up the car where you want.

Alex is very welcoming and helpful. She recommended some great places to try and provided great directions. Her place has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We very much enjoyed an evening at her restaurant getting to know her and some of the locals!

Was sent specifics for the home prior to arrival. Once at the house in Anguilla there was specific instructions for the home and local area attractions on the table for us. We were provided lots of good water in a dispenser. It hot and humid in Anguilla and main room does not have air conditioning which added to experiencing the local flavor. Most homes here do not have it, bedrooms though did, they were very comfortable for sleeping. Each morning we had local roaming rooster or chickens on the porch, we loved that. Nice view of Meads bay and beautiful sunsets. Was best vacation ever shared with 3 great friends! Alex was not at the home during our stay, she did however have local persons we could contact and was very responsive to email when needed. The home had cute beach chairs and towels, a plus for us. Lots of laundry line too. Fun time playing cards at the dining table every night. I would stay there in a heart beat if ever down the island way again.
