In Anguilla you can move seamlessly from sushi and cocktails to barbeque on the beach. Our 16-mile island has no barriers, no “no-go” areas, and we welcome visitors to visit every inch of our home and take part in local activities like Carnival and Boat Racing.

and visit each of our 33 incredible public beaches. Rate the rum punch at as many of our independent, quirky beach bars as your liver can stand! Feast on our justifiably famous food (equally good in a five-star restaurant or from one of our roadside barbeques). Dance yourself silly and become a fan of one of our incredible artists – because on this tiny island the bounty of musical talent is unbelievable. We hope you enjoy your stay with us and that True Anguilla becomes an essential part of your visit. Go forth and explore, and you will truly enjoy Anguilla. TRUDY & ORRETT

GETTING TO ANGUILLA JUST GOT BETTER One of the special things about Anguilla is that and most reasonable destinations to fly into from large airplanes don’t fly here – you have to transfer North America, South America, United Kingdom, by smaller planes, speed-boats or ferry from St. and Europe. Travellers embrace this stage of the Maarten (SXM), Puerto Rico(SJU) or Antigua journey, knowing it means they will be arriving in (ANU), three of the Caribbean’s best-serviced an off-the-beaten-track destination.

BY OCEAN

LOCAL TRANSFERS The ferries run all day between 7.30am and 6.15pm (departing Anguilla). The first ferry to Anguilla from St. Martin departs at 8.15am and the last at 7.00pm. Ferries run approximately every 30 to 40 minutes, and the trip takes about 25 minutes and costs $20 plus taxes each way.

JUMPING ON THE local Ferry is a popular way to arrive, especially for those familiar with the island and/or interested in catching a glimpse of the French side of St. Martin [and real ‘travellers’]. Simply grab a taxi from Princess Juliana International Airport and ask for the Anguilla Ferry Port in Marigot – a 10 to 20 minute (depending on traffic) drive. The Anguilla ferries depart every 45 minutes.

VIP TRANSFERS Ask about charted services – if your party is 6 or more – you may find that a chartered transfer on either boat or plane not only makes you feel like a rock star, but is also financially astute!

TRANSFERRING FROM PRINCESS Juliana International Airport via a scheduled or charter boat service is easy, and there are lots of good providers to choose from. Arrive in Anguilla via speed-boat and let your vacation begin as soon as you step on-board! Simply call or go online and book your transfer with a company like Calypso Charters, Sea Pro Charters, or GB Express. Once you clear St. Maarten immigration and collect your bags you will be met in the

24

www.trueanguilla.com

arrival hall of the airport by a representative who will transfer you and your bags to the “Anguilla dock” just a few minutes away via taxi. As you are now leaving St. Maarten, you will clear customs and join your boat. About 18 minutes later you will arrive in Anguilla. If you are travelling in a large group we suggest you contact a destination management specialist such as Blue Sea Anguilla or Malliouhana Travel and Tours to coordinate the process.

BY AIR

TRADEWINDS AVIATION OPERATES a first class “shuttle” from SJU to Anguilla on Swiss built Pilatus PC-12 jet-prop aircraft flown by two pilots with air-conditioning, a pressurized cabin and plenty of room for luggage. You can enjoy beautiful views of Puerto Rico

and the British Virgin Islands during the comfortable 45 minute flight. They offer a VIP service at SJU ensuring a swift and stress-free immigration and baggage transfer procedure, and operate their own passenger lounge with complimentary refreshments and free WiFi.

ANGUILLA AIR SERVICES, headed by the experienced Captain Carl Thomas, operates a stress-free air bridge between SXM and Anguilla via charter or scheduled service. Arriving passengers are met at the transfer desk prior to customs and immigrations, where AAS staff will facilitate a speedy immigration and baggage transfer procedure (just one member of your party needs to identify bags) before being escorted upstairs to the departure lounge

and transferred to Anguilla without having to leave the airport. AAS staff say that, on average, from stepping off your international flight to landing in Anguilla’s Clayton J Lloyd international airport, it takes 45 minutes (flying to Anguilla takes approximately 7 minutes). AAS runs 3 scheduled services a day in season, at times convenient to meeting the most popular flights, or you can charter the whole plane (maximum 9 passengers) for $480 one way.

ven if this is your first time in Anguilla, some of our people, places and beaches may look familiar when “you reach.”* That’s because the island hosts many photographers and film crews year-round. Art Directors use it as an exquisite backdrop for their product or excellent alignment for their brand and recently a number of US and European TV shows have featured the people and landscape of Anguilla as the stars of their shows.

30

www.trueanguilla.com

Mimi Gratton, of Blue Sea Anguilla, the island’s leading film production service company, has been working with film crews for over twenty years. Her first assignment was a photo shoot for Davidoff’s iconic “Cool Water” fragrance, and since then she has continued to work with famous photographers as they capture beautiful images of the world’s leading brands – including Louis Vuitton and Victoria’s Secret – against Anguillian backdrops like


Shoal Bay East

Sandy Island, Prickly Pear and the long, native grasses of the far west end of the island. Explaining the appeal, Mimi says: “It may seem a long way to come to take an image, but it’s not just about the backdrop. Art Directors have said it’s about the light here. It just has a magical quality that photographers crave, and the quality of the images taken here is just incredible.” Anguilla’s beaches, activities and people CONTINUED...


P E O P L E A N D T H E I R B E AC H E S

“'An Island Parish' is very popular in the UK and will introduce Anguilla to whole new audience and give a true taste of island life. Production went from 6 to 8 episodes and we are so delighted to have this opportunity to showcase Anguilla, the community, and Anguilla not just as a holiday destination. It will go to air in the UK in February and March 2017 and will be a ‘must watch’ for Anguillians in the UK and island enthusiasts.”

were the stars of Vineyard Vines’ 2016 summer catalogue. The Massachusetts clothing company’s owners, Shep and Ian Murray, have a very strong connection to Anguilla, as they have been vacationing on the island for many years, and the idea of featuring the people and the beaches they loved was the basis of a stunning campaign focused on real life Anguilla personalities doing real life things – including Reggae icon Bankie Banx, Anne and Peter Parles of Straw Hat restaurant, Nori Evoy of Anguilla Beaches

and Scott and Shannon Kircher from Frangipani Beach Resort & Villa. The beautiful catalogue has since become a collectors’ item on island. The last few years have also seen an upturn in international TV shows being shot here. Sweden paved the way, filming a dating/ reality show called “Ex on the Beach” in one of Anguilla’s luxury villas. Over two seasons, their contestants enjoyed all Anguilla has to offer – including plenty of time spent on quiet Shoal Bay West, close to Johnny’s Beach Bar at Trattoria Tramonto.

Anguilla Literary Festival

Anne & Peter Parles with Vineyard Vines Catalogue

In early 2016, Fox TV and reality show guru Mark Burnett produced “Coupled” here, and it was clear from the outset that Anguilla was THE star of the show. Breathtaking HD footage of our beaches, offshore cays and luxurious accommodations easily outshone even the most beautiful contestants. The UK’s BBC2 chose Anguilla to feature in its long-running, popular cultural documentary series “An Island Parish.” The crew from Tiger Aspect Productions spent over 4 months on island filming 8 half-hour episodes, highlighting

Mimi Gratton

important religious activities, events like Festival Del Mar and the Anguilla Literary Festival as well as environmental activities such as turtle tagging, fish counts, iguana release, and bird counts on offshore cays – including the remote, rarely filmed and incredibly beautiful, Sombrero Island. Airing early 2017, the show follows the lives of a number of local persons, including Bishop Errol Brooks, Oluwakemi Linda Banks, HE The Governor Christina Scott, and many others, including staff of the Anguilla National Trust (ANT) and this magazine's publisher, Trudy Nixon.

“ALL OF ANGUILLA’S beaches are beautiful but Meads Bay is particularly special to me. One of my fondest childhood memories is of going to Meads Bay on August Thursday to watch my first boat race. I was 4, and in those days there was nothing on the beach, and I remember standing at the church in the West End, where I grew up and went to school, and looking at the

tops of the white sails of the boats in the Bay. Years later, the tradition of Boat Race at Meads Bay on August Thursday is still going strong and the beach is a little busier! We have a wonderful Meads Bay Boat Race festival on that day – and I urge everyone to join in and experience it.” Cardigan Connor, Parliamentary Secretary and former Hampshire CCC Cricketer

“SANDY GROUND IS my childhood home, where generations of children have learned to swim, build sandcastles, jump off the jetty, fish, and build brown paper kites to fly at Easter. The harbor played a huge part in everyone’s lives, from fishing boats to wood-hull cargo ships bearing goods and fresh fruit from neighbouring islands, and continues to this day. Although over time the size and type of boats may have changed the essence of the harbour remains the same,

even as more leisure yachts and speedboats now bob in the water. Restaurants now beckon patrons with everything from fine dining to pub style menus and live music. With so much happening on the sea and on the land, the beach itself may be overlooked. Sandy Ground’s soft white sand and flat, calm waters are a favourite among visitors and residents looking for a refreshing start or end to the day.” Catherine Orchard, Anguilla Villa Company

“KATOUCHE BAY IS part of my daily morning walk. Descending down from the coastal path on North Hill, the bay appears unspoiled and tempting, fringed with seagrape and palms. It's a great beach for seeing pelicans feeding, or – around the time of the autumn full moons – the mass migration of hermit crabs to the sea. A hidden bay, accessible at the East end of the

A bit off the beaten track, but with plenty of shade and natural wonders for children to explore, Katouche Bay offers an authentic and untouched Anguilla experience.” HE The Governor, Christina Scott

The cocktail bar and lounge area takes full advantage of an elevated position and features entertainment between 3 and 6 most evenings – definitely one of “the” places to be for sundowners or a chic night out in Anguilla this season. Complimentary transportation is laid on between both resorts and the Golf Club house, (a lovely walk, too, when you're feeling energetic!) and gives guests easy access to a staggering choice of dining outlets including favourites like Le Bistro at Santorini, Tokyo Bay, Beach Bar and Café Med at CuisinArt, Italia at the Golf Club House and the new dining options – The Yacht Club (breakfast and dinner) and Breezes Beach Bar (beachside lunch spot) at the Reef. Amenities at the new resort include a state of the art fitness centre, Sunrise Yoga/Meditation, Aqua Bikes and a signing arrangement with Anguilla Water Sports for on property snorkeling, glass bottom kayaking and paddleboarding, and access to the Aquapark – a fun, floating water park – just a stroll along Merrywing to Cove Bay. Guest of The Reef can enjoy unique spa treatments pool side, or visit the award winning Venus Spa. The CuisinArt Family has blossomed. The Reef is vibrant, fun and modern, CuisinArt Resort is classic, intimate and gastronomic, and both properties share the same independent spirit, Anguilla pride and exceptional service ethos.

HOW TO VISIT

Non-resident visitors are very welcome. Enter both properties through the Golf Course entrance on the West End Road then follow the signs! Left for CuisinArt or straight on (alongside hole 18) for The Reef.

DID YOU KNOW...? Shoal Bay Beach Villas is a Certified Turtle Hotel? Owner Kathy and her family team work closely with the Anguilla National Trust to ensure that nesting turtles are protected and will continue to lay on Shoal Bay East and return year after year.

IT’S NO WONDER that Shoal Bay Villas is one of the island’s most enduringly popular places to stay – from the moment you arrive at this beautifully maintained, family run, beachfront haven you can do nothing but relax. Watch the sunrise, walk the beach, then spend the day in quiet contemplation of which of Anguilla’s many restaurants you should enjoy that evening. The most taxing decision of your day should be whether to book an appointment with Dekner, the resort’s resident massage therapist, or go snorkeling on Shoal Bay East’s teaming offshore reef.

Zemi Beach House Resort and Spa commands an exceptional position on world famous Shoal Bay East and has garnered rave reviews since it opened in early 2016. Lushly landscaped, this boutique resort also boasts two beautiful pools (one adult only), a kids club, 2 restaurants and 3 bars including the island’s only Rhum Room, a gorgeous,

intimate spot where you can enjoy aged rums and late night entertainment in cool comfort. The Hotel’s signature Thai House Spa is outstanding – based in an exquisite, authentic Thai house, this is one of the most unique and beautiful spas in the world, and its proximity to the ancient Fountain historical site makes for a truly spiritual experience.

ANNE AND PETER ON 20 YEARS For twenty years we’ve been given a unique opportunity – to grow older alongside our guests: getting their feedback, enjoying their support and sometimes organizing their children’s weddings! We think this is what helps us to keep the restaurant fresh and relevant after all these years. In Anguilla, seasons are not defined by the weather – more by our returning guests. We can almost mark our calendars by the arrival of certain families. We look forward to seeing them at the same time each year, and they have become part of the restaurant’s extended family.

traw Hat owners, husband and wife team Anne and Peter Parles, say they owe their longevity and success to their incredible staff – many of whom have been with them since they opened, and the special relationship they have with their repeat guests. Straw Hat Restaurant has been an institution in Anguilla since its early days located in a charming Caribbean house that sat on stilts over the water, to its current stunning incarnation at Frangipani Resort – where they overlook the powdery white sand and turquoise waters of world famous Meads Bay. It has consistently been described as one of Anguilla’s “must do” dining experiences – quite an achievement on an island Fodor’s describes as “a culinary Shangri-La.” The atmosphere is fabulous, the staff warm and friendly, the food delicious – make sure you pop in and say hi, because you’re sure to make or meet a friend or two at Straw Hat.

Festival Del Mar in Island Harbour

sland Harbour is the heart of the East End and has become a local hot-spot as it’s the perfect place to relax over reasonably priced beers and tasty local food. The tiny village becomes a bustling metropolis once a year, when on Easter Saturday and Sunday it is home to the fabulous Festival del Mar, but you can catch the flavour of that special event all year round if you go to watch the fishermen come in with their catch. Try one of the small restaurants that fringe the bay and you will be sure to see some familiar faces. Look out for Lauren at Falcon’s Nest, stop a while and enjoy the friendly vibe and mix of locals and tourists at Everett’s (also known as the Pelican Beach Bar) or try some of the authentic Anguillian cuisine with your toes in the sand at any of these fun stops.

SANDBAR, ON THE beach in vibrant Sandy Ground is an elegantly casual, super-friendly spot enjoyed equally by locals and tourists.

TOP TIP

OCEAN ECHO IS a few steps away from the Four Seasons Resort, at the western end of Meads Bay. This is one of our favourite spots for a supremely comfortable day lounging and lunching on the beach. Dillon and team provide loungers and umbrellas for the use of guests and you can choose to dine in the restaurant or on the beach. On Sundays make sure you reserve a table to hear the dulcet tones of Omalie 360. Ocean Echo is also open for dinner with a bigger menu.

TOP TIP Ocean Echo's Dillon may be famous for his Rumzie, but all his cocktails are delicious. We also adore the seafood chowder – one of the best on island.

If you are looking for fine Caribbean flavours delivered with modern flair, look no further than this fantastic family-run restaurant.

he buzz on the beaches is that there has never been a better time to sample the cuisine in our 5-star resorts. Here are some highlights for the 2017 season.

MALLIOUHANA HOTEL & Spa welcomes Executive Chef Mark Alvarez who brings a wealth of experience in authentic Caribbean cuisine. His new menu concept for the stunning oceanview restaurant features the plentiful seafood provided by Anguilla’s waters and plenty of local produce. The Auberge Resorts signature Food of Place program will also take place in January 2017 with an interactive boat and farm to table dinner featuring fresh local products from the fishermen and small farmers who supply the property's kitchens.

AT ZEMI BEACH House, new Executive Chef Roberto Leoci will be working his magic at both the fine dining Stone and the more casual "sand between your toes" 20 Knots beachfront restaurant. After dreaming of a “move to paradise” he’s in Anguilla after a

WE ARE DELIGHTED to welcome Four Seasons Resort and Residences to the neighbourhood, a leading luxury hotel brand with a reputation for top-notch service, philanthropy and encouraging sustainability that has won numerous industry accolades. Non-resident guests are encouraged to visit the resort’s bars and restaurants and see for themselves how the beautiful property (formerly Viceroy Anguilla) has undergone a subtle transformation (think evolution rather than revolution), making it even more special.

The famous Sunset Bar has been refreshed and is still the hot spot for a cool drink. Casual Bamboo Beach Bar on Meads now has a spacious dining platform with views of the entire bay, and is open for drinks, lunch and dinner with regular live music. Signature restaurant Coba has been restyled, and this “vibrant seafood grill” with its incredible ocean views now boasts the island’s only ceviche bar, also fresh grilled seafood and steaks and tempting dishes for two like Seaweed-Salt Crusted Local Whole Snapper and 20 Mile Paella. THERE IS AN outstanding selection of gourmet choices at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa and its new sister property The Reef (see pages 4-5 & 44-45). At Tokyo Bay, Chef Joe Richardson is garnering rave reviews for his Japanese food, prepared in a manner that respects tradition with a modern, alluring twist – always allowing the food to be the star.

hopping in Anguilla is unique, boutique – and most importantly, personal! Here are some of our fabulous shops and friendly shopkeepers as well as an introduction to Anguilla’s best gift items and the people who make them.

WHAT WE LOVE Chunky silver bracelets and stunning Chagrin pieces

BIJOUX IS A family business, and Thomas and his family have “sister” shops in the neighboring islands of St. Martin and St. Barths. This pretty boutique collection definitely has French flair, and the owner designs most of the clothes and jewelry for each new season, so there is always something new and exciting in the shops. Their Sandy Ground store stays open late and its “Aladdin’s Cave” cave interior tempts

diners who have headed into Anguilla’s night-life capital for drinks or dinner to come browse up until 10 at night in-season. Unique and affordable jewelry including a stunning collection of Larimar (the jewel of the Caribbean), bags, accessories and fabulous French fashion make Bijoux a fun place to be. Their range of gorgeous children’s clothes is too cute to resist. Bijoux also has shops in Shoal Bay East and Meads Bay.


Beachwear

SEASPRAY BOUTIQUE WITH its adjacent Smoothie Shop is a familiar and colourful sight on the Sandy Ground roundabout, and proprietor Pam Miller can often be spotted sitting outside surrounded by paints, handembellishing affordable local gifts and souvenirs that children and adults alike enjoy. You will never have a problem getting children to this shop, as they always enjoy the smoothies. Pam, who left the cold of Canada to work on a tall ship that sailed the Caribbean before settling in Anguilla, is very knowledgeable about the island and dispenses great advice on where to go and what to do.

Hats & Handbags

Original Sterling Silver Jewelry Larimar Caribbean Stone

WHAT WE LOVE Pam’s handembellished shot glasses – she’s happy to tailor them for special events.

TOP TIP

Try her famous rum punch – it has plenty of nutmeg and other special ingredients. Enjoy one whilst browsing or take a bottle home to enjoy later.

WHAT WE LOVE Stunning Melia Pearl and natural fabric necklaces. Beachy-chic personified, and of course the sand jewelry for precious memories

LIMIN’ BOUTIQUE IS the brainchild of Ken (whose family business was an ice rink) and Renee (an ex figure skater) who moved from “frozen water to blue water” to follow their dream – to open a special gift shop on Anguilla. Their enthusiasm for the island is very

evident and you can see the thought that has gone into every item: from their bestselling custom sand jewelry, made with various sands from around the island (Meads Bay is the top seller), to the gorgeous clothes and jewelry modeled with flair by Renee.

A VISIT TO one of the super cute Irie Life shops (Back Street and Sandy Ground) is a must. The creation of its easy-going and ultra stylish proprietor, Lynne Picard, the shop is a shrine to all things Irie. Boasting the largest and most colourful selection of tee shirts and caps on island, along with a fantastic array of clothing, sunglasses, hats and jewelry, this is a True Anguilla shopping experience not to be missed.

WHAT WE LOVE Jams World – cool, colourful, comfortable – this is the ultimate resort-wear range. Often modeled by Lynne herself!

ART LOVERS WILL enjoy the island’s eclectic mix of galleries and artists, and you can have a lot of fun driving and browsing for art. A fabulous place to visit (by appointment, though – see page 99 for details – is the island’s Ani Art Academy, where local students learn to paint in a photorealist style. Incredible drawings and paintings by the students are available for sale.

ANOTHER MUST-DO IS to see the colourful work at the gorgeous Lynne Bernbaum Art Gallery in Sandy Ground. Time it right (we suggest early evening), and you may even be offered a glass of wine!

“LUXURIOUS MEMORIES OF Paradise” is the perfect tagline for Tara Lamonte’s Anguillainspired range AXA Signature Jewellry. Tara fell in love with Anguilla on her first visit, then wanted to buy a gold piece as a memento, but couldn’t find one. Inspired, she went on to design and produce a range of quality gold and silver pieces that includes earrings, bracelets, charms, necklaces, rings and belly chains.

“I wrote One Way Ticket to answer so many who asked what it was like to leave America for Anguilla – forever. It’s an invitation to visit Anguilla, to escape to paradise even for a few days, and to take along a good book for the trip.” — MELINDA K.M. GODDARD

IF YOU NEED a book for the beach (or to remind you of Anguilla) look no further than Melinda Goddard’s “One Way Ticket”. This entertaining read details the highs (and lows)

of living the dream and takes the reader on the trip from living in America to buying land and building a home in Anguilla. Find it in bookshops all over Anguilla or order online at her website.

WHAT GOES WITH a good book? Great Wine. Les Grands Vins de France has a fabulous selection of wines from all over the world, and both Nathalie and Donnette, who work in the shop, are happy to answer questions or give recommendations. They also sell selected rums, cognacs, single malts and caviar. Ask about one of their special wine tasting events.

IF YOUR CHILDREN love animals, a visit to the Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF) to pet and help socialize the puppies and kittens available for adoption is a great activity. The Schaefers from New Jersey have been visiting Anguilla for 18 years.

DAY TRIP TO ST. BARTHS

K K

enroy Herbert, of Leviticus Lifestyle loves every inch of his island home Anguilla, but when he wants a change of scenery he hops on an Anguilla Air Services scheduled service to the island of St Barth’s which he says “is like a part of Southern France broke off and floated to the Caribbean.” Here is his guide to a perfect day trip to our stylish sister island.

1

8 AM ARRIVE at Clayton J Lloyd International Airport (AXA) and check in with Captain Carl, his wife Nanette or one of their friendly team. Moments later board your plane for an 8.30 departure.

3

AS YOU CLEAR customs you will find plenty of options to explore. You can hire an electric car, a Mini Moke or take a taxi. If I am going to have a few drinks I like to book a driver for the day and this can be arranged in advance.

112

www.trueanguilla.com

ENJOY THE 15 minute flight which takes you over Sint Maarten & St Martin and across turquoise waters to the pretty, rugged coastline of St Barth’s with its myriad small islands and outcrops. Admire the red roofs of Gustavia, before landing on one of the Caribbean’s most photographed runways, Gustaf III in the village of St. Jean.


S P E N D A DAY / st. barths

4

FIRST, DRIVE OVER the hill to Gustavia. The capitals beautiful harbour is filled with luxury boats and I like to go to Le Bar de L'Oubli for breakfast and people watching (they have the best mimosas!). Then spend some time browsing the town which is famous for its shopping. It has everything you want, from hi-end jewellery and designer fashion to art, beachwear and souvenirs.

5

NEXT TOUR SOME of the island’s country side and notable beaches (like Anguilla you can drive around it in 45 minutes) especially, Grosvenor’s Beach and La Saline, before heading back to St. Jean where you have a selection of lively beach front restaurants to while away the rest of the day.

NOTE Return time for a scheduled day excursion is 4.30pm.

THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME

o trip to Anguilla is complete without visiting one or more of our offshore cays. Charter a boat from Seapro or Calypso and chart your own course. These experienced Anguillian captains know just how to design the day to suit your needs. A word of advice: however comfortable your boat is, make sure to step off of it and into one of our fantastic desert island beach bars. Make sure you spend quality time at gorgeous Little Bay.

YOU CAN ALSO get out to Prickly Pear as part of a shared activity. Anguilla’s two charming sail boats run shared excursions every week, weather permitting. Captain Rollins of Chocolat and Captain Laurie of Tradition will make sure you have a wonderful time. These excursions include drinks on board and lunch.

ERYN AND MARK TILLMAN

e visited nine Caribbean islands in search of the perfect wedding spot, and nothing compared to the Frangipani in Anguilla. Small enough to be intimate, large enough to accommodate everyone, we bought out the entire resort, allowing all our guests to become fast friends. With an infinity pool overlooking the pristine white sands, whether our friends chose to play in the pool or relax on the beach, the layout of the property allowed everyone to be together. The icing on the cake was having the island’s top restaurant [Straw Hat] on property. We used the resort’s boat for a group outing, had a BBQ and S’mores Bonfire on the beach and even turned one of the guest rooms into a hospitality suite to provide the ultimate experience to our friends who had traveled so far to celebrate with us. The warm and fun people of Anguilla are what made our wedding so special and unique. Tropical Treat's homemade Ice Cream and Cart was a unique and refreshing treat for a warm Caribbean evening, Paper grilling an authentic Anguillan BBQ on the sand at our resort, Scott and

Shannon’s enthusiasm and dedication to ensure the ultimate resort experience, Peter and the entire Straw Hat crew for masterfully overseeing our flawlessly executed reception, Tania providing stunning space at the Malliouhana to get ready on the big day, Darvin Mussington, whose vocals rival Louis Armstrong, along with Keira were better than any wedding band I’ve heard in the States, Chloe for making sure Picante had extra corn on hand for their world famous Chili-Queso Corn on the Cob that I wanted all my guests to try. And no one can capture the spectacular colors of the island, or put you at ease, like Derrys Richardson. One of my favorite moments was right after the ceremony when my new husband and I were going to run over to another part of the island for additional photos. No one could find their shoes. So Derrys said "we'll do it True Anguilla style... barefoot" and the 3 of us jumped into the car barefoot and laughing as Derrys took us to a few of the most stunning photographic spots on the island.

y family stayed at Beaches Edge for my wedding. This location is just amazing. The photos do not begin to describe how beautiful the location really is. The ocean is breathtaking, the rooms are well appointed and the living room/kitchen well stocked. In addition to the villas having all you need, the location is really convenient. It is very close to the ferry and Meads Bay but also privately located so you feel like you are on the island by yourself. What sets the villas apart is the excellent service provided by the villa manager Michelle Owens. Everything that we needed was attended to. Staying at Beaches Edge made our special time a cherished memory.

hen choosing the location for our destination wedding, Anguilla was the first and only choice for us. From the unparalleled white sand beaches to the laid-back vibe, it's no wonder why Anguilla is near and dear to the hearts of newlyweds young and old. We chose Blue Sea Anguilla to plan our wedding because of their unique ability to blend Caribbean beach-chic with the elegance and modern sophistication of a 21st century destination wedding. We had the pleasure of working with Amelia VanterpoolKubisch, whose broad personal knowledge of the island's vendors and rapid communication

126

www.trueanguilla.com

eased the slightest anxiety of planning a wedding 1,700 miles away from home. If we had a question or concern, Amelia would respond to our emails within minutes. When we visited the island a few months prior to our wedding, she was there with us every step of the way, to thoroughly ensure our vision was met. When our wedding day finally came, our expectations were not only met but surpassed. From the ceremony to the food to the live music, we are still getting compliments a year later, and we have Blue Sea Anguilla to thank for every detail. If we could do it again (and we loved it so much, we wish we could), we would not change a thing.�

just had my wedding at the Straw Hat Restaurant. It was absolutely PERFECTION in every way. It was truly the most magical day. As an event planner myself at Midtown Loft and Terrace in NYC, the second I reached out to Peter, I knew I was in the BEST hands. Peter, Ann and his assistant Doris were truly unreal, and the utmost professionals in every way. DJ Sugar was also amazing and the dance floor was hopping all night!!! The food at Straw Hat was absolute perfection, and all our guests commented that it was the absolute best wedding food/meals they had ever had. I cannot thank the entire staff enough for the most magical day of my life. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it and reliving it again. THANK YOU to Straw Hat for giving Bryce and I the most magical wedding of all time!!!

NEIL AND WENDY Freeman are from Chicago, although Neil grew up in Miami (maybe that’s why he has a taste for the island heat!), and have enjoyed Caribbean vacations for many years. They first heard about Anguilla 22 years ago, when they learned it had two of the top 10 resorts in the Caribbean. Curious, they came, tried it and loved it. They loved it so much, they kept returning; initially staying in hotels, then rental villas (liking the privacy they afforded), before deciding to build their own home, the stunning 4-bedroom Villa Alegria. They made the wise decision to work with people who had experience in the Caribbean, including the late Kevin Gumbs and Susan Butcher, who had designed the Four Seasons in Nevis. Wendy was involved in all of the design and decorating CONTINUED...

NEIL AND WENDY ON ANGUILLA Before you invest, know that you love the island. Honestly, there are easier ways to make money! But if you love Anguilla, it will always be a place you want to come home to. We love that it is a British island, they are the best destinations (secure/low crime) in the Caribbean. If you want to get away, Anguilla is the perfect place to be, whether it’s for three days or three months. If you want uncrowded, laid-back luxury, beautiful beaches and great people – this is the place. It’s a hidden gem. But with more ways of getting here, more people will come, discover and fall in love with Anguilla. New resorts like The Four Seasons, The Reef and Zemi Beach are introducing the island to more new people who will “get the bug” and won’t want to leave!

decisions. The house perfectly blurs indoors and outdoors, with beautiful outdoor spaces that take full advantage of the views and proximity to the beach. Designed to be “very liveable and not a showcase,” it also has an indoor airconditioned gym and professional-quality kitchen. “We built it to live in and then decided to rent it, giving our staff work all year-round. Rental income allows us to keep the house and services at the top level and to replace things before they depreciate. Our fantastic Manager, Michelle Owen-Vasilis, provides concierge services and arranges everything for guests! We have been very fortunate and have had a lot of repeat visitors.” Their second property, stylish Beaches Edge, is actually two villas with 5 bedrooms each that can be rented separately or together.

potential but was underperforming in the rental market. He decided to buy it and upgrade it to create a better guest experience; increasing the amount of bedrooms and adding a larger pool and terrace, and an indoor gym. Now Beaches Edge is a luxurious, yet still affordable option for larger groups or families, and the perfect spot for weddings. With sleek, modern lines, it is very different in style from the Tuscaninspired Alegria, but offers guests the same high level of service and incredible views, a small beach nearby and central air conditioning throughout. So, a few years down the line and two properties later, do the Freemans still love Anguilla? The answer is a resounding, “Yes!”. Neil, who is in real estate and finance, and Wendy, who is a personal trainer/Pilates instructor back home, are fully integrated into island life. “When you come for two weeks you are thinking mostly about vacation. When you are on island for extended periods of time you start to get more involved. I love scuba and golf. Wendy has a bicycle and rides the island twice a week, and often teaches Pilates classes. We love the ocean, and the island has the greatest restaurants and the friendliest people in the Caribbean – maybe the world!”

I know exactly what visitors want when they come to me looking for land to build their dream home – views and close proximity to Anguilla’s pristine waters and white sandy beaches. 2016 saw a brisk trade in land sales, mainly 1/4 to 1/2 acre lots, with sea views and in locations close to popular beaches like Meads Bay and Shoal Bay East. There is still plenty of land in great locations to choose from but I predict the trend will continue in 2017 and the last of the bargains will have been snapped up.

IF YOU ARE ready to take the plunge and dive into Anguilla life – that dream home, villa or business opportunity is just a phone call or email away. Properties in Paradise owner, Elaine Hearn, suggests you look out for the AREA logo, “We are proud to have established the Anguilla Real Estate Association (AREA). This is the official association for fully licensed real estate companies on Anguilla and we would encourage all visitors wishing to purchase property on island to consult with an AREA member."

Many opportunities exist for buyers and there seems to be an increase in foreign investors. Given the amount of land and real estate opportunities, this is the perfect time to start considering a purchase on the island. We believe 2017 could be the start of more island development and increasing real estate sales. Anguilla has so much to offer, from turnkey ownership, to mega villa mansions, to small affordable residences to retire to.
