Good tasting beach food, reasonable prices, and live music and dancing on Sundays. The crowd is nice, a mixture of locals, tourists and expats. Currently performing at a reasonable volume are the High Tension Reggae Band with Tap (and Tap's wife Gwen in the kitchen).
Of course Elodia's is open on other days too, but the live music adds a special touch. Easy parking. Telephone: 264-497-3363.

Trip Report April 1999 3 night stay
by Andy Arden (email:
This was our third trip to Anguilla and it was in celebration of our 15 year wedding anniversary.
Our flight out from St. Lucia to Anguilla was via Antigua with Liat. The flight was on time and without any problems. Upon leaving customs we were met at the airport by the Cap Juluca representative who had a taxi waiting for us.
Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by guest relations and handed rum punches to enjoy during check in. Our villa was a one bedroom suite, with a huge bedroom that opened to the beach and a large beautiful bathroom - separate shower that led to a private sun bathing area, huge double tub - enclosed toilet and bidet area and dual sinks.
We had lunch at their George's Restaurant and it was good, $40.00 for 2. Continental Breakfast was served every morning on time on our patio. The in-room refrigerator is well stocked with water, soda, beer etc. No charge.
The hotel is still great and the service was excellent. This island has great, very friendly people and they are all very helpful with answering a question. The beaches and restaurants are great. E-mail me with any questions.
Thanks to all the local businesses for making our 15 year wedding anniversary celebration special. Extra thank you to the staff and management at Cap Juluca, "Guish" - GM, and Patricia Bryan - Resident Manager.. It was like being "home again".
Read more visitor reports.
Sandals and Such is open all year, except for September when they buy the new stock.
The manager is Graceland Hawley of Sandy Hill, and the owner is Jan Tarbert, who rescued the building from demolition and had it restored. She started in 93, went through Hurricane Luis with the old cottage, and is still going strong. Telephone: 1-264-497-6009.
Directions: from the airport parking lot, take the only exit and turn left, then turn left again and drive past the airport, through the roundabout and west down the main island road. Avoid the right turn at the next roundabout and enter South Hill. Go past the Methodist Church, bear left, then right, and watch for Sandals and Such on the right just before the Blowing Point turnoff. If you reach Connors Rent a Car, you went 50 yards too far.

Strange Object in the Sky?
Date: Mon, 10 May 1999
From: Stuart and Valerie Roberts
Subject: Unknown Object
On Wednesday, May 5, 1999, my husband and I were eating dinner at
Oliver's. I was looking up the coast in a Northeast direction (I think)
when I saw what appeared to be a very large "ball of fire" , or possibly
a meteorite coming out of the low level clouds and into the ocean. As it
was after dark, between 8 and 9 pm, I had no perspective on how far away
this object was, but it did appear rather large. Has anyone else
reported seeing a similar object that night? Please respond with any
information you have.
Thanks, Valerie Roberts
Fond memories, Ernie

Many years ago I spent one of my most memorable vacations in the small place
called Anguilla. They were just starting to build some fancy hotels out on
some remote beach. I stayed in a place at
Sandy Ground owned by
Gumbs. Is the place still there? Was it called the
by any chance? It
seems to ring a bell. There was Johnnos on the beach then, still there? One
day I will go back but much harder now that I live all the way over here in
Hawaii (Big Island).
Fond memories, Ernie
Read about bathroom finishing, faux tiles, decorating the porch, air conditioning, Insteel panels, the search for bandwidth, and the uninterruptible solar power at the new Beachtech Technology Center. Then read the other 19 construction reports and visit the tropical building bookstore.
|Internet Yellow Pages: all known Anguilla web sites are indexed in this "yellow pages" directory.|
Hansa.Net has a nice realistic web page describing the sometimes tricky steps an e-commerce business must go through to take advantage of Anguilla's tax system.
Devonish.ai, has been redone. Click here for the new web site for Courtney Devonish's gallery at George Hill Landing.
You need to have access to an ISP that operates in your local area. In Anguilla this is Cable and Wireless (1-264-497-3100). Click here for more details on connecting to Cable and Wireless.
Many people who travel a lot use IBM.Net, AT&T, Compuserve or AOL, since these providers have access in almost every major city (at least in the USA).
In your favorite email softare, such as Microsoft Outlook or Eudora, there is an option to set your POP3, and SMTP mail addresses. You don't need to know what these mean, you just need to know that POP3 is for picking up email and SMTP is for sendng email. Normally these are both set to point at your local provider. In order to send email when you are away from home, you need to change the SMTP address (you will also have to figure out how to logon to the foreign ISP, see link above for Anguilla).
Don't forget to change your SMTP address when you return home.
There is another approach which avoids changing your software. Use a free email account such as Yahoo. Using Yahoo mail, there is an option to check your external email which will requires you supply the same pop3 information and password as in 2. above. Yahoo remembers this, so each time you want to access your mail you can ask it to check "external" and it will get your email. With this approach you can check your email from any browser, even the one at the library.
One last point to watch out for; when you are away, it is suggested that you set the option for deleting your email off. That way when you return home no email will be lost, although you will have to wade through it again.
Hope this helps,
