Quick Tour of Anguilla

Click here for a map showing Anguilla's relative location, about six miles from St. Martin. The first resort hotel was built around 1980 and there are still no hotels with more than 100 rooms or taller than a palm tree. In its own quiet, relaxed way, Anguilla has a lot of offer: watersports, snorkeling, scuba diving, 30+ clear white beaches, about 100 restaurants, all the way from casual bbq stands to gourmet adventures, places to stay ranging from inexpensive inns to world-class luxury resorts, and private villas for the ultimate in privacy. And what is missing: gambling, cruise ships, duty free shopping, and jet skis.

Here is a quick sample in pictures: sailing on Shoal Bay, an old-time cottage turned into a restaurant, the five star Cap Juluca resort, Sprocka playing at Madeariman Reef, and Atlantic waves breaking on the shore at Windward Point.

Bartlett's Collection

[Click to enlarge] It was a delight to discover the unique gift and souvenir ideas at Bartlett's Collection on Back Street, South Hill. Just imagining the thought and care that had gone into hand-picking the products from across the globe and the creativity in presenting them for gift-giving is inspiring. Calvin & Lynne Bartlett have put their hearts and souls into putting this collection together.

Calvin & Lynne: "We met by fate both with the same ideas, we combined our energy and created Bartlett's Anguilla. Our intense efforts and research resulted into some thing unique for Anguilla. Our objective is to form a network of talented artists, locally and world-wide, who would capture scenic views of Anguilla, whilst offering the service to customize works of art based upon customer request. Our special theme is the Marine Life of Anguilla."

Bartlett's Collection includes the exclusive and specially designed Bartlett's pottery by Vanessa Bartlett and Brigitte Bouquette, original paintings from various artists, engraved crystal pieces from Yugoslavia, Spanish Galleon Medallion jewelry, snorkeling gear, wrap sets, hand blown glass ornaments, hand-painted pottery, Guavaberry Prime Liqueurs & Spices Gift sets and Guavaberry designer bottles ( a rare find!). Bartlett's will soon launch their "free tasting" on special days for guests who would like to sample before they buy. Also special recipes for making exotic coladas will be added to the gift package.
[Click to enlarge]

There are also some very unique finds: One is the sun-colouring T-shirt (see picture below) - the design on these shirts magically turns from black and white to multi-coloured when exposed to the sunlight - perfect for a good laugh among unsuspecting companions! Another great item for elegant wear on the beach is a wrap set which includes a wrap skirt, a hair scrunchie and a matching bag for US$30. Another neat idea is a tropical fabric book cover/carry case for paperback books. There are also some hand-painted Anguilla Christmas ornaments. Not to forget the palette, you can try the Guavaberry grilling sauce made of papaya juices, brown sugar and other tempting ingredients.

The Bartlett family has had some successful creative business concepts. Vanessa, Calvin's daughter, created Bartlett's The Netherlands, specializing in home furnishings. Vanessa was recently voted as "Starting Entrepreneur of the Year" in Utrecht, a major city in the Netherlands. She is the youngest Entrepreneur to ever win this prize and has been invited to meet His Royal Highness Prince Willem Alexander and his Fiancé Maxima.

When you visit Bartlett's Collection, be sure to look up Sera, the Bartlett's adopted rescued dog from the AARF.

Opening hours: Monday - Saturday: 9am - 5pm, except Wednesdays when they are open from 9am - 2pm. Closed Sundays. Telephone: 497-6625. Email: bartlett@anguillanet.com.

Directions: starting from the airport parking lot, take the only exit and turn left, then left again past the airport entrance. Continue straight down the middle of the island to the west. At the next roundabout (Sandy Ground), continue straight. In about a mile you will see a right turn sign for The Lighthouse chinese restaurant. Take the paved right turn and go out to Back Street on the cliff. Bartlett's Collection is in a 3-story building just before Back Street.

Corner Bar Pizza

[Click to enlarge] In answer to a question on the Carib-Online Forum, 'Where is everyone's favorite spot for inexpensive pizza? I cannot go a whole week with just 5 star meals',, one of the favorite choices was the Corner Bar Pizza.

The Flemings at the Corner Bar Pizza spot in North Hill have a unique family recipe which draws pizza lovers from all over the island. Venice and Lorna Fleming own and manage the restaurant along with the assistance of cousins Claudius and Peggy. They use homemade dough to make a thin crust and use fresh local produce like veggies and seafood for toppings as much as possible.

Their menu is quite extensive, catering to every palette. The Lovers Line Special includes: Caribbean Pizza, Meat lovers, Cheese Lover Plus, Super Supreme, Veggie Lovers, Pepperoni Lovers and Seafood Pizza.

If you can't decide on which toppings, have them all…on a Garbage Pizza!
[Click to enlarge]

Pictured to the right are Lorna, Venice, Claudius and Peggy (left to right).
The Sea Food Line includes Crab Pizza, Fish Pizza, Seafood Combo, Lobster Pizza, Shrimp Pizza and Conch Pizza. There's a Kids Meal Special for US$3 which features a personal pan pizza with a soda.

There are side orders available of garlic bread, garlic cheese bread, hot wings and french fries.

For the Lovers Line and Seafood Line prices are as follows: Personal Pan - US$4, Small Pan at US$8, Medium Pan - US$14 and Large Pan - US$18.

Opening hours:
Monday - Saturday 11am - 11pm;
Sunday 4pm - 11pm.
Telephone: 264-497-3937.

Directions: Starting from the airport parking lot, take the only exit and turn left, then left again and past the airport entrance. Continue straight through the roundabout and down the main road. You will pass George Hill and the Anguilla Vision Center, then Richardson Furniture, then take a paved right turn into North Hill village. If you get to the next roundabout, you went one block too far. Follow the one road into the village until you reach Corner Bar.

With a reasonable investment it is now possible to buy your own apartment in the Caribbean. Sandy Hill Beach Club is located on a two acre area just at the sea front on the beach of Sandy Hill Bay on Anguilla.

The project comprises four independent villa buildings, facing the ocean and the mountains of Sint Maarten, common grounds, swimming pool and other facilities. Each villa will have two floors and will be divided in four (or eight) apartments.

Thus for an affordable price you can have a wonderful holiday place at the tropics as well as a profitable investment for the future.

See the pictures of the works in progress. Expected conpletion date of the first 8 apartments is Spring 2002. As soon as they are ready, Sandy Hill Club can offer a try before you buy combination, to serious prospects.

Loblolly Gallery: 2001 Opening

[Click to enlarge] November 17th was the 2001 season opening for Loblolly Gallery, located on Crocus Hill in historic Rose Cottage.

Four artists from Anguilla traveled to Aix en Provence last May to study and follow in the footsteps of Cezanne. We visited his studio and painted in "plei-air" in the country side at his favorite spots. Most inspiring were the views of Monte Sainte Victoire and the woods near the studio.

At the opening on Saturday, Loblolly Gallery hosted an exhibition of the works created on this trip. The four artists were Joan Hill, Marj Morani, Paula Walden, and Joanne Davies (picture right).

Positive Feedback on E's Oven

After our story on Vernon Hughes and his restaurant, E's Oven, Judy Cox (judith_cox@sympatico.ca) sent this testimonial to Janine Edwards, our new reporter:

Hello Janine.

My spouse & I absolutely love Anguilla. We have visited the island four times from our home in Toronto, Ontario. We have just arrived home from a brief one week vacation in Anguilla and have read the article in Bob Green's website introducing yourself and your article feature E's Oven Restaurant was an uncanny & timely coincidence.
click to enlarge

I'd like to tell you that Eric & I found E's Oven on this trip and did not want to eat elsewhere. The food was prepared wonderfully and, as Canadian's with a very undervalued dollar, we found their prices to be reasonable. The venue was clean & delightful and we found eating there to be an uplifting experience.

Upon completion of our last meal there (which I believe was the fourth), I asked the sweet, young waitress (who I believe is the Hughes's niece) if she would give the chef my compliments and I made the suggestion that she put together and sell a recipe book. She thanked me for the compliment but, I don't know if she realised how serious I was!

Then, we arrived home, read the recent report on Bob's web site and you featured the fish cakes recipe. Unfortunately, we cannot obtain trigger fish in Canada so I will not be able to try this recipe but I was hoping that Peggy Hughes might be willing to pass on the carrot soup recipe or the chicken breast with cream sauce.
click to enlarge

We have already planned our next vacation to Anguilla for two weeks starting at the end of July 2002 and plan to eat a meal at E's Oven daily. Considering that we have several months of winter ahead of us, it seems like an eternity.

Please pass on my appreciation and best wishes for a great season to the Hughes from Eric & myself. We live in a city of four million people (and many chefs) and we find it difficult to find food of that quality in any Toronto restaurant!

With warm regards,

Judy

The workshop has been organized by Marj Morani and is targeted for the beginning and intermediate watercolourist. Anyone interested in participating should contact Marj at marge@masonc.com or 497-4229.


Anguilla Mentioned in Travel Magazine.

Susanne Thevenet (glawrence24@home.com) writes: The Dec. issue of Conde Nast Traveller arrived today and on page 112 is an article entitled "More Sun for Less Money" with some photos and illustrations. It begins:

"It's that time of year again. The desire for a quick, sunny and affordable break is overwhelming. The good news is that there is no shortage of exciting places to escape to. Here are 25 of the best."

Anguilla is the first mentioned, on page 114. The text is as follows:

"Under the sun: If any place can be described as bipolar, it's this laidback island just five miles from St. Martin. It's flat, scrubby, dry, unprepossessing -- but many Caribbean islands would be grateful for just one of the estimated 33 powder-white beaches. It has luxe resorts (Cap Juluca, Maliouhana) as well as small, unpretentious inns that, given their spectacular settings, give endless bang for your endless-sun bucks. Rendezvous Bay Hotel and Villas has funky, supremely relaxed old Caribbean charm, a new chef shaking things up in the kitchen, and bright-new villas on its endless beach. (264-497-6549, rendezvousbay.com, doubles $120)."

"In contrast, the new five-room Madeariman Beach Club is an off-shoot of Madariman Reef Restaurant on Shoal Bay. Roll out of your bed and right into the surf (264-497-3833), madeariman.com, doubles $175-$225), or wander next door to Uncle Ernie's where the barbecue will set you back $10 and Heinekens go for $2."

"PREP: Anguilla Life magazine is free at most hotels. DISTANCE: 5 hours from New York."

There is also a 2 in. by 2in. photo of sand, water and sky. Thanks for keeping up the good work on the monthly newsletter and I enjoy Janine's articles. Susanne Thevenet - we've gone to Anguilla for 9 years.

My wife and I just returned from a lovely week on Anguilla and I just wanted to drop a note to thank you for your excellent web site. In planning our first trip to the island I took advantage of the wealth of information on your site in many ways. I used the menus to choose restaurants. I used the beaches guide to find remote spots (such as Dropsey Bay and Captain's Bay). I found a source for beach chairs, umbrellas, and a cooler (thanks to the wonderful Janine Edwards). I even brought home a map from the Land & Survey office!

In short, your excellent web site greatly enhanced our stay in paradise. We've traveled elsewhere in the Caribbean but now I can't imagine going anywhere but Anguilla. Thanks again.

Private villas for rent.

Article on Anguilla in the Providence Journal . Newspaper reporter visits Anguilla: Like many who venture beyond the theme-park islands of the Caribbean and discover Anguilla, my mind ponders various definitions of paradise. Without the typical beachside distractions, I'm forced to turn my attention to the beauty of the primal elements; the blushing sand, water that mimics the bluest sky, and gentle waves that caress the beach with a lover's touch. The only sound I hear is the mummer of the waves that barely crest before lapping onto shore. The surf slips back into the deep leaving the sand golden instead of stained as one might expect from such inky blue water. The rhythm of the waves, nature's unerring clock, sets the schedule here, not 8-to-5 deadlines.
