Fantasizing About the Classifieds
|From the Anguilla Local News - Site Map.|
Have you ever poured over the tiny classified villa ads in the back of travel magazines? Publications such as Islands Magazine and Caribbean Travel and Life. Did you wonder what the villas were really like? For example, here are two classifieds from the April 1997 issue of ISLANDS:
ANGUILLA, MEADS BAY - Nathan's Cove - 1-2 and 4-bedroom apartments from $100-$550 nightly. (301)630-3040. (264)497-2596.It so happens that we know Nathan's Cove. We stayed there on our second visit to Anguilla in January 1994. It was new, clean, and fully furnished including washer and dryer. A few steps of sand to the water of Meads Bay. Very nice for a reasonable price. This small complex is located next door to Blanchards Restarant. A couple of suprising things: the wind blows from the back of the building, not the ocean side, so the better bedrooms for cool sleeping are on the back side; and, the vegetation blocks the downstairs view of the beach, but this gives you privacy too. The upstairs was huge. At the time it had 8 double beds in 4 bedrooms, perfect for an Anguillian family reunion. Here's another:
ANGUILLA, SHOAL BAY - 2 bedroom, 2-bath villa, Pool satellite TV, and maid service. $325/night peak season, $225/night low season. (909) 822-1169 days, (909)793-9694 nights and weekends.This is Dick and Judy Collins' Seabreeeze villa, just to the west of Serenity Restaurant on Upper Shoal Bay, 100 steps from the water. Pictured above. The villa is almost perfectly designed for two couples.
