``Most amazing place we have ever stayed. Their hospitality is unmatched. The villa is magnificent and certainly worth every penny. The level of service is truly remarkable. We have never had a vacation that came close to equaling this.``

Spyglass Hill exceeded our expectations!

Spyglass Hill exceeded our expectations! Shelley was wonderful! So attentative and kind. The Villa was so charming and we watched all of the sunsets poised and mellow by the pool. As beautiful as the beaches are, some days we just hung out at Spyglass. Thanks for letting this be home for us!

Jill added; “Spyglass Villa is an amazing place to enjoy Anguilla. The views are unbelievable and the service was great. Shelly also came every day except Sunday to clean and freshen towels, linens etc. There were snacks, breakfast options and plenty of drinks (and rum punch!) for all of us. We never lacked for anything. The roads are not great getting up the hill so I highly recommend renting a jeep. The location is mid-island which gave us easy access to the best beaches and restaurants. So many great options made for a wonderful holiday! Our 2 teenagers enjoyed it as much as we did. Hope to return one day soon!”

“by far our best experience.”

We rented Spyglass for a month starting November 8 to December 10 2018 . We had 3 adult couples for the first 2 weeks and 3 adult children and 3 grandkids for the second 2 weeks.
We have travelled extensively in the Caribbean renting homes on other islands. Anguilla and Spyglass Hill were by far our best experience.
The home is everything it is represented to be. Beautiful views. Perfectly equipped from kitchen to entertainment (the little gym is a great bonus). The way the home is designed allows complete privacy for everyone. Bedrooms are large with well appointed bathrooms and spectacular decks. Beds and linens are perfect. There are 4 separate common areas where you can gather or hide depending on your mood all wonderfully furnished.
The pool is everything the photos show it to be. We partied with adults late night in the pool and 2 weeks later were in the pools with our grandkids.
The most enjoyable part of this property however is the service. The owner Janine is a smart, attentive hospitality pro. Any communications are responded to immediately and any issues resolved within the half hour(literally). She actually sends you daily ideas of what is happening on the island!
The daily cleaning service provided by Shelly and Onika is beyond any expectation. On the day before our grandkids arrived they stayed and extra 3 hours polishing the place though it was already spotless.
From arranging transport from St Martin airport, to greeting us at the ferry, to arriving to a fully stocked fridge and bar, to having rental cars delivered to the house …. this place is dialed in.
A few other thoughts: Anguilla is a complex place for such a small island. The home is located on north hill and feels remote when you arrive. Your first thought is that it is too isolated. However after a couple of days of driving around the island ( and you need a car in Anguilla if you are really going to enjoy it)you realize the location is perfect. Every morning we got up, had breakfast, went for a swim or the gym or both then headed out on an adventure. Spyglass Hill is literally less than 20 minutes from everywhere: shoal bay east beach and the spectacular madearimans beach restaurant; rendezvous bay and coconuts and bankies (especially Sunday); Meads Bay and Waves Beach Shack; Saturday night in the valley at KEN’s bbq; Sandbar in Sandy Ground…. just to name a few .
Anguilla is not a place you want to go and sit in one place.

Amazing View

The biggest issue we had with the property was not wanting to leave it lol! The view and the breeze on that terrace was so amazing to the point that we always got a late start in the day because we could not get ourselves to  leave the Villa .

We had an excellent time at Spyglass and the other couples which was their first time at Anguilla fell in love not only with the island but with the people .

Our Stay Following Hurricane Irma

Had to tear ourselves away from the comfort and beauty of Spyglass Hill Villa today.  Following Hurricane Irma, we were inspired by the residents of Anguilla, who pulled together to restore, repair and renew this beautiful island.  There are many reasons we are drawn to this lovely island and its incredible beaches, but the people of Anguilla are inspiring in their resiliency and positive attitudes and are a reason to spend time here in itself.

Thank you Shelley for all you do during our stay.  You are the queen of hospitality.

We are grateful for our time at Spyglass.

Thank You!

Our Favourite Villa by Far

We have been coming to Anguilla for 17 years and Spyglass Hill is our favourite Villa by far. Shelley is awesome and always wants to ensure we are happy with our stay.

Beautiful Spyglass Villa

My family and I returned to Spyglass for the Holidays. We had the most wonderful time. Anguilla is back !! Spyglass Villa even more beautiful! New furniture in dining room, living room and bedrooms. The gardens very well manicured and amazing views from every area! Anguilla beaches are beyond stunning but sometimes my family of six adults and I wanted to relax at the villa to swim in the infinity pool and gaze at the stunning views. Spyglass is set high on a hill with spectacular views of the ocean and Sandy Ground. The housekeeping by Shelley is to the highest standard. Nothing too much trouble for Shelley, who goes beyond the call of duty to make everything perfect for us. Mrs. White catered dinner on arrivals day, which was greatly appreciated. Delicious fish and the cheese and potato pie was incredible!! Such a special place to stay, we can’t wait to go back!!

The View is Breathtaking!

This was our first visit to Spyglass and we already can’t wait to return one day! The view is breathtaking!

We enjoyed the infinity pool and pool table.  Today was a birthday I’ll never forget.  We took the Bliss boat to Sandy Island and ate fresh lobster, crayfish & shrimp while taking in the crystal blue water and white sandy beach.

We loved Elvis’ Bar, Dad’s, Sand Bar and Pump House.  Everyone is so friendly.  Meads Bay is gorgeous!  Straw Hat is delicious, We’ll be back!

Our Second Stay

It was a joy to spend 2 weeks at Spyglass Villa. This was our second stay at Spyglass but we have each visited the island many times ( 8 – 25 times).  Spyglass offers everything we seek in a villa and more.  Thank you for your warm and attentive hospitality.  We look forward to returning!

Look no further than Spyglass!!

We stayed at Spyglass Hill Villa the week of New Years. It exceeded all of our expectations. Ms Janine was fantastic in communicating with us all the way up to the trip. She answered every question that we had and was extremely accommodating and helpful. The villa was more than we expected. Ms Erlene was so helpful once we got there and met us at the port. She showed us the house and made sure we were well taken care of the entire stay. Ms Shelly was an amazing housekeeper. Service as better than any resort! They go out of their way to make you feel at home and to be sure you have all the comforts that you could possibly need. If you are considering a villa for your stay, this is the one. Reasonably priced, great location, incredible views, and the house is extremely nice.

A week in paradise

My husband and I travelled to Anguilla for the first time with our sons (20, 22)and a friend for spring break. Spyglass Hill Villa was highly recommended by a family member and did not disappoint. We flew to St Maarten and hired Calypso Charters to take us to Blowing Point Ferry Terminal. Captain Tony and Zeek were friendly and offered us refreshments and we immediately relaxed and felt our vacation had begun. Zeek gave us information about Anguilla and told us about the famous Moonsplash Music Festival. We were met at the ferry terminal by Mrs. White who took us to Spyglass and showed us around the beautiful villa and gave us valuable details about restaurants ,beaches and fun excursions. We were all blown away by the breathtaking views from every room. Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy. The kitchen was well stocked with all our requests and a delicious lunch prepared for us. A generous bar stocked with everything you could possibly want for vacation cocktails. Shelly did an outstanding job housekeeping. Everyone extremely friendly,helpful and kind. We hired a car for the week and visited many beaches and restaurants. We loved all the beaches! Blanchards Beach Shack was great for lunch. Dinner at the restaurant next door was amazing too. Tropical Sunset at Shoal Beach was delightful for lunch, delicious food beautiful beach, snorkeling and bird watching. The pelicans diving for fish was mesmerizing. Junior was there too, great guy who will take you out in his glass bottom boat for a fun snorkeling plus excursion. Sunshine Shack, Rendezvous Beach was great. A day out on Sandy Island is amazing, probably our best day. Not to be missed. At the end of every beach day we all loved to walk into Spyglass villa and hang out there with cocktails. We loved the courtyard, the central part of the house and the lovely patio with comfy chairs/sun beds and hammock. We loved our experience in Anguilla so much we plan to go back soon. We have more to discover.

8 Magical Days in Paradise

How do I sum up the most perfect week away? I’ll start by saying that from the moment we first contacted the Spyglass Hill team, we knew we would be in great hands… but we never could have imagined the extent of it. Upon arriving at the Blowing Point ferry, we were met by Erlene who coordinated our transport to the villa. Once at the villa, we were immediately blown away. Photos just can’t do this house justice. The views are amazing. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated with incredible outdoor showers on the 2nd floor, Our grocery shopping had already been completed. The car rentals were in the driveway. And a Christmas corner had been set up in response to our request for some lights on a tree. What’s more, Shelley was there to greet us with rum punch and assorted sandwiches. For eight wonderful days, we were treated with such warmth and hospitality — anything we needed, they were quick to provide or address — including recommendations, reservations, and even a surprise birthday cake for my dad. Plus, the house is located in the center of the island, making it a 7 minute drive to Sandy Ground, and a max of 15-20 minutes to most anywhere you want to go (33 white sand beaches to choose from, each with clear, turquoise waters!). Janine, Erlene, Shelley – thank you for making this the most perfect vacation! We look forward to visiting again soon.

Wonderful Villa

We stayed at Spyglass Hill Villa in May 2016. The house and the view are both gorgeous. Even better than the pictures online. When we arrived in Anguilla a representative for the house was waiting for you us at blowing point ferry terminal who escorted us to the villa. When we arrived they had lunch in the oven keeping warm that they picked up for us from a restaurant included in the price of our stay. They had also stocked up the pantry and fridge with way more than expected free groceries. They had asked when we booked for a list of snacks we liked. Not only did they have all the snacks we listed, but they had dozens of other unopened groceries. Also when we arrived we found our rental car waiting for us in the driveway. The villa comes with a cell phone that you are allowed to take with you around the island to make calls from. The villa also has two landline phones: one for free local calls and one for free calls to the US. In the garage we found rafts and pool toys that could be used pool. The kitchen is fully stocked with all plate and glassware you could need as well as pots, pans, cooking utensils. Etc. All 4 rooms in the house could all be considered master bedrooms since all four rooms are large and come with their own full bathroom. We found all the rooms to be very clean. The 4th bedroom which is underneath the main floor of the villa is more like an apartment than a bedrooms. It’s also has a pool table, small gym, kitchenette, and living room. The house also has an automatic gate that you will get a clicker to so you can feel safe that no one is getting in at night. There is air conditioning in each bedroom that works very well but you may not even need it depending on the time of year. Due to the house being up on a hill, you get a wonderful cross breeze when the doors are opening that surprisingly cooled us off even when the AC was off. We really could not come up with one complaint about our stay here. We were blown away by every aspect of Spyglass from the time we arrived till the time we left.

Idyll by the sea…

Beautiful spot above Sandy Ground. House was delightfully laid out for 4 couples. Enjoyed watching the activity in the harbor. Great location for hopping around to different resorts but better than all of them. Shelly was terrific supporting the house and was a great source of info on restaurants snorkeling etc. Would absolutely choose the same house.

At the very top of my list!

My stay at spyglass with my team back in June 2015, has been an amazing experience. The breathtaking views, the modern approach to vacation luxury and so much more is wrapped up in this property. I will always recommend it to the travelers i am in contact with as well as i look forward to returning in the near future! Thank you Spyglass team!

Dream Vacation Excellent Service

Our family of four stayed in this villa for three days two nights. I spotted this villa during my previous trips to Anguilla (even though there are lots of nice villas in Anguilla to choose from) I thought it would be one of our best vacation spots. I fell in love with the cute design of Mediterranean Style courtyard, ancient style doors, exposed wooden beams, furniture, and the panoramic view from the deck with infinity pool is just breathtaking. We found this villa’s design to be very practical, that from the first minutes we felt home, away from home. Kitchen was well equipped with all we needed. Fridge was already stuffed with products we enjoy, so it wasn’t necessary for us to go shopping. We took two rooms upstairs with private balconies and bathrooms. Outdoor showers are amazing! The villa was equipped with all little things, we could possibly need. After our day trip to Sandy island we thought to get some mosquito after-bites and Voila …In our wardrobes, we found (suntan creams, sunscreens, mosquito repellents, mosquito after-bites …After active day on Sandy island we had quiet time on deck, enjoying sunset, sipping drinks, and watching yachts sailing. Next time we definitely should bring our grandparents with us as well, the bedroom on main floor with easy access will be suitable for them. Many thanks to Janine to make our dream-vacation. After Anguilla we traveled to St.Martin, Tortola, Virgin Gorda and San Juan, every day having new adventure, but still kids saying to us…”When we are going back home to Spyglass?”

Luxury & Service at its Finest

This was the most amazing place we have every stayed. From the start, Janine made everything easy and their hospitality is unmatched. The villa is magnificent and certainly worth every penny. The level of service is truly remarkable. We have never had a vacation that came close to equaling this with regard to the villa or the beaches.

Why go to the beach when you can stay at the villa

We stayed a week in late-April for our honeymoon and while we have been to Anguilla many times and our main focus during our visits is usually the fantastic beaches, this time the villa stole the show. Sunsets from the dinner table, views of the harbour yet remote enough that you remain private at your own pool. Loved the Spanish design with the open air courtyard between rooms.
