We spent 10 glorious days in Anguilla at Moonraker.This was our fifth year visiting Anguilla at this time of year, our first visit to Moonraker.Wow, if possible the house is more amazing than it appears online.The house was immaculate and as you can see online, very spacious.We were 2 couples traveling together. We were supposed to be three couples, but one couple had to back out. We were worried that the home was going to be overwhelming size wise for just 2 couples, it was not.The lay out of the house is great.Enough space and privacy for everyone, but still with intimate spaces to all be together.The kitchen is a cooks dream.We ate in 8 nights out of the 10 we were there. Great grille right out side the kitchen.This year we finally found local seafood.Close to the house, in Island Harbor, we found a local lobsterman and purchased some Caribbean lobsters from him and cooked them at the house on the grille, amazing! Fresh local lobster sitting on that beautiful pool patio dining by candle light under the stars, doesn't get much better than that!
The pool is the most spectacular pool I have ever seen at any private home, and at most hotels. So many nice features.I spent many days lying on a pool mat floating around that huge
pool.Whether you wanted to be in the sun or shade, both were possible.The pool furniture was extremely comfortable,loungers, chairs and couches. Day or night it was so relaxing sitting by the pool,with the cool breeze and the sound of the ocean waves.I even slept outside one night in a lounger under the stars, so beautiful. (My husband thought I was crazy ;-)). No air conditioning needed, even though the house is fully air conditioned, the cool breezes and the sound of the waves could be heard and felt in all the bedrooms, doors wide open all night. The bedrooms were all fantastic.We had the master suite on the first floor, absolutely huge.Very comfortable bed and gorgeous bathroom.
The home was in a great location. Quiet neighborhood, great place to go walking or running.Very close to the water, rocky shoreline, but fun to walk to Savannah Bay. Only a short 8 minute drive to Shoal Bay East, our favorite beach. Great new pizza restaurant, Artisian, in Island Harbor.Small open air place with great pizza and wine.Try the homemade ice cream, delicious.
Paul, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful, very kind.Georgia, the housekeeper, was a dream.So sweet and kind.Loved chatting with her everyday.
Can't wait to go back!!!
