Beaches Edge is a wonderful place to stay. I definitely give it 5 stars. We couldn't have been more pleased with the villas, the staff and Anguilla. I am on the board of a commercial real estate group in Chicago and we chose Beaches Edge as the location for our annual planning retreat this past February. We had 10 people so we booked both the East and West villas so everyone had his own bedroom suite and private bathroom. It was a working vacation for all of us, so the fact that the villas had Internet access was key. It worked out perfectly. With two villas we had plenty of space to spread out and then we met back up for meals and meetings. The owner and staff helped us plan our trip down to the last detail and everything was in pristine shape on the property. We flew into St. Martin. Some of my colleagues came in a day early and spent a night in St. Martin. We all made the quick trip by boat (I was actually surprised how close the boat launch was to the airport) to Anguilla and then took a taxi to Beaches Edge. The view is truly astounding. The villas are 5-star and secluded. We had a driver we could call anytime we wanted to go anywhere, and everything is just a few minutes away. There's a path next to the villas that takes you down to the beach. We walked down several times and took lots of great pictures. I was particularly struck by the beauty of the shadow of the mountains on St. Martin against the light blue of the sky and the deeper blue of the ocean. We spent hours out on the terrace, in the hot tub and pool just enjoying the view. We didn't cook anything except make coffee, but the kitchen had everything and there was a grill too. The food on Anguilla is delicious, really fresh and well-prepared. The villas' owner arranged for Dale Carty, the head chef and owner of Tasty's to come over and cook for us one night. It was one of the best meals we've ever had and included fresh grilled fish and some amazing Brussel sprouts. The restaurant Picante was also one of my favorites. We were just there for four days, so we didn't have long enough to explore the whole island, but we did a little beach hopping, snorkeling and swimming, took a boat cruise to one of the cays, listened to reggae legend Bankie Banks perform at his bar, Dune Preserve, and jumped off the rock at Little Bay. Some of my colleagues also went fishing. My wife was jealous that I got to go and she didn't, and we are already planning a family trip back with our kids.
