About Elise & Paul
In February 2003, Elise and Paul found 'Anguilla' on their very FIRST visit and knew immediately Anguilla was a very special island. ... Elise & Paul had been 'touring' the Caribbean for the 20 years' prior looking for their special Paradise. Anguilla was that True Paradise. Anugilla has the very best beaches, warmest people and numerous wonderful restaurants in all price ranges. ... Elise & Paul found the castle's site on that very first visit and actually put a deposit on the land while drinking a 'Jim & tonic' at Roy's restaurant when it was down in Crocus Bay. Elise and Paul would not have built Grand Outlook Castle anywhere else on Anguilla... Elise has sincerely noted... 'It is the grandest site we could find on Anguilla.' We bought the site in 2003 and started building Grand Outlook Castle in 2004. The Castle was completed late in 2007. OVER three years of very excellent planning and very hard labor but well worth the outcome. We have now have had over 2,500 guests in just 7 seasons and have received 87! all 5 star reviews; THANK YOU! We love it when guests say they find it very hard to leave what we were blessed in having created for your enjoyment... & ours too! Grand Outlook Castle Anguilla! As we say & sincerely mean @ Grand Outlook Castle 'COME... & Just EXHALE!' tm
Elise & Paul purchased this Castle in 2003

What makes this Castle unique
Grand Outlook Castle is so very comfortable with both large communal spaces, quiet alone places and amazing views that make it simply hard to leave. Grand Outlook Castle is located in the middle of Anguilla so getting to any beach, all major shopping and any restaurant quite easy. We are on the second highest point on Anguilla so you can see both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea at the same time. You can see St. Barths which is 24 miles to the southeast AND on a really clear day, you can see St. Kitts which is almost 60 miles away. Being 180 feet above the sea gives viewing a truly panoramic quality. Grand Outlook Castle is a photographer's dream come true. Come and bring your camera. Anguilla is a sleepy little island named after an eel due to its shape. Twenty years ago, it began to open its eyes and realized it had no industry to promote and less to do. Locals could barely grow any crops. They had beaches and blue water, but they always had that and took it for granted. Not until outside interests were searching for virgin beaches, did Anguillans discover what was right under their noses: unrivaled beaches and ocean that surpassed any in the world. Resorts soon began to invade the shoreline: Cap Juluca, Cuisinart, Malliouhana, all five star resorts. Meanwhile, the rest of the Caribbean was building on every square inch of land with no limitations and became very commercialized. Fortunately, Anguilla has remained a sleepy island, but now the locals have jobs, employed by the resorts and their friendly demeanor reflects their gratitude for tourism. It is the ideal place for a quiet retreat, tranquil, serene, and private.Although the general dictum for an island hotelier is 'don't leave the beach', Paul Alegria followed his heart and built the newest villa on the top of a mountain in the form of a castle. Although the island is only 16 miles long and 3 miles wide, GRAND OUTLOOK CASTLE is a secret. Ask anyone on the island where it is and nearly all will

ASTOUNDING VIEWS ! plus superb host!
This property is on one of the highest points of the island of Anguilla and has incredible views of the ocean and of Crocus Bay which turned out to be one of our go-to beaches during our 8 night stay. The property is fully equipped with everything you possibly need, and the home construction itself is top of the line. Our rental included a minivan rental for the entire stay, and our host arranged the rental, our ferry from St. Maarten, as well as all other details of our stay plus sent great information about Anguilla, local sights, grocery stores, and restaurants. The assistance of this property owner went far and above anything we expected, and you could not possibly get more for your money without booking with a high end tour company. The host had staff on the island who were available as needed and took superb care of us. Our traveling party included my wife and three teenagers plus two teenage friends, and everyone completely enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking at Anguilla who wishes to stay in a private residence. Kudos to this owner for providing a wonderful experience for my family!
This villa is exactly as pictured and was immaculate. Such a slice of heaven for me and my kids over spring break, and Paul couldn't have made the process or the trip more smooth. It's perched above beautiful Crocus Bay, with a great beach/calm waters below, and a great restaurant (
Davida) which also allows use of their chairs and rental of water equipment. We paddle boated to Little Bay & enjoyed an isolated beach. Loved how the house had little nooks with hammocks and lounge chairs off of each room, and the pool is stunning. Must do's: day trip to Prickly Pear, sunset cruise with Calypso. Catch the sunset at dinner at Four Seasons restaurant, casual dinner on the beach at Blanchard's, breakfast on the beach at Straw Hat on Mead's Bay. We are in love with Anguilla, and Paul helped arrange everything so we didn't have to stress. I would rent this home again in a hearbeat!
Our group of 7 (two families) stayed for 8 nights at Grand Outlook Castle. Everything was perfect. It was our third trip to Anguilla, but our first time at GOC. We would definitely return. The view was amazing, the pool was perfect, and we loved the hammocks! Paul offered lots of assistance with arranging transport to Anguilla from SXM, and to the Castle from the ferry. The staff was great, helpful but not intrusive. A great location to explore the rest of Anguilla as well!
You have made our hope for the future stronger.
What you so thoughtfully describe is exactly how we want all Grand Outlook Castle's wonderful guests to feel.
As we like to say at the castle...
"It's not all about the money,
it IS all about the Priceless!' Alegria'
Thanks You AGAIN Michelle,
Have a wonderful summer and see you back to True Paradise SOON!

Another Memorable Stay at the Castle
This was our second visit to the Castle (previous time was in 2017 before Hurricane Irma). My wife and I have stayed at many villas throughout the Caribbean over the past 35 years and we have stayed at other properties on Anguilla. We had another relaxing and memorable stay at the Castle.
The team has done an incredible job restoring the Castle, given how damaging Hurricane Irma was. The new ice maker works great! The kitchen is still very well equipped, and we ended up eating most of our meals there once again this time so that we could enjoy the sunset views and relax around the pool all day and evening. The grocery stores are still very well stocked, and we were able to find everything we needed.
The internet continues to work very well, and we had no problem using our iPhones for several important calls back home using the WIFI internet phone capability on our iPhones.
We went for long walks almost every morning, and felt very safe. While there is still work being done around the island, Anguilla has made tremendous progress compared to what we saw in St. Martin. We had no problem finding many old restaurants we had visited before, as well as some new ones. The Anguilla beaches are still some of the prettiest I have seen in the world.
Rolyn, the housekeeper, and Vivian, the gardener, are still there and continue to do a fantastic job. They are both very friendly and helpful, and very respectful of our privacy. Paul and Elise were delightful to work with again in planning our return trip, assisting with arrival and departure forms, ferries, and car rentals. We enjoyed our time at the Castle, and we look forward to our return visit!!
Home away from home
Once again, the Grand Outlook Castle impressed us. After 7 years, we still always really look forward to returning to the castle. Getting to the castle is always a breeze as Paul organises everything from airport pick up to minute details at the villa. It is always clean and well maintained. Plenty of good restaurants and beautiful beaches. I would recommend the Grand Outlook Castle to anyone that would like a heavenly vacation.
WOW! Vanessa, has it been seven years already???
ALWAYS a pleasure to have you and your family visit us again and again...here @ Grand Outlook Castle
AM working with David on your 2020 dates!
Exceeded our expectations after Irma.
Our 3rd stay at this wonderful Villa. Paul & Elise are the most accommodating owners that put an unsurmountable amount of work and energy into bringing the Castle back. To take full advantage of this perfect setting, we had Chef Tyrone come in to prepare a lovely dinner on the outside patio. The Castle is back and we hope to come back as well.
You and your group's coming back is the greatest of all compliments to the beautiful island of Anguilla and Grand Outlook Castle.
