Our stay at Shoal Bay Villas was fantastic overall, You could not find lodging that is closer to one of the best beaches on the Island, within 100 yards walking distance of great food (Menoah) and drinks (Orlajs...Rum Punch). Great umbrellas (reserved for your stay so you don't have to wake up early to fight for your space), soft sand, blue water. This place has a real family type atmosphere, Kathy and her daughters are available before you arrive (communicating before arrival on protocols and paperwork needed), when you arrive (needed to quarantine for about half a day and made sure we had dinner, breakfast) and departure. The other guests were very friendly - most had been coming back from 10 to 30yrs and offered fantastic restaurant suggestions. The room had a good size bedroom with comfortable bed and good AC, updated bathroom, galley kitchen, and living room with glass sliders that open to a patio just steps to the beach. Nothing too fancy overall, but comfortable and very, very clean! We plan on definitely going back as a couple, or doing a family trip with our college age plus children. Not sure there is enough activities and beach toys for the younger set - but we arrived the first week of November and not all the beachside spa's and sports/activity shacks along the beach were open. Anguilla and Shoal Bay Villas is a magical combination.
