I recently visited the “magical” island of Anguilla and stayed at the newly renovated West End Bay Apartments. After quite a bit of research and a lengthy conversation with the owner of the development (Carl) I decided to reserve a one bedroom unit. Upon arrival, Carl graciously escorted us to our third floor unit which was beautifully appointed, with imported 2’ x 2’ marble tile, Silestone kitchen counter-tops, dark wood cabinets, stylish rattan furniture in the dining/living room, patio doors leading to a private terrace (with a view of the ocean and St Maarten in the distance) and a spacious master bedroom with a massive walk-in closet. The apartment/condo had a fully equipped and nicely designed kitchen, two flat screen TV’s, free calling to anywhere in the US and Canada, free wireless internet, central air conditioning, a spacious bathroom and a brand new, full size washer/dryer. Needless to say, I immediately knew I had made the right decision and was extremely impressed by Carl’s attention to detail and “eager to please” personality. The island of Anguilla is by far the most serene, safe and exotic island in the Caribbean. The beaches are stunning, restaurants are remarkable and the locals are friendly, helpful and welcoming! If you love exotic beaches, water sports, magnificent sunsets and fabulous food, Anguilla is the place for you. If you want to stay at an attractive, well kept property for the best value on the island, then look no further and book the West End Bay Apartments! I am already searching for flights and plan to return in April.
We were quite pleased with these apartments. They were nicer than expected. They have huge verandas that are shaded. The view isn't perfect but still nice. There are full sized washer/dryer in the unit- very handy (bring powder HE detergent.) There is a grocery about 5 minutes down the road. You will need to go there for drinks, food. Don't forget coffee filters! I bought some and left them in the unit we were in. The apartments are cleaned daily and towels are washed for you. Very good service! The air cond, tvs, internet all work well. The walk to the beach was longer than expected but wasn't a big deal as we rented a car all week and explored about 10 different beaches on the island (highly recommended). The price is great which makes up for the lack of amenities. We will be back!
We were looking for affordable accommodation on Anguilla during the Christmas period for a budget of $200 per night.
We could not afford the beach front accomodations within our budget and chose the West End Bay which is centrally located at the west end of the island.
However, we were very happy with the comfortable new accommodation and also the friendly service.
The rooms were clean, bright, air conditioned and had a modern kitchen with GE appliances.
Carl the owner was very friendly, picked us up from the ferry port and provided us with good quality beach chairs and umbrella.
The apartments are a 2 minute drive from the lovely Shoal bay west beach and very close to all west end beaches and restaurants.
If you are looking for good value accommodation and do not mind thst you are not directly on the beach then you should consider the West End Bay.
I have been meaning to write this review. When I was in Anguilla I explored a lot and dropped by many places both on and off the water. I already knew I would return to Anguilla but maybe stay somewhere more affordable next time. I prefer to stay right on the beach but would certainly consider West End Bay if that wasn't possible. What made me stop? West End Bay looked pristine from the road. It appeared new, clean and attractive. I actually turned the car around to go back. A man (I can't remember his name) took us up the elevator to a beautiful apartment. It was in the building behind the roadside one. The inside was as nice as the outside. Upscale accommodations including very pretty furniture. They don't have a pool and there isn't an onsite restaurant so that might be an issue for some. On a future trip I would stay in the roadside building since I think you would have the best view from there and be sure to rent a car. In reality, I think I could stay anywhere in Anguilla and be happy.
We stayed at West End Bay in October. Carl is super and really went out of his way to make sure our vacation was top notch. The unit is new and very nice. It is well decorated, very clean, and has everything you need for a week in paradise. I look forward to our next trip to Anguilla and West End Bay.
Yes you CAN afford to stay in Anguilla if you come to these properties, the best value on the island that we have found.. Carl the owner is relaxed, kind and helpful and Malita who works incredibly hard to keep the place clean, is a gem and mine of information.
This is excellent value, very clean, well appointed, each flat is beautifully equipped and comfortable, the bedroom is spacious and comfortable, the equipment is modern and works to high USA standards.
If you don't want to hire a car, it is easy to walk to several quality restaurants and also to wonderfully deserted beaches of white powdered sand and crystal turquoise waters. A supermarket is pretty close and the roads are quiet enough to walk on. This is a restful part of the island, well away from the Valley in the centre.
We returned from Anguilla two days ago and I miss it already. I found West End Bay while searching for accommodations online, and I couldn't be happier with our decision to stay. From our first email correspondence, Carl, (the owner) was more than helpful; providing details about the area, lining up our ferry/taxi, onsite car rental, etc. He is welcoming and generous, and went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. The units are very well appointed, providing everything from beach chairs & umbrellas to pots, pans and a blender. They are modern, spacious, and well laid out. Malita did a fantastic job making everything sparkle, and really made us feel like family. We will definitely go back to Anguilla, and when we do, we will stay at West End Bay!
Anguilla is so beautiful! We just returned from a 6-day vacation. Our stay at West End Bay Hopiday Apartments was terrific. The accomidations were just as described: clean, well appointed and maintained. Carl, the owner, was extremely helpful and responsive in every regard, both during our stay and via email as we made our plans prior to arrival. He had great suggestions for meals and entertainment, beaches to visit, etc, and arranged for a rental car to be brought to the site for our arrival. There were chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and noodles for us to use the entire stay. The kitchen was fully equiped and the in-uint washer and dryer were greatly appreciated, given that we had been on vacation in St. Martin the prior week and arrived with suitcases full of laundry. The A/C worked very well. The king bed was so comfortable. There was maid service every weekday (not on Sat/Sun). The one bedroom unit we stayed in was spacious and the two bedroon units we toured looked just as spacious. See if you can arrange to stay on the top floor (there is an elevator) for the view. You can see the ocean from the kitchen windows in one direction and from the living room/balcony in the other direction. The prices in this "off-season" were very reasonable. We are definitely returning!
I was in Anguilla for a wedding and West End Bay holiday apartments was one of the places recommended for guest of the wedding. It was so easy to make and pay for my reservations. I emailed Carl(the owner) and he emailed me the forms which I emailed back to him. Carl emailed me when it was close to my arrival date to let me know he would be off the island but his assistant Malita could be there to greet me when I arrive. Malita became a friend and a great resource. She keeps the apartments spot less. I plan to return to Anguilla and West End Bay will be my lodging of choice. There is a kitchen in the apartment which is fully stocked with utensils, small and large appliances, there is a Supermarket within close proximity to stock up on food items.
YOU WILL NEED TO RENT A CAR. They drive on the left side but is was not difficult for us coming from the U.S. to drive in Anguilla; the Island is small and since it was the off season the roads were not crowded, so driving there was easy.
Secondly, during Anguilla's off season, which is approximately August to November, some restaurants close because there are less tourist during that time. However, I think it's the best time to visit, there are enough open restaurants and clubs for you to have a great time, just make sure you have your rental car to get around.
The units also has full sized washer and dryer, with a utility tub. There is also an elevator so you do not have to struggle with your luggage up the stairs. Need I say more, this is the place to stay....home away from home. Thank you Carl and Malita for taking such good care of me.
My husband and I rented a one-bedroom unit at West End Bay Apartments for a week in mid-November. This was our second trip to Anguilla. Several years ago we spent 3 nights at LaVue, which was nice, affordable and well-located, but I wanted more space for a full week.
After arriving on the island, we took at taxi from the ferry dock at Blowing Point to the apartments ($22). We were greeted by Melita, the manager, who showed us around and gave us our keys. Carl, the owner, arrived later to greet us and to invite us to his birthday party that evening. He had invited everyone in the building! This is the friendliest island in the Caribbean. Where else would this happen?? It was so nice of him and it was a great way to feel part of the “neighborhood”. During the week we kept running into people who we had met at the party.
The apartment was very nice. We didn’t cook much because the restaurants on the island are so good, but we did appreciate having a coffee pot (filters were in the cabinet, bring your own coffee) , full size fridge/freezer, full size oven and gas stove. The people on the first floor used a charcoal grill in the courtyard area, but we didn’t go to the trouble. There was a blender, toaster, built-in microwave. Everything was clean and in working order.
We did use the full size HE washer and dryer a couple of times to wash the beach towels that were provided with the unit. I brought some Tide pods but there was detergent there. There was also a laundry sink, which was nice so we could wash out our swimwear before packing it for the trip home.
Bathroom was great, with tiled shower stall with glass doors. Nice bath products, conditioner, bath gel, lotion. Fresh towels were provided about every other day.
We had the unit on the top floor, which had nice views in both directions. From the front balcony, you could look past the salt pond out to the ocean and St. Maarten. From the kitchen window, you could see the waves crashing onto the rocks at a small cove. We walked down the dirt path beside the West End Bay apartments to check it out and it was larger than I expected, but not a place you would spend a day.
I highly recommend West End Bay apartments. Send the owner an email and ask about renting a car through him. It was very convenient and the quality of the car was better than what we had on our first time on the island. You will need a car, as this is on the far western end of the island. You can walk to Shoal Bay West and Trattoria, but everything else is at least a 5 min drive (grocery store, Picante) or further (25 min to Gwen's on Shoal Bay East).
We decided to take our son, his wife and our grandchild this year based on our amazing experiences from past years. And West End Bay delivered. Adjoining apartments for easy access and Carl and the staff were most accomodating. This property is really a remarkable value. Luxury accomodations, comfortable and the amenities for a home away from home experience. I recommend to all my Carribeophiles.
We loved West End Bay Apartments!
This was our first visit to Anguilla. We rented the third floor two bedroom suite facing the salt pond with a view of the sea and St. Maarten and St. Barts beyond from the balcony and from the one of the bedrooms. Views of the sea on other side from the kitchen sink and second bedroom.
Waking every morning to the sunrise was a treat. I enjoyed sitting on the enormous balcony, either at the glass top table or in their comfortable and very stylish loungers as Anguilla awoke, there are birds galore in the salt pond across the street and in the foliage around the apartment, the goats, cats and cow in the lots on either side of the apartment are a hoot and add to the cacophony. Fun as well to watch the young people gathering to catch the school bus each morning looking immaculate in their uniforms and watching the locals walking or driving to work.
The apartments are spotless and as described well appointed. The king size beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept in - really fantastic. We couldn't hear our neighbours. We had three flat screen televisions which we tuned to jazz or classical stations. The wifi is excellent and fast enough to stream music while my partner worked as needed. The bedrooms have bedside lamps for reading and black out blinds, curtains and windows that open out to catch the breeze. We did not need to use the AC. The washer and dryer are modern and wonderful to have.
WEBA is really exceptional value and we would stay here again. No one we met knew about this apartment hotel. I hope to help change this.
If you stay make sure you bring a few essentials from home like salt and pepper, spices, tin foil, hot sauce, olive oil, shrink wrap or baggies, misquito spray and avoid having to purchase them on the island.
Malita the housekeeper is a lovely woman, helpful, thoughtful and sweet as can be. She had cut flowers from the garden in a vase for us upon our arrival and a fresh batch later in the week. Carl is attentive, very interested in his guests and so relaxed. We had arranged for a car with the apartment rental, he would have arranged to pick us up at the ferry but we had rented a villa the previous week in the eastern most end. The vehicle was excellent, clean, newish, good cd player. We had no problem driving on the left - just kept saying to each other "left, left, left.
On check out day we were delighted to learn that Carl would allow us to to use the car after checking out and asked us to simply leave it at the ferry terminal for him to pick up later. Excellent as this meant we could visit our favorite beach and leave our bags in the trunk.
Carl is a font of information, his passion is fishing, diving and the sea. He will advise where and when to snorkel etc. His family also rents out bicycles, paddle boards and kayaks. I met his father in law Maclen who works at their east end market The Anchor Supermarket, our first day on the island. We both laughed when we realized we were staying our second week at the West End Bay Apartments which is run and owned by his daughter Meesha and Carl. He gave us his number and invited us to call should we have questions or need assistance. He offered to take us snorkeling one day. This I did do which was fantastic.
Maclene's passion is spear fishing (note only locals are permitted to spear fish) and he took me out off a beach near his market and out to a reef about one hundred yards off the shore. We saw loads of coral, schools of fish as well as a mantaray. I really enjoyed watching him fish, was somewhat scared as the sea was rough and my calve was cramping - he took care to ensure I felt safe. I really enjoyed watching him spear fish.
You are minutes away from what turned out to be our favorite places: Trattoria Tramonto, a charming Italian eatery, good for lunch, great wine and cocktail list, you may utilize their comfortable beach chairs/umbrella and spend the day on their fantastic beach. There is excellent beach combing here as well. Close as well is The Viceroy, Sunset lounge for an evening snack - this hotel is absolutely stunning, we were not impressed with the food but the cocktails were first rate.
We spent two days at Maundays Bay at Cap Juluca - gorgeous beach (brought our own beach chairs and cooler), I ate lunch at the Blue, not great but beautiful grounds, architecture, excellent friendly service, we did not eat at either Pimms or Spice their evening restaurants.
You are also very close to Rendezvous Bay our absolute favorite beach, we had the best snacks at The Place, coconut shrimp and jerk chicken quesidillas. It is to the left if you are facing the beach. On this beach as well is The Dune for live music in the evening as well as Cuisinart.
We visited Cuisineart our final day - had a very disappointing barbeque lunch, (upside was that this includes the use of their beach loungers and towels), however, the fresh squeezed orange juice was delicious as was the lemon juice. The grounds here are fantastic as is the architecture, the staff are first rate, happily singing when the mood moves them, friendly and professional. We will in future eat at their Mediterranean restaurant.
There is an excellent wine store about 12 minutes from the apartment which we utilized. Next to that is a fabulous bakery - eatery that has the best coffee, baked goods and delicious lunches, quiche, tuna tartar salads and wine by the glass - yummm!
I love to body surf and was able to do this at Meads Bay. We ate lunch at Blanchards and rented a beach chair. The tacos were excellent and good value, my partners tuna salad was apparently not very exciting.
Our biggest challenge was not succumbing to the urge to see everything and eat at all the recommended restaurants. We watched the sunset and ate at home most evenings. I also dined at Tasty's, had pumpkin soup and conch fritters which were both excellent. I was served by a lovely young woman who served me quickly as I was in a hurry.
I do regret not eating at one of the food trucks - Jazzy's in particular.
Again, stay here you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Carl, Malita and Meesha! We hope to stay with you again soon.
Warm regards, Kellie and Sara
We spent 20 days at Westendbay apartments this January,Carl was very helpful and always makes sure you get everything you need. He went out of his was to please you. Highly recommended!
This is not beachfront property but who cares since you will be visiting a different beach everyday..
My fiance and I spent 5 days at West End Bay Holiday Apartments at the end of December 2013. The unit was very clean, well kept, and the location was great. Not directly on the Beach, but a short 5 minute drive to the most beautiful stretch of beaches you could ever find. Close to great restaurants, grocery store, you really don't need much more than this.
Carl, the ownder/manager, was of great help, greeting us at the ferry terminal upon our arrival, and dropping us back off at the end of our stay. He also arranged for our car rental and had that waiting for us upon our arrival as well. He was very helpful and available during the entirety of our stay if we had questions.
We highly recommend this property.
We just returned in Jan and had an excellent stay at West End Bay apartments. We had all the amenities we needed, plus the excellent location on the West End. We are already planning to return to in August. We now have a place we can call home whenever we visit Anquilla and new friends.
My wife and I spent 8 nights at the west end bay apartments and really enjoyed our stay. The apartments are 5 minutes driving time to our favorite beach meads bay, and about 10 minutes driving time to rendezvous bay and maundays bay, both of which are among the top beaches on the island. 25 minutes driving time to shoal bay east. The best buy grocery store is also only 5 minutes away.
The owner, Carl, is really great to work with. He is always prompt, friendly, and was able to answer any questions I had.
The apartment has any beach gear you could possibly need, from beach chairs and cooler, to snorkeling gear.
Inside the apartment there is plenty of space, a nice walk in closet, king size bed, nice kitchen, and a washer and dryer. All appliances work well.
We would stay again, and we'd recommend these apartments to other couples as well.
My husband and I spent a glorious month at West End Bay apartments from Mid Jan to Mid Feb 2014. The apartment was well equipped, clean and has a very comfortable bed. Bonus was the snorkel gear, cooler, beach umbrella and chairs. Carl was always available for any questions and Melita was great with the housekeeping making sure to work around our schedule. The beaches in Anguilla are by far the best in the Caribbean, probably the world! This was our third trip back to Anguilla and first time at West End Bay, will be booking next years stay shortly.
It's our 2nd year in this beautiful place & we'll definitely return again & again!
Great confortable accomodations in a beautiful setting. It's just like being at home with friendly & adorable people taking care of all you need.
Carl is definitely the nr.1! Such a professional and an efficient host. He's always helpful & quick on the draw. The apartments are fully equipped & well decorated with everything you might need indoor & outdoor.
Malita, the lovely housekeeper, provides dayly cleaning & fresh towels. The apartments are located in a quite area nearby some of the best beaches of the island.
Pure luxury at reasonable price. We heartily recommand this place for an unforgettable & no worries fabulous holiday! See you next year West End Bay!
Our first trip to Anguilla did not disappoint and the West End Bay Luxury Apartment was a big part of a wonderful trip. The owner Carl and his manager Malita attended to all our needs and had our villa in perfect condition. The west end location turned out to be close to world class beaches and restaurants. My wife and I will definitely be back and we will make reservations with Carl.
Just returned from a wonderful 10 day vacation in Anguilla, and 99% of what made it wonderful was our choice to stay at West End Holiday Apartments. The remaining 1 % was the restaurants that we visited.
Where do I begin...Carl and Malita were just such a pleasure to deal with--you can't get any better than these two folks.
We stayed on the top floor and the view is fantastic--we loved watching the lights in St. Marten--which is right there to see in perfect sight.
The interior was extremely clean, with really modern furnishings--Cable TV in the living room as well as the bedroom, and a full kitchen with appliances that worked beautifully. And air-conditioning in the Living Room and Kitchen with a separate unit in the bedroom. They worked incredibly fast and where extremely quiet. Never used the L/R unit but for one afternoon..The bed was absolutely perfect.
Having a washer and dryer--to me at least---very important. These as well as the the dishwasher in the kitchen worked perfectly.
Beach Chairs, Umbrellas, full snorkel equipment, and a coleman cooler are there--with two floatees if you just want to float the afternoon away in the ocean.
Coming from the beach everyday--cleaning sand off our feet using the "foot wash" , then hopping on the elevator ( yes an elevator !!!)--making a drink and sitting on our terrace---one of our most memorable moments from this trip. It was an "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!" Moment. Total relaxation , taking in the sights.
Luxury furnishings, all modern conveniences , great people to deal with, reasonable rates ( extremely reasonable rates)---what are you waiting for.
We highly recommend West End Holiday Apartments , you can thank us later in your review.
Thanks Carl and Malita--we had the best time ever !
We stayed at the West End Bay this February for 10 nights. This was our fourth visit to Anguilla, but our first time staying at West End Bay. The property is very convenient to the beach at Shoal Bay West, and dinging venues like Picante and Blanchard's. This property exceeded my expectations.
I think you would be hard-pressed to find such a fantastic value on the island! The property is very tidy, and the units were quite large. It was great to have a full size washer/dryer in your apartment.
Malita is very kind and would pick flowers and greenery from the property to put in a vase in the apartment. So charming - who else does that?! They have coolers, chairs and umbrellas there for you on arrival so you can start your days at the beach immediately. Carl the owner was super to deal with. Very patient, professional and all around nice fella. We look forward to more trips to W.E.B. in the future!
We have stayed one week at the Holiday Apartments. The location is lovely if you are looking for a peaceful stay in Anguilla. We loved that! Carl and Melita really took care of me and my husband.
The facilities in the flat are nice. The flat is spacious, the bed very nice and so were the pillows. They offered chairs and an umbrella to the beach and snorkel equipment! We have brought our own but fantastic that theses were offered!
We also rented a car from Carl and it was simple and uncomplicated to do it. Very good.
The stayed would have been absolutely perfect if there could have been organized a pick up at the Blowing Terminal where the ferry arrived from Marigot. We took a taxi to the apartments and is costed 22 US dollars.
Anguilla is lovely but very expensive. Be ready for that!
We spent 5 nights in one of the apartments. Huge apartment for the two of us with a nice kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and livingroom. The apartment ha d everything we could wish for.
A rental car is needed to be able to explore this lovely island. Beaches nearby I recommend is Meads Bay, Maundays Bay and Rendezvous Bay.
Meads bay was in my opinion even more beautiful than Shoal Bay East wich is on the opposite side of the island.
I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice, clean apartment with good cooking abilities.
During our stay we could bring two beach chairs and snorkeling equipment from the apartment wich was really nice.
My wife and I have been staying with Carl for 4 years. Carl and Melita are two of the loveliest people we know. They will make you feel right at home and comfortable. The apts are awesome and are a great value. Big nice bed, the whole apt and bathroom is appointed in travertine limestone. Wifi and free calls to the US. Flat screen TVs, although, we never turn it on. Also, very close to some of the best, most beautiful beaches on Anguilla. Ask Carl about renting a car, his mother rents them. About $50-60 a day depending on the car. Taxis are expensive, so I recommend renting a car. Their is too much to see in Anguilla! Right up the road, their is a new supermarket. Stock up on groceries, because all the apts have beautiful kitchens. Make some breakfast, pack a lunch and hit the beaches.
We just got married here and we rented the entire apt complex and the villa from Carl. That man went above and beyond for us. He is incredible. Look no further. Stay here!
My favorite place to stay in Anguilla and the world!! We took all the apartments in the complex for our wedding and everyone of us loved it!! Carl and Malita are the most amazing hosts. They helped us with every detail and made our trip seamless and unforgettable. The apartments are beautiful and beyond comfortable. I love having a washer and dryer and full kitchen. They provide beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment and beach towels. Each apartment has a balcony and comfy furniture to enjoy the spectacular views and daily rainbow sightings!! This is the only place I stay in Anguilla and can not wait to return! Thank you for making our wedding absolutely unforgettable!
Anguilla is a beautiful, remote, quite and peaceful little island. Many of the resorts are very expensive especially during the winter season. Once I realized I could not afford a resort/hotel that was directly on the beach..I started searching condos/apartments/villas. West End Bay Apartments is a great value for the amenities and location. Carl and Melita will take good care of you!!! We rented a car and explored the island. What a slice of Heaven!!
What sets West End Bay apart from other rentals is the outstanding customer service and attention to detail provided by Carl. From my first email and throughout my stay we got personal attention, very quick responses, all our needs and wants were met and surpassed. Carl really read my emails and understood my needs, a nice view was a very high on the list as was internet access, after all I would be working for an hour or so every morning! He booked us in the 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor, I was sold.
We had an elevator, local phone calls as well as calls to the US and Canada were included in the rate. The amenities listed are all in primo condition, great washer and dryer, dishwasher, AC and ceiling fans in ALL rooms, flat screen TVs with remote control in ALL rooms, with the consideration of printed channel guides, ya so I did not have to go thru 700 channels to get local NY news (that is attention to detail!), blender, coffee maker (with filters), complete pot, pans, plates, utensil set including corkscrew better than what we have at home, and those blessed beach chairs, 2 that lie flat and 2 camping type sit up chairs, plus umbrellas, cooler and snorkel equipment also available, vacation savers! We did not have to pay a dime for chair or umbrella rental to go to any of the outstanding beaches 3 of which are right next to you! Grab your beach chairs and do like we did, go see Junks Hole, Sandy Hill Bay, Island Harbour, Shoal Bay East, Crocus Bay, Sandy Ground, Sandy Island, Long Bay, Meads Bay, Barnes Bay, Little Harbour, Rendezvous Bay, Cove Bay, Maundys Bay and closest to you Shoal Bay West.
The king beds were very comfy, couches even more comfy, cool pod dining table indoors, terrace with table for 4 with chairs as well as 2 loungers with the salt pond in front and views of the ocean and the far distance. We gorged on those views in the morning with coffee and reveled in viewing local life! To the left was what had to be a small farm with goats the number of which I lost count, watching the farmer come out to tether the babies in the morning and pulling down branches so the babies could eat, seeing the children come out in the morning accompanied by their dogs to wait for the school bus precious!. Best was the star gazing in the evenings on that terrace, what a light show! The moonlight glistening on the salt pond was a sight like no other. For a moment in time, in quiet Anguillan neighborhood, on the far West End, we were home.
Don't think twice about staying at West End Bay, a contemporary, well run property that offers all the amenities and is a great value. Carl is a wonderful, present and responsive owner/manager and Melita the housekeeper is very sweet and accommodating, she will service your room 6 days a week.
My husband and I have visited Anguilla 17 times. West End Bay is by far the best value for your money - granite countertops, a/c, DW, W&D, views of Atlantic & Caribbean, all screened windows, elevator, BIG bathroom and walk-in closet, free phone svs to US! Located near all the west end restaurants - big plus! Close to many of the Anguilla's beautiful beaches! This may seem trivial - but for all the places we've stayed, this is the first one where we didn't have to deal with ants (and NO mosquitos). Looking forward to our next stay.
On a business trip and needed connection.... and I got it at West End Bay.. Excellent internet and phone service.. Call back to US .. free !!!.
Lots of space in living room for working... Well equipped kitchen, bathrooms.. wow !!!
Very comfortable and productive stay...
Will definitely stay here again..
In a beautiful island known for expensive and exclusive resorts, this property is a jewel that will certainly exceed your expectations, especially if you are looking for a nice place to stay in paradise without having to break the bank.
No, it is not right on the beach, but you will have two beautiful beaches literally within walking distance: Shoal Bay West and West End Bay. Furthermore, the location is very quiet and peaceful and you will get to see some of Anguilla's rural life and enjoy beautiful evenings gazing at the moon and thousands of stars from your balcony.
West End apartments are located only a seven minute drive from Best Buy grocery store, where you will find everything you need for self catering including a good selection of wines, beer and liquors. The property is also located close to a wide variety of great restaurants and other resorts.
Beautifully appointed and spacious apartments that are fully air conditioned and have pretty much anything that you may need during your vacation. Comfortable beds, full kitchen with gas range and all necessary cooking utensils, refrigerator, dish washer, washer and dryer, walk-in closet, etc. The furnishings are good quality as well as all the tile work and finishes. Though we only watched TV once or twice before we went to bed, the flat screen T.V.'s offered plenty of channel selections to watch. Also, the free wifi worked reasonably well.
Melita and Carl are great. They will take great care of you since the moment you place your reservation until you leave. We did not see Carl very much, but we know he was always caring about all of our needs. He can arrange car and bike rentals, fishing trips and many other services for you.
Melita will keep your unit spotlessly clean and she is a very sweet lady.
They have an elevator so you won't have to haul your stuff upstairs. They also have free calls to the U.S. and Canada!
Overall, we can't speak highly enough of West End Apartments. We hope that they keep up the good work and we look forward to many visits in the future. Thank you guys!
West End Bay is a great place to stay when visiting Anguilla. I have stayed here several times in the past and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for very nice accommodations at an affordable rate. The bedrooms are very nice size with large bathrooms and all rooms have a modern day tile and granite finishes. Having your own washer and dryer is a huge plus as you don't have to pack as many clothes and you can take clean clothes home rather than a suitcase full of dirty clothes. The location is not right on the beach but you still have views of both the Caribbean and Atlantic. There is also no swimming pool but who cares, you have 33 beaches to explore who has time for a pool?!! At West End Bay you are treated like family!
The location is fantastic as it is very close to amazing dining options and also the new Best Buy supermarket. This is a truly modern day Supermarket with everything you could ever want or need. In my opinion West End Bay Holiday Apartments is by far the best value on the island.
The folks at West End Bay will also arrange a vehicle for you...I highly recommend renting a car rather than paying for Taxi service.
Although we only stayed one night, to be at the Anguilla Carnival for J'ouvert Monday, the hotel was lovely and Carl was a fantastic host. Our reservation at another Anguilla hotel was messed up entirely and we were referred to Carl at West End Bay Apartments. After such a nice experience, we will never stay anywhere else but West End Bay Apartments on all future Anguilla trips! Carl arranged transportation for us with a local driver upon our request as soon as we arrived, and within an hour, we were unpacked and headed to the Cove Bay beach. The rooms are so comfortable with beautiful modern furnishings, AC, full kitchen with appliances, flat screen TVs, and Internet. The view and the privacy are both welcome after a day seeing sights and beaches of Anguilla.
Several years ago I wrote a review of West End Bay Apartments, and I've returned to this hidden gem ever since. The property is well maintained, management is superb, staff is very attentive and the cost is quite attractive.
The perks of being in this semi-secluded area is that you can easily drown yourself in the comforts of its tranquility. There is a beach at the exterior of the property - short two minute walk - or you can hop in a rental (also an option provided through West End Bay's management at an affordable cost) to any of the nearby beaches.
The 'apartments' are properly suited with energy star appliances, and afford anyone the ability to feel right at home while on vacation in another country.
I've been travelling to Anguilla for decades, and never have I experienced a team like this one.
Our most recent trip was to celebrate my mom's birthday, and she had an enjoyable time.
Guess we'll be there next year!
The place is tucked away in the West of the island in a somewhat residential area which adds to the special island experience. Waking up to a rooster crowing is priceless and running down the street to catch the ice cream truck to buy local SourSup ice cream was a blast. Upon arrival, the rental vehicle was ready and waiting. Melita met us and showed us to the room. The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. I really liked the modern decor. The kitchen was also perfect. A washer and dryer is also included and the small elevator was a blessing late at nights and when I needed to carry items upstairs. Service was excellent. Melita was always helpful and kept the place in great condition. I emailed and spoke to Carl prior to visiting and he was also very responsive. I had a wonderful stay and would definitely choose this location again.
Carl was so amazing the week we were there. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable in all aspects of our honeymoon vacation. We traded several emails about accommodations almost a year in advance & he was quick to respond to emails & phone calls. West End Bay Apts were very clean & spacious & had all the amenities we could ask for with an amazing view in a quiet location. Carl took care of all the details for us & we simply showed up & enjoyed the sun.
We flew into SXM & took the ferry to Anguilla & he set us up with a cab from the SXM airport to Marigot ferry, so as soon as we landed there was someone waiting for us. Then he picked us up from the Anguilla Blowing Point Ferry station to take us to our apartment as soon as it landed, so we never waited around & hit the beach sooner.
Carl was amazing until the last day we left. On the morning we were leaving he was taking another couple to the ferry (6:30 AM ferry charter appointment) but we wanted to pick up pastries, so he let us drive ourselves in the AM while he took the other couple. We were supposed to take GB Express as our ferry shuttle to SXM airport, since the public ferry didn't start until 7:30AM. He stayed to see us off, which was a life saver! Our ferry was not there by 6:45 AM so Carl got on the phone immediately with GB Express to see what was going on to make sure that we didn't get charged for the charter & instead set us up to go on the Funtime Charter, which was there by 6:30 AM. (They were awesome by the way & we’ll use them next time!!) He made sure we had a way to get back to SXM so we made our 8:45 AM departure. Even as we were on the boat leaving Anguilla, we saw him at the dock making sure we were all set. That goes far and beyond customer service! He had also asked us earlier in the week if we needed him to set us up with a charter to SXM & we let him know that we had already set it up, but we were lucky in the end to have him there to set us up at the last minute.
View/Location/Room: West End Bay Apartments is 1 minute from Shoal Bay West & less than 5 mins from Meads, with a close grocery store. The view was amazing in our room with St. Marten & the ocean from one side & then another ocean view from the back side. The room was up to date & had a great kitchen that we used several mornings for breakfast. The best part was the equipment that he provided as part of the room. He provided each room with 2 sunbrellas (which we used everyday since there wasn't shade on the beaches), cooler, chairs, water noodles & scuba fins. The room itself was very spacious & very clean with AC!
Car Rental: We rented a car through Carl & it was ready for us as soon as we got to the apartment. It was a nice & clean compact SUV, which was fun to drive around. Process was quick & easy & affordable as well. I’d recommend a car since the island doesn’t have a public transportation system and his rates were among the best of other rentals and it was super easy.
We just returned from West End Bay Holiday Apartments and it was a terrific find. Carl was helpful on every occasion from the booking process until we left. The apartment was spotless, front building third floor, we had a constant breeze and a beautiful view of St. Martin. I will be back.

Well located on the West End of Anguilla, convenient to amazing beaches and great restaurants. Clean, spacious, simple accommodations. Carl Irish is a most gracious host. Makes you feel right at home for your stay.
West End Bay Holiday Apartments provide an ideal environment for your Anguilla experience. Close to spectacular beaches (Rendezvous Bay being our favorite), shopping, wine and food, the apartments are spacious with good cooking facilities. Carl Irish, the owner is a lovely person and he and his staff will do all that is possible to make your trip spectacular. This is an Anguillan owned business which means that you are boosting the local economy. We have stayed here several times. Great for walking, running, exploring and beaching!
Carl and team made my stay extra comfortable. The apartment was clean, a good size, loved the full kitchen and overall provided a safe and classy place for me to unwind after the beach. The one bedroom apartment was more than enough space, the bathroom/shower was nice and loved that all the doors could lock, even the ones inside. Made me feel extra safe since I traveled solo. The apartments are very quiet and only a 5 minute drive to Mead's Bay (amazing beach) and the Viceroy Hotel.
My wife and I recently visited Anguilla for a quick and decided to check out Carl's apartments. We had reasonably high expectations based on the pictures, and were happy to find things were exactly as advertised.
The space was comfortable and clean. My wife really liked the 'modern' feel of the apartment. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a huge plus. The internet was solid, the tests I ran showed 7mb down and 1mb up. We rented a car directly from Carl, it was clean and ran perfectly. The elevator is a really nice touch.
I would stay with Carl again in a heartbeat. He's genuinely kind, generous, and always interested in making sure you're having a great stay.
This really is a home away from home ... the place is fully air conditioned .. everything works .. it is modern and spacious. Anguilla is a small island so you are never far from anything but renting a car from the owner of the property made things simple.
I first visited Anguilla in 2013 for business. I was set up to stay at the West End Bay Apartments by the group that brought me out to Anguilla. Long story short this has been the only place that I choose to stay at when I visit. I have been back to Anguilla every year since and Carl Irish always makes sure that I am set up perfectly for my vacation. All it takes is 1 simple email to him and I am booked. He clearly takes pride in his properties as they are always clean and comfortable. Him and his partner Melita are always there to greet me with a smile upon my visit and for these reasons and many more I feel like family when I am there. If you are looking for comfort, value and a great location for a great price, West End Bay Apartments is the place for you. In this one place you will get your own full size kitchen, and as an added bonus a washer and dryer, they even provide you with beach towels and chairs. The bathrooms are modern and very spacious and each bedroom is equipped with ceiling fans and air conditioning. Simply put it has everything that you need and is only minutes away from the grocery store, restaurants and beaches. No wonder why W.E.B.A has become my home away from home.
West End Bay Holiday Apartments have been my home away from home whenever I travel to Anguilla. Upon arrival I am often greeted by the owner, Carl, and walk into a clean, fresh smelling apartment with beautiful island flowers. The apartment is located on the west end of the island in a quiet area. It is conveniently situated less than 2 min drive from the beach. I've had the pleasure of staying in a one and two bedroom apartment and they both are well furnished with all the needs of home. Most important for me if there is free wi-fi. If I had one suggestion, it would be to have paper towels and kleenex tissues available. Perhaps that is just a woman thing. Overall, I am always pleased with my stay and will return again and again.
We spent nine wonderful days at West End Bay Holiday Apartments and loved it! This was our second trip to Anguilla and we were so happy to find this self catering apartment on this trip. It was clean, had all of the things one could ask for in a self catering apartment including washer and dryer, outdoor footwash, free calls to the US, beach chairs/umbrella and cooler, as well as dishwasher. Regular service from Melita helps maintain the wonderful status of the apartment. Melitta and Carl were helpful when we had small issues or questions. Carl, the owner, was regularly available and very welcoming but not at all intrusive. We were quite happy with the location as we were able to visit new smaller beaches like West end Bay and sherricks, as well as other favorite Island beaches that were nearby including Rendezvous, Cove, Barnes, Meads, and Maundays. All in all we can't wait to get back to Anguilla and to stay there again. Would unequivocally recommend to anyone interested in clean, reasonably priced, and convenient self catering on Anguilla.
Our family had four apartments here and all we can say is that they were AMAZING! Everything you need to be comfortable was in the apartments. Carl went above and beyond to make sure we were all happy. We travel all over the world and Carl was by far the most helpful person we have ever worked with.
We went to Anguilla for a Destination Wedding and had never been there before. We could have just stayed at a hotel but we wanted a kitchen so we could cook and save money. We knew nothing of the island but our friend who was getting married said she had seen the West End Bay Apartments from the road and they looked beautiful. I emailed Carl and he got right back to me. He told me all about the property and location and he gave us a fantastic deal for the week. When we got to Anguilla after a long day of travelling, we could not have been happier. He was available to help with anything we needed, from meeting us at the dock to helping with any and all questions we had. He was quite simply amazing and the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment we got was SO gorgeous! It had a full kitchen, two full baths, A/C, a beautiful deck with a view of the ocean and the most gorgeous breeze you can imagine. The mattresses were like sleeping on a cloud, an amazing night's sleep. Carl lent us chairs, a cooler and umbrella for our stay that week so we didn't have to buy them. He was available to answer any questions or help us with anything we might have needed. We cannot wait to go back to Anguilla and we will never stay any place else. Carl's place is beautiful, affordable and absolutely a home away from home. I just can't say enough great things about Carl and his place.
It was a wonderful holiday in a dream location with beautiful beaches very quiet and safe where I met people always available and special. The apartments of the West End Bay Holiday Apartments are very beautiful modern and recently built. Very clean and with all the amenities you can imagine from the dryer in the laundry room in a large refrigerator, television by satellite to the excellent free WIFI. From all utesili kitchen to a large bedroom with a large and comfortable bed. All it governed daily by a special person always present and available to assist you (Ms Malita). Ideal for those seeking tranquility, cleanliness and ... caribbean !!! The owner (Mr. Carl) is a very special person always present and available to help you feel almost like home! it's really hard not to become friends ...
Place to recommend to families, couples and even singles If you look for tranquility and excellent relationship between quality and price considering that you are in a beautiful place like Anguilla.
Our stay was amazing. Carl, the owner, and his family, made us feel welcomed, inviting us Into their home and making my husband's birthday memorable. The condo was clean and comfortable, with a great location. Can't wait to return next year!
Carl, his family, and staff were very friendly and accommodating to my long term stay! I was in Anguilla for 7 weeks alone on business and the West End Bay Apartments were the perfect location for my home away from home. The apartment had everything I needed - wifi, laundry room, and event all the necessities for the beach (towels, chair, umbrella, coolers, snorkel gear, etc.) It was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable, but most importantly it was safe and I felt like I was 'at home'. I was sad to leave, but I cannot wait to return and have another stay at West End Bay Apartments - everything was perfect! I will definitely tell friends & family!
You can not go wrong staying here. Modern, clean and beautiful apartments. Great staff and awesome location. The price is the best on the island for the value received. A little hint is that they have very high end towels, the same as Viceroy and Zemi and they don't know the difference, so when we walked by they just grabbed our towels and made up loungers for us ;) We paid cash for drinks and food and all was good!
This is long overdue. My husband and I stayed at Carl's place last February and loved every minute. This was our 5 time vacationing in Anguilla and we feel very at home on the island. The apartment is large, modern and clean. Carl has everything you would need for the perfect vac…
We stayed at West End apartment while attending a wedding in Anguilla and were very happy and excited about the country and place! Everything was convenient at West End! Car rental, beaches, restaurant etc. Carl was our life saver. We had a chartered transport to our destinati…
We are back on Anguilla this year and staying at this marvelous, perfectly located and comfortable apartment-hotel (full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, etc.). We have a large and breezy two-bedroom with great views of the salt pond and the ocean (on the other side). The apartment comes …
My wife, my 4 years old son and a friend of ours had an amazing stay at Carl's West End Bay Apartment!!! Carl's apartment is definitely the perfect place to enjoy Anguilla. It has all the comfort you can think of when you're on vacation on a Caribbean island: Large rooms, King si…
I had the pleasure of staying in a one bedroom apartment for the month of august, 2016. It was much more than i had expected; high end furnishings, modern appliances, wonderful linens in both bedroom and bathroom, included the use of a cooler for the beach, beach chairs, umbrell…
My husband and I just returned from our first stay at West End Bay Apartments. We really enjoyed staying in the spacious one bedroom apartment. The apartment is fully equipped and comfortable. Carl lives on the premises and is so helpful and friendly. We enjoyed using the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler that were available for us to use. My husband and I have visited Anguilla many times. We will definitely return to stay at West End Bay Apartments when we return to Anguilla!
My wife and I stayed at the West End Bay Apartments and have only praise to offer for the apartments and for the owner Carl. The apartment was nicely appointed, very spacious and comfortable with air-conditioning in both the bedroom and the living room/kitchen. The units also come with a washer/dryer and a dishwasher. Carl was a pleasure to deal with from my first email to the final day of our stay. Not only did Carl arrange for our rental car but he also picked us up at the airport! And the rates are some of the best on Anguilla for all that’s provided. The West End Bay Apartments are not on a beach but they’re very close to Shoal Bay West and ideally located for exploring all the West End beaches and restaurants.
Wonderful, clean, spacious holiday rental at an incredible price on Anguilla. We were a family of four and this was a fantastic spot to enjoy all the West End beaches and restaurants. The apartment was spotless with plenty of amenities, plus a washer and dryer that was so helpful. They had snorkels and chairs and umbrella for folks to enjoy the beaches. Carl and Melita were wonderful hosts. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Room was awesome, and Carl was hospitable and helpful from the moment we arrived. The place is a little isolated so I would definitely suggest renting a car (which you can very easily do with Carl's help as they rent them right from their parking lot). The bed was very comfortable, spacious closet with a safe for valuables and iron and ironing board, beautiful bathroom facing the sunset, washer/dryer, new kitchen with everything you'd need, and a nice deck out front. Shoal Bay West is only a 5 minute walk and is a stunning beach with very few people. The grocery store Best Buy is about a 10 minute drive and has EVERYTHING and accepts USD. Right near Best Buy are many nice restaurants (Ocean Echo, Straw Hat, Blanchard's, Bamboo Beer Box, etc). In the end, I really enjoyed the somewhat remote location of West End Bay and was so thankful to get a car (very affordably!) so we could drive around and explore the island. Wouldn't change anything about our stay - except maybe make it longer
We had an amazing stay at West End Bay Apartments! The apartment was large, clean, well appointed. Carl was a gracious host and we enjoyed our many chats with him when we were going and coming. The wifi and AC were reliable and the breeze on the patio was cool and relaxing. We cooked breakfast almost every day and the cookware was in great condition. We also used the washer and dryer a few times. The apartment provided beach towels, chairs and a cooler which we used. The location was quiet and we walked the roads daily for exercise. Two weeks weren't long enough and we look forward to staying here again!
We are back in Anguilla and staying with Carl again at this lovely and comfortable spot on the island. I am looking out the window at sparkling water, bright sun and bird life on the pond. We have so far enjoyed Mead's Bay, Shoal Bay West and Rendezvous Beach and are off to Shoal Bay East today. Mead's and Shoal Bay East have great food and drink open.
West End Bay weathered Irma in tact and we are so thrilled to be back here. Looks like there are some vacancies - check out this comfy and spacious place. American Airlines, Delta and other airlines are now flying into St. Maarten and the charter boats are running to Anguilla.
Host was extremely helpful and gracious. Loved having washer/dryer in apartment. I found the bar stools at he counter extremely uncomfortable as there was no place to put your feet and sitting on them was awkward. Not on the beach, but close to many of them.
We stayed in a two bedroom. Each bedroom had its own private bath. Share the kitchen dining and bedroom. Full kitchen and washer dryer. Good views of the ocean. We stayed on the St Maartin side. The owner and host couldn’t have been nicer. He ask rents cars at his facility or will drop one at the ferry for your use. Highly recommend.
This was our third visit to West End Bay Apartments. Once again, Carl and his team made this a perfect getaway. everyone at West En is charming and offers warm and friendly hospitality. The apartments are spacious with beautiful views of St. Martin in the distance. Carl attends to every detail and request. He connected us with boat tour that all agree was one of the best days ever. The kitchen is well-equipped; we very much enjoy the option of cooking some nights, having dinner on the terrace with the warm Caribbean breeze. West End Bay is the ideal option for enjoying the idyllic beauty of Anguilla's beaches at an affordable price. Each time we leave, we are already talking about and planning our next stay at West End Bay. In short its an awesome place to stay and highly recommended.
Love this man. We are a company that does a lot of work in the islands. We love dealing with Carl for various reasons. He is a gentle soul that responds to our needs perfectly. No matter how late we call he finds a way to accommodate our crew. And they are alsways happy with the accommodations including transport —car rental.
