Affordable apartments right across the street from Sandy Ground Beach, Sea View is a high-value accommodations option. Set in the village of Sandy Ground, surrounded by tasty restaurants, the location is convenient (although can be noisy on a Thursday night when the bars are hopping). Offered at a very low price, if you're traveling on a budget, Sea View is well worth considering.
Sea View is termed an Anguilla hotel but it possesses the charm of a Bed & Breakfast and the accommodations of an apartment... an apartment nestled in between a salt pond, excellent for bird-watching, and the turquoise sea across the street.
If you are hoping to travel to Anguilla on a tighter budget, Sea View is likely to suit your needs, especially if you want easy access to the beach.

Likewise, if you are looking to do an extended stay of a couple of weeks or more, this is a place that you can expand in to and call "home" for a bit without an enormous financial expenditure, comparatively.
Beauty at Sea View
As a single traveler myself, I appreciate the one bedroom opportunity at Sea View.
Each unit has its respective bedroom(s), bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, living space with sofas, chairs, and a television.
Additional amenities are air-conditioning in the bedrooms and wireless internet.
Upon touring the two bedroom and one bedroom units, I was immediately impressed with how clean everything was.
Sometimes accommodations with a kitchen don't feel quite as pristine as one might like, but Sea View conquers that feeling.
I should note that I surprised Shermah (the owner) at Sea View with my visit, so it's not as if they operated in an out of the ordinary fashion for my tour.

This family-run hotel was built in 1985 and continues to be updated.
Sea View consists of two buildings. One building houses a two bedroom unit and a one bedroom unit. The second building houses a two bedroom unit.
They are all on the ground floor amidst beautiful landscaping, potted plants and framed by colorful bougainvillea.
Each has a front porch and a private back porch.

Sea View is located in Sandy Ground, a very central and historic spot on the island of Anguilla.
It's also in a great location in Sandy Ground...

Sammy's BBQ Bar on the beach has a very lovely Sunday afternoon/evening live band set-up. Sammy puts tiki torches out in the sand adding to the fun and laid back spot to take in the sunset.
Earlier in the day on Sundays, Johnno's offers live jazz-style music.
If this sounds convenient, it is! If this sounds loud, keep in mind that The Pumphouse's latest and busiest night tends to only be one night a week - on Thursday.
Sea View is open year round. The month of December tends to book way in advance, as do many of the Anguilla hotels.
This hotel really has a loyal group of repeat and first-time guests. Click here for a Sea View review written by a new guest who fell in love with the charming property.
