NEW Villa Rental: Kandara Villa

Brand NEW to Anguilla’s rental market is the chic and modern, Kandara Villa.

Kandara Villa is one of Anguilla’s most unique villas, based on location alone. This villa is perched on Anguilla’s far west end, atop dramatic sea cliff.

It is an impressive and private setting. Here, craggy cliff face gives way to turquoise seas that sparkle in a million shades of blue. Kandara not only gazes out to this view, it has direct access to a most special sandy cove.

Here, you are just a few hundred yards south of The Arch, a 1 minute drive to Shoal Bay West and a 3 minute drive to Meads Bay. The setting blends the best of both worlds: supreme seclusion and access to Anguilla’s favorite “big” beaches.

Kandara takes full advantage of its stunning location.

Inside, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, large dining area, modern living area with flatscreen TV and six plush master suites lay out over the villa’s 8,000 square feet.

Everywhere you look, your gaze is met with 360° infinite blue views…

Plush and modern bedroom suites each feature flatscreen TV, safe, walk-in closet and a private ensuite. The master suite’s shower even opens to the sky via a skylight. A most inspired touch.

Each suite also has a balcony or terrace, and the villa’s entire third floor is a roof top terrace. An unbeatable location for star gazing, watching fireworks (on New Year’s Eve!) or simply marveling at Anguilla Blue.

Outdoor living is large at Kandara, too. The villa’s oversized terrace drops off to an infinity edge pool.

Expansive, the space features an outdoor dining area and lounging pavilion, outdoor shower and pool bathroom, large grassy lawn and a perch at the cliff’s edge…

With its far western location, it is a top spot for sunsets (and sunset weddings)!

At 8,000 square feet, fully outfitted with luxurious touches and with a one of a kind and exclusive location, Kandara is a top choice for events and families and friends traveling together.

Eats & Beach at CuisinArt and The Reef

Whether at Breezes...

With a glass of rosé overlooking Merrywing Bay...

Or under a CuisinArt cabana on the beach at Rendezvous Bay...

The dining experiences at CuisinArt's two properties consistently blow us away!

A few of our new favorite dishes at CuisinArt's Mosaic Restaurant?

The Cobb Salad, with smoked chicken breast, blue cheese, avocado, quail egg, and artful croutons...

It pairs oh-so perfectly with an oak wood-fired oven pizza. The Caprino is by far a favorite, with baby spinach, creamy goat cheese, mozzarella and a dusting of pine nuts!

Or perhaps the crunchy panko breaded asparagus with truffled cauliflower cheese gratin would be more to your liking?

And I would be remiss to not mention the most impressive seafood platter in Anguilla, CuisinArt's Seafood Platter For Two! With rock lobster, oysters, shrimp, crab claws, langoustine and a variety of tangy dips and sauces, at CuisinArt we fully subscribe to the SEEFood Diet ;-) :-)

After lunch? There's only one place to be... with a rum punch by the Caribbean Sea!

The NEW Blowing Point Terminal

Anguilla's Blowing Point ferry terminal is bigger, brighter and better than ever!

Completely overhauled, the Blowing Point ferry terminal is now set at the top of the Blowing Point road (above where the previous parking/drop off area was).

The best news? The ferry terminal now accepts Mastercard and Visa debit or credit cards for departure tax!

Cool Pool With A View

The south coast of Anguilla dazzles the eye! Every ripple of the Caribbean Sea glistens a different hue of blue, meeting the dramatic mountains of St. Martin just in the distance.

A favorite way to enjoy these awe-inspiring views? From Champagne Shores: The Villa's cool pool...

At 19'x22', complete with a children's pool and jacuzzi, Champagne Shores' expansive outdoor living area takes your breath away.

Inside, the villa impresses all over again with a clean, modern design infused with tropical warmth.

Earlier this month, we stepped inside this high-value property to show you around LIVE.

Tasty Dinners at Tasty's Restaurant

When it comes to dining in Anguilla, Chef Dale's restaurant, Tasty's is an institution.

Born and raised in Anguilla, Chef Dale's elegant Caribbean menu is one of Anguilla's very best. It comes as no surprise, too, that his natural skills were sharpened by the Master French Chefs Michel and Jo Rostang!

Some of our all time favorite Chef Dale dishes?

Pillowy conch fritters with extra-large chunks of conch...

Chef's famous seafood salad, with sizable pieces of crayfish, shrimp and snapper...

And a seafood pasta we first fell in love with way back in 2002. Laced with shrimps, crayfish and snapper, and served in an herb cream sauce, our love for Chef's pasta holds true today!

A Note From Tender Loving Care Home For The Elderly

Tender Loving Care Home For The Elderly is a senior citizen care home with 12 resident patients and some daytime patients, set just off the road leading to Da'Vida. After Irma, the facility was substantially damaged - to the point that the building was not habitable and the patients had to be moved.

Nurse Brenda Hodge (the owner) moved the patients to her parents' home as a temporary measure. The patients are still there over a year later, with limited living quarters and only 1 bathroom.

Sunset Homes and its generous corporate partners and other individuals and companies continue to invest in a major rehaul and renovation process. The progress on the project is heartwarming and we are nearing completion. Help us complete our home by coming on board to contribute to lighting, windows, doors, poured concrete, bathroom fixtures, ceiling fans, kitchen appliances and labour.

If you are able to help Tender Loving Care, please click here.

Donations can be made via the link above or via phone or in person. All donations made will be put towards accounts for Tender Loving Care - Nurse Brenda would then be able to purchase building supplies to complete the rebuild.

That is all for this month!
