Body & Soul Beach and Fitness Club on Sandy Ground is known for its massages and personal training. You can take classes with the owner, Susi, at her location on Sandy Ground, and you can hire her for your private villa or in-room in your hotel.
This review is about Body & Soul Beach and Fitness Club's one bedroom apartment rental on the beach.
Where to start!? From pre-booking questions to booking, Susi was super efficient with fast replies. I asked for help with car rental, and she helped. I booked with Highway Car Rental, and my soft top jeep was waiting for me at Susi's when we arrived! The paperwork got done the next day, but we could go driving right away! How cool is that?
The rental was spacious and clean, with wi-fi and a/c in the bedroom (queen-size bed). The apartment is complete with a living room and kitchenette, perfect for cooking and eating-in. With a bunkbed and fold out couch, this apartment can easily sleep a family of four.
The outside porch was large. We ate there and sipped on drinks at night, watching the sun go down.
Sandy Ground is a peculiar beach. We could watch freighters come and unload, load and leave within a day, yachts anchor in the safe harbor, and kids sailing, yet I don't think I saw more than 3 people on the beach at one time, so it felt very private in a strange way.
Johnno's restaurant is steps away on the beach. They serve fabulous fresh grilled fish.
The Pumphouse is across the street. My fav there was the gorgonzola salad with fresh tuna and the strawberry/banana daiquiri. Yummmmmmm!
Driving on the left takes a few days to get used to, but luckily the locals seem used to that. Bring insect repellant, as Anguilla is not exempt from mosquitoes.
All in all, from the rental itself to the location, I cannot recommend Susi's place more!
Nori's Reply: Thank you for your review, Hanna. Sandy Ground is one of Anguilla's best beaches, and certainly one of my favorites. You described it "to a T!"
Body & Soul Beach and Fitness Club's building is so picturesque, right on Sandy Ground's sandy shores.
The rates are extremely reasonable, especially for Anguilla standards. In the high season it is $135/night, $120/night in the low season. There is a two week minimum stay in the high season.
It is one of the best deals to be had if you are traveling on a budget, and especially if you are taking a longer vacation (2 weeks+).
