“Perfect private paradise”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

If you enjoy experiencing an island vacation privately and without the trappings of a resort, this is the place for you! We spent eight nights at the Little Butterfly in January of 2016. Janine's apartment is perfect for a couple or solo traveler. Her husband, Sugar George, is an architect and designed this home as well as many others on the island.

The apartment is attached to their main house, but designed in a way that provides complete privacy with your own remote-controlled gate to the property. The friendly handyman is accessible and addressed any concerns immediately and the housekeeper even did our laundry. Not only is it spacious with an open concept, it is quiet and has everything you could possibly need.

Erlene met us at the airport, and with our rental car waiting for us at the airport, we followed her to the house. She had a take-out dinner waiting for us. Also, there was a fruit bowl on the counter and another one in the fridge, a can of coffee, breakfast items that we had requested plus more, even a bottle of wine! The full kitchen is huge and well-equipped.

There is a sprawling patio with lounge chairs, patio table and chairs, and another area to sit near the entrance to their fitness center. Tennis courts are in front of the patio, if you like to play. There is a distant view of the ocean and St. Martin as the backdrop. Very pretty.

The king-sized bed was very comfortable - I don't think we ever slept so well in our entire lives! The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, a rain shower, and a beautiful vanity with a glass bowl sink.

We highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants the conveniences of home, but also wants the independence of creating your own vacation. We enjoyed the many beaches, the fantastic restaurants, and the cool entertainment that Anguilla offers. The Little Butterfly was the perfect place to call home while exploring this island paradise!

“Centrally located, spacious, secure, modern villa”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We spent 10 days at Little Butterfly and enjoyed our time on Anguilla. This villa was a good choice for us for the following reasons:
* The property is centrally located and it was easy to get to both the eastern and western ends of the island
*The apartment is very roomy with plenty of room to spread out
* The property is secured by a gate and there are dogs on the property making us feel very safe (not that there is any real worry about safety on Anguilla!)
*The villa is private and quiet with a sleek, modern "cool" vibe
*The grounds are well kept
* The bed is comfortable, the bedroom has air conditioning, the linens and towels are plentiful and of nice quality
* Sturdy, comfortable beach chairs were provided as well as a small cooler
*We had a cell phone for making local calls and carrying with us in the car in case of emergency: the internet was reliable and fast enough for our email and texting needs
*Locally made dinner of fish and chicken was provided for our first night due to our late arrival
*Supplies for a hearty breakfast were also supplied in response to their questionnaire
*The staff and the owners, who live upstairs, were thoughtful, courteous and respectful of our privacy
*we were promptly met at the ferry and our orientation was well done
*There were flowers in bowls all over the house which was a lovely touch
*The house was clean and in working order (except a few minor things which have been reported to the owners)

The only "downsides" (and they are minor, for sure) are the fact that you don't have much of a view from anywhere in the house except the front deck over the tennis court (you can see St. Martin in the distance and a little slice of the ocean), the apartment can be a little dark at night, the grounds crew can see into the bedroom so we had the shades pulled most of the time, and the entrance road is rough and eroded. But the size of the property, the reasonable rental rate, and it's central location make it a very nice place to hang your hat while visiting the best island in the Caribbean!

“Wonderful trip, perfect home base”

We traveled to Anguilla for the first time and were very glad we chose to stay at Little Butterfly. The accommodations are great. I was surprised at how large the space is - bigger than it appears in the pictures. Everything worked very well, including the A/C in the bedroom. We were there in off-season (late August/early September), so it was very hot and we appreciated the A/C at night. We kept it off all day while we were out at the beaches, and it cooled off very quickly when we got back in the evening. We used the gym, and it has a high end treadmill and a nice assortment of weights. The ping pong table was fun too.

The housekeeper did our laundry for us a couple of times during the week, which was extremely helpful because we carry on our luggage and pack lightly. The location was great and a short drive to either side of the island. Renting a car is a must to get to all the fun beaches. Since we were there in the off season, we had nearly every beach all to ourselves.

Also, I can't speak highly enough about our host, Janine. She was extremely responsive by email as we planned our trip, and stocked the villa with some food and drinks before we arrived, which was a very nice touch. Also, I forgot my favorite hat in our rush to leave on the last day, and she graciously shipped it to me in the U.S. I would definitely recommend staying at Little Butterfly.

“Home Away From Home !!”

This is the place to stay. Great for couples or traveling solo (as I did). Good location in ( middle of island). less then 15 min. drive from Meads Bay. And 20 min drive to Shoal Bay. You will need a car to get around. You can see the island of St. Martin/St. Maarteen from the kitchen window and outdoor seating area. The Litte Butterfly is very clean and well layed out villa. Very private, but just a short drive to a local market and good restaurants. Villa Assistant Erlene White was very helpful and friendly. She help me with getting settled in, answering questions about the island as well as the best market to get my groceries. "She's GREAT". Premier Taxi & Tour Services & Bicycle Rental did a nice job in helping me getting around. There's a restaurant within a 10 min drive of the villa call "Tasty's". It's that a more. the food is good and not expensive. Smokey's (at the Cove) is another place to eat great for lunch, right on the beach.

My husband and I just got back from 2 weeks at Little Butterfly. Wow! Loved it!!!! The Villa is gorgeous and spacious and luxurious! My husband is a chef and loved the well-stocked expansive kitchen, and we ate most of our meals at home. There's a lot of grocery stores not too far away for your staples, and we loved the fresh fruit and vegetable road-side stands. We got fresh fish from the Fish Depot and live lobster from the pier at Scilly Cay (Island Harbour). Of course you need to have a car to get around and the Villa owners had it waiting for us when we arrived, and a sweet woman who helped orientate us and had take-out dinner there for us as well as a beautiful fruit platter and bottle of wine. The fridge had food in it for our breakfast the first day. We went out every day to a different beach. We really liked 'The Cove' (make sure you eat at Smokey's and there was a live band @ lunch), Rendezvous Bay (check out the Dune Preserve), Mead's Bay (we ate at Blanchard's Beach Hut--really good!), and of course Road Bay (Sandy Ground). We wanted to take the boat out to Sandy Island but the waves were too high both times we went there. But the weather overall was amazing!!! Out of 14 days it only rained twice, and one of the times was at night. It is so hot and dry (between 81-85F) all the time. There's a tennis court at Little Butterfly and we played every morning before it got too hot, and ping pong in the late afternoon (in the gym). What we really liked about Anguilla is how friendly and nice everybody is and also how quiet and laid-back it is. There aren't any high rises and no crowds on any beaches. There are no shopping malls or duty-free shops or strips with jewelry stores. On our last day, after we took the ferry over to Marigot, St. Martin, we took a taxi to Phillipsburg, Sint Maarten and yikes! Culture shock! There were 5 cruise ships in that day and wall-to-wall people on every street, in every shop and umbrellas 3-deep with tons of people in the water and on the beach. That's not what we like and it made us really appreciate how wonderful and truly relaxing our stay was in Anguilla and at Little Butterfly.
