“Chinaberry is a Charming and Peaceful Place to Unwind”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in Chinaberry, the one bedroom cottage portion of the Bayberry-Chinaberry property, which can be rented as a whole or as individual units. Bayberry and Chinaberry have separate driveways and entrances, and are divided by a large 'common space' courtyard. There were guests in Bayberry while we were in Chinaberry, but we never saw or heard them so each building is nicely private if rented individually.
Cul de Sac, where Bayberry-Chinaberry is located, is a very peaceful area of mostly very nice older villas surrounded by dense vegetation - its "in the bush" as the locals say. Chinaberry has a comfortable deck with a sweeping view of breathtaking Rendezvous Bay - a fantastic place to relax with a morning coffee; or a glass of wine as the sunset unfolds directly in front of you!
Chinaberry was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and the private outdoor bathroom/shower was a delight. We had an issue with getting an internet connection (network name and password were not provided anywhere), but once that got worked out the connection was relatively fast and reliable. Air conditioning is available, but we had no need to use it during our stay as the breeze was sufficient to just leave the cottage open (note: screens do offer protection from insects, and there was also a mosquito net for the bed - which we didn't need to use - but it is definitely a good idea to treat with repellant when you are in the outdoor spaces, particularly in the morning and around dusk). Also, a tip, keep the door to the outdoor bathroom closed to prevent mosquitos from entering the bedroom area.
Although it has a lovely view of the water, Chinaberry is not on the beach. There is a small beach a short walk away, and that beach is on Rendezvous Bay, but it is not "the" large and popular Rendezvous Bay Beach. It is possible to walk to "the" Rendezvous Bay Beach - we did, but not without climbing over some rocks and getting our feet in the water.
The Chinaberry rental rate is reasonable and a good value on an island where lodging tends to be overpriced. Gayle, the owner, and Lyn, the property manager, were both very accommodating and a delight to deal with. We will certainly return!

“What more would one want?”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just returned from two wonderful weeks at Chinaberry! While not on the beach (one does need a car, the view from the deck over Rendezvous Bay is truly fabulous, particularly at cocktail time! A comfortable bedsit complete with a king size bed, adequate kitchen, great outdoor spaces providing a variety of exposures and an enormous bathroom complete with a palm tree in the shower, there is little more that one could need. While not to be confused with the ultra-expensive villas and resorts on the island, Chinaberry provides tranquility,comfort, hospitality and great service.

“Exquisitely elegant villa in the Caribbean”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed 2 days in Chinaberry and 8 days in Bayberry.
The atmosphere of these 2 villas and the exquisite taste with which they are furnished are unique. They are very clean, functional, private and warm. The house keeping is simply perfect.
There is a lovely terrace whith a great sea view where to enjoy breakfast and dinner.
The outside patio and entrance are beautifully illuminated.
You would never leave these beautiful villas.

This is my 3rd stay and Bayberry and once again it has been just wonderful. The house is so comfortable and relaxing,beautifully decorated and perfectly kept. Gayle has put attention in every detail and Lyn, who takes care of the property keeps things perfect and is just plain nice to be around:). Beaches (Rendezvous Bay and are in easy striking distance by foot or by car if you want to stay close to home. There are beach chairs and plush towels at the ready. The kitchen is well appointed and it is so lovely to eat outside on the porch for those evenings you want to eat in.

I have only stayed in the 'smaller' bedroom and I never feel like I got short-changed. If you were here with 2 couples both would be very comfortable and happy with their accommodations. The master bedroom has a lovely tub and the other has a spacious shower.

We are huge fans of Anguilla and this is a great choice if you want a private villa that feels like home. I hope to take some good photos to post - as I think the ones up so far don't do it full justice.

We spent a wonderful time in Anguilla, the island is amazing and the sea is the best we have never seen. We had a beautiful holidays and it was excatly what we were looking for: quite place, wonderful sea and beaches, comfortable accomodation, good food. The Bayberry villa is awesome! It is comfortable, perfeclty cleanded and the view from the balcony is spectacular! Everything was perfect and we felt as if we were at home. Although there was another couple in Chinaberry, we have never met or heard them. We found the villa perfectly cleaned and tied up every day, Lynn has done his job in a great way! We would like to come back but next time we'll stay longer!!!! Thank you Gayle for your support and kindness!

“Tranquil”
Reviewed 19 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

we stayed in Bayberry and loved it. Lyn the housekeeper was very well informed and great. The frogs singing at night (apperently an invasive species brought to Anguilla during a development project) is a bit loud at night, but are fine if you are used to crickets. to give you an idea of how much we liked it one morning a large excavator mounted jackhammer started pounding away right next door (and went on from 7AM to 3 PM for a couple of days) and yet we liked the place so much and were there during the day so infrequently that we extended our stay. I say this only becuase clearly this was a unique situation that cannot be controlled by the owners of Bayberry and will not likely be present during any other person's stay and yet we felt so comfortable at Bayberry that it was a small inconvenience. the kitchen was outfitted better than our kitchen at home and we love to cook. loved having a short walk to a small beach adjacent ot Rendevous Bay and its location in quite Cul-de Sac made us feel like we were returning to our own secret hidaway at the end of the day.
