We stayed at Grand Outlook Castle December 12 - 18, 2017. There really are not words to describe how beautiful it is. The house is gorgeous, and the view is amazing. It is hard to stop looking at it. Pictures do not do it justice. Paul and Elise did a great job getting the house up and running after the Hurricane.
About eight years ago my husband and I looked up at the house from daVita and joked about staying there for my 60th birthday. Paul and Elise helped him pull off the surprise, along with our kids, even with the uncertainty with Irma. Everything was taken care of to make our transition smooth from St. Maartin to the Castle and back to the airport. We were met at the airport and transferred to the Calypso crew for the boat over to Anguilla. Wendell Connors met us at the Blowing Point Ferry Terminal with our rental van and took us to the Castle - we even stopped at a store to get some initial supplies. We were greeted at the Castle by Catherine who gave us a tour and got us settled. Ms. Rolyn and her staff made sure we had everything we needed. I know I missed someone - but thanks to all. We are so glad we did not cancel.
The staff are so nice and made the stay even more special taking care of all the little details.
The island is slowly recovering, and it is amazing to see their resiliency. They are warm, welcoming and genuine.
Some of the beaches still have debris but Shoal Bay East is gorgeous, and Hank's is open and serving with a smile.
At Sandy Ground, a number of restaurants are open. We went to Elvis', Roys, and Johonnos. daVita opened while we were there with full menu and bar selections.
Rendevous bay still has some needed work but Coconuts was open for drinks and getting ready to start food.
It was a great birthday celebration with family in paradise. Again -thanks to all.
We just returned from a two week stay at the Grand Outlook Castle for my wife's 50th Birthday and we absolutely loved the island and the accommodations!!!
Elise & Paul went above and beyond our expectations in getting the GOC ready for us so soon after Irma.
They had a whole house generator installed and must have worked their tails off cleaning up and getting things ready for our arrival.
Obviously there was massive damage on the island from Irma but the people were so friendly and made us feel so welcome it was amazing!
This island is truly something special and we made many new friends, ate incredible food(too much!) and swam and played on the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen, and we have travelled to many many islands!
The GOC is absolutely beautiful and the pool and outside area are perfect for entertaining, we had two couples join us and there is plenty of room for all!
If you are thinking of going to Anguilla they are open for business, groceries, booze, and great restaurants ready to show you a great time, it was a trip of a lifetime and we will definitely return soon!!
This was our second stay in beautiful Anguilla with Paul and his fantastic team. This time we had the pleasure of staying at the G.O.C. and it certainly did not disappoint. From setting up island transfers, boat rentals or recommendations the team left nothing to be desired. Anguilla and the G.O.C. has defiantly become our home away from home and we cannot wait to return next summer
Beautiful well equipped villa ,spacious and had everything you need to have a perfect holiday.we ate in most of the time as the kitchen was excellent and the barbecue area very pleasant to relax in.the staff were most helpful and ensured everything was good.i especially enjoyed the outdoor showers and swimming pool
Beautiful grounds, bedrooms spacious with beautiful balcony views. Kitchen well equipped but too uncomfortable to cook because NO 1ST FLOOR AIR CONDITIONING for living room, dining area and kitchen. Our group of 8 only cooked in one night because it was so unpleasant. There are fans but they didn't cool it off and only increased the noise level. Instead of gathering together in the evening we found everyone going to their separate bedrooms where it was more comfortable. The advertised concierge service was unrealiable. Would not have booked if we knew there was no AC as mentioned above.
Spent a fantastic week here celebrating my husbands 60th, with 3 other couples from Scotland. From the booking, our arrival and stay, everything was well organised and straightforward. The owners sent us an information pack before we arrived, which was very helpful. GOC exceeded our expectations, providing us with spacious, luxurious accommodation, and amazing views over the ocean from the pool deck and infinity pool. The villa was extremely well equipped - all we needed were our clothes. The staff were helpful, and quick to respond to a minor issue we had. Would highly recommend this villa, and would love to be able to stay again.
I would like to share a few words that describe our 2 week vacation in Paradise. Peaceful, beautiful, amazing, blissful, fun, warm, quaint, casual, comfortable, outstanding sunsets, extremely safe and a ton more. This romantic home is very conveniently located at the top of the hill in highest section of Crocus. The Castel is extremely spacious, very nicely decorated, very well appointed, private and quiet. The beaches are never crowded and amazing, the food outstanding and the locals couldn't have been nicer. We cant wait to visit Anguilla island again and share our experience with the rest of our family.
Thank you Paul and Elise for allowing us to share your paradise!
