“Good Value - Beautiful Water Front Location”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Since Kristen 1206 was our neighbor during our stay, I should probably get my review done timely too... Great location. Can't stress how nice it was to have a one minute walk down the stairs to an awesome beach. Chairs, umbrellas, towels all there for your use. The pool however, was not heated...and a bit too chilly for me. I found the ocean much more attractive (and more fun!) so spent hours in there each day. Had some rain but overall the weather was pretty warm and sunny. The ocean was also warm and comfortable for swimming. We did have some waves most days (some may find that rough) but I found them a lot of fun...except for the occasional wipe out...which happened to a few of us unexpecting folks that had our backs to the waves.

We were in the two bedroom unit that was attached to Kristen's studio. Very spacious, had 2 1/2 baths, and amazing views. The unit was in good shape though I agree that the outside of the buildings could use a bit of maintenance. The A/C worked well (one unit got repaired during our stay). The kitchen had basic needs addressed (no dishwasher) and we did cook in some meals and prepared lunches to take to the beach (found a styrofoam cooler under the sink). Liked having a washer and dryer in the unit. Good restaurants within walking distance. Tried Blanchard's Beach Shack, Ocean Aire, and Straw Hat. Even toured the Viceroy nearby...but not my cup of tea. Too much pomp and circumstance for me...I just came here to just relax by the beach. The staff at Turtle's Nest was wonderful. Felt like we made some good friends here during our stay. Everyone was really nice and always willing to address any request.

This is not a posh condo experience. It is more like an apartment lifestyle. If you want someone to wait on you hand and foot...head to Viceroy. If you want to relax and be more independent, this is the place for you. I found it to suit our needs perfectly. There is a vacant lot next door...I pray it never gets developed...because right now the location is great and almost appears to be a private beach (if you look in the direction away from Frangipani). Only suggestions for improvement would be to have more substantial front doors and locks (I know it isn't really an issue...just would make me feel better) and have in room safes for passports and stuff. Oh and the hot water heaters could be a little bigger...hot showers did need to be spaced out.

We did rent a car (Andy's Car Rental) and visited two beaches, but really only used it to go grocery shopping (Best Buy) or drive to restaurants at night (Flavours, Veya, and E's Kitchen). Rendevous Bay and Shoal Bay East were really beautiful to see and walk along. I have to say that night driving was not my favorite thing. Really stressed about not hitting stray dogs and cats at night (or the local who was walking along the edge of the road). You really had to be careful.

Took GB Express both ways for a shuttle from St Maarten...really nice service...but good gosh...we had rough seas both ways. I really didn't enjoy that part...reaffirmed my faith in God (smile) since I prayed the whole way on the return trip. Makes me think I will look into Anguilla Air or just suck it up and take that larger ferry next time.

So a big thank you to the Turtle's Nest staff for making our stay a pleasant experience.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

If you want to stay ON one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and have a great view, all for a decent price, look no further. The location of Turtle's Nest, right in the center of Meads Bay cannot be beat. You can walk to many fabulous restaurants and a beach bar/shack. The resort has one pool per building and daily maid service. They also have nice beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. You can even get drinks/lunch served to your chair from the restaurant next door. TN has no restaurant on site but with so many close by, it isn't an issue.

Rooms themselves are very large and well equipped. Each unit is owned separately so furnishings are different in each. We stayed in a studio, which was very roomy, and we toured a 2 bedroom which was huge. All rooms have a patio or balcony and all have ocean views.

Only negatives were that:

1) the hot water heaters (at least in the studio) are tiny. Holds only enough hot water for one short shower.

2) The exterior of the buildings, especially Phase 1, are in need of some cosmetic upkeep. Nothing major but it is noticeable.

I hesitate to even review Turtle's Nest in fear that more people will go. We stayed for 10 days after being completely amazed walking into our room (4AE) for the first time at sunset. What an amazing room. You walk around the corner to the most beautiful view ever. At first when we booked I was a little apprehensive about not having a roof on our balcony. I thought, what do we do if it rains? I was so thankful we had sun on our balcony the entire afternoon. And in the rain? We were able to sit right in the living room area with the doors opened up. This one bedroom was roomy, private and kept very clean our entire stay.

We loved the turtles and always stopped by to say hello. We also really appreciated the staff at Turtle's Nest. Always very friendly and helpful and ready to do whatever needed to be done to make their guests stay even better. Scooby even got us some coconuts to drink (which we love).

We rented a car for 3 of our 10 days and we were glad we did. We had one full day of rain and were able to just jump in the car and explore rather than feeling like we lost a day. In addition, each beach seems so different in Anguilla so exploring them is a must. Don't forget to take the trip out to Sandy Island, it's and experience you won't forget and one that Betania at the front desk was happy to help us book.

Turtles Nest is about a 3 minute walk to a large grocery store where you can get everything you need. Just be aware, they push back on taking your credit card when they can. I assume there is a fee to them if the transaction is under a certain dollar amount so they try to avoid it in those situations. If that's the case, I would rather they put a limit on using your credit card rather than say it's down when it's not. But really easy access and safe walking from Turtle's Nest.

Meads Bay was rough while we were there. Almost too rough to go in some days but still very beautiful. And there are lots of dining options nearby. We chose Blanchard's Beach Shack almost everyday for lunch and then had a light dinner in. Also, Straw Hat Restaurant will deliver food or drink to you on the beach from their location just one resort away. Nothing better than having a bucket of beer on Meads. Bay without having to move a muscle.

The worst thing about the room we had at the Turtle's Nest was that our room was on the 4th floor. It's a bit of a climb once you've clicked into vacation mode but just take your time (what are you rushing for anyway) and when you get to that view....it will all be worth it.

Oh I forgot to mention, we took Anguilla Air Service 8 minute flight to Anguilla from St. Martin which worked out well. There was a taxi waiting at the airport to take us to our resort and he even stopped at the Best Buy Supermarket for us on the way to the resort. When we left Anguilla, we took the ferry back to. Marigot in St. Martin. Both ended up being good simple modes of transportation. Going by plane there was a small layover at SXM and by ferry it was a bit of a rough ride that day but a pretty smooth process. I think it comes down to budget and personal preference.

We loved every minute of our stay (4 nights) at the nest! Super clean rooms, friendly staff, great value, and, oh yeah, directly on Meads Bay! Of all of the beaches in all of Anguilla, Meads has got to be among the top three (Maundays and Shoal East being the others). Compared to other rentals/condos, this place was among the most affordable and the best value. Super fast WIFI and a washing machine in the unit was a real treat too. Oh yeah, the real turtles in the courtyard were very cute. While there is no restaurant on site, there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance (and by way of the beach), including Blanchard's and Straw Hat. Overall, highly recommend the nest!

We stayed at Turtle's Nest the week of Carnival and could not have asked for finer accommodations. We were placed in a three bedroom, three and a half bath unit on the fourth floor of Phase 2 . The unit was extremely comfortable and very spacious. Having a/c in the entire unit was wonderful for this time of year. Bedding and linens were very inviting and the unit was extremely clean. Water pressure in the shower was very strong. Washer and dryer came in handy since we were on island for two weeks.Beach towels are provided down by the pool as well as beach chairs and umbrellas . Betania and Jackie in the office offered top notch service with reservations for restaurants and Fun Time shuttle to SXM airport.We looked at the studio units as well as the one bedrooms and they were all lovely. Highly recommend Turtle's Nest. We had a great stay and will return to this property on our next visit.
