Probably the thing we loved most about Fletch’s Cove was the ease at which we could let morning pass to afternoon and afternoon to evening on the patio. We have been to Anguilla several times (we married here in 2006!) so we have seen all of the beaches numerous times, snorkeled Prickley Pear and others, and explored every sunset bar and restaurant. What we really needed this vacation, and what Fletch’s Cove so expertly provided, was total relaxation. We read, swam in the ocean and the pool, and sunbathed, cooked dinner a couple of nights, and got our social fixes at Veya, Koal Keel, Straw Hat and a wonderful spa visit at Malliouhanna. Many, many thanks to you for sharing your home with us. We certainly plan to return.
Patrick and Emily (New York, NY)
What a fantastic vacation this has been! The island is beautiful, filled with friendly people and lots of charm. After driving all over the island Doug and I concluded that Fletch’s Cove captures the best of Anguilla. The house is stunning, the views mind blowing and the amenities heavenly. Thank you both for everything.
Jenny and Doug (Mass)
Words cannot express how much we appreciate you sharing your beautiful home. We definitely made the right choice to stay here for our honeymoon. We had an incredible & truly unforgettable experience. We are just a middle-class couple just starting out, so this was quite the splurge for us. It was WORTH every penny!!! Your home is gorgeous with the best view on the island. Plus everything is so user-friendly. You guys haven’t left anything out. The people are so friendly. Needless-to-say we will definitely be back. Anguilla is extremely relaxing, romantic, peaceful, private… I could go on and on…Truly breath-taking!! Plus, your home is so amazing and we hate to leave. Cecile took care of us, and Catherine was extremely helpful. Everything was truly beyond any expectations we ever had. We cannot thank you enough and cannot think of a better way to start our life together.
Tina and Paul (New Orleans, LA)
I think this is our 7th stay at Fletch’s Cove! That says it all- perfection found! We thank you and your staff Catherine, Cecile for a most wonderful home here in Anguilla. This year our favorite tips:
Luna Rosa- beautiful view, most delicious food, great service!
Fresh Fish – see Eric at Fisheries – we get beautiful red snapper to grill here.
Shoal Bay (east) – continues to be our favorite spot – take the beach chairs and spend a day(s) there – so lovely!
Art Café – Island Harbour – good cappuccino and art.
Kate and Jim (Boulder, CO)
We have been extremely fortunate to have had so many travel opportunities to other island. So far- this has clearly become our favorite. Catherine, fabulous – kind and so helpful – and Cecile – truly did spoil us! We were here off season, but still had great food – even though some places were closed. Luna Rosa, Oliver’s, Picante’s, Smokey’s and Straw Hat were all good! Great snorkeling right out in front of the Villa. We are still trying to find something we may have needed in the house – but have yet done that. Carol & John you have thought of everything!!! We can’t wait to come back to enjoy Fletch’s Cove once again. A beautiful villa – relaxing – feeling like home!
Anne and Mark (Mendon, MA)
Today is the last day of our honeymoon and I must say that it was perfect! This villa is absolutely amazing and the pictures online do it no justice. We were here during off-season and I would have it no other way. I highly recommend Rendezvous Bay for an amazing Beach with much privacy (and the obvious Shoal Bay East). Smokey’s is perfect on Saturday afternoons, Veya’s is an excellent restaurant (shrimp cigars for appetizer) and Una Amore is great for a quick cheap pizza. Catherine & Cecile were so accommodating and Mimi at Elvis’ Beach Bar is the best bartender on the island. We love Anguilla so much and will definitely be back in the future. Could not have asked for a more relaxing honeymoon.
Andrea and Anthony ( Charlotte, NC)
Dear Carol and John…
We are so glad that we decided to stay at Fletch's Cove for our honeymoon! Nothing surpassed our ocean views waking up every morning. We loved it! The beaches were amazing and we loved coming back to Fletch's Cove every evening. Thank you for having such a wonderful "home away from home"! Words cannot express how terrific Catherine is. She was such a help to us! We are sorry to be leaving Anguilla. We have heard that it is pretty cold and snowing in Denver!
Becky and Gary (Denver, CO)
Thank you so much. Your place was the perfect setting for our wedding!! We can't wait to see the pictures! We had such a relaxing time. Hopefully we will be able to stay longer next time - maybe for our anniversary!!
Rochelle and Mark (Mt Pleasant, SC)
WOW, WOW, and WOW! Words cannot describe how amazing your house is, how beautiful the island is, how incredibly kind and helpful everyone is! We spent four days and three nights here in paradise for our honeymoon and we're already planning next year’s trip!! We have NEVER stayed in such a beautiful, well thought out, organized, clean place. All of your notes, binders, even the labels on everything were GREAT - a woman after my own heart! Obviously the time we spent here didn't come close to having enough time. We visited Shoal Bay East and West then hiked down to Little Bay beach area. And all we can say is WOW! It is breathtaking here. I can see why you decided to build here. Thank you for everything - it was all beyond perfect! We'll be back next year and every year there after for our honeymoon anniversary!
The Newly Weds
Matthew and Ashley (Ann Arbor, Michigan)
Where do we begin to thank you for such a relaxing, romantic and tranquil honeymoon? We were searching for a location that could provide solitude as well as adventure and excitement within easy reach. Fletch's Cove provided us just that and more. We loved snorkeling everyday right off our own private beach, cruising around the island to check out Shoal Bay and Rendezvous Bay and enjoying a cocktail on the patio while the lights of St Maarten twinkled under the stars. Our week here has been nothing short of perfect - thank you for sharing your lovely oasis-of-a-home with us. Thank you, especially to Catherine and Cecile. We greatly appreciate your preparations in making our honeymoon so special. Your attentiveness made our vacation hassle and worry-free. We hope to return soon to this idyllic spot.
Micah and Mary Beth (Hebron, Kentucky)
We have had a wonderful time yet again at your beautiful home. 2 weeks was just the perfect amount of time to really relax. Cecile was great and we will miss seeing her every day. We hope to be back again next year.
All the best!
Liz and Jay (Chicago, IL)
Our honeymoon has been remarkable. From the second we saw Catherine’s warm smiling face at the ferry we knew we were in good hands. The house is exactly as depicted on the website, what a relief. The architecture and location with the view of St Martin are exquisite. You've done a superb job of stocking the house with everything that one could ever need. We just loved waking to true paradise. Unfortunately, our only complaint would be the time of year we came, only because of the limited selection of dining. We now know and will schedule for mid-November on our return visit. Thank you for opening your home to us. We'll be back!
Sandra and Stefan (Atlanta, GA)
Sometimes when you plan a vacation for years in advance you build it up in your mind as something unattainable. Fletch's Cove more than met our expectations, thank you for sharing your home with us. Our 10 year anniversary was incredible thanks to you and the island. Our favorites included Meads Bay, Shoal Bay and (if you're up for a climb) Little Bay. Luna Rosa was wonderful; great dinner atmosphere and Gwen's (East Shoal Bay) was the most relaxing beach bar on the island. We're heading to Straw Hat tonight and looking forward to a romantic and unfortunately our last dinner on the island. Scilly Cay provided an eventful Sunday afternoon (the band is great). We’ll always remember the week we spent here.
Kurt and Trisha (Indiana)
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us for our honeymoon. We couldn't have had a better time and will definitely be back! Catherine and Cecile were so helpful. Cecile was even able to get us a telescope so we could spend our evenings gazing at the stars. Oliver’s was such a romantic restaurant and the food was....WOW! The view is absolutely breathtaking and so serene. We went fishing and were able to try barracuda, as well as stingray at Oliver’s. The snorkeling here was one of our favorite past times.
Scott and Becky (Carroll Valley, PA)
This is our second visit to Fletch's Cove. After our first trip to Anguilla in 2005, we were always thinking about the incredible beauty of the setting here at the villa, and indeed, all is as spectacular as we remembered. There have even been some improvements. This trip has been so relaxing that we can practically feel our cells regenerating. We leave with brighter brights and a shinier shine. This is a brilliant place - and we think you should open up even more villas across the Caribbean! A Fletch's Grandiose. There is simply no better place anywhere for a couple who loves the sea, the breeze and endless views.
Sue and Rob (Bala Cynwyd, PA)
Some visitors come for their honeymoon but we came for our 50th wedding anniversary and it was just as special! This is our third trip to Fletch's Cove and the ambiance of this beautiful villa, the majestic view, attentiveness of Catherine and Cecile, visiting with Dexter and Trenton, going to the beaches, eating at B&D's BBQ with a local couple - great visit - we hope to return in 2009.
Stan and Bonnie (Kiawah Island, SC)
You have truly found a piece of paradise here. Thank you for sharing it with us. This was our first trip to Anguilla and we have found it to be much more than we could ever have hoped for. Everyone was so very kind and the pride Anguillians feel in their beautiful island was evident everywhere. Cecile & Catherine were wonderful to meet and so helpful. We are now on our way back to Chicago where I am guessing the weather is not so agreeable. We hope to be back very soon!
Thank you again!
Liz and Jay (Chicago, IL)
Oh how we hate to leave! Thank you for helping make this, our second visit to F.C. so special. The island has changed some in the five years since we last were here, but the charms remain - breathtaking vistas, friendly, helpful people, laid back attitude. And the food! Straw Hat, Veya, Koal Keel - not to be missed. We can't wait for our next visit - sooner than five years hopefully!
David and Angela (Columbia, SC)
Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us. We stumbled across Anguilla on the internet and here we are! This house, the island, the people, was EVERYTHING we hoped for and much more. Charanell was kind and helpful and made us feel welcome right away. Catherine was great, always ready to help with anything we needed. Cecile was gracious and so nice, very neat lady. We are very sad to leave and like many of your other guests we agree, a week is just not enough. We are already planning our next trip to Anguilla. Thanks again for a beautiful place to stay and make our first memories of Anguilla the best! You two have created a wonderful piece of paradise here and we will be back for sure!
J & Sunny (Rogne River, Oregon)
A week is not enough! Must we leave.... This is our 4th stay here at beautiful Fletch's Cove. We thank you and your staff - Catherine, Charanell, and Cecile for making this another wonderful vacation. We enjoyed trying some new dining spots - Veya beautiful and good. Scilly Cay great as always - If you want a great inexpensive night we suggest going to Amore Pizzeria get a pie to bring home an a bottle of good red wine from Grand Vin de France just up the road - See you next year!
Kate and Jim (Boulder, Colorado)
What can we say; it was just as good as the first time! Everything was perfect and the view is always amazing. We tried different places to eat this year and between Straw Hat & Veya, we don't know which one was the best. Thanks again for everything.
Diley and Juan "The Honeymooners" (Miami, FL)
Thank you - for what has been an absolutely perfect vacation!! This is our second trip to Anguilla and the island is more beautiful than ever. Fletch's Cove however, is what has made this second trip extra special. You have truly thought of absolutely everything with this villa. The view is outstanding and the amenities plentiful. It seems there are beautiful villas going up everywhere - but we most definitely want to come back to this perfect piece of paradise! Extra thanks to both Catherine and Cecile for their attentiveness. Hope to see you very soon!
Tracy and Gary (Pennington, NJ)
We wanted to let you know that our stay was wonderful, beyond our expectations. Cecile and Janine were both very kind and helpful. They both went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful time. We would definitely recommend the house and island to anyone. We spent a lot of time at the house because it is so peaceful. The view of St. Martin is wonderful. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home. We hope to return in the near future.
Wendy & Christian (New York, NY)
Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. We appreciated all the amenities and our stay was very comfortable. We also enjoyed exploring the island – we put over 300 miles on our car rental. The restaurants you recommended were fabulous! We enjoyed our stay very much. We hope to return soon and we will recommend your home to our friends and family.
Mike & Helen (West Chester, PA)
We truly enjoyed staying at your wonderful house! What a great design with such well thought out details – from the well stocked kitchen to the spectacular view, our stay here could not have been made more comfortable. Anguilla is certainly a beautiful island with more to do and see than we expected. We hope to come back and make up for the short time we spent here as soon as we possibly can. Thanks so much for sharing your place with us.
Ginger & Mark (Poland, Ohio)
One word….Unforgettable! – would describe our visit here to Anguilla and to your beautiful home. A perfect place to spend the first week of our new life together. Everything about Fletch’s Cove is first class. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our week visit included many trips exploring the different beaches and coves, excellent dinners at many of the restaurants you recommended. We appreciate your kindness and generosity in making our honeymoon unforgettable. Three words…We’ll be back!
Charles & Clare (Columbia, SC)
We were amazed, delighted, & impressed with your home and the island of Anguilla. What a perfect trip it has been. Everyone has been so nice. Anguilla is so calm and peaceful we couldn’t dream of a better place. The beaches are beautiful, especially Shoal Bay and the food - there were so many excellent choices. Your home was so comfortable. You thought of everything down to the door latches. We will definitely be back to Fletch’s Cove – our new home away from home. And last but not least were the great Janine & Cecile. They couldn’t be nicer and more helpful. We enjoyed our time with them. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Amy & Ryan (Chicago, IL)
We have just spent 2 weeks of our married life in this wonderful villa. The décor is outstanding & the view is breathtaking. We were overwhelmed with the attention to detail which was superior to the grandest of hotels. It is reassuring to have the warm and attentive Janine & Cecile when self catering in a new/unfamiliar country. We loved the beaches, the breeze, the lobsters, the snappers & the distinctive understated friendliness of the local population.
James & Cherry (London, England)
We couldn’t have asked for a better location for our honeymoon! Your house is absolutely beautiful, and we are so glad you allowed us to use it! We spent a lot of time at the house but also enjoyed exploring the island in our jeep. The beaches here beautiful and the many restaurants fed us very well! So many wonderful places to eat! Another highlight was the day we sailed with Rollins on his boat Chocolat! We have really enjoyed our stay here in Anguilla and look forward to returning before too long! Thank you!
Mary & Corey (Cleveland, OH)
We couldn’t have asked for a vacation that we enjoyed more than Anguilla & Fletch’s Cove. We felt so at home in your spectacular Villa. Fletch’s Cove is beautifully furnished and extremely well stocked. Cecile & Janine were friendly and extremely helpful; we loved meeting them & having them be a part of our fantastic time in Anguilla. We can’t wait to come back and we will recommend your Villa highly.
Peter & Alison (Newington, CT)
Thank you for the use of your home. This was, without a doubt, the best vacation we have ever had. Your home was a centerpiece to our time here. It was so peaceful sitting on the patio overlooking an unbelievable view. We will never forget our time here.
Dan & Sue (Phoenixville, PA)
What a lovely setting your home made for our honeymoon. We could not have asked for a better view! We most enjoyed the private beach, the patio and the gas grill. Cecile took very good care of us and showed us how to properly cut and eat a mango! She is a very sweet lady. We hope to be able to keep a picture of the view in our minds as we head back to reality. How sad it is to have to leave. It was a wonderful second visit for me & a delightful first for Greg.
Stacy & Greg (Springfield, VA)
We’ve visited Anguilla several times & are pleased to have discovered Fletch’s Cove. It has been a delight to stay in such a well designed & thought out house where every whim is catered to. We love Anguilla and we loved living here & being cosseted by all the house has to offer.
Robin & Faye (Hampshire, England)
Thank you very much for the use of your lovely home! This was our first visit to Anguilla & we are already planning our next trip here. We enjoyed exploring every niche of the island and highly recommend dinner at Tasty’s, lobster at the Palm Grove @ Junks Hole, and a night with Bankie at the Dune Preserve (A must). Our favorite evenings were spent here at Fletch’s Cove, enjoying the views, the ocean and
the breezes. Your beautiful home on this wonderful island made for a honeymoon we will always remember.
With our best wishes,
Michele & Eddie (New York, NY)
It’s our last evening in your wonderful Villa, and we’re scheming, dreaming of ways to stay a few days longer. Anguilla is FANTASTIC! The best beaches, restaurants and views. Fletch’s Cove is even better than we had hoped, and Janine & Cecile made sure we wanted for nothing. We’re already planning our next trip! Thank you for helping make ours an unforgettable honeymoon.
David & Angelia (Columbia, SC)
Our last night on this island paradise. Thank you for sharing your villa. It has been an island retreat. The view….the breeze…the ambiance…the sound of the surf…and the list goes on. You succeeded in creating a perfect place on a spectacular island. We have cherished every moment. We enjoyed an outstanding day on Chocolat – Captained by Rollins Ruan – visiting the uninhabited islands of Prickly Pear and Sandy Island PERFECT!!! Our memories are too great & many to list. Thanks again!
Joe & Lana (St. Louis, MO)
The days flew by so quickly. We enjoyed every minute we spent here. The warm island breezes, the ever changing color of the sea and the spectacular view of St. Martin. The Villa is great. Every detail tended to – everything made to make our stay comfortable. It was greatly appreciated. We’ve learned to love this island. This was our third visit. The people, the beaches, and the food all add so much and of course the 80?sunshine. We’ll think of Fletch’s Cove many times this month when we are back in N.H in the deep freeze. No doubt we will be back soon.
Steve & Gus (New Hampshire)
You have a beautiful home on a tranquil island. A much needed break from the stresses of the rest of the world! All the beaches are beautiful but we especially loved Windward Point - it was really worth the drive! We hope to return some day…
Sheri & Phil (New Westminster, BC, Canada)
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your beautiful home, although it was too short! You have provided a beautiful and relaxing haven for us lucky residents (visitors). And all of the amenities add to the charm and relief of not having to run to the store right away for something cool to drink and a snack to eat. The fresh fruit was also wonderful for breakfast, along with the bacon and toast. Like I said, you thought of everything. Since we had already been to Anguilla a couple of times before, we visited some of our favorite spots such as Scilly Cay. We went on Sunday to enjoy lobster, crayfrish and the rum punch. The music was also delightful. We spent three hours there. Our last night, we BBQ’d jerk chicken and took in the beautiful view of the ocean and St. Martin at night. The wonderful breezes were delightful! Vacations are always difficult to end, but we can dream about our return visit to Anguilla and its lovely people.
Thank you again.
Joel & Carolyn (Carmichael, CA)
We came to Anguilla in search of great beaches and fine food. They exceeded our wildest expectations. Fletch’s Cove now has a place in our hearts. We loved the experience of staying in your home. It met our every need and then some. Until we come again, Thank you!
Lynda & Mike (State College, PA)
This has been the most relaxing week and we have enjoyed our stay immensely! What a perfect way to spend a honeymoon! It was better than we imagined. We appreciate the attention given to us by Janine and everyone else. We enjoyed exploring the Island and scuba diving. Especially the dining! We are glad that you opened your home to use and we look forward to returning!
Brent & Jill (Orem, Utah)
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have traveled to numerous islands and we have stayed at a variety of villas, but none as meticulously organized, tastefully decorated and comfortable as yours. We have loved every minute at Fletch’s Cove and eagerly anticipate a return visit. How beautiful is the view from the pool patio! It is always sad when our holiday comes to an end but we have wonderful memories to talk about and share. We hope to return soon. Should you ever find yourselves near our home in Pennsylvania please know that we would love to welcome you as guests.
Lee & Donna (Bethlehem, PA)
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our (too short) stay at Fletch’s Cove. Your home is beautiful and so comfortable. All of the amenities were much appreciated as were the assistance of Janine and Cecile. Some of the memories of Anguilla we will cherish awakening to the beautiful blues of the ocean and sky, snorkeling at Little Bay (transportation by Calvin), elegant dining, exploring the island by car, Sunday at Scilly Cay, the twinkling lights of St. Martin, and perhaps most of all, the friendliness of the people of Anguilla! Thanks again; we hope to return someday soon!
Bev & Jerry (El Cajon, CA)
Fletch’s Cove is absolutely breathtaking – what a marvelous start to our new life together. The island of Anguilla, its beaches, spectacular views and friendly people were even more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. We enjoyed exploring the island in our jeep listening to Reggae tunes, visiting new beaches daily, not to mention the restful times we spent at your charming villa. We love getting to know Janine and Cecile they are wonderful representatives of Anguilla’s hospitality! Thank you so much for allowing us to use beautiful Fletch’s Cove for our honeymoon vacation. The villa and Anguilla will always have a place in our fondest memories. Thank you for everything! We definitely hope to return one day!
Robert & Stephanie (Greenville, SC)
Fletcher had a good idea! The best word we can find to describe this Villa is INTIMATE! We arrived harried and are leaving SERENE. The villa is exquisite in every detail – A true work of art and function. We’ve fallen in love with the area and the land at the end of the road and hope to be your neighbors soon!
Tim & Torie (Stamford, CT)
Our Time in Anguilla has been unforgettable! Fletch’s cove was the perfect place for our honeymoon. Each morning we enjoyed the spectacular view from the patio. Our days were spent exploring the island, walking along the beautiful beaches, snorkeling at Shoal Bay beach, relaxing by the pool at your amazing villa, and of course enjoying all of the wonderful restaurants. We definitely hope to retune to Anguilla soon! Thank you again for everything!
John & Betsy (Chicago, IL)
We are looking out over the aqua-marine & azure sea that separates Fletch’s Cove from St. Martin and are saddened that this is our final morning here. Like many of the newlyweds before us, we are astonished, relaxed, revived and truly humbled by this little oasis. e.e. cummings once wrote “Thank you God for this most amazing day”. Every morning as we peered over our balcony our first thoughts were this. This week was full of many great adventures; snorkeling, sunset walks, culinary experimentations to name a few. All of these have added such color & depth to out experience. How truly profound was our experience here. An extraordinary way to begin married life At the center of all this adventure was Fletch’s Cove, a wonderful haven for playing cards, listening to music & cooking. In the end, this little place has provided us with a pocketful of skillfully stuffed memories that will last us a lifetime. Until our return, we will you many thanks.
All of the best,
Joe & Christine (Chicago, IL)
