From the minute we arrived at Antigua airport and were collected by Edgar in his taxi (arranged by Marilyn) we felt as though we were on holiday. Edgar pointed out several landmarks that we were to become familiar with over the following week as we explored the island, and a little about life on Antigua. The Anchorage is situated in a fantastic location between Nelsons Dockyard and English Harbour, the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and were a great place for us to base ourselves with plenty to see and do in the local area. Marilyn was extremely thoughtful and her local knowledge and contacts made all the difference when it came to planning our days. We particularly wanted to walk and Marilyn made contact with a local guide - Dassa - with whom we spent a few hours walking to the top of Signal Hill through the rainforest - this trip proved to be one of the highlights of the holiday. We definitely hope to return next time we visit our family who reside in the the BVIs.
