“A Little Paradise at Little Butterfly!”
Reviewed March 7, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

So my wife Melissa googles "Best beaches in the World", and we find Anguilla. And then after hours researching possible places to stay on this postcard-perfect-beach-paradise island, we find Little Butterfly. And what a great find it was!!!

It's not directly on the water, but I would argue it's better than being on a beach. Little Butterfly has privacy, space, tennis courts, a friendly dog to protect and keep us company occasionally, a kitchen (oh, a stocked kitchen that was so helpful and wonderful), a nicely air conditioned bedroom, a nice large bathroom, beach chairs, a cooler to take to the beaches, an exercise room with modern equipment, a ping pong table, and more! I don't want to sound like I'm exaggerating, but Little Butterfly had it all, and it was perfect for what we were looking for!

Janine and her staff exceeded our expectations. (a special thanks to Anthnel and Erlene, super friendly, professional, and helpful. And Cypher (sp?) was also extremely friendly and a great listener). I already mentioned that our kitchen was well stocked. We had a large fruit tray, juice, water, cereal, yogurts, bread, snacks, rum punch (who does that?!) just to name a few things. I probably overdid the emails before our visit, and Janine replied to every one, usually within a couple hours! She helped us with a rental jeep, suggestions on what to do, where to go, where to eat, etc. She treated me like family from the first email to my 47th email (smile). She even helped arrange a couple surprises to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary. Simply put, we were taken care of better-than-we-deserved, and given much more than we paid for at Little Buterfly.

Suggestions for a week on Anguilla (and feel free to contact me): Meads Bay was our favorite beach, followed by Shoal Bay (Maunday's Bay is also stunning). Ok, all beaches are "Wow", we went to 10 of them and repeated our favorites the last 3 days. Restaurants recommended would be Veya, Dolce Vita, Straw Hat, Tasty's, Sandbar, E's Oven, and our fav--Blanchard's Beach Shack.

We've been blessed to travel to many wonderful places (Aruba, Jamaica, Curacao, Roatan, Barbados, Belize, Vieques), and the only reason I mention that (sorry if it comes across as a travel snob, smile) is to say that we are able to make some comparisons.......and Anguilla has THE best beaches in one location than anywhere! Melissa and I have never repeated an anniversary trip. Now I am not so sure. And that's not only because of the stunning beaches, but it's also Janine's fault (smile). So in closing, I recommend Anguilla, and without hesitation I recommend Little Butterfly as THE place to call home while you are there!

“A perfect stay at Little Butterfly in Anguilla”
Reviewed February 15, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our second stay at Little Butterfly was a perfect as our first! Janine takes care of all of the details of your booking right from moment one and she's more than willing to answer all of your questions and to make whatever arrangements you may need from car rental to transportation. If you're someone who visits Anguilla because of your desire to get out and about and explore the island, then Little Butterfly is the perfect place for you! It's centrally located on the island, it's close to The Valley and all of the island's stunning and pristine beaches are only a short drive away.....take your pick and try a different one each day! The house itself is beautiful and fully equipped; everything you would ever need is there including chairs and umbrellas to bring to the beach with you. Before your arrival, Janine will ask you what kind of food and snacks you like and then she'll stock the fridge....and I don't mean just with a couple of items.....each time we've been there, we've had a full complement of breakfast food, fruit, snacks and drinks. It's a service that you may not give a lot of advance thought to, but you certainly appreciate it once you arrive and discover you won't have to go to the grocery store for days!! :) What more can I say? We love it! All factors considered; location, amenities, cleanliness, service, price and comfort, we honestly think it's absolutely one of the best accommodations on the island! I'm a bit conflicted in giving it such a good rating because I'd prefer that it doesn't become too popular and unavailable when we'd like to book it!! If that happens, then I suppose Sunset Homes will just have to build another, equally stunning guest house! ;)

“Perfect private paradise”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

If you enjoy experiencing an island vacation privately and without the trappings of a resort, this is the place for you! We spent eight nights at the Little Butterfly in January of 2016. Janine's apartment is perfect for a couple or solo traveler. Her husband, Sugar George, is an architect and designed this home as well as many others on the island.

The apartment is attached to their main house, but designed in a way that provides complete privacy with your own remote-controlled gate to the property. The friendly handyman is accessible and addressed any concerns immediately and the housekeeper even did our laundry. Not only is it spacious with an open concept, it is quiet and has everything you could possibly need.

Erlene met us at the airport, and with our rental car waiting for us at the airport, we followed her to the house. She had a take-out dinner waiting for us. Also, there was a fruit bowl on the counter and another one in the fridge, a can of coffee, breakfast items that we had requested plus more, even a bottle of wine! The full kitchen is huge and well-equipped.

There is a sprawling patio with lounge chairs, patio table and chairs, and another area to sit near the entrance to their fitness center. Tennis courts are in front of the patio, if you like to play. There is a distant view of the ocean and St. Martin as the backdrop. Very pretty.

The king-sized bed was very comfortable - I don't think we ever slept so well in our entire lives! The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, a rain shower, and a beautiful vanity with a glass bowl sink.

We highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants the conveniences of home, but also wants the independence of creating your own vacation. We enjoyed the many beaches, the fantastic restaurants, and the cool entertainment that Anguilla offers. The Little Butterfly was the perfect place to call home while exploring this island paradise!

“Centrally located, spacious, secure, modern villa”
Reviewed January 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We spent 10 days at Little Butterfly and enjoyed our time on Anguilla. This villa was a good choice for us for the following reasons:
* The property is centrally located and it was easy to get to both the eastern and western ends of the island
*The apartment is very roomy with plenty of room to spread out
* The property is secured by a gate and there are dogs on the property making us feel very safe (not that there is any real worry about safety on Anguilla!)
*The villa is private and quiet with a sleek, modern "cool" vibe
*The grounds are well kept
* The bed is comfortable, the bedroom has air conditioning, the linens and towels are plentiful and of nice quality
* Sturdy, comfortable beach chairs were provided as well as a small cooler
*We had a cell phone for making local calls and carrying with us in the car in case of emergency: the internet was reliable and fast enough for our email and texting needs
*Locally made dinner of fish and chicken was provided for our first night due to our late arrival
*Supplies for a hearty breakfast were also supplied in response to their questionnaire
*The staff and the owners, who live upstairs, were thoughtful, courteous and respectful of our privacy
*we were promptly met at the ferry and our orientation was well done
*There were flowers in bowls all over the house which was a lovely touch
*The house was clean and in working order (except a few minor things which have been reported to the owners)

The only "downsides" (and they are minor, for sure) are the fact that you don't have much of a view from anywhere in the house except the front deck over the tennis court (you can see St. Martin in the distance and a little slice of the ocean), the apartment can be a little dark at night, the grounds crew can see into the bedroom so we had the shades pulled most of the time, and the entrance road is rough and eroded. But the size of the property, the reasonable rental rate, and it's central location make it a very nice place to hang your hat while visiting the best island in the Caribbean!

We traveled to Anguilla for the first time and were very glad we chose to stay at Little Butterfly. The accommodations are great. I was surprised at how large the space is - bigger than it appears in the pictures. Everything worked very well, including the A/C in the bedroom. We were there in off-season (late August/early September), so it was very hot and we appreciated the A/C at night. We kept it off all day while we were out at the beaches, and it cooled off very quickly when we got back in the evening. We used the gym, and it has a high end treadmill and a nice assortment of weights. The ping pong table was fun too.

The housekeeper did our laundry for us a couple of times during the week, which was extremely helpful because we carry on our luggage and pack lightly. The location was great and a short drive to either side of the island. Renting a car is a must to get to all the fun beaches. Since we were there in the off season, we had nearly every beach all to ourselves.

Also, I can't speak highly enough about our host, Janine. She was extremely responsive by email as we planned our trip, and stocked the villa with some food and drinks before we arrived, which was a very nice touch. Also, I forgot my favorite hat in our rush to leave on the last day, and she graciously shipped it to me in the U.S. I would definitely recommend staying at Little Butterfly.

This is the place to stay. Great for couples or traveling solo (as I did). Good location in ( middle of island). less then 15 min. drive from Meads Bay. And 20 min drive to Shoal Bay. You will need a car to get around. You can see the island of St. Martin/St. Maarteen from the kitchen window and outdoor seating area. The Litte Butterfly is very clean and well layed out villa. Very private, but just a short drive to a local market and good restaurants. Villa Assistant Erlene White was very helpful and friendly. She help me with getting settled in, answering questions about the island as well as the best market to get my groceries. "She's GREAT". Premier Taxi & Tour Services & Bicycle Rental did a nice job in helping me getting around. There's a restaurant within a 10 min drive of the villa call "Tasty's". It's that a more. the food is good and not expensive. Smokey's (at the Cove) is another place to eat great for lunch, right on the beach.
