What our guests think

  • We were excited about staying at Sweet Return and we were not disappointed. A very private but convenient location that is well maintained and has every resource you could want. Great kitchen and facilities, housekeeping service was really outstanding, Easy to get everywhere on the island – close to west end restaurants and grocery stores – great location to get to all of Anguilla’s fantastic beaches. We already booked for next year!

  • You really left nothing out! We loved being able to run between the pool and the beach. Spoiled…that’s what we have become! There is no more beautiful water anywhere!

  • I have to say you are a delight to deal with. You’re much more thorough than any of the other rental agents I have dealt with over the years! If your ears are ringing, it’s because I’ve been telling everyone what a delight you are to work with.

  • We loved this villa! We normally stay in a hotel but we are villa converts now as it had the best of everything – the privacy of our own home, leisurely breakfasts and a pool for the kid’s to jump in first thing in the morning and to play in when we came back from the beach.
