What Past Guests Are Saying
Jerry & Deb
What a delight!
Staying at the Moonraker was an absolute delight. Whenever you see a property online, you always wonder what it will really be like when you get there. Our only surprise was the house was nicer than the pictures - outstanding. This was our 5th trip to the Caribbean but first to anguilla and we've never stayed in such a beautiful, well equipped, immaculent home. Paul was wonderful to deal with and Jackie and her staff at at Island Dream Properties did everything possible to make our stay a memorable one. If you've never been to anguilla, you're missing the opportunity of a lifetime. The people are wonderful and the beaches are by far the best of any of the other islands we have visited. If it sounds like we had a great time, you're right. In fact, we had such a fabulous experience, we've already booked the Moonraker for a trip again next year.
Iâ€™m long overdue in writing this review but Moonraker is so fabulous I couldnâ€™t let it go. We rented the villa in June 2012 and could not have been happier. The villa is better than advertised. Rarely after looking at photos of a property do you find it better than it looks but Moonraker is even better than the photos! The owners take great care and pride in Moonraker and it shows. You really feel you are staying in a luxury home and not just a rental. Owners, staff and property management are all wonderful and extremely helpful.
We had a group of 12, ages 84 - 13 and we all loved it! There was plenty of room for everyone and the layout is excellent for a large group. The kitchen was equipped the best I have ever seen in a rental. I highly suggest Chef Tyrone make you a meal as that was one of the highlights of our stay.
The attention to detail is wonderful; everything you need or think you want is there from the beach chairs to take to the beautiful beaches to books to read while relaxing.
Our entire family highly recommends this villa and thanks Paul and Linda for sharing their piece of paradise with us!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 02/21/2013
Many thanks for the lovely review, kind words and feedback. We were delighted to hear how much you all enjoyed it. We do take great pride in Moonraker but more importantly great satisfaction in making vacations in Anguilla enjoyable for all. We are especially pleased to hear that Georgia and the team looked after you so well and the Chef Tyrone did you proud. It was simply our pleasure to help make your stay the one you were looking for and more importantly we are thrilled that you found both Moonraker and Anguilla so fantastic! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future whenever you are ready. Many thanks. Paul & Linda
Mr & Mrs G.
We were lucky enough to spend our Honeymoon (December 12) at Moonrakers, Anguilla - having seen photographs of the property before we arrived, nothing prepared us for the reality of arriving in paradise! The Villa provides the highest standards of luxurious accommodation - beautifully furnished, well equipped and stunningly located. Every aspect of the Villa has been lovingly and thoughtfully chosen, and I must say that The Moonraker Team are truly exceptional, owners Paul and Linda, and the girls at the Villa Georgia and Brenda went above and beyond to make our honeymoon truly magical.
We spent two weeks exploring anguilla and enjoying the Villa, I must say that the location of Moonrakers is fabulous, uninterrupted sea views, peaceful and tranquil location - you feel like you are the only guests on the Island up there! We enjoyed the culinary delights of Chef Tyrone during our visit - great chef and a genuinely great chap - so friendly and cheerful, he spent time with us giving us hints and tips on where to go on the Island, really wonderful.
The Island offers some fantastic hidden treasures, the beaches are out of this world - picture postcard, and we enjoyed some fantastic meals and great live music (especially on a Sunday at Gwens or The Dune).
My advice - embrace "Anguillan Time", we all lead busy, hectic lives, and visiting Moonrakers, Anguilla allows you to leave your everyday life at the door. Step into unrivalled luxury and paradise and enjoy the Island charm. There is something magical about anguilla. A very, very special place, a fabulous Villa - a perfect honeymoon. Never to be forgotten.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 01/14/2013
Hi Danny and Alice,
We are so pleased to hear that all went to plan and that you had a true Anguilla experience on Honeymoon. It was really a pleasure making it all happen for you. The comments and feedback are just lovely and we thank you sincerely for this. Georgia and the rest of the staff were so happy to host your stay and can't wait to see you back
Many thanks again, it was our pleasure

New York, NY
Overdue posting this review, as we stayed at Moonraker back in late May/early June.
From the start the owner (Paul) and the on island management (Jackie and team) were top notch. They were completely straight forward â€“ everything came as advertised and they were a pleasure to deal with. Plus the housekeeping staff (Georgia and Danielle) were really wonderful, including going out of their way to assist when an unexpected situation occurred and a member of our family needed to seek medical attention.
This villa is truly fantastic, really is as incredible as it looks in pictures on the website - all of our jaws just dropped upon arrival. Enormous luxurious bed/bath rooms and the whole house is laid out and decorated so well. It was just a pleasure to spend time at this villa.
The pool is quite simply the best Iâ€™ve ever encountered â€“ just unbelievable. Itâ€™s super large, with great features (partially submerged sun beds, swim up bar with stools, large shaded area with submerged seating â€“ plus an enormous hot tub). The whole outdoor space was just outstanding - lots of seating, covered areas, huge outdoor dining table â€“ was so comfortable and fun.
Only downsides are 1) Location is a bit remote, so may seem strange for someone new to anguilla. It was our 2nd time to the island, so after a day getting to know our way around the East End we became very comfortable (and realized how close the villa was to Island Harbor and Shoal Bay East). 2) While there are lovely water views, itâ€™s not on a beach for swimming (the owner is very up-front about this though â€“ and you do have the incredible pool).
So in summary â€“ this is a magical property that comes as advertised, and considering the extent of what you get, it offers good value on the island. Iâ€™d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful villa experience.

Dear Mike, Many thanks for the detailed review and feedback that will certainly help others understand what a great offerring we make with Moonraker so that guests get a luxury break in Anguilla.We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the stay and the villa despite the unfortunate medical issue whilst there. We look forward to having you back again at Moonraker when you choose to visit Anguilla again!! Best regards Paul & Linda
I have been lucky enough to visit the Moonraker in anguilla for a second time (Oct 21-26) and once again it was heaven. The Moonraker team will pick you up as soon as you get through customs, and then be prepared for paradise. The Villa is truly unbelievable! The spectacular website pictures do not come close to the amazing feel of the villa. The furnishings and dĂ©cor are of the finest quality and flat screens are located in every bedroom. The Villa has wifi and Voip so you can stay connected. The pool is fantastic and 14 feet deep. I was able to swim laps in the morning and the 18 person hot tub is perfect for star gazing at night. The bath tubs and showers are quite impressive, and the kitchen is huge. I had the best sleep ever drifting away with the windows open, feeling the cool ocean breeze while listening to the surf.
Jackie with Island Dream Properties will help organize any activity you choose to do. One day we went on a boat to see the giant sea turtles and we saw over 20; it was phenomenal! Of course we jumped off the cliffs in Little Bay - breathtaking. Our typical day was going to the world class beaches in the morning and then sitting by the pool in the afternoon. The pool has such a great view of St. Bart's and St. Martin. The audio system is sensational, you can plug in your ipod and hear it in any room or by the pool. The beaches on the island are pristine; we had them all to our self. Our favorite Beaches were Shoal Bay West, Rendevous Bay, and Shoal Bay East. We enjoyed getting breakfast every morning at Le Bon Pain and we were fortunate to eat at several great restaurants. The rum punch is fantastic as well! Georgia, the housekeeper, made sure everything was clean and is such a delight. She really made our trip extra special. I travel a lot and hands down I can say the Moonraker is the best place I have ever stayed!! I am hoping to make a return visit soon!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 11/12/2012
Dear Michelle, Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you to make your stay a success and we are only too pleased to hear that it surpassed expectations again!! Thank you for the lovely and helpful feedback. I am sure others will find this useful. We look forward to seeing you again and again at Moonraker and Georgia is already getting ready!! Many thanks again Paul & Linda
The most amazing experience ever...
We recently returned from two week at Moonraker villa in anquilla.
Prior to booking we researched in detail paying particular attention to review websites. We had a reasonable budget and had only decided on the destination. The website picture looked impressive.
However on arrival the Villa is considerable more impressive, externally its is imposing very well maintained with the garden well cut and manicured.
On entry the main living space in the Villa is vast, with a open plan lounge leading into a very very well equipped kitchen. The kitchen has every conceivable modern device to satisfy even the most expert of Chef. The lounge is comfortable yet grand, both the Kitchen and lounge leads out onto the outside area.
The outside space in incredible, its extremely well designed and functional. The pool is vast and has every thing from sunken bar stool to partially submerged loungers. Next to a pool is a very large Jacuzzi.
There a very good external eating area which is shaded.
The views from the Villa are probably the best in anguilla with St Martin clearly visible.
The Suites are all large and very comfortable with over sized bathroom and the best of finishes.There is also a gym, cinema room (with hundreds of Dvds) and a office.
During our stay we where looked after by Georgia the housekeeper and also enlisted the services of Tyrone the chef, both where accommodating and extremely friendly, particularly to our young children.
In summary I cannot imagine in staying in a more complete villa, its not just the quality of everything or the expanses of space but the attention to detail in the Villa. From the equipment in the kitchen to the considered books .
As a family it was the most amazing holiday we have ever had and found ourselves reluctant to leave the Villa and keen to return.
I struggle normally to relax , however I found myself barefoot and with a book in my hand in a day or so.
Moonraker is quite simply perfect.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 09/20/2012
Thank you so much for the fantastic review. We are pleased to see you got the relaxation you were looking for and that you found the Anguilla vibe. It was a pleasure arranging everything with you and we look forward to planning with you for your next trip to paradise!

Most amazing trip ever
We went to Moonraker aug 11-18th 20012. There were 11 of us and all I can say is wow! Every expectation was far exceeded. we even thought of hiding the garage to stay.
The villa was amazing, staff incredible and food to die for. We used Chef William and even created a food photo album. Just amazing. we did not have to do anything but enjoy!
Danielle and Georgia are fantatstic! They are so sweet and made sure everyone was happy and had what they needed everyday. They went above and beyond!
We renewed our wedding vows at the villa and the pictures are stunning! Why go anywhere else! We will be back!
Thank you Paul and Linda for openening your home. Truly a dream vacation!
Thank you for making our vacation dreams a reality!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 08/25/2012
We are so pleased to hear that all went to plan. The photos of the ceremony are just lovely and it was really a pleasure making it all happen for you. The comments and feedback are just lovely and we thank you sincerely for this. Georgia and the rest of the staff were still talking about it during our recent visit and like us they simply can not wait to plan your next visit and make it equally as enjoyable.
Many thanks again, it was our pleasure
Paul & Linda
Best vacation ever!
This was not my husband's and my first time to anguilla so we were pretty familiar with the island and its beauty. We wanted to come back but have some friends join us to fall in love with the island as well. I was in contact with Paul, the owner of the Moonraker, who hooked me pretty quickly on the beauty of his home and everything included in staying at a lovely home such as his. Needless to say, we were all in awe upon arriving to the home from the details of the decor to the view out the great room.
The home is perfect with views breathtaking from all windows. We normally spent our days either pool side or exploring the many beaches. My husband and I dive so we were under water most mornings! The house staff was wonderful and not only did they take care of us in the home, but when looking for an aTM, Danielle helped the boys find an aTM and led them with her car! Georgia and Danielle greeted the kids and us every morning with big smiles and laughter.
We had Chef Tyrone cook for us most nights and his food was amazing. He knows the Moonraker kitchen very well so we had beautiful meals outside every night and he is quite humorous as well so he kept us laughing as our group loves to laugh and kick back.
Paul and Linda's home was perfect and we are already planning our return trip for next year! Thank you Paul!!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 07/27/2012
Elise, Thank you for the great feedback on Moonraker!! We are so pleased that we were able to make your vacation one to remember. You have now found your perfect home in our perfect island and we certainly look forward to helping you return again for more rest and relaxation
All the staff thoroughly enjoyed having you visit and we all can't wait to see you back again in the future! It was great working with you to make it all happen. Many thanks Paul & Linda
Home away from Home.
Very nice to go on vacation and sleep as well as do you do at home. This was our second visit, we enjoyed it as much as the first.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 07/27/2012
Many thanks for the compliments on Moonraker!! We are so pleased that you liked the villa as much second time around and we can't wait to see you back again in the future! Many thanks Paul & Linda
"Secluded Luxurious Caribbean Retreat"
My wife and I recently stayed at Moonraker with our 20 month old daughter. This villa is truly the total package. We have stayed at many fine places throughout the Caribbean, but Moonraker takes the prize. This secluded, luxurious and secure hideaway is the perfect retreat for those who enjoy thier privacy but also want to enjoy thier life without fear of the paparazzi.
From the moment you pull up to the villa and walk through the front door, your senses are overwhelmed with the refined, yet unpretentious luxury that is so tastefully presented. From the furnishings and appointments, the fully equipped gourmet kitchen and luxurious bedding, everything about this villa is grand. The pool area at Moonraker is like something out of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous". The description online of "custom designer pool" is clearly not descriptive enough for this refined oasis! They say that anguilla has some of the best beaches in the world, what they fail to mention is that if you stay at Moonraker, you will enjoy one of the finest pools in the world as well. This property has it all!
In our opinion, if you are looking for a secluded, private, romantic and luxurious getaway in the Caribbean, look no further... Moonraker is it! From the moment you leave, you will be trying to figure out when you are going to return. The owner of the property goes above and beyond your expectations to ensure your stay is everything you thought it would be. His staff is spot on...especially Georgina the housekeeper. She is a real gem! We highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 04/11/2012
Dear John, Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you to make your stay a success and we are only too pleased to hear that it surpassed expectations!! Thank you for the lovely and helpful feedback. We look forward to seeing you again at Moonraker and Georgia is already getting ready!! Many thanks again. Paul & Linda
Amazing House, Gorgeous Beaches and Great Staff!
Kim and I stayed at Moonraker with Michelle and Jim the first week of February. We stayed in the Sea Breeze Suite and could not have been more impressed. We had large sliding doors/windows to look out over the gigantic pool, hot tub, ocean and mountains. The views were amazing and seeing the pictures makes me miss them even more. The bed was large and comfortable. The shower is huge and you can look out over the ocean!
The pool and entire pool area are amazing. We spent a lot of time out by the pool and hot tub. We layed out, went swimming, grilled out and enjoyed many cold beverages. Even when the sun went down the area was beautiful with the coloful pool lights. The sound system was also a lot of fun both inside and outside the house!
The entire staff was fantastic. The house was always clean. Anytime we had a question or needed anything, it was comforting to know it was a phone call away (if Georgia and Danielle didn't already have the answer). Compliments to Paul, his wife and their entire staff at Island Dream Properties for making everything very easy! Everyone was very responsive leading up to and during our trip!
The beaches were gorgeous and very secluded. The white sand and turquoise water was unlike anything I have ever seen. The sun was always shining and anguilla has many beautiful sights. The people all over the island were very polite.
Kim and I got engaged on the rocks at Sile Bay. We will cherish the memories for a long time!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 07/27/2012
We are so pleased you enjoyed the stay and found Moonraker and Anguilla to be just what you were looking for. Even better news on the engagement!! Come back soon, we would love to see you all again. Cheers Paul & Linda
Michelle and Jim Kilchenman
The Best Week of Our Entire Life
The week at the Moonraker was the best week of our entire life. The villa is unbelievable, the service is top of the line, and the views are breathtaking!! You might think it isn't possible, but the house is even more amazing than the pictures. It is truly spectacular to wake up every morning and walk out of your bedroom and see the waves crashing on the shore. The pool is perfect and is even 14 feet deep! Everyone loved floating on rafts in the pool, soaking up the sun, and cooking out. The hot tub seats 18 people and was perfect to go out at night and star gaze. We were also impressed with the technology in the villa. It has Wi-Fi throughout the house, a Voip phone for international calls, and a multi-room/pool-deck audio system. We stayed in the Savannah suite which had a library, TV room, huge closet, a very comfortable bed, and a gigantic shower. The interior design of the Moonraker was sensational. Even the faucets were beautiful. The furniture was really comfortable as well! It was truly like being in heaven for a week and the beaches all over anguilla were beautiful.
Jackie and her team at Island Dream Properties were so helpful. They cater to every need and made us feel like we were at home. You are in great hands with the entire Moonraker staff. Georgia and Danielle were so helpful at the house and were some of the nicest people we have ever met. We were fortunate enough to have Chef Tyrone make us a meal and it was fantastic. The steak dinner was delicious and the ice cream dessert was equally as good. We can't thank Paul and his wife enough for opening up their beautiful home to us. Paul gave us great recommendations of what to do when we were on the island and was always very responsive to all our questions. We felt like they really cared about our experience, and we can't thank them enough for the great memories we will always have at the Moonraker. We hope to come back to the Moonraker and live in Paradise for another week.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 02/09/2012
Many thanks Michelle and Jim for the lovely review, kind words and feedback. We were delighted to hear how much you all enjoyed it and the photo's look amazing.

It was simply our pleasure to help make your stay the one you were looking for and more importantly we are thrilled that you found both Moonraker and Anguilla so fantastic! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future whenever you are ready. Many thanks. Paul & Linda
Words cannot describe! We had our wedding ceremony in anguilla. It was all fairy tale! 16 stayed at the Moonraker. Hands down, this is the most beautiful home we have ever been to! You walk in and think "Oh my God! 16 jaws dropped! 6 couples had their own private suite. We travelled with my 2 sons and their 2 friends so the apartment fit them perfectly with their own full kitchen and living room. The pool was spectacular! Huge! Island Dream Properties were always helpful with our every need. We hired Chef William and he was a huge blessing. His meals were awesome. And he was very reasonable. He did our wedding dinner. It was perfect. Special thanks to Danielle and Georgia who cleaned every day and also helped in every way possible. Owner Mr. Collier was so wonderful. After my first email, he detailed everything for us. We saw the pictures of the home but somethings those can be deceiving. We went to anguilla last year to actually see the home. If anything, pictures cannot show all the grandeur! This was truly a dream come true for our wedding. I could never say enough wonderful things about all of our trip. It's the people of anguilla that make this island so special. They are so friendly and kind. Island time is their way of life. Anguilla will always be a very special place in our hearts.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 12/07/2011
Dear Vi and Lawrence
Linda and I are so pleased to hear that all went well for your special occasion. It was truly a pleasure to help you plan your wedding and to see that everyone enjoyed it so much makes us very proud. The photo looks awesome!
More importantly, another party have got to know and love Anguilla and its people as we do and hopefully all will be back in the future to enjoy its hospitality again and again.
Your comments are lovely and I will pass on the best wishes and thanks to all the staff.
Many thanks again
Paul & Linda
A do again and again and again...
We have now stayed at Moonraker twice and have booked to return for our third trip. The service and hospitality offered by the owners is over the top. Anything and everything is handled with perfection. The staff at the property are professional, kind and lovely. You will miss Georgia when you leave.
The house itself is beautiful, private, and luxurious. The kitchen has every amenity you can imagine. The pool is spectacular.
If you are into low key decadence and luxury, Moonraker is the place for you.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 12/03/2011
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to have you as Guests again at Moonraker and Linda and I were so pleased that you had such a great vacation
We look forward to welcoming you both back again in March so you experience Monraker and Anguilla again and relax and recuperate.
Gerogia is already getting ready as she loves having you stay!!
Regards Paul & Linda
I found this wonderful villa on a website and contacted the owner. He answered all my questions about the house and the island. The villa looks amazing in pictures, but the pictures can't prepare you for this stunning property. Every little detail has been taken into consideration in this villa. It is perfectly maintained. The island is beautiful and you won't find prettier beaches anywhere in the world. The people are friendly and nice everywhere. This was one of the best vacations in our life and we can't wait to go back!!!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 09/13/2011
Thank you so much for the feedback on Moonraker and our beloved Anguilla.
It was a pleasure working with you to make your vacation a success and we are only too pleased to hear that you will visit again as we and all the staff would love to see you again.

Moonraker is an exquisite retreat!!!
Moonraker is exquisite!!! Thank you so much, Paul, for giving us the opportunity to stay at your lovely retreat! Not only is it absolutely stunning visually, but it is so very comfortable. We all had complete quiet and privacy in our individual suites and yet we could enjoy family time in the shared spaces. The pool is magnificent and we found ourselves getting in and out of it throughout the day and into the evening. We had chefs come in several times and the food and service was so spectacular that we got quite spoiled! We also loved the charming housekeepers and the concierge. All was absolutely wonderful and we will recommend it to our friends without hesitation! We also look forward to returning again one day!
Response from Paul Moonraker - 07/31/2011
We are so pleased to hear that you found the peaceful break you were looking for and that all the family enjoyed Moonraker and Anguilla. The house staff had a great time looking after you all and we do hope to see you all again soon in Anguilla.

~Our amazing stay at Moonraker!~
We just returned from our amazing stay at Moonraker and boy am I one sad gal! For months I had been looking at the pictures on the website, excited about our approaching trip but nothing can describe how it is to finally walk through the doors to Moonraker for the first time! It took my breath away when we walked into that magnificent home! Jackie was so welcoming. She showed us everything we needed to know about Moonraker. We were truly pampered & spoiled for 12 glorious days! The housekeeper, Georgia was the sweetest & saw about our every need. We stayed in the Savannah suite. Wow! How absolutely amazing it was! The walk in shower is bigger than my bathroom & the huge rainshower shower head...well, my husband had to drag me out of there every day. No need to buy any bottled water. Paul has a filtration system that is unreal! Best water I have ever tasted straight out of the tap! The king size bed was so comfortable with the most luxurious, softest sheets ever. The great room was astonishing! To sit on the couch & see that gorgeous pool & the ocean beyond, is indescribable! Then the fabulous kitchen, ready for 16+ guests, such a "chef's delight". Chef William prepared a dinner for us for our 37th anniversary & my husband's 58th birthday which are on the same day. It was so delicious & the presentation was off the scale! To sit at the beautiful diningroom table set for 16+ was really something! I played the one tune I know on the baby grand piano too. (ha) The media room was fun to go down to every night with popcorn. What a DVD collection Linda & Paul have! The pool...Wow...yes the pool is spectacular to say the least! The hot tub is a must at night to gaze up at the stars! The grounds are so lush with bougainvillea, oleander, palms, hibiscus, banana trees full of bananas! Dear Linda & Paul, How can we ever thank you enough for sharing your Moonraker? You made our dreams come true! Thank you so very much! Teresa & Buddy

The best place in anguilla
My wife booked this beautiful mansion for my 40th B-Day and I have to say I didn't think I could love her more, but after staying in the Moonraker!!! I do,I do. It was a total of 12 people and we all had a blast!! The house is so modern and well equipped I just loved it. When I say that the owner of this mansion did everything right (and I'm hard to impress) He has to sweethearts that came and cleaned every morning to keep it spotless (Georgina and Danielle) they are truly missed. So moving on to Chef William!! His food was amazing.And reasonable prices. Next was the entertainment room where all the guys watched the NBa finals thank god for that. If there was something bad to say about the Moonraker I would say it but I have nothing. Oh maybe it could use a pool table (billiards). Well I tried to make it seem like this house didn't have everything you need but if he put's a pool table in there then I would go speechless! I love the Moonraker
Response from Paul Moonraker - 05/03/2011
We are so glad to hear that your suprise birthday celebration went so well and that all enjoyed Moonraker so much.
We are working on the pool table now!!

It's Really Real!!
Breathtaking, spacious, classy, serene, and well equipped are only a few adjectives that describe the Moonraker. Prior to our departure my husband and I would periodically look at the pictures anticipating our stay. During our travels to anguilla my excitement grew hoping it was all we'd hoped for. Upon our arrival, driving through the front gates my first thought was "It's really real!!â€ť When I entered the home I was in awe, it totally exceeded my expectations. My first evening there I sat out on the terrace, enjoyed the warm breeze, listened to the ocean, and just looked at the pool change colors for about an hour. Besides the beauty of the home there were so many features within the house that I enjoyed, but because I'm a music lover I would say my favorite was the Bose system throughout the house. The fellas seemed to enjoy the theater room as they watched the NBa Playoffs every evening!! This was the perfect home for a group of couples (We had 6 couples). To top it all off, the people that I worked with to make this 40th birthday celebration for my husband happen was priceless. Many thanks to Paul for being the first person I encountered and the last (I'm not forgetting the middle:o), just making sure I was taken care of. Thank You Jackie and Patra of Island Dream Properties for setting things up every step of the way. Thank you Chef William and Sharron, not just for your delicious cuisines and excellent service but also for your patience with the 100 emails I sent prior to arrival lol. Last but not least, many thanks to both Georgina and Danielle for keeping the house and being such a pleasure to have around. I look forward to seeing you all again.

Beautiful & Relaxing
What a beautiful house with all the amentities one could hope for on vacation. Thank you very much to the owner, rental agency & staff for making the trip one of the very best we have ever taken as a family. The hospitality was terrific and the comforts outstanding but dont take my word for it, go see for yourself!

Hi John, Many thanks for your kind words; we are really pleased to hear that your stay was the one you were looking for. I am sorry we could not accommodate the extra days at the end but the next guests were actually Linda and I for our annual break and I can't go without my Moonraker fix! We look forward to welcoming you back anytime you wish to travel to Anguilla. Regards Paul & Linda

Moonraker is a magnificent property in both design and interior decor. The pool and deck are especially spectacular . It is a first class luxury estate --without question, and is located on a hilltop cliff overlooking the ocean . Our stay was in February of 2011 and the anguilla weather was perfection also.
I would say the only downside is that this particular residence is alittle off the beat and path, as it is located on the West End of the island near Shoal Bay. It is quite far from major resorts, significant beaches, any decent restaurants and the very modest night life anguilla has to offer. Plan on a 30 minute drive through some pretty rugged terrain/marginal roads in order to reach such destinations. This could be a consideration for some guests, depending on what you are looking for. I would say if "opulent seclusion" is your objective, you will not be disappointed.

Many thanks John and Peggy for your lovely comments on our Anguilla home. We are very pleased that you found Moonraker to your liking and that you were housed in total comfort for your stay but disappointed to hear that Anguilla was not everything you had hoped for. Relaxation along side the favourable Anguilla weather at least allowed you to relax and unwind! The remote location of Moonraker is what most guests seem to search for in order to receive total seclusion and tranquillity. We are sorry to hear that this may not have been quite what you and Peggy had in mind for your Anguilla stay or that the quiet, understated and laid back nature of Anguilla and its people did not match your pre-vacation perception of our beloved island. For other readers Moonraker is not West End but East and 10 minutes from Shoal Bay East and some lovely restaurants in Island Harbour. Many thanks again Paul & Linda
There can't be anything better!
My Girlfriend and I along with some friends were looking for a much needed vacation to relax and recharge before Xmas, I had heard of Moonraker and once I had seen the website I knew this was the place to go. We had all travelled extensively in the Caribbean but have never been more pleasantly surprised than with our stay at this perfect villa in a truly fantastic island, it was a real surprise, friendly and welcoming people, great restaurants and the best beaches I have seen anywhere.
When I first spoke to Paul (the owner) , I knew that this trip would be different as an attentive, caring attitude and concern for how he could assist to make our plans work was evident from the start. Recommendations on travel route, transfers, rental cars, trips, etc were like a private concierge. Even after all his initial help he then ensured that the booking and all our needs (groceries, meet and greet, transfers, restaurant bookings etc.) were handled by his local management team (including secure payment and professional contract) so on arrival we already felt as though we knew the team looking after us on our stay. Fantastic!
Arriving at Moonraker, overlooking St Martin and St Barths simply took our breath away. There were seven enormous suites each with a private luxury bathroom furnished with luxury fixtures and fittings such as overhead rain showers, designer dual sinks; sensor lighting etc. A vast vaulted great room overlooking the stunning lit pool and terrace had a designer glass wall that fully opened to reveal the sea and sunset.
We have found our perfect island in anguilla and in Moonraker our perfect Villa. Thank you very much to Paul, Jackie and the team for a fantastic holiday. It is a wonderful place and simply the best experience we have ever had in the Caribbean. We left calm, refreshed and ready for Xmas and we will definitely return again in the future!

We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. We know Jackie and the team thoroughly enjoyed having you and we are glad the bags turned up for you swiftly!! We look forward to having you all back again in the future and we are pleased to hear that more people are discovering just how fantastic Anguilla is!

Unbeatable - Moonraker Villa leaves nothing to be desired - a truly incredible experience of pure indulgence! The villa is breathtaking and the views are amazing, it most definitely exceeded all of our expectations and believe or not, it is even better than the pictures portray! The owners spared no expense- the villa is huge at over 15,000 square feet with 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms- all impeccably appointed and my husband and I were fortunate to have it all to ourselves! The entire villa is marbled, the kitchen is a true chef's kitchen stocked with any tool and appliance you could imagine, the bathrooms are large and the rain showers are wonderful! The main living room area was probably my favorite, with incredible picture windows looking out to the sea. We stayed in the Savannah suite, which is gorgeous - the furnishings and linens were absolutely first class. It has a large master bedroom, dressing room, bathroom and sitting area overlooking the pool. The pool- what can I say- I have never seen a residential pool so large, it truly feels like you are at a resort. One of the best things about Moonraker are the owners- they did everything possible to make our stay perfect. From the personal welcome they arranged at the ferry terminal upon arrival and at departure, to their lovely parents who made sure our every need was taken care of during our stay and to their generosity in letting us use their personal SUV to drive for the week, they are incredible hosts in every sense! Our stay at Moonraker Villa was truly an unforgettable one! From the moment we arrived to the tearful moment we left, it was absolutely incredible and unbelievably memorable. I would recommend the villa to anyone who desires the quiet solitude and exclusivity of anguilla in an absolutely first class property. If you're fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit, do it. Unreservedly recommended in every sense.

Simply Stunning! A Truly World Class Experience!
My wife and I had an amazing experience at Moonraker. There is no way I could do the property and owners justice.
The house is absolutely stunning; though seemingly impossible, our expectations were far surpassed. While it might not seem possible, the pictures do not do the property justice. The level of thought, care, and attention to detail Paul and Linda put in is quite amazing. My wife and I would occasionally ask one another what we would do differently, or what we would do to improve it -- those conversations ended with both of us scratching our heads, as neither of us could really come up with anything.
The Savannah suite was phenomenal. It's such a relaxing space, and the same level of attention to detail shown in every other area of the house is prevalent herein. We toured the rest of the property and were just as impressed with each of the other suites as we were with Savannah.
The pool is so well-designed it's almost absurd; everything from the pavilion, to the built-in bar, to the depth, to the lighting, to the built in chaises -- it's just phenomenal. We enjoyed the sauna/hot tub each night, and ate at each of the outdoor tables (as well as the main one in the dining room). All offered divine experiences.
Having just spent quite a bit of time dining out each night before our stay, we ended up picking up items and cooking in most nights. And how easy it was! We both cook quite often, and that was a well-equipped kitchen! In fact, the only thing we could come up with that we would change (and this goes for the entire property!) would be a steel for the knives. When I mentioned this to Paul he said he would have one installed immediately. That is the devoutness he and Linda extend to ensure one's stay is utter perfection.
The cinema room was fantastic - same for the fitness room.
All in all, we had an absolutely amazing time; we've bragged about it to friends and family, and are champing at the bit to have a family gathering at Moonraker.

We look forward to welcoming you both again when you need to chill, relax and stargaze. The feedback on facilities is always welcome as we continually look to improve. The knife sharpener is fully installed! Regards Paul & Linda

Absolutely Gorgeous; pampered elegence!
I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at the Moonraker in anguilla! Upon arrival, the Moonraker property is so impressive as the Pristine and Pallatial white Villa rises up to greet you! Once inside, the marble and natural anguillan stone entranceway and living room designed with modern elegance and Caribbean Charm, is breathtaking! We were hot from our journey to anguilla, but the cool rooms and the pool and terraces cooled us down and we really enjoyed the Caribbean trade breezes as we enjoyed our Champagne reception! We enjoyed so many activities, such as, horseback riding on the beach and scuba divingon the reefs! With over 33 gorgeous beaches to enjoy, we were in heaven! But, as fun as it was to swim in the beautiful surf and socialize with the charming Caribbeans, the Moonraker Villa was our precious sanctuary where our every luxury was greatly appreciated! Our suites were so comfortable and we felt completely pampered.The pool is amazing! A refreshing swim in the morning was such a great way to start the day and we naturally gravitated to it as an oasis day and night!
This beautiful Villa is a five star rental that we will definitely recommend to all our friends.
Thank-you to our houskeepers; Georgia and George for always being cheerful and making us feel at home. We had such a wonderful time and we will definitely look forward to our return!!!

Moonraker Villa -- Review
This place is everything you see on the website and so much more!!! I just returned from spending a week at Moonraker Villa 7-14 March, 2010. I stumbled across the Moonraker website, http://www.moonrakeranguilla.com/ while "researchingâ€ť through different search engines looking for accommodations in Anguilla. I went to the villa with my wife and 2 boys (22 and 18). Everyone had a great time. The villa exceeded our expectations on all fronts. We have stayed at luxury villa's in other parts (Hawaii, East Coast USA, Italy, etc) of the world and this ranks at the very top of the list. It's great for families or groups, small and large. The villa is very close to the sea and provides excellent views of St. Maarten, St Barthâ€™s and beyond from every room and especially the pool area. The pool is almost resort size and is 14 ft deep at one end but the shallow end at the other side also provides excellent swimming. The beaches (the best part of Anguilla) are easily accessible by car. In fact, Shoal Bay East, one the worldâ€™s top rated beaches is only 10 minutes away. The caretakers of the villa are a husband and wife team who are very accommodating and attentive. The villaâ€™s furnishings and dĂ©cor are the finest quality and very comfortable. Flat screen, HD TVâ€™s are located in each bedroom and thereâ€™s a dedicated media room as well. The kitchen has every gadget you need and a large BBQ grill was put to good use a few nights as well. I could go on and on and on about this villa. If you are considering a stay here and have additional questions, please feel free to PM me and Iâ€™ll answer you.

Fantastic Vacation and a Great Villa. Hard to beat
Amazing! We stayed at The Retreat at Moonraker early Feb and were simply blown away with both this villa and Anguilla. As a family of 4 The retreat offered every amenity we need and the kids were fully occupied in the Games Room when they werenâ€™t splashing in the pool or soaking in the Spa. Simply heaven!! Other reviews have stated the opulence but none describe the total privacy and relaxation we achieved. The staff was unobtrusive but always on hand to sort any little problem or help with enquiries for restaurants, beaches etc. Dining in on the terrace was absolutely fantastic whilst Hibernia (5 mins) was our favorite out spot. The kids loved Shoal Bay and we loved the peace with them happy and occupied. A rental car is a must but as we had one included in our deal no problems although walking both Sile and Savannah Bays is a romantic experience not to be missed. We can not thank the managers enough for our fantastic stay. After having a tour of the whole villa we will be back again and again; bringing friends and family to savor this special place. If you want to relax away from the hustle and bustle and experience quality facilities then book our new favourite destination and this superb villa. Enjoy!

Sublime a magnificant experience
The villa is absolutely superb it is fitted to an exceptional standard with a modern but contemporary feeling. Everything about the villa exudes quality from the magnificant swimming pool/terrace area with stunning views, to the wonderful open plan lounge/dinning area/mezanine and quite stunning kitchen.
The bedroom suites provide an area for privacy with excellent en suite bathrooms.
A seperate cinema room completes a truly stunning villa.
I stayed at Moonraker villa with four friends for 10 days.i was greeted by Jim a member of staff after my ride from St Marteen which was relaxing and short.We arrived at the villa and were greeted with a cool island drink and shown to our suites. The villa is the best place ever and the design is perfection, the pool and jacuzzi were a dream and the views were visually breath taking. The island itself is stunning with many beaches close by where i enjoyed a very high standard of cuisine which was a joy to the palate. I highly do not hesitate to encourage anyone to enjoy this piece of heaven sincerely Caroline Gaw

i have found my favourite place in the world!! Was
at Moonraker in Oct, with some girlfriends, we are
all avid travellers and have stayed in some
fabulous places in the world but we all agreed,
Moonraker takes the No one prize for the most,
luxurious, elegant, private, most gorgeous place we
have ever stayed in. The Villa was immaculately
clean at all times and the services were impecable,
the spacious gourmet kitchen was perfect for
entertaining and the bedrooms all with ensuite were
divinely comfortable. Sitting pool-side is
heavenly, totally private and peaceful and the most
comfortable lounge chair's ever!!!
The beaches are stunning and swimming in the warm
turquoise waters was very theraputic, one of my
favourite beaches was about five mins away from the
Villa, we had an amazing lunch their that day,
right on the beach, must say all the restaurants in
the area were great.
I am returning to Moonraker next week with my
family and again in August for a ladies retreat and
can;t wait to get there!!
Anguilla is a special place and has to be
experienced to get it!! our stay at Moonraker Villa
was beyond our wildest dreams and feel so lucky to
have found such a special place!!
Thanks Mr Collier for creating such an awesome
space, we appreciated all the fine details that
make Moonraker, elegant, comfortable and really
fun, so excited to share the experience with my
husband and teenage girls!
We had the best holiday we've ever had at Moonraker. The house is an amazing Colonial style Villa. It has tasteful furnishings and decor and is luxurious throughout. We had many excellent meals cooked for us by a local chef in the fabulous kitchen. The children loved the huge pool and hot tub when they weren't in the Media Room watching DVDs. The Villa is located right on the beach with fantastic views of St Martins and St Barts. It is totally private and exclusive. The islandhas lots to offer and the plentiful beaches are the best we've ever seen. There are lots of wonderful restaurants and bars on Angullia. I cannot recommend the island and particularly Moonraker enough. The Villa is truly superb.
Response from Paul Moonraker - 03/01/2010
Thanks for the feedback. We designed Moonraker around our own holiday needs and those of our kids so it fanatstic to see others feel the same way about both Moonraker and Anguilla.
We hope you all visit us again.
