Beerman--yes, I have more photos. Not sure I have any uploaded at the moment yet from this trip. Here is a photoshow from a couple of years ago, mostly inside..

And yes, that is ST. Barts. Depending on how clear it is, you can see St. Barts, Saba, and Statia, from Beachside. Anguilla is closer, but you can't see Anguilla from Beachside. Anguilla is the closest large island, but it is closest to the french side and we stayed on the Dutch side this time.

probably Anguilla, much closer then St.Barts.

Carol, I am in no way comparing the 2 islands. The only thing in common is warm weather. Rick, no, DR is not safe to stroll around. We wanted a special dinner in town for our anniversary and this place was highly recommended. The resort sent us out with a licensed travel escort, very interesting. we never felt threatened, the guide was wonderful. we had a 4 lb lobster dinner, 5 course with wine and dessert for $50 for both. DR is very inexpensive

Picture down the beach, not a good one, as it's too 'scrunched', but you get the idea..

Working off phone so no pics, but my vote is Anguilla. A lot depends if you looking slower or more happening getaway. So my recommendation - 3 days in SXM and 7 days in AXA.

Take a look at Nesbit Plantation in Nevis.
Nice beach, restaurant, and property.
Very gracious hosts.

We have just one week so we're trying to keep travel itinerary convenient. Tom if we stay on sxm we'll definitely do a day trip to Anguilla. Btw where did you stay on Anguilla? IWIWSE Nesbit Plantation looks very nice!

Carol Beachside villas and the beach look great, just cant visualize that airport activity from the beach?

Beerman--not sure I understand your question. You hear the big planes come in in the afternoon, yes. In general, there are about 10 big planes per day, scattered over several hours, and several smaller ones. There is noise for about 30 seconds, then nothing for a half hour or more. As far as SEEING the planes, from the beach in front of the villas, you basically don't see the planes until after they take off over the hill, unless you are at the pool, where you can see them taxi-ing and taking off. I don't know, I love seeing the planes. You might not. As Raspy said in the other thread though, as far as for Heineken week, if you want to go that week, everywhere good may already be sold out.

Tom, I remember reading your report, awesome! If you had just one day on Anguilla what would your day include?
