We are four couples looking to make our first trip to Anguilla. We have been traveling annually to St John for about the last 10 years and are finally convinced that we need to try other areas outside of the VI. I am pushing for Anguilla given what I know about the island. I know it is different than St John in that it is much flatter and relatively arid and not as "Americanized" as St. John, but we all like beautiful beaches and a quieter, laid back island and it sounds like Anguilla fits the bill.
We want to rent a house and would like to keep it at or below $8k for the week. Travel is in January, 2015. Need four bedrooms, pool and preferably a great view. We are willing to drive to beaches. We also enjoy a good happy hour at local establishments. I understand the food is a major draw for the island, but while we all appreciate good food, none of us are foodies.
Thanks for any help
