Carimar Beach Club began as the birthday wish of author Francine Jacobs, who was so impressed by the magnificence of Meads Bay, she dreamed of having a place to stay there. That was in May 1982. For the next several years, she and her husband, Dr. Jerry Jacobs, teamed up with Dr. Donald Corwin and builder, McEllis Brooks, to make that dream a reality.
Construction began in October 1984, and the property now known as Carimar Beach Club opened in December 1985 as one of the first resorts on the island and the first condominium residence on Anguilla. With 24 spacious villas, Carimar was conceived as a property that would be a vacation home for its owners as well as a boutique resort for Caribbean vacationers - a unique concept on Anguilla.
Thirty-six years later, Carimar Beach Club is consistently rated at the top of major hotel and resort reviews, including Tripadvisor. Our gracious staff, under the direction of our resident general manager Rolf Masshardt, has provided guests, many of whom return year-after-year - a “home away from home” on the idyllic island of Anguilla.
