17- room Inn on One of The Caribbean’s Priciest Islands Offers

Layoff Long Stays from $825 Per Month, Less than Most Big City Rents  


Anguilla, B.W.I – October 1, 2008 – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in August 84,000 jobs were lost and, no surprise, the unemployment rate rose+.  More recent headline news has those in the finance world unemployed, or very close to it.  In lieu of these frightening statistics, the Arawak Beach Inn on Anguilla offers the newly idle an opportunity to relax, unwind and regroup without blowing through their severance pay with “Layoff Longstays,” starting at just $825 per month (less than $30 per night and significantly lower than most monthly rents!). 


Made up of 17 pastel-painted, oceanfront cottages dotting the shores of Anguilla’s Island Harbour Beach, the Arawak Beach Inn is a bona fide Caribbean home away from home and the innkeeper, Maria, is the perfect hostess, offering tips on the island’s hotspots and thoughts on life. 


Throughout the month, guests can participate in activities such as exploring the island, snorkeling, fishing and more. Or, they can simply relax by the pool or on the beach and catch up on some long overdue reading or let their cares fade away as they enjoy a tropical cocktail from the bar (it runs on the honor system!).  Those who have spent years on The Street and The Floor will notice their cares melt away.  And, when the time comes to check job postings, high-speed Internet access is available in-room, as well as Wi-Fi access in the restaurant and pool area.  Looking for a new job has never been so enjoyable! 


Layoff Long Stays start at just $825* per room, per month, based on double occupancy and including oceanfront accommodations.  Deluxe villas offer complete kitchens, king-size beds, color TVs and, of course, spectacular views of the ocean.  Cottages with a bedroom and separate living room and kitchen area are available for an extra charge, based on availability.

 “This intimate gem sings with island warmth and color,” says Fodor’s.  Arawak Beach Inn features a pool, the Arawak Beach Inn Café, home of the Caribbean’s best pizza, a bar, and oceanfront accommodations boasting a balcony or deck with spectacular views, a king- or queen-size bed, a refrigerator, and a private bath.  Most Oceanfront Deluxe rooms also include cable TV and four-poster beds.  But the best part may be Maria Hawkins, Arawak’s exuberant innkeeper extraordinaire who invites guest into the kitchen to whip up their favorite meal.  Maria makes guests feel at home while in paradise.


The pace at Arawak is entirely up to guests. Lazing around the pool and enjoying the Arawak Beach Inn Café’s delicious Caribbean fare and International cuisine is a popular “activity.”  For more adventurous guests, inn staff members will arrange boat excursions, sailing trips, tennis, and diving for an extra fee.  Deserted beaches are a short stroll away for snorkeling and letting sand seep through toes.
