The Kircher Family
The Kircher family first fell in love with Anguilla in 1987 on their first visit to Anguilla. In 2005, after looking for a second home on the island, they decided to make Anguilla an even bigger part of their life when they purchased Frangipani Beach Resort, a boutique resort on Meads Bay. Beyond owning and operating the resort, the Kircher family is very involved with the island at large. They’ve worked with Pack for a Purpose to bring in supplies to support youth development, and support a variety of local initiatives and activities including sailboat racing and musical talent events.
