About Chelle

I have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean. From having a holiday home in Antigua to sailing down the Grenadines to Looking for a place for a recording studio; I first happened on Anguilla in 1976 while on a recce round the islands. Air Studios, was eventually built on Montserrat, but my heart was always on Anguilla. The island and her people are really truly beautiful and unique. After living in London, which I also still love, I finally moved here permanently in 2000 for the sea and the sunshine and the wonderful friendships I have made.

Chelle purchased this villa in 2000

Why Chelle chose Anguilla

I have been coming to Anguilla since 1977. When I decided to buy a villa, location was paramount. I wanted somewhere near the West End and all the facilities that the West End of the Island enjoys with easy and quick access to the Valley and the Airport and the Ferry to St. Martin. This location could not be better placed to enjoy all the facilities of Anguilla without feeling you are having to drive to get anywhere.

What makes this villa unique

Three Dolphins really is on the sea, ..we access the beach from a gate right on the property., with the beach directly in front of the Villa. You really can watch your family/friends snorkel from either the wooden deck over looking the beach or your bedroom balcony or the cabana swinging bamboo bed.

A five minute drive to the Golf Course and two minute drive to the Tennis Academy makes both of those facilities quick and easy from Three Dolphins.

The wonderful Three Dolphin housekeepers, Kathleen and Jocelyn, have been here from the beginning, even before me, and provide great service and will as one guest wrote about them, 'You made our special vacation even more wonderful'.

We are perfectly located for all the World Renowned restaurants and amenities of The West End and Sandy Ground, the Airport and Ferry Terminal and The Valley. and yet not far from Shoal Bay and the East End and Island Harbour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented Three Dolphins for a week with some friends and our little toddler. The house could not have been nicer, very comfortable, all bedrooms of equal quality and a magical view. It is also very well located as everywhere is 10-15 minutes from the house. Lastly staff and owner are charming!

Dream Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 5 adults and 4 children vacationed experienced a vacation of a lifetime at Three Dolphins Villa. Upon arrival at the villa, we were greeted by the lovely housekeepers and given a tour of the property. Standing in the foyer of the villa is surreal as the views of the ocean and St. Martin take your breath away. Pictures on VRBO never did this view justice...it was amazing.

The home has everything you need for a luxury vacation. We ate several meals on property, using the outdoor grill and sitting outside on the lighted patio. Our kids preferred dinner at home as they looked forward to swimming in the pool and listening to music from the stereo system. My husband and I ventured out to the loungers on the small deck over the cliff every evening to wind down after a busy day of beach adventures. Each morning i would enjoy my coffee on the lanai or lay on the swinging bed. It was pure relaxation.

Our family particularly loved our conversations with the housekeepers. Such lovely people who had great stories to share. They did a wonderful job cleaning the house every day, doing our laundry and just providing us help with anything we needed. The villa owner, Chelle, was very accommodating and patient answering my plethora of emails. It is nice to have a villa owner who is responsive and cares about her guests.

We hope that we can return to this fabulous villa in the future but if not, we certainly have amazing memories!

A fantastic find

  • 5 of 5

We visited Three Dolphins last month, and brought our two young sons, my Parents, and some good friends.

The house was beautiful. When the windows and doors of the house are opened, entire walls seem to disappear, revealing a stunning view. The small beach was perfect for my little guys (ages 4 and 2).

The bedrooms and bathrooms were big and pretty, each with a spectacular view. The separate guest house was super convenient.

The best part of the house, by far, were the two women who showed up daily to clean, and straighten and generally care for the hosue and its guests.

one down side was that our week was a bit windy, but most of our party loved the "stiff breeze." The island itself is great -- probably going to be overdeveloped at some point, but now, it is rough, with goats in the streets. Easy access from these rough streets to polished resorts. we loved Blanchards for dinner and East Shoal Bay for beaching.

Great Island-perfect property to match the landscape

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 just returned from Three Dolphins Villa in Anguilla. First let me say the property was perfect for our large family. The indoor/ outdoor living, fits the island vibe totally. We spent our time outdoors more than in, and always felt comfortable, and relaxed, both on the property and off. My wife loved all of the unique amazing beaches, all a very close drive to the house. We got a kick out of our Rooster(real live ) alarm clock every morning. Jocelynn and her assistant were very sweet, had a lot of info about the island, and were very professional in their work. The food in Anguilla was exceptional everywhere we went, and we ate out all over the island. The beaches were breathtaking, but I must say the people of the island were just as amazing, making us feel at home the entire stay. A return trip is definitely on our radar. Thank you Chelle and company, for sharing this home with us.

Sincerely,

The Smith gang

Great Villa for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We did some extensive research trying to find a reasonably priced Villa with the location and amenities to fit for our family vacation. Having some experience in other rentals where the pictures didn't really "tell the story" it was not an easy decision given the investment. Well, I can say now that Three Dolphins was great and lived up to every expectation we had. The villa is very well maintained and has a ton of character from all of the custom woodwork. Chelle was very easy to communicate with and got back to me promptly as I peppered her with questions (our first time to Anguilla). The location is very central and getting to any of the big beaches was easy, although we found ourselves very comfortable just lounging around the pool enjoying the ocean. After visiting some of the beaches and restaurants on the North side of Anguilla where the air seemed to be perfectly still at night, we all decided that we preferred the constant breezes we had from Three Dolphins more southern facing location. We really felt like we were at "home" within a day or so. Kathleen and Joyce were very pleasant housekeepers and they were there each morning for several hours. Chelle helped us find a local chef (Andy) to do breakfast for our group very reasonably so no one had to stress out about any meals. We also asked him to do one dinner for us with local flavors and it was very relaxing to be in our own place for the evening since we had a couple small children with us! We do plan to visit again, and again! Enjoy

I'm in love ......with three Dolphins

  • 5 of 5

I thought I would never get there. My first trip was planned in August but hurricane Erica changed that. We would have to wait until November. It was definitely worth the wait. The house is beautiful,! The views are awesome, breathtaking and hypnotic. The owners and the caretakers were very friendly and accommodating. I felt as if I was visiting my family. Chef Andy made sure we had good food and good fun. The caretakers Kathleen and Joycelyn made sure the house was comfortable and spotless. The house is filled with beautiful art work done by the owner. I could feel the heart and soul that was put into this villa.

Outside of the GREAT hospitality, the island is low key and relaxing. We spent our days exploring the different beaches on the island including the private beach at the house. We were not disappoint. When We were not exploring the island, we were enjoying the pool, admiring the beautiful views and relaxing to the sounds of the ocean.

It was an experience that I will never forget.

I'm really missing my new love........

Until we meet again Three Dolphins....

Sincerely

Vodkia

Lockrum Estates is a perfect area because you are not too far from the West End with its fabulous hotels and world renowned restaurants....but equally you are close to The Valley and all the towns amenities....close by the ferry terminal 5 minutes one way and the airport is five minutes the other way! Then you are not that far from Shoal Bay and the East End of the Island as well!
