  • Between excellent and admirable

    "There is much to enjoy at Serenata, and much to admire. Fist the location: above Island Harbour in a completely serene site. No other view from the terrace than trees in the garden and the native vegetation beyond that, then the ocean: no other noise than the distant rollers on the reef, the rustling palms in the (sometimes strong) wind, and the turtle doves that wake you in the morning.The neighbours to the west were never there during our month's stay, and those to the east were scrupulously quiet. You will grow to admire the layout of Serenata, the well-kept colourful garden that Wilson keeps watered. I particularly recommend a good look at the dry stone wall that encloses it, artfully done in the local manner of two-tone stones . One of the best in the island. The inside is quite spare, almost ascetic in its immaculate white, built to catch and keep the light. The floor of the great room is white tile, and some original art (not too much; you will long remember the depiction of a children's model sailboat race by Wemes that greets you on the left-hand wall; see if you can find the original of the houses that she grouped above the children) takes advantage of those white walls. The living room furniture is rattan, comfortable and complete, down to the stand alone glass top dining table. One small table and a desk, three armchairs: no other furniture. Complete, but nothing superfluous. Then there is the gallery/verandah. 60 feet of arches open to the North and to the inspection of birds in search of your breakfast crumbs (feeding them is probably a mistake, and expose all that lovely white paint to regrettable accidents). The floor is the same tile as the inside: extreme caution after rain: it becomes very slippery, and running toddlers risk serious injury. But you will not find a more serene spot than one of the four lounge chairs. The property's maintenance is excellent. There is not one flaw in the vast amount of screening necessary for the enormous amount of windows (bay windows and windows along the entire gallery). There was not a mark on any of the walls, any of the off-white counters. For places like Serenata, my wife and I are thankful. The owners (Maddeline and Rocco are a phone call away (even in the middle of the night when, left in a completely dark island by a power interruption, we had to ask where the flashlight was), and prompt to answer questions and fix problems. They were careful not to intrude,, but very helpful nonetheless."

  • Great Villa for the family!

    "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"

  • wonderful!

    "My husband and I have been going to Anguilla since 1992 and started taking our son and his family in 2009 - we have stayed at all the best hotels on the Island and our family agreed that our stay at Sandcastle Pointe was the best family stay we have had - the villa is lovely with a great view - Rita made us all (aged 68-3) feel at home - she was getting big hugs from our 3 year old grand daughter by the time we left - she is a wonderful cook - made us breakfast every day & a couple of dinners - accommodated various allergies and quirks - we are already planning our return"

  • If I could give 100 stars I would!

    "I write this review back in reality, missing the dream that is Sandcastle Villa so very much. This house is everything and more. Beautifully decorated, sparkling clean (and kept this way every day!), located on as close to a private beach as you could ever hope to have, full of all the comforts of a fine resort- this is the ultimate dream getaway. The owners of the home were lovely to work with- they are prompt in responding with any details or specifics you may need, and went out of their way to ensure we were completely taken care of while we rented their home. Mercedes and Maria, the two wonderful ladies who keep the villa spotless and the guests so happy, are two of the most wonderful, hardworking, and kind people I've ever had the privileged to know. If you are considering hiring a private chef- look no further than Mercedes! She is immensely talented in the kitchen and kept us overly full and completely impressed with her fine island cooking. They made our stay even better with their impeccable service and lovely dispositions. I could go on and on, but instead I will just say this: if you are looking for a villa to rent on the island, RENT THIS ONE! If you are thinking of booking at one of Anguilla's lovely hotels or resorts (as we have done many times in the past) DON'T! RENT THIS VILLA! You will not be sorry. There's absolutely nothing else like it. We will most certainly be back just as soon as possible."
