March 2007 trip for 6-8 friends - want to rent a villa

My first time to Anguilla. Sounds lovely. Planning a get-away for 6-8 friends. Relaxing, eating, beach time in a picturesque villa near the beach/bay. Any recommendations? Thanks!

How many bedrooms do you need? We stayed at Three Dolphins last year and it was beautiful. The beach was very tiny and the water had sea urchins ( might be seasonal, I don't know ). The villa was very spacious and had 5 bedrooms and a great pool area. If you rent a car, you can drive yourself to the really great beaches, like Shoal Bay East. Anguilla is a great place!!!!

Thanks! Has anyone ever heard of the Spy Glass Villa near Sandy Ground? Looks nice as well and less expensive than Beach Court (for winter rates).

Spyglass is beautiful -- sits up high with views of Sandy Ground (the port) and St. Martin. No beach anywhere nearby, although Anguilla is small. There are some large villas very close to Shoal Bay East and Zenaida is close to Sandy Hill. Have you done a search at www.mycaribbean.com? You can specify the number of bedrooms before your search -- it will probably turn up some reasonable alternatives.

Mary D - if you read this, are you familiar with Zenaida? I am checking it out for a 2008 trip and would love any info you might have. Thanks - Donna

Thanks for the suggestions. We are booked at the SpyGlass Villa for 5 nights. We plan on renting a car for getting around to the various beaches and the grocery. Does anyone recommend a fun beach pub for lunch/afternoon drinks. We'd love a friendly bartender and a fun atmosphere.

Also, we may want to do some light snorkeling at Shoal Bay east. Decent?
