The red pin (below) is Island Harbour. Zoom in on the Anguilla map for more detail.
Right in the heart of Island Harbour's village you will find the most quaint, picturesque fishing village.
Small, colorful fishing boats dot the harbour's clear, turquoise waters... Fishermen bring in their catch while others sit on the dock preparing their bait or gutting their fish.
Just along the harbour's shores there are many Anguilla hotels, inns and yummy places to eat. From the best baguettes and croissants to perfect pizzas and the better than any desert ever, banoffee pie!
Mmm! Just thinking about all of this delicious food makes my mouth water.
While there aren't any Anguilla villa rentals in the harbour, admist all of the action, there are many in the surrounding area.
Size: 2-3 bedrooms
Location: Located on sea cliffs.
Description: Where Island Harbour ends and Shoal Bay begins, you will find a gem of a villa... Anguilla JEMS.
JEMS is perched up in rocky cliffs gazing out to sea. The upper level of the villa has two bedrooms with walk outs to the swimming pool. On the villa's lower level, there is a separate one-bedroom suite.
This Anguilla villa rental also has a garden area and is a short walk to Le Bon Pain. Yum!

Size: 2 bedrooms
Location: Located on the sea rocks between Shoal Bay and Island Harbour, but not on the sea.
Description: Comfortable and well-appointed, Little Palm is located in a community located between Shoal Bay and Island Harbour.
The fair-sized pool makes up for the lack of ocean-front. Despite that lack of ocean-front, it is only a short drive to the beach, and there are endless views from the villa's outdoor living spaces.
There is a full kitchen, living space and two bedrooms.

Size: 1 bedroom
Location: Inland of Island Harbour in Welches.
Description: A charming cottage, Country Cottage is clean, well-kept and quite comfortable. The villa captures the natural breezes that blow through the Eastern end of the island. The high ceilings help keep the villa cool, too.
The bedroom has air conditioning (in case you like the ultra-cool feel). The bed is a king-size and has a small patio that looks out to the countryside.
This villa is just a short drive from one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, Shoal Bay, and Island Harbour.

Size: 4 bedrooms
Location: At the end of Island Harbour's ridge road, facing Captain's Bay.
Description: Just off of Harbour Ridge, you will find Soleil Villa. The villa looks out over Captain's Bay in the distance, one of the island's wildest and most remote beaches. Beyond Captain's Bay, you can see also see Anguilla's cay, Scrub Island.
Each bedroom has their own private outdoor area and bathroom.
There is plenty of indoor and outdoor dining (there is a formal outdoor dining space, BBQ and wet bar!) and living space, as well as a large pool that just appears to "drop off" ion the sea. Beautiful. The sun chaises and outdoor furniture is particularly appealing, with its orange and rattan. You will never feel crowded here.
The villa is large and with a Greek style. It impresses visually in terms of its size and grandeur!

Size: 4 bedrooms
Location: On the Sea Rocks just east of Island Harbour. Views out to sea.
Description: This three bedroom, high-end villa defines the term "posh."
You know you will be living in luxury when the first thing you notice upon looking at the villa, is that it is made entirely of polished Anguilla stone.
Nope, I'm not kidding... The entire exterior is made of fine Anguilla rock.
After that, every other luxurious feature falls quickly into place. Mindblowing views out to sea, superb verandas, a negative edge pool, a tennis court, a media room, a fire place, and even a two car garage.
But what makes this villa truly special are the details. The veranda is not just any veranda. It is a veranda made from "tumble marble" tiles. The bathroom floors? Italian marble tiles. The bedroom furniture? Mahogany only, with a flat screen TV in every room.
There are many services that come included at this villa in Anguilla. These services include daily maid service, linen change, pool service and, my favorite, continental breakfast!
Anyone will tell you that Desert Rose is one of the most beautifully adorned Anguilla villa rentals. The interior, the exterior... This luxury Anguilla villa will take your breath away.
