Perfect for a relaxing holiday “We had the pleasure of staying in Solaria I in May 2010. This extremely spacious house, situated right on the white sandy beach, with uninterrupted views of the barrier reef, proved to be the perfect home for a relaxing holiday. The house has high ceilings and a grand spiral staircase giving a sense of great space. The bedrooms are very comfortable with lovely bed linen and the two master suites are huge. The lounge is on the second floor and commands a magical view out to sea and is a great place to relax.  This house is not for those who want the trappings of the high tech world but wonderful if you want to leave all that behind and escape your busy lives in a stunning setting. It is very peaceful and a joy for me was sitting on the balcony in the breeze looking out to sea where you can observe the pelicans, frigate birds and boats passing by.  Enjoy!” Chris, Cambridge, England

Incredible villa with stunning views “Peaceful paradise with plenty to do, even if lying on the beach is not your thing. Incredible villa, beautifully designed with stunning views. Home away from home with first class service – no request too big or small. Can’t wait to go back.” Ruth, Cheltenham, England

A little slice of paradise! “We stayed at Solaria for a week in March 2009 and had the most amazing time! The villa is really spacious and luxurious and is very conveniently located right on the beach, next to a lovely restaurant and within easy reach of a dive shop – very handy for snorkeling and diving trips! Rachael looked after us incredibly well, organising catamaran trips, fishing trips and her local knowledge of just about everything on the island (particularly anything food related!) is unsurpassed. One of my favourite things about Solaria was the enormous bedroom and being able to wake up every day to views of the spectacular sea. There is also a fantastic balcony, ideal for aperitifs and watching the world go by… All in all, it was a little slice of paradise! Thank you for looking after us, Rachael – we will come again!”. Francesca, Milan, Italy

Luxury right next to the sea “Solaria has breath-taking views, is perfectly located for a relaxing getaway in paradise and is right next to an amazing coral reef! I loved the wooden interior giving the place a natural feel, in tune with its surroundings, and the pool was the perfect way to cool off at the end of the day. I’d definitely go back and would recommend Solaria to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing beach holiday who wants a bit of luxury right next to the sea”. Barnaby, Cornwall, England
