Soleil, Tobago Vacation Rental
Soleil is a truly impressive 5-bedroom Tobago vacation rental villa. Regally located on a hillside in beautiful Arnos Vale, the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea practically on the doorstep, this magical “house of a thousand windows” has a subtly soothing Japanese ambience and a decor perfectly suited to the environment.
Step out into the open courtyard that takes centre stage in this stunning villa. You will feel as if you are outside. With no roof or ceiling, the courtyard is an architectural showcase for daytime sun and wonderful night skies unpolluted by city lights.
Admire the stunning views from your bedroom lounge. Feel your worries fade away as your senses come alive to the sea’s refreshing breeze, the smell of the salt air and the sun sparkling on the water below. French for ‘sun’, Soleil is aptly named. The villa design makes the most of the stunning location; an elemental adventure waiting to happen!
Whether relaxing beside the pool or out exploring Tobago, you can be as lazy or as adventurous as you wish when staying at Soleil. Please use the menus on the left to read about the luxurious accommodation offered at our beautiful vacation villa and to see what Soleil and Tobago offer.
The main structure of Soleil villa surrounds an open courtyard. The foyer, kitchen, dining and living areas flow seamlessly into one another, making entertaining more fluid. The ‘nooks’ that make up the living area allow guests to withdraw from ‘court’; to soak up the many seascapes individually framed by the windows lining every wall.
The courtyard and all rooms on this main level are thoughtfully and impeccably furnished for large get-togethers, while providing cosy corners conducive to solitary retreat.
The large and beautifully designed modern kitchen is equipped with enough stainless steel gadgets and appliances to satisfy the most discerning, enhanced by a traditional feel invoked by the pots hanging from the ceiling. If this kitchen doesn’t appeal to the chef in you, then Soleil's gem of a housekeeper, Camille, will be happy to whip up 'all kind of' local food.
The dining area is graced with a handsome mahogany table that Camille takes great pride in setting. Up to 12 people have loads of elbow room.
The foyer flows into a mini-cocktail lounge, replete with bar-stools and all necessary accoutrements. The wooden Adirondack chairs in the adjacent courtyard are a popular spot for the ladies to recline with their refreshments. Tasteful comfort and simplicity: a perfect blending of form and function, with none of the excess and exaggeration too often mistaken for elegance.
On the other side of the kitchen is a breakfast bar counter and adjacent computer counter. Soleil’s laptop computer is available for guest use, although Wi-Fi is provided for guests who would bring their own laptop.
The accommodation at Soleil consists of four bedroom suites in the main villa and a separate and optional fifth bedroom below the house. The master suite is located discretely off the main living areas on the main lower floor. The other three bedrooms, which are just as nice, are situated on the upper level.
The fifth bedroom is actually a self-contained apartment with living room, full kitchen and bathroom, plus sleeping alcove with queen-size bed. It can be optionally rented for surplus guests or, rented on its own - at the last minute and only if there is no one staying upstairs.
The bedrooms are all air-conditioned. However, most guests are likely to be content with the ceiling-fan and the cool sea breezes. Direct-dial telephone and safety deposit box are standard, but the bedroom feature that attracts most attention and comment are the huge multi-coloured tiled shower rooms -- 'stall' would be a misnomer -- and the lookout lounging rooms attached to each suite.
The living room opens onto the wooden pool deck with lily pond, barbeque area and the villa's two swimming pools. A footpath leads from the lower pool deck to the sea. The covered jetty on the sea shore is already a popular wedding spot; a wonderfully private and romantic place to exchange vows, with just a few close friends and family as witnesses, and the sea as accompaniment.
The utmost thought and care goes into every aspect of making guests of Soleil feel special. The accommodation, facilities and furnishings offer the very highest standards of comfort and luxury, while retaining a real 'at home' ambience.
Your Tobago experience begins at the airport, where one of Soleil's trusty drivers will be waiting to take you to the villa.
Arriving at the villa, one of Soleil's managers, either Gillian or Helen (or probably both), will be there to greet you and provide a tour of the accommodation, facilities, and thereafter be on call for the duration of your visit to ensure that every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly.
All you need to do is to unpack. Feel pampered! If staying for more than 4 days, you will have a welcome basket & meal to look forward to.
Three days a week, Soleil's housekeeper will come in to clean and ensure that your stay is pleasurable. If you would like someone with intimate knowledge of the island to drive you around, that can easily be organized! If you would prefer to hire a car, that too can be arranged for you.
Soleil's managers will also be more than happy to organize nature or sightseeing tours and any activities you are interested in; all with trusted local guides. Horse riding, deep-sea diving, an all-inclusive day of snorkeling and sailing aboard Island Girl, or a day-trip to Trinidad with a local birding expert are all activities worth considering. Not to mention a few more seasonal ones like sport-fishing, surfing at Mount Irvine, or taking part in an SOS (Save our Seaturtles) Nesting or Hatchling Watch.
For the golf enthusiasts in your party, they can also advise with regards to the golf packages available at Tobago's two award-winning 18-hole championship golf courses. The course at Mt. Irvine is only a 5-10 minute drive from the villa.
