  • Caribbean Villas Comments:

    Solare was built in 1990 with a classic design style that includes native stonework, brick courtyards, French doors, and cathedral ceilings with hardwood floors. Another desirable feature of this home is its large lot in the very convenient and upscale neighborhood of Great Cruz Bay, overlooking the picturesque harbor with beautiful sunsets and St. Thomas in the distance. This is a quiet and reasonably private setting, yet it’s a 5 minute walk to the Westin Resort and a 5 minute drive into the restaurants and shopping at Great Cruz Bay.

    Solare was remodeled in 2012 and it now has all the amenities necessary for enjoyable island living, including; a pool, lots of sun on your semi private pool deck, a fully screened in living, dining and kitchen area, and a/c and Smart TV's in all the bedrooms.

    Solare is large enough for 10 people, with the main house having two master bedrooms and the guest house having 2 bedrooms plus a studio apartment with a pullout sofa. If you desire, we can lock off the guest cottage and the main house becomes a comfortable rental for just 2-4 people. The pricing and the floor plan easily accommodates couples and families.


  • Guest Comments:

    - A group of 8 women stayed here for a week long vacation in February. Four girls stayed in the main house and 4 in the upstairs guest house. Each room had their own bathroom which was helpful. I stayed in the guest house and both rooms had their own outdoor shower which was a nice surprise. There was plenty of space for all of us to relax in the kitchen and living room and we all enjoyed lounging on the deck. We were able to cook full meals in the kitchen with the things that were provided. We also used the washer and dryers after a day at the beach so we could have fresh towels the next day. The location was great and easy to get to from the town and beaches. You do need to rent a car or use taxis if you would like to go into downtown or to the beaches. Something that may be helpful to note to the owners- wifi is not available in the guest house unless you stand at the very corner of the deck. Since wifi is how most of us were communicating with home etc it would have been nice not to have to go to the main house to check an email. Overall, a great, spacious villa with all the basic things you would need. Perfect for a group!
    - Had 10 Adults stay in Villa Solare for 5 nights, and four of us stayed for an additional 4 nights. All in all a great experience, the house is well suited for a large or small group. Kitchen is great, bedrooms are air conditioned, and the deck views are very nice. 7-8 minute drive to Cruz Bay. Nothing is too far on the island from here, it is a good location to launch from for your day trips. St. John Market is on the way to town and much closer, which we found is much cheaper than the other markets closer to town. Very quiet, good for walks. This place is just as advertised. Thanks again!
