We arrived at Sol Y Sombra with 6 adults and 6 kids, and we were all perfectly content! The location is superb - we enjoyed the fabulous beach down our shady steps, and we were so grateful for the wonderful toys we had at our disposal. Each family had a separate "home," but we loved being together in the main house. We ate every dinner on the porch with our incredible view. We loved the convenience of the island and her amenities. We LOVED the ease of transportation from Tortola, too. The mosquitoes were a bit of trouble especially with the kids. Marcia was lovely and accommodating. The large kitchen was ideal for our own chef who made delicious meals every night. We especially loved Rosy's market, and were so thankful for the pre-stocking of our groceries. We visited the Baths, but enjoyed our own version right off the beach! Visited the Copper Mine and drove the whole island which was gorgeous. We had a terrific week. Thanks!
Our stay at Sol y Sombra exceeded our expectations in every sense of the word. The amenities were fresh and clean. The housekeeper (Marcia) was so friendly and helpful every day. The kitchen was amazing and allowed us to cook several amazing meals. Aside from a few issues with the local mosquitoes, we couldn't have been happier with the trip.
Sol y Sombra was a dream come true . . . the villa more than met our expectations. The information and description of the villa and property was very accurate, from both Dominic and the on-line description. All of our contacts were very helpful, professional and genuinely friendly from start to finish. It was the perfect vacation!
Everything was perfect from the house to the view to the service!!
After much research and looking at photos of our selected villa, Sol Y Sombra for months before traveling I thought I had a good idea of what to expect on our family vacation. We arrived by boat and were greeted at the dock right on schedule. As we approached our villa, the intriguing driveway in itself was so beautiful. We were escorted through the first
gated entry and immediately embraced by the charm and beauty this villa has to offer. Words cannot describe the first time we saw the breathtaking view as we came down the
stairs into the main living area. We finished our tour and became acquanted with our home away from home, and this was the beginning of a vacation experience beyond every expectation. The one or two minor bumps that any family of 7 could have while traveling paled in comparison to the beauty, relaxation, and fun we had during our stay at Sol Y Sombra!
