5/5 Excellent

Really great location, accommodation with quiet beach
The property was as described and very good, Nathan was an excellent host and the house keeping ladies were great. Turtles seen in the bay most days, complimentary water taxi available to the Italian and French restaurants at the boatyard, plus English & Falmouth harbours only a 5 minute drive away. Overall a really super vacation.

5/5 Excellent

A week in paradise
We loved our stay in English Harbour. Soleil is a cozy place to stay only a short distance from the beach. Nathan was great getting us settled and had lots of information for us. We were there to relax and be low key so this really worked for us. The beach is amazing and we did a snorkel adventure with Scooter Snorkeling right from our beach. Amazing all the things we saw, turtles, barracuda, small ship wreak, huge assortment of fish and the pillars or Hercules. We ventured out to a few other beaches during our stay and found the entire island to be wonderful. We grocery shopped and cooked most of our own meals as it was the off season and most everything was closed. We did enjoy eating at the Seabreeze cafe for breakfast a few days and lunch on occasion. This place is right at the base of Shirley Heights, which is a must do for their Sunday Night party. We walked daily and ventured up a few of the hiking trails to Shirley Heights. We loved the hot tub and the grill, great to come back and relax after the beach. We definitely recommend staying here in this property.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely spot
We enjoyed our stay in Moondance Soleil very much. Fabulous views, beautifully furnished and spectacular location. You walk down to the edge of the property and a beautiful swimming and snorkelling beach is right there. Nathan and Claire who checked us in were very helpful and Fiona went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. The hot water was a bit iffy, but it didn't spoil our stay. We'd go back again and hope to. We rented a car and I think it would be difficult to manage without one. But it's a short drive to English Harbour and all its restaurants and amenities. Walking distance along the beach is a high end resort called The Inn. We splashed out and had dinner there our last night and it was amazing. You have to call and see if they have room. Overall, we were very happy and recommend Soleil.

5/5 Excellent

Charming cottage with an unbelievable view
From arrival to departure this visit at Soleil was more than what I expected. Nathan and Clare greeted you upon your arrival and the refrigerator was stocked with the basics so you did not have to immediately go purchase food. The cottage was spacious, although the best part was the porch with the magnificent view. There are stone steps to climb going up to the cottage but they were lit at night. I recommend Soleil for anyone desiring a great view, nice beach and tranquility.

5/5 Excellent

Superb location both Kai and Soleil well appointed.
Beautiful cottages, very comfortable, very good standard of linen and towels etc. 30 seconds to the beach and recliners and cool boxes provided. Excellent Standard of Cleanliness. Water taxi from the beach hit and miss but doesn’t detract from the location. Really good snorkelling from the waters edge with turtles and fish plentiful. Daily beach bar to watch the sunset from, all in all well worth a visit
