have just spent a short break celebrating Songkran at Villa Soleil with friends and although the weather was not great everything about the villa was perfect and the management staff were really helpful.......will definitely stay again in the future.

We stayed in Villa Soleil for one month during February and had a fantastic time. The villa is great for families, very quiet location with complete privacy and within easy reach of the wonderful beaches, restaurants and shops. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and more for cooking but we did eat out most of the time. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool, it was so nice to walk out from the terrace, the pictures advertised really dont do it justice. Nicky & Lynn from the management company looked after us offering advice on places to go and things to do and were always available.
We shall be returning later this year we liked it so much.

Please note this property is currently offered for sale by the owner, thus it lacks the attention or investment of a long term committed landlord, understandably. Essentially cosmetically all looks well, good design and fit out. However, if you are considering a booking it would be wise to know that this villa is serviced by a 2000ltr water tank. We are a family of four, 2 adults, 2 under 7yr olds and depleted the tank within 4 days by just having a shower each in the evening plus flushing the wc as and when. The shortage manifested itself by me being showered in slurry after just finishing showering the kids. The local management team (English) resolved the shortage by an urgent resupply, however, the owner emailed me that evening to advise firstly we had exceeded the usual use for a week and secondly perhaps consider reducing our consumption. (A refill costs between 250-400bht, around £5-£8.00. So in the scheme of a booking, not at all expensive). Bear in mind this is advertised as a 6 birth villa with 3 bathrooms, do not book if you feel it necessary to shower frequently whilst staying in a tropical climate. Also worth noting, the basins to each bathroom are only fed by a cold feed, thus if you wish to have have hot / warm water you will need to boil a kettle. The owner believes this is typical on the island and I agree for properties not featured as Luxury. All previous villas we have stayed in had a local water heater servicing the basins. So if you want warm water, you will need to shower, but then you are penalised by the woefully lacking capacity tank.
Dont let any of this put you off booking as everything else is as advertised, but I believe this is essential information to consider prior to booking. I did get an apology for the inconvenienced experienced from the owner but the following morning. If cost of re supply is a factor, please consider offering the guests that option.

A lovely villa close to the airport and good restaurants. Nicky, the villa manager, was extremely helpful and attended to any needs immediately. She gave advice on transport, restaurants and anything else on the island. Our family of 6 stayed a month comfortably in the villa and felt very relaxed. Having the villa serviced several times a week was great and the laundry service down the road took care of all the washing. Everyone had a relaxed time. We would happily return for another chilled out vacation!

we stayed 2 times at this villa, and enjoyed it. Location is perfect (although you do need a car) - very quiet, private, close to beaches and restaurants. Karen and Andy are very helpful. Excellent house for family. We have 2 little boys and it is great to have their own bedrooms, TV with DVD player and of course the private swimming pool. We have rented houses all over the world, and this one is definitely to be recommended.

The property was stunning and fully equiped with every thing you need. The villa was cleaned every 3 days with fresh linen and clean beach and bath towels. Pool was mantained every day. Any minor problems which we incurred you just ring the office and the maintanence men are straight there. Overall the villa was excellent and would definitely go back there or use villas escape to book our next holiday as we would never consider going into a hotel after staying in this villa.

I would like to thank Karen, Andy and Chloe and all their Thai staff for their warm hospitality, the excellent service and the idyllic accommodation.
You gave us the holiday of a lifetime. Speaking for myself, I very much doubt that the experience will ever be exceeded.
As you know this was a special occasion, being Maureens and my 20th wedding anniversary. You gave us the opportunity to reinvigorate the bonds that tie us together as a family.
The children thoroughly enjoyed experiencing another culture and Maureen and I had the chance to relax - really for the first time in 20 years. To do so for almost 2 weeks was an unimaginable luxury. Yet the unimaginable happened.

The stay was wonderful, villa was awesome, pool rocked and had a very great time.
I would like to highlight on the security aspect of the villa. Since i observed someone peeping through the wall between parking area and pool, i thought a gate before the parking area or a watchman would help to better the privacy.
