Solitaire is a serene waterfront villa, located on a two acre estate of beautifully landscaped gardens with sweeping views of Westerhall Bay and the mountains beyond. This private retreat on the island of Grenada is a property unlike any other. A short 15 minute drive away from noisy tourist areas, Solitaire was designed as a luxurious getaway in the quiet of the island's most exclusive gated community.
With unobstructed views, a pool, private tennis court and waterfront access, you can stroll the expansive grounds enjoying a vast display of island flora, experience the sea breezes while you gaze out over the ocean, and fall asleep to the sounds of the waves gently lapping on the shore.
Ideal for families, this private estate is the perfect getaway - relaxing for parents and with lots to keep the kids entertained.
Solitaire has four bedrooms - Master bedroom with king-sized bed and en-suite bathroom including oversized soaker tub, and three additional bedrooms with two full and one queen sized bed. There is also an office/library that can be converted into an additional bedroom to sleep two.
3 ½ BATHROOMS
There are three and a half bathrooms and an additional outdoor shower in the pool area.
LIVING ROOM AND DINING
The villa features an expansive living room and dining room on the upper floor and with a den/TV room on the lower floor that opens out onto the pool area. Off the kitchen there is a separate breakfast veranda with beautiful views of the bay below. Additional dining areas include the upper floor veranda and poolside on the lower floor.
The well-stocked library provides guests with ample vacation reading material. Browse hundreds of books for all ages across a wide range of genres.
The pool is surrounded by landscaped gardens and features a gazebo close by where you can enjoy a cocktail while taking a break from the sun. There is an outdoor shower so that you can quickly rinse off after a dip in the sea or a game of tennis before diving in.
(Liability waiver is required).
LIT TENNIS COURT
Sitting on the flat at the foot of the hillside, the private tennis court is nestled beside the waterfront so that sea breezes keep you cool while you play. The court is also fully lit so you can play tennis late into the night. There is a paved driveway that leads down from the house in the event that guests prefer to drive down to the court or beach.
This exceptional property is a two acre spread that features a well tended array of blooming flowers and bearing fruit trees including pomegranate, lime, lemon, orange, papaya, West Indian cherry, carambola, coconut and many more. While the villa itself sits perched on the hillside for optimum views, the beautifully terraced gardens gently step down all the way to private water access.
BEACH & WATERFRONT
There is a small beach, accessible only to you, ideal for sunbathing and exploring. Solitaire sits on a sheltered bay so the waters are always calm and gently lapping at the shore. The bay is home to fertile reefs where there is an abundance of sea life and you may even catch a glimpse of local fishermen in small boats out in the waters. If you decide to swim in the bay we highly recommend you wear swimming shoes to ensure you protect your feet from coral.
There are three additional beaches located in the neighborhood within walking distance should you choose to explore.
CONCIERGE & PROPERTY MANAGER
During your stay, a concierge and property manager will be only a phone call away, and will make all arrangements for your needs ahead of your arrival. The concierge will also be available to do your grocery shopping and to purchase wine and liquor as needed.
If you'd like arrangements made for excursions around the island, a boat trip, special foods or if you have any questions, the concierge will be happy to assist you.
Arrangements can also be made to have a masseuse, manicurist or personal trainer come out to the villa for private sessions.
Solitaire is staffed by a team that will make you feel at home and ensure your stay is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
The housekeeper will be on the premises daily.
For an additional fee a chef can be available to prepare all of your meals or just select meals as requested.
Additional staff include two gardeners and a pool maintenance person who will ensure the outdoor amenities are well looked after.
We grew up in Grenada and although we now live in a few different countries, Grenada remains our favorite place on earth . We make a point to spend as much time there as we can. Villa Solitaire itself is a labor of love, built on previously undeveloped acreage and pristine waterfront that we explored as children. It remains a very special place to us.
Sheliza purchased this villa in 1988
Solitaire is a villa designed to take advantage of 2 acres of incredible waterfront. Beyond breathtaking views and amenities including a pool and private tennis court, the expansive gardens and secluded waterfront are ideal for exploration.
If you’re looking to reconnect with family and friends this is the ideal place to do so. Solitaire is a short 15 minute drive from the busiest tourist areas and 20 minutes from the capital city, so you’ll get the best of both worlds - privacy and tranquility when you want it, and lots of activity very close by.
As a family we travel ~5 times a year (2 ski trips, 1 easter, 1 summer 1 Xmas), and we use VRBO most of the time (although I usually too lazy to write reviews). This time I felt I ad too....I can say with great honesty that this villa, combined with the Island of Grenada is one of our all time highlights. The house had just been renovated and was actually even nicer than the photos look. The location was perfect for our family as it was only 15 mins to Grand Anse, but at the same time only 15 mins to the deserted beaches of the east coast. Jenny (the Doc) was an exceptional host and the 3 housekeepers were out of this world (the breakfast dishes each day were delicious and beautifully presented). The pool was newly renovated and great to use at all times of the day The tennis court was recently painted and in great shape. The house was perfect for our size of 5 people (hus, wife, 3 daughters)....although I am sure it could hold 5 more people with ease. The people in Grenada were the friendliest I have come across outside of Hawaii. Last, the relaxation factor was 10/10. We will be back.....
I'm happy to submit a review based on the grand vacation we had at Villa Solitaire. Susan, this was an awesome experience and indeed was way above our expectations. Vacationing with a larger than average sized family with my wife Shan and my four girls (ages 2-12), has never been as easy as this experience in Grenada. You were always easy to contact, very helpful with booking the villa and also coordinating the rental car.
Your staff was warm and very welcoming, especially on the evening we arrived. The complimentary dinner was exactly what we needed after our day of travel. Thank you for having the place stocked up with groceries for us as requested. We did check out the place after dinner, including the pantry.
Our first morning’s view was from the master bedroom which left us pleasantly stunned as daybreak revealed a magnificent view of the bay, all while still lying in bed! Shan didn’t want to move from her spot, taking in the sea, sky and mountains in the background.
I ventured outside, after checking on the girls, to explore the seemingly vast property. I only realized it went all the way down to the sea when walking past the tennis court. I did try some fishing right there at the shoreline and caught a snapper. The grounds are well taken care of and enjoyed the lush garden and abundant fruit trees.
The kids had a blast enjoying the garden, pool and the tennis court. My 2 year old was very busy exploring her new environment and we felt very comfortable letting her roam as the housekeeping staff kept the place spotless. The tons of books in the library did provide for interesting reading, even though often times the kids did opt to relax in front of the TV, without a care in the world.
At night, Shan and I enjoyed lounging on the patio, enjoying the gentle Caribbean breeze. We did venture out on a few occasions to sample the restaurants nearby but most of the time we were happy to eat in. The food was delicious. My favourites are stewed lambie (conch), oil down and Jenny’s mango cake.
Grenada is now on our list of favourites. The island is gorgeous, the people are friendly and Grand Anse beach absolutely has to be one of the world’s best beaches. We also loved visiting Mount Carmel Falls and the Grand Etang volcanic crater lake. Our bigger girls have also demanded another stay at your Villa.
This vacation villa truly spelled relaxation, adventure and family time. We will definitely be back. Thanks Susan, Jenny and the rest of the crew!!!
We booked Solitaire on a friend’s recommendation and I can truly say that it is a fantastic villa. This was the perfect place for our family to relax and unwind. If you’re going to Grenada this is the place to stay!
Even before we arrived we felt we were in excellent hands because Susan stayed in close communication with us and made sure everything was taken care of ahead of our arrival. She was able to have the villa stocked for us and even made arrangements for us to have a chef come to the villa one day.
The night we arrived we were greeted at the airport by Jenny and escorted to the property. We were blown away by how lovely it was and what nice energy the whole place had. Once we got a tour and settled in, we were served a delicious welcome meal. The kids even jumped in the pool for a swim after dinner.
Solitaire was beautiful architecturally with local art on the walls making it feel very cozy despite its size. It was very spacious with tons of room for us to spread out. There was even a library with lots of books and board games! The rooms were all very comfortable. There were many areas to hang out both inside and out. The kitchen was fully equipped (and stocked for us!) and we made use of both dining areas.
Our kids loved romping around the huge gardens and even went snorkeling from the beach on property. We gave tennis a shot since there was a court but none of us were any good at it. We still had a blast.
At night it was awesome to sit outside on the enormous patios because you could see just about every star in the sky!!
There was an amazing beach just a few minutes walk away where we were the only people. Solitaire does have 2 beaches but they are not very big and you do need to wear swim shoes because it is a very natural area with pieces of coral and shells mixed in with the sand.
The property owners and the concierge were very helpful and attentive, assisting us in making arrangements for rental cars, doing our grocery shopping for us, and helping us find all the best spots on the island. The housekeepers were really friendly, kept the villa spotless, cooked for us and took great care of us.
Grenada is lovely and we plan to go back soon. We drove all over the island but in the end we seemed to spend a lot of time at Solitaire because it was so wonderful all on its own. We’re going to try to book it again for our next trip to Grenada because it’s by far the best experience we’ve had with a villa rental.
Solitaire is located 5 minutes away from Grenada’s premium rum producer, Westerhall Estate. Visitors are encouraged to take a guided tour of the estate and sample their high quality branded rum products.
Grenada's world famous Grand Anse beach, a two and a half mile long stretch of pristine white sand, is a short 15 minute drive away.
