Overview

Tobago Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 shower bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps up to 10

Elysian is a spacious, elegant and luxurious 3 bedroom villa in the Samaan Grove gated development, which has 24 hour access security. The villa is centrally located, with the airport and most popular beaches all being less than 10 minutes drive away. On entering the villa, you will immediately appreciate the bright, open and airy design as well as the exceptionally high quality and style of the construction, finishes, furniture and fittings. The Great Room opens to the porch and private pool as well as a separate side Terrace. The villa provides all expected modern conveniences and more – full air-conditioning including the Great Room, high end kitchen with stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, granite counter tops and island bar, and full laundry facilities. All expected entertainment amenities are provided - satellite TV, DVD and CD/Radio player. WiFi internet access is provided. Elysian's guests have free land side access to No Man's Land beach.

Elysian Villa: The villa is very spacious with over 2100 square feet (186 Sq M) of living space. The 3 bedrooms have 1 King, 2 Queen, and 1 Queen beds respectively. A convertible queen-sized sofabed in the living area provides overflow capacity for 2 additional guests. The villa can comfortably sleep 10. The quality of the furniture is exceptional - leather living room sofa set and 46' flat screen TV with DirecTV HD service in the Great Room. All the furniture was imported from Miami. Panasonic Split air conditioners were selected for their exceptionally quiet performance. The Great Room is also air conditioned, with 2 split 24000 BTU units. Two 12 foot doorways in the Great Room open out to the porch as well as a side terrace, allowing for a fantastic open indoor-outdoor feeling as well as opening up the villa for fresh cooling breezes to flow through. The vast expanses of glass enhance the light and airy feeling. The 32' pool has 3 depths - a shallow area that allows you to sit or lie with your chair or lounger in the water which allows you to stay cool while you tan and relax, a mid depth area ideal for the kids, and even the deep end is only 4 1/2' suitable for non-swimming adults.

Every expected amenity is provided and more. Guests have told us that many times, they don't even want to leave the villa to go to the beach - the villa is stocked with books, DVDs, even board games so if you just want to relax and chill out in total luxury you can do so.

Samaan Grove Development: The Samaan Grove Development is a gated development in Tobago, with 24 hour security. As Elysian Villa's guests, you can rest assured that you will enjoy quiet, peaceful, private and secure surroundings in which to enjoy your holiday. The development is ideally located, with the most popular beaches such as Store Bay & Pigeon Point to the south-west, and Grange Bay, Mt Irvine Bay & Stonehaven Bay to the north-east are all within 4-8 km and less than 10 minutes drive away. It is located off Milford Road and is close to the Crown Point area, where there is a wide range of eating choices - from ultra casual and takeout, to fine dining.

Travel Directions from the airport: From the ANR Robinson International Airport, proceed east approx 3 Km along Milford Road. Turn left onto Golden Grove Road and drive approx 1 Km until you arrive at the Samaan Grove entrance and guard booth. After gaining admittance from the security guard, drive into the development. Elysian Villa will be on the left shortly after you pass the side road. Drive time from the airport is approximately 7-9 minutes.

From the Port at Scarborough head west along Claude Noel Hwy towards Crown Point, turn right onto Golden Grove Road after passing Shirvan Road. Drive time from the port approximately 12-15 minutes depending on traffic conditions in Scarborough.

No Man's Land - a big Bonus!: For many visitors and even residents of Trinidad & Tobago, 'No Man's Land' has been a well-kept secret. This slender spit of beach was usually accessed by boat, and as a result is well known mainly to the tour boat operators, who often take their clients there for beach-side barbeques. Residents and guests of villas in the Samaan Grove Development have exclusive land-side access to this beach, since the access road can be entered only from within the development. Visitors will enjoy the peacefulness and seclusion of the idyllic and scenic location, almost completely surrounded by the waters of Buccoo Lagoon and the Buccoo Reef. The beach is ideal for children and non-swimmers, as the water is always clear and calm due to the protective reefs offshore.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Elysian Villa was wonderful. We stayed with our four children and even brought our nanny/babysitter with us who stayed comfortably in the accomodation. The house is beautifully designed with a warm and welcoming feel whilst showing off an elegance and contemporary style all wrapped together with a beautiful garden and pool area for entertaining. Fully equipped, the house met our every need as a family. We loved the location as we got direct access to the paradise of No Mans Land where we drove to from the house via a private road. Clyde was extremely hospitable and available if we needed anything. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for comfort, luxury and convenience when staying in Tobago. One small recommendation would be that the house have a readily available crib for those families with babies/toddlers. We walked with our playpen for our baby to sleep in, but it would be nice to have one at the house to save us one less thing to travel with. Thanking Clyde for the fantastic service at Elysian! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. Regarding the suggestion for a crib to be available, we plan to have a Pack n Play available to guests with infants in the near future.

Truly Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This villa actually exceeded our expectations the pictures don't do it justice. The villa is exceptional in terms of design but its best feature has to be the open concept floor plan and the wrap around glass door in the living room area where the Caribbean light and breeze hits you with a subdued feeling of serenity and relaxation. The setting of the villa in the Samaan Grove development is gorgeous and picturesque and the neighbours are very friendly and hospitable. The villa is centrally located as it a few minutes from the airport and Scarborough. For the beach enthusiast, No mans land, Pigeon Point and Store bay are only a few minutes away and the foodies can enjoy the many breakfast nooks and restaurants nearby, the nightlife junkie can be relieved to know that the Crown Point area is a stones throw away with a host of bars and clubs along a strip and for the nature lover many tour agencies offer sightseeing, bird watching, horse back riding and diving. It really can't get much better than this! I highly recommend booking with Mr. Alleyne who provided top notch service, paying special care and attention to our needs. Friends and family who saw pictures of our stay there were anxious to plan a trip to Tobago just to stay at Elysian Villa. It is exactly where you need to be to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. What are you waiting for take the step and book this villa and start making memories that last a lifetime.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Elysian! We stayed there for two nights and Clyde took care of all of our needs. The house was amazing and very true to the pictures. It was very clean with a great pool and everything we could ask for. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and stay here again!

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

The only thing we did not like about Elysian was the fact that we had to leave. It was truly a home away from home and our family had a wonderful time staying here. The villa is absolutely astounding; picture perfect. Access to No Man's Land was a definite plus. Clyde was extremely personable yet professional, as was Anita the housekeeper. Even the security at Samaan Grove entrance did all they could to make us feel welcome, and kept us informed of events taking place in Tobago. Although our family always tries to vacation in different vacation homes every time, I do not think we will consider staying anywhere else when in Tobago. We're already considering booking the villa for a few nights for our relatives who live in Trinidad. Do not look any further. If you want a truly relaxing, worry-free stay in Tobago, do yourself a favor and book Elysian. You will not regret it.

An enjoyable stay

  • 3 of 5

An enjoyable experience away from home. I appreciated the different levels in the pool since I have a young child. The villa looks exactly like its photos. This quite and secure development is also very close to the top beaches and fantastic restaurants. Clyde and his wife were extremely helpful and welcoming. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Elysian Villa is located in the gated development of Samaan Grove. Samaan Grove is centrally located off Golden Grove Road in Canaan in the heart of South West Tobago, within 7-10 minutes drive of the popular beaches like Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Mt Irvine Bay and No Man's Land. Close by is a wide range of eating places ranging from local takeout and fast food to fine dining.

Leisure activities available nearby range from bicycle rentals, horseback riding, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, reef tours, deep sea and on-shore fishing, and sailing. Less than 8 minutes drive away, golfers have a choice of the Mt Irvine Golf Course or the PGA rated Tobago Plantations Golf Course.

Popular supermarkets Pennysavers and RT Morshead are just a few minutes drive away, while Canaan Food Basket is just around the corner on Milford Road, making it ideal for a quick run to stock up on fruit, vegetables and beverages.

A significant bonus for guests is exclusive land side access to the well-known No Man's Land beach, which is very popular with locals in the know and tour operators. Secluded and dramatically positioned at the end of a narrow spit of land and flanked by the Buccoo Lagoon, the Caribbean sea and the Buccoo Reef, the beach is sheltered by the Buccoo Reef offshore. The water is usually crystal clear and glass calm, making the beach ideal for non swimmers and young children. There is also plentiful natural shade, making it a perfect place to spend hours lazing by the calm clear water in privacy.

We highly recommend the following for eating experiences: La Cantina for genuine Italian style thin crust pizza from a wood burning oven - located in the Royal Bank plaza in Crown Point, Skewers for Arabic style fast food in Crown Point, Chefs & BBQ for local foods selected cafeteria style for take home eating in Crown Point, Shore Things for casual eating in a lovely setting by the sea in Lambeau on the old Milford Road, Fish Pot Restaurant for fresh seafood in Pleasant Prospect close to the Grafton Beach/Stonehaven Bay areas, La Tartaruga for great Italian food and a top class wine selection located in Buccoo, Seahorse Inn for international dishes on Old Grafton Road overlooking Grafton Beach. There's a Doubles vendor who comes out most afternoons and sets up in the Stumpy's car park on Milford Road. For coconut bake and saltfish or bake and smoked herring for breakfast on a morning, you can't go wrong by buying from Golden Girls Bakery at the corner of Golden Grove Road and Milford Road - literally a minute's drive from Samaan Grove.

Notes:
The great room opens up to the porch and the side yard via fold-away doors, creating 12' openings on two sides and opening up the indoors to the outdoors for a very open breezy space. Fully glassed walls by the porch and the side yard create a very bright and airy feeling in the great room. There is an uninterrupted view from the kitchen past the living and dining areas to the porch, swimming pool and pool deck ensuring that all the indoor and outdoor activities are fully connected at all times. This is especially nice when you have to keep an eye on your young children. All bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms. There is also a half bath. The Great Room, encompassing the Living and Dining areas and the Kitchen, is also air conditioned with split air conditioners. On request, you can have a cook prepare private meals for you. This could be a wonderful way to experience local dishes in the privacy and convenience of the villa.
