Moments is not your typical vacation resort. Nestled in the hills of Scarborough, Tobago, situated northeast of its twin island Trinidad, this beautifully appointed villa offers you a home away from home on this small lush Caribbean island replete with rainforests, waterfalls and pristine beaches. Tobago is not your usual touristy island. Tourism does not feel imposed on this country; the island is beautifully defined by its unique local life.
Come here to relax, replenish or rejuvenate. Come with your spouse or partner to rekindle a romance. Come to start, finish or edit your book. (contact us ref. writers packages). Moments features two elegant bedroom suites, each with a private master bath and gorgeous ocean views. You will find a fully appointed kitchen with dining sitting areas that open to a semi-circular porch for sitting, reading or just gazing at the vast ocean view. For guests seeking to reserve both bedrooms the rate is $150 per night. Please contact the owner directly for other longer term rates.
Two steps down and you are in the Jacuzzi for a soothing water massage under the sun or the moon or in the pool for an invigorating or relaxing swim. Moments surrounds you in tranquility and natural beauty day and night. Moments is close to many open stretches of beach, however, it is recommended that you plan to rent a car or hire a driver for the length of your stay or for day trips. 'Tranquility'-
Tobago is luxuriantly forested with an abundant water supply and mountainous terrain marked by waterfalls and mountain pools along the courses of its many small rivers. Protecting Tobago's coastline is mile after mile of coral reef harbouring a wide variety of marine life which feeds on the fertile convergence of two seas. The mean annual temperature is 32 degrees C (89 degrees F) with an average rainfall of 200 cm (40 inches). Dry season is from January to May and wet season from June to December. Significantly, Tobago is outside of the hurricane belt. See www.momentstobago.com.

K. Brisbane purchased this villa in 2001
We chose to build in this location because of the weather and being outside of hurricane belt. The property is on a hillside overlooking the Atlantic ocean with a magnificent view up the island and a wide angle view of the rainforest.
high on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a view of the northern coast of Trinidad. The trade winds provide natural and constant breezes and the waters surrounding the island as wonderfully clean and refreshing.
It's short walk to beaches, a 5-minute drive to town. It is quiet, private and secure. You can choose to be in the mix of traffic and activity by going 1 mile into town or remain at home, lounging on the decks, swimming in the pool or luxuriating in the Jacuzzi. Owner/representative on property.
Dear K & Leonard
First and foremost, I feel that I've gained two new friends. Secondly, I have had a wonderfull time here at Moments. You have created a "divine" space. K - Thanks for restoring my water confidence, something I did not know I had lost. Trust me I will be back to Tobago and to Moments. Affectionately, Karen
I was a guest at "Moments" twice. First in 2004 and, again in 2006. I'm long overdue for a return trip. I am a frequent traveler to the Caribbean - my roots run deep in two other islands but I can say that, more than any other island I've been to, "Moments" in Tobago made me feel most at home. The physical space created by the builders/owners is magnificent. It does what many tropical villas DON'T do - it embodies the landscape and the climate so that there is a beautiful balance of nature and nurture. The rooms are beautifully appointed: the bedrooms are cozy and comfortable lending themselves appropriate for the romantic or the meditative or both; the bathrooms large and luxurious especially after a day at the beach when sand is in your pores and you long for a cleansing shower to refresh you. The living space blends indoor and outdoor so that you can prepare meals while gazing at the sea; sit inside or out to eat; feel the breeze that wafts through the shuttered and beautiful windows. The infinity pool is an absolute delight. You can swim to infinity and get a workout at the same time or you can tread in place just gazing at the ocean view that lies in front of you. The care and service you receive at "Moments" is unparalleled. Guest are treated like family and your every need is anticipated or provided upon request. I recommend a visit to "Moments" wholeheartedly, that's if I don't beat you to it!
Our party of four adults spent 3 thoroughly enjoyable nights at "Moments". The facilities were excellent, the view out across the Atlantic amazing, and the layout of the two villas perfect for our needs. Highly recommended for 2 x couples.
In August 2013, my family and I stayed at Moments for a week. We are Trinidadians and have stayed at several different types of accommodation in Tobago - hotels, guest houses and villas. We have also holidayed in other Caribbean islands and I have travelled extensively throughout the region attending conferences and meetings staying at many hotels from the simple to the luxurious.
Our experience at Moments was truly wonderful. It is very well located: just outside the main town in Tobago, Scarborough; with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Though there are neighbouring houses, the design of Moments means that once there you feel that you are in your own little private oasis.
The villa is very well appointed and designed and has all the requirements for a very comfortable stay. The pool and outdoor jacuzzi add to the facilities but, quite frankly except for some of my children who spent short times in the pool, we preferred to swim at one of the many good beaches that Tobago has to offer. This has nothing to do with the pool, but nothing beats good, warm Caribbean sea!
Our holiday experience was wonderful and the owners and the person who takes care of the premises in their absence provided us with all the support we needed. want to get away? Rest? Relax? Rejuvenate? Moments did all that for my family and I. I'm sure it will do it for you too!
The place is very sharp, the view is stunning, noting is missing ( kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms...) very quiet and private. If you like to rent proprety (condo, cottage, home) on vacation your are going love this one. The only thing that we would expect is more deck chairs, to relax by the beautiful pool and spa. We spend time in Trinidad and Tobago and if we go back, it's going to be Tobago ! Same place for sure! We believe that a car is advantage, to go around!
It was a sheer joy to stay at Moments!
The listing accurately reflected the location of the property as well as the distance from the airport. The cost listed is per bedroom, although there is a discount when both bedrooms are rented. There also is a small insurance fee.
In general the property was as pictured. The house is painted in a gorgeous shade of blue, decorated very tastefully and thoughtfully, and the views of the ocean from the bedrooms, the living room and the pool and jacuzzi are simply stunning!
Although there were fans in each room, the weather was relatively cool, especially at night. We also did not need to use the mosquito nets that were provided.
The outdoor shower was spacious and delightful to bathe in on warm, sunny mornings.
The only surprises were 1) the steep driveway (after all, it's on the side of a hill! Also, the owner thoughtfully added steps and a handrail to help with the walk up the driveway) and 2) the steps to the bedrooms on the second floor were on the outside, not the inside, of the house.
Although car rentals are rather pricey, having a dependable car likely would be a plus, both with going up the driveway as well as getting into Scarborough (the wait for a taxi on the street can be rather long and the walk into town can be a bit much for some folk). The other option would be to hire a driver, but this can become rather expensive if it's done over several days.
I called and/or e-mailed the owner at least five times prior to my trip. She was always prompt in getting back to me, friendly, courteous, thoughtful and knowledgable. It was a delight to speak with her.
I must add that the owner's thoughtfulness and care were apparent even in the small things - DVDs, puzzles, a book of stories and jokes, a book listing attractions on the island, umbrellas, a cell phone, wonderful smelling soap, etc.
I already recommended this vacation rental to my brother and a couple of friends. Of course, I am looking forward to enjoying another vacation at Moments in the not too distant future!
My husband and I have stayed @ this beautiful property several times over the past eight years and have always felt well respected by the owners of this lovely property. In fact following several stays we felt as if we were guests of this couple in their beautiful home
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean . It is a ice treat to watch as the ferry travels to and fro Trinidad to Tobago. The views from this property are lovely which further enhances being
Able to stay @ this incredible property. The guest house's accommodations are so nice ,
Very comfortable w/ kitchen facilities allowing guests to prepare food if desired. Many times
This may be a bonus for guests which may allow a saving on their vacation as they don't have to eat out unless this is desired by the particular guest/s. The large beautiful infinity
Pool allows one to relax , swim and / or use the hot tub; a treat following a active day of
Sight seeing. The accommodations have always been clean, comfortable w/ the surrounding
Area quiet allowing for a restful night of sleep. Awakening to the mountain and ocean views
Is also a favorite of our sand many other we suspect. The property is well maintained , the pool area very clean and the rooms beautifully done in warm comfortable colors adding to the overall relaxation of this unique property. My husband and I would highly recommend
This particular property for all of the features listed And more.
Both the Atlantic and Caribbean beaches on the island have wonderful waves for boogey boarding year round. Guests may borrow boogey boards from Moments. Argyle Falls in Roxborough is a nature preserve with luxuriant mutli-level falls with swimming ponds on several levels. Exotic birds fill the surrounding forest.
