Chaconia is a special place, that makes you feel welcome and relaxed.
This was our second time ( 1 week in 2014, and 2 weeks this year) staying in the paradise that is known as Chaconia. It took us three years to return, and it was exactly as we remembered!
The four of us, 2 from Canada, and 2 from Sweden are already longing to return.
So much so that we have already booked our next trip!
From Liz meeting us with keys in hand, walking us through to show us the updates since we had been there, to Lenore's friendly "hello" when she arrived to clean, to Chris tidying up the gardens and telling us the best place in Scarborough for pizza...we could not have asked for more.
Liz is a wealth of knowledge, you have only to ask!
New this time was an email every few days from Liz with the upcoming weather. She knew that we were out and about on the Island, so it was thoughtful of her to give us the extra information.
Chaconia is perfectly appointed for those who enjoy cooking, with everything that you could want. We borrowed the grill and enjoyed fresh red snapper as well as chicken.
The small vegetable stands are great for buying produce both familiar and also those that are not available in your home country, and if you ask, the venders are happy to tell you how to cook dasheen and callaloo(spelling) as well as the others whose names escape me. Delicious!
*Note that for those who do not want to cook, The Fishpot, and The Seahorse Inn are excellent, and an easy walk from Black Rock!
The beds are comfortable, and the ceiling fans and air conditioners maintain the temperature exactly as you wish! The ensuite bathrooms for the master and the queen rooms have great showers, as well as the convenience.
Chaconia is located on one of the nicest, quietest beaches, in our opinion! There are many small beaches as you tour the island, but this one, not being along the main road, seems to be a little quieter.
The Tobago winds were a little high, and waves as well when we were there this year, but the bay in front of Chaconia and to the right always provided an easy entry into the sea.
If you are looking for just the right place to take your family, friends, or just escape on your own, Chaconia is it. Go for it!
