The thing about this house is that it's in sync with the best parts of Tobago: sun, sea and breeze. And some surprises along the way.
I stayed for a week with my family of 7: a senior (85+), 4 adults, and 3 teenagers. A wide range of ages, but we all made some wonderful memories at this lovely gem of a place in Bacolet. The property listing and pictures do not capture how unbelievable the sunset is at this villa. Tobago sunsets are a real treat, even for us Trinidadians, and this villa certainly spoils you by giving you the best seat in the island — literally sitting on top of the bay, watching the ships roll in. Smack dab in the middle of the sunset. The sea breezes and gentle rains fill in the rest of the day — of which the walls of the house seem to magically disappear and it becomes the best place to read a book or take a nap or watch Netflix (internet is a bit come and go).
The house itself is clean and luxurious, but for me — it's the prime location over untainted Bacolet Bay which makes it charming. Our own little Maracas Bay. The beach is well protected and never crowded — a nice mix of locals who are great to talk to, and visitors from the nearby Blue Haven Hotel. The waters can get rough and lifeguard duty can be improved, but for the most it's one of my favourite places to swim. And also go crabbing. At night during high tide, you can see huge blue crabs sitting at the entrances of their holes. Along the bottom of the ridge, where the house is perched are a multitude of small enough rocks which you can climb and explore a whole marine ecosystem — collect hermit crabs and chase tiny fish and baby crabs.
I highly recommend this place for families and look forward to staying there again.
