About Stein and Edel Foss

My wife and I are born and live in Norway in a little town called Skien - the same place as we grew up and went to school.

We are now both retired and spend lots of time in our house in Tobago.

Stein and Edel Foss purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Stein and Edel Foss chose Trinidad & Tobago

My wife and I went to Tobago for the first time in 1993. We fell in love with the beautiful island and the people there, and continued our travelling to Tobago every year. In 2005 we were lucky to get the opportunity to purchase a piece of land almost on the beach by the Caribbean Sea. The same year we build our house on the premises. By now we have travelled back and forth to Tobago for 20 years. The name ' Pride of Courland ' was

taken from the old wooden house that were on the premises before we built our new house.

What makes this apartment unique

The place is unique and has a breathtaking view out to the Caribbean Sea and the sunsets you can enjoy from the porch.

The coconut trees overhanging the beach together with a wide variety of colourful birds, a lush garden with tropical plants and flowers combined with the sound from the sea.

The Foss' are very polite hosts. Their driver picked us up at the airport and was very friendly. The housekeeper went way out of her way to help us identify places to go. The pool is lovely and the sound of the waves heavenly.

Which way to the beach today?

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a beach, then there are two spectacular choices, one to the left and one to the right, within a short stroll. If you want more, or want to explore what else the island offers you really need a car or to use taxis, as public transport can be a bit hit or miss. The property was as advertised except the laundry machines are no longer available for use, although a laundry service was offered. The apartment was ideal for us as a couple, but be aware that the second bedroom is accessed through the master bedroom so the property may not be suitable for two couples. Local shops are within walking distance and offer the basic supplies. You need to travel further if a greater range is sought. There are numerous fruit stalls along the main road that offer fresh fruit and vegetables. For restaurants you need to travel further. We used the apartment as a base for exploring the island and would find places to eat on our travels. The rain forest, Little Tobago, the Adventure Park and the boardwalk at Petit Trou were for us some of the highlights. Driving is not for the faint-hearted, just take your time. Theodora and the team keep the apartments clean and the garden tidy.

Owner's Response: Hi Many thanks for reviewing our holidayapartment.. Just to correct a little mistake - laundryservice is available, but you have to ask our housekeeper Theadora. she will do it for a reasonable cost at 30 TT$ pr. load, we always inform about that. We had to stop guests from using the laundrymachines because many misused them and caused trouble and high maintenance costs. We will also inform that one of Tobagos best restaurants - The Sea Horse Inn is within walking distance from the apartment. To drive or not to drive will be a personal choice, but if you take your time it is ok. Concerning the access to the second bedroom it is informed about that on our webside, but most of the time we have 4 guests in the apartment -couples/friends and we never had any complains about that, but it will always be a personal decission if you like it or not. After all, we hope you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Mr. and Mrs. Foss

Spacious apartments in wonderful surrondings

  • 5 of 5

To Mr and Mrs Foss,

We had an absolutely wonderful 2 weeks stay at "Pride of Coreland"! The "Royal Tern" and "Blue Bird" apartments were perfect for us. They were spacious (with high ceilings), and especially the youngsters were very happy for the excelent intenet connection :-). In addition, you really have a lovely garden and a beautiful seafront.

We appreciated that we stayed in a neighborhood where we could experience the authentic life at Tobago. And we were so grateful that Theodora helped us to buy a local Christmas dinner and that she made curry fish for. Please give her our warmest regards!

Thank you again - we will recommend you to all our friends here in Norway!

Best regards from families Lindkjenn and Hagerupsen-Hansen

Great location - Ocean view !

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the two ground floor Apartments. This must be one of the best locations for a holiday rental villa. We were a Family of 6, With grandparents, parents and grandchildren. We all enjoyed the stay and had a wonderful time, at the pool, at the Beach and exploring the island. The locals are really pleasant and we were invited to harvest at the neighbour's house, a great experience. The crew With Steve, Washi and the fantastic housekeeper Theadora made everything go smoothly from pickup until dropping us off at the airport when leaving. Fresh Fish and lobster supplied by another neighbour made, tasted fantastic.

We got to see the leatherback turtles coming on the Beach, a wonderful experience.

We will recommend this Place to all who are looking for a tranquil Place on the lovely Beach.

Hans and Family from Norway.

brilliant location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and son Joshua (6) have just returned from a lovely 2 weeks staying at the Bluebird apartment. Josh loved running in and out of the sea and jumping in and out of the pool. It was lovely to be able to barbeque on the deck at night listening to the waves, and we really enjoyed eating in the local restaurants, and exploring the island. In summary a lovely relaxing trip - thank-you for renting it to us! Rachel Targett
