Tranquil, scenic, luxurious and pampered
I knew going in that I would enjoy my stay just from the helpful communications with Kathy, however it was far exceeded by all the cogs in the wheel that earned La Jolie the 5 stars. Helen catered to assisting with everything including car rentals, before we even arrived. Ulin was cheery and took such good care of us. There was a minor issue with the AC after the first night and within an hour of mention, was fixed by two very helpful - and fast - gentlemen.
This occasion was very special to me, bringing a close knit group of friends to my island home for a milestone birthday and graduation. La Jolie was the perfect setting for it, and they've all enjoyed their stay, with a strong desire to come back. I couldn't be happier with the way things went, I'm honestly impressed and my family have found a new place to call home when visiting Tobago.
TRAVEL CAVEATS & GOOD-TO-KNOWS:
- if you aren't planning to rent a car, taxis are ok but there's enough in the area to stay there for. If you desire you see rest of Tobago, car recommend - it's an easy drive to and from Crowne Point.
- there's a bit of a hill to climb or 124 stairs down to main road / beach, so if you have bad knees, go slowly, or have someone else do your bidding in the house as I did hehehe
- ample grocery locations in the little village below, within a 5 minute drive another well stocked grocery, and a Penny Savers on Milford Rd about 10-12 minutes from house.
- there are tiny biting creatures in the morning vs evening, so grab a tube of our local Odomos, arm yourself with the Villa Zapper and you're totally fine. Or - stay in the pool, I mean why come out anyways!!
Overall, as with anywhere, you get what you put into it. Generally in Tobago, you're treated well but treat the home and people with respect in return and you will get it back in spades and then some as we did with La Jolie.
Thank you for the perfect start to a new chapter in my life - hopefully it's as good as this stay was.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at La Jolie! It was very comfortable for my family, especially having a baby the environment was very clean which was really important to me. I would definetly recommend anyone to experience the spectacular ocean view, waking up to the relaxing sounds of the ocean waves. The kids enjoyed the salt water pool that was very safe. Such a great place well designed that captures all aspects of Tobago's natural beauty. Looking forward for another stay soon!
Thanks for your lovely review, it was our pleasure having you.
Absolutely what we were looking for
To put it simply: La Jolie surpassed our expectations. Everything was perfect and we had no issues at all. My family found comfort and convenience both in terms of the amenities and the location. We will certainly recommend and return.
Thanks for your lovely review. It was our pleasure to have you at La Jolie, we hope to see you you again soon .
My family and I had a great weekend at the Villa. It's equipped with everything you need and the view is amazing. Best part of the stay was the pool and hot tub - we only left the house once the entire weekend! Thanks for letting us use your lovely rental.
so happy you enjoyed your stay...
Beautiful villa, great views, amazing hospitality
My family and I stayed at La Jolie for a weekend and I must say we are all very sad we didn't book the villa for a longer stay. La Jolie has everything that is listed in the description and is a beautiful villa, it makes you feel right at home. The kitchen was FULLY equipped with everything imaginable making it so easy to have home cooked meals which was extremely convenient. The housekeeper was more than hospitable and helped us very much. We were so sad to leave. Waking up every morning to the sea views was paradise. We had so much fun in the pool in the day time and relaxing in the Jacuzzi in the night. But what made everything 100x better was the absolute privacy you have at this villa. Everything is very private yet all your necessities such as groceries, market, fast food is literally a 10 min walk away. Thank you so much for having us it was our first time in Tobago but one of our best vacations yet. We would definitely love to visit La Jolie again soon.
Let Go and Be.
Our family stayed at La Jolie in June. This place has great energy. Elegant yet comfortable, it reminded me of my family’s home in Trinidad. The layout is well thought out. The main living area is spacious and opens out onto a large patio, an infinity pool and jacuzzi. My best memory is sitting by the pool with a drink and watching the sunset and birds especially the hummingbirds taking their last sip of nectar before night fell. There are three large bedrooms with en-suite baths and on the ground floor there is a handicapped accessible bedroom with bathroom close by. Ms. Ulin takes very good care of this place and its guests. Lots of white linens and towels are provided. The living area is enclosed by decorative wrought iron / glass french doors which, while providing security, do not impede the spectacular view of sea and sky. There is excellent cross ventilation when the doors and windows are open even in June. If you are a birdwatcher this place is for you. I observed finches, warblers, hummingbirds just hanging out at the pool. A bananaquit makes its home in an overhang and flies in and out of its nest at leisure. We found this villa affordable. We cooked all our meals (and we had very active hungry children with us) in the well equipped kitchen. I am an amateur cook/baker and I greatly enjoyed using the six burner gas stove and the serious oven. The kitchen is very well equipped . An outdoor grill is provided. The fish market in Mt Irving is close by so we enjoyed great fresh fish dinners that would have cost a fortune if we were eating out. I am artist, my husband a writer. We found much to inspire us here. The house is big enough to accommodate those who wanted a quiet spot to just be. But then that’s my advice. This is a great place to just let go and be. Would I recommend it? Yes 100%.
Thank you for your most beautiful review of our villa! We try to make it a home away from home, where you can 'just be'. Hope you can visit us again soon.
La Jolie is located on the bluff above one of the nicest beaches in Tobago, Stonehaven Bay. La Jolie is only five minutes from Mt. Irvine professional golfing center and ten minutes from Plantation Golf and Country Club.
Tobago's amazing beaches are only two minutes away with convenient access to PADI dive centers, we use Undersea Tobago out of Coco Beach Hotel ask for Derek Chung, sailing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and other water sports. Shops from supermarkets to kiosks, are all nearby including fresh fish every afternoon; further away are the Scarborough market, delicatessen and meat straight from the farm!
Golf: Tobago has two beautiful golf courses, Tobago Plantations Golf and Country Club and the Tobago Mount Irvine Golf Course. The Mount Irvine Bay Golf Course is an 18 Hole Course with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, carved out amongst an old coconut plantation. Established in 1968, the Course is set within gently rolling countryside along the coast, with a view of the sea from every hole and an abundance of massive coconut palm trees. Like no other course in the world, the 18 hole PGA Championship course at Tobago Plantations has been designed to work with it’s stunning Caribbean backdrop. This British designed course takes you around mangroves and mature palm trees, to coastline holes offering views of Tobago’s capital in one direction and the Atlantic Ocean in the other. Wetlands and lakes are being nurtured around the course to encourage wildlife to add to the unique golfing experience at Plantations.
