About the property

Poui Place is a spacious and luxurious 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath villa in the private Samaan Grove gated development. The villa is finished, furnished and equipped to an exceptional standard. The Great Room's multiple double French doors open up the living space onto a huge teak deck which borders the large swimming pool, outdoor pavilion and the large back yard. The deck is a great space for outdoor cooking, dining, entertaining, sunning, or simply relaxing.

The upstairs of this 2 story villa balconies off two of the bedrooms, offering great views of the surrounding development and the area. It has a striking modern design with traditional elements incorporating timber-clad upper walls, a large timber louver-roofed pavilion which appears to float in the swimming pool, and a large teak deck. The different water levels in the large swimming pool (32' and 10' shallow end) make it ideal for young children of all ages. Adult non-swimmers can stand in the deep end, as the depth is only 52'. Travertine marble flooring throughout add to the sense of luxury, and the extensive use of large glass side lites and french doors make all the spaces bright and airy.

European style touches are everywhere - from the bathrooms which have walk in showers with rain shower heads and frameless glass panels, to the high grade European vanities and sanitary ware, to the European style kitchen.

*Regular Season

Samaan Grove Development: The Samaan Grove Development is a gated development. With 24/7 access security, Poui Place's guests can rest assured that they will enjoy quiet, peaceful, private and secure surroundings in which to relax. The development is ideally centrally located, with the most popular beaches such as Store Bay & Pigeon Point to the south-west, and Grange Bay, Mt Irvine Bay & Stonehaven Bay to the north-east are all within 4-8 km and less than 10 minutes drive away. It is located off Milford Road and is close to the Crown Point area, where there is a wide range of eating choices - from ultra casual to fine dining.

KINDLY NOTE : No Man's Land is currently inaccessible until further notice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Definitely a home away from home. Poui Place was/is a beautiful back drop for my wedding prep pictures and a magnificent place to host our after wedding brunch. I didn't get to visit No Man's Land with all of the wedding prep but some of my guests did and they siad that it is beautiful. We will definitely be back. Hopefully before our anniversary.

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Poui Place and had a wonderful 5 day vacation! Everything went smoothly from the booking of the villa to our departure, thanks to Crystal and Theresa! The house is beautiful and open, so the breeze follows you everywhere you go. We saw security patrolling at all hours of the night and felt completely safe and relaxed. My one and only minor request would be for a a non stick skillet or cast iron pot in the kitchen for my eggs! Other than that I loved everything about this house, especially the proximity to Crown Point and two major supermarkets, Penny Savers and Mooreshead. I am returning to Tobago this summer and hope to book at Poui Place again!

There were no surprises. It was everything it advertised with excellent hospitality and service.

  • 4 of 5

The property was just what we needed for our vacation. Major upsides: it has all of your basic and practical amenities, good villa layout, centrally located, excellent, accomadating and responsive customer service from management and housekeeping/ground/security staff. Things to note: no televisions in bedroom (but you are not staying there to watch television), you need a car or taxi service if you want to go anywhere and it is in a gated community of other villas.

Lovely BUT Needs Upkeep

  • 3 of 5

This villa is really lovely but we had a number of issues that clearly show that the property is not being upkept/maintained properly. The villa itself is in the perfection location, has a perfect pool, grounds are very well maintained. However, these issues were pre-communicated to us, nonetheless, they existed... AC in the master bathroom wasn't working (fixed next day), toilet seats were wobbly and falling off, in the master bedroom the toothbrush holder was rusted completely, the handles/mixers in the showers were all old and need to be changed, one completely came off on the first night, we turned on the fan in the master bedroom and dust was blowing everywhere off the fan, the cable on the tv is not working so we weren't able to use the tv, the microwave needs to be cleaned on the inside. The villa could be perfect but it really needs to be upkept a lot better for the price.

Owner's Response: Hello Krystal, thank you for your feedback as it is valued. As accurately stated, in advance of your stay we communicated that the A/C was not working, and as an interim solution, we offered 2 portable AC units to be used for one night, as the technician would have fixed it the next day, which he did. The toilet clips had been ordered in advance but did not arrive in time for your stay, of which we also communicated. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.Regarding your other issues, we have already taken the necessary steps to replace the shower handles, toothbrush holder and have instructed our cleaning staff about the dust and microwave concerns. We do wish we had been contacted about the cable not working, as we would have sent someone to fix this issue. We agree that Poui Place is in the perfect location on maintained grounds with a gorgeous pool and as such we will work to make it as an enjoyable experience for our incoming guests. Thank you again for your insights.

My home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd stay at Poui, this is a special place to my husband and I. Our friends even calls it our home lol. We stayed at Poui the year we got married in Tobago and it has been my go to place since.

Management makes the process extremely easy. From the gatekeeper to the clean staff they are all familiar and friendly.

I like that the community is away from the central tourist area, but it's still conveniently located with a car or a quick call to a taxi.

Poui is definitely the place for a wonderful escape.

I never usually leave reviews but my stay at Poui was just fantastic, it would be unjust not to. The description and pic is exactly as shown on the website, this house is beautiful. The garden area at the back is lovely and very relaxing. The property was clean and well stocked with kitchen essentials. The customer service received from both Crystal and Theresa was exceptional and i would like to thank them for making the process so hassle free. I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends!!!

I fell absolutely in love with Pouis place. It is really now my go to place just to get some RnR. However as an Attorney at Law there are just a few little suggestions I will wish to make to protect you form any exposure to litigation.

As an owner of a rental you can be liable under occupiers liability for harm /injury sustained during a persons stay at the place despite having a contact which may appear to protect you from litigation. I respectfully suggest the following based on my observations;

1. The steps are wooden and persons from the pool can slip easily and fall, I suggest a big rubber mat of some sort so persons can wipe off before using the steps.

2. The patio on the pool as you exit the kitchen area , should also be reviewed. The tiles there when wet can result in injury to especially children. My son for example did slip and fell head first into one of the narrow water ways luckily we were there and he did not incur any injury. I suggest you look into that.

3. There are exposed electrical plugs too close to the pool , these should be covered immediately, as to avoid any unfortunate occurence.

And this is about it for now.

Notwithstanding the above I will go to POUIS place agin because it really is a home away from home and my kids and family loved it. The self contained house makes a vacation convenient and hassel free. I only made those suggestions because I am a lawyer with a lot of cooperate clients, so jus to protect you I respectfully made these suggestions.

Thanks again, the owners are really welcoming and this added to the great time we all had! Cheers!!!!
