About Liz Sloper
I have been living in Tobago for the past 17 years, I was married to a Trinbagonian, whom I met in England. After many years he decided to come 'home' so I came with him! Before I moved here I worked for a couple of travel companies in the UK, as well as travelling around the world. I have visited many beautiful countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Southern Africa, Cook Islands, Samoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Thailand plus many more. Although Tobago is small, it has so many fantastic features that many of the above islands do not have and yet it is still a hidden treasure ready for you to explore.
Why Liz Sloper chose Black Rock
It's all about the location and the amenities of this property, situated on what I believe is the nicest beach in Tobago. Grafton Beach is a long sandy beach with a gentle slope into the sea. The apartment is set up in such a way it is like a home from home, with just about all the creature comforts you need in a self-catering apartment, making your stay the most enjoyable it can be. Located to one side of the building, you reap the benefits of the lush tropical garden and local birdlife, whilst still enjoying the view of the Caribbean sea. The side aspect also means more light and breeze on those hot tropical days and nights...
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location... If a Caribbean beach is your ideal vacation, then Chaconia delivers it in full! Only a small number of properties in Tobago have direct beach access - Chaconia is one of the few! The apartment is also suited to those who are slightly less physically able or have young children, as it is all one level. Additionally as it one of the lower level apartments in the building, there are fewer steps to the grounds. For the safety conscious traveller, there is comfort in the knowledge of a monitored alarm system, should you feel the need to use it. Our housekeeper visits 6 mornings a week (excluding Sundays and Public holidays), so no need to worry about general housework whilst on your holiday...

Short getaway to tropical paradise
Everything about our stay at Chaconia was exceptional. Liz, the property manager, was a tremendous help from the very first stage of the booking process. She helped with transport from the airport, arranging a rental car, and was there to greet us promptly on our arrival despite our early flight time (6:30AM)!
We had stayed at this property 9 years ago, and we were very impressed with how well everything has been maintained in pristine condition despite the passage of time. Everything in the unit was clean and functional. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and equipped with all appliances, dishware, cooking utensils, etc.
The covered porch overlooking the gardens and the beach is perfect for relaxing afternoons, and the close proximity to the beach is wonderful.
We had our 86 yr-old mother with us, and we especially appreciated the easy access to/from the unit - from the front drop-off area it is only a couple of very small easy steps to walk right into the unit, and our Mom had no issues whatsoever.
We would highly recommend Chaconia to anyone looking for a quiet, luxurious villa stay on a gorgeous, quiet Tobago beach!
We certainly hope to be back - and hope it will not be nine years lapse this time!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, the owners and myself are very proud of Chaconia and we love it when our guests have an enjoyable holiday with us. It was such a pleasure to meet you all and we do hope that you do not take 9 years to come and see us again, that is way too long to stay away from the lovely island of Tobago!
Peacefully Remote yet close to Everything you need
Our family of four spent four nights visiting from the U.S. The property is clean and well maintained. The property is on the beach but protected behind a locked gate. It is within walking distance of two restaurants that are both very good (opinion from a New Orleans native). Black Rock is about 18-24 minute easy drive from the airport. It gets dark and quiet early. No real night club scene but the restaurant bars were just fine for us. The property manager, Liz, is great to work with and very communicative and involved in making sure you are comfortable and satisfied. The grocery store is about a 10 min drive away. Bring your best parking skills. The gated parking garage is tight.
Thank you so much for a lovely review, I am so glad you had an enjoyable time here at Chaconia Suite. I also want to thank you again for the selection of toys for my 'fur-babies' they are having so much fun with them. Chaconia is such a special place and we do hope that you will come and visit us again sometime in the future.
wonderful stay at the best beach of Tobago
We spent a week at Chaconia. The spacy appartement is directly located at a wonderful beach (very clean, swimming, snorkeling, talking to fishermen, birds (albatros)). Just after our arriving we saw small turtles running out of their nest to the ocean.
Liz was a great manager. She answered quickly if we had a quetsion. We appreciated her service filling the fridge before our arrival. We also visited the restaurants she recommended (either orally or in her short guide), which made our stay there easy and in good memory.
She also offered another appartment for the time we had to wait for our flight.
In summary we very much enjoyed our stay at Chaconia and missing so many things now while we spent the rest of our holidays in Barbados.
It was so lovely to meet you and your family and I am so glad you enjoyed your time with us. It was my pleasure to help where I could to make your stay as memorable as possible.
We would love to welcome you back again in the future and hope you have a lovely time in Barbados and have a safe journey home
My family and I recently stayed at the Chaconia suite. We had a fabulous time. The villa was impeccably clean, spacious and is modernly outfitted. The ocean views and sunset from our balcony was absolutely breath-taking. Access to the beach are a mere footpath away and we could sit and watch the kids in the pool while enjoying the ocean sounds. Access to restaurants and mini marts are within walking distance. Our stay was a fabulous one. We cannot wait to visit again. Thank you to Liz, our villa manager for making our stay at Chaconia a very memorable and comfortable one.
It was so lovely to have your family come and stay with us and I am so pleased you enjoyed it. We would love to welcome you back again in the future and you can come and enjoy some more experiences Tobago has to offer.
Best Relaxing Beach Vacation Ever
Great apartment and Liz is great, great communications and super easy to deal with.
Rodriguez car rentlas were not good to deal with so I would stick with Thrifty who are also right at the airport.
We saw Turtles laying eggs so mother nature at its finest and right outside the apartment on the beach.
Great restaurants less than 100yards, Waves and Seahorse,
Great place to relax
Many thanks for the lovely review, it was so great to see you again. I am sorry to hear about Rodriguez being difficult to deal with - I will certainly look into that as I use him quite a lot and I do not want to if they are causing problems.
Hope your travel home was easy and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Another fabulous stay
Our second time to the property and it was even better than last year. New countertops in the kitchen and we found the movies in the nook area so we enjoyed an evening of “Pirates if the Caribbean”! The hummingbirds were active off the terrace along with the largest pigeon we’ve ever seen. We snorkeled every day and saw 3 eels our last day along with the gorgeous fish. Our girls collected a huge stash of sand dollars too in the ocean.
We hope to come back before we move from the Caribbean. Thanks again for a relaxing place to stay.
Than you so much for the wonderful review and it was so lovely to see you and your family (plus one) again. I am so glad that you feel Chaconia is better than before, we do take pride in listening to guests suggestions and acting on them where we can. Also the owners are very proud of Chaconia and they like to have everything in order for when they come and enjoy their time here. so they are often bringing new things down and making changes so that it feels more like their home rather than just a rental property.
We would love to welcome you again in the future and look forward to hearing from you.
Hope you had a safe trip back
Chaconia is one of eight apartments in a beautiful Colonial styled building facing onto Grafton Beach, which is one of the best Caribbean beaches in Tobago. An easy twenty minute drive from the airport brings you to the area known as Black Rock (the name comes from the colour of the nearby rock formations). One of the top restaurants on the island (The Seahorse) is just a few minutes walk away, with many other fantastic restaurants just a short drive away. There are plenty of water based sports such as diving, snorkeling, body surfing etc. all available locally.
Other Activities: bird watching, horse riding, mountain biking, paddle boarding, bio luminescence tours, golf, turtle watching and many more.
Golf: Chaconia is close to two x 18 hole international courses (both hire clubs). The nearest (approx. 5 minutes drive away) is Mount Irvine which was carved out of the site of an old plantation, green fees are reasonable, golf buggies extra. The Plantation PGA golf course is 10 minutes away and rates are slightly more, but include shared buggies. This course runs adjacent to mangrove swamps and has spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Good club facilities and the Hotel pool is great for the non golfers in the party!
Many beautiful weddings have taken place on Grafton beach in front of our apartment, if a Tobagan wedding is your dream, then Chaconia is ideally placed for wedding guests to stay.
