We loved Tobago and after our third annual holiday there bought our villa. As we were only able to use it a couple of times a year we decided to share it with others in the hope that they would get pleasure from it also - and to help cover the maintenance costs!
Most of our family have now stayed there and everyone gets something different out of Tobago - my brother who always has to be doing something mostly golf and sailing, our eldest daughter who loves diving and has just been wreck diving in there, our youngest who needed peace and quiet for her dissertation and friends who just sat by the pool to recuperate and read -but all have said it is like a home from home.
Maggie Spencer purchased this apartment in 2003
Tobago is the Carribean unspoilt just 8 hours from Gatwick on a direct flight.
Tobago has the oldest rainforest in the Western Hemisphere to explore, bird life like nowhere else, you can buy fish off the beach direct from the Fishermen and life is generally at a gentle pace.
Our villa overlooks the 5th Green of a championship golf course yet is 5 mins walk to the beach plus has all the facilities of the hotel on the resort.
Recently our family have been kitesurfing off the beach, paddle boarding in the lagoon all on our doorstep.
Latest addition to entertainment is Bioluminesence tours with the Kenny boys which was amazing to see and a fun evening.
This has been a fantastic experience from start to finish. Maggie (owner) responded immediately to my booking request, and was helpful throughout the entire process. Her attention to detail gave me confidence to book this holiday. The villa surpassed all our expectations. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped......home from home. Jenelle Forbes (local contact) was superb, helpful, kind and courteous. The Plantations is a great area, it is well maintained, and getting up every morning was a sheer delight and pleasure. The area is safe and secure, and easily accessible to the beautiful beaches and attractions in Tobago. There is nothing I could fault about this villa and I cannot wait to return. Our visitors were suitably impressed with the accommodation. Thank you Maggie for allowing us to share your wonderful Tobago home. We will definitely be back. Pat Poinen
What a fabulous place, exactly as it was described, booked both upstairs and downstairs had a fantastic 2 weeks, will definitely book again, thank you Maggie for helping us make our son`s 18th birthday so memorable
During a recent vist to Trinidad, I was invited by my nephew for a 3-day visit to Tobago. We stayed at this butiful villa which had all the accomodations our group of 8 could possibly need. The villa was spacious, clean and fully equipped. We had a great time at this villa and I cannot wait to go back there again!
This beautiful villa is set within a stunning golf course and grounds, right on the 5th green, providing some entertaining moments while sunbathing on the decking & relaxing in the pool.
We played golf twice & what a fantastic course! with holes that go right out in to the Atlantic! Very well kept course requiring a lot of different shots to negotiate the lakes, coconut trees and mangroves.
Some evenings we would walk to the back of the 5th green and watch the sun go down, we also strolled along the paths through the grounds to see the sea crashing against the rocks and to pop into one of the bars or restaurants that the hotel has to offer (a short walk from the villa).
Tobago surpassed expectations, everyone was so helpful and friendly, we had cocktails at sunset in Stonehaven villas, Lobster in the Seahorse (my favourite), Steak from the meat farm that we cooked at the villa on the BBQ and found a great little Italian called La Tartaruga in Buccoo.
The villa is very well set out and equipped. New Direct TV was installed in all the rooms with lots of channels to chose from and great picture quality.
It's was our first time in Tobago and we loved it! It was great to go out and explore places like Englishman's Bay and try out the local restaurants in the evening and then return to this lovely villa (via the hotel cocktail bar) in beautifully kept grounds and waking up in such a relaxing atmosphere!
Simply stunning........ will be back for more!

On arrival, we were greeted by warm and friendly staff who oriented us about the surroundings. The landscape with all its beautiful flowers lends an air of tranquility,a oneness with nature which put us in a relaxed mood.The Villa was well equipped with everything we needed for the duration of our stay.The golf course was an added attraction and was well maintained. Although we came for the Jazz Festival, we spent a lot of time just basking at the poolside.However the TV needs upgrading because it showed fuzzy all the time and the men folk could not enjoy the sports channel.We would certainly recommend this Villa to our friends and family and cannot wait to return.
Everything was fine from beginning to end. We had the downstairs of the villa. The villa was lovely and clean and exactly at described and we could not have asked for anything more.
We were two couples and there was everything we needed, so much so that when we went out we couldn't wait to get back and enjoy the pool, villa and surrounding area. Maggie the owner passed on loads of really useful tips. Curtis, who Maggie recommended for car hire, was really helpful. We enjoyed buying the beautiful fresh fish from the local fisherman.
All told an absolutely fabulous place and for us it was exactly what we wanted.
Sorry this review is late.
