About Reg and Su Roberts
My wife and I were fortunate to grow up on the beautiful Gower coast, where the views are always stunning, but the weather unpredictable to say the least. We'd become huge fans of the Indian Ocean islands (Seychelles, Maldives, Sri Lanka) before a friend recommended Tobago. We immediately fell in love with the beautiful, natural scenery, the genuinely welcoming people and the fact that this was an island that just didn't have to try too hard to be wonderful in its own right.
Reg and Su Roberts purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Reg and Su Roberts chose Black Rock
After numerous wonderful holidays on Tobago, we'd given serious consideration to purchasing a base on the island. Having seen several villas during an appearance on the television show, "A Place In The Sun: Winter Sun", we also managed to find time to view other properties and Mahogany was the one that definitely ticked all boxes for us. We'd seen some lovely places, but were captivated by the ambiance of Villas On The Green.
What makes this Villa unique
The Atlantic side has rugged beauty, but we definitely prefer the glorious beaches and calmer seas of Caribbean coast and the location combines the best of a natural setting with convenient access to shops and restaurants with beaches and the golf course right on the doorstep. Our initial reservation (the shared pool) has now become our biggest plus-point. When you have it to yourself (which is the case most of the time) it beats the far smaller private pools for exercise purposes, but on the occasions you do share it with other residents/guests it's great central zone to chat and share experiences.

Beautiful Villa on a Beautiful Island
What can I say, this villa was absolutely stunning! The kitchen and dining area opened up onto an amazing patio with a view to the shared pool and golf course. The master bedroom downstairs was huge and the two bedrooms up stairs were very comfortable. Liz, the property manager, was so helpful, going out of her way to assist us. She even drove to come find us when we got lost on our way from the airport.
We were devastated when we had to cut our trip short due to the Coronavirus outbreak. But Liz came immediately when we texted her saying that our Saturday night flight had been canceled and we had to leave immediately to catch the last flight out of the country.
Reg, the owner, was so flexible, that he emailed me the next day offering to refund 50% of the cost, since we only stayed 2 out of the 4 days.
We can't wait to go back and actually get to enjoy this beautiful villa. We will be back.
So glad we chose Mahogany Villa!
We were pleased that the setting (inside and out) looked exactly like the pictures. In addition to the small, private, jacuzzi-type pool directly off the veranda, there is a larger communal pool (as shown in listing photo) shared by 5 other units. We were pleasantly surprised that many times during our 2 week stay, our group of 6 adults had the communal pool to ourselves. Although groceries, beaches and restaurants are only a short ride away (i.e., 10 minutes - strongly recommend taxi and/or private driving services), the location of the villa made for a quiet, peaceful getaway. From our check-in (arranging airport transportation; picking up basic groceries; meeting us on-site) to departure, Liz (Property Manager) made sure that everything ran smoothly. We will definitely consider booking here again. Many thanks for a great vacation and first-time visit to Tobago!
Thank you very much for such a positive and informative review. Su and I are delighted that you and your group had such a pleasant stay at a place that's dear to our hearts. I'll pass on your kind words to Liz.
A fantastic villa - couldn’t have asked for anything better - private pool and use of large communal pool 10m away, AC in all the bedrooms, the quiet location yet near Crown Point and the very attentive housekeeper and Liz the property manager who was just great! A wonderful way to revisit Tobago after a 20 year gap! Thank you Su and Reg :-)
We are delighted that you had such a great time in Tobago an enjoyed the villa and the grounds. I'll be sure to pass on your kind words to Liz and Germaine, who take great pride in looking after our guests. You'd be most welcome to return any time - perhaps less than a 20 year gap next time!

First Trip to Tobago
Mahogany Villa is one of 5 in a gated community and if you want to relax it is the perfect villa. If you have got children with you, it is safe for them to explore the area around the villa.
The villa is well equipment for all your needs and is larger inside than it looks. In the warm evening it makes a great place to relax on the veranda looking out west over the golf course with a drink or 2 and watch the sunset.
The owner Reg is only a email away and responds very quickly to your queries and would make a very good tour guide with his knowledge of the Island. The management company, Liz and Judi were very helpful. When we return to Tobago we will make Mahogany Villa our choice of accommodation to stay again. Homeaway only allows you to give the maximum 5 star. In our opinion, we would give it 10 stars for everything if we could.
Not to forget both the house keeper, Germaine and Wayne, the grounds man, together they ensured our stay was seamless and offered an excellent service.
The car hire company, Mr. Cars, recommended by the owners, were first class. Mervyn met us at the airport and drove us to the villa which was only about 15 minute drive from the airport.
Thanks again Reg and Su for opening your Tobago home so your guests can have a great holiday, Lesley and Phil. February 2019.
Thank you very much for leaving such a wonderful review. We've passed your comments on to the team at the villa and they've all said what a pleasure it was to have the two of you as guests. We never take for granted how fortunate we are to have such dedicated people taking so much pride in their work to keep the villa in top condition and look after our guests.
We are delighted that your stay was so enjoyable and would love to welcome you back one day.

Amazing place can’t wait to go back
What a fabulous place to unwind. We were met at the airport by Mervyn our recommended car hire man by the owners and after a short drive we were greeted by the staff who were so friendly and helpful. The villa was amazing with a quiet tucked away feel but with just a short drive you had supermarkets and fantastic beaches and bars with spectacular scenery. The place was immaculate and very traditional tobagan. The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer, can’t wait to go again
Thanks very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are delighted that you had such a great experience at the villa and around the island in general. We really love the times we spend there and are truly pleased to hear that guests have a great time. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Tobago is a world-renowned centre for divers, but there is wonderful snorkelling available straight off many beaches. For the more adventurous, boat trips to reefs/coral gardens are available at reasonable cost. Tobago is a dream destination for ornithologists with a wide variety of beautiful birds, many more common to South America than any other Caribbean islands. The Main Ridge Forest Reserve has been voted the "World's Leading Eco-Tourism destination" by the World Travel Awards on several occasions and a guided visit there is highly recommended. Beautiful flora, birds, reptiles, fascinating insects and stunning waterfalls abound. Golfers are unusually well-catered for on an island of this size, with two championship courses within minutes of the villa. Both are par 72 and over 6,500 yards off back tees. Mount Irvine is a traditionally designed, almost links-like course that meanders through palm trees. Past winners of Tournaments there include Tony Jacklin, Ronan Rafferty and Stephen Ames. The newer, Tobago Plantations, course has been designed more along US resort course lines, with water hazards on 11 holes. It has hosted Seniors tour competitions. Golf packages are available on request.
