    Description

    Our holiday home exchange Villa has stunning views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Relax in the private pool, or the large Gazebo.

    The Villa is in an upsacle neighbourhood 5 minutes from the main town Scarborough, and 45 minutes from the airport. It is surrounded by a large porch on 3 sides, with hammocks and a beautiful view of the Atlantic. A small gate from the front of the porch goes directly to the 18x30 foot swimming pool, adjacent deck and shady coconut tree.

    On Level 1 directly from the porch is the open plan living room and dining room area with cathedral ceiling with an airy feel and superb ventilation and natural lighting. The property is well kitted out with 2 Satellite TV boxes and mobile WiFi.

    The dining table seats eight, and there is additional seating space provided by the adjacent breakfast bar. The well equipped kitchen has electric stove and oven, microwave, toaster, blender, kettle, water filter tap, refrigerator, and has crockery, utensils, and pots for easy self-catering.

    Level 2: The downstairs air-conditioned fifth bedroom/TV room has a large sofa with a fold-out double bed, and satellite TV. Opposite this room is the first of the two bathrooms, with hot shower, bidet, hand basin and toilet. A washing machine and dryer are available in the adjacent garage.

    Level 3: The house has 4 bedrooms upstairs. 2 of them have double beds, and the other 2 each have a pair of single beds. Each of these bedrooms is a separate unit, but they can be connected via a communicating door for easy access. All rooms have ceiling fans, built in cupboards, and chest of drawers; the back two are also air conditioned. The second bathroom is on this level.

    Outdoors: An added bonus to the property is a shady retreat along the stairs from the driveway leading up the hill. At the top is a large gazebo, the views of the Atlantic Ocean are awesome, allowing almost 270 degree panoramic views, with no foliage/buildings to hamper the horizon.

    The property is maintained twice weekly by the housekeeper, who will clean and provide a change of linen and towels. After you leave the housekeeper will also tidy up, so you don't have to worry about having to clean the house, its all included, but please do not leave it overly untidy.

    ****Availability: If you do not find dates on the calender that suit you please e-mail us and we will try to meet your requirements.

    Tobago is in an idyllic part of the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago. The house is  only 35 minute drive from the International airport, and  5 minutes away from the Town of Scarborough. There are several good quality reastaurants a short walk from the house. There are lots of activities and numerous beaches, a new one can be visited every day. Other sea activities include scuba diving, snorkelling,  sailing, windsurfing, or going out for boat fishing. Glass-bottom boats give tours of the nearby Buccoo reef and the Nylon Pool, and are readily available from Store Bay. Inland, there are bird watching and hiking trails, as well as visits to the historic sites of the island. Fort King George can be accessed from Bacolet Street, just before you get to Scarborough. A unique event is the Sunday School, which consists of a well attended street party at Pigeon point, frequented by both locals and tourists a must for those who enjoy a night out. The annual Jazz festival occurs around April time each year, at various locations across the island. Other unique events at this time of year are the goat and crab races, while August/September brings the annual boat races. Cuisine in Tobago is diverse with African and Indian influences modified into unique Caribbean dishes, such as curry crab and dumplings, callaloo, oil down, doubles and roti. Food is relatively inexpensive if purchased in shops frequented by locals, but will be pricier in more formal restaurants/eating places. International cuisine is available at most restaurants.
