At 'Hibiscus Heights' each living area or self-contained rental unit has a telephone, wireless access, cable TV, a lock-box for valuables, house-keeping included, and all kitchens are fitted and equipped with modern appliances and utensils. There are overhead fans in every room; split level air-conditioning units have also recently been installed in all the bedrooms, for those who just can't sleep without it. This is an ideal setting, not to mention the most economical choice, for large groups who want to be close but at the end of the day still have their own space.
Why has Tobago been hailed worldwide as a premiere 'eco-tourism' destination?
Well, Tobago is not a volcanic island like most of the other Caribbean islands. Once a part of South America, many of the same species of plants and animals found on that continent abound here. So - whether you're biking or 'booting it' through Tobago's majestic rain forests, strolling along one of the island's many sanctuary trails, or simply reflecting amidst the radiant colors of Scarborough's well-groomed Botanic Gardens - you'll see: beautiful beaches are only a small part of what this tropical isle has to offer.
Its exquisite reefs are home to an explosion of marine life, making the best diving and snorkeling experiences frequent happenings in and around Tobago's waters.
Since 1776, the island's Main Ridge Forest Reserve has been legally protected, making it the first tropical rainforest to be legally protected in the western hemisphere.
Tobago is one of the few places left in the world to which six species of endangered and 'critically' endangered sea turtles return, each spring, to lay their eggs.
Yes ... Islanders really have every right to be proud. But boastful? Never! Tobagonians are far too modest, a truly happy-go-lucky people who have become so used to sharing their home with visitors that they know how to be welcoming without being intrusive.
Warning, Warning: the pace here is relaxed, far from frantic, with people actually taking the time to wish you a good morning and 'night'. Be prepared, yet rest assured: Tobago is also a place where you will find most of your back-home favorites, plus fine wines and premium alcohol, in the larger grocery stores.
Description of units available for long or short-term rental:
ON THE TOP LEVEL - offering spacious living for six people, this impressive three-bedroom, two-bath villa has a huge wrap-around verandah (over 125 ft.) for viewing the turquoise sea, and old-time wooden shutters with high ceilings for catching the warm breezes.
The large and airy master bedroom has a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, and en-suite bathroom. The other two guest bedrooms have queen-sized beds, high ceilings, and are also quite roomy. All beds are four-poster - very romantic - with firm mattresses for many restful sleeps.
There is an open living/dining area and the kitchen is immaculate.
All rooms are tastefully decorated, many pieces of furniture having been hand-made by craftsmen in the region.
There is a swimming pool at the back, surrounded by a sun-terrace, to which guests of this top villa have exclusive access. Set off the kitchen and equipped with a comfy patio set and loungers, it is ideal for al fresco dining after dark.
ON THE SECOND/GROUND LEVEL - there are two self-contained apartments - a spacious artist's studio; the other, the one-bedroom apartment, has a fantastic seaview.
Separate Accommodation on property also available: A cozy self-contained cottage sits snuggled in its own mini banana plantation, a perfect honeymoon suite. Especially since booking 'Hibiscus Heights' as a whole unit would certainly leave you lots to spend on a Caribbean reception. Why not go for one of those 'theme' weddings -- underwater, maybe? -- which have recently become so popular and that are now being offered in the area?
