Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Tobago - Nature Retreat Tobago
Nestled in the foothills of Tobago's Nature Forest Reserve, where walks through the old coco plantation are filled with lush flora and interesting fauna. A photographer´s dream with its private waterfall. A stroll to the beach takes 15mins.
Take a soak in the blue Caribbean Sea or just hang around the deck with the royal palms and roll into the coolest rainwater pool ever. You compete with the birds for first pick of the fruit that abound, bananas ,pawpaw, sapodilla, guava ,coconuts

Guestbook comments from the owner
My family including two kids, age 12 & 15, stayed at Rainbow Lodge for 3 weeks,Aug-Sept,2012.
We had a most fantastic time,Trevor ,the owner, was so welcoming and all his friends were a delight to meet.
We were taken into the Rainforest and fishing out at sea, all through Trev`s contacts.
The Lodge itself is beautiful, it is well maintained and the views are stunning, looking out to the Caribbean Sea across the rainforest .
We had some tasty meals out, to be honest we would quite happily have stayed at the villa and not travel out, as lying in the hammock by the pool could have been enough.
A walk down to the waterfall is just lovely through the old cocoa estate.
We would not hesitate to recommend this villa, which is away from the hustle and bustle of the the more touristy parts of the island, to any one thinking of a beautiful Caribbean ,Tobago holiday, we give Rainbow Lodge 5 stars.
We come away with wonderful memories and a wish to return.
Mike, Pam and the Kids
