Flamingo Villa Tobago (built in April 2017) accommodates up to 14 guest
Flamingo Villa is a brand new (April 2017) 4 bedroom 4 1/2 bath rental villa with private pool that accommodates up to 14 guests. it is located in the peaceful, safe, secure and very popular Samaan Grove gated development. The well-groomed surroundings and the lakes make the environment very park-like, and guests will enjoy the very quiet, private and peaceful surroundings. The villa is specifically designed to be a high quality, spacious luxury holiday retreat.
It is ideal for groups of friends to hang out together, family reunions, or multi-family group holidays. No detail has been overlooked, and no compromises have been made on the build quality, finishes and furnishings. At 2500 square feet, even large groups will not feel cramped at any time. The spacious Great Room, porch and pool deck allows everyone to spread out and find their own space for relaxing. Attention has even been given to parking for larger groups - there is enough parking space for up to 3 vehicles in the parking area.
With its 4 bedrooms, 4 ensuite bathrooms and a separate Powder Room, holidaying groups will have much greater flexibility using the sleeping accommodations compared to smaller 3 bedroom villas. The villa is ideally suited for 4 couples or 2 or 3 families with children. There is a master bedroom with King bed, and the other 3 bedrooms have 2 Queen beds each.
This is a premium quality villa, with quality features such as full gypsum tray or bulkhead ceilings throughout, porcelain tile floors, extensive recessed lighting, fully trimmed with ceiling, window, door and floor mouldings, and painted in vibrant Caribbean colours. The feeling that you will experience is one of calm, tasteful elegance. High grade finishes and furnishings include stainless steel kitchen appliances, granite kitchen counter tops, European style walk-in showers with laminated glass panels for safety, rain shower heads for luxurious bathing, full air conditioning everywhere including the Great Room, and leather upholstered sofas.
For dining, you have a 10-seater dining set in the dining area, a 6-seater outdoor dining set on the porch, and a 4 seat snack bar adjoining the kitchen. The porch is furnished with outdoor conversation furniture and a dining set for relaxing, or al fresco dining using the large gas grill provided.
The kitchen has a snack bar with 4 bar stools for enjoying casual snacks or after beach/after pool drinks, and is open to the living and dining areas to create a bright, airy and roomy space to relax and enjoy your Tobago holiday. The kitchen has all the small appliances guests would normally expect: electric kettle, coffeemaker, toaster, and blender for smoothies, slushes and margaritas. Major kitchen appliances are all stainless steel: smooth-top electric stove, side by side fridge with ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, and a combination range hood/microwave. For casual cooking and eating, what would be better than to throw some ribs, steaks, chicken or mahi mahi on the large BBQ gas grill?
The living and dining area connects to the porch and a side terrace via sliding glass doors. Even the wall dividers to the porch and great room, making the interior bright and airy, and allowing guests inside the house to see everything that is going on in the porch, swimming pool or pool deck. This is especially reassuring for parents who want to keep a close eye on their children who might be on the pool deck or in the pool, even from inside the villa. Five poolside loungers are provided for relaxing on the pool deck or even in the cool water of the swimming pool. There is also a poolside table with sun umbrella and chairs if you wanted to have your snacks or drinks on the pool deck.
The large 12' x 28' swimming pool has been planned for guests' full enjoyment and relaxation: it is large enough for big groups; there are 3 different depths - 18' which is perfect for small children to bathe safely (although adults also love to put their loungers in this part of the pool so they can tan while staying nice and cool), 32' for older children, and 52' in the deep end which even non-swimming adults can enjoy. There is of course a large gas BBQ grill which is available for guest use. For privacy while poolside, the pool area is shielded by high front and side walls as well as a privacy screen.
In the living area, there is a 46” flat screen TV with a Blu Ray DVD player which is great for keeping the kids happy. You will be able to relax on a leather sofa and love seat while watching your favourite movies or sports on the flat screen TV. With Digicel Play service for TV and WiFi, anyone with a smartphone or tablet can independently watch shows while anywhere in WiFi range.
Each bath shower area is fully walk-in, with laminated glass panels for safety and rainshower heads for luxurious bathing. The open showers also mean that mobility challenged guests are accommodated, as there is no ledge for them to have to step over or a shower stall door to maneouvre past.
Guests' comfort is assured at all times: each bedroom is air conditioned with a split AC unit for quiet operation, as well as a ceiling fan for those who prefer to sleep without AC. The Great Room living/dining area has a ceiling fan and 2 split air conditioners. Even the kitchen has a ceiling fan, and there is a ceiling fan on the porch for use whenever the breezes die out.
No detail has been spared. There is a full sized clothes washer and dryer in the laundry room, and a steam iron/ironing board should you need them. Two 1000 gallon water storage tanks also mean that you should not experience any water shortage.
Samaan Grove is a gated development, with a 7/24 hour guard at the entry, and both daytime and night-time patrols. Guests will love the peaceful and quiet ambiance of the development. The groomed empty lots and lakes give the area a very park-like feeling. Bird watchers will enjoy seeing the varieties of birds in the development, especially the ones that are drawn to the lakes. If you are lucky, you might catch a rare sighting of one of the very shy Caimans that live in the lakes, or see an Anhinga (an underwater swimming bird) stick its head above water with a fish in its beak, toss it then catch it head first to swallow it, before ducking back underwater to look for more fish to catch.
The development is not within walking distance to beaches, but is very close by car: Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Mt Irvine and Canoe Bay beaches are all within 6-9 minutes drive. The airport is 6-8 minutes away, and the Port of Scarborough is about 12-14 minutes away.
