Villa 66 is a new (August 2015) 4 bedroom 4 bath rental villa with private pool 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. 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 large and spacious Great Room, porch, pool deck, and side terrace 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 4 vehicles in the parking area.
With its 4 bedrooms and 4 ensuite bathrooms, 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 are two master bedrooms with King beds, and the other 2 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, custom kitchen cabinetry, European style walk-in showers with tempered 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 choice of a 10-seater dining set in the dining area, or a 8-seater outdoor dining set on the porch. 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 an island/bar with 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, convection toaster oven, 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 timber and glass doors. Even the wall dividers to the porch and terrace are fully glassed, making the interior bright and airy, and allowing guests inside the house to see everything that is going on in the porch, terrace, 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. Four poolside loungers are provided for relaxing on the pool deck or even in the cool water of the swimming pool.
The large 12' x 30' 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. In the living area, there is a 48' flat screen TV with a Blu Ray DVD player which is great for keeping the kids happy.
If you desire privacy while on the porch or poolside, the backyard looks out onto one of the lakes with undeveloped land beyond. Privacy screens on the wall adjoining the villa next door, and a high wall on the other side means that you will not have any privacy concerns while at the villa.
Each bath shower area is fully walk-in, with tempered 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.
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/kitchen area has a ceiling fan and 2 split air conditioners. The porch is not left out, as there are 2 ceiling fans 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. A tankless water heater means you will never run out of hot water. Two 800 gallon water storage tanks also mean that you will not experience any water shortage.
Samaan Grove is a gated development, with a 7/24 hour guard at the entry, 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 very 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, and Mt Irvine 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.
