About the property

3 Bdrm, 3.5 Bath Villa & Separate 1 Bdrm Apt; Pool, Golf Course & Beach Access

Petit Careme villa is the perfect choice of vacation accommodation for visitors to the beautiful Caribbean Island of Tobago.

Our villa is located in a two-acre valley surrounded by bamboo and further graced with magnificent ancient Samaan trees. We are tucked away in a peaceful secure gated community with four other lovely villas, each tastefully placed to ensure the privacy of our guests. The valley has 260 feet of golf front access with a beautiful view of the Mount Irvine Golf Course, coconut trees, and the Caribbean Sea in the distance.

Petit Careme actually consists of two spaces, which can be rented separately or together: The Main Villa, and The Apartment.



The large upper villa has 3,400 sq. ft./287 sq. metres of covered area. It has been built with tropical living in mind, large open spaces with ceiling fans throughout, and is also totally air-conditioned for your comfort if you so desire.

The villa can comfortably accommodate eight guests in 3 large bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms. In addition there is a moveable single bed available for that one extra guest if needed.

For larger groups (maximum 12), we suggest you rent both the main villa and the attached one bedroom apartment, so that everyone is absolutely comfortable. We offer a special combination rate for rental of the entire property.

The villa is child friendly supplying a crib and a portable barrier for a child's safety.

The first floor is built on the open concept: the kitchen, dining room and living room flow together in one large tastefully decorated area, where high speed internet and a modern digital cable TV system await your pleasure. The kitchen is a chef's delight, with almost everything you could need. The master suite is located on the main floor and is full self-contained, with private overhead TV. The large shaded front verandah allows you completely relax and unwind, revel in the surrounding verdant greenery, feed some lovely birds, and keep an eye on the kids as they frolic in the private jacuzzi splash pool. Sit, sip, BBQ and enjoy!

The top floor of the villa features two more bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. There is also a large open terrace which allows private sunbathing, spectacular view of sunsets and sunrises among the upper branches of the trees, and often a close-up glimpse of our many tropical birds. It’s also a great spot for a delightful barbecue under the stars!


Located beneath the main villa on the ground level, the ONE-BEDROOM apartment is large, fully air-conditioned, and very comfortable. It offers a big bedroom with 1 queen and 1 twin bed, and a pullout couch in the living room. The open concept kitchen is fully equipped, and there is of course high speed internet and a flat screen TV.

There is also a lovely big ground floor patio that looks onto the garden area, comfortably furnished for relaxing and al fresco dining.

The apartment is ideal for newly weds, small families, seniors, or physically challenged people. Max occupancy 4. Total area is 1200 sq. ft./129 sq. metres.

Apartment guests enjoy use of the large communal kidney shaped pool, smaller children's pool and entertainment facility.

About Weya

Formerly owner and manager of Allamanda at Samaan Grove, my husband Erik and I have built a reputation of trust and warm caring quality in the vacation rental arena. Our guest reviews were wonderful, and we really enjoyed making sure they had an unforgettable experience in Tobago and at our villa.

We live in Tobago (I am from Trinidad, my husband from the USA) having travelled extensively all over the world. We chose Tobago as our home, because we consider this little island a patch of paradise, and we are very happy to share our love and local knowledge with our guests.

Weya purchased this villa in 2016

Why Weya chose World

After selling our previous rental villa Allamanda late in 2014, we discovered Petit Careme in the last months of 2015 and fell in love with her old-world beauty and charm. So we decided to "adopt" Petit Careme and offer her as a vacation home to our honoured guests.

We feel that Petit Careme will attract a traveller seeking warmth, comfort, and a feeling of "Home away from home" while featuring all the essentials that make life luxurious and sweet.

What makes this villa unique

Lots of space, a charming decor throughout, great beds in all rooms and a wonderful lounging verandah complete with hammock. A private plunge pool beside the verandah so that children can easily be monitored as they frolic. Fully (and I mean fully) equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, and a lovely friendly housekeeper who keeps everything fine. Looking out from the verandah, spectacular samaan trees, beautiful landscaping, and the Mt Irvine Golf course just beyond, with the Caribbean sea shining through the trees within walking distance. Peace, quiet, serenity in a secure setting... what more could we ask for?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at Petit Careme was wonderful! The place is so peaceful and relaxing-- we didn't want to leave. No car horns, no loud music. Only the sound of nature. The villa itself is spacious, tastefully furnished and decorated. Charmaine does a great job of keeping it clean! Kudos to Wayne also for his part in keeping the grounds well landscaped. Our communications with Wendy were easy and any questions quickly answered. We have been coming to Tobago for the past 10 years and this is one of the best places we have stayed at. We will definitely be back! Thank you for everything...

Spacious, comfortable and fully supplied

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 13 were extremely comfortable and satisfied occupying the villa and apartment. My mother and Uncle, who are elderly, were easily facilitated in the ground level apartment with ramp access throughout. The property is huge and has everything you could want and more!! The housekeeper and groundsman were very accommodating, willing and pleasant. Charmaine (the housekeeper) cooked for us and it was delicious! We had an awesome stay and would definitely rent Petit Careme, for large groups, in all of our future visits to Tobago. Dealing with the property owner/agent was always professional, efficient and seamless...thank you Wendy!!!

Better than a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this villa on May 13 and stayed until June 3rd. Upon arrival I was greeted by Wayne the grounds keeper who gave me the key to the house and Let Me in. As soon as I walked in I felt at ease. As I walked around house I was happy to see that we had everything that we needed and all of the amenities were on point. I felt at home right away. My wife arrived a couple hours later and she felt the same way. We really can't say enough about the house and the property. We met Charmaine the next day while we were in the pool. She was extremely nice and very welcoming. Charmaine is a great housekeeper and a wonderful cook, she cooked for us 2 x for family and it was just simply amazing. Of couse for a fee😉?. We honestly coulndnt believe how lucky we were to have her. Then we also got to know Wayne the grounds keepper who works hard, non stop. Wayne and Charmain together are just too good to be true! Wendy the owner called and checked in every so often which was appreciated. Wendy also took the time and came by to show us some of Tobegos beautiful beaches. I highly recomend Petit Careme the best vacation decision to date.

Spacious, relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for a quiet weekend getaway. Conveniently located in Mt. Irvine in close proximity to some of Tobago's most beautiful beaches (Mt. Irvine Bay & Grafton Beach). The property was clean, well-maintained and spacious. Particularly enjoyed the hammock on the balcony with beautiful views of the surrounding greenery. The personal plunge pool/ jacuzzi is a major plus!

Perfect place to de stress and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a delightful weekend at Petit Careme. Chilling on the patio, listening to the birds happily chirping, watching the leaves of the beautiful mature trees that wrap around the property, gently sway in the wind was music for my soul.

I totally enjoyed my weekend getaway at this scenic, tranquil, well maintained property that has all the amenities you want and need to make your stay memorable.

Petit Careme is located in an expansive lush two and one half acre estate called " Tobago Villas on the Green" located in Mount Irvine, Tobago. The secure gated community borders the championship golf course at Mt Irvine Bay Hotel, with a view of the Caribbean Sea visible through the palms and other

trees on the course.

Serene and tropical, the gardens are majestically fringed by giant Samaan and Flamboyant trees, decorated with brilliant Bougainvillea, tropical palms and numerous exotic plants all of which attract the many diverse birds of Tobago.

The lower garden gate opens on to the 11th fairway of the golf course and allows our guests a comfortable ten minute walk to and from the nearby beaches.

The main villa features a private splash pool, and guests are invited to use the communal Entertainment facility, children's pool and large kidney-shaped main pool which is surrounded by tropical foliage and palm trees.

There are several lovely beaches available within 10 minutes drive of the villa, with the nearest just 4 minutes drive away.

The Mount Irvine Bay Golf Course is an award-winning, championship quality 18-hole course with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, carved out from the grounds of an old coconut plantation... to access it, just step out from the garden gate.

Surfing, snorkelling and sailing opportunities are just minutes away, and diving, boat charters are all easily accessible within a 15-20 minute drive. For the windsurfers or kite-surfers, the world famous Pigeon Point is 20 minutes away, waiting just for you. (Surfing, windsurfing, and kite-surfing are best in the winter months, when the winds and the seas are most active).

For the eco-adventurer, all manner of hikes and rainforest tours can easily be arranged, and horseback riding on the beach in Buccoo village (5 minutes drive from the villa) is a Tobago activity not to be missed.
