Bedrooms 3
Space 3,400 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

3 bedroom/3 bathroom - great location for golf or beach

Mahogany Villa is situated at the prime location of Mount Irvine in 2.5 acres of landscaped tropical gardens, shared with just four other villas.

With lovely views across the award winning golf course and through palm trees to the Caribbean Sea, guests at Mahogany will enjoy the peaceful, secluded and safe environment (security gated with remote controlled access and with a resident site manager) .

Designed for open air living with a huge, shady verandah area of 80 sq metres and an upper level terrace, which comes into its own at sunset, Mahogany nestles in a beautifully maintained, yet natural, garden. The villa has a large, private plunge pool (4 x 3 metres) and shares an inviting 60 foot (20m) swimming pool, which is situated just 15 metres from villa's private garden.

The beautiful samaan trees combined with other exotic flora, attract a wide variety of beautiful birds, including hummingbirds, tanagers and mot-mots.

The living room has a soft seating zone with flat screen TV and complimentary WiFi.

There is comfortably enough dining space inside and out for 10 people with various combinations of tables/seating to choose from.

Mahogany has a fully equipped kitchen that will suit guests who may just want or a simple breakfast or others who plan to prepare substantial meals.

All three bedrooms are generously proportioned and each has its own ensuite bathroom, air conditioning and plenty of storage space. There is an additional WC situated on the ground floor.

The adjoining utility/laundry room has all the equipment necessary to cater for anyone planning to stay for 2 weeks or more.

Two of the island's beautiful, Caribbean coast beaches (Grange and Mount Irvine - please see photos) can be reached in 5 minutes by car or via a 10-15 minute stroll across the golf course, which can be accessed via the garden gate.

Keen golfers will enjoy being able to play two championship courses (both over 6,500 yards - par 72), both within easy reach of the villa. Packages are available on request and there are 3 sets of clubs at the villa (2 x men's and 1 x women's) - guests should contact the owners in advance if they wish to borrow clubs.

Although local beaches, restaurants and shops are within walking distance, a car is recommended.

The villa is an ideal location for families or groups of friends to enjoy Tobago.

About Reg and Su Roberts

My wife and I were fortunate to grow up on the beautiful Gower coast, where the views are always stunning, but the weather unpredictable to say the least. We'd become huge fans of the Indian Ocean islands (Seychelles, Maldives, Sri Lanka) before a friend recommended Tobago. We immediately fell in love with the beautiful, natural scenery, the genuinely welcoming people and the fact that this was an island that just didn't have to try too hard to be wonderful in its own right.

Reg and Su Roberts purchased this villa in 2017

Why Reg and Su Roberts chose Black Rock

After numerous wonderful holidays on Tobago, we'd given serious consideration to purchasing a base on the island. Having seen several villas during an appearance on the television show, "A Place In The Sun: Winter Sun", we also managed to find time to view other properties and Mahogany was the one that definitely ticked all boxes for us. We'd seen some lovely places, but were captivated by the ambiance of Villas On The Green.

What makes this villa unique

The Atlantic side has rugged beauty, but we definitely prefer the glorious beaches and calmer seas of Caribbean coast and the location combines the best of a natural setting with convenient access to shops and restaurants with beaches and the golf course right on the doorstep. Our initial reservation (the shared pool) has now become our biggest plus-point. When you have it to yourself (which is the case most of the time) it beats the far smaller private pools for exercise purposes, but on the occasions you do share it with other residents/guests it's great central zone to chat and share experiences.

Spectacular Villa in Tobago

  • 5 of 5

The villa was outstanding, much larger than expected. We were more than pleased with the surroundings waking up to perfect view. It had a fully functioning kitchen with all the utilities of a high standard. We had an added bonus of our private jacuzzi and access to a large swimming pool.

The overall experience was outstanding my only fault was we should have stayed longer.

The hosts, venue manager, housekeeper and grounds manager were always on hand to answer queries and all offered an excellent service.

Truly worth visiting and I plan to do several more visits there.

Owner's Response: Hi Liza, Thank you very much for writing to let us (and future guests) know about your experience at Mahogany. Liz, Germaine and Wayne work really hard to look after the guests, the villa and the grounds and they also appreciate feedback such as yours. We are so pleased that everything was to your liking and we'd love to welcome you all back whenever you plan another trip - perhaps a longer one next time! best wishes Reg & Su

Great family holiday villa in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying at this villa. Great location, only 20 mins drive from the airport. The villa is in a quiet setting but only a few minutes walk from the nearest beach (across the golf course) The golf course restaurant and bar is also walkable to get to but take a torch if you’re coming back in the dark

Lots of beaches, bars and restaurants only a short drive or taxi ride away. (Recommend Pizza Boys for a great takeaway pizza - have a beer across the road while you wait!) .

A lovely surprise that the villa has it’s own large jacuzzi pool in addition to sharing the communal pool with just another 4 villas. Only rarely anyone else using the pool at the same time as us.

All 3 of the local team (Germaine on housekeeping, Wayne on maintenance / security and Liz as local management) looked after us really well.

All the expected facilities were provided with good internet connection, books and games, tv, an excellent selection of kitchen utensils and cooking dishes etc. Plus the air conditioning was very welcome at night!

If you put out sugar water to feed the humming birds then they will come, quite amazing.

We used Hans tours to call us when they knew there were baby turtles or nesting turtles to see locally too. They picked us up to take us to nearby Turtle Beach one evening.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday :-)

"Home Sweet Home"

  • 5 of 5

Mahogany Villa is definitely one of the most comfortable and relaxing homes that we have ever stayed in. We felt 'at home' right away. Like other guests stated, even before the stay both owners, Reg and Su, and manager, Liz, were super helpful and welcoming. Germaine, the housekeeper, and Wayne, the groundsman/security guard, made you feel well taken care of and secure. 'Brownie', the security watch dog, was such a warm pet to come 'home' too. She would wag her tail and come greet us as we came home from a wonderful day of activity on the island. We absolutely loved the home! It had so many warm features, and practical items for days out, like the cooler and ice packs. Also, for days in, like books, magazines, comfortable seating, and cable tv. For evenings in, beautiful little lights around the veranda automatically came on adding a romantic ambiance. We even entertained guests who own an Italian restaurant on the island, and they loved 'our home'. Thank you so much, Reg and Su, for allowing us the wonderful opportunity to share your home. We can't wait to get back to Mahogany Villa, our new 'home away from home'! :)

Owner's Response: Dear Melissa, Thank you very much for such a lovely review. We are so pleased that you both had a great time in Tobago and felt so comfortable and relaxed at Mahogany. It really does mean a lot to us (and to the team at the villa) to know that guests enjoy their stay and that the personal touches and attention are appreciated. You can be sure that you are both more than welcome to return any time to your Tobagonian home from home! Best wishes Reg & Su

Excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks in Mahogany Villa beginning in the last few days of February. We were met at the airport by Shawn who handed over the car that we had hired from Mr Cars. Shawn very helpfully, and unexpectedly, led us to the villa in his car where we were met by Liz Sloper the Villa Manager who showed us where everything was. Liz was unobtrusively helpful throughout our stay particularly in recovering a small bag containing valuables that I had stupidly left on the pavement just outside airport arrivals.

The villa is beautifully appointed, equipped with everything that one could need. Its setting on the fringe of the golf course is superb. The large verandah looks out over the golf course and is visited by many different birds including humming birds and Mot-Mots. A short walk across the course, amongst coconut palms and other exotic trees, leads to the pretty sandy Mount Irvine beach where most days we swam and bought excellent fresh fish from a shore-side stall. The house keeper, Germaine, maintains the immaculate condition of the villa, arriving every day if asked. Wayne the gardner takes very good care of the outside of the house, the pool and the garden itself.

Tobago is a beautiful island. The pleasure of relaxing in and around the villa meant that we did not see any where near all of it. However, we very much enjoyed the classical palm fringed beaches on the Caribbean coast and our guided walk in the rain forest.

Excellent villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Mahogany Villa undoubtedly offers wonderful holiday accommodation for parties of up to six or eight adults. The house is spacious, well-furnished and very, very comfortable. What more can one ask for?

Tobago never disappoints and neither did the Mahogany Villa. It was exactly as advertised, although it far exceeded expectations. It is located about 15 minutes from the airport, is close to several grocery stores, fruit stands, restaurants, bank machines and a 10 minute walk across the golf course to the closest beach. A rental car is recommended.

It is a quiet gated property of 5 villas, with beautifully maintained grounds and a shared pool large enough to swim laps. The villa also has a small plunge pool by the verandah.

The villa itself is very well equipped, with an open style main floor with a large well stocked kitchen. There is a beautiful large master bedroom on the main floor with 2 well appointed bedrooms upstairs, all with ensuite bathrooms. Two sets of large glass double doors open from the inside to a wonderful covered verandah that looks out onto the golf course. It was nicely furnished with a dining table, comfortable loungers, chairs and my favorite, a hammock. We ate all our meals and downed a few rum punches out there, while enjoying the sunset over the golf course.

There were 2 sets of golf clubs made available to us, which we made good use of and enjoyed many hours on the neighbouring golf course.

Mt Irvine beach and Grafton Beach are both closeby. There are so many wonderful places to visit on the island, and many activities available for all ages and interests.

Liz, the property manager, was extremely attentive, and was available to make our stay as perfect as possible, only a phone call away. Germaine, the housekeeper, did a wonderful job looking after the house. Wayne, security and groundskeeper, was on the property every night and part of each day. The staff were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed.

If you are looking for a low key get-away, this is it. We were there for a month, time went too quickly and it was very difficult to leave…… a great holiday!!!

With our best wishes Reg & Su

Tobago is a world-renowned centre for divers, but there is wonderful snorkelling available straight off many beaches. For the more adventurous, boat trips to reefs/coral gardens are available at reasonable cost. Tobago is a dream destination for ornithologists with a wide variety of beautiful birds, many more common to South America than any other Caribbean islands. The Main Ridge Forest Reserve has been voted the "World's Leading Eco-Tourism destination" by the World Travel Awards on several occasions and a guided visit there is highly recommended. Beautiful flora, birds, reptiles, fascinating insects and stunning waterfalls abound. Golfers are unusually well-catered for on an island of this size, with two championship courses within minutes of the villa. Both are par 72 and over 6,500 yards off back tees. Mount Irvine is a traditionally designed, almost links-like course that meanders through palm trees. Past winners of Tournaments there include Tony Jacklin, Ronan Rafferty and Stephen Ames. The newer, Tobago Plantations, course has been designed more along US resort course lines, with water hazards on 11 holes. It has hosted Seniors tour competitions. Golf packages are available on request.
