About Patricia Campbell
I am a Trinidadian who grew up in San Fernando. I left to attend the University of Florida and then attended Johnson and Wales University where I earned degrees in Pastry Arts and in Food Service Management. I was a pastry chef in Florida and in Tennessee and returned to Trinidad to live after having lived in the United States for 14 years.
Patricia Campbell purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Patricia Campbell chose Canaan
After vacationing in Samaan Grove last year I decided to purchase a villa there because of the peace and quiet and the easy accessibility to beaches. I try to make it to Tobago every chance I get. It is a fantastic place to get away from the day to day hustle and bustle of Trinidad. My children also love to go to Tobago as they enjoy snorkeling and the beaches. Villa Colibri was built in 2011 and as soon as I walked in to view it I knew I could live there. I bought it with the intention of maybe moving there once I retire and knew that the house would be comfortable.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Colibri is close to conveniences such as pharmacies and grocery stores but is in a neighborhood that is safe, guard-gated and quiet. The neighborhood backs up on a preserve and native birds such as the bananaquit and hummingbirds can be seen flitting around the flowers in the garden. The national bird, the cocrico, lives in the preserve and can be heard in the early mornings and seen as they hop from tree to tree. Samaan Grove is the only neighborhood with land-side access to No Man's Land. The drive to No Man's Land is through the preserve and is an adventure. It is a journey through Mangrove and field during which you can see hundreds of fiddler crabs and a myriad birds. If you are lucky you might see other wildlife. it is a dirt track so a 4x4 vehicle is advisable.
Pool / Spa
It was cozy
The place had a great ambience. The pool was perfect for the kids it seemed to have a heater cause it was never cold so we enjoyed it at nights and there were toys to keep the kids active
First impression was a Wow experience, this place is beautiful.
Some small points to check, the piece to pull up for shower in the master bedroom was slack so couldn't stay up properly.
First day the Master bedroom had crushed Skittles stuck to the sheet. Maybe it was washed with the Skittles.
Minor points but would love to come again
Thank you for your great review. I will let housekeeping know about the sheets. Unfortunately, the shower diverter had to be held in position until the water pressure builds up enough to keep it in place. It is one of the issues that we have had in Tobago. I will certainly let the handyman see if we can adjust it again. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again in the near future.
We enjoyed the quite peaceful ambience and the security of the location.
Your home is beautiful, clean and the privacy was welcomed. My children loved the pool and did not want to go out, not even to the beach. We will recommend to our friends.
We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our stay so Villa Colibri. We look forward to hosting you the next time you visit Tobago.
Very well kept and up to date.
First I want to state, I planned my first trip out of the US for close to four months and I am more than happy that I chose this villa! Not only was the home equipped with everything that you would need but the owner of the property was available for me at all times. I would highly recommend that you choose this property for your Tobago location it is not far from the airport and best places to be but it also is located on a very secure private gated community. The security ladies were wonderful, very pleasant and welcoming. I have zero complaints and I am already planning my next trip. During my trip everyone on the island was very polite and helpful! again I highly recommend this Villa for your stay. Thank you Patricia!!
A marvelous vacation
The property was very comfortable with everything you will need. It was basically a "home away from home" It comes equipped with everything even games, videos and cards. It was spacious and created an open atmosphere in the living, dining and pool areas with adequate comfort and privacy for the three bedrooms. Close proximity to shopping and the Crown Point and Pigeon Point areas was a bonus. Because it is a gated community you feel very safe and secure.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again in the near future.
great house for friends and family
Colibri is a newly-built 3 BR villa in the upscale, 24 hour guard-gated neighborhood of Samaan Grove. Guests can relax in a private, secure, peaceful environment while still being close to the conveniences of everyday life. It is centrally located approximately 10 minutes from the airport and some of the most popular beaches. Pennysavers, one of the largest grocery stores in the area is only 4 minutes away making it convenient to stock up on supplies for your stay. The Mount Irvine golf course is a only a short drive away. Nearby Pigeon Point Beach is very popular for relaxing in one of their on beach shelters or for windsurfing, kite-surfing and jet skiing. There is even a small playground at the beach for the little ones. An added significant benefit is land-side access to No Man's Land, a small secluded strip of beach protected on one side by Buccoo Reef, making it fairly safe for non-swimmers. (Access to No Man's Land from land side now costs $200TT per vehicle. This is a charge imposed by the community and is not controlled by us). Please note that Google maps is showing an inaccurate map. The house is actually close to the Bon Accord Lagoon.
