About Sandra

This house and land is my 'Caribbean Dream'. I arrived in Tobago 16 years ago. A city woman from London, UK. Fell in love with this beautiful Island and built my cottage and the villa on the land I love. The staff are honest, reliable and kind- hearted people. They make sure our guests feel like family coming home.

Why Sandra chose Black Rock

I bought the land 'in the bush', no water or electric, no houses in sight. The land showed me what and how to build and the rains cut the land just the way it needed to be. Perfect. Truly my Piece of Paradise.

What makes this villa unique

The views are spectacular, the land rich, bountiful and stunningly beautiful.

If you are a 'twitcher' (bird lover) then it is the ideal location to see many species, all beautiful especially the hummingbirds.

The land backs onto the bird sanctuary, they know no borders!

Christmas 2011

Review Submitted: January 8, 2012 Date of Stay: December 2011

A superb location and most enjoyable stay. The gardens and views from here are wonderful. The house itself is more than adequate to the task of sleeping up to eight adults and although a few bits and pieces are suffering from tropical decline, it is still a slice of Eden . We had a great day on Christmas Day 2011 and my crew all enjoyed the day immensely. Isador who looks after the garden and Heather who looks after the house are to be commended. Sandra the owner lives just next door and nothing was too much trouble to make her guests feel at home. You WILL need a vehicle capable of traversing the somewhat rough bit of road leading to the villa, but one of the island's TERIOs will suffice admirably at about 350 TT's per day.

Tobago is at your feet and the whole island is reachable easily from this location. Airport is only 20 mins away and supermarket at Canaan only 10 min down the road.

Nearby restaurants that were worthwhile we're The Pavillion, The Seahorse and The Fishpot the latter of which is run by Erica and her daughter and is cheap and cheerful with tasty but relaxed grub. As a crew , we would normally stay at Coco Reef Hotel but this was a special stopover across the Xmas period and we are glad we booked the Pinkhouse.

Thanks Sandra.

stunning views and the perfect hidden getaway....

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most magical 11 days in Tobago and at Mahogany Ridge. The 360° views are better than the photos suggest - you can't turn a corner or open a curtain without a 'wow' moment. Waking up to the sound of tropical birds, and washing up to the scent of limes became addictive and life in rainy grey England is really proving hard to come back to! The house is light and airy, the beds are comfortable, the living area is relaxing and the kitchen is functional. The outside area however is the most beautiful, calming and welcoming space - an abundance of wildlife, a gorgeous pool and plenty of areas to eat and enjoy a gin and tonic with a view! Our kids loved the pool and would happily have spent the entire holiday in it - had it not been for the incredible beaches, 4 of which are within a 10 min drive. Each one a treat! The locals are wonderful, and we found plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy. Sandra was helpful and accommodating at every part of the process -booking restaurants and offering advice for us and was available to answer lots of silly questions in the run up! Greta and Liz Ann, the manager housekeeper were such warm and lovely ladies - nothing too much trouble!. We felt safe despite being relatively secluded. If you like your holidays unspoilt, un touristy and beautifully tranquil then Tobago is the island for you and Mahogany Ridge a real find. We can't wait to return!!!!

The place was even more beautiful then the pictures you see on Homeaway

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this place beautiful but the road to it made it mysterious and exciting. It only took a few minutes to get to the beach or restaurants making this beautiful place convenient to all. Sandra's buddies Heather and Margaret were my island girls that helped out with anything we needed. Margaret Had a chicken stew dinner ready when we arrived that tasted amazing. No doubt we will be back. Thanks for the memories.

Quiet with birdsong all day

  • 5 of 5

This is a villa away from it all for soulful people, dreamers, all those weary of the demands of this modern world, all those longing to be away from the trivia of everyday life in the big cities and markets of the world crowded with buyers and sellers of so much rubbish. So this is not a villa for just anyone. It is up a hill on a well-paved, rather narrow, winding road, and rather isolated. I would not recommend driving out a night. Otherwise, for a small family party or a group of friends, it would be just perfect. The villa is vey well laid out and in excellent condition of maintenance and housekeeping. We enjoyed our stay.

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house! The views are breathtaking, specially from the master suite! Plenty of furniture by the veranda allowed us to hang out and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner outside enjoying the sound of nature and views. Inside the house, everything is comfortable and clean! The rooms are big with their own bathrooms. The master bathroom is huge! Outside, everything is beautiful. Beautiful garden, trees with fruit! We picked a few limes and mangos that were juicy and delicious. The pool area is another amazing and relaxing space in the property.

We enjoyed our stay there. Sandra was a great host, and her staff (Heather and Margaret) were amazing in helping us set up. In short, I'd recommend this property to family and friends, and definitely would come back again.

Can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

Who spends a sunny, blue-skied day in Black Rock, Tobago holed up in a rental?

We do, evidently.

Mahogany offers so many thoughtful spaces for doing nothing. First there is the airy upstairs bedroom with its wrap around verandah, offering views of both forest and ocean. Just the way the breeze whipped through the upper floor windows made us feel like staying in bed and looking at the birds. (How's that for something you don't do every day??!!)

Then there is the hammock on the back porch, the pool overlooking the garden, the thoughtfully-designed living area... enough distractions for the children not to mind staying in a couple days.

The vacation touches are balanced with utility--a full capacity washer and dryer, a well-equipped kitchen (with a lovely, new convection oven), separate full baths for every bedroom and a powder room for guests.

We'd planned on heading to Castara/Parlatuvier a couple times. Instead we spent most of our week sunning and soaking at the nearby beaches, only too happy to return to our pastel "home" for dinner, cards and a drink. Can't wait to return to do more nothing!!!!!!!!!

The airport at Crown Point is 20 mins. Scarborough 15mins. Black Rock 5 mins. Beaches Caribbean 5 mins Golf, Horse riding, Fishing, Diving, all within approx 5 - 15 minutes

The Prospect Estate was a Coconut Plantation and the original owner started to sell off some land some 25 - 30 years ago. Many coconut trees remain and as the nut falls it takes root and just grows anew. The land is rich and fertile and abundant. The grounds of the Pink House on Mahogany Ridge are full of lush tropical fruit trees, plants and flowers. A birdwatchers paradise, we bound with the famous Grafton Bird Sanctuary. Intrepid explorers can cut a path through some bush to walk down to the beautiful beaches through the bird sanctuary. A delightful experience. (in dry season only)

Other Activities: 5 Mins from Golf Course

Golf: There are 2 golf courses in Tobago. Mt Irvine International, just 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Plantation Golf Course, 10 minutes drive.

Lessons available.
