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.
Like a lot of other folk, we arrived after dark, having been picked up at the airport by Taylors, who also stopped for us at the shops on the way. This is wise as there aren't too many bigger shops around (although Castara supermarket isn't bad). We just got the basics for that evening and breakfast, but with a bit of planning probably should have got more of the basics. Jeep was already at the property, and you do need it, as the track up is fairly steep and uneven in places. Woken early by the birds, which for us was part of the reason to be there. My first hummingbird was in the kitchen whilst preparing breakfast! The place itself is amazing, with excellent facilities, especially in the outdoor decking and pool area, and the view is exceptional - we'll really miss hanging out there watching the many species of bird and butterfly, most of which are exotic to us, and cooling off in the pool. Trevor is very amenable, and gives you as much or as little time and advice as you need, and his groundsman Ranger is also very helpful, but again unintrusive (he gave us various fruits from around the grounds, and showed us a few other plants). At night it is very peaceful, and with the windows open giving a nice breeze, we didn't need to use the fans. All in all, if you are into nature and being away from it all, but still want access to nice beaches and occasional nightlife, this is paradise. Choices of beach include Englishman's Bay (our fav), Castara, Parlatuvier and Bloody Bay, and the 'nightlife' I refer to is Castara, the nearest main place for eateries and other entertainment (20min drive). And make sure you get out into the forest, at least with a guide to start with - we went with a certified guide called Fitzroy who was brilliant, and took us on a 4 hour walk. Speyside is still nearly an hour's drive, but a must for Little Tobago, and the accessible reef there. This part of the island is fabulous for the more rustic and nature-loving types, as it's greener and hillier than the south west - if you want partying probably best to stay nearer Crown Point. All the people we met were just lovely and so friendly, and despite what some night have read, we felt safe and secure even on the secluded beaches like Englishman's Bay. And coming back to this property always felt like a real privilege, with the resident nightjars and bats. Thanks very much Trevor, love what you've created there!
