Rica Iltatfe from Austria visited in October 2016 and awarded  Five out of Five

It is my 4th stay at lovely Arnos Vale Apartments. Lived already in all of the three and each one is very recommendable. Either the 2 bedroom downstair apartments with direct doors into the garden or the upstair 1 bedroom apartment with its beautiful veranda. Especially the cleanness makes us always feel like home. The cultivated garden and all the tropical flora surrounding the house gives a special touch. Ursuline is always there and can give you good advises or to show who the washing machine is working. Victor is very helpful in all the technical or transportation concerns. Fore sure we will always come back - again and again!

"Very, very comfortable!"my teenage daughter said.

We stayed this summer upstairs enjoying our balcony with a view to the beautiful and lush green garden which looks more like a garden of a castle.

The apartment is well furnished and gives you a feeling of being very welcome when you find flowers on the table on your arrival.

Victor and Ursuline are very helpful and discrete hosts with a lot of empathy if you want to have a little chat or silence when you are in your "morning meditation".

Another good point is the outstanding cleanness in all rooms, even in every corner inside their fence.

Also comfortable is a fresh bed every three days. If you want to rent a car, Victor is very helpful. You can be picked up and dropped wherever you need to be.

We felt very well in Arnos Vale Apartments and on the arrival on the next holiday we go there again. Then we will feel even more family than friends.

Wonderful, fantastic, serene, quiet. Lovely surroundings, beautiful atmosphere. Friendly and welcoming hosts in the persons of Victor Ford and his wife. When we arrived I was nursing a cough and Victor gave me a herbal drink that helped almost instantly. Thanks again, man.

So, slide the doors open, feel the cool breezes and gaze at the various birds as they arrive for their meals courtesy mrs. Ford. {The Cocrico is a very interesting bird} Or stroll out to the orchard and sit under the trees and listen to the sounds that is nature. There are some brilliant colored fishes in a tank under one of the trees. We even saw a squirrel. I surly recommend this place as the best place I've stayed in Tobago; and I've stayed in quite a few

So you want a vacation that is both affordable and relaxing, go. Where? To Arnos Vale holiday apartments. When? Very Soon!

Arnos Vale Apts is unlike any other place i've stayed in Tobago before. If you're looking for relaxation this is the place. The apt i stayed in was clean,spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities needed. The patio over-looking the garden was wonderful ( really the perfect place for bird watching!) and the place is conveniently located.The owners were friendly and I would recommend anyone to stay there.

This is certainly the place to stay in Tobago.

Arnos Vale Vacation Apartments were advertised as a quiet, private, relaxing place to stay. Between street noise, construction, and neighbors, it was anything but quiet. We stayed for the month of December 2012.

It was certainly not private – the owners came in every single day for a month. They were rather nosy and we had no privacy. One day they actually left a door unlocked. We got the feeling that they felt put out by our presence.

Perhaps a stay of a few days would have been better, but a month was harsh. The kitchen was meagerly equipped at best – take your own knives and vegetable peeler if you want to cook. We had to purchase glasses, baking sheets, etc.

The apartment we had was very spacious, but the layout was extremely poor. The furniture did not fit the space and two people were constantly stepping over one another. Sliding glass doors would have been a nice touch instead of solid metal, but I expect that was done for security purposes.

The deck was great for watching birds and there was a bird feeder. We were offered the use of a washer to launder clothes which saved us much hassle. Everything was very clean and tidy as the apartment was cleaned every three days. The fruit trees in the garden were lovely as was the fruit when it was available.

There was no hot water in the mornings for most of our stay. The problem got better for a few days after we complained, but then there was no hot water again. The free wifi was also not functioning for a good portion of the time we were there. And if you want to know where to leave the garbage or how to work the television, you’ll have to ask – it’s not explained when you arrive.

Do not expect more than clean linens, a bar of soap, dish soap, one garbage bag and one roll of toilet paper. As we stayed for a long time, groceries were not a problem, but for a short stay, this could be either extremely inconvenient or expensive.

This apartment could have been much more comfortable with very little modification.
