Arnos Vale Vacation Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion

My family just returned from a fantastic vacation in Tobago. Victor picked us up at the airport and took us right to the Pennysaver so we could have food for the next day. We also rented one of his cars which was very clean and ran well. Both Victor and Ursline went out of their way to ensure our needs were met and answered all of our questions about the island. They were always willing to chat but never intrusive on our privacy. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. We loved the location as we were a 2 minute drive from one of the best "from shore" snorkeling beaches, close to restaurants etc in Black Rock as well as centrally located for all the other areas we wanted to explore. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe and comfortable self-catering apartment.

The house of Victor and Ursuline is one of the neathest and best private accomodations of the whole island.
Due to the hospitality of them and the good care for everything.
I appreciate the Mangos as a special gift from
their garden too.
We will come again!

I would recommend this place to anyone. The host, Victor, was great (& is a great cook too :-). The apartment & grounds were beautiful & safe. If we ever were to return to Tobago, I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

We come every year and it is always a pleasure to stay at the Arnos Vale Apartments. The house has become a second home for us.
The whole property is extremely well maintained. All apartments are spotless clean and well equipped and furnished. You will find all what you need for a perfect holiday.
Ursline and Victor are very friendly and helpful hosts. All the time strived to make your vacation as best as possible. And what they can't do, the lovely surrounding and the birds can do it. The spacious garden offers many places to relax. And be sure the wildlife of birds in the garden offers a good entertainment program. In no time you will be in the focus of the colourful birds and they will spy on you for some food.
Outside of the tourist area you get to know the true Tobago. Walking the streets of Plymouth you become acquainted with the lifestyle and the daily routine of the local people. And you will find out how polite and obliging the Tobagonian are.
Therefore it is certain not a disadvantage not to stay directly on the beach. Even though it is only a 10 minutes walk to the Arnos Vale Beach. In the center of Plymouth you will find a grocery and a bakery, but you have to walk a distance.
Given that Tobago is more a travel destination for individual tourists a car is anyway essential. Only by spending your holiday at one place you will not see the rich nature, the amazing biodiversity of plants and animals, exceptionally the birds. And not to mention the aquatic life of Tobago. Do not be afraid to go on your own initiative.
There are some good restaurants in driving distance or you can buy some fresh fish for cooking from the fishermen at Mt. Irvine Bay in the afternoon.
In addition the location is in short driving distance to different beaches, places of interest and a cash machine.
All in all this accommodation is highly recommend.
