I stayed in the one bedroom apartment for a week
It is on the first floor at the back of the property. It is spacious, clean, comfortable, well maintained, well equipped, quiet and private.
The view over the mature gardens is beautiful,and the balcony is up at tree high level.
The balcony catches the early morning sun, and is in welcome shade for the rest of the day.
The trees are laden with fruit and the variety of birds that visit are a delight to watch.
The owner feeds the birds and the photo opportunities are endless.
The property is in a quiet location , but is also close by ameinities.
I would certainly stay again and would
highly recommend this accommodation to anyone.
There are also two larger apartments on the site.

We stayed in these apartment for 1 week this February 2008 and can't praise them enough.The entire property is spotless.The apartment we stayed in was very spacious,huge in fact.The garden is great for birdwatching lots of birds come to feed.
Victor and Ursaline are lovely people always ready to have a chat.
What I loved most about these apartments is that they are on the edge of a Tobagan village with no tourist just local people going about their daily lives.Don't forget to give the kids a lift home from school we had two that use to catch us every day

Arnos Vale apartments were spotlessly clean and well priced.
Victor Forde was a very friendly host. The car we rented from him was also very clean and well kept. It was nice that we could walk to the Arnos Vale beach from his place and to the Adventure farm, where we saw numerous species of humming birds. Sitting in the garden of Aros Vale apartments was also very pleasant. Victor had some bird feeders out, and many birds visited, including several Mot Mots.
The only thing I could say in a negative way for Arnos vale Apt. was that the beds were Very hard (no springs). If you value complete privacy, stay in an upstairs apt. The larger down stairs apt. looks out into the driveway, and Victor and his wife will often stop by to check on things. Also, don't expect any amenities. Victor, will supply the first roll of toilet paper, and then you are on your own. There is a reasonable and very good market not far from the airport and closer to the Apt. a fine little store in Plymouth.
All in all, it was a friendly nice place to stay. When we go back to Tobago, we hope to stay there again!

Excellent accomodation, spotlessly clean and well maintained.Beautiful gardens that attract lots of birds. Quiet position, a reasonable walk from the centre of the village but convenient for accessing the nearby beaches, or transport into Scarborough. Mr and Mrs Forde, the owners, were extremely helpful and welcoming.We stayed in all 3 of the apartments during the course of our stay and found them all to be comfortable and well equipped. A great place to stay and wonderful value for money

We had 2.5 weeks in Victor and Ursaline Forde's immaculate 2 bedroom apartment. We stayed over Christmas and their hospitality included bringing us a Christmas tree and ornaments to decorate as well as a full Christmas dinner delivered to us by Victor. We got their leftovers and they were the best leftovers I've had! It was a great chance to sample real Tobago home cooking. Everyday they stopped by to say hello and make sure we had everything we needed. They were friendly but unobtrusive. (Invite Victor for a glass of wine and he'll have just a small splash - you can pick his brain about things to do on Tobago!)
Our apartment was cleaned regularly and linens changed often. The entire property is spotless. We did not have a single crawly bug in 2 weeks which is quite remarkable for ground floor Caribbean!
The orchard is lovely and every morning we awoke to the chatter and song of many birds.
The apartment is a very comfortable home for travelers and is central to many great Tobago places. Within 20 minutes drive, we had many great beaches, restaurants and attractions. Very handy spot for getting to a wide variety of dive sites.
