At Last Holiday Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion
Coby & Daine Pearson from U.S.A. visited in March 2015 and awarded
We stayed in At Last apartments for 9 days just few weeks ago and had a wonderful time. Indeed owner Loraine makes you feel welcome and at home. We had middle apartment which was very basic but comfortable. We spend most of our time outside; the yard & pool area were our favorite hangouts and of course the beaches. We enjoyed sitting outside till dark sipping a drink (or two)and look at stars and listen to waves crashing.
Not very luxurious but everything is there and if it's not Loraine will get it for you.
The only negative: no screens on windows, coming from the South (Georgia) we kind of missed that. So apartment gets very warm in evening if you want to read or watch tv.(no lights due to bugs). We opted for going to bedroom to read and turn a/c on.
Wonderful large bathroom and great shower!
We visited cousins at a very luxurious beach hotel but were extremely happy we opted for not paying $180-$225 a night and liked "going home", put pj's on and enjoy a drink sitting in the garden area in front of apartment.
Enjoy your stay, you won't regret it.

We stayed here for 9 days and were very impressed with the apartments and the pool. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the kitchen well equipped with a microwave, full size fridge and stove with an oven,a toaster and a kettle .In our 6 weeks of staying in similar priced apartments,this was by far the most spacious and well equipped.
Loraine,the onsite owner was extremely friendly and helpful and cleaned the apartment every 3 days giving us clean sheets and towels. The garden is beautiful and we spent hours in the large pool . The apartment is located right on Turtle Beach for long walks and turtle watching.
We purchased fresh,home grown veggies from Loraine's garden. Loraine can an organize a hire car for you and is very helpful with advice on where to eat and places to visit. She has a lovely dog Many and a puppy she rescued off the beach . We thoroughly recommend these apartments.

We had a lovely stay at At Last Apartments. It was clean and spacious with a full kitchen, living room, air conditioned bedroom and a large bathroom. The bed was maybe a bit old and squeaky but otherwise the appartment was very comfortable. The courtyard overlooks the ocean and has a pool with lounge chairs and a garden with large picnic tables. We enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners out there listening to the waves.
To access the beach you have to go around the side of the property since the courtyard is closed in. On one side of the property is the very vast Turtle beach. There is one resort in the middle of the beach but most of it was empty with very few people around. If you are there during the right season you may even spot some turtles nesting. On the other side of the property there is a smaller span of beach that was completely deserted. About a 10minute walk away is Stonehaven Bay where there is a bit of snorkling and a restaurant/bar right on the beach. If you keep walking to the opposite end of Stonehaven Bay and up the hill you will find more dining option. For some great snorkling you can walk a little farther to Mt Irving Bay where the reefs start as soon as you walk in the water.
Just up the road from At Last (less than 5 minute walk) there are a few mini marts to buy some food if you want to prepare it at the appartment. The area felt safe and was quiet in a residential neighbourhood. Loraine was a nice host and even offered to drive us back to the airport for a fraction of the cost of a taxi.

In February we spent a wonderful week at Loraine's At Last Holiday Apartments. Our apartment was large and spacious, consisted of a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room, an air-conditioned bedroom, and a large bathroom.
All apartments are facing the beach. You can hear the waves when sitting in the living room or eating your breakfast in the kitchen. But, you never hear any sound from your neighbours in the other apartments.
There is a swimming pool which we used after our snorkeling trips in the evening. You can stroll along Turtle Beach or snorkel from the left of Turtle Beach around the rocks towards Grafton Bay. On our first evening we sighted a huge Stingray near the beach.
And, the area seems to be free from mosquitoes and sandflies: The week before we spent at Charlotteville and arrived at Loraine's with mosquito & sandfly bites almost all over. But, here we enjoyed the evenings in the garden and even needed no repellent at all.
Loraine is doing most of the maintenance work by her own; I think, that is why everything (including also the beautiful garden) is so neat and clean.
Thank you very much Loraine and give a hug to Mandy!

During carnival time, my family and I really wanted to visit Tobago. After thoroughly searching through my tobago site, I complied a list of places to call. I called over 20 places and all were booked or wasn't able to accommodate our needs. Even though it was not where we were accustomed to staying in bon accord, I decided to try AT LAST HOLIDAY apartments in black rock. Miss Loraine was willing to accommodate us and our needs. We didn't know what to expect but upon arrival we were first greeted by Mandy, Loraine's pet dog. She is very friendly and within a day or two she even licked my face! Loraine showed us to our room and I must say we were very impressed.The apartment was very spacious, well stocked with chairs, towels, books and even board games! It was clean and well kept. From her home grown garden to the pool, everything was well kept! Ms Loraine was very entertaining and we appreciated the life stories she gave to us! I will recommend this apartment to anyone without hesitation. Not forgetting having the beach as our back yard leading up to turtle beach. The neighborhood is very peaceful, just what us five ladies needed! My sister, who lives in vegas couldnt stop showing her husband pictures of the place!
We definitely will consider returning there on our next Tobago trip! Thank you Miss Loraine for everything!
