Chaconia Suite - Reader Reports & Opinion
Liz Garvey from U.K. visited in December 2014 and awarded
Beautiful apartment in a beautiful place; well equipped and appointed, there is nothing more you could ask for.
The apartment is right on the beach, the beach is quiet as well as beautiful.
There are restaurants nearby, but it is quite difficult to tear yourself away from the fantastic sea views from the balcony and the sound of the waves.
Lots of interesting places to visit and great activities - we learnt to paddle board, went mountain biking and hiking in the rain forest, Tobago is an unspoilt gem.

This was our 1st visit to Chaconia (as well as Tobago) and it was pretty much perfect! Liz, Lenore and Chris do everything to make sure you have a wonderful stay. The suite was more than enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids.
We love to cook and the kitchen is well stocked with any appliance, pot, pan or dish you might need. The rooms are nicely decorated and although the ac works great, we opted for opening the shutters most days and enjoying the breeze!
The suite is well equipped for all of your vacation needs. From a tub filled with beach and pool toys for the kids, to games for a rainy day, a plethora of books, some DVD's and coolers to take to the beach, you won't have to worry if you forget to pack something!
The large balcony with a view of the beach was one of our favorite spots! Put a little sugar water in the bird feeders and enjoy breakfast with the birds!
The grounds are very well maintained and we felt very safe our entire trip. Lucy and Timbo became part of our family for our 9 day stay which our kids just loved!
The Seahorse is a stone's throw and offers excellent service and food. The Buccaneer is across the street and while some may not appreciate it's "aesthetics", it was a great place for a sunset cocktail and a snack for the kids.
Liz was awesome throughout the whole process. This was our 1st time booking internationally and her patience and professionalism was very much appreciated!
We had a truly wonderful time and can't wait to come back!

This was our first stay at the Chaconia Suite located in Black Rock Dreams. We have been visiting Tobago for many years and without a doubt this is one of the best apartment villa accommodations available. The furnishings were of a high quality and well maintained.
It provides one of the true opportunities to have a beach front apartment villa on the island. There are restaurants nearby along with other facilities. Above all the property manager Liz does a fantastic job and provides a superb service.
If you visit, take an afternoon to relax in the pool during the sunset!! It's really a private and rejuvenating experience.
We will definitely be back!!

Clean, fully functional with all amenities, safe and very relaxing. All instructions were marked very well so you had no trouble getting acquainted with everything in the Suite. The people taking care of the property are very friendly yet professional at the same time, which made relaxation easy. Looking forward to visiting as often as I can. A must visit in a traveler's life.

We have had a really beautiful fortnight in Tobago. We are a family of two older teenagers with friends and had come to renew our wedding vows. The island is very charming - we found everything easy to find, easy to explore and appeared safe. We travelled up the Caribbean side as far as EnglishMan's Bay and on another occasion travelled up the Atlantic side as far as Speyside. The rainforest trail seemed a little
pricey but was an enjoyable morning. The catamaran trip Island Girl was amazing and took us to several beautiful remote snorkelling spots and saw several
dophins which were amazing and we took Captain Chris' s boat trip from Buccoo to go onto Nylon Pool and No Man's land - he really looked after us. Sunday
school was enjoyable for the Steel Band experience and we ate out in several of the restaurants and enjoyed the cocktail hour at the Pavilion watching the pink and purple sunsets.
The turtles were laying eggs on Turtle Beach and had been sighted on several
nights but although we contacted SOS they didn't let us know. We missed this but hopefully may catch this wonderful experience again.
The apartment suite is beautiful, very spacious and comfortable with everything
there. It was wonderful to wake each morning and look at the stunning views from the bedroom and hear the waves crashing on the beach - a wonderful
location. We all loved the little dog Lucy who used to join us on our morning walks and swims. We were really happy with our choice of Chaconia - renewing
our vows in a local church was wonderful and the archdeacon was very kind, made
us feel welcome and gave us a lovely certificate following the service.
We had a restful, fun 2 weeks and it was like a little paradise - thank you
very much for sharing your holiday home with us. Both jane and Liz have been very
supportive and helpful with tons of useful information given and it was so
helpful to have Lenore come and freshen up the apartment each morning. Thank
you very much Liz for helping with our luggage on the final trip to the airport
- that was very thoughtful and kind of you.
We would really hope to come back to the island again and definitely if we
could stay again at Chaconia that would be our first choice.
