Chaconia Suite - Reader Reports & Opinion
Suzanna Thomas from U.K. visited in July 2014 and awarded
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.

Truly amazing apartment right on the beach, surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden with a swimming pool. An excellent place for a total relaxation.
It sleeps up to 6 people comfortably, fully equipped kitchen. Satellite TV, wifi (in case you need it).
Steps to the beach from the gated property where you can enjoy a swim in the ocean. The water is calm and quite shallow, the beach may not be as inviting as at some other Caribbean destinations but is clean and not crowded.
There is a lot to see if you take a car and tour the island, amazing views, rain forest, bird watching, tropical flora etc.
The property manager Liz is absolutely awesome, very helpful just a phone call away; the place is totally secure just to give you a piece of mind.

Chaconia was everything and more that we had hoped for. The place is so beautiful and well attended to. The large balcony was our favourite spot overlooking the ocean and watching the sunsets. We enjoyed that every room had comfortable furniture including the balcony.
Whether we were walking on the beach or lounging by the pool, it was peaceful and quiet.
Chris does a beautiful job at keeping the grounds beautiful and the manager Liz was excellent. The owners are awesome to deal with too!
If you are looking for a nice place to relax, enjoy the ocean and get warm, this was a favourite place for us.

This was a perfect vacation location for our family. It exceeded our expectations. Setting up the rental from the website was quick, easy and user friendly. Our family was so grateful that we found it and we would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. The view is breathtaking from the outdoor sitting area. We fell asleep to the sound of wonderful waves. The beach is beautiful, within steps of apartment and many times we were the only ones on it to enjoy just jumping the waves and swimming. A coral reef area was within swimming distance and snorkelling was enjoyed by all. The kitchen is complete with everything provided, so that simple, quick meals can be enjoyed. We could not have had a more perfect getaway!!! All of our needs were met and more.

We enjoyed our time at Chaconia immensely. The Condo was nothing short of a home away from home, with many amenities and fantastic service by our property manager, Liz and housekeeper, Lenore. We engaged in numerous activities, from surfing to mountain biking and of course, wave jumping in the gorgeous clear waters right outside of our condo. Our needs were attended to and we loved our experience in Tobago. I would recommend this vacation and this condo without reservation to anyone considering it. You will not be disappointed. If you fly from the United States, make sure your flights are good ones. Flying nonstop from New York is the best way to do it. Otherwise, you have numerous plane changes and flights are limited if one gets canceled, which ours almost did. You will be happy and relaxed at Chaconia and will wish you didn't have to return to reality when your vacation time ends. At least that is the way we felt. If you choose Chaconia, make sure you don't close up the condo and put on the air conditioning or you'll miss the serenity and connection you will have with the sound of the waves breaking and the peace that it brings to your life while there. Enjoy!
