As always at dimples apartments a wonderful stay with wonderful hosts in claire and liston and the gawjus boys!
No request is ever to much for claire or liston, if angels are real then claire and liston are two!
Once again thank you for a great time.

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at Dimple's Apartment. It was walking distance to the beach, mini mart and food restaurants. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and it had everything we needed for our weekend. Next year we will certainly be staying at Dimple's Apartment :-)

Dimple's is the perfect place for a 'homey getaway' the apartments are quaint and clean. Efficiently working utilities, enjoyable ambiance,totally adorable! Great place to relax and isolate yourself from the outside world. Mr. Dimples is a generous and heart warming host. Only thing missing was a swimming pool or even a plunge. Regardless i will definitely patronize again!!

Once again ...... a fantastic welcome to Tobago by Claire. (picked up in the airport) I was staying for only one night when I arrived the 1/2-12, and was supposed to come back for 10 days after spending 7 days in Trinidad.
This is definitely the place to stay, when you are visiting Tobago - Close to everything, and especially Store Bay beach !!!!
Claire and Liston were hosts of a nice barbecue saturday evening, where their two lovely children Joseph and Jacob was a big part of the entertainment ..... Super!
Close to the apartment there is a little shop where to rent bikes. It came out to be a good idea to get around (I went as far as Plymouth and Blackrock), and will definitely make a longer trip next time.
This is the only way to stay for me and the family, and we will be back again this christmas - and can't hardly wait to "get back home"

My girlfriend and I just stayed there for 7 nights. As others have stated, it's a nice, clean, and basic apartment that's about a 25 min (warm) walk from the airport and about a 30 minute walk to the closest beach but there is a bicycle rental place (60TT/day?) between the airport and Dimples. Claire and Dimples are good hosts, they let you have your space but are willing to stay and chat if you'd like. Joseph and Jacob, the young boys, are fun to have around and they provided cheap entertainment. :)
The air conditioner works great and is needed in the middle of the day. The one negative (in our opinion, others may be used to it) that is totally and completely NOT under the control of Claire or Dimples, is the party that the goats, roosters, dogs, and birds have in the early morning hours. Bring earplugs as this was a nightly ritual. Although I think if you stay anywhere in Crown Point, you'll run into this.
Although the family lives above the apartments, we did not hear them above us when we went to sleep.
One side note: We found a wonderful Roti shop shop nearby, Lena's Roti and Pastry Shop. If you take the back road (Store Bay Branch Road) left to the main road (Claude Noel Highway) and take your second right (don't know the name), you will see a sign soon and it's on the right. Lena is incredibly cute and generous, and makes some of the island's best Roti's, highly recommended!
Dimples is a good value and I would recommend it to anyone staying in the Crown Point area.
