Giselle's Holiday Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion

I found Giselle's Holiday Apartments online with Mytobago. It turned out to be the perfect place to stay. For one week we were comfortable in a well stocked kitchen that was clean through bedroom and bathroom. The owners are a fabulous couple with a wonderfully polite and kind daughter! We were close to beach, shops, restaurants and anything we needed. If you like to "lime" (the TT word that means to visit and hang out), the owners would visit for a bit or you may meet other guests. Even if you need your privacy and you need a quiet area to relax after a hard day at the beach- this is the spot! I highly recommend it for your stay in Tobago! I will miss this place!!

Oh my, what can i say. It was my first trip to the beautiful island of Tobago and definitely will not be my last if my life is spared. I flew in and was collected from the airport by Mr Dillon. Very pleasant young man with a beautiful smile that just put one at ease. We got to the apartment in less than 5 minutes and i was surprised how close to the airport it was, walking distance without luggage. The apartment is one bedroom, bathroom that is quite large for caribbean standards, large kitchen space with all the utensils one would need, i love it. I met Mrs Dillon and she also has that infectious smile. I felt right at home. Wifi, i brought my magic jack and telephone and i was right at home. The apartment is clean and fresh and in the perfect location. Grocery store and fruit market(small stand) in walking distance. Had a cold box of orange juice in the fridge and a jug of water, this was so thoughtful and well appreciated. I haven not been sleeping well for weeks, i slept for the 7 nights i was there.The bed is so soft and yet firm. I walked to the beach,pigeon point, bought fish. The bank is in walking distance(RBC). Took the public car and bus and went into scarborough. The Dillons was there to answer questions and point you in the right direction. They are adding a second level to the building and i am looking forward to returning in the new year. I am extremely happy having chosen Giselle's Apartment. To the Dillons x3 thank you for making my stay enjoyable. God bless.

I stayed at this apartment for one week and it was wonderful. I wanted to stay longer but had to leave because it would cost too much to change my flight. The apartment is clean and has everything you need for cooking. The owners are wonderful people. The apartment is close to the airport. I took the bus to go into the main town scarborough, the bus stop and taxi stop is in walking distance, less than 3 minutes. The beach is also within walking distance. There is a little bar around the corner that has music and people gather there on fridays and saturdays. i enjoyed it, not over crowded and the people are very friendly although i am not sure they understand me very well. I will return next year and this is where i will stay. The place is new and that is what i like clean and fresh with wonderful host.

We stayed @ Giselle's Holiday Apartment for 3 days and we are impressed. The Apartment is neat, and has complete utitlities, hot showers, very neat bathroom, nice bedroom and has dining and kitchen where you can cook and has fridge too. The only complain is the AC. it doesn't really cool down the room but if you let it stay on while you were out it is fine when you get back. the room is cool. The security is very good since they have their own parking space and gate. I would love to go back to Tobago and stay at Giselle's Apartment. The owner are indeed nice and very helpful. They also have a neighbor named Anton who helped us with our sailing TRIP and Glass bottom boat TRIP he is cool man and funny man. If you stay @ Giselle you will feel comfortable and if you want tours just ask the owner to introduce yout Anton. He will take care of you.

Initially I was a bit nervous about staying at an apartment that I wasn't familiar with, but decided to give Giselle's Holiday Apartments a try. I am very happy I did!!!
I had regular email conversation prior to my arrival with Mrs. Dillon. I had a bunch of questions and her responses were always informative and prompt which set me at ease.
I had come in to Tobago on an earlier flight than expected and was happily collected by Mr. Dillon at the airport. He was friendly and kind. I was escorted to apartment #1.
This is an overall view of what I found. I was very pleased to find the apartment clean and in good order. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and wares. The appliances were new and in good working order. I put this to the test by the 2nd day as I went to the market and cooked most of my meals. I was happy to see the refrigerator had a fresh bottle of water and juice upon my arrival. The bedroom was also clean. It has a double bed that slept well. The bedroom is air conditioned and there is also a fan. The television has cable with many channels to view. The bathroom, large by the usual standard of Tobago. The shower clean and worked well. The apartment has both hot and cold water.
The Dillon's are a class act!!! They understand the importance of vacation and do everything they can to make your stay relaxing and peaceful. I was so impressed with the apartment that I was trying to stay an extra 2 days but could not secure a return flight back to Trinidad on short notice.
This apartment offers the comforts of home for a very affordable price. I am looking forward to staying at Giselle's Holiday Apartments next year.
