Detailed Description

Website extracts and/or information supplied by Ocean View

This family friendly spacious luxury apartment is situated in the prestigious Tobago Plantations development midway between the airport and Scarborough and just a 100 metres stroll from Little Rockly Bay beach across the golf course. Ocean View enjoys stunning vistas across the Tobago Plantations golf course to the beach and the sea beyond and the large covered terrace overlooks the golf course towards the sea.

The apartment offers the very highest standard of self-catering luxury and is located on an 'island' surrounded by the Tobago Plantations golf course. There is a swimming pool directly opposite the front door. The apartment complex is gated and entry to the entire development is controlled. WiFi is also included throughout the apartment and maid service on 5 days per week is included in the price of Ocean View.

There are two spacious air conditioned bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms and an additional shower room and doors on to the terrace. Ocean View is situated at the very heart of the Tobago Plantations Estate. Previously known as the Lowlands Estate, which in times gone by produced sugar cane and coconuts, the 750 acre area has been sympathetically developed to retain the ecological beauty of the original lie of the land.

Tobago Plantations has two golf courses, the championship 18 hole course in the middle of which the apartments sit on an island, as well as a new 9 hole course better suited to the amateur.

Sitting quietly on the apartment terrace a number of birds can obligingly appear. Enjoy the nightly visits from the local Night Heron as he forages for bugs for his dinner just a few metres away. During the day lizards laze in the sun.

Wildlife:

One of the joys of the area is to stroll along the pathways around the golf course enjoying the vistas out to sea and of the lush vegetation. Majestic palms lend a truly tropical mood.

The lakes and wetlands areas provide a natural habitat for a large variety of resident birds as well as migrants to these shores.
