WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE.My partner and I stayed in the cottage of Orchid villa for a total of two weeks during the Christmas vacation of 2016. We returned in January 2017 because the tranquility and positive energy of this place draws one in and makes you forget the adversity in which you may have emerged from.
The property is ideally located in close proximity to both Scarborough and Crown point, the two largest towns of Tobago. This was excellent for us because we periodically purchased supplies for the duration of our stay. With that said, the house is nestled in tropical greenery, with picturesque landscape and the serene melody of chirping birds. It is also equidistant to either coast from which to explore the island.
We spent many memorable hours enjoying plunges in the pool and walks in the garden. We also indulged in a few competitive games of 8 ball pool. The place is clean, well furnished and incredibly comfortable.
My partner and i took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen creating a variety of satisfying meals.There was also a bar be que pit which was available for our use. We could not have asked for more but the icing on the cake was our efficient and gracious host Mrs. Frances Elaine Morganti. Willing to go out of her way to satisfy her guests, she approached us with an affable demeanour and welcomed us into her home. This may sound silly but i considered it an honor being guests of this prestige woman. I can assure you, we shall be returning if she will have us.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Mrs Morganti for your abundance of kindness and we continue to hold you in high regard.

Had a lovely stay here last month. The hostess was very much accommodating and the apartment was comfortable with all the amenities we needed for our week long stay. The property is very close to the grocery and shops and a little drive along will take you to the mall and the highway. I would definitely recommend Orchid Villa for anyone who would like a vacation where the place they stay is away from the hustle and bustle of swarms of tourists but yet close enough to easily get to all the various attractions.

This villa is very accommodating, the pool is the best and the owner(Elaine) is cool, tries her best to supply any thing you need. Locating it was a bit of challenge, but after the first night and waking up to the sounds of birds whistling erased that memory. The villa needs some upgrading as it's on the aged side, but still welcoming and spacious enough.
The other visitors were all friendly and I think its because the Villa gives-off that family living ambience/spirit. Enjoyed my stay and which I could have stayed longer. Thanks Elaine for the direction to the Organic Supermart, they have so many thing better than the regular ones. I didn't get the salad stuff though, however, I did get a few interesting items.
Hope your husband pulls through and hope to see you again.
Nicole and family.

We had a great stay with Elaine and her handsome dog Milo. The accomodation was clean and very comfortable. The pool was lovely plenty of seating and spotless.
Elaine is a lovely lady and made us feel so welcome we felt like old friends and enjoyed a most delightful evening with her sitting outside and having a few drinks.
Would definitely return to the lovely island of tobago and most certainly stay with Elaine.
Thank-you for putting us up at short notice, and hope all your plans work out.

My partner and I spent 3 days at Elaine's charming cottage. It really is a nice spot for two persons. The kitchen is well outfitted if you wish to do your own cooking. It was also quite nice to be right next to the pool. Although the property was fully occupied that weekend it was not crowded and I barely saw or our other neighbours. The bedroom however, was a bit dusty for my sinuses so I did do quite a bit of sneezing. So I would say pay a bit more attention to housekeeping. Outside of that we were quite comfortable.
