Long overdue, but still etched in my memory and have not forgotten my experience here. Let me just say, I am one who is very hard to please (my husband's but my visit to this villa has been an amazing one, meeting and exceeding all my expectations!! Planning a trip with a tight budget was everyone's dilemma. I stumbled onto this place some time ago, and finally decided to contact the owner to see if she would accommodate us. Maggie is just wonderful! From little chats we've shared, though a bit out-of-reach she has made herself very present by her timely response to emails, and when she couldn’t get here herself, she sent Janelle. Maggie is very kind and understanding and was very accommodating to our specific needs, that too in a very timely manner. Im convinced that not many people are like her! We rented the entire villa for our four-night stay. We were simply seeking a simple place to stay, one that accommodated our budget, but staying here was the best decision we made and more than we had bargained for. Everyone was more than pleased. The amenities were on point, well maintained, beautifully furnished home, clean and spacious bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) and living rooms, fully equipped kitchens (thank God, because we are huge fans of FOOD and we were able to pack light.) Each floor had its separate washer/dryer facilities, which was great cause we able to avoid huge piles of wet clothes after returning from the beach, and having to take these heavy wet clothes back home with us. The conveniences were on point. The decking, patio, and pool, great for 'night limes' hanging out together. My favorite was the jacuzzi and how lucky we were; this home has two! The kids enjoyed this the most! There was sufficient parking available as well. And OMG, though it's a garden view, it was like no other. Acres and acres of beautifully up-kept golf course and huge shady trees. Taking a stroll in the evening, about a minute's walk away, we stumbled onto mini pier into the ocean, this was a great surprise and bonus for us. The only downside to this villa is the 10 minute drive in and out of Tobago Plantations, but the view is spectacular! and 3 minutes away from Magdalena Hotel. All in all, one of the best vacations I've been on, this home was a bonus. I am extremely pleased and most definitely will be back as I plan to make this home my home-away-from-away every time I visit beautiful Tobago!!

Thank you Maggie! Your home is my holiday!

I stayed at Pelican Point with my two daughters for the week of Christmas 2014. It was a most delightful and relaxing stay. Having a swimming pool, literally off the front patio was amazing. The jacuzzi was exhilarating.

Anything you wanted in a vacation home was available. The kitchen lacked nothing. It was obvious that careful thought went into equipping the apartment with everything necessary. The entire experience was great and I will definetly like to stay here again.

We completely enjoyed our stay at Pelican Point. A family of three grownups, there was more than enough space for all of us to stay comfortably for a week. There's tons of closet and drawer space for clothing and shoes. For the price, this is a great deal.

The home is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. We brought items such as toilet paper and paper towels but we didn't need to use them because the home was already stocked with them. Cutlery, pots, pans, blender, toaster, microwave--it was all there. I even had a chance to do laundry at the end of my trip, although I had to buy laundry detergent.

We couldn't seem to figure out how the dishwasher worked though, but I'm sending a note to the owner to let her know.

We rented only the ground floor and it had its own pool and hot tub. There was also no one else around so we had a lot of privacy and no disturbance from neighbors.

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Tobago.

This has been the most fantastic self catering place we have ever stayed!! There was NOTHING that we could think of that we needed and didn't have, the owners have been fantastic they were an email away at all times, my sister in law booked everything through the lady that owns it in Canterbury, this is truly home from home and thats before i get started on Tobago itself! We came 10 yrs ago and i was not looking forward to any commercialisation that would have gone on but i was pleasantly surprised, the beaches are fantastic, the restaurants ( especially Jemima's Tree house restaurant) it was just as we remembered it, and of course the fab Chinese - The Fortune House, we met up with our Tobagan Family - Kelton Thomas locally known as The Bird Man, he does a fantastic job rehabilitating birds of prey on the island ( look him up on Google) he is also into his body building and represents Tobago all over the world! It was so good to see him again he took us over to Trinidad while we were there to the bird sanctuary it was absolutely fab, we caught the 6am ferry over and flew back, the fares only cost about £25 for each person it was a fantastic day out which ended with a river trip through the mangroves ending up watching the most spectacular sight of literally hundreds of bright orange ibis birds coming home to roost for the night, girls, don't take any coats or cardigans and keep the best dresses down to about 3 as its all casual YOU WONT NEED THEM! so if you're thinking of going i can highly recommend it ( please can you take me with you!)
