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.

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.

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!)

This was our second visit to Pelican Point and like my first visit we were not disappointed.We arrived for Jazz which was almost rained out but despite that we had a wonderful time at the Villa.It certainly felt like home away from home.Every item we needed was available.Maggie, you really put a lot of thought and effort into furnishing you home. The cleaning staff were meticulous.I even forgot my cell phone at the Villa and thanks to the honest TPPRL staff I was able to retrieve same without incident.I would certainly recommend this Villa to anyone and can"t wait for my next visit.
