Perfection! (sums it up)
But, it is a review. So here goes.
The villa is amazing. Large, spacious, clean, every type of convenience. It sits to the back of the Mt. Irvine golf course in lush peaceful greenery. In the height of the heat of the dry season, the entire villa was cool and relaxing.
But the GEM of this villa is the Petit Careme Team: Wendy, Eric, Wayne and Charmaine.
Service beyond imaginable. Maybe think visiting your family that you haven't seen in a few years - hospitable, caring and super chill.
A group of us from New York and Trinidad came across to Tobago for a short vacation. The Petit Careme team literally took care of us from arrival to departure. Eric and Wayne picked us up and took us to the villa which was clean, spacious, serene. We got in quite late and Wayne arranged a driver for us to get dinner and a few groceries. Charmaine came in the next morning, chatted with us a bit and even arranged for a few Julie mangoes for one of the New Yorkers! Throughout the entire stay, Wendy was always willing to make a call to get a boat tour at a reasonable rate, or rent a car and sometimes just a courtesy call to make sure we were a-ok. I could keep going on and on about this.
It comes down to this. I've been coming to Tobago for years. It's a great island. Nice people, nice beaches. But the combination of the Petit Careme villa and more importantly, Wendy and her team........amazing, perfection. Haven't had anything close to that type of care and service anywhere else in the Caribbean.
Well done Wendy, Eric, Wayne and Charmaine. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Petit Careme Villa
I enjoyed my stay even though it was a short one. The Villa was very comfortable. I spent most of the time in the very spacious porch where you had a wonderful view of Mount Irvine Golf Course. The Villa itself is among four other villas - secure, safe. You need to enter the compound by a gate. Petit Careme is at the back surrounded by a gully - private and quite beautiful.
The villa was spacious with a Very big kitchen. large Living area and master bedroom downstairs with a full bath. Up stairs two more bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Another big porch upstairs. Lots of room. Villa itself is very close to all the beaches and Shopping areas.

Wendy, Charmaine and The Villa, :D ...
I smile when I think of any or all these three. The property owner Wendy was incredibly accomodating allowing our party to book the night before we arrived and informed us of the special deal on the Villa that weekend even though it was not yet posted online. She ensured that we arrived and further phoned to ensure we settled in, and after we left, kept in touch and pursued us to return our security deposit even though we were hard to reach. I consider that very honorable and honest, and would have gone back for just that reason alone ...but there is MUCH MUCH more reason for me to return.
On arriving at the Villa, we met the charming Charmaine. The lovely housekeeper who informed us about the accommodation, walked us around, gave us the keys and chatted a bit :). We did not require house keeping every day but it is available and was offered.
The Villa is VERY well appointed with the most comfortable porch furniture for sipping wine, playing cards, lounging in the hammock and superb al fresco dining!! and to our great pleasure and surprise excellent bird watching!!.... Chickens, mot mots, cocricos, kisskidees, mocking birds, tanagers.... etc etc etc frequent the beautiful bushes behind the villa.
The bedrooms were decorated with delightful beach and ocean decor with very comfortable beds, working air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms in each. The view of the golf course was fantastic and you can certainly catch a glimpse of the ocean from the upstairs balcony.
The plunge pool was a hit with the kid!! and adults alike!! and the main pool and compound provided a wonderful place to walk around at night after dinner in the safety of a gated community. The kitchen has every appliance and convince necessary to make your meal of choice and for the home bodies , there are television sets for your viewing pleasure if you'd like!
Our party took the opportunity to walk to the beach across the golf course and found ourself a furry friend on the beach. We went SCUBA diving at Mt. Irvine Bay, visited Pigeon Point beach and Store Bay for the day and and when we stayed in, cooked, ate, drank and enjoyed the convenience and ambiance of staying on Villas on the Green, Petit Careme Villa.... We will definitely be back!!!!.... and you should visit too!! :)

Of all the places we have stayed in Tobago, there is no place compared to the Petite Careme apartment. From the minute you enter the compound, it was more than what you are expecting.
The surroundings are so beautiful, tall lush green trees, well maintained lawn and the birds that can be heard, made you feel so relaxed.
Getting around was no problem here, as the very friendly staff would always advise of the best places to visit.
The pool was always cleaned and our little one was always eager to get in. There is a small pool for the kids and the bigger pool for adults which is great for families.
I would recommend this Apartment to everyone. We really do love when we stay here, its our home away from home. There is no need for us to look anywhere else for a vacation spot. Itís the place where you will always go back.

Awesome, serene, spacious, comfortable, relaxing
All the words I will use to describe my visit, to Petite Careme. From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome, and was luck enough to meet the property manager(s)/owners!
The space is truly lovely. If you love nature, serenity and comfort, this villa is for you!
Within the first night, we felt at home. The beds are super, super comfortable!
Will definitely be back, and will definitely recommend to anyone to stay at Petite Careme.
We did not want to leave!!! And, can't wait to return!!!
