Petit Careme Apartment - Reader Reports & Opinion
Wayne Lemoine from U.K. visited in January 2014 and awarded
We stayed at the apartment for 9 days and the villa for 5 days in Jan 2014. The building was well maintained and kept extremely clean and tidy by Charmaine the lovely housekeeper.
The apartment is nice and spacious and ideal for 2 people or a couple with 1 or 2 children as there is an extra bed in the bedroom and a bed settee in the lounge area, all on the ground floor. The villa on the first and second floors is beautiful and has a magnificent veranda overlooking the rainforest perimeter and the pool/grounds - all of which are well tended. The air conditioning works well although we did not use it very much as the villa does not get overly hot or humid due to its open and spacious design. Both villa and apartment are similarly very well equipped with everything you would expect or conceivably need (although a toaster would be nice in the apartment). The villa is situated in Mount Irvine which is a 10 minute drive from Crown Point and so is in a nice quiet location. The complex of 5 luxury villas share a lovely pool but during our visit we were the only people who used it. The complex is fully gated and has a security/maintenance man (Wayne) so we had no worries about leaving valuables in the apartment even though it didn't have a safe (the villa does). The focus of our trip was scuba diving and being based 10 minutes from our chosen dive school (Extra Divers - recommended) was nice and convenient and we really enjoyed the variety of dive sites on offer in the Crown Point area.
I have no hesitation in recommending La Petit Careme apartment and villa.

We recently spent 2 glorious weeks in the sunshine at Petit Careme Villa in Tobago. The location is superb - quiet, secure with gated access , lovely pool and gardens, close to beautiful beaches. The Villa has an excellent housekeeper, Charmaine who is most helpful and a great cook. She prepared local dishes at a nominal fee. There were several lovely restaurants with a local flair. The seafood is fresh and tasty. The Villa itself has a great veranda. We ate most of our meal here and relaxed with rum punch watching the beautiful wild birds. The children loved hammock . Bird feeders are provided which attracted several species of island birds. Off the verandah is a private splash pool for fun and games, old and young. The sun rises and sun sets are spectacular.This was our second vacation and I would definitely recommend Petit Careme Villa. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We had a wonderful stay. The villa is lovely and very spacious, and the grounds, absolutely beautiful. I loved the large community pool that was always nice and warm at night due to the sunny days we had. The splash pool at the villa was great for the kids but was always too cold so they couldn't stay in for very long. The housekeeper Charmaine was very friendly and helpful. I hope to stay there again sometime soon.

We have stayed at Petit Careme Villa before, and we certainly hope to go there again in the future. We just love the location, with the greenery all around, and the sense of privacy yet it's not isolated. The beach is close by, and is a Caribbean dream to sit there reading with the waves gently rolling in. The Villa itself has everything that one could want or need, and is SO spacious. The housekeeper is a huge help and she is so pleasant. We had a great holiday!

My friends and I have been renting this resort over the past couple years. On average we stay at this villa twice per year, each period being for at least one week. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Barrow and the housekeeper, Charmaine, are always very accommodating. The location of the villa offers a serene and relazing environment. Having stayed at many other houses in Tobago I must say that this villa is probably the only one I can describe as "a home away from home". I really look forward to coming every time and often find it difficult to leave.
