Petit Careme Apartment - Reader Reports & Opinion

Evrything during my stay has been lovely. We really have a very pleasant stay, and due mainly to the high standard of the accomodation.
In order to slightly improve I would just add the option to incorporate some kind of pre-pruchase of some basic things to the home, I mean that the guest will have the option to order you in advance some basic stuff like oil, salt, milk, bread,some drinks, ice, so when they arrive they don't have to go first to the supermarket. Since the stays can be short it is interesting to optimize the time there, so having that basic stuff the guest can deferr the supermarket visit till later on during the day, coordinating it with the beach return or similar.
It would be just as easy as to make a small supermarket purchase at guest's request and then to provide the bill at arrival, which could be paid at the same moment at the deposit.

There is simply no other place I'd rather be when visiting Tobago. Our stay was very short, but would have been planned for at least a week if I had known what a wonderful stay this would have been. The highlight for all was surely the private heated splash pool, as enjoyable in the day as it was in the night under the stars. The owners thought of everything anyone could possibly need including Charmaine who put together a great meal for us!!! The place is far nicer in reality than it appears in the pictures. Such a wonderful place for the family or couple hoping to enjoy a few days of luxury away from the hassles of everyday life. I guarantee you if you visit once, you'll be making plans for your return.

Very lovely location nestled in the corner among the trees. The birds were incredible. Good central location to access the island. Facility was clean & maintained. The staff was friendly. Checkin & out went smoothly. The instructions & signs made it possible to locate the Villa easily. We hope we have the opportunity to visit again.

Petit Careme Villa is delightfully secluded and quiet, and yet not isolated and there is a great sense of security. It is a marvellous place to stay if you are interested in birdwatching - early morning in particular sees a vast array of unusual birds who come to feed happily on the feeders, some of which come back in the evenings.
The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped in all areas. Air conditioning works efficiently and unintrusively if you care to use it, though the villa is pleasantly cool anyway. We had a couple of lovely evenings on the verandah dining with food cooked on the barbecue. There are several restaurants nearby, and also beaches, villages, shops, Buccoo Reef, and Buccoo itself, where you can buy the catch of the day from 4pm onwards.
In the villa there is a helpful guide brochure compiled by the owners to unusual places that you might not necessarily find, such as the Arnos Vale hotel with its magical gardens and birds, and the Looking Out riding stables. It was also very helpful for finding the best food shops in the vicinity.
All in all it is a lovely place to stay - with the swimming pool in the grounds and the comfort of the villa it is sometimes hard to wrench yourself away, but go exploring you must, because Tobago is a beautiful island.
