Catherine from Canada visited in December 2008 and awarded
We stayed at Sea Edge for 1 week at the end of December. Emma, the owner, was very nice. We felt very secure. We had to rent a car because our main activities were centered at Pigeon Point. It was nice though to stay far from that location: it was exiting during the day and quiet at night.
The garden was very nice, and earing the waves breaking 24h/day right next door was enchanting. We would go back there for sure.

We recently got back from spending two glorious weeks at Sea Edge in Bucco. What can I say about our stay well nothing short of perfect, Gemma picked us up at the airport and for the two weeks was the perfect host. We regularly had fresh flowers and fruit from the garden in our apartment which was perfect for a couple, you came up four steps onto a lovely veranda with table and chairs (perfect for eating breakfast and admiring the fantastic views) you enter through large double doors into a generous sized bedroom with large ceiling fan. On either side of the bed are two doors one to the shower room with large wardrobe the other to the small but adequate kitchen with electric hob and full size fridge.
Outside the apartment was a large garden which led to the cliff tops with fantastic views but best of all totally private. The garden was full of wildlife from tiny humming birds outside the kitchen window to huge Iguanas walking across the garden, Squirrels, bats and geckos. The apartment was only a 10min walk from Sunday School but no noise and a short walk from a fantastic beach.
I must say a quick word about Gemmas dogs; while we were there she had three large dogs from boxers to a rottweiler but they were very well behaved and were no problem. If you made a fuss of them then they made a fuss of you if you ignored them they ignored you but we thought they were great, the best thing was they were very good guard dogs if we came in late they would bark but never come running up to us which made us feel very secure in fact of the whole two weeks we never locked our doors when we went out. So if you like dogs say hello to them if not just ignore them, we enjoyed their company so much over the two weeks we even bought them a present when we left.
So in short
Gemma the perfect host 10/10
The apartment perfect for couples 10/10

The accomodation was simple but good, in a wonderful garden with a seasight like a picture. You can have breakfast 20meters from room above the reef, with every kind of birds. Everything is very easy: buy foods, fishes, restaurantes, in few minutes walking wonderfull beach and especially we wish mention the very friendly madame Gemma. Dogs are not a problem.
All our holiday was unforgetable.
Siamo partiti un po' scettici, ma appena arrivati mrs Gemma ci ha fatto sentire subito a casa nostra.
Gentilissima e discreta ha risolto tutti i nostri piccoli problemi.
L'alloggio e' essenziale, l'angolo cottura e' spartano, ma la veranda dove si mangia si affaccia sul giardino con vista incantevole.I cani, che ci preoccupavano, quasi non li abbiamo visti e sono stati sempre molto amichevoli.
In compenso le colazioni a picco sul mare sono un ricordo indimenticabile. Consigliamo vivamente una vacanza fai da te.

I spent four days at Sea Edge in early March of this year. After a nightmare experience at Turtle View Residences at Turtle Beach, we called around for new accommodation. We came across Sea Edge by happenstance, but we were glad we did.
Gemma was a wonderful host who made us feel instantly at home in her lovely estate. The cottage is in the back of her property, within earshot of the crashing waves on the sea edge (which has wonderful sunsets and views over Mt Irvine Beach). The room was tastefully decorated and clean, with everything you need and nothing more (no TV, in case you were wondering). That was just what we wanted - the property was secluded, down a small back road away from the bustle of nearby Buccoo.
Sea Edge served as the perfect launching pad for our relaxation activities and I would recommend it highly for travelers (and especially couples) who are ok with self-catering and who want a quiet time to themselves. Of course, it is near the major population centers of the island and by Sunday School, so if you're looking for that it is available.
We have friends in Tobago, but if we're there and we can't stay at their house, we'll be giving Gemma a call.

What a lovely spot - and charming host, Gemma. Another feature is Grange Beach which is less than a 5 min. walk - we sometimes had the beach to ourselves. Fresh fruit breakfasts on our little porch in the company of birds and iguanas - wonderful.
