Sea Shell - Reader Reports & Opinion
Pearl Mrose from Germany visited in April 2015 and awarded
It was one of the best time in ten years ToBaGo. Easy, clean but all necessary (helpful kitchen, TV, radio)for low budget. I don´t miss the internet, Air-conditioning or a mosquitonet.
The style of the Guesthouse "Sea Shell" is mixed from old & new, some parts are historical. Now at home I miss the amazing views from my apartment to the jetty, at the beach and over the sea in specially the noises of the ocean. The fishermen, the shops and the Communitycenter makes your life comfortable. Only few steps from the property into the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Dreamful moments at the balcony.I like the windows and the doors. Friendly people in the little village and special Thanks to Dale (the weekly visitor), the sisters (which change the towels and sheets), my waterman and nice talking man Ryan/Spin with the daily newspaper!I spend three weeks, to short, thats why I must come back. My place to relaxe, to cook a lot of kinds fresh fish with vegetables and lime with the local people.

This place was exactly as advertised and described in the other reviews. It was a perfect location, comfortable accommodations and a good price. I stayed for 4-5 days and spent almost all of my time on the awesome porch overlooking the ocean. Would definitely return.

Parlatuvier was exactly what my friend and I were looking for in our Tobago vacation. We used the Sea Shell as a base to hike, enjoy the beach and go fishing; at the end of the day we could come back, cook our fish and relax in tranquility. The apartment is simple with most amenities, a peaceful location and an amazing balcony.

My friend and I stayed at Sea Shell for several days and it was the perfect accommodation for us. It was simple, secure, comfortable and beautiful. It is steps from the beach and has a fantastic view. Very charming, and the landlord was polite and pleasant. We had a completely positive experience.

We can't recommend Seashell enough. It was idyllic!
From the moment we arrived we fell in love with Parlatuvier.
Between the beautiful view from the balcony overlooking the sea, the temperature, the daily fresh fish on the dock, the unspoilt and unpopulated beach, the people, and neighbour Joanne's hospitality - it was a paradise!
The apartments are basic but very well equipped with a few extra touches - coffee maker, blender (for cocktails and smoothies), huge fridge, microwave, TV with many channels including music, etc
We could barely pull ourselves off the balcony the view was so beautiful :)
We also got to see many birds, bats, lizards, agouti's, chickens, roosters, etc right from the comfort of the balcony.
Parlatuvier is perfect if you want to get away from it all. There's one shop and one bar, waterfalls within walking distance, terrific cooking of neighbor Joanne right next door and a lovely golden sand beach that I had to myself every time I walked the 20 steps down to it :)
Dale was very helpful and organised a taxi to collect us from the airport upon our arrival. We were taken to the supermarket and green grocers to stock up and then on to the apartment. Alan, the taxi driver, was really friendly and helpful. He organised and took us to various places and events throughout our stay. Making us feel welcome and being very accommodating to our needs. Can't say enough about how great he was :)
Joanne, the wonderful cook who lives next door, gave us a warm welcome and helped us out with information and advice that made our holiday unforgettable. Nothing seemed too much trouble for her.
The people on fishing dock and shop were all friendly when we fancied 'liming'.
We found it quiet, tranquil and beautiful.
I will definitely return and recommend Seashell.
