Sea Shell - Reader Reports & Opinion
Don & Mary Barron from Canada visited in February 2012 and awarded
We stayed for one month and loved it. Room was basic but well equipped. Great location right on the end of the beach. Nice quiet safe village, great for just relaxing. Dale was very friendly and helpful as was his mother Anne who came to change the linens.
If you want a nice quiet relaxing holiday this is the place to go.
There is a store in the village to resupply but stock up on the way in at the bigger store where the taxi driver will stop for you. The full size fridge holds a lot.
Would go back in a miute.

We had a wonderful experience of old Tobago. The exceptional peace and tranquility will linger in our memories.
The apartment was everything that we had hoped for, Ann Wallace had the apartment looking spotless on our arrival and supplied us with good quality bed linen every 3/4 days. The only problem that we had, apart from dealing with a dead 'anaconda'outside the kitchen window, was having to flush the lavatory with a bucket for a few days as the flush mechanism was broken. There were also a few power cuts as trees had fallen on the power lines but these sorts of things come with the experience of being in a very rural area.
Most of the time we relaxed on the shady balcony,went walking and swimming and ate fish straight off the fishing boats.The bird life was extremely varied and kept us enchanted. We would definitely return!

Me and my friend spent 14 wonderful days at the Sea Shell. Everything was as described on the apartment's website and even better. The view from the balcony was awesome and kitchen was full equipped so it is possible to cook everything :) Local people were very friendly and helpful. If you want to buy a fresh fish you can do it from the jetty every day :) And good is this that in the Parlatuvier Bay you can use a public transport if you don't want to take a taxi every time. It was incredible to sleep so near to the sea :)
We were happy to meet with you Dale and Joanna :)
If i have opportunity i would like to come back to Tobago and this is the place to stay for reasonable price!

Great time, Sea Shell Parlatuvier was a pleasure for me and my partner, Dales mum came regularly to clean, Dale was a great host checking on us to make sure everything was in order. The people of Parlatuvier were very welcoming

To say that i had a good time would be an understatement. This place is one where mind and spirit can be reconciled with body and soul. I love this place. Ive been there more times than i care to admit.
The seascape is breathtaking and the sunrises and sunsets are something to behold. First time i went i was told the true beauty was the people and i can admit that that is the honest truth.
I left my car window down and the keys in the ignition the first night i was there in the morning i found the windows wound up and a the keys infont of my apartment door. A young man who i had never seen told me he closed up the car and dropped of the key. Nothing was missing in the car that is the a reflection of the honesty and beauty of the people.
And for an added note if you are fortunate enough to taste the guys in the area cooking then you know you are in paradise.
