Seaside Garden - Reader Reports & Opinion
Kristin & Sivert from Norway visited in March 2010 and awarded
We stayed at the Seaside Garden one night more than planned - we simply didn't want to leave.
We had booked it ahead, in order to have a place to stay for Sunday School, but got a lot more than we expected.
We had the "tropical" room which was light, cool and really clean. As it is close to the ocean, we needed to use the mosquito net at night.
This guest house is very well run, has all the kitchen utensils and services you would need for a "self-contained" vacation, and the personell is never far away should you need anything. The wi-fi internet worked great from our room, and out on the balcony.
Sheldon was an oustanding host, helpful, generous, extremely serviceminded and social, and when he did not have the answers to our questions, someone in his contact list did. He is also professional massage therapist.
Travelling around Tobago, Buccoo's main advantages for us was having the beaches to ourself, the fascinating construction work - a large goat race/crab race stadium(!), and a superb Italian restaurant. What we would come back for is a stay at the Seaside Garden.

An absolutely beautiful setting in a quiet part of Tobago. Gorgeous beach and outstanding welcome from the host, Eleonore.
The accommodation was clean and comfortable and Eleonore was very helpful, as was Sheldon who provided the airport transfer and abundant information.
I would absolutely recommend this lovely guesthouse. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this part of our honeymoon.

Hallo liebe Besucher,
ich verbrachte 2,5 Monate in dem o. g. Gästehaus und war sehr zufrieden. Die Lage ist einmalig (Blick auf das traumhafte Meer, tolle Dachterrasse und nur ein paar Schritte entfernt vom Strand) und die Zimmer sehr gemütlich und sauber. Man hat sich sehr "ZUHAUSE" gefühlt und wurde mit offenen Armen empfangen. Auch bei Unternehmungen und kulturellen Highlights wird man tatkräftig unterstützt und erhält wertvolle Tipps und Umsetzungen. Meine Erwartungen von dem Seaside Garden/Buccoo/Tobago wurden mehr als erfüllt.
Gerne und jederzeit wieder :-)......................

We stayed in the guesthouse over the new years period and it was a great experience. Sheldon the guesthouse manager is a wonderful person that is always smilling and willing to help and take you wherever you would want around the island.

Run by Eleonore, the lovely German lady, we stayed in Seaside Garden for 3 nights. The room and toilet was small, but comfortable but the shower is good and hot.
The place resembles a European style house, with a good kitchen and all cooking/eating utensils available. The is also a fridge to place things. No lockers available, but Eleonore says the place is safe enough, and the main door is locked throughout the night. There is a nice upper balcony area to sit at and the verandah too, but small. Laundry facilities are available.
Buccoo might not be the best place to stay unless you have a car although private taxis take you to the town for a really cheap price.
