Gardens & Swimming Pool
Bayview Villa is set in compact, but very lush and mature landscaped grounds. The garden is a riot of colour and attracts a huge collection of tropical birds. Guests share an attractive circular (7m diameter) swimming pool located on the ground floor of the property. The pool surround has half a dozen padded recliners and matching tables.
The poolside is a lovely place to relax or sunbathe. As guests tend to use the nearby beach, you will invariably have it to yourself.
All the windows of the house, and most doors, are fitted with discrete security grills. The garden gates are padlocked. Guests are issued with keys but, with no on-site management, they must clearly take responsibility for locking gates behind them. Each apartment is fitted with a small security safe. We understand that a full CCTV-based security system is to be installed.
We consider that the villa has achieved a perfectly acceptable balance of basic security without making guests feel that they are staying in a prison.
Bayview Villa clearly boasts an ideal location. It is one of very few rental properties where we can honestly claim that having your own transport is not essential. Bayview is within walking distance of what we consider the best swimming and walking beach on Tobago and the most useful cluster of shops, restaurants and facilities along the lower Caribbean coast.
The Bayview Villa apartments are clean, attractive, comfortable and beautifully furnished and the décor is probably the nicest we have seen on the island.
Put everything together and it is clear that few other properties offer a better overall package. Whether a couple or a larger family group, we feel that Bayview Villa should be on the shortlist for anyone looking for high quality self-catering holiday accommodation in Tobago.
