Apartment Two & Three: Studio (Lower Floor)

The lower floor of the house is separated into two one-bedroom apartments. Prince can unlock a connecting door between the adjacent living rooms, transforming the ground floor into a spacious two or three bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. Both apartments are of similar size, identically equipped and essentially offer the same high level of clean, spacious, comfortable accommodation.

Apartment 2 BedroomThese apartments face the garden, with side views out to sea from their balconies. Apartment 2 is located to the left, with its side aspect adjacent to the swimming pool and beach. Apartment 3 is next to the car park and has a marginally more restricted view of the sea. However, it is fractionally larger than Apartment 2.  A solid wall separates the front balconies of both apartments, offering privacy to residents.

Both of the lower apartments were occupied during our stay. It was therefore not appropriate to carry out a detailed examination of the accommodation, and we certainly couldn't expect guests to clear personal possessions from view to allow us to take photographs. Therefore, whilst the information below is accurate, the photographs were actually taken during our 2007 visit. The apartments are now appreciably more attractive than shown in these photographs.

Apartment 2

Apartment 2 Living AreaOffering a total floor area of 41m2, excluding the front balcony, the apartment is spacious by most standards – and exceptionally so by the standards of this level of accommodation.

A 5.2 x 4.8m living room dominates the front of the building. Light grey floor tiles help to generate a feeling of space and light and a lovely cool touch to the foot. Both the living room and bedroom have their own air-conditioners.

The living room is furnished with a dining table and four chairs, a fridge-freezer, bottled gas 4-ring oven, kettle, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a reasonable selection of crockery and cooking utensils, etc. A small kitchen island separates the kitchen area from the seating area.

Two settees grouped around a TV set provide a spacious lounge area, but I cannot imagine that many guests would use this in preference to sitting on the balcony. iPod docking stations are now provided in all three apartments.

Apartment 2 BedroomThe 4.2 x 2.75m bedroom is fitted with a queen-size bed, bedside tables and touch-sensitive lamps. A new cypress wood wardrobe has been created since our last visit and clothing storage is adequate for a beach holiday. The bedroom is fully air-conditioned with another quiet and efficient modern split-level unit.

A relatively small, but adequate, bathroom leads off the bedroom. The bathroom is simply furnished with a washbasin set into a wooden vanity unit, a toilet and a fully tiled walk-in shower. A shaver socket is provided in the bathroom. Hot and cold water is provided throughout (not always to be expected with lower-priced Tobago accommodation).

Apartment 3

This apartment is so similar to Apartment 2 that it would be pointless to describe it in detail. It is marginally larger than Apartment 2 and this extra space is to be found in the bedroom which has a double bed plus a large (42-inch) single bed. Once again, both the living area and the bedroom are air-conditioned.

Guests can optionally reserve Apartments 2 and 3 as a three-bedroom unit that can sleep seven people. To achieve this, the living room in Apartment 3 is converted into the third bedroom.
