10 persons stayed here. It was very adequate. Service by the housekeeper was good as well as from the agency. we will be back. Just one thing though, change the television set..flat screen would be nice

The villa was in a nice area close to Store Bay and Pigeon Point. Wifi which we were not expecting was fast enough for Skype. Tricia the housekeeper was friendly, helpful and welcoming. We were allowed to check in early and leave late at no extra cost and that was a big bonus. The pool was cleaned frequently. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with all the bedrooms having air conditioning. The security system was easy to use and gave added peace of mind.

I stayed at Cypress villa all was excepting for the refrigerator not working well also the beds are to small for a family with kids to stay in one room. Improvements in the sizes of the beds are needed to be looked at immediately.

This villa was kept clean and we felt safe with the security alarms, burglar proof on the doors and windows etc. The TV however, kept breaking down, unsure if it was a TV problem or a Tobago Network problem though. The maid was friendly and helpful. The real estate agents allowed us to check in early and leave later and that was a big plus. The pool was clean and thoroughly used by the kids in our party. Rooms and Kitchen were spacious and comfortable. I will use Cypres and recommend the villa in the future.

We were a group of 7 for the first 2 days, 8 for the next 4 days and between 9 and 11 for the last 2 days - a total of 8 days. Dealing with Caribbean Estates the agent for the rental was satisfactory. They responded to our queries and concerns in a timely manner.
We stayed from Saturday to the following Sunday at Cypress 194, the twin of the two Cypresses, the other being 193. The housekeeper Kathy Ann was excellent, and a great cook. She prepared a delicious meal for us one day. The villa itself was well kept and grounds adequately maintained. The pool water was about 12 inches below normal level because of a leak somewhere according to the maintenance guy. It also seemed to have more leaves than the identical one next door which was always very clean and at a good level.
Our first impressions upon taking possession of the villa at about 1 pm were a bit disappointing. The kitchen clock had stopped at 4.30. There were no basic supplies in the kitchen such as salt, sugar and pepper nor such utensils as measuring cup or pans for baking. There was a bare supply of kitchen utensils for exactly 10 people - some plates, cups, bowls, dishes and drinking glasses were chipped and even missing (during our stay we accidentally dropped one glass and was asked to provide $15 to replace it!). The exhaust fan and light for the stove were not working. A pressure cooker would have been nice. The BBQ was completely rusted and useless (this was replaced with a new one on Monday and we used it twice). Other suggestions for improvement - ensure electrical outlets in one bathroom and one bedroom are securely fastened to the wall; ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms and kitchen; serving trays, clothing rack for drying; check-list for kitchen utensils; mesh covers for food left on table; poolside utensils; bigger cutting board; 50% more dishes; drain catchers for sink. Perhaps the most disappointing aspect was the lack of internet access - being a mixed group, some of us had to maintain contact with homebase.
