Kiskadee - Reader Reports & Opinion
Antonio Seijas from Trinidad visited in August 2008 and awarded
A fantastic home away from home. My children had a wonderful time and so did my wife and I.It's place in a great location close to the airport and beaches. There is a feeling of safety, so you feel very relax.
A little note must be said about the service from the people who were incharge of the running of the home, they were fantastic. Dion our security guy, very friendly, lu-ann the house keeper, she was great and not to forget Carrie, who picked us up from the airport, all fantastic people.
On a serious note the tiles outside the house around the pool area get very slippery when wet, my daughter fell twice so be very careful when in that area, but besides that it was a wonderful vacation and will do it again. Thank you.

Upon entering the premises we were overwhelmed and greeted by a well kept garden and the swimming pool which was just mmmmm perfect nothing was better than soaking in the pool both day and night it was so perfect that we didn't see the need to go to the beaches.The villa is gated and also has an securtiy system to protect you and your property so that your mind can be at ease while you enjoy the amenities of the villa or when you go out to enjoy the island and all that it has to offer.

We booked our two-week stay at Villa Kiskadee via the owners, who were very helpful and provided a lot of information on the villa, its facilities and things that we could do when we arrived. They also put us in touch with Sheppy for car rental and Harris McDonald for trips into the rain forest and the reefs for snorkelling. Having never been to Tobago before, their advice was really good to have and meant that we got more from our holiday.
The villa itself is really nice and well equipped. There was a housekeeper who looked after us really well and kept the place clean. There is a good-sized private pool too, which was maintained – as is the garden, which was full of flowers and attracted a lot of birds.
The villa has three bedrooms with loads of storage and hanging space. There were books, games and lots of brochures and leaflets on local restaurants, tour guides and places to see. There is a TV with cable and a phone, so we were able to book tours and tables at the restaurants from the villa, which was really handy. The villa was really secure too. There was an alarm, a safe in the master bedroom and the whole garden is walled or fenced. We felt very private, but not remote because Bon Accord is a residential area.
The kitchen had everything we needed – including a dishwasher, which was great! There were good supermarkets or food stalls no more than 5 minutes away. The whole place was spotless and the bathrooms were lovely, with good showers and towels provided (for the pool too).
We loved the birds that we saw from the garden and the walks that we took. By the end of our holiday, we had identified a long list of garden birds and there are marshes a 5 minute walk away, where we saw herons, jacama and all sorts of other water birds. There were several books on the birds of Tobago in the villa, which was really handy.
During the day, we sat on the patio in the shade or lay by the pool on the sun loungers. In the evening we often had a barbeque, which was great. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back to sample all the things that we couldn't on this holiday! We couldn't fault Villa Kiskadee!
A Perfect Week
I stayed in Kiskadee towards the end of last year and had the most fabulous week I think I have ever had. The villa was amazing - very clean, spacious, secure and had everything you could need. We did spend more time around the patio and pool due to the lovely weather and I am sure this spot is a mini version of heaven!
Carrie and Tour Tobago looked after us very well and were extremely accommodating of any requests we had. Such fun people as well.
We went on the snorkelling trip whilst there and I would definitely recommend this. Such a refreshing day being out at sea, in a speed boat with music playing whilst stopping every so often to have a dip in the sea. Unfortunately we missed the Sunday School due to heavy rain but when we visit again I have heard this is a must.
Shore Things is another must. Their food is delicious and the setting is picture perfect. Even if you don't have a sweet tooth you must try their cakes - I guarantee you will love them!
All in all I had an amazing week and am already planning my next holiday out there this summer. The only thing wrong with my last holiday was that a week is not enough!!
Thank you to everyone who made this week so special.
