Welcome to The Lookout Villa our holiday home in Tobago. It has recently been completed, and we are pleased to be able to offer it for holiday rental.
The Lookout stands in a rainforest clearing and boasts spectacular views of the valley leading to Englishman's Bay with its well-deserved international reputation. Here, golden sands and palm trees fringe the warm Caribbean Sea, and the sounds of the waves hitting the rocks and the beach transmit up the valley to the house.
The Lookout is situated in 1 acre of rainforest. Access is by dirt track a 4x4 is necessary, particularly in the wet season. The land falls steeply away in front of the veranda, and whilst relaxing there you will see all manner of bird life, including flocks of parrots flying overhead, humming birds and large hawks, the beautiful blue crowned Mot-Mot as well as the national bird of Tobago - the Cocrico. If you are a bird watcher, you will be very happy. If you are not a bird watcher, you soon will be!
The Lookout is a large, single story holiday villa, built in traditional style of wood. It offers highly comfortable holiday accommodation for up to 6 people. Due to its high ceilings and fans, it remains cool inside without the need for air conditioning.
To the west of the house we have planted an area with fruiting trees, including bananas, mango, lime and coconut. There are also several pineapple plants next to the veranda. Feel free to pick anything that is ripe!
The Lookout is an excellent base from which to explore the rainforest jungles and the surrounding villages. There is superb snorkelling in Englishman's Bay, and the neighbouring Castara Bay. Castara Village also houses several good restaurants, from basic to more upmarket restaurant. Further away are the protected rainforest, and villages of Speyside and Charlotteville. Scuba diving is possible round most of the island, although you will have to travel to the dive schools.
