Thank you so much for letting us stay at this amazing house on the hill! We had a really great and fun time in Tobago. Went around the Island but our favorite beaches are : Mt Irvine Beach and Pigeon Point Beach. Met Pablo, really nice guy, really helpfull.Went on a boat trip with Owen all around the Island up to Castara where we stopped on the beach and had some nice food with the locals Jemma's kitchen in Speyside - gooooood food - I want some more of this fruitbread pie - Yum! We met Mark who is lovely. Thanks for all your tips of some great resturants to go for dinner.
All in all we had a really great time - also went to Sunday School and The Shade. We need more of these clubs in London. Music was Fab.
Thankyou for everything.

Brilliant house and a beautiful Island. Enjoyed our stay with the grasshoppers, fruit bats, geckos, birds, crickets, and other animals, but not the mosquitos.

Another great holiday in your fabulous house. we love the living room / verandah where we can experience all the sights, sounds, weather and wildlife of Tobago.
The new moon rising, the stars like diamonds in the sky, the glow bugs twinkling in the trees like fairy lights while the resident bats from the tool cupboard swoop around you. The garden is growing beautifully and we sampled the enormous creamy avocados, lemon bananas and mangos.
Jenny's river garden is located to the right of the steps by the water pipe, plants we collected on our trek along the river to the waterfall with Mark, I hope it survives!
From the verandah we saw mot mots, blue tanagers, palm tanagers, grass quits, silver beaked tanagers, common black hawk , banana quits, house wren, red - crowned woodpecker, tropical king birds, mockingbirds, a bare eyed thrush building a nest, the resident doves and green parrrokets. We heard the whistling frogs, the bleating goats, the clicking gheccos and the numerous bird songs. The angelic soulful singing from the church and hugh 3"! brown flying beetle flying in at night.
Beaches and swimming, especially snorkeling are brilliant!! A huge stingray swam beside us, close enough to touch, at Mt Irvine bay just in front of the cafe in the shallow water by the rocks, we could hardly believe it!! We saw loads of other wonderful fish - rainbow parrotfish, french angelfish, numerous blue angelfish and many many more. Loved the pelicans fishing off the sea.
Did some liming at a big party at Mt Irvine with brothers with vision djing. Met Pablo, Jason and other lifeguards.
Al in all a wonderful holiday. Thanks so much.
Love Peter and Jenny

I have stayed here twice now over the last couple of years.
I love this place.................. it feels like a home away from home.
The location is great to get around the island, esp the market for fresh fish and produce. If you need to pick friends or family up from the ferry its a five min drive.
Airport is 20 mins if you drive like me:) i would recomend this to anyone who wants to feel the true spirit of Tobago.x
