Orchid Villa Cottage - Reader Reports & Opinion
Marc Street from Canada visited in February 2014 and awarded
My wife and I stayed at Orchid Villa cottage for 8 days in February 2014 during our first visit to Tobago. We found the cottage much to our liking and provided us with a good central location about equidistant to either coast from which to explore the island. The accommodations were private, clean and very low key in keeping with the general atmosphere of the whole lovely island. Our host Elaine Morganti and her wonderful dog Milo provided us with a comfortably equipped self sufficient cottage on the grounds of her private house located in the area of Mount Pleasant. A clean, very refreshing small in ground pool complimented the well furnished and roomy 1 bedroom cottage equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker (!), sofa and easy chair. A TV was also included as well as ample secure storage for clothes, luggage, and valuables. Orchid Villa cottage, detached from the main house has all the privacy that you need and Elaine the ever obliging hostess is always available when needed and her spacious well manicured property gives you plenty of privacy. Shops, banks and beaches are close by and are easily reached by car in 5 to 15 minutes. Having a car is highly recommended and Orchid Villa has private, secure parking on site. We are looking forward to a return visit to Tobago and won`t hesitate to stay again at Orchid Villa Cottage.

We. Stayed at this place for 4 days and was happy with the accommodations provide,d and the price. The place was very clean, everything that was necessary to make our stay comfortable was provided and the owner was very pleasant and helpful.
On the other hand ,the service at restaurants in Tobago leaves a lot to be desired. The quality of the food needs a lot of improvement. If Tobago is really serious about tourism, they need a brand new approach. Quality improvement, staff training, customer service are all areas which a focus should be placed. There are many places in the world which have far superior offers and much better prices than Tobago and people want value for their money and an enjoyable vacation. Tobago can do much better!

Staying at Elaine's was relaxing and quiet. Elaine is very warm and welcoming and not intrusive. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
I absolutely recommend Orchid Villa to anyone wanting a private getaway.

My wife and I stayed at the Cottage in August 2012. We were very satisfied with the accommodation.
It was clean and comfortable for two persons and the kitchen was adequately equipped. The pool is conveniently located immediately outside the cottage door.
The only negative was that we expected cable television and this was out of order at the time.
I would recommend having a vehicle as it's a little off the road.
Some persons are hesitant to rent when the landlord is on site but Elaine was never intrusive.

My family and I (6 persons) stayed at Orchid Villa Apartments for a period of 4 days and 3 nights. We rented the Apartment 2 and the studio apartment and I must say that our stay for that period was our best thus far in Tobago! This accommodation of our choice was chosen based on the many good reports we read from other persons who stayed there previously. The place was well kept, very clean surroundings, great facilities and very spacious living room, kitchen and bedrooms. The host Ms. Elaine was very pleasant, helpful and approachable, making our stay there a great one indeed! I would recommend this choice of accommodation to anyone looking to have an enjoyable stay in Tobago with their family. We hope to visit again soon!
