Orchid Villa Cottage - Reader Reports & Opinion
Ria Jones from Trinidad visited in June 2009 and awarded
I stayed at Orchid Villas' poolside cottage which was just as seen on their website, clean, tastefully decorated and with a fully equipped kitchen. The surroundings were lovely, with a number of different types of birds and butterflies dancing about the cottage and poolside area.
The real gem of this place is the owner. Very seldom will you find such a gracious, generous, entertaining and kind hostess. She was the icing on the proverbial cake for me boyfriend, friends and I during out time there.
I do not hesitate whatsoever in recommending Orchid Villas.

Three friends, my Bf and I decided we would go to Tobago and when I called to make reservations Elaine was very helpful and extremely friendly. She is such a doll, willing to help you in any way possible! As we landed,Elaine was there waiting for us. Upon arriving to the house, we were greeted by her two dogs Milo and Ashanti(really sweet pitbulls)! [EDITOR: the dogs are friendly Rottweilers, not Both apartments including the bedrooms and baths were clean; the beds were very nice and comfortable. The cable TV was very good and we took some time to play pool downstairs. On our last night we used the grill to make sum BBQ. Not to mention the swimming pool was absolutely clean and extremely relaxing! We really enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in the apartments upstairs. We truly had a lot of fun! This place is for the young and the old. Entertainment with serenity; the best combination for a vacation with friends or your significant other!
I have been recommending Orchid Villa Apartments to all of my friends when they go across to Tobago and I will continue to do so.
Keep up the good work Elaine!!

If i were to detail every thing there is to like about this place....there wouldnt be space for more reports.
i'll summarise this experience as EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, RELAXING, SCENIC & tons of FUN ( for the adventurous persons of course :) Elaine is a very pleasant person, and always does her best to make sure you get that "home" feeling. She's always enquiring whether more could be done to ensure your comfort. I was most impressed with the swimming pool/garden very scenic...lovely trees around the pool. the facilities are very clean, and there were even some board games in the living room ( which we spent most of our time playing) if your looking for a peaceful, relaxing experience, here's your place! You dont have to venture far for fun!! she even has a pool table & beers for some entertainment. we didnt utilize the gym but it was available. An evening chat/lime with Elaine was the highlight of the entire experience....a must have when you visit.
keep up the good work Elaine. You will be hearing from me again soon.

The stay was really nice. Elaine was very friendly and helpful, she was able to suggest a few activities/entertainment for us.
Overall, it's relaxing and peaceful if that's what you're looking for.
What more could you really ask for???

I stayed at Orchid Villa at the end of March this year and I must say that my stay there was very comfortable, relaxing and entertaining. I stayed with my boyfriend from Jamaica and my sister and her spouse for four nights.
The host, Ms. Elaine, was extremely great at her job. From airport pickup and drop off, to any advice necessary, entertaining chats at some times and even medicine for my boyfriend when I give him the flu, Ms. Elaine was very friendly and helpful at all times.
The apartment was very clean. The patio was my favourite place to just rock on the chair and talk enjoying the cool Tobago breeze (very clean and crisp compared to Trinidad). Her dogs gave guard and even play at times. All the utensils needed for a full meal were there and the bedrooms and bathroom are satisfactorily spacious.
We didnt have time, nor were we in the mood to hit any beaches but they were conveniently close. Otherwise the inviting pool, privately set in the back yard was another option for us.
Overall we loved staying at Orchid Villa and would definitely visit again during another stay in Tobago.
