"Paradise Perfection!" Rumagin Villa ticks all the boxes of the idyllic beach holiday. Its wrap around views of the Buccoo Reef and the lush hills are complimented by the regular visits of Tobago's famous birdlife. It makes it very difficult to pick oneself up and get on down to the great beaches at the bottom of the hill, Grafton and Mt. Irvine Bays. This is where the villa really differs, its away from the bustle of Crown Point but perfectly positioned along the best coastline of the island. At the bottom of the hill that leads to Rumagin there is a grocery, fruit vendor and a couple of quiet bars.
Every amenity is present; we barbecued by the poolside on many nights, ate breakfast on the balcony and relaxed in the airy living room. The pool itself is not the typical plunge variety but rather an ample one with room and depth for lots of fun with the family.
Two of the bedrooms open onto the poolside while the third has those great views that I mentioned. Kids will love it and not want to leave......the same feelings that this villa will conjure in the adults!

Had a fabulous time is this lovely Tobago home. Gorgeous view from our patio. Great space and close to everything you need in Tobago, including Grafton beach which was wonderful.

An excellently equipped house, standing high with superb views over the coast. The pool is superb, and the verandah is comfortable and attracts the most amazing bird-life. The house is only a short walk from a fine fish restaurant and a fresh fruit stall. We have visited the house twice, and had a marvellous time on both occasions.

I took five days out from work to go to tobago and stayed in this villa. Place was very nice, no one to tell you anything, the bedrooms were great only problem the AC in one of the rooms were not working and they helped us out by letting us stay an extra night because we were planning on leaving a evening early. I loved the pool its very deep. If its one thing they have alot of seating area in the house, we had access to cable television, the phone, they had alot of books to read, i loved the washroom area very clean, the place is somewhat vintage. Quiet and lovely. I expected the view to be better but i guess the trees grew anf kinda blocked it. I didnt like that their were frogs that came out by the pool at night.

Our stay at Rumagin Villa was a great experience. Just by walking into the living room on the top floor, you are greeted by breath taking ocean views.
Privacy was welcomed and best of all, no noise or noisy neighbours. The pool was very large and clean and we enjoyed poolside grilling almost every night.
Since we cater our own food, it was refreshing to find that the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed and we had more space then we needed. Even the kitchen had a view, so it was a pleasure cooking there.
The sounds of Tobago's national birds, the Cocorico, was our morning alarm clock and we even saw a few in the trees close by...what a treat! The wrap around veranda was the best spot upstairs...but please walk with insect repellent or a Citronella candle as the bugs come out at dusk.
The managers at the time, Gillian and Helen, were delightful, helpful and very accommodating. When we had technical difficulties with the TV and Cable, a technician was on hand bright and early the next morning.
We would definitely recommend this villa to large families.
