My Trinidadian family of 6, together with a UK family of 5, spent a lovely 3 nights at Sunset Reef Villa in July 2015. The property was ideally suited to us (4 adults and 7 children ranging from 3 to 15 years old). It was well maintained, well appointed and within easy walking distance of Grafton beach. The pool, though small, was greatly enjoyed by the kids. And the villa certainly lived up to its name with glorious Caribbean sunsets. We were fortunate enough to be there during a meteorite shower and that was simply bonus!
It was a pleasure dealing with the owner and his maintenance support staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The villa was clean and we had no problems. We felt safe and secure.
We would definitely visit again.

I rented this property May 3rd 2014 for June 30-July 3rd. When I got there Gus was not at the airport to meet me as promised by the Owner Clive. It took us 3 hrs to locate the place becuase there was no sign. When we got there it was locked. I had to go to the neighbor to call Kathy Ann the care taker of the building. When she arrived the pool was filthy and the house was poorly cleaned. We (12 of us) ended up booking at Grafton Beach Resort. The Owner, Clive, refuse to refund me mmy $1050 US dollars to this date. I can email you the entire back and forth emails if you send me an email. This was the most horrible vacation my family and I have ever had and yet the owner refuse to reimburse us our money.

My family and I had a wonderful time in Tobago and the villa was much more than we expected, beautiful allover, and waking up purposely @ 5:30am just to see the sunrise over the beach view was absolutely breath-taking, I would recommend this villa to anyone to go down and enjoy the Tobago stay...love it love it love it!!!!!

My family and I stayed at Sunset Reef Villa in August 2012,to say the least that we were truly disappointed .The villa was
not prepared for our arrival which was confirmed via e mails to the owner.The pool was out of service for almost two days as they were doing maintenace as they were not aware of our arrival,the house was not cleaned also ,we had two babies with us ,so we took it upon ourselves to clean our rooms and the villa so that we could be comfortable, there was not even a good broom or mop, we had to buy a mop.The toilet in one of the rooms overflowed that same night ,which we had to clean up also.The yard was mossy and I slipped and fell while trying to get a hose to rinse off ourselves after comming from the beach,we could not use the much talked about phone booth as it needed to be throughly cleaned and it had a leak that when bathing the water would run off into the pool,The yard and surrounding garden was unkept and uncut.I complained and e mail the owner as to our situation,The manager Gus , whom we knew because we stayed at another villa( where we absoutley had no issues) he manages was truly wonderful in trying to get things fixed and organised as well as cathy the maid.It took two days out of our vacation as we had to bear all the noise that went with cutting the grass and pressure washing the yard, which took two days and was not completed ,the villa is a lovely villa in a nice location but needs much maintenance to be as advertised.I e mailed the owner asking him for a refund because of the incovenience we endured , i have had no response.I might add that we looked at the guest book and there were many favourable entries except for the one written just before we stayed ,they were disappointed too.If they read this may be they can express their disapointment.

My family and I were looking for a home-like atmosphere away from home and we almost found it at Sunset Reef Villa. The villa itself is well designed with a lovely pool and amazing views from the upper bedrooms and the balcony. The beach is really a 2 minute walk away. The house itself is clean and comfortable.
However the bathrooms and kitchen need some serious refurbishment. The bathrooms were clean and working but there were a lot of cracks in the bathtub. The kitchen itself is in need of a total overhaul, it is old with very used dishes and utensils. The surroundings were not very well kept, the yard was dirty, the garden a bit overgrown and the telephone booth shower was covered with scum.
That being said, we did enjoy ourselves thoroughly. It's an excellent location. We enjoyed early morning sea bathing, breakfast on the balcony with the birds, sunset views, the pool, even a movie in the little entertainment room. The housekeeper is very friendly and efficient and explained to us that the owners are having some financial difficulties which would explain the state of the villa.
We do hope that they can fix up the place to its former standard (from the reviews in the guestbook) so that we can return one day.
