This beautiful three-bedroom, four and a half bath villa, along with its two-bedroom, one and a half bath guest house, is set on slightly sloping grounds, surrounded by various vegetation. Both buildings, which are connected by an open but covered garage, boast full-sized kitchens, dining-rooms and living rooms. There is a balcony off the master bedroom on the second floor of the main house, and a large porch just under this, both of which look out onto the pool. The guest house has a balcony looking out onto the grounds - beautifully maintained lawns, mango trees, citrus, and various decorative plants. It should be noted, though, that while this side of the property is bordered by the main road, this was hardly noticeable as the large trees on this side blocked off almost all views and sounds of such.
Both buildings are multi-leveled - the main house having three levels (including the outdoor pool level) and the guest house having two levels (with the kitchen, etc. on the ground level and the two bedrooms and full bath on the lower level.
The pool ... (sigh!) was perfect. While it was not huge, being possibly about 15 feet by 10 feet, and at its deepest about 7 feet, it is certainly large enough to allow a few laps every day. There is also an attached whirlpool tub. Because trees and shrubs surround the pool, there is also a sense of privacy from neighbours and the roadside.
There are also various pathways through the garden, which allows for a relaxing, albeit short stroll. The neighbourhood was also very quiet, consisting of several other large houses, but Sunshine Villas is located at the very end of the row of houses, which gives it a very peaceful and relaxing aspect. In spite of this, however, it is within twenty minutes of Scarborough, Gulf City Mall or Crown Point, with several pleasurable beaches nearby.
All in all, the perfect place in which to enjoy a few days in Tobago with family or a group of friends.

Enjoyed every moment of being there, would definitely recommend it to small families and friends. Beautiful villa with everything you need. there was nothing that was disappointing, the land scape was beautiful and the views were perfect, the pool was amazing. I would be there soon again.

A group of my friend stayed in this property in February 2008. We were spending the weekend in Tobago to celebrate the birthday of one of my friends. Our group comprised of adults and children and we all had a great time. Its a bit a far from popular beaches and night spots. But we were content laze around in the pool for most of our time there. We had a slight problem with sand flies, but probably had more to do with the time of the year than the actual property. All in all we were completely satisfied.

It was fabulous. The location is a little bit far from all the action, but I loved the peaceful and secluded aspect of it. If you do decide to stay, I suggest renting a car. The only complaint I had was that the jacuzzi is not heated. Overall, my party and I had a very pleasant stay and would definitely consider renting this house again.

Fabulous, fabulous & fabulous!!! Our stay at Sunshine
Villa (SV) will always be a vivid memory for us. Having only seen the website pictures & not having been to Tobago before, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Although you need a vehicle if you stay at SV, that should not be a deterrent. It is a wonderful property with beautifully landscaped grounds, A fabulous pool, and enough room to accommodate a large group ( our party numbered 14 - 9 adults, 3 teenagers & 2 young children). Of course we rented both units. So if it's an idylic Tobago getaway you are looking for, head for SV.
