Stayed at Hibiscus Heights in 'Sweet Nest' for one week. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful, and made a point of being non-intrusive. This was greatly appreciated. The accommodations were simple, elegant, and very clean. The location was ideal, just a few minutes from the airport, but far enough to be away from the noise, hustle and bustle or Scarborough. A nice beach within walking distance, along with convenient eateries, and a local fish market that had the freshest fish that could be prepared at the room. Enjoyed buying fresh fruit from the local vendors and touring the beautiful island. Everyone we met was extremely congenial and friendly, and we made lots of friends. Took our own snorkel gear and found a number of secluded beaches with good diving and nice sand. In most instances, we were virtually the only ones there. Also delighted in hiking through the rain forest preserve and watching all the hummingbirds, motmots, and orapendalas. Took a few dips in the fresh water streams and waterfalls, and never felt crowded. Had a wonderful time in Tobago and would recommend Hibiscus Heights to any one considering a visit.

I totally enjoyed my stay here. Would recommend it to persons who want a getaway at an affordable price. My husband and I stayed in Sweet Nest and it's exactly what the name implies. I loved the privacy of the room. It's on the property, yet we felt secluded. The room was very comfortable. I liked the decor....very tropical. It had everything we needed. What striked me when I walked in was how clean the room was. The air condition though, needs servicing. However the deck was relaxing with it's fresh breezes and oceanview. In the morning we would have our breakfast out there and listen to the birds chirping. The owners were very friendly. We also liked the location, close to beaches and restaurants. It lived up to my expectation because what I saw in the video on the website was exactly what it turned out to be so I appreciated the truthful advertising. Will definitely go back.

BEST TRIP EVER! We had the BEST time at Hibiscus Heights! We could not believe our eyes when we first walked in, the apartment was absolutely beautiful, clean, and so spacious! The view from the balcony is stunning, and having a private pool made our trip feel so decadent.
Glory and Mike could not have been better hosts, they were so very helpful and took care of our every want and need. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport, had a tour guide arranged as well as a driver.
We will definitely be coming back with our whole family, and recommending Hibiscus Heights to everyone we know!

Myself and two friends spent a week in the Warm Breezes apartment of this stunning house.
The views are superb. The cleanliness is outstanding. The location is very convenient with one of the best beaches(Grafton) within walking distance, ATM and supermarket on hand and a lively local bar.
The extensive verandah's and swimming pool help to tick all necessary boxes and the living space and bedrooms are vast!
One downside is the lack of a wardrobe in the master bedroom- ahowever the owners are aware of this and are sorting out this omission.
Daily housekeeping is provided by the delightful Ingrid, who unobtrusively cleans and washes on a daily basis. Some guests may prefer not to have this daily service and perhaps this should be discussed with guests when they arrive to ensure this servie is tailored to individual requirements.
However these small points are intended to be suggestions, not criticisms and I would wholeheartedly give this accommodation a five star rating.

We had a wonderful time at Hibiscus Heights. Mike, the owner went out of his way to make sure our vacation was a success. The apartment had all the features as advised and was in great shape. We were only a short walk to a lovely beach. As another bonus, there is 4 local restaurants down the street from our apartment. They offered everything from local food, pizza to upscale dining. Joan, my wife and I have visited a number of islands in the Caribbean. While we always enjoyed ourselves, we reserve a special warm feeling for Tobago. The only please we really want to return to visit and see Mike again!
