Villa Christina - Reader Reports & Opinion

My family spent Christmas at this lovely Villa and enjoyed every minute of it. The place was clean and the staff friendly. It was near to groceries and the Mall, which was convenient, and it is a great place if you like a quiet time where you can observe the many types of birds that frequent the beautiful garden.
The only thing to mar the experience was the road to get there. I hope it is paved soon.

Though our stay at Villa Christina was a short 3 days the villa exceeded our expectations to the fullest.
It is definitely a home away from home - providing everything we needed. The rooms were clean and spacious and the kitchen very well equipped.
The pool area was also well equipped with lounge chairs and hammocks for relaxation.
The extra amenities such as the washer/dryer, baby cot and high chair were a pleasant surprise also!
Though its location is not walking distance to the beaches - the privacy of the villa was welcomed for our trip. (A car is recommended for convenience).
I found the villa through online search and had my reservations but those disappeared immediately as I entered the villa. One cannot ask for more than to feel at home on a vacation and Villa Christina provides this.
Steve and Dion were most welcoming and accommodating with organizing the rental and picking us up at the airport.
We had a fantastic time and have no reservations recommending the rental to anyone wanting to spend a relaxing time in Tobago!
I cannot wait to make my next booking!!!

We spent one week at Villa Christina following our wedding on Tobago.
The villa, was spacious, clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. One of the plus points for us was finding a villa that actually had an air-conditioned living space, ideal for socialising or just relaxing with a book and a rum punch of course!
It was obvious that the villa is well loved by its owners and it had a homely feel rather than just rental accommodation, which we really liked as the furnishings and decorations were all in good repair.
Dion really looked after us, meeting with us in advance of our stay to organise pick ups etc and providing us with an iron within half an hour of discovering that the one that should have been there had disappeared.
Lynn was one of the best housekeepers we've met on Tobago, extremely friendly and welcoming with lots of ideas of things to do on the island, while getting on with her job in the least obtrusive way possible.
The pool area was again well organised with sun loungers, tables and chairs or even a hammock if you were so inclined. The pool was cleaned regularly and was really welcoming on a hot afternoon!
The bedrooms were a good size and our bed was huuuge! We also had a walk inwardrobe and en-suite bathroom again with all the services we required. There were a further two bedrooms, one double, one twin - again very well furnished with a shared bathroom.
The only downside to the villa is the entrance road - it is really just a dirt track and could be very dark when walking back from a night out. However this was just a minor irritation as it meant that there was very little passing traffic :)
The villa is well located with a mini market a couple of minutes walk away and the larger supermarket also within walking distance. However I would recommend renting a car if you do decide to stay at Villa Christina.
We can't wait to book up again and would recommend this villa to anyone looking for excellent villa accommodation in the lowlands area of Tobago.

A group of us stayed at this villa as a vaction getaway. It was beyond what we excepted when we arrived at the villa. We had a great time and everything was well kept and it did not feel like a guest house or a hotel but it had a homely feeling to it which we loved. The layout of the place was great and we enjoyed the pool.
They ensured to cater for our every need even the baby. I would unreservedly recommend this property to anyone. We do hope to visit again sometime in the near future.
Great service, great place and great people.
Cool, clean and confortable.
Thank you for making our getaway a remarkable one.

A group of us from Trinidad stayed in two villas, Christina and Hallelujah in April this year for the Tobago Jazz Festival. None of us had ever heard of these villas and just by a lucky search was contacted by Paula Dengel who advised me that both villas were available.
Whilst the pictures on the internet are nice (particularly Christina Villas), the pictures do not do justice to the villas. When we arrived what we saw far exceeded our expectations, particularly as we knew nothing about these places previously and I was nervously hoping for the best, as the person who had made all the booking arrangements.
Besides Paula being extremely helpful and patient with me during all our arrangements and many changes, when we arrived we were met by Carrie Clement the property manager who was also extremely helpful and very welcoming. Carrie's bubbly personality and energy just added to our experience. She was always a phone call away and ensured that our needs were met.
I would strongly recommend these two villas to anyone looking for a great time and a great place to stay and I guarantee that you would be extremely pleased with your choice of villa and would rush home to tell friends and family about your stay at any/both of these villas.
