The property photos and descriptions here and on AirBnb are accurate. The house is clean and very charming. It has lots of personality; we would describe it as "upscale fisherman's house". The deck is huge and overlooks the beach and fishing jetty. There are mature trees to the sides and rear that give privacy. The sandy beach in front is clean; the bay is generally calm; the snorkelling is "average" for Tobago but there is also excellent snorkelling at beautiful Englishman's Bay just a 10-minute drive away. The pool is a great way to cool off during the day. Lots of opportunity to interact with friendly locals. This is the only Parlatuvier tourist accommodation right on the beach.
We met various "Crown Point daytrippers" on the beach who asked to look around the house, and wished they had booked this property instead of their hotel. (And in our opinion, it doesn't make sense to come all the way to Tobago from North America or Europe and not immerse yourself in the local environment. It's unique and it's fun.)
The property manager & staff are very friendly and made every possible effort to help us enjoy our 2-week stay.
Our only caution would be to be aware of nighttime insects; we found it necessary to use the netting over the bed.

We have been coming to Tobago on holiday for the past 20 years and this is absolutely the best accommodation we have rented. The location, on the beach in quiet undeveloped Parlatuvier, is superb. The beach right in front of the house is uncrowded and quiet. Nothing disturbs the peace except for the bull frogs in the village pond. Fresh fish available every day on the jetty as the boats come in is beautiful. Everyone there was so friendly and,anxious that we enjoyed ourselves. The property is extremely well equipped and maintained. There,was nothing to beat liming on the deck, Carib or rum punch in hand watching the sun go down. Can't wait for our next visit!!!!

If you like quiet and peaceful with sun sea sand then this is the best place on the Island. We loved it! The breezy interior and the spacious well furnishe deck made a/c totally unecesssry and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves through open windows. Perfect.

We heard about this place from a friend and how great it was so we had to check it out. Let me say this is a little piece of heaven and more. The route to get there is beautiful and scenic as you pass along the mountains and coastline of Tobago to get there which is about 45 -60 minutes from the airport but the drive is worth it. The house is located in a quiet village which is very peaceful the people are very friendly and helpful. I could not believe how close this house is to the beach anything closer and you could jump of the patio to go for a swim. The house is very nice, comfortable, has everything you could need. The Master bedroom is huge with a a doorway leading to the patio, where you can sit and enjoy the view of the ocean and take in the cool ocean breeze. The kitchen has all utensils for cooking and is very clean as well as the bathrooms. The place is very quiet and safe we had all the windows opened the entire time absorbing the fresh air and calming sounds of the ocean. About 5 minutes walk from the house there is a beautiful waterfall with crystal clear spring water, the walk to is is amazing as you walk through a pathway with lush green trees and plants and passing by the streams created from the waterfall. This trip was unforgettable and can't wait to get back there soon. It is truly a paradise. The owners was amazing in communicating with us and made us feel like family.
Thank you Again

My husband and I spent 4 nights and 3 days here for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our initial stay was supposed to be 3 nights and 2 days, but we found that we needed more time to bask in the peaceful, dreamy, surreal and comfortable environment.
The cottage is cosy, relaxing, and self contained. The kitchen is huge, modern and well equipped. The master bedroom is cosy and the inviting especially given the large windows that afforded us a front seat view of the beach and the huge deck that lay behind the french doors providing an outdoor dining/entertainment room.
On mornings you could hear and invite the birds to share breakfast with you on the deck, after which you could relax and catch up on some reading. We partook thoroughly in the several fruit trees in the back yard, and took a couple strolls through the village. The villagers were especially friendly and provided a safe environment. The beach is an experienced swimmer's paradise, and there is a also beautiful waterfall a stone's throw away from the cottage.
One can see that the owners truly placed a lot of thought behind creating a getaway that provided comfort and relaxation while incorporating nature and beautiful scenery. We really have nothing negative to say about our getaway, and would definitely encourage couples, families and even youngsters to try it out.
