Worst stay at a villa in Tobago! the pictures on the site are extremely misleading. we checked in on Carnival Tuesday and was so disappointed, I don't know where to start! 1. the house wasn't cleaned properly, there were cob webs covering the sealing, garbage and beer bottles from the previous visitor in the garage. 2. the design of the bathroom is just STUPID!!! it was so narrow and uncomfortable for any adult of any size to bathe. 3. none of the televisions in the bedrooms worked except the one in the living room. 4. the AC only worked in one bedroom, all the others weren't working properly. 5. the patio furniture needed to be replaced and the cushions were dingy and old. 6. the pool wasn't cleaned and the shower at the side of the pool was mossy and smelt of urine. 7. Pool is VERY DANGEROUS!! it is very deep and there are no signs, only a broken line in the pool, which the average person may not see. 8. the advertise deck area, was broken down and seems to not have been cleaned in years. At 1800 per night and we stayed there for a week, I will definitely NEVER stay here again and won't recommend it!!! Not pleased!!

I am writing this as I am really upset about all the negative comments about Villa Rennie. Before having my children I have been here many times before, I love the feeling of Villa Rennie, making me feel at home, but in paradise. I have loved bringing all four of my children over the last 10 years and they have all wanted to come back year after year. After 20 years the standard of the villa has not changed in any way shape or form, only got better. I still get the amazing love and welcome from the lovely staff, especially Euphemia and Gus. Please do not listen to these negative comments, I am trying to find a way to bring all my family back to Villa Rennie next year as I always have an amazing time.
P.S My children love the all the amazing american channels on the t.v. when it rains.

Villa Rennie is old tired and has seen better days. I have no doubt that it was a very disireable residence years ago but not now. The gardens and pool are the only area's I could praise (be aware that the pool is very deep)The bed rooms are fairly small and are in real need of redecorating and updating the same can be said for the bath rooms. The living room is large and opens up nicely onto a decking area and the pool the fans the living room do not perform very well at all. The kitchen is small but functional.
The Villa is situated in a very quiet and secluded location and I must say we felt safe staying there. Be prepared for a considerable walk to the beach invluding a big hill to climb on the way back. You will definatly need a car.
I have been to Trinidad and Tobago on many occasions and I have fallen in love with Tobago and have no doubt that we will return in the future however never to Villa Rennie.
Do not spend your money on staying here there are far better Villa's available in Tobago. Do your home work and do not get caught out like we did!
PS Good luck if you try and complain to the owner I got know where at all.

This is a case when the pictures on the web actually do justice to a place. Villa Rennie is beautiful inside and out. It is close to the beach but tucked away in a peaceful neighborhood. We loved the birds, the breeze, and the beautiful pool.

I was very disappointed and very unhappy with my stay at Villa Rennie. It is quite a large property but not well maintained.
I sent an email to the owner of the property just recently addressing my concerns where the rental of Villa Rennie is concerned
I hope he seriously looks into those matters and fix them. Again the house is nice, but it needs maintenance when one is paying good money to rent such a Villa.
One point i would like to post. Most villas advertise their pools as large to draw the eye of the prospective tenant, however Villa Rennie's pool is not as big as it looks. And let me tell you, very very deep. So if you have young kids in your party like I did. Be Careful, if they are not good swimmers.
