Villa Rennie - Reader Reports & Opinion
David Cooke from U.K. visited in December 2007 and awarded
The villa and location were everything we needed for a Christmas and New Year break. Plenty of space, lovely grounds (flowers, plants, birds), good accommodation, efficient aircon, Brilliant pool. Easy to shop at Gourmet Foods, but a lot more fun in the "local" Penny Savers supermarket, the local fruit and veg stalls, and the roadside fishermen.
We had brilliant, sunny weather pretty much all of the time. One of the highlights being a Christmas Day BBQ and relaxing round the pool - fantastic.
Euphemia, Andy, the pool girl (don't recall her name) and Mr. Grant very friendly and helpful, but left us to relax in peace.
You just have to go to Sunday School and Buccoo - late and very loud!! We also liked the local bars around Canaan - the Saturday night local dance at the Green Room was fun (Milford Road, just before the Shirvan Road turn) - don't be put of by the dark interior and the totally local clientel!

We spent 3 great weeks at villa rennie and will definately check it out again when we next book our holiday in tobago
we've stayed in the mount irvine area many times and found villa rennie comfortable and very private
the beach and the fish stalls are an easy 5 minute stroll which meant we could walk down and snorkell off mount irvine beach and collect our fish for the bbq on the way back (after a little light refreshment from earl in surfers bar)
the house and gardens are lovely- we picked avocados mangoes and limes almost every day and always had a vase of lovely exotic flowers
the pool and terrace area are great we spent most nights out there having a bbq-the kitchen is well stocked if you like to eat in and having a dishwasher made it very easy-there's also a ice/drink dispenser fridge/freezer which we all used so no need to carry bottled water
the only thing that was a problem was not having spare keys as there were 8 of us going out in 2 cars and not always returning together i think we should have asked mr grant early on to sort out a spare set-but that aside we really enjoyed our stay and as i said we'll probabaly book rennie again if its available
