My stay at this villa was an over whelming one, with a quite safe environment which I appreciate tremendously. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this private villa for anyone.

The villa has a well appointed kitchen with working appliances. The only negative is the small size of the freezer.The house is clean and there is adequate storage in all the bedrooms.
The housekeeper is very helpful.
Its just a short drive to the nearest beach

My family along with relatives and friends stayed here on September 3 (3 nights) and had a horrible and frightening experience.
To summarize, a burglar broke into this villa at 2:45am (first night) which my wife discovered. We chased the robber away but he left with my wife's handbag containing several hundred dollars, credit cards and our passports.
We dialed the emergency number (their version of 911) and no one answered. The resort security took 1.5 hrs to arrive at our villa (we had to drive to the guard booth and found the guard asleep and both barriers up). The police took another 1 hr to arrive. My wife and I suffered cuts and bruises.
The property manager (Mr Abraham) was extremely unhelpful. Upon further checks of the villa security, we later discovered many other security vulnerabilities such as:
House alarm does not advise the villa guard when set off (Abraham told us it did).
Numerous locks were not working.
Weak security on windows and other points of entrance.
No information on emergency numbers to call
We subsequently found out that this villa was a victim of a robbery in the past as well as other villas within the resort with some more violent than our experience. Mr Abraham has misled us on a number of information regarding the villa and the resort.
My wife, infant and I took the next available flight out of Tobago due to the security and personal violation.
Our holiday became a nightmare as a result of this. We spent the rest of our vacation scrambling to get replacement passports to get home.
We will never go back to this villa, resort, island and I personally wouldn't go back to the country.
The owner should personally visit this house of horror and overhaul its entire security system and process and fire the property manager.
My advice is DO NOT STAY HERE if you value your safety!

The villa itself was very quite and beautiful, everythig our group catered for, a relaxing vacation!
The only problem we had was the bathroom in the villa was not wheelchair accessible, and we were under the impression that the entire villa was, this was a major discomfort!

Excellent location! I was pleasantly surprised by the overall appearance,location and ammenities offered by this villa. The structure had a stunning location at the edge of the Plantation golf course.The only problem would be getting in and out of there if you don't have your own private vehicle. The layout of the house was exceptional. The service was great! I would definitely recommend this villa !
