Hibiscus Heights - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Amanda Morrell from U.K. visited in May 2008 and awarded  Five out of Five

Hibiscus heights is simply beautiful. The sweet nest cottage was a delight and equipped with all the luxuries of home. The local 'grafton' beach is stunning and perfect for swimming. It is unspoilt and far quieter than store bay beach in crown point. Facilities such as sunbeds are also provided free of charge.

The local supermarket is well stocked and there is a pizza parlour and a couple of bars.

The owners are lovely and are on hand for any questions but equally they respect your privacy.

I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation!

I was already more than ten times in Tobago. "Hibiscus Heights" was most beautiful accommodation which I had ever booked.

The rooms fitted out tastefully and the service was great. Simply for feeling good, recommendable.

Thanks Gillian and Paul!

We so appreciated Paul and Gill letting us stay only 1 night in charming Sweet Nest. It was fully equipped with everything we needed and then some. Very comfortable and relaxing. Within walking distance to nice restaurants and great beach. Only negative is the noise from a local establishment down the street and some dogs.

My husband and I LOVED Sweet Nest. It was the best value we experienced during our month-long stay on Tobago. It is so cute and well equipped. There are lots of birds, including a mot-mot. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Stonehaven Bay (Grafton Beach) is a short walk, and it was a fabulous beach--large and beautiful with crashing waves that were so much fun to play in. The cafe on the beach served the best rum punches that we had during our holiday.

The only downside was the litter. On the walk from the beautiful cottage to the gorgeous beach, the roads were strewn with litter.

If you are looking for a vacation that allows you to escape to a paradise Hibiscus Heights will do that. We visited many Caribbean Islands and this by far presents the most beautiful vegetation, flowers, sea scapes, and people yet. This location allows you to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, the most friendly people who appreciate you, and refreshes you beyond words. It hasn't been overtaken by tourism...it is a pure example of a typical rural village in Tobago. Gillian and Paul are the perfect hostess and host who treat you like special guests. Paul greeted us at the airport, stopped at a supermarket allowing us to purchase the initial order and helped take our suitcases to our home away from home. The studio is fully self contained allowing totally independent living while there. We cooked some meals including fresh fish that we traced from the boat, the fishermen's on site market to the frying pan all within an hour. Flying fish, tuna and dolphin were prepared by myself during our two week stay but wasn't nearly as delicious as at the many places to eat located nearby. They can COOK! Whatever combination of spices used during preparation is the most delicious I have ever eaten and so reasonably priced. Where can you eat for $5 - $8 per meal? That includes chicken, fish, or steak with rice, pasta or salad. Harleqin's provides that in a open restaurant nearby. Joanne prepares all her own food which allows you to taste delicious local fare. Cecilia makes you so welcome at her newly opened business featuring fresh fruit, cake and ice cream, breakfast as well as main meals. She is so friendly that she gave US a parting gift when we left. The only cash machine on the Caribbean coast is located there as well as a small market, several restaurants, and internet. We felt so welcomed in that little settlement.

While there we walked down every street and road to appreciate the area. Roosters, hens and chicks, parrots in cages, unique flowers, sheep, gorgeous birds, as well as neighbourly residents made each outing an adventure. The beach is perfect for good walks, rock formation make a perfect background for excellent photos, water is clear with several choices of calm to lots of wave action. The heat of the sun was surprisingly not intense but the temperatures in the mid 80s made for what we call our nicest summer day back home.

The bus stop is nearby and for $2 TT ($6 TT equals $1 US) you can travel to Scarborough, the capital, and spend the day. Don't be in a hurry to return as they often travel using Tobago time. We always make everything an adventure so while we awaited the return trip we enjoyed observing the school children dressed in their uniforms. They were courteous, respectful and typical youth except they each wore the uniform of their school.

We had a private tour of the island which featured poui trees dotting the deep green hills, Charlotteville tucked away at the bottom of the hillside with postcard beauty and finished the day with a fantastic meal at the famous Tree House restaurant. Our guide even stopped along the twisting road to pick a ripe papaya for all of us to share. You can't imagine the intense flavour. One small example of the genuine friendliness of the people of that area.

If you want every day to seem like two, drop into a comfort zone, read books, go to the beach, walk ,enjoy nature and warm caring people, visit Hisbiscus Heights.
