Property Description

Provided by the property, or taken from their website

Perched on a hill in the centre of Parlatuvier, self-catering Tamarind House villa provides breathtaking, uninterrupted views of both the oldest protected rain forest in the Western hemisphere and one of the most attractive beaches along Tobago’s Caribbean coastline. Completed in April 2007 the rental villa with separate apartment is a thoughtfully designed and constructed log house. It is a perfect holiday retreat. From the verandas, pool, terrace and garden, guests can relax and watch the day go by - fishing boats leaving early and arriving with the catch mid afternoon, the daily migration of orange winged parrots, cocricos, egrets and corn birds to and from their favourite roosts, and much more besides. With the beach an easy stroll of 4 or 5 minutes away there is ample opportunity to swim and snorkel amongst coral reefs fringing the beach.

The spectacular fishing village of Parlatuvier is one of Tobago’s best kept secrets, shared by only the most discerning of the island’s visitors.

Parlatuvier is a working village with a perfect crescent shaped beach curving away towards pretty pastel beach houses, a small elementary school, a few tiny shops, a rum parlour and very little else. Set against a backdrop of stunning tropical rainforest Parlatuvier is Caribbean village life at its simplest.

On either side of Parlatuvier are the villages of Castara, Englishman’s Bay and Bloody Bay, each with their own beautiful beaches and a scattering of restaurants and small shops.  Fresh fish can be bought most days from the jetty in Parlatuvier and at the fishermen’s cooperative in Castara.  Bird watching, rainforest walks, boat trips, fishing trips, snorkelling and scuba diving are just a few of the activities that can be found within the village or just a short drive away.

Roy Hewlett from U.K. visited in August 2012 and awarded   

We were absolutely delighted with Tamarind House. The accomodation far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful sunsets each night from the decking and luscious rainforest behind with the call of parrots filling the air. Parlatuvier beach is still very local and we can recommend the fish straight from the boat that lands at 4.30pm every day. We wanted to get away from it all and the lack of commercialism made that possible.

Dr Ahmad a Khan from Trinidad visited in April 2012 and awarded   

Tamarind House is an executive style villa located in the picturesque village of Parlatuvier. The accomodation provided by the villa, namely three bedrooms with an available annex downstairs, is of a very high standard and the grounds and other ammenities included with the villa make staying there a comfortable and relaxing experience. You can cater for yourself if you wish, or just ask Sharon the housekeeper to pamper you with her delicious fare.

The best part of the Tamarind House experience though is its locale. Situated on a hillock overlooking Parlatuvier Bay, one can simple sit on the veranda and watch the sun rise magically out of the sea in the morning or disappear behind the western hills on the evening.

On calm days, Parlatuvier Bay is excellent for a cool evening swim and soak, more so after a long day of exploring the other facinating aspects of Tobago's cultural, historic and natural heritage. If sea food is your thing then fresh fish is available each day at the fisherman's jetty on the eastern side of the bay.

Parlatuvier Bay and Tamarind House.....a world away from the madness of Southwest Tobago. Definitely worth a stay if your batteries need a recharge.
