Treat yourself to something truly unique. You deserve it. Intimate! Beautiful! Private! Your escape, your vacation.
This is the real Tobago... Look, just over the edge of the pool, beyond the deck... the blue Caribbean. So close you really can touch it. And there, right behind you, so green and lush. The brilliant orange highlights of Immortelles in bloom and always alive with the call of tropical birds... the majestic forest reserve of Tobago.
Surround yourself with all of Tobago's natural treasures and beauty. Your vistas are of sea, sand and forest. Several hundred feet of spectacular shoreline along the Caribbean coast, featuring both rocky cliffs and sandy shores. Five beautiful acres of mature forest, tropical gardens and landscaped terraces. Time stands still as you explore the grounds and stumble upon a relic of Tobago's colonial past or amble along the stream that trickles and drops through the property. Let adventure and romance take hold of you!
A private villa, with pool, has been designed for your comfort and enjoyment. Ideal as an intimate couple's retreat but very comfortable for a family of 4 or 2 couples. The living space has been distributed between 2 levels, ensuring privacy within the villa's shaded walls. The kitchen and living area occupy the main floor. Double french doors open this indoor living area onto a covered terrace, perfect for dining 'al fresco'. Also on the main level, but removed, is the first bedroom with queen sized bed and 3 pc ensuite washroom. The lower level includes the Master bedroom (queen sized bed), just off the pool deck. In addition, there is a small office outfitted with a single bed, ideal for an extra child. There are also complete bathroom facilities on this level.
With the all important outdoor living experience in mind, the villa has been edged with covered balconies on both levels, that overlook the sea. They are ideal for lounging and reading, or entertaining and dining. The lower level features a large open deck for sunbathing. It is also perfect for stargazing. The brilliant night sky, unaffected by artificial lights, is breathtaking. Look out over Bloody Bay or up to the heavens and enjoy the views. There is always something to captivate you.
The plunge pool is located on the lower level. A perfect depth for children's play and an ideal size for your refreshing dip. An outdoor terrace, complete with shower, separate the pool from the Master bedroom. This area of the villa is an intimate experience in itself.
Coastings is a small house, but very well designed, so it feels roomy. You will spend most of your time on the two decks outside. It is on a stunning site overlooking Bloody Bay, with attractive, well-kept grounds. The kitchen is adequately equipped for cooking (which you will be doing a lot of in this isolated location). Bedrooms are small, but well ventilated and have comfy beds. The sounds of surf, weather and wildlife fill the rooms all night.
The beach at Bloody Bay is a 10 minute walk down the road, and has rocky and sandy sections--good for swimming. If you're into snorkeling, be aware that the area of the bay with coral and reef fish is across the bay and must be accessed by car and a short but moderately steep walk down to the secluded beach area. Prior to and during our stay the seas were rough and underwater visibility was poor. The beach area, with a fresh-water river outlet, is an excellent place to watch a wide variety of wading birds and raptors. Local fishermen regularly set and haul seine nets in the Bay.
The only other house nearby is that of the owners (who were very gracious and helpful in every respect), but Coastings sits fairly close to the main road, so you will hear the occasional car or bus pass by. There is an always-locked security gate separating the property from the road. The need for this was unnerving, but its presence was reassuring.
The well-maintained "pool" is tiny but serves well its function as a cool-down spot.
During your stay you can expect regular visits from the owners two adopted dogs, who are well mannered and fun to be with. Take a walk anywhere and they will be at your side.
Overall, a unique and memorable place to hang out in the Boonies of beautiful Tobago.
