Flores Bernicke from Germany visited in November 2014 and awarded   

Located over a stunningly beautiful bay, sourrounded by a huge exotic garden, Marbago is everything you might ever have dreamed of when you are a nature's lover.

The frontside of the house (with kitchen and daybed) consists of several high double doors that you could open widely - in order to enjoy a cooling breeze from the sea and enjoy the exceptional view over DeadBay. From the beds on the second floor (little library) you can see the waves breaking at the beach.

The kitchen of Marbago is fully equipped with everything that you might need: Coffee maker, large fridge with ice cube dispenser, blender, microwave...The dining room is build seperately from the house, beautiful spot with a big table, sourrounded by palm trees and protected by mosquito nets in the windows (in stead of glass, to make sure that you always have a nice breeze). We loved to eat, drink and relax there!

But my favorite part of Marbago is definitely the shower. The second bathroom is on the back of the house. You just take a step outside and find yourself encircled by a wall with exotic plants, no roof on top, so that you could enjoy the warm water and maybe some rain falling an you, too...

I also want to mention some things that people other than me might dislike about Marbago, because you should make sure that you know what you book here: Marbago is like a natural part of the rainforest. Despite of the comfort it offers, there are insects, lots of birds, frogs, bats and lizards, they don't respect your doorstep. Please don't book Marbago if you are not cool with that. But since there are no poisenous animals on Tobago and most of the insects are eaten by birds before you ever come to see them, there's nothing to worry about.

We cannot say enough positive things about our stay at Marbago House on Tobago Island last month. If you yearn for a tropical island paradise on acres of rain forest with an ocean view then Marbago House is the place for you. The house is beautiful in all ways with soaring ceilings and louvered doors that open the entire house to the beautiful decks which offer spectacular views of tropical forest with brightly colored tropical flowers and birds with the crashing surf further below. Hammocks await if one wishes a leisurely read or nap. The kitchen is well designed and includes a pass through window if one chooses to dine in the screened in porch with ample seating and delightful views. The master bathroom has a glass paneled door that opens to a private outdoor shower with sky blue tiles and a river rock wall with many orchids growing there. For the first time visitor Marta’s guide to restaurants , shopping and sightseeing, beaches, snorkeling, and points of local color was invaluable and always on point. And, although Marbago House is secluded it is located only a short drive to several villages offering great food and sightseeing adventures.

Tobago Island is unique in many ways. Although it has some of the most pristine rain forests in the world there are no poisonous snakes or bugs to be concerned about. The weather was warm and comfortable day and night. The people of the island were without exception warm, friendly and welcoming. Not only did we always feel safe, we felt nurtured by the island and its people. We can’t wait to return.
