Built in the early 1990’s on Bamboo Ridge, Englishman’s Bay, Tobago, Parrot Estate Villa offers unspoilt views down to the sea and surrounding rugged beauty, a real Caribbean holiday retreat.
Welcoming couples on honeymoon or families on holiday, with a master bedroom joined by a twin room and two bathrooms, guests are treated to a mixture of contemporary facilities and Tobago traditional décor and design.
New appliances have been included in the kitchen and lounge. American style amenities and an extensive collection of DVDs with family favourites are all provided to create an air of luxury during your holiday in Tobago.
Surrounded by extensive mature gardens containing ornamental Caribbean flowering trees and shrubs, a variety of tropical fruit trees and it’s own vegetable and herb garden’s, why not make yourself a rum cocktail and take in the magnificent views of Tobago from the gazebo? Based next to Tobago’s protected rainforest with walking trails for keen trekkers, don’t be surprised to find local wildlife and tropical birds searching for food near the villa.
The holiday villa is located in between the quaint fishing villages of Castara and Parlatuvier – each with their own idyllic beach - where you can find a selection of Tobago’s typical restaurants and bars. As you would expect a number of sea based holiday activities can be experienced with scuba diving open to all levels and snorkelling equipment available for guests use in the villa.

My wife and I have just completed stays at four Tobago vacation rentals over a 5-week period. Parrot Estate Villa (PEV) was one of them (1 week) and we had expected it to be the highlight of our vacation. In some respects, it was, but some aspects of it were the lowest-rated of our four rentals.
The things we liked: well-organised property owner with very helpful vacation planning information; friendly and engaging property manager (Jason); privacy on the 1-acre site; tranquil views; steady hilltop breezes; relaxing in the gazebo; eating meals on the verandah; cooling in the pool; watching the birds and wildlife (agoutis).
Our disappointment was the condition of the property, which was evident on arrival. We started to draft this review with a list of things in need of “TLC” (the phrase used by the last two writers in the guest book). However, it is easier to say that nearly everything we used or looked at would have benefited from some attention. Each item on its own could be readily overlooked, but the totality of it was disappointing ... and we almost injured ourselves the first time we tried to sit on the living room couch. Also making a poor first impression was the bathroom sinks, microwave and stove had not been cleaned after the last guests.
We believe the rental rate was fairly set compared to the other three properties at which we stayed, so PEV’s rate does include a modest discount for the condition of the property. And out of curiosity while staying at PEV, we visited the other nearby rental properties that we had originally considered before choosing PEV. In hindsight we concluded that PEV was still the optimal choice for us in this area.
So in summary, we cautiously recommend this property for a relaxing, private, quiet stay amid beautiful scenery and close to our favourite Tobago beach, Englishman’s Bay. Just be aware of the property’s condition.

Parrot estate is owned by mr Jean Guye of Switzerland, a man with a deep love of Tobago and a wealth of information about the Island. The house itself is immaculately upkept and his staff of gardener and cleaners very proficient.Mr Guye also naturally expects his guests to show reasonable respect for the property. The house has a very good overall plan and a lovely gazebo. It has fans, but no aircondition and no pool. It has a lot of hammocks, a nice large well-kept garden stocked with fruit trees and lovely flowers and hummingbirds and also a fence and gate for security. I enjoyed every minute of my two-week stay even though a pool to cool off in would have been even nicer. Mr Guye as such gave tremendous assistance and good advice and also took time to call from Switzerland to ckeck if we were fully pleased with everything.
The villa is quite far off the beaten track although there now are 9 houses in the 45-acre vicinity.It is just a 4 minute drive to Englishman´s bay and has a view to die for.
