We stayed at the Villa for a week and can only confirm the other reports on this site. Its better than it looks in the pictures, Spotlessly Clean, Has a superb quiet location on a secure site with a few other villa's. Whilst we were there no one was using any other the other Villa's so we had full use of the great swimming pool which was also cleaned daily. The Villa also has its own jacuzzu which is totaly secluded and can be heated if required. Charmaine was a perfect housekeeper and cook and can only be congratulated on her service. We took the oppertunity of a day sailing as recommended in welcome pack and can only recommend it to anyone else using the Villa.

There was a great varanda with loads of seating and a hammock, although I can not comment on the comfort of this as Chris my old brother spent most days snoring from it. The walk to the beach was also no problem and it was in no doubt the best beach in the area.

We would definately stay again if we revisit the area..

The Villa is an excellent get away within Tobago, the accomodation itself is extremely spacious and is equipped with everything you need on a vacation. The maid service is equivalent to that of a hotel, with the villa being cleaned on a daily basis, beds made up etc.

The biggest asset for the villa would be the private hot tub, which is a great location to hang out with several friends and family. The only addition I would make to this would be to have an outdoor music system and bar area, where you can listen to some music whilst in the hot tub and have access to a small bar area as against having to go up to the kitchen, but this is a minor point.

I will certainly recommend this villa to anyone, over and above any hotel in Tobago and other villas in its class...a definite must visit for all visitor to the island...

I just wanted to give a short report on our stay at Petit Careme apartment (not the Villa).

Firstly, the location is beautiful. It is set in well-tended, landscaped grounds with lovely trees and plants everywhere. The swimming pool is lovely and the place overall seemd very quiet, which is just what we wanted. There are 5 villas in the complex and they are all well separated and you don’t feel at all crowded.

Petit Careme, as some will already know, comprises a villa and an apartment underneath. As there were only two of us, we booked the apartment. It was really lovely. We found it to be spacious and clean and very well equipped. The air conditioning was a godsend on occasions as it did get pretty warm (no, really...). As it happens, Merilee and Rawle (the owners) were staying in the villa upstairs (by the way, the apartment has a completely separate entrance). Merilee and Rawle were very welcoming and warm and even provided us with ‘emergency rations’ whilst we sorted out our shopping. The lovely Charmaine came 6 days a week to clean and did a great job too...we didn’t try out her cooking but by all accounts it is marvellous...maybe next time.

All in all, we had a great time and I would recommend Petit Careme to anyone who wants well kept, clean and spacious accommodation (we had a quick peek upstairs and the villa is huge too!).

If and when we go back to Tobago, we will definitely be looking to book Petit Careme again.

We had the most amazing time at Petit Careme. The Villa was beautifully present and our stay was made special by the wonderful cooking and housekeeping of Charmaine. She is most definitely one of Tobago's gems. We would recommend to anyone who is looking for a holiday combing relaxation, comfort and style, and don't forget to ask Charmaine to cook otherwise you will certainly be missing out!

I stayed at Petit Careme in April, 2007 with my family - husband and two sons, ages 3 and 8. The experience was absolutely lovely. The apartment we stayed in was pretty, cozy and clean with all appliances in the kitchen and a thoughtful provision of basic amenities. Whatever was not available was easily obtenable from the housekeeper, Charmaine who was readily helpful, and very pleasant and efficient. Although the apartment well suited our purpose, I had the opportunity to view the villa above which was absolutely breathtaking. No wonder it won the "Villa of the Year" award! The overall landscaped grounds were beautiful and included a pool with an adjoining jacuzzi which doubled as a convenient 'kiddie pool'. The groundsman was also pleasant and like Charmaine, willing and helpful as required. Petit Careme was ideal for our situation as a young family with two energetic boys, but would be equally ideal for a honeymooning couple, or as a single persons retreat, whatever the situation... as it offered much in the way of privacy, security and idyllic charm. Babysitting and meal preparation by Charmaine was also optionally available. A vehicle though was a must, because of its location but everything (grocery store, beaches, etc.,was a short drive away (five to fifteen)minutes. Overall the experience was very positive and relaxing. I'd love to stay there again and highly recommend it.
