Sapodilla is een self catering vakantie villa gelegen aan de zuidwestelijke kant van het eiland met uitzicht op de Caribische Zee en op loopafstand van de kristalheldere wateren van Grange Bay. De indeling van de villa is open en luchtig met louvre ramen die het mogelijk maken de verfrissende zeebries te vegen door de hele villa. Er zijn vijf ruime slaapkamers met elk een eigen badkamer en vier van de kamers elk heeft een aangrenzende kamer voor de kinderen, een goed uitgeruste keuken, een eethoek die uitmondt in de grote woonkamer, een wasserij, kabel-tv en een groot rechthoekig zwembad. De lange overdekte veranda overspant de lengte van het zwembad en leidt naar het zwembad dek dat is uitgerust met ligstoelen, tafels en stoelen, parasols en voldoende ruimte om te zonnebaden. De veranda is uitgerust met een eettafel die plaats biedt aan twaalf personen. Deze villa biedt de privacy voor iedereen die om te ontspannen in een verfrissende en ontspannen omgeving, maar het is niet geïsoleerd.
Deze villa is ideaal gelegen als de meeste van de populaire stranden zoals Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Buccoo Bay, Grange Bay (loopafstand), Mt. Irvine Bay en Stone Haven Bay een paar te noemen, zijn binnen 10 minuten rijden of minder weg. Er zijn restaurants in de buurt van de villa biedt een scala aan lokale en internationale gerechten. Gasten van Sapodilla Villa kunnen zich verheugen op een rustig, vredig en prive-omgeving om in te ontspannen.
This place is excellent for a large family/group vacation. However, the pool is designed for kids, professional swimmers and very tall people. There should be a stainless steel divider that separates the kids section for the exclusively 6ft section. In addition, the 6ft section should be repaved in a manner that would allow a gradual transition from 6ft to at least 4ft. The average adult cannot stand up in the swimming area of the pool without submerging. The kitchen is very large but the utensils, sinks and appliances are arranged very awkwardly. Finally, on the roadway to the beach there are signs posted that reference "poisonous toxic plant", I believe a signs should be place directly at the compound's gate so visitors are aware before heading to the beach because most people may overlook the signs on the roadway. Other than the fore-mentioned I would recommend Sapodilla Villa and revisit to see if these changes are adhered to.
This was the first time I was traveling with a group of 20 for Christmas and may I say that we were all impressed with Sapodilla villa and what it offered us. It was even better than what we expected from the website. There was ample room to accommodate our large party. For those with small children the bedrooms are set up where you would have a king bed in one room with an adjacent room with two single beds for small children or other adults. Each room had a bathroom ensuite and the adjacent room (with the exception of 1 room) had an ensuite as well! The bunk room was great for the kids but I would suggest some type of safety barrier for the top bunks. Lots of seating areas to relax or engage in lively conversation. The pool was perfect for young and old. Having the sea right in our backyard with the waves crashing in was PERFECT. The kitchen was HUGE with 3 fridges to store all your drinks and leftovers. We actually hired someone to cook for us for a couple of days which was quite affordable. Miss Opal, the housekeeper was extremely pleasant and helpful in terms of guiding us as to where to shop and how to navigate throughout Tobago. The management on the whole was really helpful given a hiccup before arriving but they were quick and expeditious with a resolution so I commend them highly for that. They even called during our stay to ensure that we were happy with the accommodations and we had settled in well. The convenience market is a short 5-10 minute walk where you can get all your provisions for the duration of your stay and the prices are quite reasonable. Grange Bay is a 10-15 minute walk and the water there is very clear and was so warm! Mt. Irvine Beach is another 5 minutes from there. Quite rocky but the snorkeling was AMAZING! The locals are so friendly and nice. We also headed down to Store Bay and did the glass bottom boat tour (highly suggested) with a stop to the Nylon Pool.
PROS: location, cleanliness, views, atmosphere, absolutely no issues with cooling and lots of water, friendly staff, management responsiveness, tons of space to comfortably fit the entire family.
CONS: Gardens could have been more maintained, bathrooms could use a bit of updating without losing its charm, some minor fixes around the house needed (lamp posts in the yard,the lock for the powder room). A vacuum for Miss Opal to her job more efficiently would help.
Strongly recommend this Villa!!!! A gem!
I brought a group of 22 to Sapodilla Villa for a relaxing few days and that is exactly what it was. We had an amazingly great and wonderful time, we will never forget Sapodilla villa. The house was enchanting, inviting, warm and spacious! Exactly what you see in the pictures is what you get and so much more. Everyone enjoyed their time and wants to return someday soon! In addition to the amazing house, the pool and sea view was breathtakingly lovely, inviting, and so enjoyable! WOW! Lis our rental agent was extremely accommodating and stress relieving, she helped make our time at the villa that much more enjoyable by going the extra mile and doing whatever was in her power to help us out whenever a need occurred.... Thanks Lis! they don't come better than you! Yevonne the cook was great she made our first meal and it was delicious but not enough! We all could have done with second helpings! The rest of the staff was also great, Jennifer and Toysilyn was always on hand and ready to help but never in the way. My team and I highly recommend this villa! But pleeeease leave room on the calendar for us. We will be back! Thanks so much!
Our group of 23 loved our stay at the Sapodilla Villa. It was a perfect place to house the guests for our wedding. The villa is extremely spacious and open, with large bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was complete with 3 refrigerators and full of everything you could possibly need. Absolutely incredible! We were so satisfied with the villa and would love to stay again. The pool and sea view were also spectacular. Very reasonably priced and perfect for large groups!
From the beginning, the friendly service of booking agent Lis Pereira was truly a joy to speak to and work along with. The maid service was also very friendly, we loved her pumpkin punch. A very clean, comfortable and safe Villa for any large family who truly wants to get away from the busy streets of Tobago. With the ocean view, clean swimming pool, large breezy deck...you can truly clear your mind and have a peace of mind. Me and my production events team will definitely be visiting again soon. Thanks Lis for all your help! :) Becky
Our family just returned from a 5 day stay at this villa, the house proved to
be everything and more than we hoped . There was ample space for our group of 20+ as we also rented the adjacent villa.
There were fruit trees on the properties with ripe zaboca,oranges and mangoes for the picking. Our housekeepers Ynold and Yvonne were very knowlegeable, friendly and welcoming. We have to give special mention to
Yvonne who provided us with a list of directions,necessary phone nos.,addresses of grocery stores, bakery,gas station,meat stores etc. This proved helpful as we had a minor incident where one of our children required immediate medical attention. We also thank Francis the caretaker
from the other villa who was kind enough to accompany us to the local emergency in the middle of the night. Lastly, we must not forget to thank
our contact Lis , Her frequent phone calls to make sure all was going
right and her attentions to all our needs were met with extreme efficiency and professionalism, from our first enquiries about this villa to the settling of all details at the end made this entire vacation a most pleasant time. Lis, we also thank you for the caring manner and great concern regarding our child's mishap. Our cook Jennifer was fabulous, her culinary skills in the kitchen was second to none, her nightly local dishes of pelau, stewed oxtail,macaroni pie,and other yummy local fare left us wanting more. Jennifer definitely has a "sweeeet hand." The villa had ample room for all, the porch/verandah that ran the length of the pool was a great place for everyone to hang out . The area on the other side of the pool was a great place to hear,see and smell the ocean while enoying your morning or evening beverages. The three fridges in the kitchen was a great bonus for a large crowd as we could designate one of them a "drinks" fridge. Our only suggestion to the owners of the villa would be to consider air conditioning the main living room area, we had a couple of rainy and still nights with not a hint of a breeze and it would have been nice to have been able to close the doors and turn on an AC, as a result we were eaten alive by the mosquitoes. In concluding this review, our enjoyment of this villa ranked highly, with the nearby Grange beach being as added bonus,this beach reminded us of Store Bay beach 30 years ago, unspoiled and uncrowded.
Hope to return someday.
