Tamarind House Villa
average rating of 4.647059 based on 36 reviews

a beautiful place to relax

  • 3 of 5

Tamarind house is really a good location to spend relaxed holidays there. The huge house( (we were 3 instead of 6) is built on the top of a hill with a wonderful view over the bay of parlatuvier.

The pool behind the house is great, but it has no handrail to get in. We enjoyed also the big terrace. The garden with all the exotic flowers and animals (humming birds, lizzards, goats, male chickens, who waked us in the morning, dogs, we also saw a tegu and a gecko once....) is amazing.The access road is a little bit steep for older persons to walk down or come up. And the staircase behind the house is also without a handrail at the last three steps. That`s a problem for a 86 years old person.

The washing machine is rusty, but it worked. I missed a flexible tube in the shower.

I also looked for a cool box for our excursions, but I couldn't find one.

I hate waxed table-cloth, it had a lot of mouldy spots.I should have removed it myself!

Sharon the housekeeper was very nice and she cooked us a wonderful meal.

On the whole we enjoyed our stay at beautiful Tamarind house.

Reactie van de eigenaar Dear Margreth, thank you for your review, even though it is a disappointing 3 stars, the lowest we have ever received. I am sorry that your 86 year old friend found the house challenging. I did try to give an accurate picture and thought that the gentleman's mother who lives close by, and who had originally contacted me, would be familiar with the house, and if in doubt would arrange a visit to check suitability. There is a cool box, available for excursions, at the house (Sharon is always available, by the phone provided, for any queries), and of course you should have removed the offending table-cloth. I am sure you understand our need to provide protection for our lovely hand made teak furniture, especially for when we have children visiting with crayons and paints. My husband and I who own Tamarind House live in the UK and we are currently stock-piling items to take down on our next visit in April - we like to keep the house to a high standard and are constantly upgrading. We have on order a new washing machine (the salt air does unfortunately create rust very quickly), new pool chaise lounges and numerous soft furnishing and small items. I will bear your comments regarding suitability for elderly persons in mind for the future.

Our goal was to have a relaxing mini holiday & thats what we got.

The cleanest villa we stayed in by far and we have been in a few in Tobago!

Thanks Lesley, Sharon & Victoria!

Superbly equipped!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Tamarind House Villa this August was perfect. I totally appreciated the perfectly equipped kitchen as I was doing my own catering. Setting was nice, the sea bathing delightful, the pool pleasant, the only thing lacking was breeze. I suppose it 's just that time of year when it's still. A very comfortable dwelling otherwise. The homemade soaps added a nice touch and so did the great library of music and movies. I highly recommend this very spacious Villa if wanting to stay in a peaceful part of Tobago, surrounded by gorgeous tropical forest and emerald Caribbean waters.

Our favorite escape! 3 visits so far...

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Parletuvier and the Tamarind house for the third time this spring! After getting married there last year, we booked yet another trip. I can not say enough good things about this house and Lesley, who owns it - and Sharon who helps caretake. The house was, as it always is, in wonderful condition - beautiful, bright, airy, clean. It is a delight to visit and we had a perfect stress-free trip. The condition of everything is always great - clean towels and lots of them, crisp sheets, plenty of books and a great stock of cooking utensils.

Sharon stocked the fridge for us since we were arriving late and did a perfect job. She also cooked a simple, but amazing meal - and we had leftovers for days! The pool was clean and the grounds are immaculate. We also found a GREAT new convenience store at the top of the hill - a full selection of produce and all sorts of big-city items right here in our tiny fishing village. Great to see Imbie and Miss V at the Jetty market, cold beers, ice creams and lots of laughs! Also had a great time walking the back stairs to Glassgows as our "workout" on the way to get a cold shandy and play cards!

This is our favorite getaway and we will hopefully be coming again next year. There is truly no place like it! And Lesley, Nick and Sharon are the most wonderful hosts!

Reactie van de eigenaar Thank you for writing such a great review, lots of new info and an accurate picture for future first time guests, which is very useful in an area which is continually evolving. We are always delighted to have you stay, knowing how much you appreciate what Parlatuvier and the locality have to offer. It was so special for us that you chose to get married here last year too. After 9 years of renting we now have a growing number of return visitors which is really great, and a particular delight for Sharon who works so diligently on our behalf to keep our standards maintained. Looking forward welcoming you back soon..........

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a reservation for 10 days at Tamarind house and just returned home. The house is exactly as pictured, very large and well appointed and clean. The location is wonderful and the view of Parlatuvier Bay and the pier are beautiful. I could sit there all day. We even had fireflies at night which we hadn't seen since we were little. The back porch is equally as nice looking on the pool and the rainforest right behind the house. Parrots every day and huge palm trees in the hills of the rainforest with nice breezes. The pool was great, very clean and there is a grill which we used nightly as we bought fresh mahi mahi and tuna from the fishermen at the pier. FRESH seafood and it was very easy to purchase from them. We stocked up on groceries and liquor in Canaan at the Penny Saver but the small convenience stores in Parlatuvier had your basics. The locals are very friendly. The store right off the main ridge road in Roxborough (Pablos) was a great find. Very handy for more stocking up (better selection) and only a gorgeous 25 minute drive. At the T at the end of the main ridge road, take a right and it's on the left a couple of blocks down. We rented a car for our stay and once we got used to driving on the "wrong" side of the road it was fine. The drivers are pretty crazy though. We took day trips covering the entire island One thing we found out was that if you are planning on using an ATM for money, the ones around us didn't work and we ended up going to Scarborough where the ATMs worked for us. They are a lot more dependable on the south side but you have to deal with a lot of tourists and traffic down there. We loved being in the location we were in. You cannot go wrong with this property! Lesley, the owner and Sharon, the property manager are very helpful with questions. Sharon was right there for us if we needed anything, which we pretty much did not. The house was great! We dove and snorkeled through Richie (Wild Turtle) in Castara and he took us to dive sites not marked and a great snorkel spot at Rocky Point next to Castara. Pristine sites. Englishmans Bay was beautiful, a must. We would definitely return Lesley if you will have us!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! I can see why you guys built here, absolutely stunning. Don't hesitate to book this!

Spacious, stylist villa in good location - but some surprising design & maintenance problems

  • 4 of 5

The villa is spacious and its location overlooking Parlatuvier Bay allows guests to check out the local fishing boat activity and observe the rich birdlife in the garden. It’s an easy walk down to the beach and jetty where we bought some lovely fresh tuna or to the small shops where we could chat with the friendly locals.

The sharp gradient into the sea means that snorkelling in the Bay is more a less a no no as swimmers are pounded back into the sand. Bloody Bay, Englishman’s Bay and Little Bay. Conditions are similar. A 3-hour rainforest walk with Fitzroy Quamina in the nearby Tobago Forest Reserve is a must. The fisherman’s coop at Charlottesville and Jemma’s Seaview Kitchen at Speyside (for a wonderful fresh lobster lunch) are musts also plus the excellent 3-course home-made lunch at Cuffie River Nature Retreat. Nearby Castara is a pleasant resort town with a nice beach.

We had a really enjoyable holiday–but it would have been better without some significant design and maintenance problems:

• The house’s stylish design ignores some basic Caribbean ventilation principles. The dark cedar wood attracts heat, which sometimes makes internal conditions oppressive, particularly at night when the heavy external doors to the bedrooms must be closed for security reasons and to keep the bugs out. (The somewhat flimsy inner louvered doors do not have screens, nor do they provide adequate security). So, to enjoy a comfortably cool night’s sleep in any of the three bedrooms it's either the ghastly AC or compromise your security.

After 8 years, there are signs of wear and tear and inadequate maintenance :

• The spacious kitchen is generally well equipped with large working surfaces but: one of the stainless steel frying pans has a distorted base; none of the kitchen knives would cut; several plastic handles of the poor quality cutlery have separated from the metal inviting embedded dirt; the broken teapot lid is a health hazard.

• The BBQ is a small gas grill, which is not fit for purpose. First, the gas bottle was empty. Then, the valve was faulty so could not deliver adequate gas pressure. So, no BBQ.

• Difficult to regulate the water temperature and pressure from the showerheads. A more modern shower rose might solve the problems.

• No maid service but in the Tropics you need a midweek linen change

• Cleaning could be better: 2 long-dead roaches on the floor; kitchen cupboards a tad grubby.

Not being a cheap rental, we did not expect these probs.

Reactie van de eigenaar Dear John, Thank you for your review and though I am pleased to hear you had a "really enjoyable holiday" we are of course very sorry to hear Tamarind House did not come up to your expectations. We have found that most holiday makers in Tobago require air-conditioning in the bedrooms and therefore windows and doors should be closed at all times when these are running. For those few who do not like air-con, and wish to sleep with windows open we provide mosquito nets. We would not recommend leaving doors open when asleep at night, even with bug screens in place, for security reasons, and therefore the fitting of these would be unnecessary. Our "flimsy" shutters are solely for keeping the light out. I am sorry that one of the frying pans has developed a distorted base and that the kitchen knives were rather blunt (there should be a knife sharpener in the utensils drawer - I will make a note to check this), and I will also ensure cutlery is checked and replacements purchased where necessary. Thank you for pointing these things out. Since your visit the Weber outdoor grill has been fitted with a new valve. Water pressure in Tobago is always a problem, mainly in that there is too much. In order to get water to the homes up in the hills the pressure down below can at times be very high. If we lose power in the area we have gravity fed water from a tank and then pressure will be lower. This is all part and parcel of living in a remote part of the island and can effect pressure in shower heads and taps. We have done everything to ensure we have emergency water, light, and cooking facilities in case of power failure. We offer a mid week maid service and linen change at guests convenience. We have had a very busy season and are now undergoing a comprehensive maintenance and cleaning programme. Our home is regularly maintained and upgraded but the dry season this year has been harsh and I dare say the sanding and varnishing will have to be repeated again soon. Best wishes to you and I hope that your new home in St Lucia will meet all your expectations.
