Tamarind House Villa & Apt.
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Perched on a hill in the centre of Parlatuvier, self-catering Tamarind House villa provides breathtaking, uninterrupted views of both the oldest protected rain forest in the Western hemisphere and one of the most attractive beaches along Tobago’s Caribbean coastline. Completed in April 2007 the rental villa with separate apartment is a thoughtfully designed and constructed log house. It is a perfect holiday retreat. From the verandas, pool, terrace and garden, guests can relax and watch the day go by - fishing boats leaving early and arriving with the catch mid afternoon, the daily migration of orange winged parrots, cocricos, egrets and corn birds to and from their favourite roosts, and much more besides. With the beach an easy stroll of 4 or 5 minutes away there is ample opportunity to swim and snorkel amongst coral reefs fringing the beach.

The Tobago region
Tobago, the "Robinson Crusoe Isle" is in every sense a "classical" tropical island. The golden sandy beaches and turquoise waters with pristine coral reefs, the lush rainforest teeming with an abundance of stunning flora and fauna, all combine seamlessly with the friendly locals, reggae, calypso, steelpans and rum. This delightful tropical pot pourri provides the very best of what the Caribbean has to offer all on one unforgettable jewel of an island.
The spectacular fishing village of Parlatuvier is just a 30 km drive from Crown Point Airport, up along the picturesque North Coast road. This working village has a perfect crescent shaped beach curving away towards pretty pastel beach houses, a small elementary school, a few tiny shops, a rum parlour and breathtaking views. Set against a backdrop of stunning tropical rain forest Parlatuvier is Caribbean village life at its simplest.
On either side of Parlatuvier are the villages of Castara, Englishman’s Bay and Bloody Bay, each with their own beautiful beaches and a variety of restaurants and small shops. Fresh fish can be bought most days from the jetty in Parlatuvier and at the fishermen’s cooperative in Castara. Bird watching, rain forest walks, boat trips, fishing trips, snorkeling and scuba diving are just a few of the activities that can be found within the village or just a short drive away. In Parlatuvier, a unique and memorable tropical island experience is awaiting you.

We were very sorry to hear the BBQ was out of service during your stay - a replacement has since been installed. We hope you took up our housekeeper's offer of a complimentary meal - to compensate in a very small way for some of the inconvenience.
It is difficult to keep track of the numerous small bars and restaurants on the island that open and close again with no warning. However, there are always one or two restaurants open each evening in Castara - a small resort just 5 miles (15 mins)from Parlatuvier. Generally, more food outlets open at lunchtimes and it is always better to book for evening meals in advance.
