Moonlight Mountain is built along traditional lines, it is what is called in the Caribbean a gingerbread house - a reference to the decorative fretwork which adorns the outside. Set in what used to be agricultural land and designed to catch the sea breezes, it has its own fruit trees, a nature trail through rainforest and a bamboo grove. A couple of steps from the kitchen door and ,depending on the season,you can pick your own fresh fruit for breakfast.Beyond the garden a gently sloping path leads you to a nature trail that winds through rainforest and a grove of graceful bamboo.

In amongst the hills and gullies of rural Tobago and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, the detached position makes it a haven for the local bird life. Over forty species can be seen around the house and grounds. Overlooking the rainforest is a wooden deck, a perfect spot for viewing the wildlife or just relaxing under the stars.

The Tobago region

The property is situated at the end of the central ridge, in the south of the island and overlooking the port of Scarborough, the capital of Tobago.

The island is reputed for its white sand beaches, coral reefs teeming with marine life, lush vegetation and rainforests rich in flora and fauna with pure fresh running waterfalls.

Tobago has a fascinating geography. In the west are the flat coral lowlands with pasturelands, coconut groves and palm-fringed beaches. In the centre runs the Central Ridge, a line of hills which is the back bone of the island and which represents the final outcrop of the vast line of volcanic mountains that are the Andes.

The hills continue westward, where the island is a precipitous series of hills and gullies covered with dense tropical rainforest with rivers and streams and lovely waterfalls leading down to inland pools, small coves and beaches. In the hills around the bays are picturesque fishing villages, each with their own unique character


There are various boat trips we can book for you in advance - for exploring this end of the island, snorkelling with BBQ and a dip in Nylon Pool. the lagoon in the middle of the sea, or, for the more adventurous snorkeller, to Cotton Bay, only reachable by boat, Or, for the intrepid sailor, a day in a pirogue (local fishing boat) from Castara to Pirates Bay, catching your lunch along the way and then BBQ on the beach. We recommend a Castara based family run company,Ali Baba Tours, for this magical day out. For those who love to sail, Island Girl Tours will wing you to a quiet anchorage for a gourmet lunch on board. Other watersports , wind & kite surfing are available at Pigeon Point and there are several scuba diving companies based around the island.

For boat enthusiasts, there are various boat/fishing contests throughout the year and a regatta in February, now extended to include all wind sports such as surf/ kite flying.The famous power boat race between Trinidad and Tobago, the Great Race, is held over August Bank Holiday

For a hike with a difference, we recommend Mark Puddy. He'll take you to out of the way waterfalls for a 'river lime' with a delicious home made picnic and plenty of anecdotal quips along the way.

Swimming with Horses offers a unique experience- swim bareback across Buccoo Baybeach or inland ride, we have the nformation at hand in our house book as with recommended restaurants.

We also have a lovely Art Gallery in Tobago, full of desirable works. They have prints for sale too. There is a local zoo where the bush animals are kept in twos in lovely surroundings and there is a museum nearby at Fort George.

Apart from the birds in MM garden, there are several bird sanctuaries about fifteen minutes away at Plymouth and Stonehaven ..

In April, there is The Jazz Experience held in the magical environ of Pigeon Point Park with days on the beach and evenings under palm trees.

At Easter time. there are the hilarious goat and crab races at Buccoo, now held on a new , specially created track with excellent spectator facilities.

Throughout July, villages in the area host entertainment - enactments of historical events , often in plantation days with colourful portrayals -dramas, singing dancing in the costumes of the times. Three villages locally are involved in this festival - Whim, Mount Grace and Les Coteaux- each offering a different aspect of the past.
