Bacolet villa description

Casa DelaMar – locally translates to ‘House by the Sea’. Situated in Bacolet’s lush and protected ‘Coconut Grove'.

‘Casa’ as we call it, is indeed a very special place, it is the perfect haven for peace and tranquillity, where you can escape – relax and unwind. It holds the right amount of privacy and is ideal for large families, small groups, couples or just one solitary soul who would like to experience barefoot luxury.

The 4 bedroom villa can accommodate up to 8 guests (NB.we can accommodate an extra two guests at US$30/person/night on pull out beds making a maximum of 10 guests) The open plan kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and 12ft cooking island for any of you budding Chefs out there. The villa also has two internal bathrooms that are well stocked. The living room has a TV, DVD, stereo and luxurious soft white leather sofa that begs to be lounged on, with an additional dining space that will seat 8.

However if it’s alfresco dining you prefer the large 30'X10' balcony is the perfect place for you to watch the sun go down with a cocktail in hand whilst enjoying the breathtaking views of Minister’s Bay. The warm gentle trade winds will relax your mind, body and soul – to ensure you get a restful nights sleep.

The alluring turquoise pool was designed to splash in the shallow end, lounge – somewhere in the middle or just generally keeping fit and swimming lengths, as the deep end is 6ft - the entire pool measures 25’x16’. There is also a washroom and an outside shower, with a fully working utility and laundry area.

The secret garden is perfect for an afternoon stroll or catching up with some reading under the many fruit trees such as mangoes, lemons, oranges and if preparing a special meal I am sure Malcolm will let you borrow fare from his famous herb garden!

And now the adventure begins - where our back garden, becomes your paradise. 50 yards through the coconut grove and over our little wooden 'London Bridge', that spans the Bacolet riverlet is the spectacular and private Minister’s Bay beach. This beach has many different facets and is perfect for water sports, fishing, lounging or just enjoying the warm Atlantic Sea.

Some areas of the Bacolet River are shallow enough to walk through and perfect for the explorer. And at the furthest end of the beach is your very own warm water rock pool. Minister’s Bay is also known for turtle watching during March to September – an exciting and emotional experience – simply magical!

The other very special aspect of this beach is it was chosen for the filming of the Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson, the 1960 American Technicolor feature film starring John Mills, Dorothy McGuire, and Sessue Hayakawa in a tale of a shipwrecked family building an island home. The screenplay by Lowell S. Hawley was loosely based upon the 1812 novel Der Schweizerische Robinson (literally, The Swiss Robinson) by Johann David Wyss. The film was directed by Ken Annakin, shot in Tobago. It was the second feature film version of the story (the first film version was released by RKO in 1940) and was a commercial success.

Upon arrival Natasha & Malcolm, your hosts, will greet you at the airport and guide you to the supermarket to pick up all those essentials. You will be given a brief tour of ‘Casa’ and the grounds and we will provide you with an information pack. We are here to help – as much or as little as you require.NB. At all times our villa Manager or ourselves will be discreetly staying on site in the basement apartment to attend to your every need- you total privacy will be maintained at all times.

Tobago is a little piece of paradise on earth! Truly unique in many ways - where you can enjoy a moonlit walk on the extremely romantic Englishman’s Bay beach, snorkel at Bucco Reef, dive at the amazing Brothers and Sisters rock, enjoy the natural beauty of the Nylon Pool, play a round of golf at the Mount Irvine golf course, explore the enchanting fishing village of Parlatuvier and party all night in Castara!. Or just take a lazy drive through the protected rainforest and visit the many wonderful waterfalls along the way. The list is endless, there is always something do if you wish – if not, simply enjoy your home from home at Casa DelaMar!

Note: A 20% deposit is required at time of booking and the balance is due on arrival . We offer secured and encrypted payments via Paypal, UK and Trinidad & Tobago bank transfer and money transfer.


The 20% is a holding deposit, which you will receive when you depart from the villa. On arrival you will need to pay the full amount quoted for your stay and once the villa has been left in the state you have found it, you will receive your full deposit refund.

We are pleased to inform you that our rates are “Per group – per night” and not charged “Per person – per night” – the perfect recession buster, especially when travelling with a group!
