Canaan villa description

Elysian is a spacious, elegant and luxurious 3 bedroom villa in the Samaan Grove gated development, which has 24 hour access security. The villa is centrally located, with the airport and most popular beaches all being less than 10 minutes drive away. On entering the villa, you will immediately appreciate the bright, open and airy design as well as the exceptionally high quality and style of the construction, finishes, furniture and fittings. The Great Room opens to the porch and private pool as well as a separate side Terrace. The villa provides all expected modern conveniences and more – full air-conditioning including the Great Room, high end kitchen with stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, granite counter tops and island bar, and full laundry facilities. All expected entertainment amenities are provided - satellite TV, DVD and CD/Radio player. WiFi internet access is provided. Elysian's guests have free land side access to No Man's Land beach.

Elysian Villa: The villa is very spacious with over 2100 square feet (186 Sq M) of living space. The 3 bedrooms have 1 King, 2 Queen, and 1 Queen beds respectively. A convertible queen-sized sofabed in the living area provides overflow capacity for 2 additional guests. The villa can comfortably sleep 10. The quality of the furniture is exceptional - leather living room sofa set and 46' flat screen TV with DirecTV HD service in the Great Room. All the furniture was imported from Miami. Panasonic Split air conditioners were selected for their exceptionally quiet performance. The Great Room is also air conditioned, with 2 split 24000 BTU units. Two 12 foot doorways in the Great Room open out to the porch as well as a side terrace, allowing for a fantastic open indoor-outdoor feeling as well as opening up the villa for fresh cooling breezes to flow through. The vast expanses of glass enhance the light and airy feeling. The 32' pool has 3 depths - a shallow area that allows you to sit or lie with your chair or lounger in the water which allows you to stay cool while you tan and relax, a mid depth area ideal for the kids, and even the deep end is only 4 1/2' suitable for non-swimming adults.

Every expected amenity is provided and more. Guests have told us that many times, they don't even want to leave the villa to go to the beach - the villa is stocked with books, DVDs, even board games so if you just want to relax and chill out in total luxury you can do so.

Samaan Grove Development: The Samaan Grove Development is a gated development in Tobago, with 24 hour security. As Elysian Villa's guests, you can rest assured that you will enjoy quiet, peaceful, private and secure surroundings in which to enjoy your holiday. The development is ideally located, with the most popular beaches such as Store Bay & Pigeon Point to the south-west, and Grange Bay, Mt Irvine Bay & Stonehaven Bay to the north-east are all within 4-8 km and less than 10 minutes drive away. It is located off Milford Road and is close to the Crown Point area, where there is a wide range of eating choices - from ultra casual and takeout, to fine dining.

Travel Directions from the airport: From the ANR Robinson International Airport, proceed east approx 3 Km along Milford Road. Turn left onto Golden Grove Road and drive approx 1 Km until you arrive at the Samaan Grove entrance and guard booth. After gaining admittance from the security guard, drive into the development. Elysian Villa will be on the left shortly after you pass the side road. Drive time from the airport is approximately 7-9 minutes.

From the Port at Scarborough head west along Claude Noel Hwy towards Crown Point, turn right onto Golden Grove Road after passing Shirvan Road. Drive time from the port approximately 12-15 minutes depending on traffic conditions in Scarborough.

No Man's Land - a big Bonus!: For many visitors and even residents of Trinidad & Tobago, 'No Man's Land' has been a well-kept secret. This slender spit of beach was usually accessed by boat, and as a result is well known mainly to the tour boat operators, who often take their clients there for beach-side barbeques. Residents and guests of villas in the Samaan Grove Development have exclusive land-side access to this beach, since the access road can be entered only from within the development. Visitors will enjoy the peacefulness and seclusion of the idyllic and scenic location, almost completely surrounded by the waters of Buccoo Lagoon and the Buccoo Reef. The beach is ideal for children and non-swimmers, as the water is always clear and calm due to the protective reefs offshore.

                      Elysian Villa is located in the gated development of Samaan Grove. Samaan Grove is centrally located off Golden Grove Road in Canaan in the heart of South West Tobago, within 7-10 minutes drive of the popular beaches like Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Mt Irvine Bay and No Man's Land. Close by is a wide range of eating places ranging from local takeout and fast food to fine dining.

                      Leisure activities available nearby range from bicycle rentals, horseback riding, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, reef tours, deep sea and on-shore fishing, and sailing. Less than 8 minutes drive away, golfers have a choice of the Mt Irvine Golf Course or the PGA rated Tobago Plantations Golf Course.

                      Popular supermarkets Pennysavers and RT Morshead are just a few minutes drive away, while Canaan Food Basket is just around the corner on Milford Road, making it ideal for a quick run to stock up on fruit, vegetables and beverages.

                      A significant bonus for guests is exclusive land side access to the well-known No Man's Land beach, which is very popular with locals in the know and tour operators. Secluded and dramatically positioned at the end of a narrow spit of land and flanked by the Buccoo Lagoon, the Caribbean sea and the Buccoo Reef, the beach is sheltered by the Buccoo Reef offshore. The water is usually crystal clear and glass calm, making the beach ideal for non swimmers and young children. There is also plentiful natural shade, making it a perfect place to spend hours lazing by the calm clear water in privacy.

                      We highly recommend the following for eating experiences: La Cantina for genuine Italian style thin crust pizza from a wood burning oven - located in the Royal Bank plaza in Crown Point, Skewers for Arabic style fast food in Crown Point, Chefs & BBQ for local foods selected cafeteria style for take home eating in Crown Point, Shore Things for casual eating in a lovely setting by the sea in Lambeau on the old Milford Road, Fish Pot Restaurant for fresh seafood in Pleasant Prospect close to the Grafton Beach/Stonehaven Bay areas, La Tartaruga for great Italian food and a top class wine selection located in Buccoo, Seahorse Inn for international dishes on Old Grafton Road overlooking Grafton Beach. There's a Doubles vendor who comes out most afternoons and sets up in the Stumpy's car park on Milford Road. For coconut bake and saltfish or bake and smoked herring for breakfast on a morning, you can't go wrong by buying from Golden Girls Bakery at the corner of Golden Grove Road and Milford Road - literally a minute's drive from Samaan Grove.
