Englishman's Bay apartment description

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.

CUSTOMER REVIEW: Janine Turner from Norwich, UK visited in December 2007
My daughter and I stayed at Tamarind house for Christmas and new year and we had the most relaxing and interesting holiday ever.
The house and location are very beautiful. The house is spacious and furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The views of the palm tree lined sandy bay and the rain forest art quite wonderful. The village is pretty and quaint and the people friendly and helpful. We hired a jeep for the whole two weeks so that we could explore the wonderful and exotic countryside, idyllic bays and waterfalls. The evenings were spent chilling out in the pool and cooking fish on the Bar B Q or sipping rum punches on the wonderful terrace gazing at the sun setting on the bay. Sharon, the housekeeper was friendly, helpful and kept everything looking lovely. I can highly recommend Tamarind house as the perfect place to have a truely chilled out holiday in an exotic location.
