About the Property
Villa, 2 Bedrooms,2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)
Moments is not your typical vacation resort. Nestled in the hills of Scarborough, Tobago, situated northeast of its twin island Trinidad, this beautifully appointed villa offers you a home away from home on this small lush Caribbean island replete with rainforests, waterfalls and pristine beaches. Tobago is not your usual touristy island. Tourism does not feel imposed on this country; the island is beautifully defined by its unique local life.
Come here to relax, replenish or rejuvenate. Come with your spouse or partner to rekindle a romance. Come to start, finish or edit your book. (contact us ref. writers packages). Moments features two elegant bedroom suites, each with a private master bath and gorgeous ocean views. You will find a fully appointed kitchen with dining sitting areas that open to a semi-circular porch for sitting, reading or just gazing at the vast ocean view. For guests seeking to reserve both bedrooms the rate is $150 per night. Please contact the owner directly for other longer term rates.
Two steps down and you are in the Jacuzzi for a soothing water massage under the sun or the moon or in the pool for an invigorating or relaxing swim. Moments surrounds you in tranquility and natural beauty day and night. Moments is close to many open stretches of beach, however, it is recommended that you plan to rent a car or hire a driver for the length of your stay or for day trips. 'Tranquility'-
Tobago is luxuriantly forested with an abundant water supply and mountainous terrain marked by waterfalls and mountain pools along the courses of its many small rivers. Protecting Tobago's coastline is mile after mile of coral reef harbouring a wide variety of marine life which feeds on the fertile convergence of two seas. The mean annual temperature is 32 degrees C (89 degrees F) with an average rainfall of 200 cm (40 inches). Dry season is from January to May and wet season from June to December. Significantly, Tobago is outside of the hurricane belt.

Why the Owner Chose Scarborough, Trinidad and Tobago:
We chose to build in this location because of the weather and being outside of hurricane belt. The property is on a hillside overlooking the Atlantic ocean with a magnificent view up the island and a wide angle view of the rainforest. high on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a view of the northern coast of Trinidad. The trade winds provide natural and constant breezes and the waters surrounding the island as wonderfully clean and refreshing.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It's short walk to beaches, a 5-minute drive to town. It is quiet, private and secure. You can choose to be in the mix of traffic and activity by going 1 mile into town or remain at home, lounging on the decks, swimming in the pool or luxuriating in the Jacuzzi. Owner/representative on property.
