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. The wall and doors separating the Great Room and the Porch is all glass, providing exceptional visibility from the interior to the fun activities on the porch and the pool and pool deck. 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 with large 51” HD flat screen TV, and DVD. WiFi internet access is provided.

The glass wall and doors enhance the light and airy feeling.

The 28' pool has 3 sections - 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 looking for a place to relax are spoiled for choices: for the pool and pool deck, there are 8 deck chairs and 2 loungers; the covered patio has an 8-seater weatherproof wicker patio set with overstuffed cushions to give you a comfortable place to relax when the sun gets too hot, and 4 bar stools at the kitchen island bar give you a place to enjoy your after-beach or after-pool drinks. For extra convenience, there is even a bar on the porch for those who don’t want to make the trek inside for their drinks.

Samaan Grove Development: The Samaan Grove Development is a gated development in Tobago, with 24 hour security. As 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.

A fully glassed wall by the porch create a very bright and airy feeling in the great room.

The villa was just as seen in the photos or maybe even better. Everything you could possibly need was provided and the staff was most courteous. Will surely revisit without a doubt.

Thought it was too good to be true

  • 4 of 5

All the years I have been going to Tobago, this is a first. The house really lived up to the pictures, location is very easy to find. Minor details can be worked out e.g. soap stained wares drainer, spiders/cobweb by the bathroom window, someone left their bath suit on the laundry room shelf, was still there when we arrived. Otherwise everything else was awesome & very convenient. Theresa/ Tricia you both were amazing, booking was a breeze. Will definitely stay again.

was in tobago for 2 nights and stayed in this villa. Simply amazing. Comfortable, clean. Easily accessible by vehicle only a short distance to the airport and the town but yet secluded and quiet. Private access to beach a bonus. Planning on returning next year for sure but for a longer duration.

This villa had me lost for words. The furniture and decor were of top quality and remarkably set up. The ambiance of the place is soo calming and peaceful. The gated community is quiet and I felt very safe. Service received was of top quality. I have never enjoyed a stay in tobago as much as I did for this weekend. The coatis very reasonable and worth it. I cannot wait to plan another vacation to stay at this villa again and hopefully for a longer period this time. The pictures are gorgeous and still doesn't do it justice. Blue Marlin is Perfect.

111 Samaan Grove, Golden Grove Road, Canaan, Tobago

Blue Marlin 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 7-9 minutes’ drive of the popular beaches like Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Mt Irvine Bay. Close by is a wide range of eating places ranging from local take out and fast food to fine dining.

Travel Directions: From the ANR 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. 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 15 minutes.

Leisure activities available nearby range from bicycle rentals, horseback riding, swimming, snorkelling, 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 Penny savers 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.

We highly recommend the following for eating experiences:In the Crown Point/Airport Area: La Cantina for genuine Italian style thin crust pizza from a wood burning oven - located in the Royal Bank Plaza, Skewers for Arabic style fast food, Chefs & BBQ for local foods selected cafeteria style, the Pasta Gallery for excellent pasta in a very casual setting at very economical prices just after the turn-off towards Pigeon Point from Milford Road. In Lambeau, Shore Things for casual eating in a lovely setting by the sea on the old Milford Road. In Pleasant Prospect Fish Pot Restaurant for fresh seafood close to the Grafton Beach/Stone haven Bay area. In Buccoo Village, La Tartaruga for great Italian food and a top class wine selection. In the Grafton Beach area, Seahorse Inn for international dishes on Old Grafton Road overlooking Grafton Beach.

For local street food, 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 or fried bake with salt fish or smoked herring for breakfast, 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. They also make an excellent thick local soup (vegetable or cow heel) most weekdays including Saturdays but be warned - they are often sold out by noon!
