Villa in Tobago Plantations Beach and Golf Resort, Lowlands, Tobago, Caribbean - Within Exclusive Gated Development, 5 Mins Walk To Quiet Mile Long Beach
About Nigel Taylor
The owners Nigel and Gay Taylor live in Beckenham in Kent, England.
Nigel Taylor purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Nigel Taylor chose Lowlands
Having holidayed in Barbados for a number of years, and thoroughly enjoyed it, in 2004 we decided to try Tobago. We immediately fell in love with the island and before our two week holiday was over had put down our deposit on Villa Cluster 30a. Each year since we have holidayed in Tobago three times a year. It is our heaven on earth. Nigel loves golf and plays the course regularly, Gay hates golf and loves lazing around the pool reading. We both love pottering around the island, eating and drinking al fresco either at the villa or at one of the numerous quality restaurants and bars. Tobago is unspoilt beauty, the locals are friendly and laid back. It is the antithesis to flash and busy. We hope you choose to go to Tobago and enjoy our villa, that also gives us great enjoyment.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Cluster 30a is within a secure gated community just ten minutes from the airport. It has its own pool (heated if necessary), sun deck and a beautiful garden full of tropical vegetation. It is 5 minutes stroll to an uncrowded mile long golden sandy beach. It is 5 minutes stroll to the 4 star Magdalena Grand Beach Resort with its beach bars, pools and restaurants.

Nothing missing to affect your stay.
Well done on the Owner. Very well maintained too.
Thank you Chris, glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, please do stay again.
The property and the location is indeed fantastic. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one would need to feel like home. The heated pool is fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed this feature. The only reason I’m giving this property 4 starts is because we had some difficulty locating the premises since there was a mix-up between building numbering of the clusters and the condos and there were some issues with the WiFi; internet speed, connectivity issues.
Thank you for your comments. I have asked for clarification of the check-in and internet issues. Unfortunately I haven't received so I can't address them specifically.
However to clarify our address is the first line on the guidance notes issued to all guests. The key and directions to our property are held by the security gate. If guests hire a car through our preferred supplier he will lead you to our property. So there shouldn't be any check-in issues indeed there haven't been previously.
The internet is fast and very reliable. As is possible anywhere in the world there may be some down-time but it is few and far between in our experience so your timing may just have been unlucky. I am at our property in Tobago 9 weeks a year and operate my UK accountancy practice from there. This needs good fast internet which is what we get ninety nine per cent of the time.
Firstly, I would like to thank Nigel for making this property available for our family.
I can honestly say that I would recommend this property for anyone who wants to vacation in Tobago.
My family enjoyed this property so much that they have already started planning another trip.
Ok, so the place is as advertised, no hidden issues. The place is clean, secure, and very very comfortable. The pool is heated which was a treat being able to spend long hours at night just relaxing in it.
There are all amenities available to ensure a hassle free vacation.
All you need to do is pack your clothes and toiletries. You will definitely need a vehicle.
There is a beautiful collection of novels, which we wished we had more time for.
The pool is cleaned regularly as well as visits from the housekeeper.
The surrounding grounds are well maintained. Renting a bicycle may be a great idea for some.
You can enjoy your stay in Tobago and engage in the many outdoor activities that are available and return home to a comfortable private home to rejuvenate.
Looking forward to the next trip!!!
Anisa, many thanks for your kind words. We are delighted you and your family had such a good time. We of course look forward to your next visit!
Best Villa Experience
It was a very relaxing and the owner made things easier locating a car for us to move around
Thank you Antonio. Glad you enjoyed it.
Home away from home
Comfortable, clean and everything you would want in a rental property that makes you feel like you’re at home.
There clearly was love and thought put into this as a vacation rental to ensure that your guests have a relaxing time with no need to leave the Plantation compound if they didn’t want to.
Would definitely highly recommend this property and whenever I return to Tobago, this will be the first place I would look to stay at.
Thank you Gina. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay again and look forward to your next visit.
Great location on a beautiful island.
Property is well presented in an ideal peaceful location. The villa is extremely well maintained, including the private pool and is well equipped for self-catering. A car is required and the owners are more than happy to help organise car hire. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this proprty without hesitation.
Thank you Harriet you are always welcome.
Special interest holidays:
Tobago is a very popular diving location. The island has some of the best diving sites in the Caribbean. There are 3 wrecks located around its shores and the waters are home to many spcies of tropical fish, rays and turtles.
The Tobago Forest Reserve claims to be the oldest protected forest in the western world.
This forested area has great biodiversity including many species of birds (including the dancing blue-backed manakin), mammals, frogs, (nonpoisonous) snakes, butterflies and other invertebrates. It is one of the most approachable areas of rainforest, since it is relatively small and there are government-appointed guides who provide an authoritative guiding service through the forest at a reasonable cost. The guides are knowledgeable about the plants and the animals, and can call down rare and exotic birds from the canopy by imitating their calls.
Tobago also has nesting beaches for the leatherback turtle, which come to shore between April and July.
Tobago Plantations is blessed with a mile long un-crowded golden sandy beach which is a short 5 minute stroll in flip flops and swim wear from the villa.
Tobago of course has many other beaches to explore and enjoy. Pigeon Point with snorkelling and dive facilities is a short 15 minutes drive away and further away but worth a visit is Englishman's Bay a location of exceptional natural beauty.
Tobago Plantations is just a 10 minute drive from Tobago's Crown Point airport. So after collecting your bags at arrivals you will very soon be 'home' and enjoying the villa's facilities.
You will need a car and this can be arranged for you. Typically the cost is around £25 per day. Petrol is very cheap in Tobago. You can pick up the car at arrivals or it will be delivered to the villa at your convenience.
The villa is a short 5 minutes walk to the 4 star 200 room Magdalena Grand Beach Hotel, Tobago's premier hotel. The Magdalena has a number of beach bars, swimming pools and restaurants and has a stunning vista of the Atlantic.
Scarborough, Tobago's capital is a 15 minutes drive north.
Tobago is just 26 miles long and 6 miles wide. Everywhere is therefore within an hour's drive. Explore and enjoy.
There are a number of supermarkets within 10 minutes drive, a farm which sells good quality meat is also a 10 minutes drive. Fishermen sell their fresh catch from roadside market stores nearby.
There is a shopping mall with a wide range of stores and a cinema complex 5 minutes away.
There are numerous good quality restaurants and bars within a 15 minute radius.
