About Patricia Campbell

I am a Trinidadian who grew up in San Fernando. I left to attend the University of Florida and then attended Johnson and Wales University where I earned degrees in Pastry Arts and in Food Service Management. I was a pastry chef in Florida and in Tennessee and returned to Trinidad to live after having lived in the United States for 14 years.

Patricia Campbell purchased this villa in 2012

Why Patricia Campbell chose Canaan

After vacationing in Samaan Grove last year I decided to purchase a villa there because of the peace and quiet and the easy accessibility to beaches. I try to make it to Tobago every chance I get. It is a fantastic place to get away from the day to day hustle and bustle of Trinidad. My children also love to go to Tobago as they enjoy snorkeling and the beaches. Villa Colibri was built in 2011 and as soon as I walked in to view it I knew I could live there. I bought it with the intention of maybe moving there once I retire and knew that the house would be comfortable.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Colibri is close to conveniences such as pharmacies and grocery stores but is in a neighborhood that is safe, guard-gated and quiet. The neighborhood backs up on a preserve and native birds such as the bananaquit and hummingbirds can be seen flitting around the flowers in the garden. The national bird, the cocrico, lives in the preserve and can be heard in the early mornings and seen as they hop from tree to tree. Samaan Grove is the only neighborhood with land-side access to No Man's Land. The drive to No Man's Land is through the preserve and is an adventure. It is a journey through Mangrove and field during which you can see hundreds of fiddler crabs and a myriad birds. If you are lucky you might see other wildlife. it is a dirt track so a 4x4 vehicle is advisable.

A marvelous vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable with everything you will need. It was basically a "home away from home" It comes equipped with everything even games, videos and cards. It was spacious and created an open atmosphere in the living, dining and pool areas with adequate comfort and privacy for the three bedrooms. Close proximity to shopping and the Crown Point and Pigeon Point areas was a bonus. Because it is a gated community you feel very safe and secure.

Amazing stay at Villa Colibri

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was truly fantastic. I did notice that some painting is required where the air condition units were. It was wonderful having a coffee percolator available for guests that drink coffee.

Would have been nice not to have to pay to go into No Man's Land. Garbage does need to be removed from No Man's Land to keep it looking pristine.

Would absolutely stay here for future visits to Tobago.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, Thank you for your wonderful review. We realize that we do have a little touching up to do as far as the pain is concerned. It is something that we have made a priority. As a fellow coffee drinker I do like to ensure that our guests have access to a percolator as I know serious coffee drinkers need their morning coffee :) We do try to ensure that our guests have all the conveniences of home. As far as No Man's Land goes, I agree that it would be nice to not have to pay. Unfortunately the fee charged is imposed by Samaan Grove Management and is not controlled by home owners. The fee goes to helping to maintain the access road to No Man's Land as it does take a lot of work to keep the brush and tree branches cut back and the track graded. I also agree with you that the garbage should be removed and the management does take care of some of it. Please keep in mind though, that No Man's Land, like all beaches in Trinidad and Tobago, is a public beach, and the management is not really responsible for keeping it pristine. It is my hope that one day, all the people of our country will be responsible citizens and take their trash with them when they leave, leaving nothing behind but footprints and taking with them wonderful memories of their time at the beautiful beach.

Colibri is a newly-built 3 BR villa in the upscale, 24 hour guard-gated neighborhood of Samaan Grove. Guests can relax in a private, secure, peaceful environment while still being close to the conveniences of everyday life. It is centrally located approximately 10 minutes from the airport and some of the most popular beaches. Pennysavers, one of the largest grocery stores in the area is only 4 minutes away making it convenient to stock up on supplies for your stay. The Mount Irvine golf course is a only a short drive away. Nearby Pigeon Point Beach is very popular for relaxing in one of their on beach shelters or for windsurfing, kite-surfing and jet skiing. There is even a small playground at the beach for the little ones. An added significant benefit is land-side access to No Man's Land, a small secluded strip of beach protected on one side by Buccoo Reef, making it fairly safe for non-swimmers. (Access to No Man's Land from land side now costs $200TT per vehicle. This is a charge imposed by the community and is not controlled by us). Please note that Google maps is showing an inaccurate map. The house is actually close to the Bon Accord Lagoon.
