Nice house and location but extreme night time noise by local bar
The house is a nice house - great central location (close to nice beaches, activities and restaurants). The view is amazing from the pool area. The pool is fun. Couch is very comfortable. And the house itself is fine - some wear and tear (could use some upkeep in certain areas), but generally fine.
The owner was very nice, even left a bottle of wine in the fridge for us.
It would have been a great stay, but for the fact that there is a bar down the hill (right below the house) called Moon Over Water. This bar is an open air bar that is open almost every night in the week. The music is so loud that the walls of the master bedroom were shaking at night. It was literally like being right in the middle of the bar. I believe the sound carries from the bottom of the hill to the top, where the house is.
I could not sleep for nights in a row, before I finally gave up trying to use multiple sound machines and earplugs and moved to one of the other bedrooms. The other bedrooms are on the other side of the house, so you can't really hear the music as well. A sound machine works just fine to block out low level sound in the bedroom right above the pool with the balcony, and you may not need a sound machine at all in the other 2 bedrooms.
And that doesn't also include some locals who clearly like to party as they would use subwoofer stereo systems inside and outside their houses and businesses in the neighborhood. I heard music blasting so loud, again the walls in the master bedroom shook from the bass. I had to call the local police who were nice enough to help shut some of this down at 2 or 3am - unbelievably, on Christmas Eve as well as other days of the week. It wasn't just the week-ends, maybe because folks were off during the holiday season.
And the fun didn't stop at night. Some mornings, the music would end around 3 or 4am from the bar, only to start up again at 5:30 or 6am from a local house at the bottom of the hill. Not sure who wants to party with loud music that early, but there you have it.
I was very surprised that I did not see reviews for the house that included this issue, because it defined our vacation. I ended up getting sick from lack of sleep before I moved bedrooms. So if you are looking for a fun bar that you can walk down to and party, this is a great place as the house has great views and is a nice play to stay.
We are so sorry you had to experience the loud music from the bar below!! I hope you were able to enjoy the other lovely things to experience in Tobago!!
Mind blowing villa, lack nothing..
Fantastic Get Away
This is a well put together holiday home.
All our needs were catered for and the convenience of nearby stores meant that any items we needed were easily accessed.
The heated pool is just perfect ( maybe you can encourage the neighbour on the hill to cut down that tall tree which partially hides the ocean view)
Highly recommend !
Thanks Marlon for your input....we do get the land owners in front to trim the trees and cut the bush...but the rainy season can be brutal with growth! Hope you visit us again, maybe when they have been newly cut!
This is the second time my family has visited the property and we weren’t let down. They view was incredible as well as the pool and jacuzzi. I hope to stay again.
Thanks Calissa...we would love to have you come again!
Wonderful ocean-view villa in a peaceful neighbourhood
Located just 15 minutes from Crown Point, the property is set on a small hill with an amazing view of Stonehaven beach and the rest of the ocean. The beach was just a 2 minute drive away.
The house was well equipped with all the cooking and cleaning items needed for a comfortable stay. Two of the four bedrooms also had a lovely ocean view.
Just down the hill (a 5 minute walk) is a convenience store which offers a really good selection of items if you need something quickly. There is also a local bar which is pretty pumping on the weekend.
The only real complaint was how warm the common area could get during the day. However it did not dampen our mood as we spent most of the time in the pool.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay within the Black Rock area.
Quite a lovely villa, extremely well-equipped kitchen and bedrooms/bathrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially the beautiful views and hot tub/pool. Furniture in the living and dining room could be updated for a more comfortable and modern ambiance. These common spaces could also be airconditioned for more comfort.
La Jolie is located on the bluff above one of the nicest beaches in Tobago, Stonehaven Bay. La Jolie is only five minutes from Mt. Irvine professional golfing center and ten minutes from Plantation Golf and Country Club.
Tobago's amazing beaches are only two minutes away with convenient access to PADI dive centers, we use Undersea Tobago out of Coco Beach Hotel ask for Derek Chung, sailing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and other water sports. Shops from supermarkets to kiosks, are all nearby including fresh fish every afternoon; further away are the Scarborough market, delicatessen and meat straight from the farm!
Golf: Tobago has two beautiful golf courses, Tobago Plantations Golf and Country Club and the Tobago Mount Irvine Golf Course. The Mount Irvine Bay Golf Course is an 18 Hole Course with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, carved out amongst an old coconut plantation. Established in 1968, the Course is set within gently rolling countryside along the coast, with a view of the sea from every hole and an abundance of massive coconut palm trees. Like no other course in the world, the 18 hole PGA Championship course at Tobago Plantations has been designed to work with it’s stunning Caribbean backdrop. This British designed course takes you around mangroves and mature palm trees, to coastline holes offering views of Tobago’s capital in one direction and the Atlantic Ocean in the other. Wetlands and lakes are being nurtured around the course to encourage wildlife to add to the unique golfing experience at Plantations.
