Trevor was such an accommodating and hospitable host. I would have been stranded on the property if it weren't for his generosity! Trevor offered to drive me to Pirate's Bay one day where I saw some of the most beautiful waters I've ever seen. His houses are unique and well-designed. The treehouse had all of the proper amenities of a regular house. A very warm and considerate host - I would highly recommend the experience.
First and foremost, we loved staying here. I highly recommend it. We were suppose to stay in Wings, but ended up staying in Rainbow.
We did walk through Wings, and it seemed very nice, but we didn't stay there. It had a nice view of the rainforest. The bathroom floor was riverstone on dirt. Unexpected but lovely looking.
The view was spectacular and pool was fantastic! The furnishings, while nothing spectacular on their own, fit the place wonderfully. And despite not using it to its fullest, having a full kitchen was excellent.
I would move in and never leave if possible.
Words of warning:
The place is open to smokers, or at least has been. There was an ashtray, and the tv stand and several of the books smelled strongly of smoke. I say this as a person who is greatly bothered by smoke. It gives me really bad headaches. That being said, the place is airy and spacious. I stayed away from the books and tv stand and I felt fine.
You'll need a vehicle with 4 wheel drive. The road is steep, rocky and narrow.
Mosquitoes are awful at night.
Do yourself a favor and do all your grocery shopping in Scarborough or Crown Point. There are very limited options in the area.
We had originally booked the smaller cabin, Wings, which looked very nice, but were told that another one was available (Xanadu) and upgraded with a discount. We would have been fine in either place, but Xanadu was simply amazing. Trevor's cabin, situated on a hill in the forest, provided us with down-to-earth, simple luxury with everything we needed and more for the six nights we were there. The view over the lush tropical hills surrounding the area, as well as Parlatuvier Bay and the ocean below was incredible. Beautiful wild birds (including green parrots) and geckos (keeping the mosquitos away!) are your closest neighbors, there's a secluded waterfall in the forest right below, and the closest village (by the beach, with small shops and simple selections of groceries) is about a 10-15 min walk away.
The peace, quiet, and beautiful surroundings were exactly what we needed. We were content spending most of our time in the immediate vicinity of the property and cooking in for our meals, but if you want to explore the island more you might want to rent a car – which will also let you get to larger supermarkets/restaurants more easily).
Trevor was a great and friendly host, always ready to respond to any questions or queries. We'd not hesitate a second in recommending this to others or coming back ourselves.
Wow -- what a view! Nestled up in the Tobagonian rainforest, Trevor and family have made a little paradise for themselves, with a sweeping view of the rainforest and sea. The cabin itself was clean, quiet, and "rustic-chic." While the birds were chirping early and the mosquitoes were certainly biting, the views and easy access to a nearby waterfall more than made up for it.
Trevor had great communication, ensuring that we found the cabin easily with no guesswork involved.
Beautiful place, fully agree with all previous visitors who have added comments here. Trevor is a great host, there if you need him. Easy to spend hours on that balcony overlooking the rainforest and watching the birds and changing light. It's a great feeling to wake up to nature, but use earplugs if you prefer a lie in! Parlatuvier Bay is a few minutes drive and we had the beautiful beach to ourselves. Renting a small jeep is a good idea. We had already paid a deposit on one but Trevor can recommend a company that will pick you up and bring you to the place. Could be worth doing to get used to navigating Tobago's twisty roads before you drive them yourself.
Trevor made us feel very welcome. He readily answered our questions about local things to see and even shared a taste of his delicious home cooking one evening. We found the "Wings" accommodation to be delightful. Great morning birdwatching. Even though the kitchen is small it was adequate to prepare meals and we enjoyed fresh local fish several evenings. The bed is very comfortable. The shower has a great little on demand heater and works well. The photos are very representative of what you get - the only exception is that I think it is deceptive to so majorly feature the pool when I don't think guests even have access to the pool - at least we didn't at Wings. I would highly recommended staying here if you are looking for a unique experience on the edge of the rainforest with access to a very private waterfall. Thank you Trevor for helping make our vacation very special.
We had a wonderful stay, The position, view, and surroundings are just Magnificent. Trevor is a perfect host. He is always here when needed and discrete when he is not needed. He gave us some very good tips. The location could appear remote for some people but this is what we were looking for.
Juste a note to our French friends :
L'endroit est génial ! C'est un petit paradis sans touriste! Rare de nos jours ! Allez-y!
Thank you Trevor .

My life motto now is Ease Back.
Take time to live life.
