Trevor made us feel very welcome upon our night arrival. He helped throughout our stay with pointers and info. Our little birdhouse was tranquil, tidy, & well-appointed. The forest starts waking up early as the birds and animals go about their business. If your experience is like ours you'll wake up with a smile on your face each day, and you won't want to leave when it's time. At night, if you don't go out, put some SoCa on your travel radio (bring one) and enjoy the lively "night life" of the forest. Some people unwind with pampering resorts, so if that's your bag, maybe book a couple nights somewhere like that as well. But I'd wager you'll feel just as relaxed staying here. The roomy, airy shower was a great break for me (I'm 6'2") from the shoebox city life. AREA: Castara is the best beach around, the coffee shop gets top billing & has wireless.
DRIVING: driving in the area is relatively easy, even for a Yank used to the left. As you cruise the island, don't mind the dogs sleeping on the hot pavement in the evening, and the occasional untethered cow, and even the impromptu cricket match in the street. This is all part of the experience, so just enjoy it.
If you see the Pizza & Ice Cream lady on the Parlatuvier road hill, do stop, her food is amazing & she's fully licensed and totally charming. Unless you want to risk broken axles and flat tires, avoid the north road to Charlottesville, mudslides and neglect have left it pretty trashed for the casual traveler. Instead I'd go via Roxborough and then up the east coast road.
Trevor's place is a unique travel experience. Perched at the edge of the Tobago rainforest, our cabin had an outdoor kitchen and porch which served as an observation deck for the myriad of parrots and other beautiful birds that live there. 5 minutes hike down a steep path brought us to a lovely waterfall and swimming hole. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our conversations with Trevor were warm and pleasant, as he took the time to explain the history of the property. It was clear that he loves the land and enjoys sharing that love with his guests. Would definitely return here again!
Trevor, our host was so welcoming and pleasant to meet. He happened to be in town when we arrived on the ferry from Trinidad, and graciously offered us a ride back to Wings. The living exceeded our expectations as far as truly being a rain forest experience. Our quarters were clean and perfect for some laid back island living. The beauty of the birds were overwhelming as was the water falls on the property. We had a great hike/climb up through the waterfalls and streams up to multiple other picturesque spots. We walked to an overlook of Parlatuvier Bay for dinner/drinks that Trevor suggested and explored the bay. He also helped us arrange a rental car for the remainder of our trip. If you want a true getaway that is simple yet fulfilling, this is the spot for you.
beautiful place in the jungle with spectacular views and ten minute walk through the forest to the waterfall. host made us feel very welcome and helped us arrange transport to and from the accommodation.
Most amazing spot, nature and host. Best place to spend your time in Tobago.
Trevor communicated the exact location of his place. He met us upon arrival at night and even provided us with water as we dint have time to pick some up at the market. The location is truly breathtaking. The pictures on AirBnB truly do not do it justice (It outdid our expectations). We were pleasantly surprised that the house not only has a rain forest view (with parrots flying in the morning) but also a view of the Caribbean ocean.
The neighborhood of Parlatuvier is about 45 minutes from the airport TAB and 30 minutes from the ferry Scarborough. One word of caution is that the area ATMs in Castara and Roxborough are often out of order, out of cash, or simply will not accept U.S. debit cards for withdrawals so bring plenty of cash.
The house itself is quite efficient with the outdoor kitchen, the bathroom with natural pebbles, and the bedroom. The WiFi is strong and allowed us to make (website hidden) calls. From Wings, we could be in Speyside, Englishmen's Bay, and Castara within minutes. Many folks we met talked about how the north coast was preferable to the crowded and touristy south coast. Trevor, the host, is well known in the island and has a good reputation. We took a rainforest walk with a guide, Darlington Chance, recommended by Trevor, who was extremely knowledgeable on endemic birds and flora of the island.
What a paradise! This place gave us everything we imagined from a tranquil rainforest experience. The view from the terrace is fantastic, we often sat there gazing into the green and rain. Trevor has amazing positive energy. He has helped us find affordable rent a car which I would highly recommend.
Would love to come back!
I am a 60+ year young male, living alone on a beautiful island ,with a dream to build a nature retreat on this abandon cocoa plantation, the things i cannot live without are my friends, my dreams, the Caribbean Sea, my pick up truck, and a few dollars in the bank.
At the moment I am in love Caribbean, but just came back from a sunny week in London, returned a day before the riots, I am a suduku addict , love walking the trails of the tropical rain forest on the island of Tobago, and when the surfs up, I get out my long board, love food all kinds.
My life motto now is Ease Back.
Take time to live life.
