  • My time at Wings with Trevor was nothing short of impeccable in every aspect imaginable:
    1. The complete and utter beauty of the location; my cabin was surrounded by lush plantlife and I could hear the waterfall from my room! When I peeked out from my balcony I was able to see the ocean in the distance! The views from each of the houses are spectacular!!
    2. Trevor's hospitality; I was traveling alone and Trevor ensured I was comfortable throughout my entire stay! I was extremely fortunate in that he had time to show me and a few other guests around the island so I had a wonderful experience :)
    3.Safety; everyone on the island knows Trevor. I brought my Macbook and iPhone along and never once felt the need to lock my door or close my windows (the only exception for doing so was to keep mosquitoes at bay.)

    You will definitely need to rent a car for this stay as it is located a bit remotely but a quick 5 min drive will bring you to some pristine beaches.
    The mosquitoes are plentiful but given how amazing the place is overall I stopped noticing them after the first day. Do bring bug spray and anti-itch cream or after-bite (I did and I was fine).

    This is definitely the only place to stay if you visit Tobago! After I left Trevor's I stayed at a place down by the beach which wasn't nearly as nice or scenic.

  • This place is magical! The pictures really don't do it justice. We loved our stay here and will definitely be returning. The cottage is so cute and well done, very rustic but you have everything that you need. We loved just hanging out on the porch listening to the birds in the morning (that they are quite loud and will get you up early!) or looking at the stars at night. The location is also great; very close to Englishman's Bay, a beautiful beach that for some reason is not crowded like other nearby beaches and has an excellent little restaurant for roti, and you are also right in the rainforest. The trail down to the waterfall is easy and a lovely walk. Trevor is an excellent host- very warm and helpful. Would recommend without hesitation.

  • Trevor's place is truly a beautiful corner of the world. The cabins are all very tastefully done and in harmony with the surroundings - rainforest, a waterfall and gardens. I had the smallest cabin, which has a balcony over the rainforest - perfect for spotting birds! The beach in Parlutivier is easily in walkable distance and is idyllic, clean and pretty much empty! There are a couple of restaurants there and small shops and not much else. To go further you'd be better off with a car. Trevor was a great host, friendly and very helpful in any way he could be. I felt very at home and didn't want to leave! I recommend a stay here to anyone - especially those who love nature and are looking for peace and tranquility.

  • We stayed here just after New Year and had the most chilled out few days watching the sun set from our balcony overlooking the rainforest. Such a lovely peaceful setting and worth the trek down the precarious hill for a cooling dip in the waterfall. Trevor and Ranger were more than hospitable. One tip for visitors however is to make sure you fill up on petrol, cash and basic provisions before you arrive, eg tea, coffee, sugar, milk, beer, etc as, once there, the nearest shop is in Roxborough and you won't want to be missing the sunset arrive at Trevor's!

  • A piece of paradise Trevor has! We never got a chance to really chat. Will have to wait until next time. Lovely spot, very comfortable.

  • We switched to Xanadu once we saw it! Gorgeous 1 bedroom home with great private infinity pool, full kitchen and spacious bedroom. Other than the gravel road adventures and intermittent power and water outages which were quickly restored, we had a great stay. Thanks Trevor!

  • Our stay at Trevor's place could not have been more perfect. We booked Wings, but wound up staying at his new lodge Xanadu instead. I highly recommend Xanadu if you are able to afford the additional expense. It has a private pool and a superb view. His whole property is lovely - and the private waterfall is gorgeous. Trevor himself was incredibly kind and helpful. The location is rather remote (you should rent a jeep) but a fairly quick drive to several beautiful beaches. We will definitely be back.

  • Our stay with Trevor at Parlatuvier exceeded our expectations. He helped arrange our car rental, called down the hill to order us lunch upon our arrival, gathered useful information for our travels through his extensive network of contacts (Trevor seems to know everyone in Tobago), offered advice on what to see and do and entertained us with stories and insight. He made us feel like a new part of an established community.

    The house is on the northern section of Tobago - great if you want to hit up the rainforest or explore many of the island's bays. If you want to get down to the "city" or the more popular beaches, you'll have to drive. It's about an hour each way, but the twisty roads will keep you interested the entire way. I hate transit, but it's really not so bad even if you have to do it every day.

    If I return to Tobago, I wouldn't want to stay any place else.

  • What a lovely person Trevor is. Kind, caring and considerate. Always available at any time. Stunning place and wonderful waterfall. You can be assured of a wonderful welcome in the forest here.

  • Oh man, where do I begin... This place was AWESOME! Trevor is seriously the best host I've ever worked with, incredibly accommodating, I think he might actually know everyone on the island, and he's just generally an awesome guy. He built all of the properties on his land and they are perfect for the weather in Tobago. Parlatuvier Bay is a short trek down the (rather) steep hill and the swimming is pretty stellar. The cabin itself is clean, organized, and considering your balcony is sitting over the forest, you can't get much closer to the birds or plants around you. Seriously, if you're considering going to Tobago and you don't know where to stay, stay here. (Side note: unless you're super adventurous I would suggest renting a car for your stay. Getting around otherwise can be tricky or can be an incredibly long, wind-y, uphill walk. Both ways.)

About
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.
