I would have given this 3 stars but at the end you will see where it drops. My family stayed there for 4 days after booking it 5 mths prior based on their site information and pictures. Three bedroom house with private pool and a jacuzzi. A jacuzzi! Wahooooooo! We arrived to a beautiful house with a welcoming housekeeper. As... More

I highly recommend the Seashell Villas. We stayed after Carnival for 3 nights in 130. We were 2 couples and 2 singles. The house was super cute and clean with enough space for all of us. The upstairs balcony was the perfect place for breakfast and dinner and the kitchen was equipped with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils that... More

May family stayed at villa 178 from 25 June to 6 July 2013. There are many villas that look the same but just in different lovely tropical colors. The neighborhood is okay with the exception of one area walking distance to these villas. The location of these villas are perfect as it is close to fast food eating places as... More

Looks charming from the outside but this is very misleading. Layout does not flow as the kitchen is located upstairs along with 2 bedrooms and the living room and 1 more bedroom are downstairs. The surrounding swamp causes huge mosquito infestations in the evening so you are forced to stay indoor. The only positive was the cook that came every... More

This property was rented on my behalf by my University friend who was getting married in Tobago in November 2011. I was a bridesmaid and I travelled all the way from the UK to Tobago for the wedding. From the onset on arriving at the place, I realised that it was smaller than was advertised- actually quite congested and claustrophobic.... More

We stayed at Sea shell villa #126 early in 2012 with friends for the most amazing week long vacation! The villa was absolutely gorgeous with all of the amenities of home surrounded by the lush tropical landscaping, beautiful wildlife, and clean ocean air!! The neighborhood itself is well maintained and clean, and the villa is perfect for families to enjoy... More

We stayed at Sea Shells in villa 126 in January 2012 for a week. The house was beautiful, the backyard garden was idyllic with a mangrove forrest behind the property. We especially enjoyed the private pool and full kitchen. The beach was very close and we twice bought fresh seafoood (shark and lobster), and loved cooking it at the house... More

Our group booked with the Villas of Tobago and we were assigned villa # 133. Upon arrival the superficial surroundings were decent but as we examined more closely this was not really the case. The downstairs bathroom hadn't been cleaned, the shower stall was moldy and the sink had mildew. We actually had to call the housekeeper back to clean... More

We (party of 4) stayed at villa 178 and i must say it was wonderful! Our housekeeper Jennifer was pleasant, very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, the downstairs bar needed a little updating...otherwise everything was great. It was very close to the beach and other eating places. Has everything you need, plates, glasses, washer, dryer etc. The only... More
