We rented the Seashell villa 130; but we had a last minute medical emergency that prevented us from going on our trip. We contacted the Caribbean Estates Land & Villas rental agency and told them about our situation. At first they were sympathetic but in the end they ended up not giving us any refund and we had paid the... More

We stayed at this villa for 3 days as a 'chill out' after carnival which was well needed. The grounds and pool were beautiful and well maintained. The villa itself was a little dated, with small rooms, which would have been an issue if we were staying for a longer period of time. The location was perfect with both Pigeon... More

We rented two villas (#140 & #141) for various branches of the family. The pools were well maintained and the maid service in both was excellent. Air con and fans in all the bedrooms. The location is good with easy access to local beaches at Store Bay and Pigeon Point but much of the time the children (and adults) loved... More

We spent 5 glorious days and nights at villa #174 at Sea Shells Villas in Tobago from Jan 21-25, 2007. We were a bit apprehensive as we typically stay at larger chain resorts, but this has definitely set the bar for us in terms of future expectations. If you are not big party people, this is the place for you.The... More

We have just returned from two weeks at Sea Shells. Accomodation was generally very good although we felt our villa was perhaps a little "tired" and the lounge seating could have been a bit more comfortable. Going upstairs to eat was quite a novelty ! The swimming pool was excellent and kept very clean. Each villa is surrounded by trees... More

We were here for three weeks. Though the place was smaller than anticipated we were not disappointed. Very private (street #131) and quiet with vacant lots on all sides and nature reserve at the back. Grounds were very nice with some interesting birds and "wildlife". Agnes, our housekeeper, was the best. Very sweet and helpful. The only complaint is that... More

My husband and I just returned from Tobago with another couple and overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Seashells. However, we did encounter a few "issues" that other visitors may want to take into consideration: - First and most importantly, while the website and the invoices provide rates in USD, the actual charges are made in TT dollars. This... More

This place is absolutely great! We loved sitting on the balcony watching the beautiful birds in the garden. The house was in a very good condition and there was nothing we missed - except a really good moskito-repellent :-) We will come back -for sure! Marina, Ralf, Christiane and Mike

Seashells Villas are pure paradise! Conveniently located for all the action on Tobago but in a private location, the villas themselves are beautifully designed with an upstairs terrace and a downstairs pool area. Each villa has its own pool and some of them have hot tubs. They also each have a housekeeper. Our housekeeper Joan was amazing!! So kind and... More
