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. It is not near the beach and is located in a small mosquito infested neighbourhood bordering a swamp/lagoon. The furniture was plastic and very cheap. In fact after having coffee in the upstairs balcony the next morning I realised that the plastic table was literally propping up by a stick! The kitchen is all the way upstairs and you have to pass through a very small congested stairs to get upstairs. Be careful not to trip on the loose carpet lest you fall and break your neck!The property manager Caribbean Estates were a complete disgrace! We never saw them. We saw a maid a couple days but she was always disinterested and was never helpful. This house is very dusty as if it has not been cleaned in years. The sheets are dusty and mouldy and all of the bridesmaids and the bride started having allergic reactions to the dust. Imagine the bride's mother had to go but detergent and wash the sheets herself to give us some measure of relief.
The house has a swimming pool but it is filthy and was never cleaned while we were there. We were all avoiding the house in the daytime because the filthy surroundings were making everyone sick. The bride was always in tears as she had developed a rash on her skin and my best bet would be from the filthy moldy sheets on her bed. The place is completely unsuitable to be advertised for vacation rental and the authorities responsible for public health on the island should definitely pay a visit.
