I booked this Villa for a three day getaway for my family to celebrate my wedding.I choose it to solve the dual purpose of accommodating some of my visiting relatives and to host my reception party. My correspondence with Hugh and then Silja was always cordial and they were so accommodating of my requests at every step of my planning that I'm eternally thankful for the support they showed me and my guests.The villa (main house and cabanas)itself is so beautiful and the landscaping is phenomenal.The pictures on the website doesn't do this property justice.Each and every one of my guesst were impressed with the aesthetics and amenities of the villa and cannot wait to stay there on their next trip to Tobago.I highly recommend Top 'O' Tobago Villa to anyone that wants to have a relaxing vacation in a clean,serene atmosphere.

Top O' Tobago exceeded my expectations! I believe my Tobago experience is ranked as one of my best vacations, thanks mainly to Silja and Ato. The accommodations are bar none; however, it is the warmth, professionalism, and impeccable service of the managers and staff that would keep me coming back to this wonderful establishment! My daughters and I like to explore new places together, usually on an annual basis. I think, however, at least for the next couple of years, we will have to settle for exploring more and more of Tobago! We are so pleased with everything about Top O' Tobago that we have already begun to plan a return visit for 2013, this time bringing friends from Canada, England and Trinidad! The only improvement I would recommend is to build more cabanas!!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, Silja and Ato - à bientôt!

The grounds are beautiful and well kept. I got the chance to stay in both the cabanas and the main house and both are wonderful to stay in. The cabanas have necessities you need to cook and it was cleaned frequently. There are movies to borrow as well as snorkels and Arnosvale beach is 5minutes away.

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day vacation in Tobago. Our accommodations were great. The view from Top O' Tobago is absolutely amazing. Camille and Derek were great hosts and made us feel welcome. We loved the fact that there was a grill by the pool and we were able to go to the Mt. Irvine fish market and purchase whatever the fisherman had brought it. It was wonderful grilling fresh fish and serving it with a salad made from fresh produce from the roadside stand.

Breakfast on the covered patio was great. We enjoyed seeing the birds. The MotMots would sit on the back of one of the chairs and wait be get a piece of toast.

We really appreciated the guide book in our cabana and used it to look at things to do and places to eat. The hand drawn maps were very helpful the few times we got lost. We had a car and were able to explore the entire island. We are sure that the location that we choose was the best on the island. It was so close to many of the things we wanted to do.

We have just returned from 2 weeks at TOT - and loved every minute. The views are spectacular - gardens immaculate, but welcome exploring - accommodation is just right, comfortable, everything you need, extremely well cared for.
We felt very much at home - Camille and Derek made us so welcome, and took care of everything - always there to help, whilst giving you all the space and freedom toshare their wonderful Tobagoan Villa/Home.

Excellent resources mean you can explore so much of the island - a lady on a beach I met was quite jealous when I told her of the inf guide we had - her hotel gave very little and she was very uninformed about the island. We saw so much, thanks to the little maps Hugh had drawn up, and so easy to follow to do walks without a guide - and find our way back. We tried most of the restaurants - but once we discovered Chicken Roti at lunchtime, we opted for that more than eating out in the evenings. Cooking an evening meal was great fun, and gave us opportunity to savour the gardens and poolside patio and bar b q


My only disappointment was the beach at Arnos Vale is extremely quiet - most days nobody there at all, and the Arnos Vale hotel now closed, except for a man patrolling the beach front meant I felt reluctant to swim there on my own. However, on Sundays, the beach is a hive of local activity - boys playing entertaining football, and no beach hawkers, make it a wonderful place to picnic. The walk back up the hill through the grounds is extremely steep, lots of steps, so I chose the longer way round, up the hill and road. - It still only took about 10 minutes.

There is now a road to the beach from Plymouth, but you would need a car to access this, and for stocking up with groceries and eating out. You can feel quite isolated at TOT . due to the location, but this was the real pleasure of the place for us.

Once we had a car, we could explore the island, then come back to the peace, and views of our island paradise.

The pool feels as if you're swimming in the "sky" - fruits and coconut milk from the garden for breakfast - humming birds feeding as you eat.your cereal - "such bliss".

If you like a taste of Tobagoan luxury - and enjoy peace and quite - , TOT is the place (YeH Man)!!

Room Tip: Cabanas face the hillside and gardens as it is cooler, the views are from the main Villa and patio/s...

A perfect base for those wanting some peace and quiet on their holiday. The Top O' Tobago is situated on top of quite a steep hill, especially if you are walking. As such it enjoys fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and coast. The nearest beach is less than a 10 minute walk away and it is well worth the walk. The website describes the accommodation perfectly, with no exaggeration. We stayed a week in a Cabana. It was perfect. Well decorated all mod cons. A small outdoor area with table, chairs and even a hammock if you wanted. Just up a few steps is the pool area and main house with panoramic views. We can't find fault with Top O' Tobago. All we would say is that being self catering you do need a car to get to restaurants/ shops etc. A big thankyou to Hugh who was around to offer help and advice throughout our holiday. He certainly does know the island and this helped us make the most of our time exploring. Overall this is a site that pleases both beach and countryside lovers.
